A decent first episode.
Glad to see Megumi die, what an annoying bitch.
The art style's kinda weird, also wtf is with the cat ears? O_o
3.5/5

I was worried that Megumi was going to be a main character, thank god she wasn't.

The opening was not really my style, but I guess is not that bad, so I can dealt with it.
I know everyone hates Megumi but I actually liked her, oh well.
The whole thing is about vampires so I'm really hoping that this is not another cliche anime about it. I guess I'll know about that in the next episode or so.

Very promising first episode. Thought she's gonna be the main character at first. But well...

For some reason I thought this was a comedy show. I mean, judging by the art style and the funny Megumi, and especially that funky looking dog, how could it not be?

And well... it doesn't seem like horror would fit in at all...

Uhm, wat o______o

Not sure if I'll continue - I feel like they introduced too many characters all at once and I'm not sure which ones are relevant and which ones aren't.

For the first episode, it was meh meh. Kinda boring and too trippy for my liking. The ending was interesting though, and the dog is simply awesome.

It's the cutest dog I've seen in anime, definitely xD

Interesting first episode. Enough to have me interested in watching the next one right away!

We meet Megumi. A little bit annoying but tolerable in my case. We get introduced to a plethora of characters with crazy designs. Hmmm....

Megumi dies.. and the other mysterious deaths intrigue me too. And this mysterious family?

Uh huh. Well let's see what happens!

Why do 50% of the characters have weird hair? I dig the animation style otherwise, but the hair is weird. The doctor kinda reminds me of Kiritsugu for some reason.

Am I the only one who has a feeling Megumi isn't really dead? Though I hope she is.

Well go ahead and kill off my favorite character only right after you introduce her why don't you? I thought Megumi was going to be the main character, sad day. Why make such a stylized intriguing character only to kill them off straight away? Almost enough to make me drop this right off the bat.

Huh. Surprised to see so much dislike at the character designs. I thought they weren't that bad.


Bah, nowadays people hate everything that is unique and love everything that is mainstream.

hence why most anime(like occult academy...oh god, such an awesome concept turned into such a cheap stuff) is plagued by moemoeblog character designs, mary sues and cheap comedy.


And as soon as someone does something unique, everyone starts hating.

How many people dropped Mononoke(previous noitaminA show) just because they thought that "the animation looks lameeeee"?

Otaku love their mary sue characters. By the time someone starts doing something unique or you know, acts like realistic person, they start hating~


i know this is a 6yr old post but gosh dude, what is your problem with people not liking this show? you're going ham in ppl for the first 3 pages lol

first episode is pretty creepy. not sure what to say since it's only the beginning. but like 50-60% of the characters' hair is unbelievable! and the OST is excellent. i came to this show mainly because of it lol

Typed some guy, not some vampire. If I remember right the chick in twilight was all over the guy before she found out he was a vampire. Just because you disagree with a post that was made after watching the first episode doesn't mean it's not a reasonable reaction to what was shown.

you're describing twilight, but i fail to see how it's alike to this show, this episode at least.

Interesting first episode.
Character designs kinda remind me of Code Geass, with the long bodies and similar faces.
Love the thought of the guy that Megumi liked, "At least I dont have to close the blinds anymore" ... :D

WHAT THE FUCK. I watched this episode on August 14th. Tomorrow is Monday 15th August, the same date that Megumi died, and it's my birthday. I'm getting some series death flags here. D,:

Wow Megumi is having some far fetched dreams that led her in trouble but I like how this first episode and it piqued my interest. Can't wait to see more

An odd first episode, not exactly boring, but not exactly grabbing. One issue is the annoyance for having character's names pop in a subtitle rather introducing us to them via dialogue. It's just a cheap and quick way to introduce everyone without actually giving them a chance to BE a character. I dislike it; if they're that important, introduce them naturally.

Because of the above, it's hard to follow what's going on, esp when the dates come into play. Kinda hard to figure out the timeframe because they go by too darn fast.

The rest is standard affair. The clinic doctor must be some kind of dumb, though, because he doesn't say "Hey, take her to the hospital to get blood." She's beyond normal anemic; anyone can tell she's annoying Death at his door.

This looks like its going to be nightmare inducing. Megumi sort of annoyed me at first, and the beginning was just a little boring, but I can tell it's going to get good.
