• Saw the anime movie again, and it's actually pretty violent. There are quite a number of scenes where Saya must use her sword to kill vampires in fairly grotesque blood splatter way. I am hoping this movie doesn't turn out to be another Underworld and am quite skeptical right now. Typically, anime/manga movies to live-action don't fare well including *another* vampire movie into the already oversaturated market. Let's hope for the best!

• Anime sites/forums are starting to notice that Blood will be remade into a live action movie.

• Here are some recommended anime sites/forums to catch up on what this anime is about:

    Anime News Network
    Animesuki Forms
    Animeworld Review

• I have watched the anime movie before. It is a little violent, and I'd expect this movie to be rated 'R' when it comes out in the states if it wants to retain true to the manga/movie.
