    As a Non-BL fan I've...
    I won't lie, I'm one of the rare breed of female anime fans that have never gotten into the whole BL and yaoi thing, and just do not see the appeal of it. However, I wanted to check this out because I have always loved the character designs. I can tell the series is definitely geared to those who are familiar with the game, of which I haven't played and have no desire to do so. I do like the first ...

    I didn't know it was BL!
    I'm a guy, a straight guy but don't be too put off from it being a BL because it has a great variety of characters with brilliant vibrant art too and an addictive plot (great soundtrack also). To me though I'm going to blank out the upcoming 'BL' parts otherwise I'll start getting slightly worried and 'bicurious' lol jk, give it a watch hope you enjoy!!

    I'VE BEEN WAITING!!!
    I have been waiting for this anime ever since I heard about it. I love DRAMAtical Murder and Re:connect. This first episode was pretty close to how the common route is so far. I'm enjoying it. This anime also made them sexier. I can't wait for the next episode!

    Had to Stop Watching
    Made it half way through Episode 7 and finally had to stop; removed it from my queue.

    I came into this without knowing it was BL or based off a game. The written summary was pretty straight forward and caught my attention. The animation didn't bother me as much as it did others. Character design was creative and loud, but individually seemed out of place in comparison to the backdrops/other ...

    Good, but one thing truly concerns me.
    I am reading other reviews and reading how some people can't wait for the yaoi or any similar scenes, and I honestly can't take those reviews seriously, and I am merely voicing my opinion now to challenge those. Most anime now are really tame (In terms of any explicit action.). In the multitudes of anime I have seen in the past 2 years or so, unless it was specifically labeled as 18+, anime could ...

    Play the visual novel
    The anime so far has followed the vn pretty well. It's not going to be perfect, period. The animation could be better, and it definitely doesn't do justice to the amazing artwork the game had. However, low expectations, and a love for the story, keeps it tolerable. The ones who will appreciate the anime, are going to be previous fans. If you are interested, please download the game. You won't be ...

    Butchered Version of the Original Game
    I'm gonna start this off saying this is my first anime review, because this is the first thing I've ever been compelled to write criticisms about. This is mostly due to the huge disappointment as a fan of the original game. So keep in mind, this will be a negative review from the perspective of someone who deeply enjoyed the original source material.

    When I heard Dramatical Murder was getting ...

    A bit underwhelming for people new to the series
    Firstly, I need to point out that I'm a massive fan of the original visual novel.
    It's an amazing game, and if your a major BL fan (like myself) you'll adore it too. (But only for those 18+ please. :3 Aoba gets quite a lot of action if you know what I mean.)

    Now the real question is, how does this game transition into an anime?
    It does an "okay" job at it so far. The story starts out ...

    Interesting take on the VN
    I'm a huge fan of the visual novel so I was excited to watch the show. For the common route, they followed the script pretty similarly, which was totally fine since it was exciting just to see certain parts animated (like Rhyme battles and anything involving Clear).

    I'm really liking how they're combining all the routes in the show and putting an interesting spin on it in order to be able to ...

    Addictive and Heart Stealing
    I started watching this anime after seeing some gifs floating around and saying, "That looks interesting, what is that?" Never did I think I'd find something this unique and addictive. I honestly had no idea it was a BL anime until I started reading comments and looking into the history more. The show is done in a true anime style and doesn't souly focus around the BL which is something I'm ...
