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 say it's a great one filled with what i expected.. though a little too much blood for my taste is all.
To tell the truth, ova 1 only contains chapter 1 from volume 1 from the Vassalord manga which contains many more chapters and more than 4 volumes. So if you liked the ova, please do read the manga
Overall I give this ova a 8 because I love the story behind it, the art was great, and loved the voice actors tooread 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 justice.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 something new i would be unclear of what the main story is about.
The characters to me are pretty interesting. I feel that the two main characters have a good chemistry going on. haha. After completing the manga, i feel that they did a decent job of developing the characters just through 1 OVA.
I think that the art and sound did the best compared to the story and character. The way the characters were designed and the voices they had fit perfectly well together. Of course im not trying to say it was the best thing i have ever seen, but compared to my expectations, it was very well done.
Overall, i feel that watching this OVA is worth wasting 27 min of my life. It is visually pleasing, and you can really get engaged into the story if this kind of story is your thing. It even made me read the entire manga afterwards so... Therefore, i give this OVA an overall of 8 and hope that people that enjoy this genre should give a shot.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, and perhaps better addressed in the manga version.
Tl;dr If you're looking for a quick hit of gory, vampyric, shounen-ai action then this is not it. If you're looking for a teaser or a quick preview of what you can expect from the manga before you dive in, then PERHAPS this is the way to go.
