Storyline

In 2012, the world allegedly comes to an end at the hands of a human-made virus, ravaging the global populace and leaving only children untouched. It is at this time that vampires emerge from the recesses of the earth, likely followed by age-old horrors of the dark thought only to be myth. The vampires sweep the earth and claim it in a single violent stroke, subjugating the remnants of humanity and leading them beneath the surface to safety. This "protection" comes at the price of donating blood to their captors. At the age of twelve, Yuichiro and his friend and fellow orphan Mikaela plotted to escape along with the children in Hyakuya Orphanage. However, this resulted in their deaths and Mikaela sacrifices himself in order for Yuichiro to escape and be saved by members of the Moon Demon Company, an extermination unit of the Japanese Imperial Demon Army. Four years later, Yuichiro dedicates his life to destroy vampires and seek revenge against them for murdering his "family".

Shallow atrocity.
15 October 2019 | by sagir-khanSee all my reviews

Story and writing: Absolutely mediocre. The characters are the most smug and unlikeable I've ever seen. The protagonist constantly disobeys direct orders in the military and yet everybody tolerates him. The lead's needs take precedence over other human lives. The main characters are unbelievably arrogant and selfish with obnoxious dialogues.

The lead's possibly romantic relationship with his Foster brother is also the driving force of the entire show. It's disturbing, to say the least.

Animation: The animation isn't the worst but it's nothing to write home about. There are certainly better action anime out there.

Sound: The soundtrack and music is forgettable although the English dub voice actors did a decent job. I don't like subtitles, hence I can't comment on Japanese VA.

Conclusion: This anime has more mentions of "family" than Vin Diesel has uttered the words in his lifetime, I had to skip past some parts of one episodes because I just couldn't suffer through another mention of the word. I'm on the penultimate episode of season 2. I've already committed to watching this anime so I'll finish it but God I cannot sit through another season of this abomination of an anime!

I rate this 3/10 but only for the decent animation and character design. I would not recommend this to my worst enemy, simply because I don't want to be thought to be lacking of taste.
