Our Ranking

short review:

This is a great old-school-style anime. You definitely can see the handiwork of Toyoo Ashida, who brought us "Fist Of The North Star". This film is violent, consequent and very bloody. It features some great vampire artwork, and a hell of a protagonist. For Otakus a must-see and for all you bloodsuckers out there, definitely worth a look!
