Fifteen-year-old Ranze Etou lives a normal life for any girl her age—except for the fact that she resides in a castle with a vampire father and a werewolf mother who constantly worry about her lack of powers.

On her first day at a new school, Ranze meets the beautiful Shun Makabe and falls head over heels for him. While he remains oblivious, this does not stop Yoko Kamiya, the daughter of a yakuza boss, from becoming jealous. Furthermore, Ranze's parents despise the idea of her dating a human. On top of all that, Ranze has to cope with the manifestation of a new power—the ability to shapeshift into anything she bites!

Mixed Feelings
Tokimeki Tonight is not a well-known anime (which is why there are no reviews for it). It's fallen to the wayside since it finished airing 35 years ago. Is it fair or is there more to this series than what's on the surface?

If you ever wanted an anime version of the Addams Family with your typical shoujo clichés thrown in, this is the closest you're going to get.

Due to the episodic nature of the series, don't expect any significant progress. Yes, even after the dramatic events of episodes 25 and 26, everything turns back to normal when the credits roll. Also, don't be surprised ...

Preliminary (9/34 eps)
I want to preface this by saying that I did not finish this anime but I’m writing this because I’ve got plenty to say about what I did see. This review is pretty subjective and if the points I make don’t personally bother you then you might Like Tokimeki Tonight and I recommend heading over to YouTube where the whole series has been uploaded in pretty good quality.

At first glance the premise is really cool. The protagonist Ranze is an average 15 year old girl except for the fact that her mother is a werewolf and her father is a vampire ...
