Sum it up in a Sentence:
Crazy chick with secret vampire powers she didn't know about tears shit up.
There are two major groups involved in an eternal war. The first group consists of monsters known as Chiropterans who can change their appearances into that of human beings. The second group is an organisation known as the "Red Shield", formed to track down these monsters and exterminate them. Otonashi Saya is a high-school girl who lives a peaceful life with her family. The only problem is, she has no recollections of her life beyond that of the past year...

It's been awhile since I've seen this so I can't get too detailed but the show has a very nice strong opening. It's an entertaining show with some interesting characters but the show drags out a little too much. I did enjoy it though but I would not consider this a first tier show.
The original Blood: The Last Vampire told more or less the same story in 50 minutes that this series tells in 50 episodes. Yes, there is more detail thanks to the extra run time. No, it isn't worth sitting through 50 episodes worth of it. A decent editor could probably cut the runtime in half without losing any meat, and drastically improving the narrative.
There is a decently cool story being told here, with some particularly enjoyable characters, but it can be difficult to actually get to them through the at times agonizingly slow pace the show hits on more than one occasion. If you can endure the narrative's lapses of focus, it's watchable- a good show to have on in the background or something, not a great one if you want to be engrossed in every second. A real shame.
