Cute vampire anime!

"I technically don't own this DVD, but I have already watched the entire series, via YOUTUBE. ^^;
This anime is about a young girl named Karin, who seems like a normal girl. However, she is a vampire, and has to obviously keep it secret. However, even as a vampire she isn't normal; for some reason, she has spontaneous nose bleeds that make a huge mess, which isn't normal for a vampire. She also sleeps at night and functions during the day, which is another unique trait for a vampire [she can also stand sunlight].
Her life is fine until a new boy named Usui Kenta appears into her life. He accidentally witnesses one of her horrific nose bleeds, then catches her in the act of sucking blood. It is then, he finds out she is a vampire. Good thing this brings them closer together.
This anime is VERY cute, and is one of my all time favorites. :D Go buy it if you have the chance! If you can't, just watch it on YOUTUBE. You won't be disappointed."
Cute Series, Horrible Dub

"This series looked interesting, so I threw it into my NetFlix queue. I watched the first two episodes of the dub and spent most of the time cringing. I'm not sure who is to blame, be it the voice director or the actors themselves, but the English cast does a horrible job. I nearly sent the series back, but then decided to first try watching the Japanese version with English subtitles.
It completely changed my view of the show, the characters had more personality and didn't sound as cliche. Anyone who likes off-beat romance and comedy with a slight horror twist should definitely check this series out, just make certain you set the audio track to Japanese first."
CUTE VAMP A WINNER

"WELL I PICKED UP KARIN SINCE I READ THE CHIBI VAMPIRE MANGA (UP TO 4 WITH THE 2 NOVELLAS) SO I WAS GOING INTO THIS WITH A BIT OF EXCITEMENT....AFTER ALL WE NEEDED A FUN VAMPIRE STORY (THOUGH I STILL SAY THE ORIGINAL VAMPIRE HUNTER D IS THE BEST ANIMATED VAMPIRE MOVIES OF ALL).
ALL KARIN WANTS IS TO BE A SOMEWHAT NORMAL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT....WHICH IS A LITTLE DIFFICULT SINCE SHE BELONGS TO A FAMILY OF VAMPIRES. BUT UNLIKE HER FAMILY (HER MOTHER, FATHER, OLDER BROTHER, AND YOUNGER SISTER (WHO IS NOT SHOWING HER VAMP SIDE JUST YET)) SHE DOES NOT SUCK BLOOD, BUT GIVES IT TO HER VICTIMS IN ORDER TO KEEP HER BLOOD LEVELS STABLE...BECAUSE IF SHE DOES NOT IT TENDS TO GIVE HER REALLY VIOLENT NOSEBLEEDS. BECAUSE OF THIS SHE IS ACTUALLY A DAY PERSON, LOVES GARLIC, AND ENJOYS SWIMMING. HOWEVER THIS ALL CHANGES WITH A NEW TRANSFER STUDENT JOINS HER CLASS...KENTA USUI, A YOUNG MAN WITH UNUSAL EYES. EVERY TIME SHE GETS CLOSE TO HIM, HER BLOOD GOES INTO OVERDRIVE AND FORCES HER TO FIND A VICTIM, OR GUSH ALL OVER THE PLACE. AND THEN THINGS GET WORSE WHEN HE CATCHES HER BITING SOMEONE AND DISCOVERS HER VAMPIRIC SECRET. WILL SHE EVER ENJOY A NORMAL EXISTANCE? WHAT IS THE REAL CONNECTION BETWEEN HER AND HIM? AND WHAT IS WITH THAT DOLL BUJE (PRONUNCED BOOGIE)THAT IS ALWAYS WITH HER SISTER?
OVERALL I WAS PLEASED WITH HOW THIS SERIES IS STARTING, THE ONLY TWO STICKING POINTS WAS SLIGHT DUBBING ISSUES AND THE SLOW STORY DEVELOPMENT. BUT THIS IS A STORY THAT ANYONE WOULD ENJOY WHO ARE LOOKING FOR A LITTLE LIGHT HUMOR AND A BIT OF ROMANCE......SEE YOU NEXT DISC....."
