I love how all these otome games are getting animated lately, but the synopsis sounds terribly generic. Oh well, the manga seems to run in LaLa, so time to check it out.

This sounds too much like otome clichés even for me. Haven't had good experiences with vampires in shows or movies with a female target audience.

I'd probably check it out as an OVA, but a TV series might be too much.

This sounds like a reverse fortune arterial. That's reason enough to avoid this.

Listening to the voice samples... I want to smack them all with a frying pan. Arrogant jerks... and the kid is creepy. :/

Sigh. Again I'm tempted to start watching because of character design, but after Amnesia as well as all the other otome crap I've watched recently, I will be disappointed. Plus I absolutely hate vampire stories. (Especially when it involves female + romance)

Too bad. Won't be watching. :/

Guess you need some shoujo, would have been better if they start adapting more popular shoujos, instead of adapting otome games that'll most likely end up selling poorly and we all seen enough examples. not that i mind though lol

srsly, more shoujo pls.

Yeah, not like we have enough shitty vampire fanfic-tier stories in the West already. I doubt this is going to sell decently, but well, good luck anyway.

lolwut, the heroines in most otome games are just your average normal girl, few exceptions have supernatural stuff going for them.

i get the feeling that they're trying to pull an UtaPri, which isn't going to happen, UtaPri (and Hakuoki) are top selling otome games, and one of the few, along with Tokimeki, the rest sells below average-average, can't see how they expect it to sell decently, but as you said, good luck to them.

Lol Yeah, i heard the dudes are all sadists, usually it's one or two guys in an otome game that are sadistic, but this game is full of sadism, this could use some little sparkly flower shoujo feel man.

Exactly -- just like how most MC's in harems are just your average normal boy, because wish fulfillment. (Though girl wish fulfillment annoys me a lot more then boy, I dunno why.)

Yup, Average person surrounded by attractive people of the opposite gender is easier for people to identify with, like "i'm just a normal guy/girl so why am i getting so much attention", you know, something like that lol

Well, nothing that graphic is going on as the game was made for the PSP, and it's R-15, just your typical hot dominant/sadistic guy fulfilling some fantasies.

just saying incase someone gets the wrong idea and goes all "omg dis porn".

I'm willing to bet that this is gonna be an OVA. I mean, come on. After how Arcana and Hiiro sold, and judging by how AMNESIA's gonna sell...seriously?(But all three anime are almost crap imo so I'm not surprised by the sAles)

But then again, the recent OVA of an otome anime called 'Hanayaka Ichizoku bla bla' sold very poorly too so why would they make another OVA?
Unless...are these anime adaptations actually boosting the sales of the otome games?
So many questions...but, I'm 100% sure this will be an OVA. Unless, like Downgrade said, they want to go bankrupt.

Well, TV or OVA, all I'm gonna say is, Otomate and whatever studio is gonna animate this, please don't turn this game into a crappy anime.

Oh and as for the people expecting a strong heroine, you ain't getting one. =P Sorry.

as i mentioned earlier in one of my posts, it seems to me that they're trying to pull off an UtaPri sales, which is possible but not easy, I'll explain why, UtaPrince was already a huge success in the otome industry, it's one of the top selling otome games, so it wouldn't surprise anyone if it sold high, which it did. But after that, most otome games seem to be selling average, and they're adapting said average titles, but you can't expect them to sell because they weren't that successful. as for the boost, i'm not sure, if there is any boost at all then it's likely a small 1 or 2k at the most.

But like i said, pulling off an UtaPri is possible, but not easy, as it requires the game to be already popular and widely known with the audience.

There are strong heroines in Otome games, as in independent and have some kind of powers, but it's just easier for the audience to identify with average heroes/heroines, which is why most otome heroines are just your typical normal MC.

The synopsis seems somewhat interesting, but does it really have to be that many guys? I'm probably gonna watch, but I'm not gonna be expecting much.

P.S. The designs are pretty sick (in a good way).

I'm not sure about the sales figures but the game itself is pretty popular along with the drama CD's (they're even going to introduce new characters with well known seiyuus). I doubt it's taking the same path as UtaPri, both are quite different considering the fact that Diabolik Lovers is R18.. and er the whole supernatural-vampire thing is just an excuse for 'action' to happen.

Not really, Diabolik lovers is R-15, there is no R-18 games on the psp, or any console for that matter.

R-15, not too smutty, but not too soft.

erm say that after you listen to the drama CD..
in both cases, my point is Diabolik Lovers and UtaPri are not similar.

I'm talking about the actual game, on the PSP, not the drama CD, they're completely different.
my point was that, in an attempt to enlighten those who wonder why they keep animating otome games, it's that they're hoping for some sales like UtaPri, but it's not gonna be easy because Diabolik lover was slightly above average in sales while UtaPri is among the 3 Top sellers.
