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

This anime is a lot of fun.
It delivers a gothic atmosphere while remaining kid friendly. Anyone can enjoy this anime, as it runs on pure cuteness. Nyanpire pulls off feel good, relaxing entertainment wonderfully.
If you're looking for a chill anime to watch for Halloween, this would be a very good choice.
Note that if you are looking for a intellectually challenging or "adult" anime, this is not for you.
This is just a cute silly show.
Great for fans of things mixing cute and dark, and cat lovers.
It's a very short show, so even if you don't enjoy it, not much of your life is wasted.
All that's read more
