Anime: Blood-C: The Last Dark

"A prize for the winner. A penalty for the loser"
Saya Kisaragi

Blood-C: The Last Dark is a movie sequel of the TV series which is produced and collaborated by Production I.G and CLAMP. It was released in June 2, 2012 and is licensed by Funimation, along with the TV series.

It continues where the TV series left off: Saya pursues her revenge against Fumito Nanahara, who is responsible for the events that took place in the Ukishima province. One year later, Fumito takes control of Tokyo by imposing the Youth Ordinance Bill (or "Youth Protection Act", if you will) which restricts the use of the internet and sets a curfew for minors. Upon arriving at Tokyo, Saya encounters a humanoid Elder Bairn in the subway who, then kidnaps a girl. Saya slays the Elder Bairn and saves the girl, whose name is Mana Hiiragi, a member of a resistance group called SIRRUT. Knowing who she is, SIRRUT request Saya to help them take down Fumito and his organization, Tower. With no other choice, Saya agrees to provide assistance and they prepared themselves for the final battle.

Be warned: spoilers from the TV series will be left unmarked if you haven't seen it.

    • Non-Action Big Bad: Of course, Fumito is only good in scheming and lets Kuto do the heavy work.
  • Big Damn Heroes: At the beginning of the movie, Saya saves Mana from the Elder Bairn. And later, Matsuo saved them both from Kuto.
  • The Big Damn Kiss: Fumito gives this to Saya as a "reward".
  • Big Damn Movie: It even received money from the Japanese government!

  • Crossover: Kimihiro Watanuki has officially entered the Blood universe for only four minutes. He also appears in the manga except his face is covered due to copyright reasons.
  • Darker and Edgier: Unlike the TV series, the movie shows how very serious and dark it is. The violence and gore are even toned down a bit and the death count was minimized.
  • The Dragon: Kuto
  • Dragon-in-Chief: Kuroto plays this role nicely.
  • Evil Cripple: Kuroto before the climax.
  • Expy:
    • Mana is similar to Amano, the nurse from the original OVA. Both of them want to understand Saya's nature and follows her everywhere.
    • She is also very similar to Kai of Blood+. Both of them see Saya as a human and not a monster. They also lost both their dads who were transformed into monsters and killed by Saya.

  • Knight in Sour Armor: Saya.
  • I Own This Town: Though he's not really a politician, Fumito has more influence.
  • It's Personal: Saya's revenge against Fumito. Mana only joins Sirrut just to look for her missing father. And Kuroto only helps Sirrut because Fumito is responsible for losing his ability to walk and for the deaths of his family But it turns out that he's in league with him.

  • Not in This for Your Revolution: Saya only joins SIRRUT so she can carry out her revenge against Fumito and kill him. the same can be said for Mana, whose only concern is to find her dad.
  • Now What?: After Fumito dies, Saya feels lonely again. She didn't return to Mana since she didn't want her to find out that she killed her dad.
  • One-Winged Angel: Kuroto transformed into this in the end.
  • Playful Hacker: Tsukayomi and Mana, however, the latter is by far more skilled one.
  • Pyrrhic Victory: For Saya's case, she fulfilled her revenge but it made her lonely and since she killed Mana's dad, she didn't go back to her again so she wouldn't find out.
