Diabolik Lovers Anime Review
When I had first heard about Diabolik Lovers, I was extremely excited. Vampires + Romance… what could possibly go wrong? Unfortunately, this anime did not meet my expectations, and I was a little disturbed by the sadistic behavior of the vampires.
The Plot of Diabolik Lovers
Yui Komori, the female protagonist of Diabolik Lovers, has just moved into the Sakamaki household, a mansion that is currently the home of six vampires. As she gets to know them in ways she probably didn’t want to, she slowly learns about their pasts. This takes up a majority of the episodes. The main plot does not occur until the last few episodes, but the ending hints at a possible second season.
The Characters of Diabolik Lovers
Diabolik Lovers characters are mostly vampires and a few humans as well. Yui Komori is the only human female that lives in the Sakamaki household. The Sakamaki Vampires include Raito, Subaru, Ayato, Shuu, Kanato, and Reiji. Each of the vampires’ personality is different, which calls for some really interesting situations. The main similarity between them all is the fact that they only care about Yui’s blood until the very end of the anime.
The Sakamaki Vampires
The six vampires are very strict and obsessive when it comes to Yui. They wish to be treated with respect, and do not accept it when she refuses to give her blood. Each of them has their own form of “punishment,” which usually involves them taking her blood in painful or uncomfortable ways. They also do not care for it when Yui tries to run away, or when she is seen with another one of them. The most understanding of them is probably Subaru, who offers her a knife and tells her to run away from them when only he is around.
As I said, Diabolik Lovers isn’t at all what I thought it was going to be. If you’re going to watch this, beware for some parts will definitely make you shiver out of discomfort. This is not recommended for the weak ones.
Support Diabolik Lovers.
