"For someone whos usually only a fan of anime series filled with action (violence) and maturity (the occasional adult language) this is one of my guilty little pleasures.
While most of my favorites include Neon Genesis Evangelion, Fullmetal Alchemist, Hellsing, Bleach, Afro Samurai, and Martian Successor Nadesico, this is the rare exception.
As to an actual review, think of your average schoolgirl love story. Now make the main character a vampire. If that sounds like your thing, then go for it.
Wonderful! Full of charm!!

"Karin is one of my favorite animes out there. This anime is full of fun family troubles that will make you laugh all the way to the emotional teenage drama. Beside being a freaky teenage vampire the main character is this story is easy to relate to. If you're into lots of laughs and tons of fun then this anime is the right one for you!"

"This a wonderful series and yet another twist on the vampire myth. For those who do not like subtitles I'm afraid the English dub is net very good with some very poor audio mixing on the English track which makes the voices to loud and background sounds to soft. For those who don't mind subtitles the Japanese language track it brilliant and well worth listening to as it is much better mixed.
In all Karin is an interesting story being part love story be it an awkward one, part comedy, part school drama and part action story but if your looking for horror don't bother, the only scary thing in this series is Kenta's face (Karin's love interest)
I'd certainly recommend giving this series a try as it is certainly entertaining.
For those who insist on watching the English language track I warn you Karin's voice is rather annoying and a very similar to her best friend Maki, its just a pity such a good series has been let down by bad casting and even worse audio mixing."
