Some characters from BBB

Background Information

Black Blood Brothers is a light novel series written by Kohei Azano and illustrated by Yuuya Kusaka. In 2006 an anime based on the series was produced, directed by Hiroaki Yoshikawa. It has been licensed for North American release by FUNimation Entertainment, with the first DVD being released in February 2008.

During a fictional war called the Hong Kong Crusade, an Old Blood vampire, Jiro Mochizuki, a.k.a. the Silver Blade, fought and defeated the Kowloon King and also most of the Kowloon Children. Ten years later, Jiro heads to Japan with his little brother, Kotaro, in hopes of reaching The Special Zone, a thriving secret city where vampires live. They soon realize that a plan to infiltrate The Special Zone is being hatched by the Kowloon Children survivors. As they travel to The Special Zone, Jiro encounters enemies from the past and new threats that may endanger the safety of the Special Zone. The abduction of Kotaro, by one of the Kowloon Children, thrusts him even further into the battle.

The anime series (from which these profiles are based) is reasonably powerful, but whilst some characters are implied to be quite strong, few of them ever fight seriously.
