In one movie, a character says that the Japanese take the best of what the world has to offer and make them better. In a way this is true for the movie Blood: The Last Vampire, which is about a Japanese schoolgirl who's half human half vampire. For some reason, she's angry with blood-sucking demons and wants to kill them all (the post WW2 japanese government in the story has a lot to do with it).
The movie has teen elements found in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and also more adult ideas found in the Blade movie series. It's basically an anime-turned-into-a-movie flick with fantasy-girl elements that fans of Japanese anime want to see. The cute monster-fighting samurai girl in school uniform named Saya is at the top of the list. Other elements include the old white-bearded fighting man, and the beautiful-but-deadly nemesis with lethal robe extensions - all of which would be lucrative as action figures and other movie collectibles.
Blood: The Last Vampire is based on the popular series of the same title and brought to the big screen by a producer of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. It's from Sony Pictures and stars rising Korean actress Gianna Jun as Saya.
