Synopsis

At the behest of her father, Yui Komori goes to live in a secluded mansion, home to the six Sakamaki brothers—Shuu, Reiji, Ayato, Kanato, Laito, and Subaru—a family of vampires. Though at first the siblings are confused as to why the girl has arrived, they soon realize that she is to be their new "sacrificial bride," not to mention their other, more carnal intentions for her. After meeting the brothers, Yui quickly begins to question why her father would have sent her here and why she feels a strange, new pain in her chest. With each brother more sadistic than the last, Yui's life as a captive takes a harrowing turn in her new home. As her days turn into endless nights, and each brother vows to make her his own, Yui falls deeper and deeper into madness and ecstasy.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

I just marathoned this abomination (which wasn't too difficult considering each episode is under 14 min) and first of all, men: if you hate women and like to see them abused you will love this show, ladies: if you are masochists you will also love this show. If these descriptions do not fit you, you will just be vomiting your brain cells out the entire time.
From reading the summary, you would (obviously) think this story would evolve to the brilliant anime equivalent of the Mona Lisa or the Sistine Chapel but no. Let's go through this using the provided elements.

(It says I only watched 1/12 episodes but I finished most of it, couldn't force myself to watch last few though; so I'd say this review holds valid.)
Anyway,
I'm not going to lie, I watched this because I love reverse harems, and I *ehem* adore nicely drawn male characters. But this?! This is an insult to all my brain cells.

The plot isn't even worth mentioning because there isn't any. This anime is so pointless and consists of the female walking around getting her blood drained like 5 million times. How is she not dead? This anime is rate r because there are a lot of read more

This series....or rather this abomination is what I would call a trainwreck that never had itself on rail. Visual novels aren’t easy to adapt. In fact, recent years has shown that many anime series never lives up to its original material that result in disappointed fans. However, there are also some VN adaptations that are so horrid, so atrocious, so dreadful, so disastrous, so unappealing that it can be in a category of its own. Diabolik Lovers belongs to the category for failure with all its rights. This show is something of a tragedy - an anime adaptation that is almost an insult to the read more

I was going to do a first impressions review of this show, but I've decided to play a different tune for this one. What seemed to be a harmless vampire romance at first glance, turned into something much more sinister that left my stomach turning.

The show follows Yui who ends up in a house full of vampires as she was directed to by her father. But now that she had fallen down the rabbit hole there is absolutely no escape for her. All the vampire brothers there keep her as their sadistic prisoner, each taking turns at torturing her. It's not surprising for vampires to read more
