Plot : Komori Yui is a positive-thinking girl who nevertheless is troubled by seeing spirits and experiencing poltergeist phenomena. In her second year in high school, she transfers to a new school—a night school for entertainers and celebrities—due to her father's work. There are rumours that vampires exist among the student body, and Yui ends up living with the six sadistic Sakamaki vampire brothers. (Source: ANN)

Our Review : This is literally the worst anime I have ever seen and I beg you all to avoid it. Don't even try it because you are intrigued. Even for reverse harems, this is bad. For a genre steeped in rape imagery and abuse of females, this is extreme.

The story of this anime is pretty simple, in that it's a rape story. Please, don't even try to deny it. A girl arrives at a house (under pretty mysterious circumstances) and literally, within about 30 seconds of arriving, is pinned under a seriously creepy guy that insists that he wants to take her. Lo and behold, there's not just one creepy rapist here, but a whole set of them. And she can't leave at all, lest they kill her - they tell her this straight to her face when she tries to.

Even if you're into noncon, this anime is just... awful. Even despite the disgusting themes, the story's just dull. There isn't really much of a plot outside of the first episode, with little else happening but the girl being thrown from guy to guy, bitten, and then having the guys argue about how she "belongs" to each of them. There's no humour, no real entertainment value, and the bad attempts at plot (in the forms of vague 'backstory' flashbacks) are enough to send anyone to sleep.

And the characters, oh gosh, the characters. They're irritatingly abusive to the lengths of being one dimensional archetypes. They have no personality beyond the different approaches they have to making the female lead's life hell. The girl herself is ok though, considering she's just a blank slate for the audience to project themselves onto (although it's anyone's guess as to why you'd ever want to be in her shoes, unless perhaps being raped and murdered by a group of bishie weirdos is the very last thing on your bucket list), but she really can't save this fuckfest of awful characters.

The art style's nothing special either. Some of the character designs are ok, but there are odd aspects like character's eyes being shown through their hair... repeatedly. Even if this is some sort of new vampire power they've added, it just looks dumb. The animation in general feels somewhat off anyway, even if the backgrounds are very beautiful. It's sorta mediocre besides that, though. The voice acting and music, similarly, is little worth talking about. It's hard to tell the brothers apart when their same-face incarnations aren't in shot and I often have to just skip through the OP and ED because they're just so dull.

I don't think anyone could honestly enjoy this anime. I've counted instances of attempted rape, cutting her off from the outside world, kidnap and holding her against her will, controlling her, misogyny and victim blaming, enslaving her, actual rape, physical and verbal abuse, and even the extent of an attempted murder in these first few episodes alone. It's got shoddy art, mediocre music, and appalling characters. It's not even so bad it's good - it's really, truly, just bad. Horrifically bad.
