Saya Kisaragi is a kindhearted, if somewhat clumsy, student who trains by day to perform standard religious duties at her father’s shrine — but she becomes an unstoppable, monster-slaying swordswoman by night! The saga that began in Blood: The Last Vampire and the Blood+ anime series continues here! The world of Blood-C was created by the powerhouse manga team CLAMP in collaboration with Production I.G, the legendary anime studio that produced the original Blood+ episodes and the new Blood-C animated series and feature-length movie! Don’t miss the schoolyard foibles, weird creatures, and katana-swinging action in this new manga series by Ranmaru Kotone, based on the hit Blood-C anime and infused with CLAMP’s original concepts and characters!
Saya and her father live in a little rural town. Although Saya may appear to be an ordinary schoolgirl, she is a demon slayer. While it may seem like nothing much is going on every day, Saya and her father know better. They know that the evil ones are incredibly strong and they are devouring humans at night. Wielding the divine blade, Saya vows to destroy the demons. She is determined to protect the innocence and restore peace to the place where she calls home.
I like Saya. She is a sweet teenager with a kind heart. She is friendly to her classmates and she cares about stray animals. Her friends and neighbors adore her. Even though Saya may not feel like demonstrating her demon-slaying abilities in front of her friends, I like that she tries her best to live a normal life whenever she can.
Perhaps because this is volume one, not that many things are revealed as of yet but I like that quite a number of characters are introduced and they seem to be a lively bunch with distinctive personalities. I’m particularly fond of the sidekicks, Nono and Nene – they are twins and they are super cute! I believe the next volume will be out in June and I have a good feeling that the plot will become a lot more interesting. Can’t wait to get my hands on volume 02. 🙂
