Synopsis

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?!

The tags "Action, Ecchi, Fantasy, School, Shounen, Vampire, Supernatural" actually summarize the show pretty well, with the exception of "school" perhaps. If you want to watch a normal guy who stumbles upon ridiculous powers and then proceeds to save the world and get a lot of female attention; then here you go.

One of the things to appreciate here is that what you see is what you get. It's a straightforward anime you can get some escapism/ good sequences out of (be them of the girls or of the action). I also think that the first few episodes are quite representative of the series as read more

My expectations for Strike the Blood were simple: I wanted lots of action with some romance thrown in. Instead, I feel like I got the opposite. Overall, I was disappointed in some areas and pleasantly surprised in others. Though I don't regret watching it, I wish the show had only 12 episodes instead of 24.

Story: 6

To put it simply, the story for this show is mediocre. It isn't outstanding, but nor is it bad. It simply fulfills its duty to carry along the main premise of the show, which focuses more on the relationships between characters (primarily, of course, between the leading hero Koujo and read more

Recommendations

Same type of main character the type that becomes stronger by interacting with females
It wouldn't be surprising to see 'Strike the Blood' popped up in people's minds if they had previously seen 'Toaru Majutsu no Index'. In terms of superiority, 'Toaru Majutsu no Index' is the master while 'Strike the Blood' is the apprentice in a world filled with various supernatural beings. Both these series demonstrate that with teamwork and perseverance, battles can be won by either single-handedly overpowering your opponents or having support beside you in the most dire of situations.

'Toaru Majutsu no Index' draws upon different perceptions from various characters not to mention multiple main ones who could form a connection with the viewers with only a few encounters. There aren't a lot of your so-called typical harem and comedy which is one of the standouts of this series and that alone gives it a certain quality as to how 'Toaru Majutsu no Index' should be remembered. Adding to the clean and exciting quality battles throughout the series, this is the icing on the cake.

'Strike the Blood' focuses a lot of their appeal on the girls fanservice mixture and place their chips solely on a single male character powerhouse. The mild and short battles lacks appeal every now and then due to the fact that it is devoting a lot on the harem nature which is a make or break situation because in that one instant you will either like them or hate them, disliking fanservice is technically a killer right here.
