[New][October 2013] Strike the Blood

Summary: The Fourth Primogenitor: The world's strongest vampire that should only exist in legends. Accompanied by twelve Kenjuu and spreading calamity, this phantom vampire appeared in Japan. For the observation and obliteration of this Fourth Primogenitor, the government and Lion King Organization decided to dispatch an attack mage known as a Sword Shaman.

First Impression: Better than the Summary sounds. Original pieces and a solid foundation for an action or drama setting so far.

First Opinion: Vampires have been beaten right back into life. Nobody could just leave the undead rotters alone. Personally, nothing ever will beat Trinity Bloods triune race setup, just for nostalgia reasons, but I still recognize original effort when I see it. So far, the tone for the anime is extraordinarily serious in context. Not only do they get technical enough to layout a vampire drinking his own blood as a placebo for his hunger, but the main heroine actually acknowledges an accidental flashing of her underwear as accidental and doesn't fly off the handle over it. .. After flying off the handle and beating the shit out of a thug that flipped her skirt. So like I said, in context. I'm placing this one on my list of High hopes.
