    Why do I watch this?
    I read through the comments and some people who are leaving low ratings aren't hitting the correct points and don't seem to know what some of the words mean that they use in their review.

    I have seen plenty of vampire movies and anime and read nearly two dozen vampire novels including fiction and nonfiction. The vampires in this anime are perfect. If you're not into abuse and sexual, ...

    Basically a Twilight rape fantasy...
    In short: Do not waste your time on this unless you are in to boring rape fantasies and being bitten and abused on a daily basis.

    At first, I thought this looked interesting. The beginning of the first episode when the female protagonist arrives at the house hooked me on and kept me hoping for more of the same... At least for three episode which was when I decided to drop the ...

    Perverse and Plotless
    I can't remember the last time an anime made me this furious. All of the male characters are abusive dickwads that ought to be slapped in the face but the main character doesn't really seem to care about her own self respect to do anything about their bullying and sexual assaults. If you're into masochism, this show is your ticket to heaven. Otherwise, be aware that the moral to this show runs ...

    Hidden details and hints you must to pay attention to!
    This anime should get more credit because of its amazing artwork, also the plot of diabolik lovers starts to develop slowly if you just pay close attention to it. The author of this show purposely wanted to develop the plot slowly to foreshadow that is really going to happen, for this reason the author decided to make the watcher think another way because they want to surprise the watcher, when ...

    Infuriating psychological torture
    I have watched the first 2 episodes and I am at my limit with how horrible the poor girl is being treated. If you put yourself in her shoes this would be a traumatizing experience. She has essentially been kidnapped, threatened to be killed many times, almost drowned on purpose, and used as a food source like livestock. The guys have zero respect for life, only refraining from killing her because ...

    Should've Just Been a Hentai
    Seriously.

    This anime is short first off - a mere 15 minutes. Most of which being preoccupied by our heroine being ra... having her blood sucked.

    Literally nothing else goes on but our heroine walking around and being assaulted.

    We already know there's no plot, they should've at least thrown a bone and redeemed itself by just being a bloody hentai. It's always virtually on the cusp if ...

    Plot? Who needs plot?
    For starters, I am not going to say I didn't like this anime because it doesn't follow the vampire myths and stuff. That's not why I disliked it.
    The art was great and I actually liked some of the characters and wanted to like this anime. I just couldn't like it.
    There was absolutely zero plot in this. They threw in plot elements that could have led somewhere only to say "Meh, screw it." and ...

    Distrubing, horrible, and pointless
    I'm really questioning why Crunchyroll would agree to stream an anime that promotes verbal, physical, and sexual abuse. I'm seething with rage after every episode due to the rape symbolism (and sometimes blatant attempted rape scenes). It's just so disappointing. The story isn't even compelling. It's just 15 minutes of torture for the female protagonist. I also think that because of the ...

    A disappointing addition to a still small-ish genre here
    WARNING! This is a very long review! Apologies in advance! (The TL;DR version is: Unless your tastes run towards the masochistic, you might instead want to try Uta no Prince-sama, La Corda d'Oro, or Skip Beat! for some romantic/harem shoujo, or, if you're in the mood for something a little darker/less happy-happy, Hakuouki, Neo Angelique Abyss, or Glass Mask might be up your alley.)

    Some will like it and others will not..
    First off, coming from being the fan of the PSP game and now its in anime form. I was really excited for its release. I'm a bit disappoint of the length but still I for one enjoyed it overall.

    I do admit this series may not be for everyone but if you come in with an open-mind and give it chance you may like it but if you don't at least you tried it. Some people don't seem to like the series so ...
