Trinity Blood is a captivating anime fantasy series that takes place in the distant future. The show is set in a world where technology has advanced beyond human imagination and where vampires and humans coexist, albeit with a lot of tension between them. WOWOW produced this anime in 2005.

The main protagonist, Abel Nightroad, is introduced as a gentle and kind-hearted priest who belongs to a secret society, Vatican Section 13. His job is to protect the Vatican, the Holy See, and humanity from the hidden dangers of the world. Abel is a Crusnik, an artificial creature that feeds on the blood of vampires, and he is the only one of his kind. His dark past is revealed as the series progresses, and he becomes a key player in a deadly conflict that could lead to the destruction of the human race.

Opposite Abel is Radu Barvon, who is the leader of the Methuselah, a group of powerful vampires that have evolved beyond humans. Radu is shown to be cunning and manipulative, and his ultimate goal is to create a new world where pure-blooded vampires reign supreme.

The series also introduces a wide range of characters, including Esther Blanchett, a young nun who travels with Abel and becomes his ally. She is strong-willed and determined to fight for what she believes is right, even if it means going against the Vatican's orders. Esther is also the Queen of Albion and inherits a lot of responsibility with her title. The struggle for power and the weight of her duties weigh heavily on her throughout the series.

Another significant character is Ax, a skilled cyborg who is feared by the Vatican and Methuselah alike. He is assigned to protect Esther and becomes her loyal bodyguard. Ax is portrayed as calculating and unemotional, but his journey to discover who he is and what his purpose in this world is, develops throughout the series.

The show also explores the inner workings of the Vatican and introduces a range of characters who are involved in a power struggle within the organization. One of these characters is Cardinal Caterina Sforza, who is the head of Vatican Section 13. She is a strong and capable leader, but her decisions are not always popular with her subordinates. She is often at odds with the Vatican's bureaucracy, which complicates her efforts to protect the church and the innocent.

The series's animation quality is brilliant and is worth mentioning. The designs for the cities and characters are detailed and visually stunning. The series's soundtrack is also beautiful, with music that enhances the emotionally charged moments of the show.

In conclusion, Trinity Blood is a well-crafted anime series that blends action, drama, and supernatural elements. It has a solid script, with complex characters that develop throughout the series. The story is engaging, and the animation is beautiful. Overall, it is an impressive show that is sure to captivate anime fans who are looking for something dark and thought-provoking.
