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

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

Well well well how did I guess I was going to enjoy all 12 episodes of this cute and heartwarming show? Because it's all about the pretty kitties hehe. Alright I'll stop!

The art is really cute. Gives out that dark & gothic atmosphere but in a kid friendly way. The character design reminds me of Gamercat (especially Nyanpire). It's definitely kawaii as hell! Nyaaaaaaaaa!
I was not expecting the anime to have live action singing and dancing at the end of each episode. Pretty awesome! The song is catchy and worth nodding your head to.

If you love cats, then you'll definitely enjoy Nyanpire. It's absolutely 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
