I agree.
I really LOVE the manga... And this episode really kind of dissapointed me, though... But I've got my reasons to be dissapointed with it.
I don't really see the similarly to twilight, but if I try and look at it from the perspective of some anime only viewers... I MIGHT be able to at least catch the FEEL of it in this, at the start, at least, anyway.
With the info they left out, it might give some that impression.


I've read the manga up to it's most recent chapter 52 and I am totally in love with the story. I was also peeved by how much they left out of this episode. All the kotatsu (hope I spelled that right) and dinner conversations I'm pretty sure happened before the incident with the teacher. Which I'm pretty sure they neglected just so they could add in that little struggle scene between the two cause it wasn't in the manga!
I'm still pretty satisfied with the anime, it's the reason I found the manga in the first place, I just wish they wouldn't leave out so much. (In my opinion because they are leaving out so much it makes it seem like the two instantly fell in love and that Anzai looks a little like a creeper)


Completely agree. With everything you said. After episode 1, I went and in about a day and a half, I had read all 52 chapters out. I didn't know about it till the first episode, though.
Yes, the Kotatsu bit was before the teacher (Yuuki left his whole utility belt (not just his wallet) at her place), when he got the call to go calm his friend down. He had been sleeping under the kotatsu when that came in....

Anime only here. Not a great fan of the animation, but from 2 episodes, I feel like this is my kind of show. Love seeing and hearing about the psychological and mental side that each of these characters have to go through being who (or what) they are. It's a way more interesting take on character building when we're getting information doled out bit by bit, and sometimes only in monologues as well.

May well pick up the manga after watching this.

I dropped this anime halfway through the episode. JFC this is terrible from top to bottom.

About the pacing...

The first episode covered about 85% of ONLY THE FIRST chapter of the manga.
In contrast:
Episode #2 covered the rest of chapter 1 (skipping over most of what was left of it- but to be fair to the studio I'm saying it covered it), parts of chap #2 (actually, they skipped over more than half of this chapter, if I remember right).
And about 50%-70% (skipping over some and adding in a scene between the teacher and Tsukasa (from the time she handed him the book, till when she broke the mug, the stuff in between was mostly anime only additions), that was not in the manga) of chapter #3.

This is clearly not a show for me or for anyone with enough active neurons, it's purely nauseating to watch, shitty opening that is borderline attack on titan , why lord, why, awkward sound effects (moans,groans, sobs) bland female MC that lacks common sense, drama pulled out of ass that I couldn't care about, it's all fanservice meant to wet prepubescent teenagers, it goes to lowly extents to bring some shock value trying to make the viewer gain sympathy for the couple. Dropped.


lol i can't stand the awkward sound effects either, is cringy as hell :)))

The manga is nothing like Twilight.
People are getting that feel from it, because they have SERIOUSLY screwed up the pacing in the anime.
The only thing similar is the fact that its a human and a vampire (he's not even a full vampire. His mother is human) in love!
Nothing else seems similar!
These vampires are also NOT

The teacher's name is Keiji Ochiai.
As for his voice actor... I'm not sure either.
It did sound sort of like I had heard it before. But nothing about the voice actors lists who plays him.
It might be one of the regular VA cast playing him since he's not really worthy of having his own VA. It is annoying that I know that voice but can't place it. If it's one of the other VA's, then they might be altering their voice to sound a bit differently from whichever character they are playing.
If it's any of them, I'm thinking it might be Dr. Yanagi- who is played by: Satoshi Hino.... but I might be wrong that it's him. And the sleaze of a teacher might actually have his own VA.

The pace kinda slow a bit. If it picks up would be a good show. If they can't turn another into vampires it would be rather ok show. Also if they can die as well. Aren't humans but not undead.

Can be controlled but not exactly as impossible to not c blood totally... so devastating.

This girl who gets attacked by guys somehow managed to sneak past some cops and head to the roof of the building where the vampire was at? Yeah, OK. Wonder how many times he snuck into her room to sniff her while she sleeps before he got caught lol.

I want to say fuck this shit I'm out but I also want to wait and see what's up with the guy with heterochromia. My guess is he's some vamp-human hybrid?

This series has me cringing so hard I've left my body. It's bad, real bad and not the so bad it's good kinda bad. Not to mention the character design between the male MC and the female one look jarring next to each other.

Better than I'd expect.This show is a decent shoujo romance anime,and they described the conflicts among vampires pretty well.Although the professor part is kinda sudden,I guess it's not a big issue.

MC Girl was cuter this episode, and Anzai was also cuter this episode, but turns out blood lust is a problem for him... and the dudes a real creep, it's a good thing the girl likes him OR THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN WEIRD AS HELL. Also Sensei dude turned out to be a rapist... so ummm... that was a thing. This anime is stupid. But I like it.

That professor was fucking creepy I'm glad he got his face smashed

The dynamic between Tsukasa and Anzai is pretty cute <3

Also I guess I'm a fucking idiot but I didn't realize he was masturbating before reading this thread lol

Oh, I'm glad to know I wasn't the only one bothered by those, they were making me very uncomfortable to the point of pausing from one minute to other struggling to finish the damn episode, my brain cells were faintly screaming "stop it, you'll kill us". She could be easily replaced by any otome female protagonist or any bland damsel in distress generally.

The wannabe romantic moments fall flat and are embarrassing to witness, the camera angles aren't that bad , the animation is the only actual decent trait of the show, of course that alone cannot save it from being trashy.

Last week I said to myself "Meh, I'm gonna watch one more episode." but I was sooo sure that I was gonna drop this series after this episode. Well, I won't. It's really edgy as hell, sometimes cringy and everything but finally a bloody anime without censorship, and it's not afraid to show us the rough scenes. Moreover I ship Azai and Tsukasa so hard I can't even understand why (I usually go for the gay ships with such enthusiasm). So at some point during the episode this whole edgy mess became somehow entertaining.

yes i think you're right , but i don't think it's Satoshi hino's voice ,if so i could figure it out bc he's one of my fav voice actors .. but anyway thanks for your answer ^^

Ya know they're really trying to make a plot where Tsukasa is this seemly stupid girl, who has a bad sense of timing when she could have just give anzai' wallet to the cops, and return the book in the morning.....Anzai on the other hand seems to be a stalker.

I'm starting to think that this story plot would depend on tsukasa being in trouble and Anzai come to the rescue......

Btw some rape scene that was we didn't even get to see Tsukasa's nipples.

"I thought silence was consent."

So that's why this show is in the 6000's.

But seriously, I bet that line triggered a lot of people, and not the internet's definition of the word. The sad thing is that there are people who still believe this to be true.

This episode was rushed, they skipped some important scenes, to a point where they made him look like a creepy stalker. Even so, i still enjoyed watching this very much. I can't wait for the next episodes to air. <3

Others don't seem to think they skipped important stuff, but they did. A lot of things! They animated around 85% of chapter 1 for ep 1, then maybe about 10%-15% of chapter 2 and 40% of chapter 3 (40% might be giving them too much credit) for episode 2 (not to mention they added things that weren't in the manga).
Its stupid. People are getting a terrible impression of the story from this.

Maybe I've been spoilt by other excellent stories, but man that was lame. Each secene felt forced. The art is simply ugly, and I don't really care for any of the characters.

1. orphan
2. half vamp hunting his own kind
3. works for special police
4. has to control his lusts

BORING. Give something more original please.

Good idea. Wish more did that, rather than insult the story, characters and those who like the source material, based on this anime.
