Dance In The Vampire Bund is definately one of those animes you accept and end up enjoying or you come at with preconceived notions of what it should be and you never end up getting over that. I actually almost gave up on this show immediately based on its loli aspects. However the premise of the show intrigue me so i kept watching and i'm so glad i did. First if your not into loli ignore the fact the main character has the body of a little girl and just enjoy everything else about the anime. This will definately end up becoming one of my top animes and i can't wait to get started on the manga.
The story i felt was really well done for the short amount of episodes this anime had. A lot of people who initially see this show dismiss it as just some excuse to show a little girl naked. Ignore that fact about the show and by the end you will find out their is a reason the leader of all vampires has the body of a little girl. If you stick with it with an open mind it will make you even a little emotional especially towards the end when truths are revealed. How do you cope with having to let go of someone you love? How do you face your responsibilities when it means giving up the one person that makes you smile? Those are just a few of the things dealt with in this great anime that i felt tied everything up nicely by the end
I really loved the animation in this one and loved all the characters models in it. The only small negative is that in a few action scense the animation seemed a little to static for my liking.
Really enjoyed the music throughout the series, especially the opening. The opening i felt was really well done with the main characters and the animation goes with the song nicely.
There are quite a few characters in this but i felt i knew enough about them to actually care about them even though the anime was so short.
Overall this is one anime that needs to be seen with an open mind. Forget what we have come to accept as what a vampire should be along with what they can and cant do. Ignore the fact that there are lolita elements in this show since there is a reason behind it. Just enjoy the wonderful story, the interesting characters. the music that guides you along the journey, and one fine example of some good anime.
