Welcome to the Strike the Blood discussion thread.
Come here to chat about the latest episodes, the characters, plot, or the series in general.

Genre: Romance, Action, Fantasy

Produced by: Silver Link/Connect

Plot: The school action fantasy story of Strike the Blood revolves around Kojou Akatsuki, a boy deemed the world's most powerful vampire (once thought to only exist in legend and lore), and Yukina Hirameki, a girl entrusted with watching over the vampire and if needed, hunting him down.

Wiki Section

Main Pages: Light Novel | Manga | Anime | Franchise | Characters

To-Do List

Here's a list of things we want to do in the wiki, why not help cross some of them off? Also feel free to make suggestions.

  • Create character pages.
  • Add images and summaries to episode pages.

Important Pages

When editing the wiki (particularly episode and volume pages) it's helpful to use this section as a reference guide.

Locations
When adding locations, don't forget to add parent locations. For example, when adding Japan to an episode or volume, Earth should also be added. Locations appearing in flashback sequences generally don't count.

Recurring Pages: ?

Objects
Objects should be specific rather than general, like Natsu's Scarf instead of just Scarf or Purgatory Armor instead of Plate Armor. General objects are being removed from the wiki.

Recurring Objects: ?

Concepts

Common: Humans, Flashback, Fan Service,

Specific: None so far

@Acura_Max:

I'll add them. Though, it seems redundant since we post trailers in the comments. On second thought, let's leave them until one of the vids get pulled off by Youtube.

Between this and Kill La Kill this season is great for terrible 90's assed names of Anime.

Watched the first episode. I'm somewhat interested in this show.

What I didn't expect was this:

Yukina Hirameki remind me of Asuna when she smiled endearingly at one point. I feel like she is going to fill out that Moe warrior archetype. I could be wrong.

The show is pretty generic, but I'm curious about Koujo's past.

@takashichea: We can go ahead and add Yukina to the Cute Bruiser listXD

Anyway as for the show itself I agree with Taka it's pretty run of the mill anime stuff we have seen countless times over the years.Might watch the next episode to see if anyhthing really picks up. If not I'll probably drop this one.

@Sonata:

Oh yeah! :) I'll add her in a moment if I can get a good profile shot of her. I'm still working on that female wrestling anime series with Bigz.

I have a few quesstions .

1st why is his hair in the posters blackish but we never see him in the series with black hair?

2nd How many shows do you think was drawn from for this?I can see Dance in the Vampire Bund for world build a bit.But i cant lace what else it draws from an yet it seems familar .

The second episode had a better flow than the 1st .But it seems famllar still.

@Marshal Victory:

Good eye. I didn't notice it, but I assumed it was when Kojo was a normal human before he met the 4th progenitor.

@takashichea: Ya all 4 of my eyes are poor atm hehe.So need new glasses.But reason it stood out to me was he has a longer flashback in the 2nd episode an his hairs not black.Maybe he will have black hair when he fully awakens ?

Also im ading a book mark for the #anime discussions .I could not find it threw the forum drop down menu .An if i just hit the forums button i dont see it.

Well from partial fan service to full on fan service ,shows just keeps evolving. Its not a bad show at all just feels like its off a step here an there.Think your suposed to feel sorry for Kojō Akatsuki when hes in a embarrising situation or being punished for something.But it doesnt play that way with me . He at times is too dense to be sympatic to.Plus its a streach playing the badass of the vampires to swing back to guilible victem of circumstance.

I do like how they are doing the story archs tho as titeld chapers an numbered.Animation still holds up to .

@Marshal Victory:

The episode naming reminds me of Sunday Without God. I don't feel anything for this series. I'm just watching it without any attachment like Diabolik Lovers. I agree with Kojo being dense especially with Asagi who is definitely in love with him. I guess I'll hang in there to see what develops. Chances are it's going to be Yukina because of her moe appeal.

The fan service scene is pretty cliche.

@takashichea: yeah that sceen kinda sealed the deal for me that hes clueless an not worthy of what sympathy their could be .To me the sceen lacks comedy because hes dense.The normal embaresment comedy we see in harems/ecchi anime is not there.Heck he doesnt even pull off scoundel/perv here either as he stands an talks to her.

Thats becomeing a pev with this show for me.Rest of the show is ok its layered fairly well.

@takashichea:

Haven't seen plaid undies. Her pink panties wasn't that sexy or unusual.

Hmm shows starting to pick up a bit.Liking it a bit more now after 6.Even tho main lead is dense it still has some good moments.

@takashichea: i looked up

http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/fan+service

mostly because seems alot of people have alot of difrrent views on what it is.I agree their is fan service in this show an it is totaly cliche.But just enuff cliche makes something cheesy ! An some times that turns into something good.If you took out the cliche fan service in this it probly would be even more dry as a story.Episode 6 helps a bit with this but adds another cliche ! Not joking.

Well episode 7 picks up the pace a bit.Show seems to be geting a little better as it goes.Tho i wil admit its the weekest of the "fan service" like shows this season.
