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, 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. (Source: Emon via ANN)

Review:

Bloodivores is a Chinese anime. It’s action about vampires or something between those lines. The vampires had special powers, it kinda reminded me of Owari no Seraph. However, I didn’t understand this anime story at all. The more I’ve watched the less sense it made. the anime focused on 3 battles for no reason. I believe that it was building towards something but the anime ended before that happened.

Story wise the anime is about… nothing. The suspense was there but I dont know what for. Animation wise it was good. The music was okay. If you want to watch a Chinese anime, go watch it.

Overall Rate: 6/10

  1. Have to agree. This show kept looking like it was going somewhere but at the end of the day, stuff happened, and it never makes any sense, and then it ends. It was an incredibly waste of time to watch which is a shame because it felt like it should be able to do something with its set up.
