Well I have to say that I really wanted to watch this anime after reading the manga volumes over and over again... I love the story behind it and the ova was following volume 1 perfectly. But there is a but in all this.

For a reader like me who had already read all the chapters it's easy to know and understand EVERYTHING that happens, but I'm not sure if a person that haven't read anything would understand certain things here.

Therefore as a reader it's hard for me to know how a person without the background history would look at this great ova. I'd read more

Watched it for the sake of the shounen ai but found there was almost nothing about it, on the other hand the art, visual language and animation of the episode were jaw dropping! This weird 30 minutes of an episode is a trippy action packed dramatic almost nonsensical hard to understand journey that does little in trying to explain itself. Sometimes it bores, other times it grips you hard to the screen. I'd recommend trying to watch the first scene and to chose from that if it interests you to complete the viewing, the fan-service driven promotional poster certainly doesn't do that piece of enigma read more

This is my first ever review so bear with me. :)
Firstly, i really enjoyed this OVA. When i first watched it, i had absolutely no idea what it was about and only went in due to the shounen ai/yaoi factor. However, once i got the gist of what the story is about i found that i loved it. It has a pretty good plot going on. Though if like me you went in without any idea of the actual story you will find yourself completely confuse. Being confuse isnt such a bad thing to me tbh, because most of the time whenever i watch/read read more

Well that was ~25 minutes of pure confusion. I felt no emotion attachment, the story was rushed, the characters weak, and the plot devices were interesting but underdeveloped.

I'm a person who has never seen the manga, so I can only review from the anime alone, and it doesn't carry itself well at all. I found myself thinking that it would be interesting in a short anime series where more character development and exposition can take place.

That being said, the art and music is interesting and the characters had an intriguing enough premise that I was annoyed when the plot didn't deliver. It's promising, read more

Both are bloody and gory anime created from shounen-ai/yaoi sources. TNC is a full-length series, though, while Vassalord is just an OVA.
Both are shounen ai animes but unlike Junjou Romantica witch is romantic and sweet, Vassalord is more gritty and dark revolving around the two main characters who happen to both be vampires.
