TIME OF THE SEASON Summer 2016 Edition: SERVAMP

Hmmm….an anime about a vampire servant? So add in two parts Black Butler minus the British-isms and two parts Blood Lad with all the silliness and wacky animation plus the fact Brains’ Base is animating this.

Welp, I know what I’m getting into. This is Servamp.

Plot Summary: When a stray black cat named Kuro crosses Mahiru Shirota’s path, the high school freshman’s life will never be the same again. Kuro is, in fact, no ordinary feline, but a servamp: a servant vampire. While Mahiru’s personal philosophy is one of non-intervention, he soon becomes embroiled in an ancient, altogether surreal conflict between vampires and humans.

First Thoughts: OK, I was right. This does feel like if Black Butler and Blood Lad made a child and Brains’ Base claim it as their own because it has all the supernatural elements of the latter and some of the style of the former. This is another one of those ordinary character enter this strange world and sees the wonderment of it…….just like Blood Lad and then we have our main leads with Kuro and Mahiru and we have our basic team-up of supernatural vampire servant and ordinary kid who’s…..actually OK as a character but not that compelling…..once again, Blood Lad. Then again, hopefully this will get……2 more episodes than the other series. This is …….serviceable. The animation isn’t all that great especially DEM SPEED LINES!!!! And the fight animation is actually forgettable to be honest but fuck it, I’ll watch it out of it being background noise.

So, this is mostly….LOW PRIORITY WATCH….Bi-weekly.

This has been MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid and……I’m getting some lunch…..in a hour and a half from now.

  1. I kind of hope Servamp finds its feet in an episode or two because it has all the ingredients needed for something half-decent but the first episode was kind of meh.
