Bloodivores Episode 6


I wonder if the writer’s of Bloodivores are paying attention to their own storyline. Why are the Bloodivore prisoners surprised that someone in the prison is attempting to bite someone else? Why do they exclaim “He’s a Bloodivore”? It all just seems a bit redundant. Not to mention if Mi Liu is into Anji because she looks like his mum then that’s an even worse reason for his obsession than anything I was speculating about.


Okay, those petty complaints aside (petty complaint / fundamental issues with the story) the problem is this episode is not very good. Even compared to the previous not so great episodes, this is not very good. The dialogue is woeful. The animation took a dive to the point where characters aren’t even pretending that their words and mouths are in any way connected and you can cry without any change in your facial expression even as the pitch or your wails changes. And Anji and Mi Liu are outside because somehow while Anji was all crazed from the blood transfusion a hole appeared in the wall, right beside them. That’s fine though because at the end of the episode the rest of the prisoners finally get a door open and run out into the post apocalyptic whatever where they are for some reason. And it isn’t until the end of the episode that we catch up with our detective who is detecting and conveniently stumbling upon a bug in a stuffed toy inside the orphanage. Big surprise that the toy belonged to Anji and we saw it earlier in a flashback during the episode.

This week this show started to border on the almost unwatchably bad. We’re halfway through the 12 episodes but I wonder if I’ll manage to stick it out for another 12 particularly when it doesn’t look like anything is going to get wrapped up in 6 more episodes.

Bloodivores is available on Crunchyroll.

  1. I’m no reviewer, but I know it has to be hard for you to keep from hitting yourself with a pain stick each time you watch. The series is what 6 eps. in? and you don’t know what the writers are going for? I’d drop it fast! 🙂

    1. Tragically I passed my drop point and now natural curiosity will keep me watching unless it truly becomes horrendous rather than just bad.

  2. Nooo, you can’t give up! Though I wouldn’t blame you :p If anything it is funny to read about so look forward to the next one if you hang in there.

  3. What are you talking about? I sob uncontrollably without changing my facial expressions all the time!

    Haven’t been watching this show but I have been loving your commentary on this anime especially this season haha. It seems like it would be so interesting if it was executed well, so it’s sad to see it’s not up to your standards of enjoyable anime.

    1. I think that’s why I’m still watching. The ideas are interesting but they just aren’t coming across very well and that part is only getting worse.

  4. I don’t know about that. I honestly felt this episode was actually pretty good. Yes they left some unanswered questions, yes there were some parts of poor animation but i feel like the story is actually getting somewhere. I think this anime has some scope. This episode was the best (considering how bad the previous episodes were). And hopefully they won’t go any lower.

    1. Glad you enjoyed it. I just feel that after 6 episodes weve maybe covered about 2 in material and it hasn’t been all that compelling given the subject matter.

      1. Agreed. True they haven’t covered much. The anime needs to step up in all aspects. May it be comedy, action and animation. Like i said, the anime has scope but hasn’t proved to be a good one as of yet.
