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. read more

One of the most famous manga from Shounen Champion finally receives the anime adaptation.

KyuuShinu is an absurd comedy about a vampire hunter and a vampire that always dies. Their dynamics works well even when they are so different from each other, but they share the stupidity (one brain cell) As the plot follows Ronald and their huntings with Draluc and John (the vampire's armadillo) is a kind of slice of life, but extremely weird. The comedy in this series isn't for everyone and it has some cliches, but I find it funny enough. The art style is amazing, more polish than the manga, the bright read more

The John Show with Other Characters.

The second of the only two excellent vampire shows this fall season is The Vampire Dies in No Time. An absurdist comedy sitcom about a social media conscious, fame hungry Vampire Hunter called Ronald and his shut in, dweeb, Vampire roommate Draluc who turns into sand in almost any stressful situation or to physical violence… or the sun… or garlic, he dies a lot you see.

Depending on your tastes your experience may differ, but I laughed a lot watching this show. It’s jokes are well written with sharp humour, the animation is smooth and excellently done being a Madhouse read more

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 read more
