Managed to watch Blood:The Last Vampire (2009).
The movie is more like graphic novels.....due to the graphic splattering of bloods and slow moving scenes. Jun Ji-Hyun as Saya is very convincing, a brooding vampire slayer wearing a school girl's uniform. The sceneries are also very beautiful, well it does reminds me of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. The mood are also appropriate, very much like the actual anime movie.
However, the chiropterans are a major let down. Too small (in the anime, they were towering over humans) and too rubbery to be realistic. Sometimes felt like watching Ultraman's monster.
I would give 2 out of 5.
Anime - Movie
Anime - Blood+

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.

To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
