  • No plot, no variation
    I started watching this anime because it looked like it could be fun. I've been looking for a vampire anime for a while, and this seemed to meet what I was looking for... Gods, was I wrong. I got through 2 episodes, thinking it would get better, but it didn't. I then went online and looked at the rest of the episode summaries on the Wiki. The character designs and the animation itself are ...

  • She is not your play thing!!
    Animation 3/5
    The animation was fine, but it does not over rule the fact that the story is awful! Beautiful hair and shiny eyes.

    Characters 1/5
    Another dull girl with no personality or power of her own. None of the "hot" boys really loved her, they just wanted to keep her around for their entertainment. Disgusting!!!

    Story 1/5
    I hated the dynamics between the boys ...

  • Remember, She's Their Food
    It may look like an otome type romance but it's a dark, psychological horror. And if you're a new viewer there are 3 things you must remember: She is their food, They have baggage, and we are watching Yui's story unfold. Yui's story. We are observers

    Watch Something Else
    If you're looking for a reverse harem anime along the lines of Ouran High School Host Club, you're probably not looking for something like Diabolik Lovers.
    I'm not surprised to say that I did not enjoy Diabolik Lovers. It was an uncomfortable and boring experience.

    Diabolik Lovers takes sexual harassment and abuse to an intolerable level. If you are not comfortable with a female protagonist ...

  • I need to take anger management after watching this
    The only word I can use to describe this is degrading. I love dark plots and characters - give me violence, horror, twisted characters etc. - but I think it's important to appreciate the difference between gritty entertainment and misogynistic garbage. Even as an otome game I struggle to see how this would work, but as an anime it's so downright horrifying it's almost funny. I couldn't have made ...

    Time of my life i'll never get back
    Seriously, why? what is this? who on earth wrote the story and what was he/she thinking? this is disgraceful. The art is good though... but then again what the heck is this?
    I was quiet at first and said to myself "well, maybe it'll get better after some episodes" but what a mistake... Totally disappointed and sick of this apple skin biting sound.
    The story is just... i don't know what it is.. ...

  • Did not enjoy but great art
    The story was not for me.
    Mainly because its the same every episode, with being abused by the male vampires, and the heroine is very submissive.
    I also thought the "surprise" though surprising, was not overly clever or entertaining. Started season 2 and much the same there.
    This is IMO bad reverse harem and has all the elements that annoy me about the genre.
    If you are watching thinking it ...

  • Diabolik Lovers: Like a Trainwreck, You Can Not Look Away...
    This anime should be a right of passage for Crunchyroll subscribers: every time Yui Komori (the main 'character') gets bitten, drink a shot. By the time you stagger into the sequel, "DiabolikLovers+" (...HURR HURR, DO YOU GET IT?!! BLOOD TYPES CAN BE RHESUS FACTOR POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE AND THIS IS AN ADDITIONAL SEQUEL THEREFORE IT IS DIABOLIK LOVERS PLUS........) you will either:
    a) Be on ...

  • Diabolik, not for everyone
    You will either immensely enjoy this or overly hate it.

    It is very true to most descriptions of a Vampire's behavior in the fact that they only care about themselves and their own pleasures/hunger and not those of their victim. This only has touches of "romance" but there isn't any overall romance in it. The main character IS abused and treated like a caprisun but that's kind of to be expected ...

  • it gets better throughout the series!
    I've looked through reviews and felt quite upset. For a while I was disgusted with myself for enjoying this anime. As- I really do enjoy it. However, then I realized some things. These people who are reviewing this have only watched a few episodes of it. I understand where these people are coming from, definitely. But if you progress in the series a bit more- then you will see better plots. ...
