Blood: The Last Vampire now in live action

Yesterday mrpet and I picked up a matinee of the new live action version of Blood: The Last Vampire. For anyone who didn't see the anime of 2000, it's simply the last word in lesbian schoolgirl vampires who hunt demons. Not a lot of competition in the category, granted, but I am so glad there even IS a category. I am an uncritical audience when it comes to women in schoolgirl uniforms toting heavy weaponry, and I'm not ashamed.

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."
Alice: "Ummm...okay.."
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.
