Synopsis

Yui Komori used to see dead people. But as troubling as past glimpses of spirits, poltergeists, and psychic phenomena may have been, they pale into insignificance compared to what she's about to discover once she's forced to transfer to a new school. Because it turns out that her own history is very different from what she thought it was, and she has a very different kind of family waiting for her.

Now she'll be sharing her living space with six very attractive young men, though not a single one is human. And while her new dorm mates may be brothers, and their attraction to her involves her bloodline, "brotherly" is the last word to describe their intentions. In moving from her father's church to becoming the object of six blood lusting young vampires' affections, Yui will undergo the most shocking, soul ripping and draining experience any teenage girl could imagine in her wildest fantasies... or most salacious nightmares.

I just marathoned this abomination (which wasn't too difficult considering each episode is under 14 min) and first of all, men: if you hate women and like to see them abused you will love this show, ladies: if you are masochists you will also love this show. If these descriptions do not fit you, you will just be vomiting your brain cells out the entire time.
From reading the summary, you would (obviously) think this story would evolve to the brilliant anime equivalent of the Mona Lisa or the Sistine Chapel but no. Let's go through this using the provided elements.

This series....or rather this abomination is what I would call a trainwreck that never had itself on rail. Visual novels aren’t easy to adapt. In fact, recent years has shown that many anime series never lives up to its original material that result in disappointed fans. However, there are also some VN adaptations that are so horrid, so atrocious, so dreadful, so disastrous, so unappealing that it can be in a category of its own. Diabolik Lovers belongs to the category for failure with all its rights. This show is something of a tragedy - an anime adaptation that is almost an insult to the read more

(It says I only watched 1/12 episodes but I finished most of it, couldn't force myself to watch last few though; so I'd say this review holds valid.)
Anyway,
I'm not going to lie, I watched this because I love reverse harems, and I *ehem* adore nicely drawn male characters. But this?! This is an insult to all my brain cells.

The plot isn't even worth mentioning because there isn't any. This anime is so pointless and consists of the female walking around getting her blood drained like 5 million times. How is she not dead? This anime is rate r because there are a lot of read more

I was going to do a first impressions review of this show, but I've decided to play a different tune for this one. What seemed to be a harmless vampire romance at first glance, turned into something much more sinister that left my stomach turning.

The show follows Yui who ends up in a house full of vampires as she was directed to by her father. But now that she had fallen down the rabbit hole there is absolutely no escape for her. All the vampire brothers there keep her as their sadistic prisoner, each taking turns at torturing her. It's not surprising for vampires to read more

Recommendations

Anime: Amnesia
The sole female main character, utterly confused and scared about what's happening around her, and a bunch of hot guys with each after her in different ways and in different exciting situations. :> Lovely and enjoyable.

Anime: Vampire Knight
Both have the same romance, horror, reverse harem, vampire and the same setting where it is set in a school excursively for vampires, dissimilarities are that the female protagonist in one anime is not alone when dealing with vampires, while the female protagonist is all by herself and has to fend off them vampires.  
reportRecommended by Nasty001
Anime: Brothers Conflict
Watch out: both of these series are absolute guilty pleasures. The main character is forced to live with several brothers she has never seen before. As always with (reverse) harems, all the boys want to be with her.  
reportRecommended by johnisnothisdate
Anime: Dance with Devils
Both have bishounen vampires (demons too in DwD) trying to catch a silly girl
Both are based on a game
Both group of boys treat the girl as a ''prey'' or ''pawn'', anyway, like an object for their benefit
Both have inverse harem and fanservice
Both have a head of the group, and they seem to be in love with the girl despite their plans and nature
Both have chapters devoted to each character to have romantic scenes with her
Both have dark aura, in a shoujo concept 
reportRecommended by PsychoBomb
Anime: Kamigami no Asobi
Similarities:

Both have the same reverse harem.

Both female characters have the first name Yui.

Both same female characters found themselves having to deal with rowdy boys.

Dissimilarities:

One has a full 25 mins duration while the other was only limited to 12 mins.

One was more of a horror genre, while the other has a slice of life.

Anime: Ouran Koukou Host Club
When I watched, immediately comes to my mind Ouran Koukou Host Club image. First the "Prince", then the "Intellectual", after that the "Big guy" and finally the "Childish" one with a "teddy bear" in his hands. What's the difference? This is not a club, they are vampires. Maybe I forget the twins... but well, until now is the same.
