This series is an easy 4-41/2 stars for creativity,art,storyline and character developement. As I have another production version and not this particular product, I can only recommend the series but I am sure the product offered here should meet or surpass one's expectations.
This story is about a vampire queen looking for a safe homeland for vampires,the "good" ones willing to leave the general population alone,a place for those that chose not to engage in the vampire lifestyle by pulling out their fangs,etc. The adult queen has transformed her body into that of a 10-year-old because if she is of a mature age she must choose one of the three vampire family heads to marry and thus propetuate the vampire royal boodline. As she does not wish to lay down with any of them and wishes to,instead, spend her life with her chosen boyfriend,she refuses to show her mature body,which creates the tension for the storyline.
Her chosen one starts out the series as a teenager in a local highschool that has no memory of his history longer than a year ago. There is,of course, a girl that wishes to care for him,etc., but,unlike too many such storylines, this girl "matures" as the plot thickens, but,to tell more would give too much away. He,on the other hand,take forever to catch on to the multible romantics that begin to swirl around him. In other words,typical male behavior. His role in the storyline,however,is crucial to the plot.
The student body president,a female,is the principle player in a branch story that has a few surprises,especially with most anime series about students usually portraying student leaders as too stiff and unwilling/unable to mature or change. Most would,I think, will find the outcome of this sub-plot both surprising and not entirely unpleasant.

First off, I am female, though the name may suggest otherise XD Second, I am utterly in love with this series. It is heartfelt, beautiful, and witty, just like the main hero and heroine themselves. Now, anyone who says 'Oh, this is just child porn etc... etc...' is only seeing what they want to see. There is absolutely no sex with little kids in this. Sure, there's nudity but only a prude is offended by that. Now, those who have seen this will get on my case for the whole 'no sex with little kids' statement because of the character of Yuzuru but if you watch it you'll see how there is not any actual sex, just an age difference. The plot of the anime varries slightly from the manga but generally follows it very closely after the beginning. If you're looking for a sexy well-rounded series 'Dance in the Vampire Bund' is a must! Both the anime and the manga!!!!

a few quick points to know about this series to help gauge whether you want to watch it.

1. The anime is not the manga. so don't be disappointed. given the ongoing status of the manga series (which is highly entertaining) and the need to adapt for anime format, the story has undergone a few significant changes that give it more of a sense of resolution than the manga does. so know that you are watching a different story (and different style of art as well - looks more like Bakemonogatari than the manga).

2. While not the manga, the anime version is still quite entertaining and enjoyable. Dance, while certainly just another vampire story, does a good job mixing up the modern and the typical cast of mythical characters so that one doesn't feel like this is Blade redux. While not groundbreaking story work, i found myself pretty engrossed. the role of the Werewolves is pretty sweet.

3. as you can tell just from the cover (and more so from the opening credits), Dance plays up the loli theme pretty directly. While tame by other loli standards and not a deal breaker by any means, for those who might be uncomfortable with content of that sort, this would be good to note before investing in watching. I found it tolerable, though i had a few uncomfortable moments. and, generally, the content is pretty edgy. which is fine if you like that, but might be a turn-off if you don't.

overall, i recommend with the above warnings.

Charles Solomon, who wrote the Amazon review is an idiot, and probably too conservative to write and say that this series is a "crashing bore," which HE probably is. There are elements in this series that are anything BUT, and this video is intended for the Mature who are serious about their Anime. The graphics, artwork, story, and characters are memorable, and as usual in Anime, the costumes are colorful, attractive, and stunning--so don't listen to what Charles has to say. I watched this entire series in one sitting because I was gripped! The tale is a love story between a lad and the reigning Vampire Princess, who is a descendant of Vlad Tepes (The Impaler). I am not going to ruin it for you by telling you anything other than the series is worth your time to enjoy, and to discourage you from listening to what Charles Solomon has to say. I will say, however, that there are lesbian, Lolita, smoking, violence and gore, fantastical and mythical, blatant sexuality, and even a Gynecological scene, of all things, but done WELL--themes that make Modern Anime what it is, and why open minded people like myself are constantly searching for in their Anime tastes. Am I a pervert? Maybe. But I know GOOD ANIME from "crashing bores," and I enjoy Mature Anime because I am an ADULT. I hope I have encouraged you to enjoy this series; you will find it enjoyable, I believe, if you approach themes I had mentioned with an adult's open-mindedness. Honestly, if you've got nothing nice to say, don't say it because what you say and write reflects only YOUR biased opinion.

I've heard different things about censorship. I doubt Funamation will censor anything because they never have before(for DVD realeases anyway).Apparently the reason for censorship is because they feel there shouldn't be a nude teen(the main character) because it was deemed obscene. It is terribly... Read More
