Saya Otonashi is a seemingly ordinary girl living a mundane life with her adoptive family in Okinawa City. In fact, her only peculiarities are suffering from anemia and being unable to remember any of her life beyond the previous year. However, Saya's forgotten past quickly comes back to haunt her—one night, she is attacked at school by a creature that feeds on human blood. Just when all hope seems lost, a mysterious man named Haji appears and fends off the creature temporarily. But when her rescuer forces her to drink his blood, Saya suddenly enters a trance and slays the monster with ease, using her own blood as a catalyst. Saya then learns of an organization named Red Shield, founded for the sole purpose of defeating the hellish beasts. Now Saya and Haji must work together with Red Shield to fight these fearsome monsters and unlock the secrets to the girl's past.

Anime with a slow start that quickly ramps up both its action and depth to come to an entertaining, fulfilling conclusion.


starts slow but picks up around ep20. Theres a heavy focus on family and has a great female lead. Absolutely worth the watch!


Hagi is baeeee. I had a crush on him that whole year…


That moment when you walk into a room, forgetting why you walked in, then you remember you have to kill your sister.


Haji to the rescue.


Great vampire show that focuses on story and characters over just action. Has a great dub and a really interesting female villain.

The Animal Cannibal

50 episodes but worth it I love the character chemistry and the conclusion was rather nice and solid
