Strike the Blood: Episode 2 Vampire Stalking

Lifesong’s Thoughts: Is it weird that I find this show interesting despite thinking it’s not very good? The pacing feels rushed and the character’s iterations are just not that interesting, but I find myself being drawn in anyway.

I like this dark fantasy setting where everything is just out in the open, it reminds me of Index in that sense. I also find myself liking this protagonist and his philosophy on power. He reminds of Vash even though his personality is not the same.

I wish this show would play up the crazy a bit more than it does. It feels like it’s Trigun meets Hellsing just under the surface, but so far that just hasn’t come out despite our run in with a crazy axe wielding priest.

I enjoyed this enough to stick around till the end of the first arc at least. I assume that will be episode three. Also, we have a chick kicking ass with a spear and it’s at least decently animated… I can’t pass that up can I?
