The question is > Do " Serious " Vampire stories work?. I used to be really anti-serious-vampire stories ( non comedy ), cos I found them boring, tedious and ridiculous. I avoided all anime with this genre: Vampire ( with out comedy/ parody). But now after seeing Blood+ I have changed my mind about this genre :).
However I still believe that it is hard to make " good " Vampire-anime.

What is Your opinion on this?

Hellsing is the best anime I've ever watched, it's my all-time fave. And yeah Trinity Blood is also a good one, despite of the fact they screwed up the ending in my opinion...read the manga that's somewhat better (but the animation and the costume desgin is fabulous)..

I remember watching the OVA of Vampire Princess Miyu. Pretty dark story itself.

Blood+ is the only vampire related anime that I have enjoyed. Trinity Blood would have been there too had it not been for the last episode and the lack of any kind of ending. -_-

I like Hellseing (especially the Ova), Shingetsutan Tsukihime (although it's not totally about vampire), Blood: the last vampire

Usually I'm the opposite. No...not usually, I'm totally the opposite. Vampire are such fascinating creatures that watching them solely as a comedy is insulting.

By this I don't want to imply I'm an angst-lover b/c it couldn't be more far from reality. I just thing seing their eternal existence only as comedy is sad. Surely there can be funny vampire stories who are not idiots and who actually have a plot.

My choices? Hellsing (the manga, the anime was shameful) and the Vampire Chronicles of Anne Rice (it's not manga or anime, but still is my fav series of books). Vampire Hunter D is so so, altough I did liked the second movie, and the first one I remember watching it when I was 8 yrs old on cartoon network and I was like, wow...tits, and blood...

But in any case, I have heard trinity blood is quite good but I only have access to the anime and after watching the first 8 episodes I found no reason to continue. First the main character is the classical guy who acts studip but has a dark and tragic past and goes "I'm really badass" at battles and well...that cliche is kinda' tiring...

Also I ABSOLUTELY HATED the red head girl...she's the type of girl that can make me hate a series to dangerous points...

After that I learned a bit more about what was come and when I tried to download what was left it was already lisenced so no torrents...bad luck...

Anyway...those were my thoughts and choices...

Tsukihime is easily the best vampire anime I've seen..and it took me places I had never been before, and I'll never look back! It turned me into a TYPE-MOON fan, and introduced me to the world of visual novels.

So yeah, there one that I definitely think worked.

Never watched vampire anime before, but always wanted to try Vampire Hunter D for awhile. I think I saw it on VHS in my house somewhere...
