Mixed Feelings
Kinda surprised that nobody wrote a review so far.
I's a kids show and it's also nothing special in terms of quality, but the fact that Masaaki Yuasa (Kaiba,The Tatami Galaxy,Ping Pong) directed this and Kow Otani(Haibane Renmei,Shadow of the Collossus) did the music, should be reason enough to caught someones interest.

As for the series:
It has this distinct style in animation that only Yuasa is capable of.
Even if you didn't know that he directed it, you clearly can recognize the simalarities between Vampiyan Kids and Kaiba.

In addition to that it features jokes that I wouldn't expect from a kids show.
Nothing to morbid, but worth ...
