BLOOD-C: The Last Dark and Sakura Wars are our new releases for today! So, let’s get started and take a closer look.
First up, BLOOD-C: The Last Dark on BD/DVD Combo! Combining killer action from the creators of Ghost in the Shell with hauntingly beautiful art from the markers of X, this award-winning film is the latest masterpiece in the Blood: The Last Vampire franchise.
Saya is part human, part monster, and has one thing on her mind: REVENGE. Visions of twisted experiments and creatures slaughtering everyone she loved fuel her thirst for vengeance. With blade in hand and rage boiling in her veins, she tracks her tormentor to Tokyo—where flesh-hungry beasts have begun to feed. There, she joins a group of young hackers hunting for the same man. As Saya slices her way through lies, traps, flesh, and bone, how much blood will she shed to cut down the mastermind behind her madness?
