Synopsis


Komori Yui is a positive-thinking girl who nevertheless is troubled by seeing spirits and experiencing poltergeist phenomena. In her second year in high school, she transfers to a new school—a night school for entertainers and celebrities—due to her father's work. There are rumours that vampires exist among the student body, and Yui ends up living with the six sadistic Sakamaki vampire brothers.

Impressions

Only 15 minutes huh?

Somewhat what I expected. Whoa, one of the dudes goes right after her just like that. That rosario like symbol reminds me of Rosario + Vampire. A lot of dudes vampires and one girl...this is going to be weird.

While this definitely won't be everyone's cup of tea, it will be interesting to see how the anime portrays the abuse Yui goes through.

The episode length makes me wonder if only glimpses of character interactions will be shown, perhaps as a way to water down just how screwed in the head the guys really are.

Edit: CR already has the streaming rights? Damn, that was quick.

I'm not that into the vampire romance shows and rarely watch them, but the art in this one looks amazing and the characters seem interesting enough after watching the PV. Plus, one of the guys is voiced by Daisuke Hirakawa who voiced Rei Ryugazaki from Free!, so there's no way I'm going to pass up that :D

Very much looking forward to watching episode 1 today

You know, I usually will watch most anything, but that description on the show page is really turning me off.

But then I'll never have enough time to do the things I need to do. I don't really want to watch much more than 20 anime at a time, but that's how it's shaping up. It'll suck the work ethic out of me lol. I've gotta keep my scholarship, too >_>

I watched the first episode and could not stand any of the characters. I try to give any anime 3 episodes. This one, I will give one more. So far it has been nothing but some sicko's gang rape fantasy.

If I'm able to watch everything I want to watch next season, it would be at least 26 shows, so I'm pretty close lol, but ideally I can cut it down to 20 and be happy.

Diabolik Lovers does seem interesting. I haven't seen a smutty shoujo anime yet, so it does get some bonus points in terms of watching priority, but I'm waiting on what others think still.

I'm liking the animation more than I thought I would, plus Laito and Kanato are as creepy as ever. I do feel that 15 minutes is not enough for a series with a complex, route-driven backstory, however.

So, for my opinion on Episode 1:

+Clean animation, character detailing is nice as well.
+Original CVs from the games are present.
+The guys' brutal, competitive natures as vampires are shown quickly.
+Nicknames for Yui are kept.
+Yui now has a CV, something she lacks in the games.

-15 minute episodes lend to a rushed feeling.
-Only brief glimpses of personalities are shown.
-The ending probably didn't sit well with most viewers.

Reviews so far are what I expected to see. Not everyone likes it, but it's BDSM. Not everyone can stomach that.

I'm really in your place at the moment. I mostly want to watch it for the sake of seeing something different though, if only to give my commentary on it (Someone in the reviews is describing it as only being good for people into "gang molestation fantasies", whilst another recommends it to those who like "ecchi shows" so I'm honstely doubtful it's for me). Any premium users have a coherent summary of the first episode?
