Many people will say Diabolik Lovers is a waste of time but everyone has there own opinions and mine is that I really really really loved this anime. Yes I understand that Yui Komori is being sexually harassed but all the guys and they can be a little odd at sometimes but having a twist like this and not the typical ¨Twilight¨ stuff is a new change. Through out the season we get to learn stuff about each character and there background. There are many people out there who doesn't like that this girl is treated this way but all of us just really need
to remember that this is just made up, and that the only real sexually parts to this is when there ¨feeding¨ on her. The main characters are vampires to point out and they aren't real so no one needs to worry about seeing a girl out in reality sucking someones blood. The art is very impressive in these series and I really enjoyed on how much detail they put into each scene. Which isn't even that graphic. All you see mainly is one of the guys biting her, and maybe a little blood once in a while. But that mainly it to the ¨gross parts¨ The plot is something I would have not suspected and that's just what wanted me to keep watching and waiting for what would happen next, and I can't wait until they make the second season. The characters are very well laid out there personalities are all different, and they all have different looks. At the end of the last episode I didn't quite like it because they leave us off on a cliffhanger, but don't worry if you decide to watch this amazing piece of artwork season 2 will probably answer our undying questions. I do truly hope you will give this a go even if it may seem something you don't watch just give it another try.
Thanks for reading my review!!
And welcome back to this sadist anime... Yay. Not much has changed. The sadist-harassment and possessiveness still remains, along with the abusive-fetish theme. I'd say this OVA is slightly more messed up than the original series. If you're a DL fan, you'll probably like this. If not, don't even touch it, for your own mental wellbeing.
STORY: Sad. Very sad.
ART: The art is actually amazing. I love the character designs and color tones.
SOUND: Love it.
ENJOYMENT: I kind of wanted it to end as soon as it began...
OVERALL: I'm not touching this series with a bargepole ever again.
Overall: Dreadful, dreadful and dreadfullllllllll 2.
Ok, so what we have here can only be describe as the introduction of the Mukami's and the Tsukinami's for the upcoming season 2 of this dreaded anime. Already, what I can see were just the addition of other reverse harem members, that would further complicated Komori Yui's already hellish situation as the vampires' living blood bank, so far since the OVA was still connected to the 1st season's story (up), there is no point anymore
of me giving this OVA a higher score than 5. Also, the Art (up) as usual them vamp assholes look like a bunch of homosexual old farts, both in fashion and in hairstyle. Sound(up).....well, there isn't much for me to say anything, since the ones who did the character's voices are still there, it's basically a mediocre. Character (up), they literally suck, as they are just good in sucking up the poor girl, and already I don't see any happy ending for the girl in the up coming season 2 and I also don't see any bad ending for them vampire asshole, like them Sakamakis', Mukamis' and the Tsukinamis' in the upcoming season 2, Enjoyment (up) I feel like going to Japan and give the writer of this dreadful anime/OVA a smack in his/her face (don't ya'll even get me started, putos). Overall (up) it sucks, sucks and suck, basically this OVA hasn't strayed away from its usual blood sucking porn.
I'm not sure why I'm watching this anymore. I've always had this terrible urge where I can't stop myself from finishing series-- unfinished series leave me a bad taste in my mouth, even if it's just additional seasons.
Good thing I've too lazy to start long anime.
Regardless, I think this OVA was rather pointless, but then again, if you enjoyed the original show, then I think you should go ahead and watch this, because they are very, very similar.
There is really no story line. It's just more guys lining up to drink Yui's blood and her letting it happen. Nothing else. Literally nothing
happens, not even kidding. I feel like at this point, I've had too many bad experiences with vampire franchises that I'm not sure if I can watch any more.
The art, like always, is decent. The hair and eyes are pretty, some outfits are pretty good, others are tolerable, settings are gloomy but watchable. Nothing special, though. Some scenes weren't well thought out, however. For example, Shuu catches an apple thrown towards him from several meters away, but the art and sound affects make it seem like it was less than a few feet. Even if that's accounting to vampire strength, his hand was facing the opposite direction from where the apple was thrown. Negligence.
The sound was nothing remarkable. The male voice actors did a good job, and as usual, Yui did nothing and said nothing. I believe she might have had one line, and after that, she might've just repeated "ayato-kun" and "no..." over and over again.
The characters, as always, were pretty terrible. No development, no morals, no layers, no justified bad or justified good. Just animals going after Yui, their meat.
I didn't really enjoy this. I kept on checking to see how much was left because I wouldn't bear watching it, really. But again, I can't stand leaving things unfinished, so I guess here I am.
I would recommend this if: you are into anything under the bdsm umbrella, you like vampires and bloodplay, you like heroines who don't do anything, assault is okay to you, you liked the original series
I would NOT recommend if: you didn't like the original series, you are big about consent, you like characters with personalities, you like plot, you want development, you were looking for a scary anime
