Servamp: The Vampires of Sin

Are you enjoying this lovely spring weather like I am? I hope so.

Today’s anime that I’ll be talking about is Servamp that is a manga and an anime show by Strike Tanaka. I happened to come across this one by chance and I thought it looked interesting enough to take a look at. I will say that I only watched the show, but not the manga so this is going to be based on that.

Wattpad.com
Kuro’s Cat Form

It’s a teen boy named,”Mahiru”, who likes simple things but hates troublesome things. Already his personality traits are heading for a world of disaster. Anyway, one day he finds a black cat and decides to take it home to keep as a pet and names it, “Kuro”. But, the very next day when he returns from school, he finds a guy there instead of his cat; watching tv and eating all his food. Turns out that the cat he took in was actually a vampire and the reason why he was knocked out when he found him was because he was super weak to the sun.

In this show, instead of vampires burning or glittering in the sunlight they turn into small, cute animals. Kuro’s being an adorable black cat. Long story short Kuro and Mahiru end up making a contract with each other. Soon after another servamp comes out the woodwork that calls himself ,”Tsubaki”, the vampire of Melancholy.

AmiAmi.comKuro is one of the seven vampires of sin. He being the servamp of Sloth for obvious reasons and his other siblings representing the other six sins. Apparently, none of the other vampires knew about Tsubaki’s existence of being the 8th vampire of the sin, Melancholy. Tired of hiding and not being acknowledged by his older siblings, he decides to start a war against the other vampires.

Kuro and Hyde end up being my favorite characters in this show which i find ironic since they HATE each other with a bloody passion. Kuro keeps making me laugh with how lazy he is, he’ll actually avoid fighting because he feels sore or isn’t into it at all. Hyde is the opposite he always seem to be up for a fight at all times and doesn’t care about anyone but himself. He seems to have a bad and ultimately fatal habit of killing his eves when he gets bored with them.

Wattpad.comAnyway, I was kind of disappointed with the fact that only 3 out of the 7 sin vampires (not including Tsubaki) showed up in the show. If it wasn’t for the flashback, you’ve never have known what the other looks like. The beginning of the show made it seem like it was going to be that all seven band together for the greater good of all vampire kind and fight against Tsubaki all at once, but that didn’t happen. So, you could say I was a little miffed about that.

Hopefully, those details are in the manga for your enjoyment. But, this is a very good anime to watch and pass the time with. I hope you enjoy the crazy characters and funny moments that are in this show. See you next time!

Mitsu Aji Blood

This manga is by Mitsuki, Miko and is also known as Honey Blood. It revolves around a girl named Hinata who one day notices that we have a new next door neighbor named Junya. Junya is handsome, mysterious, a famous writer and…….a vampire!

I kind of get confused on what the people know in this story about beings of the supernatural because in the beginning when people were being killed in a very vampire-like fashion, they thought it was vampires. But, one of Hinata’s friends keeps saying that vampires do not exist. I’m sure her friend isn’t the only one who thinks that. So, it raises the question, do the people in this story know about vampires or not?

Also, when these murders started to take place is the same time that her new neighbor, Junya moved in. So, of course, she was instantly suspicious of him. I also think she was getting curious about him because she was attracted to him. He has a beautiful female editor who comes to see him all the time and at first it looks like they are ‘sleeping together’ all the time. Looks can be deceiving though.

Eventually, Hinata and Junya become a couple (like we didn’t see this coming) and the story continues. I could already tell that the editor didn’t approve of their relationship because she was jealous. I think Hinata should take her jealousy as a total self-esteem boost because the handsome vampire didn’t want the hot and curvy editor, he wanted Hinata. She’s not sexy, I would say that she’s cute or adorable.

Also, Hinata has acquired one of the laziest or most laid-back boyfriend in the world. Other than working on his new book, he eats (drinks her blood), sleeps, teases her or goes out for a midnight stroll. Whenever, Hinata tries to get him to do things that she wants to do, she has to literally drag him out the house in order for him to do it.

Note: I don’t sunlight can kill him, but it does make him extremely weak.

As the story, goes on you’ll find out that more and more about Junya’s past and how it’ll affect Hinata’s future. You’ll have to read this manga to find out. But, I think that their realationship is totally hilarious and adorable.

Once Bitten Twice Shy (Jaz Parks Series)

The first book to the Jaz Parks series is called “Once Bitten, Twice Shy” by Jennifer Rardin, who is unfortunately deceased and will be missed.

The first book mostly centers around a woman named Jaz Parks who works for a company that tracks down and kills evil supernaturals. In this story, supernaturals finally came out of the dark and have taken their place in society. Also, because of this the government has placed several laws for the supernaturals to follow because if they don’t they’ll send Jaz Parks to come find and kill you.

She’s known for being one of the best assassins that they have, but also one of the most reckless. Her boss, Pete, is a serious penny pincher so when he has to keep paying for all of the bills for repairs that she keeps breaking like expensive cars, hospital bills, state of the art weaponry, he gets her a partner.

That partner is Vayl. A sexy and powerful century old vampire who has the power to control ice. Theirs  a lot of mystery around him that comes with all vampires. Vayl wanted to become Jaz’s partner for some reason which he is yet to reveal to her. I could already tell that he was in love with her and was falling harder to more they were together. But, what good would any love story be without a love rival.

That’s when the sweet jokester named Cole Bemont comes in. He’s what every girl dreams of dating, which ends up driving Vayl up the wall. This was so jealous of Cole that the moment they saw each other, they kept sizing each other up. Since, Vayl doesn’t show much emotion except maybe anger or disapproval the only way someone knows how he’s feeling is by the temperature in the room. Since, he has the power to control ice when he’s really mad about something, he’ll make the room drop a couple of degrees.

Jaz and Vayl are like fire and ice. They are complete opposites but work really well together. So, far they have encountered vampires, demons and seers. I look forward to reading the second book to see what will happen to this ass kicking duo.

Tokyo Ghoul

Source: http://www.kyou-konnen.blogspot.com

I’ve been hearing a lot about this new anime show named Tokyo Ghoul. Before I even watched the show I decided to watch a quick trailer, so I could feel the show out a little. What I saw in the short clip shocked and amazed me and I knew I had to see more. Unfortunately, since this show is brand new it only has up to three episodes so far. But, their awesomeness makes up for their lack of episodes.

Tokyo Ghoul is centered in a modern world where creatures called “Ghouls” exist. When I say ghouls I do not mean the mindless zombies that are controlled by vampires like in Hellsing or in any other vampire story. These ghouls have intelligence, powers and social lives. The Ghouls in this anime eat human flesh to survive, they can’t eat normal human food because it tastes awful to them. One even said that its like eating horse crap. But, some of them have learned to ‘fake’ eating normal food in front of humans. I kind of felt bad they had to keep pretending to like it the food to survive, you’ll see the main character ,Kaneki, throw up a lot from just eating a single bite.

Warning: Spoilers Ahead!

Speaking of Kaneki, he is our main character in this show. Now from what I can tell ghouls aren’t created, they are born like everything else in the world. I say this because Kaneki is human, but after going on a date that turned into an attempted murder by the girl of his dreams, Rize, who is a feared ghoul among her kind and tried to eat him. Things don’t according to plan and Rize ends up dying. Now things get strange when Kaneki wakes up to find himself a ghoul himself or more like a half-ghoul. Apparently, Kaneki was so badly injured during the attack they transferred some of Rize’s body parts to him which caused some unusual effects.

Now, he must learn to hide the fact that he’s a ghoul from the humans and from his best friend, Hide, while quickly learning and fitting into ghoul society. This is a very good anime even with its lack of episodes. Also, like most anime shows it was a manga before becoming and anime. The manga is called, “Toukyou Kushu” and what I realized when I first started reading it was that the art in the manga and the art in the anime was completely different to such a degree that it shocked me. The effect I got from watching it was much more powerful than reading it for me. So, I think I’ll just for more episodes to come out and see what happens next.

Rosario Vampire Season 1

 

(Characters: Kurono, Ruby, Moka, Mizore and Yukari)

Rosario Vampire is an anime that I think anyone can get into. It’s about a normal human boy named Tsukune who becomes so desperate to pass any schools’ entrance exams that he ends up taking and passing the exam to attend Yokai Academy. Little did he know that he was now going to attend a school for monsters.

For obvious reasons your probably thinking,” Well, why doesn’t he just leave?” The creators of this anime thought about this, too. According to the story, humans can’t even get into the monster world which is where you have to go to even get to the school because its protected by a barrier. This makes you wonder how he is able to even get in there. They also say that if they ever catch a human in the their world then he is to be executed on the spot. Poor Tsukune.

If things weren’t bad enough for him the bus that brought him there only comes once a month. After, his initial freak out moment a silver lining appears and its name is Moka. She’s cute, perky and a vampire! The moment they met she sucked his blood and became hooked, now their the best of friends much to the guys of Yokai Academy’s dismay. She unknowingly became the one of the most beautiful and popular girls in the school and every guy in school becomes totally jealous of Tsukune. In turn gets him in a lot of fights of the school.

During his first with the ogre I thought he was going to die, but I wiped that thought from my mind because their was no way that they would kill the main character in the first episode. During the first episode, Moka’s bad ass personality is revealed. When the rosary that she always wears comes off, her hair turns silver and her entire personality changes into a kick butt vampire.

Later, in the story Tsukune not only builds a reputation among his fellow classmates but also builds himself a bit of a harem of beautiful and powerful girls. Later, we have Kurono, who is a succubus who originally planned to steal away Moka’s popularity, so she can turn all of the guys into her love slaves. But, she ends up falling in love with Tsukune and tries whatever she can to get him to fall for her. Then there is Yukari, who is a genius witch who loves to play tricks on people. The stalker want to be girlfriend,Mizore, is a ice monster that has also fallen for Tsukune and follows him everywhere. Later, in the season another witch named Ruby who I like to think is kind of like Yukari’s big sister in a way since their witches and all.

Last but not least, we have Gin, the Werewolf. He is the only other guy in the group and I think his monster form is totally awesome. Too bad, he’s such a pervert. He’ll do anything to look up a girl’s skirt and he also likes to take photos of girls undressing in the locker rooms. Everyone knows he does it, but he’s so fast and sneaky that he never gets caught.

This anime is filled with romance, monsters, mystery and plenty of monster fighting and I enjoyed every minute of it. I’m hoping that the second season is just as good as the first one.

Diabolik Lovers

Two things seemed to catch my attention before I watched this show. The handsome guys and the darkly themed opening song. The opening practically tells the whole story without revealing the whole story. If that makes any sense.

I felt like I was watching one of those old vampire movies. Only its been modernized and turned into an anime with not one, but six handsome vampires. You know how they used to do vampire movies with the overly dramatic and pretty blonde girl, who says she’s trapped with the monster. That ain’t true with this story, she had many ways of getting out of her situation, but she kept making excuses and said that she wanted to stay so she can “find out the truth”. I thought that was bullshit, we all know she wanted to stay with these men and I don’t blame her.

We all know that, whenever, vampires are involved theirs always a romantic element added in. In this one, you don’t really feel it until it gets to the end. Unless, you find each oy fighting over her for her blood romantic. If I said I had a favorite among them I would have to go with Ayato the cocky red-head vampire that calls himself “Yours Truly”. Since, the beginning of the story I kept wondering why he kept calling himself that and you’ll learn that later in the story. I will give you a hint though.

His mother is a bitch.

Speaking of mothers, all these boys are brothers. They just have different moms. You wouldn’t be able to guess that unless they told you because they all look so different. The only similar thing about them was all of them being vampires and that they all shared the same dad, who from the sound of it is a totally bastard.

Back to the boys, my least favorite would have to be Kanato. That boy is extremely creepy and not in a good or funny way either. Like you better call the cops if he so much as looks at you because you might end up missing later. I feared for Yui’s life when he was around her, but I think she likes to be abused because she keeps coming back.

I don’t know what to make of the ending of this show. What was the awakening exactly? Did she turn into a vampire herself at the end? None of these questions were answered and I was a little mad about it. I would like for them to show what happened after that or give us and episode of how her life is now with the boys.
