1. Setting/plot: steampunk Vatican uses "ancient technology" (read: cyborgs with all manners of implants, CDs, advanced tracking systems, cruise missles) to kill vampires.

"Ancient technology!!!!" is usually called out (with multiple gasps!), but it's still difficult to discern what is AT and what isn't, and why so much of it survived the rarely-referenced Armaggedon. Computer-controlled airships and holograms are standard, but no one understands how a heat-seeking missle works? Really?

2. I can have a steady conversation with my partner and still know what's going on in the show. There's about 250% more exposition than needs to be given, and characters are constantly explaining not only their actions, but their costars'. It's like they think they have an audience with an average age of five when it comes to plot details, but then they ramp up the gore and violence to--an admittedly beautifully-drawn--eleven.

3. The main character is a vampire-version of Vash from Trigun. Other characters range from fairly interesting to annoying, but their allegiances and motives are always obvious (see pt. 2).

4. And finally, my favorite, the dialogue!
a. The resident Arnold-sounding android says, "I will terminate you" twice in about a minute.
b. "Sir! The Thrust Bomb! It's ... it prematurely exploded!"
