I just checked out the new Blood anime since I loved the movie and original series so much. It's called Blood-C and first episodes was alright, it had no where near the impact the original series did in the first episodes but it still seems very promising. Some of the elements that I liked so much about Blood+ appear to be completely gone this time around, which is a letdown, but who knows? maybe they will be replaced them with some new neat ideas.
I would have still prefered a sequel to Blood+, tho. :(
