Anime review: Diabolik Lovers

Heh….heh heheheheh. Maybe some of you know this anime. Heh…heheh. It’s my turn to review this I guess.

I have watched a gameplay with English translation on this. I watched some routes, but I think it got blocked by the company or the translator got fed up by people using their work without permission.

Anyways, let’s see about the information on this. It’s originally an otome game. Quite an old one, it’s from 2012, the time I got to know anime. Later on, I came onto otome games haha. Lots of games. The last one of the franchise even got released this year. I can’t believe how big this is. Anyways, that’s my info on this without spoilers. Let’s move on.

Synopsis

At the behest of her father, Yui Komori goes to live in a secluded mansion, home to the six Sakamaki brothers—Shuu, Reiji, Ayato, Kanato, Laito, and Subaru—a family of vampires. Though at first the siblings are confused as to why the girl has arrived, they soon realize that she is to be their new “sacrificial bride,” not to mention their other, more carnal intentions for her. After meeting the brothers, Yui quickly begins to question why her father would have sent her here and why she feels a strange, new pain in her chest. With each brother more sadistic than the last, Yui’s life as a captive takes a harrowing turn in her new home. As her days turn into endless nights, and each brother vows to make her his own, Yui falls deeper and deeper into madness and ecstasy.

Opinion

Okay, so lemme say my own synopsis on this in opinion, since this reflects almost all of my thoughts of this anime basically.

It’s basically about a “pure” girl who becomes more of an M than she already was in the beginning while being tossed around, almsot dying and having some drama going on in her life, for example that her father literally drops her off over there and not caring a bit about her.

I think this makes it pretty clear yes. Anyways, I didn’t really like the whole anime.

The characters are very sadistic, like said in the synopsis. They’re stereotype and um, very strong with personality. And the protag has almost no personality. Just like a little lamb, not knowing anything and going on with everything happening to her even trying to weakly “resist”….. not even trying to correct herself. I like the designs though. My love for ikèmen won’t disappear despite them being like scums. Really pretty and cool.

Character development is prob that she gets more of an M and understanding the brothers for a bit more….. Maybe the brothers tolerate her a bit more?Diabolik Lovers theme 1

The story is vague af. Like, the ending of this is so…..ugh….. It basically is that she accepts everything more willingly I guess and the rest stays the same. Yes, let’s hold in on that. It’s just plain, not really that much in-depth besides a bit of the past of the boys

The music was good though. I like it and I have the music on my phone. Hahah, yes, I like the music of it.

So despite everything, besides character design and music, is shit. Let’s see, I’ll give it a 3/10. 2 for the character designs and 1 for the music. Tbh, I’m making this up on spot about how I grade.

 

And that was it for this week. See you all next time.
