Blood-C (2011)


Saya seemed like an average high-school girl who was kind yet clumsy. her father was the head of a shrine, teaching her the art of sword, using a katana passed down by the shrine, named Goshintou. she was faced with various kind of trials, having to defend her hometown from demons known as Furikimono that preyed on unnoticed humans.

first of all, Saya's combination of being both clumsy and talented with sword turned out to be a huge contradiction far from our acceptable or understandable range. the anime pushed this logic so far that made Saya seemed like a fake in front of her friends. for the first few episodes, the sequence of going through a normal day in the morning and fighting demonic creatures at night failed to engage us. as for the remaining anime, it was just sitting back and dragging ourselves through the anime waiting for its climax. the gruesome deaths of many seemingly unimportant characters were interesting to watch, putting the spotlight on people not being who they appeared to be.
