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, the main character Mi Liu, “The Child of Hope”, is to represent the new hope that will connect the two species. Ringleader of a bank robbery, Mi Liu is 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." Why are Vampires trapped in Blue Town? What are those strange monsters attacking them? Our heroes must fight to solve those mysteries.
This sums up my feelings for this shows first episode: On shows that move the climax to the start of the episode so they can play it twice. The first episode is so staggeringly cliche it's a wonder that the studio greenlit it. Literally nothing about its plot or characters is unique or new, the artwork and sound aren't special, and there's no twist waiting for you. The characters are very, very hard to sympathize with. Sure, they're unfortunate enough to have to eat blood to survive. And they're... Wait, was that it? They're just normal people who have to eat blood to survive? Hospitals now adays throw away TONS of blood, why not just have that about-to-expire blood be donated to a food service for bloodivores? The hospitals get cash for garbage, bloodivores get a meal, everyone's happy. "For a crime he didn't commit"? Really? He DID plan and execute a bank robbery, and undoubtedly killed a few cops in the escape, does it really matter that he didn't kill the fifteen random people during the incident? He's not some innocent, framed bystander. He's a repeated felony criminal who has been getting BAILED OUT up till now by his dad. Sure, he valiantly ****ed himself and his crew in the arse to 'save' a teammate wh had a 0% chance of escape, but was a completely idiotic act of 'bravery' really a good point for the main char? Personally, I thought it just went to show what a terrible job was done on the plot here, that the writer thought THAT would win us over to "The Child of Peace's" side. The reason why I'm not giving this a 2-3 is this: It might have some promise. It's hard to tell, honestly. Episode 2 was better, but still had a ton of BS that it wanted me to take.
Overall, the story is okay. I can't say it's one of the best animes I've watched. What I can say is that this show is more for people who enjoy cliches and lots of supernatural stuff. I personally think that Bloodivores is not for everybody, but it is something that I find intriguing.
When I first saw the first episode, I thought it would be a decent action adventure. Nothing to terribly deep, but something that could keep me entertained. Was I wrong. I watched this story to episode 5 in the hopes that something would grab me, but nothing ever did. STORY – Our story is about 4 friends that are convicted of a crime they may not of committed, transported to an area that may or may not be a post-apocalyptic future, to fight creatures. This is all happening for REASONS. Now there are some clues that point out they were transported to this “future”. But the fact that the story switches between the “normal” and “post-apocalyptic” times so often it makes it feel non separate. Then we have the flash backs (information dumps) that have all the depth of feeling of reading binary. And don’t get me started about the main character finding out he has super powers in episode 3 and already mastered them by episode 4. ANIMATION – Not much to complain or praise here. Nice character models. Good monster designs. Everything moves in a believable fashion. My biggest complaint, gravity defying balloon breasts. SOUND – Again, no real problems here. Everything seems to fit with no real stand outs either good or bad. CHARACTERS – YAWN. I mean after 5 episodes I should have some feelings for these characters. I ”Should” either like them or hate them. I feel nothing. OVERALL - MEH
