To start off, I must admit that it's sort of intimidating writing a review for such a masterpiece. However, I will try my best to convey to you all as to why this show is truly a masterpiece that transcends the medium as a whole.

GONZO is finally back in full force after a 2 year break. Now what do they have to show for after these 2 long years? That would be Nyanpire. During these past few years, anime has been filled with pointless moe, excessive fanservice, and are completely lacking of any substance. Because of this, Nyanpire is a bright light of hope for read more

This will be my first review, so I hope I do this well.

Nyanpire, as far as I know, is a brand of toys made by the same people who made Hello Kitty and My Melody. Now it has become an anime. Nyanpire the Animation is a story which does not have much of a storyline, but it does execute it very well.

Story: 10
Nyanpire is about a kitten that almost died, but was saved by a vampire, who turned that kitten into a vampire. That's it. I'm sure a few will complain about the small storyline, but then why do many of us love Lucky Star? read more

In all seriousness, this series is an absolute throw-away.

To its credit, it makes no pretension about being anything other than a mindless cute-bomb. Going into this series expecting differently is begging for disappointment. While I'm not a fan of this genre, I did last through several episodes of Chi's Sweet Home, and figured this would be similar, but with fangs.

The sound and character designs in Nyanpire have an edgier (loosely speaking) and more polished aesthetic than in Chi, and are generally successful. The characters themselves, however, talk too much. Nonverbalness is associated with babyhood and helplessness, both traits that enhance the perception of cuteness. read more

I have to admit, I started Nyanpire with pretty low expectations. My friend's recommendation had been a less-than-glowing "we just watched Nyanpire; it was really freakin' weird!" Going solely off of that vague statement and the rather silly title (I mean really, Nyanpire?), I started watching it without high hopes. Fortunately, I can say quite confidently that my initial impressions turned out to be wrong.

That's not to say that Nyanpire isn't exactly what it sounds like: a silly collection of short episodes about a cat vampire and his friends. It's exactly that - nothing more, nothing less. But Nyanpire takes this ridiculous concept and does read more
