What is it about?

Kojou Akatsuki’s days as an ordinary high school student in the Demon District of Itogami Island come to an abrupt end after a fateful encounter leaves him with the remarkable abilities of a vampire.

It isn’t long before he is thrust into the center of attention when it is discovered that he is the fourth primogenitor, an immensely powerful vampire whom most consider to be merely a legend. Fearing Kojou’s destructive potential, the Lion King Organization sends in an apprentice sword-shaman, Yukina Himeragi, to monitor, and should he become a threat, kill the boy deemed the world’s most powerful vampire. Forced together by circumstance, the two form an unlikely alliance as Kojou comes to terms with his abilities and they both struggle to protect the city from various emerging chaotic forces.

What did I think?

I don’t know what it is about a vampire sucking blood, but most of the time it ends up being very… hot! And did this anime nailed it. Off course the fact that they made the bloodsucking parts so awesome isn’t the only reason I liked this anime. I loved that it was the perfect balance of suspense and ecchi humor. I loved that the one moment you were looking at a severed head and the next moment there was a discussion over whether or not the main character saw some girl’s panties.

And guys, did I love the main character. He is literally the most powerful vampire in the world, yet he looks absolutely terrified when a middle school girl gets angry at him. I love that kinds of anime, where ecchi is a big part, but it doesn’t get in the way of the actual plot.

BTW the story was very good, I just noticed how I didn’t really talked about that yet. It has a quick pace, always ends in a way that makes you automatically click to the next episode. Which leaves you completely sleep deprived, but enormously happy by the time you finished it.
