The story feels so rushed probably because the anime version serves to be just a promotion to the upcoming release of the game. Animes have time constraints so they probably need to rush the story to get it moving. Since the story is not fleshed out in the 1 cour season, we need to play the game to know more and have individual character routes. Don't expect detailed backstories in the anime version. Something as like that will be present in the game. Still, I think its nice to have an anime first before the game so I know what I am getting into. While the plot is quite generic, its entertaining.

I'm itching for the game's release so I can get Mage, Shiki and Lindo~ Rem was okay, though he was kind of boring, the usual heir who is torn between responsibilities and love. Urie was your usual playboy type, although with Kondou Takashi voicing him, it's kind of hard to ignore him.

Fangirls do match clothes.
Lindo's hair can grow a little from one side or my eyes playing tricks again?
I used to think Roen the one sending random students to Ritsuka but it's Shiki?

I'm missing the pomeranian already. He got the cutest voice because Yamamoto ♥

This episode's song was my favourite so far, I just wish that the animation wasn't as laughable.

I can't believe that happened to Azuna! *^*

Love each other?! Bitch, you two hardly know each other. This Rem guy's not only got the personality of a goddamn shoe but he ain't shown no interest in you, he's not kind to you, he's literally a liar after your grimoire. Besides, they have ZERO CHEMISTRY. All they do is stare awkwardly at each other like some Twilight level shit, though that's mostly because they forgot to give Rem any real personality traits so staring is all he's good for.


This is pretty much what I feel about Rem and Ritsuka as well.

First, I agree with ultimateperson's post on the first page.

For the song, Ritsuka and Rem sang. Well, I liked it, but it reminded me a bit more on Disney than it should have, I think. It was a bit cliché and then, before the vampires attacked, Ritsuka even talked about the song and thought, if it really could be love. Whatever.

But I liked how Mage and the other two wanted to get their attention before the festival. I especially loved how Mage and Shiki acted in that whole scene. The part with the fangirls was a bit sudden and unexpected, but I didn't mind that, to be honest xD

Overall, I liked the episode pretty much. I didn't even mind Azuna dying, cause... well... I didn't hate her, but I didn't like her, either. I just dunno why. I don't think I'll miss her in any way.

But I hope they'll explain where Lindo got his vampire powers and I hope he'll talk about it with Ritsuka at some point in the next episodes. And I'm curious when they're going to help her mother. Also, the woman in the preview looked a bit suspicious, but I don't know what to think of her. Guess we'll find out more about her next episode.

This anime is good so far, but it could have been much better. Yeah, I know that's pretty hard to accomplish, just sayin' :3

And I completely agree with AiraKT's post, as well as the one from SpiritedSarah.

I was hoping Lindo would quit obsessing over his 'imouto'/cousin Ritsuka and start hanging out with Azuna more since she's pretty decent herself. I wish there's a way to revive her T^T

Currently soooo shipping Rem x Ritsuka. The rest can go jump off a cliff to be honest.
Azuna could have made a nice couple with Lindo, too bad she had to end up that way... She was a nice girl.

This episode proved that this show isn't your average reverse harem.

Finally we get to Rem. I can see why some people are put off by his scowls/ tsundere like nature. I can't say he's my favorite just yet (still undecided, though Mage and Shiki are lovable in their own ways ^_^ ) I also think some people are ignoring how the story is setting Rem up to be a tragic character you are clearly supposed to feel sorry for, as well as why he would be attracted to someone like Ritsuka. He has major abusive daddy issues and the weight of being the heir to this grand demon line on his shoulders, plus the threat of death (which for a demon I'm sure ain't pretty) and all of his "friends/colleagues" are constantly plotting to overthrow and thwart him. The lighting and layout of the past few scenes with just his inner dialogue scream "I am so effin alone and there is no one I can turn to besides this chessboard." Even his own dog betrayed him! Plus he's super conflicted about filial obligation vs. budding love for Ritsuka. This has Byronic hero written all over it.


Also as a side note, these seiyuu are killing me. Ugh. So happy with the male voices, absolutely love listening to them.



I really like Rem and agree with everything you said here and yes those seiyuus....they can sing to me all day long even if it sounds very Disney.

Sadly, it proved exactly the opposite for me. I thought this wasn't gonna be an average reverse harem thing, 'cause it actually has a cool female character that is NOT the main lead...but it turns out something like that simply isn't allowed to exist in a reverse harem <_<

Pretty disappointed over here. And that after the first half, where I was actually thinking this might be my favourite episode...

WOW, really wasn't expecting such a positive response haha--definitely thought I was in the minority. Glad to help, mina-san! :D

Some other random things I've been pondering regarding Rem for anyone interested (Under the spoiler for length):



Of course I may just be over reading all of this, we'll see later today I suppose :) Also I realllllyyyy want to see the past of all the devils/fallen angel if possible, how they met and got to be who they are (is an OVA of how the hell they got elected to the student council too much to ask?) We've seen chibi Ritsuka and Lindo, just imagine chibi Mage!! I can't. If Diabolik Lovers is any indication, Rejet isn't opposed to showing and diving into tragic backstories, plus I think it would help us better understand a few of the leads.

Also as another side note, given some of the other reverse harem animes I've seen (not talking about mangas or games because I know there are quite a few where the outcome is clear) I welcome some sort of definitive "the heroine likes this person and they like her back"conclusion rather than an unequal dynamic where the relationships don't really go anywhere and she still has 7 guys and a guinea pig drooling after her and there's no sense of closure. If this is the only season we're going to get of DwD and these two dorks can overcome their issues and still care for one another then once again I'm ok with Rem x Ritsuka. (and another duet ;D )

Yep, I'm a horrible human being. x) I was sad when Azuna got attacked and is now (maybe/ probably) dead.... But when the vampire started to laugh, so did I. I'm not sure why but it was hilarious.

Well, I never was that big of a Azuna fan...

Did anybody notice these weird runes in the middle of this episode?

I wonder what's up with that...
they could only be seen for a few seconds though...
It does not have to be perfect to be awesome.
The same counts for YOU Mr. Signature Reader~

The rings were cute. Wish my school dances back then did something like that ;3

This series just keeps going downhill....
I'm only thinking of getting it over with since I've gotten this far already and the fact that I forced myself to finish Diabolik Lovers (equally shitty) means I can get through this in all honesty..... but it's seriously such a drag *SIIIGGHHHH*

Ok so best girl Azuna died. The show should´ve been about her and not that stupid wall flower Ritskua. Then it actually could´ve been really good since the plot premise were quite interesting.
