[Ended] Dance in the Vampire Bund: It continues

Clearly, the story doesn't end here. However, it is still unsure whether the rest of it would be made into another anime.

Using the studio that produced Bakamonogatari for the production of this anime is a great choice. With this topic and theme, I can't think of a better fitting style than this.

As for the story, well, it was somewhat an old concept which keys the whole plot on the relationship between vampires and lycans, but there are some new ideas. Like Bakemonogatari, the story consists of multiple arcs and climaxes. The only problem with this format, is the fact that sometimes the bigger climax is not at the end, rather, it's at the end of a middle arc. When that occurs, it tends to leave audiences in an unsatisfied state because endings tends to feel somewhat too anticlimactic.

Final scoreboard:

Drama: 90 (Great)
Comedy: N/A
Action: 89 (Interesting style)
Art/Animation: 90 (Strange yet interesting)
Sound/Music: 88 (Fitting BGM)
Character: 92 (Well developed)
Plot: 90 (Multiple climaxes)
Ending: 80 (Not really)

Re-watch value: 60 (Still might be somewhat amusing)

Overall: 89 - Very well made

My ranting above maybe a bit misleading, let me make my opinion a bit more clear about this anime by handing it

Anime of the Season for January 2010 Season
