The full moon shines in the sky. In the light, a red shadow runs like gust. Holding a Japanese sword in his hand, he jumps from a building to a building. He’s running, in order to retrieve his brother, in order to realize his dream, and… When he identifies the enemy, he grins with shining his fang because he knows he can beat any enemy now. The Special Area - it is the only place where the vampire, which is supposed to exterminate, and the human beings can cohabitate. In the place, when two vampires, Mochizuki Kojiro and his brother Kotaro, and a human being, Katsuragi Mimiko, meet together, their new fates begin to hatch.

The story of life and death colored by black and red, and the vampires that transcend them begins. You’ll be the witness of the legend of bloody race living in the shadow.

A decent vampire action title, Black Blood Brothers explores Jiro's dealings with the race of vampires known as the Kowloon Children as he tries settling into the vampire colony, the Special Zone, with his brother, Kotaro. The series introduces a colorful cast of characters, a good number of whom are connected to Jiro's past which the series does a good amount of fleshing out of, whom are entertaining to see in personality and/ or in action from the charismatic and somewhat wild Zelman Clock to Jiro's cunning old ally Cassandra Jill Warlock. The plot focused around the Kowloon Children provides for both the central conflict of this series and being a major element of Jiro's past, providing both an entertaining conflict for a vampire series and some great fleshing out of Jiro's character. The series does suffer from some unresolved plot developments (particularly the lack of a proper ending), subpar animation during action scenes with enough shortcuts apparent and hit-or-miss comedic delivery. But if you are looking for a decent vampire-focused series, you can't go wrong with Black Blood Brothers.

Entertaining but I'm confused, is this Hellsing or Ouran Host Club?
