When Utsutsu and Yume were young, they were physically and emotionally abused by their sadistic father; and now that they’re older, Utsutsu swears above all else that he’ll protect his little sister at any cost. So when the girl is infected with the mysterious Pupa virus, causing her to turn into a terrifying monster that eats anything around her, the boy does the only thing he can: he offers his sister his body and flesh to consume. He won’t die, for Utsutsu was also infected with the virus, giving his body the superhuman ability to regenerate from any wound, and making himself the the perfect food source for his beloved sibling. Though nefarious researchers and doctors are studying their every move, Utsutsu will do whatever he can to keep the pupa inside of his sister from emerging and killing them all.

Exhibit #1 on why horror genre and short episode format can't mix if you try to keep a fluid plotline. I'm sorry, Studio Deen, but this... this was awful. Stick to making countries into cute boys, mmk? Story: A brother and sister get infected, she turns cannibal, he becomes the feast. I mean, that premise sounds really interesting. Unfortunately, it's done in such a way that it's bland, uninteresting, and mildly irritating. For one, the brother-sister dynamic is near incestuous, but not enough to warrant a tag. There's a creepy scientist lady who is given a storyline that ends up going nowhere. And for the most part, it's just repeated scenes of the sister eating while chanting "brother" over... and over... and over. Bleh Animation: Here's one of the weirdest things about this anime. You'd expect sharp, dark lines from horror. Or maybe contrasting colors? Something jarring to put you on edge? No. This anime goes for muted lines and soft colors. It's almost dream-like in it's animation style most of the time. Which is rather odd given the genre it is trying to portray.  I'm serious. Did this start off as soft-core hentai and an exec at Studio Deen went "No, make it horror!" And they just used the same frames. Cause that's what it feels like... Sound: If I have to hear any more poorly done bite sounds and her chanting "brother" one more time... Character: She's hungry, he's self-sacrficing. Seriously. They have the emotional depth of a kiddie pool. I would forgive the poor animation, the poor plotline, if they made this an emotional trauma piece about how she doesn't want to see her brother as food. But no, there is none of this. Just nothing.  Should you watch this? No.  This anime brought to you by DAMC.

This anime HAD a great potential but lacked a story and seems to go no where... If u can describe an anime, tell us everything about it in 5 sentences or less that means IT A HORRIBLE ANIME Anime-planet described it as: "When Utsutsu and Yume were young, they were physically and emotionally abused by their sadistic father; and now that they’re older, Utsutsu swears above all else that he’ll protect his little sister at any cost. So when the girl is infected with the mysterious Pupa virus, causing her to turn into a terrifying monster that eats anything around her, the boy does the only thing he can: he offers his sister his body and flesh to consume. He won’t die, for Utsutsu was also infected with the virus, giving his body the superhuman ability to regenerate from any wound, and making himself the the perfect food source for his beloved sibling. Though nefarious researchers and doctors are studying their every move, Utsutsu will do whatever he can to keep the pupa inside of his sister from emerging and killing them all." Well guest what I can TELL you the anime in few less words... Main characters Utsutsu and Yume has a child abusive father (doesn't matter to the story). Their mother had Yume, younger sister, but she caught a unexplainable virus called Pupa. Yume's virus makes her have monster like power, grow tentacles and regen body/organ in extreme speed; however, she will have to consume human. She was saved because her brother later on also caught the virus, but for him he only get the power to regen organs/skin/body part(the sister's food infinite food source), together they live on, WITHOUT A FREAKING STORY OR PLOT OR GOAL OR POINT OR ENDING. This anime has no point or ending What are they going to do as monsters? Are they just going to survive, and Yume will just eat her brother to live on? Will government try to kill them? Will they find a cure for Pupa? Why does Yume's monster form looks like a pink godzilla from the 1950s? Is this an anime?
