The Fourth Progenitor—that's the world's strongest vampire that should only exist in legends. Accompanied by twelve Kenjuu and spreading calamity, this phantom vampire appeared in Japan. For the observation and obliteration of this Fourth Primogenitor, the government and Lion King decided to dispatch an attack mage known as a Sword Shaman. However, for some reason, the one chosen for the observation was a apprentice Sword Shaman girl, Himegari Yukina. Wielding the strongest anti-primogenitor spirit spear, Yukina arrived at Demon District, Itogami City. What is the true identity of the Fourth Primogenitor, Akatsuki Kojou, she encountered over there?!

With all the anime spewing out, there are inevitably some that fail, and some that succeed. Then there are those that neither rises above the sea of mediocrity, nor falls to the pits of inferiority. They simply turn out to be what one would expect it to be: generic. Don’t get me wrong. Every anime has the potential to separate itself from the band of generic mediocrity. Strike the blood is no exception. However, that light at the end of the tunnel is blocked by an onslaught of fanservice, feeble characterisation and mundane storytelling.

Initially interesting, the story gradually adopts the generic high school setting, with read more

Yet another overpowering, blood-sucking vampire round 'bout.

The anime industry has a tendency to keep on using some factors over and over again. Mainly that would be because the biggest part of the community never gives up on them and enjoys their aspects to the fullest, or so it would seem. When it comes to the matter of the supernatural genre, such a ran over topic, also known as a mainstream factor, are the vampires. They are presented as something majestic, overpowering, invincible, immortal, and controlling.

Same type of main character the type that becomes stronger by interacting with females
-annoying girl bothers the MC constantly and berates him when he's in contact with other girls
-futuristic fantasy setting
-every other girl is more interesting the MC girl
-magic and technology meet
-MC has lots of bad luck(?)
-visually they looked the same or are very similar
-if all else fails, wait for the MC to get "personally" angry
