Fortune Arterial, an anime adaptation from an adult visual novel of the same name. Just because it's adapted from a visual novel, sparkled my interest already. Shows that were adapted from a VN tend to be good. But was it good? Continue reading and find out. Also, bear in mind that this is my first review. I'm not really good at writing big and long reviews but I tried my best. English isn't my native language so there might be some spelling mistakes. Also, feedback is welcome.

Story: (6/10)

Allright so the beginning is pretty much a standard for a lot of anime shows. High school teenager read more

Before I started watching this, I was expecting harem and nudity in this anime since it was based off its own Japanese adult visual novel game, but I was highly disappointed to see that there were none at all. Also, since I heard that there were vampires in this, I expected tons of action scenes with vampires fighting but there were little to none. For those who wonder what type of anime this is, Fortune Arterial: Akai Yakusoku is a school life, supernatural, romantic comedy type of anime.

Story: (7/10)

The story is pretty generic, a high school teenager transfers to a new school, off a remote read more

There are few trends in anime that are as fallible as the visual novel adaptation, yet they continue to be made in the hope of finding the next Air, Kanon or Clannad. Unfortunately this means that the industry is littered with forgettable titles that have no other purpose than to serve as no brain entertainment for an audience that simply doesn't care anymore.

There is hope though, as every so often a series will appear that defies all expectations. Sadly, Fortune Arterial: Akai Yakusoku (Red Promise) isn't one of them.

So i thought this anime was something you could sink your teeth into (No-pun intended) and watch for a week
Honestly it surprised me a bit.
I thoroughly enjoyed this show

So story wise i feel that the true plot never comes through until episode 8. The plot after episode 8 is rather good and i feel that it allows you to actually care for the characters. Now is it anything amazing? Not really. I just really enjoy this plot. Now before episode 8 it is honestly a stereotypical slice of life anime. So really the plot after episode 8 does pick up the show a bit. I read more

Anime: Karin
Both series are about a type of vampire and this girl has a strange feeling when she first met the transfer student..So these series have much in common at the beginning. Both series have the same atmosphere.

Anime: Sola
Calamity of Night [Sola] and Vampire [Fortune Arterial] are both immortals and have supernatural powers. They will meet a human, and then the story starts...

While watching, you will see both anime have the same feel to it, mostly when it comes to the ending. Sola, I feel, has more action while Fortune focus much more on Drama.

Anime: Vampire Knight Guilty
Both series contain the vampire theme as well as romance, drama, and mystery. There's less action in Fortune Arterial but the romance theme is present. Both series also takes place at a school setting.
