After unknowingly participating in a kidnapping, college student Yuuya Nomoto finds his friends brutally murdered by Hitomi Uzaki, the high school girl they attempted to abduct. Forced to drive her to an undisclosed location, he finds himself being wagered as the prize for a death match between two Therianthropes, superpowered human-animal hybrids created through advanced gene therapy. As one of these hybrids, Hitomi uses the speed and fearlessness she gained from her ratel genes to viciously dispatch her foe and save Yuuya from certain death.

Waking up hours later hoping the whole event was only a nightmare, Yuuya realizes that he has become embroiled in a secret proxy war between four large Japanese business conglomerates, with the winner taking control of the economy. As her sole albeit unwilling investor, his life is now directly linked to Hitomi's ability to participate in underground bloodsport matches known only as Killing Bites.

The story is basically battle royale but with animals. These people are infused with specific animal DNA resulting in them being able to turn into their animal forms. Okay not the best story wise but the fighting is what really drew me into this anime. Okay I would be lying if it was 100% the fighting, a large portion of it revolved around the amount of HEAVY fan-service in this anime. Which can always boot the enjoyment of an anime as well.

The art and animation was really well done. LIDENFILMS has yet to disappoint me when it comes to high quality art and animation.

Hey guys,

I read the manga, i knew what i had to expect.
And man, i wasn't dissapointed. This could be the best worst anime of 2018.
I seriously was waiting for this anime, even though i knew it won't be something humanity wants to remember in the future.

This show is utter trash and i love it.

If you want to have a good time just watching boobs and people killing each other, then you are in for a hell of a ride.

The Story is unimportant and just a framework for the explosive action and eroticism.

The music rocks. I have to say, the music is really good, the read more

A violent battle among people who morph into animals, with lots of action and fanservice. "That's what Killing Bites is"

The story begins when an average college student, Yuuya Nomoto, agrees to go pick up girls with his newly made acquaintances. Little did he know that by picking up they meant kidnapping and attempting a rape. Things don't go as planned, though, because Hitomi aka Ratel, the girl they try to mess with, turns out to be a real beast. That all leads to Nomoto getting mixed up in the world of therianthropes and their deadly fights.

It's easy to understand what Killing Bites is like. read more

Please note this review is intended to be read by those that have finished watching the Killing Bites and while care has been taken to minimise story related spoilers there may still be spoilers within character analysis. You have been warned!

One nights encounter with a beast girl that changed the life of a mediocre student and introduces him to a hidden world of bloody beast fights.

Based on a popular manga of the same name Killing bites is an action based anime that also feature elements of sci-fi and ecchi Killing Bites gives us the opportunity to see what exactly would happen read more
