Premise: A teenage girl ends up living with 6 sadistic vampire brothers.
Gee’s Verdict: A miserable little pile
This anime is a fine representative of the worst aspects of Shoujo and the Otome game genre. Every moment of this show filled me with discomfort and disgust. Considering it’s a VN adaptation, you’d think the whole point was that the girl would be surrounded by hot attractive men, not verbally and physically abusive individuals who have basically kidnapped and imprisoned a girl in their own home. Some kind of twisted Stockholm Syndrome shit is literally the only way I could see this going anywhere, and if you think that’s a positive outcome, you seriously need to get help. The Twilight comparisons are completely apt, as both pieces of media happen to star pretty vampires who perform increasingly questionable acts while their vapid female self-insert protagonists somehow finds themselves falling in love with their abusers.
I’m going to be completely honest. If you legitimately enjoy this for the content and not for the sake of laughing at its terribleness, there might be something wrong with you. With all the accusations of misogyny flying around in modern media these days, the fact that something like this is aimed at a primarily female fanbase isn’t doing any favors. I can only hope most people are smart enough to stay as far away from this as they possibly can.
Marlin’s Verdict: I feel dirty.
This is not a show for decent people. To be honest, this shouldn’t be a show for any people, and yet it exists. This is based on a VN, which ostensibly means the player is meant to be attracted to these characters, and yet in the first episode all but one or two of them are implicit in some kind of verbal or sexual assault against the lead. How this plot could continue on in any fashion that wouldn’t imply this main character is being forced against her will to love these characters beyond me. I mean, jeez, this is actually meant to be marketed towards women? How this has come to be is absolutely baffling.
Zigg’s Verdict: All that’s wrong
When you’re spending every second watching a show worrying that it’ll turn into a gang rape scene, that’s generally not a good sign. If that’s your thing, then seek help. Everyone else should probably stay the fuck away from this show.
