Synopsis: Maaka Karin comes from a family of vampires living in Japan, but she is not a normal vampire. Vampires are normally supposed to drink the blood of their victims but Karin suffers from a condition that causes her body to produce excessive amounts of blood. About once a month, she has to get rid of the excess blood by giving it to her “victims.” But she somehow manages to go to school like everyone else her age.
Well, things are about to get more complicated. When a new student, Usui Kenta transfers into Karin’s class, she starts producing unusually huge amounts of blood, almost as if in reaction to him. Worse, he happens upon Karin’s true nature…
Pros: Instead of being the typical horror/thriller/suspense combination aimed for anime dealing with vampire, Karin instead heads in completely the opposite direction going for a lighthearted romantic comedy with a few serious moments. Karin’s family each have their own particular quirks and affinities. Karin’s mother, prefers to drink the blood of lying women.
Karin’s particular blood affinity only becomes clear a few episodes into the series, although as mentioned, rather than causing her to thirst for blood, it makes her blood increase, resulting in some rather spectacular nosebleed.
Cons: The animation is not the greatest, but this isn’t an action anime. The story is also not too deep, so if you’re wanting something with a deeper meaning look elsewhere.
