Taito has been really sleepy lately, and keeps dreaming of a female vampire who says she has given him her "poison." Sometimes he even thinks he hears her voice when he's awake. But after surviving an accident that should have killed him, Taito's world changes drastically and he realizes that his dreams are more real than he thought.
I don't really understand what was in the author mind when he did that anime.It's like he started with a story ,a strong story with a big plot and all...And then finally choose to rush over it and turn the anime into a school-life/harem/fanservice one.Not that I'm complaining about that ,I love school-life ,harem and fanservice :3 .But damn...Don't do that like that ! It's like you plan to watch Lord of the Ring for the first time and when you do it it is :
*first hour* "Frodon ,you have to destroy the ring.Go to the Mount Doom and throw it into that damn lava so we can screw Soron !"
*Later* "Hey Frodon ! Wanna go to the pool?" "F-Frodon-chan...I..I lo..Lov" "Waaah ! Frodon-san ,it's so nice that we're all at the beach for the summer break !"
Disturbing right?...Well ,that's more or less the same thing with Kuro Usagi.
During the first episodes it is plot after plot after plot after plot ! Everything go ultra supra fast ! Like "This guy is an enemy ! But finally he's good ! Now he'll help us against this guy ! And now this guy is not really the worst one ! But we have to take care of that one !...Well finally we've deal with that one so let's take care of...Oh already deal with it ,okay...But Aaaah ! Take care of the PROPHECY !!!" And after that..."Oooh pool party ,yay ! Loli-chan ,wait for meeee ! Aaaah the beach is so nice ,let's go swim all together !"...Wait what?!
Okay okay I'll stop it here and I'll try to make it more clear.What I try to say is that this anime is made on the wrong side.Normally on those kind of animes things go that way :
1 - The hero is an idiot ,he's useless ,but he want to grow stronger for protecting his nakama.Childhood friend love him.The new girl love him too.He want to protect both of them and prepare for a hard training.
2 - Plot incoming ! As our hero start to train for becoming stronger ,we have the plot who slowly start to appear.Mysterious enemies slowly show their face and are conspire against the hero because they want something from one of the girl ,but you don't know what or why.
3 - Fanservice time ! Of course ,the plot is in preparation and our hero is in training ,what do we need for making everyone wait and more or less enjoy this waiting? Fan service ! Boobs ,bikini or nude scene where every characters get together at the same place at the same time with no fucking good reason just so we can have a lot of funny ,ecchi scene.
4 - The hero became stronger ,but it's not enough and as he try to protect the so wanted girl ,he fail miserably and the girl is finally taken by the bad guys.So the hero ask X mysterious person for a special training so he can be even more stronger ,but that training contain risk but our hero don't give a fuck about risk so he do it because he want to save the girl !
5 - The hero became even more stronger ,beat the bad guys ,save the girl ,which is about to confess or really confess her love to him.The other girl is jealous and do the same.The hero can't choose between both ,both get angry ,everyone laugh ,the end.
That's how everythings go normally is those kind of anime.But in this one it's the opposite.We start directly with a plot ,and a new one ,and a new one ,and a new one again.First you ear about a dangerous "demon" or so who was linked to Himea.So you think that this one is the bad guy.But at the same time Himea is hunted by a bad guy ,Hinata ,getting out of nowhere like a wild Garen get out of the bushes and start raping everyone wih some creepy god-like magics ,so you think that this one is the main bad guy and that the "demon" you heard about earlier will be the main menace later.And...No.Hinata is the bad guy for one episode ,after he disappear and sometimes make some cameo here and there (Seriously I though it was Stan Lee sometimes.).
Two episodes later ,the "demon" appear.Yea ,so soon.But you learn that it's not a demon but something different linked to Himea.But don't care too much about it because it disappear one episode later and a new plot come in !...Which is over one episode later again.And now you ear about something called Tenma which clearly when the ass of Himea ,lie he really REALLY want it that badly !..But after a little conversation he doesn't care anymore about Himea ,he just care about a Prophecy (Oh god how many time did I heard that word in that anime which never gave any information about it !).And finally ,as you begin to heard about the prophecy more often ,Hinata make a new cameo for saying "Hi ,I know much more about the prophecy than you lol !" than disappear.And now ,they tell you that the prophecy is coming...Everything is ready for that...Everyone is here just as keikaku...And now?...Fanservice time ! O.O No really ,it's totally that.Half of the anime it's "plotting time" and the other half it's "fan service #WeDon'tCareAboutTheStory #Yolo time".So ,my examination :
Story (5) : A lot of mysteries ,a lot of plots ,a lot of questions and...Nothing.The story started greatly and is rushed like hell ,at a point that it's hard to clearly understand everything because it goes just too fast for that.And finally nothing is answered ,the prophecy is coming but apparently nobody care ,the hero go for some training at the end but we don't know why.Everyone wanted Himea but now nobody care about her and we don't know why.So yea ,the story is rushed and confused and it's sad because it had a big potential ,but wasted.
Art (8) : Artwork is great I have to admit it ,the characters are high quality and a special attention was made for the hairs because all girls have multicolor hairs.Special mention for Himea hair who apparently are full of fireflies...That's the only explanation I have about all those white moving spot she have everywhere in her hair !
Sound (6) : Not bad ,not awesome ,it's fair.
Characters (7) : A Useless MC ,a childhood friend ,an immortal vampire witch with fireflies in her hair ,a dark-emo "I-Hate-Everyone" black haired guy ,a loli with a kind of catgirl style (*-*).That's the casting.But I have to say that when I say "Useless MC" I really mean it for this one.On most shonen the MC is useless at the beginning and at the end he's Chuck Norris.But nah ,here he start useless and finish useless ,even as he train he continue to be useless and to be saved by Himea or Emo-boy and his loli.But anyway ,useless MC put aside ,the group is a funny one and go well together so I can't really say that the casting is bad.
Conclusion :...Well...Dear author...The next time...Avoid the plot.Just do a Harem-style anime full of fanservice if it's what you wanted to do.And if not then start and FINISH your story.But don't do both when you plan to only do 12 episodes ,because you can't do both in 12 episodes !...Aaaah.Well...I think that this anime is not really bad ,but it's clearly not an awesome one.Watch it and make your own opinion ,I'm sure some peoples will hate it ,some will love it ,and some like me will be neutral.
PS : Damn ,I sure have talked a lot ,sorry for that and...Waw...You really have read me to this point?...Really?...You sure have time to loose :3read more
Open endings, don't you just hate them? It's okay when a sequel is made but nothing of the sort is even planned. This is something Zexecs keeps doing, examples of this are Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu, Chrome Shelled Regios and of course this series, Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi. However this series lacks a lot of things that the two other series listed above have. It doesn't leave you wanting for more like the other two.
The story is a mess. For a series that is only twelve episodes long, it jumps from place to place a lot. Although the events do have some sort of connections to each other, they seem to come out of nowhere. Even though there are a lot of things happen, the plot hardly goes anywhere. Almost everything that happens is not interesting or memorable. The ending does set itself up for a sequel but here’s the problem, when has Zexecs ever created a sequel to anything? The answer to that question is never, and it’s not just this anime produced by Zexecs that has an ending like this. They have produced a number of anime that don’t have a conclusive ending. However despite having a lot of negatives, the series does have some positives to it. The plot does have some uniqueness to it and it is not as predictable as one may think. The creativeness was there and if the series had been executed better who knows, the plot may have been interesting.
Any series that can develop characters well in 12 or 13 episodes deserves applause because that isn’t a lot of time to really give any character any deep development. Like many other series of that length, it falls short in the character department. The main male protagonist isn’t very bright, he just dives head first into any given situation without thinking anything out. He is nearly immortal but nearly dies on numerous occasions because of his own recklessness but without his reckless nature nothing interesting would happen so it’s understandable to why they made the character this way. He also doesn’t develop much through-out the series, he remains almost unchanged from the beginning to the end of the series. At least he isn’t oblivious or spineless. He does realize the love triangle that he is in even though it is blatantly obvious. The female characters don’t develop much either and they can also get pretty annoying with how clingy they are. They have no depth to their character. The side characters aren’t that much better either, none of the characters really stand out and aren’t memorable at all but since the series was only 12 episodes long, we can’t really expect much.
The art is colorful is say the least. Every character has a different hair color and some have more than one hair color but it looks like they got lazy with the character designs, they look very basic, nothing popping out and two of them even look the same. The animation is pretty average, not bad but not outstanding either, it looks like something you would expect from any other anime.
The sound is pretty average too. Nothing special, the opening is fast which gets you pumped and the ending is very sweet. Both are catchy but nothing special.
The genre of the anime gives the creators a lot of flexibility and because of that, there is a certain degree of expectation. It can be entertaining but at the end of the day the series just falls flat on its face.
Overall the series is very unique but it is lacking in many areas and negatives really overshadow the positives. read more
After seeing the first 2 episodes, this anime is interesting to say the least. Though the main goal, or "quest" of the main character is uncertain as of yet, it is apparent that the story will unfold and blossom as the series goes on.
As said before, the story looks a bit mysterious and yet intriguing at the same time, since the series is only on it's second episode, it's hard to say where the direction is headed, however, I will say this, the story if very suspenseful and makes the viewer want to watch another episode to see what will happen next. The story is relatively simple, but is executed in a way that is easy to understand by illustrating details from the past, and how they affect the present situation. Hopefully the story will blossom into a wonderful flower of entertainment.
The characters seem relatively simple on the surface, but behind the friendly and welcoming exterior of the characters, is a mysterious past that can only be found out by continuing to watch the anime. I have high hopes for how the characters will be unraveled, and hope to learn what secrets they keep.
The art for this series is pretty good, I'm not one for hair colors that are out of the ordinary like pink or sky blue, but for some reason, it tends to work in this series. The characters are well drawn, and the detailing on certain aspects of this anime are really well drawn, the art draws me in and intrigued me quite a bit.
Overall, this anime is still in it's early stages, but i have a feeling that it will have a satisfying storyline as it progresses. It has a lot of the things i could ask for in an anime, dynamic characters with a mysterious past, well drawn detailing, a nice setting, the action of using magical spells for combat, and a storyline waiting to be unraveled by the viewer. I can't wait to see how this will unfold, and i recommend that you check out this anime, it certainly is interesting for 2 episodes so far.read more
I first read the manga version of these way before it ever came out as an anime. The first 8 chapters, which I could find at the time, were very intriguing for me and when I heard that this will be an anime, I was very excited. I wasn't disappointed.
As far as the story goes, I think it is as well as it could be put with a 12 episode anime. The idea in itself is very interesting and for all you vampire/zombie fans out there, this is a pretty good choice. However, I think the highlight of this series was not the story but rather the art.
The art was one of the higest quality I've ever seen. The only reason I'd give it a 9/10 is because I didn't like how the tips of characters with long hair had different color, which I think was an original touch but did not appeal to my taste. Other than that, the art was fantastic. The color, the effect, etc. it all was appealing to me.
The sound was pretty good as well. The opening and ending, wasn't the best but wasn't the worst as well. That aside, the background music fit each scene though they were using almost the same track for most of the time.
The character is surprisingly cliched yet a bit different. We have our normal main character who is popular to his girls, and has a bit of perversion. Then we have the main heroine, who is actually not what most heroines would be. She is cutesy around the main character (the guy she likes) and is cold towards others, which I think was a nice touch. Next we have our usual childhood friend of the main character, who serves the purpose of jealousy as well as some role at the end. We also have the sub main character, who is arrogant and calls himself a "genius" and is of course, popular to all girls in his school. Then we have his partner, a loli, who happens to get quite a lot of panty shots from the very first episodes and does all the normal childish stuff.
Overall I definitely think this anime is worth a try, mainly if you want a romance anime rather than an action-focused anime. The art is great, the story is fine, and it's all good!read more
