 Saya and Haji-Blood +Saya & Haji

Saya Otanashi is so far just an amnesiac teenage girl. Yet, behind the surface she comes to discover in an event that will change her life forever that she isn’t human at all. Saya is a member of chiropracterans (vampires but like the type you’d never expect at all, way freakier). Thse chiropterans live on blood and murder humans. She’s also one of the few of her species. She alone can destroy these ugly monsters. Her blood contains amazing attributes that eventually destroy them. Saya must for the most part throughout struggle to recall her origins along with her very attractive protector Haji. Who I should say is bound to her most of the time.


Nobody is willing who knows of what Saya is capable to tell her because as you soon realize is a closely guarded secret for a reason. That’s until, BAM!, we are introduced to Diva. Diva is Saya’s sister. She couldn’t be bothered. What she reveals to Saya and not at all gently turns Saya’s world into a void of uncertainty. Saya somehow finds the strength to get over her past which is very turbulent. As we travel with Saya in the series, her adoptive human family, also make themselves available to assist her in destroying the chiropterans that are very bloodthirsty. Blood + has some of the most appealing animation I have witnessed. Contains the best drama which includes plot twists just so you know. In short an amazing anime watch that fans of anime with a taste of Science Fiction will love forever. Recommend so much!
