Learn Japanese with Anime: “Blood-C” (Intermediate Level)


Webmaster Review

71% Excellent

Although this anime is notable for its low evaluation, the story is my favorite story because the spoilers in the latter half are shocking. The protagonist has strong strength and dozi-kid elements but is not very attractive. I don't like this character design. The world view that will be revealed in the second half is shocking and interesting.

The action scene drawing moves very well and the terrible depiction is excellent. Blood splash and blood splash. Like. The sound matched to the action is also very good for horror. Everyday scenes can also be produced with normal sound. This is very important. Especially BGM, which is the theme music, is very unique and creepy.
Except for the last impact, there are many similar works, but the strength and exaggeration of the last is enough personality, quite scary.

2. Synopsis

Blood-C is set in an isolated rural town on the shore of Lake Suwa in Nagano Prefecture. Saya Kisaragi is the shrine maiden of the Shinto shrine run by her father Tadayoshi, and is outwardly a friendly and clumsy high school girl—her circle of friends include neighbor and cafe owner Fumito Nanahara; school friends Yūka Amino, twins Nene and Nono Motoe, class president Itsuki Tomofusa, the taciturn Shinichirō Tokizane; and Saya’s schoolroom teacher Kanako Tsutsutori.

But while living a normal school life by day, Saya and her father spend the night defending the village against Elder Bairns, monsters who possess inanimate objects to stalk humans and feed on their blood. Saya’s skills in the “art of the sword” enable her to defeat the Elder Bairns, but those capable of speech accuse Saya and the humans of violating a covenant dubbed “Shrovetide”. Saya also encounters a talking dog which says it is here to grant someone’s wish, and suffers from blanks in her memory and is pained by headaches whenever she tries to remember.

3. Intermediate can Learn Japanese with This Anime

Needless to say, there are many splatter depictions that are not a part of learning Japanese. The main characters are all correct Japanese, but “old men” are difficult to understand because they use old-fashioned and old words. It is particularly difficult to see classic monsters that are not used in modern times and religious terms related to Shinto. The main character is a shrine maiden with a background of Shinto, so it would be good to know part of Japanese culture (but it goes without saying that there is a problem as a learning subject in the first place, it is an interesting anime)
