Striking a first impression would raise my blood: Strike the blood II


Hey up peeps. So another first impression post. If you don’t know or haven’t seen. Strike the blood first aired in 2013.

It follows 16-year-old Kojou “Not sparkly Edward Cullen” Akatsuki, the fourth vampire progenitor. And one of the strongest around. He has 12 familiars, however to unlock them he has to suck the blood of female virgins. Okay that’s a slight exaggeration. However he wasn’t a vampire to begin with, Avrora Florestina his predecessor inserted her spirit in to him.

naturally being a vampire he inherits all the abilities that all other vampires have. Minus being affected by sunlight. He is observed by a girl named Yukina Himeragi; a sword shaman. She is a member of the lion king organisation. Yes, you read that correctly. A secret organisation that keeps tabs on Kojou and keeps the peace between humans and other supernatural beings. Along the way the duo face other supernatural beings and meeting other members of the lion-king organisation. Namely Kirasaka Sayaka. A tsun. We also have Kojou and Himeragi school friends Matoki Yaze and Asagi Aiba. Asagi having strong feelings for Kojou. In fact it isn’t just her.

Every or most of the female characters all develop strong attachments or feelings for our vampire hero. The lucky sod just opens his crummy mouth. And boom, the girls are all dropping their clothes for him. Yes this anime is in fact ecchi and has plenty of fanservice shots. Especially on Yukina’ panties.

Now the above details the entire synopsis of the show. The show ended in 2014. Only having a single season. You’re probably wondering why the numeral two is there. Well this isn’t actually a second season. It’s 8 OVA’ (pretty much like Arslan Senki fuujin ranbu). The first three OVAs focus on the shadow of a sword shaman Rikujin (the header image is her). And how the duo of Yukina and Kojou will deal with the legendary leviathan.

The characters are consistent. That I will say is a positive. In other words, zero development in terms of characters.

 the impression of this anime left on me:


Overall impression: above average

  1. A great humorous post. I guess I’m not the only one who loved your remark “Not Sparkly Edward Cullen” XD. I was surprised on seeing the title and thought that it had a second season, however, I haven’t checked out the OVA’s so I should thank you for filling me into this detail.

  2. I remembered watching this series way back 2014 because I like vampires stories but unfortunately I didn’t finish. It’s as you said. The characters lacked development. Also, for some reason, I don’t find the main character that convincing. LOL!

    Anyway, the alternatives you offered were really nice. Hellsing is a real badass!

    1. Thanks :D. Yeah at least the series is consistent in its character development, that being none. You can finish it anytime xDD. There is a OVA movie as well. Which went unnoticed.
