Vampires are known to have many weaknesses that balance out their incredible power, but the vampire lord Draluc happens to be weak to pretty much anything.

The vampire hunter Ronald receives a job to infiltrate the castle of the so-called "Invincible Progenitor" and rescue a woman's son from the monster within. But upon arriving, he is dumbfounded to discover that the vampire quickly turns to ash by something as trivial as a clap of his hands! Moreover, the child he was sent to save had merely wandered in to play the vampire lord's video games while he slept!

In a disastrous turn of events, Draluc's castle is destroyed, and the fragile vampire decides to move in with the hunter who has only just defeated him. Ronald, Draluc, and the vampire's pet armadillo John form quite the eccentric team as they are forced to work together while fending off Ronald's violent editor, the lesser vampires plaguing the city, and even their fellow vampire hunters.

The Vampire Dies In No Time has a pretty lousy introduction. The jokes don't land and the two main characters just aren't very likable, nor is the show any interesting. However, first impressions aren't everything, and after letting it simmer for a few more episodes (or maybe it's the Stockholm Syndrome kicking in), I ended up having a blast every week with this show.

The show follows your standard boke-tsukkomi routine with Ronaldo and Draluc taking on each role depending on the situation. The comedy itself can get fairly juvenile or basic but I'd be lying if I didn't at least smile most of the time. ...

If there's ONLY ONE way that I can recommend this show to all of you, please watch it just for John, the adorable South American pet armadillo that's instantaneously loved by all. It should get its own spin-off story, for real.

Comedy series can be hit or miss. Those that really dig you hard to the point of LMAOing, like Grand Blue or Asobi Asobase, or the latter that tries too hard to appeal to everyone, like this season's Shinka no Mi a.k.a The Fruit of Evolution. Where mangaka Itaru Bonnoki's work on Kyuuketsuki Sugu Shinu a.k.a The Vampire Dies in No Time lies at, IMO ...

What do you get when a comedy anime doesn't know how to make a joke? A bad show and also The Vampire Dies in No Time.

The beginning of a review is where I would usually put a plot synopsis, but in trying to summarize the plot, I realized that The Vampire Dies in No Time doesn't really have one. Well, it does... in the way that Captain Planet has a story, but it's one that loses all importance after the first episode. Think of the story as more of a way to get the characters into silly situations than one to be thematically plotted. And ...
