In a world where death is not permanent, Terakomari "Komari" Gandesblood has been a self-proclaimed professional shut-in for the past three years. As part of the noble Gandesblood lineage, she once tried to meet the expectations of her family. However, as a vampire who cannot use magic or consume blood, she soon gave up on becoming an imperial general like her ancestors. Unfortunately, a misunderstanding with her father earns her the formidable position of one of the Seven Crimson Lords, the strongest fighters and generals in the Mulnite Empire.

Now, Komari must hide her lack of talent from the soldiers she commands, or they may attempt to overthrow her. Working alongside her newly-assigned maid, Villhaze, Komari manages to trick her unit of soldiers into believing she is a ruthless warlord and promises to conquer the world. But as more people come to admire Komari, her life is further threatened as a vampire from her past reappears with every intention to kill her for good.

The Vexations of a Shut-In Vampire Princess - "I don't wanna be part of the politics and warmongering that is affecting my kingdom! I just wanna rest in peace, and good day!" *slams door* - Terakomari "Komari" Gandesblood

Out of all of the many Fall season's offerings, I have to say that author Kotei Kobayashi's Hikikomari Kyuuketsuki no Monmon a.k.a The Vexations of a Shut-In Vampire Princess is one of those works that is the definition of a one-of-a-kind work that you don't really see experimented much in the AniManga space. This LN that started in January 2020 , which would go on to win the ...

Mixed Feelings
This anime has a very specific target audience, if you like yuri harem, vampire loli, secretly OP main character, then by all means, enjoy this anime to the fullest.
The animation was well done , most fight scenes was great to see which kept me watching.

Pretty generic story with forgettable characters. Main loli vampire character is not really likeable and the whole messiah/world domination plotline is boring.
Pacing for the anime got off track towards the last few episodes, really brought my overall rating for the show lower because of it.

Honestly, i had flashbacks of Sekai Seifuku: Bouryaku no Zvezda while watching this anime, same ...

Did we watch the same series?
I've been reading everyone's reviews and honestly the praise is a bit too high for what I saw. The first 10 episodes are actually pretty solid. Nothing awful, nothing praise worthy either. Could have been a solid time waster for the season but the last 2 episodes?

My. God.
It was awful.

I've never seen a modern show drop the ball so fast. I won't talk about the plot, or the characters, I'm only speaking about it's pacing, and quality overall. The quality took a nose dive, The last 2 episodes sped run the plot so fast, then decided ...
