Strike the Blood Review
I recently finished this anime and decided to write a bit of a review of it on here. This will be spoiler free so no worries. Beware the comments may contain spoilers.

Plot:

The plot is that the government sends a "sword shaman" (Himeragi Yukina) to be an observer of the Fourth Progenitor (Akatsuki Kojou). An incredibly powerful vampire with powerful familiars (beasts that can be summoned). They go through many events and Kojou works to prove that he's not a villain and Himeragi works to keep him in check.

Animation and Music:

The animation is solid through the entire show. I can't think of a single time where it bothered me. Characters are nice vivid nothing feels clunky or out of place. The music is good I really enjoy the score. However there are times where I felt the music didn't really match what was happening. While the music didn't take anything away, it didn't do much to add to the show either.

Reactions and Overall Thoughts:

I was hooked on the show only two episodes in. The world created is incredibly interesting and I want to know more about it which encourages further viewership. I'm not in love most of the character designs, some are better than others but none are bad (maybe I'm just spoiled by Fairy Tail's great character designs). However, the personalities of them more than make up for it. I'm not the biggest fan of the main heroin's design, but I love her as a character. The show is solid and interesting throughout almost every episode. The last two episodes were a bit lack luster and disappointing, but the 22 before it were all good. The first arc is by far my favorite and literally had me on the edge of my seat.
The final verdict is an 8/10! Which on My Anime List translates to Very Good! Great characters with an incredibly interesting world were enough to give it this score. It suffers from not great character designs and sometimes mediocre plot points. I would love a second season as I want to know more about the characters backgrounds and events that happened in that world in general. It does have some ecchi scenes so be aware. I enjoyed this more than I enjoyed Charlotte which I gave the same score.
Thanks for reading my card and remember to tell me your thoughts on the show down in the comments below! Have a great day! Ja ne
