Here we are in the last season of the year….at least for anime. It’s FALL and…….
Yeah, I got nothing. This is the least-interested I have been in a season since……well, I don’t know…Winter 2015 or something. Either way, I didn’t have much of anything to look forward to this season due to most of the titles doesn’t look that interesting or it’s sequels of shows I really don’t give a flying fuck about (well, except one but that’s tomorrow.)
Anyway, without further due, let’s get it on with our first title to glance at…….
Bloodivores………so basically vampires?
I mean, come on! Herbivores=plants, carnivores=meat, bloodivore=turkeys? NO! VAMPIRES.
Anyway, here’s Bloodivores.

Plot Summary: 60 years ago, a strange case of insomnia struck the population, forcing them to stay awake for more than a full week. The victims, completely sleep deprived, all went mad. To cure this illness, a new medicine was produced, but the side effects turned the patients into vampires. Humanity went to war against this new species and triumphed, but some of the vampires managed to survive. Born from a Human and a Vampire, Mi Liu is the ringleader of a bank robbery, arrested, and transferred to a special prison of the National Defense Agency that monitors Vampires. Trying to break free with Anji, Mi Liu is attacked by strange monsters and he finds out that the prison location corresponds to the birthplace of Vampires, the old capital “Blue Town.”
First Thoughts: So……why does the plot synopsis sounds like something out of the Underworld series? Or better yet remember those forgettable movies like Legion or Priest? I mention the last one because this anime is based from a web manhua and it basically just explains the plot for us via news bulletin. It also doesn’t help that the first episode didn’t do a good job at it, especially since the characters aren’t all that compelling to give a damn about and the way the episode ends, felt like the ending of a short than continuation. Did I mention that the animation feels stilted and inexpressive? The CG on the chase sequence felt like something from Initial D if anything. Granted, it’s not the worst thing I watched and some of it is serviceable if you’re being lazy with your day and hopefully we might see it get better or at least not as half-assed.
This is a Low Priority Watch (and I mean LOW!)
That’s one down.
