Vampire Knight: Towards the Dark Side

Currently finished: episode 4

In episode one, it was about half comedy and half slightly dark drama; in episode two, there are still some comedy there; in episode three, it took a sudden turn towards the dark side; by episode four, this series had turned completely dark.

As I see it, this is the true identity of this anime. The comedy in early episodes, are likely just for attracting a larger group of audience by the usual "bait-and-switch" technique.

A word on the plot, (no, I'm not going to spoil anything). The "No.1 good guy" is acting pretty strangely in the latest episode. Somehow it's making me suspect whether he's going to become the ultimate villain. But that just seems all too simple...

New rating (of 5): 4.6 (net gain: +0.1) ~ Dark, dark
