Synopsis

Maaka Karin comes from a family of vampires living in Japan, but she is not a normal vampire. Vampires are normally supposed to drink the blood of their victims but Karin suffers from a condition that causes her body to produce excessive amounts of blood. About once a month, she has to get rid of the excess blood by giving it to her "victims." But she somehow manages to go to school like everyone else her age.

Well, things are about to get more complicated. When a new student, Usui Kenta transfers into Karin's class, she starts producing unusually huge amounts of blood, almost as if in reaction to him. Worse, he happens upon Karin's true nature...

To be honest I expected a lot from it and unfortunately the first 5 episodes didn’t really grab me. However, after episode 5 things got better and the plot became more definite.

Speaking of the plot… So it’s about Karin, a freak among vampires. She’s probably what you would refer to as an anti-vampire. She doesn’t suck blood as often as other vampires do, since she actually makes blood, she bathes in daylight with no problem whatsoever – The bottom line is that she can do what other vampires can’t. Basically, the fact that Karin’s not a normal vampire, is what the plot revolves on.

Karin is my favorite romantic comedy ever. I believe the reason for this is because I like vampire shows so this is a huge plus for me, there is also the fact that it had a real end unlike most romantic comedies. I love the characters in this show especially karin herself she is definitely unique. My biggest disclaimer to people about this show would be if you are looking for a show that is on the serious side this is not for you. so if you like things a little out of the norm then this may be a good fit for you. read more

Recommendations

Seeing how these animes are both contain vampire, the theme of the animes is to break down the wall between humans and vampires. Both animes also involves school life and daily activities. There is some comedy and love interest involved in both animes so if you like Karin, you will like Vampire Knight...
Both have Vampire female leads, and both female leads are not what they appear to be at first. They are also both rather humorous and set around schools. R+V is more of a harem compared with Karin being more about Karin's journey through her oddity and finding love and acceptance.
