For anyone who did see the anime, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with the live action. I certainly was.
First scene begins with Saya breaking Alice out of a mental institution.
Saya: "Aliss. I need you. Le's go."
Alice: "I always knew you would come for me! I have never forgotten the time we shared... the feeling of you drinking my blood... but why has it been three years?"
Saya: "Thought you were dead. Found a girl looks just like you. She dead now."
Saya: "Need to go."
*grabs Alice's arm, pulls her out the window*
ETA: In retrospect, what is so funny about this is that the lesbian subtext I remembered so clearly from the anime? Wasn't there at all.
