Synopsis

60 years ago, a strange case of insomnia struck the population, forcing them to stay awake for more than a full week. The victims, completely sleep deprived, all went mad. To cure this illness, a new medicine was produced, but the side effects turned the patients into vampires. Humanity went to war against this new species and triumphed, but some of the vampires managed to survive. Born from a Human and a Vampire, the main character Mi Liu, "The Child of Hope," is to represent the new hope that will connect the two species. Ringleader of a bank robbery, Mi Liu is arrested and transferred to a special prison of the National Defense Agency that monitors Vampires. Trying to break free with Anji, Mi Liu is attacked by strange monsters and he finds out that the prison location corresponds to the birthplace of Vampires, the old capital "Blue Town." Why are Vampires trapped in Blue Town? What are those strange monsters attacking them? Our heroes must fight to solve those mysteries.

I decided to watch this anime based on the plot listed on CrunchyRoll, and seriously regret that decision. The plot, from the description, seemed fairly interesting, but boy did they drop the ball on this anime.

~~~ SPOILERS POSSIBLY~~~

Lets start with the characters;

Mi Lui: Generic "badass" with a winning personality. He's so predictable its sad. He also seems to be able to make these leaps in logic that make no sense unless you were the writer of this character.

Anji: The tits of the operation. That's it. She has large tits and is almost entirely useless.

Chen Fong: Doesn't wear a shirt. Cries a lot. read more

THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS: I WOULD RECOMMEND FIRST WATCHING THIS ANIME FIRST TO UNDERSTAND MY REVIEW

Bloodivores seemed to be the seasonal scrap-iron scarecrow of anime, attracting many dissenters who had gripes with understanding what Bloodivores is about. Admittedly, from this very reasonable mindset of trying to understand what exactly you are consuming, Bloodivores can't get very far. Given this, I feel compelled to write a review to justify my high score of a 7. However, even though I personally gave this anime a 7, I'm still internally stalemated as to whether it should be an 8, or even a 9. (If I go by averages, read more

For me, Bloodivores is the most magnificent dumpster fire of the season. There is plenty on this season that is not great and boring, but this at least does you the courtesy of being actively interesting in its seemingly utter ineptitude. In brief:
Story:
Incomprehensible? As of 7 episodes I find myself unable to tell if there is an overarching plot or if it is just a series of beige set pieces that the characters wander between because that is where the script says they are.

Characters:
0 Development, unlikable personalities, bland design, little to no explanation of backgrounds or motivations. It's almost like they skipped this part and read more

To be honest I’m not too sure where to start with this review so I guess I’ll just dive in.

Bloodivores is, in my opinion, a beautiful work of half-assed animation that either tried to hard or didn’t try hard enough. Personally, I like the landscapes and inane amount of detail regarding small insignificant things, like the intricate cracks in the cement and old buildings. It makes it feel like someone really worked hard on this series. Sadly, I think that was the only thing they worked hard on.

I will say out right that the concept and ideas behind Bloodivores is intriguing to me. read more
