The story is fairly short, only OVA of 2 episodes so it won't be a long review. I prefer writing shorter reviews anyway, since I hate reading 13 pages long essays of some conceited person hairsplitting every single unimportant point.

I came across the anime like any other person does, that is, on teh inturwebs.
I was disappointed it was only an OVA of 2 episodes, not a real deal.

A good intro setting the mood and catching attention of viewer and what I always like seeing, a hint of forbidden romance, which especially makes it intriguing. The story doesn't end but the makers haven't produced more episodes.

I decided to give this series a shot because a few voice actors whose work I enjoy were involved. For the record; I haven't read the manga, or seen the original sub, nor am I a fan of ecchi. That said, I couldn't imagine recommending this series to anyone who is.

The story of Holy Knight is standard fare. An emotionally distant and duty-driven girl is compelled to sleep with an awkward, nervous boy, himself given a task he's not yet aware of.

This OVA tries to put a fresh spin on the old vampire anime type. It could have been great™ if it was expanded into a 13 ep series, however it seems it was mostly a marketing ploy to get more audience into the manga.

Story: 7
You will see your usual cliches: sole survivor of some ancient clan, Romeo-Juliette type of romance, the classic childhood friends who develops a romantic feeling twords the main char and a bit of love triangle, etc, etc.
That said, the story is well blended and there are hints about several possible interesting development angles, which (most likely) will be expanded read more

"This cursed fate of mine, is a stigma that can't be erased."

At first, I wasn't 100% sure keen on whether to check out this short OVA or not. After all, it is tagged ecchi on MAL and based off a manga. Of course, OVA adapted from manga can sometimes be a flop and goes straight to hell. Some examples (whether you agree or not) includes Hiyoki, Honey x Honey, and Kyou, Koi wo Hajimemasu. These popular manga that have the potential of becoming a hit series instead became disappointing OVAs that were not appealing. But is this the case for Holy Knight? Hmm, let's put read more
