Strike the Blood – Gadget Anime Review
The curtain rises on a story involving the strongest vampire and a young sword shaman!!
The ‘fourth progenitor’ should be something that is just legend, the strongest vampire. Commanding 12 familiars and said to spread disaster wherever they walk, the legendary vampire is now said to have appeared in Japan. In order to observe and eliminate this ‘fourth progenitor,’ the government-run Lion King Organization has sent a sword shaman. However, the chosen sword shaman was Yukina Himeragi, a young apprentice. Carrying the strongest weapon available, she arrives in the Demon District, Itogami city. What is the true identity of the fourth progenitor, Akatsuki Koujou, that she encounters there!?

When you just write that the main character gets a bloody nose when he gets excited, the first thought is a slightly-erotic romantic comedy, but this actually seems like a superpower battle anime. The story and characters are a bit cliche so you can basically get an idea just by reading the synopsis. I guess that wasn’t much of a review. It’s a very average anime, and any development in the story will probably be average. In the best and worst ways this anime won’t be very different from your expectations, so if you like what you see in the first episode you should watch it.
I can’t be the only one who remembers Tsukihime when hearing about vampires and ‘progenitors!’ The main character isn’t just any vampire, but the ‘fourth progenitor.’ It seems like a standard battle anime, with vampires, beast-people, fairies, and half-demons living in a city. There are lots of fancy sounding names for everything…
The heroine is super cute, especially her reaction to having her underwear seen…and the main character gets a vampiric urge whenever he gets aroused…must be tough for a highschool boy. If you are like me and enjoy superpower chuunibyou type anime, you will enjoy this!
Vampires seem to be the trend now. This time, normal people can become vampires. It’s a bit fuzzy exactly how he lost his memory and became a vampire, but it seems as if he was given this power. I’m a bit curious about what the progenitors are, but even more than that the girls are cute. Not because she’s a middle school girl, or because you see her underwear, but she is charismatic. Not just that she has potential, she’s just…good. I will save up my money in anticipation of a Yukina Himeragi-scented wallet.

I couldn’t help but think that I had seen something similar before. I can’t quite understand what all the special words and names are, so I wish they would put some more explanation into it. If you haven’t read the original work its hard to follow…
Looks like the worked hard on the panties, and the art is very pretty overall so I would recommend it if you like the setting.
From old to new, I’m watching all kinds of anime. Robot, special powers, love, slice-of-life, I will eat anything! My favorites are “Saint Seiya,” “Penguindrum,” and “Pani Poni dash!”
I’m an anime otaku gangster hiding in the dark and damp corners of the industry and doing my thing!
I watch a lot of anime that is popular online.
