Ultraviolet: Code 044
Looks like our prayers have been answered. That sexy hemophage rebel with the change-color-at-will-wig-and-outfit is coming back in a twelve episode anime! Seriously, who saw that one coming? Even though Kurt Wimmer’s vampire/sci-fi/action flick tanked in the States, it had a pretty decent run in Japan -- grossing around 2.8 million, more than “Underworld” (1.6 mil), “Underworld: Evolution” (1.9 mil), or “Hellboy” (586k). I’m guessing that life on DVD eventually put the 30 million dollar production in the black. What if the series drums up enough interest for a sequel? Hey, stranger things have happened.
