Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san Episode 1: Vampire KinMosa

The Yuritastic Autumn many Nation members were super excited for had officially begun with the adorable vampire leading the march for gay glory. Let’s find out if she’s worth following.

Akari meets Sophie Twilight.

We star the episode with our adorable heroine Akari walking in a forest at night. She’s looking for a certain house. According to an urban legend a girl that looked like a living doll was seen there and Akari wanted to see for herself. She got lost. Fortunately she was approached by a beautiful silver haired girl who casually introduced herself as a vampire.

Sophie helped her out by giving her a ride home but she instead wanted to visit the home of legend.

At Sophie’s house she asked Akari whether she came went to the forest for her house to which she said…”I heard about the doll-girl so I came to capture her and take her home with me.”

Sophie was like “But I’m a vampire”. Akari was like “I love dolls. You’re so beautiful, like a living doll. Won’t you let me play with you?” Sophie was obviously a bit weirded out.

When Akari said it was getting late Sophie invited her to dinner. Naturally Akari offered her neck. She was like “Bon apetit Sophie.”, again weirding out the vampire.

For a while Akari visited Sophie, much to her annoyance. During that time Akari asked vampire related questions and saw that she acted more like an average NEET human than like vampires in Western media. One of my favorite scenes in the episode involved the coffin. I like those jokes.

Another fun joke involved Akari asking Sophie about her vampire strength. Sophie hoped seeing her raw power would scare Akari away. At first it seemed like it worked. Didn’t take long at all for Sophie to feel lonely. The payoff to the joke was a classic.

One day at school Akari told her posse about her new friend but not that she’s a vampire girl. The orange haired girl’s reaction is worth taking notice of. Point of the scene was the girls giving her the idea to move in with Sophie.

Naturally Sophie asked her if it was okay with her parents, which it was, leading to her wondering whether they’re weirdos like their daughter.

Akari tried looking for ways to be useful to Sophie and be deemed worthy of living with her. There wasn’t much. Then Akari offered to cook for her. While Sophie didn’t eat much she was gain. Cue the “cutting my finger” trope.

Akari Vision 2.jpg

Akari Vision 2. Okay this one actually happened.

Akari was like “Give me a sec and I’ll offer you some more”.

After some more fun Sophie said “It’s time to go home”. Akari of course was sad but then Sophie finished “…so you can properly pack”. Akari was elated but asked why as she wasn’t very useful. Sophie was like “Because having you around might be…fun”.

Akari Vision 3.

Akari was like “YUSH! I’m on the True End route BABEH!”

Be sure to stick around after the ED for an explanation of why Sophie can’t go to school with Akari.

While Zombieland Saga was a welcome surprise Vampire KinMosa being awesome was a given. Of course it was a great premiere!

By the way: No manga spoilers whatsoever about the orange haired girl who most likely wants to eat Akari’s taco or the other vampire who will debut later.

    Akari-vision looks like a very relatable phenomenon to me. As in, like every anime I watch. Reminds me of Chitose from Yuru Yuri, but less blood (surprisingly, given the premise of the show). I will definitely be giving this one a go.

    And what’s this about taco-eating orange-haired girls?? You manga readers are always such teases!

    Oh joy, the OP is already enough for me to know what’s up ahead and boy, it’s delicious.

    Looks like Gabriel Tenma stopped being a loli angel to transform into a loli vampire, she even keeps that “Umu” line. Also Akari-chan, please refrain from doing inappropriate activities with Sophie…..for now, let it warm up first. BUT I still want Hinata to have a shot with Akarin though.

    Sooooo in just Friday, we’ll get this anime, Bloom Into You and Uchi no Maid ga Uzasugiru rubs hands. Hoooooo, this will get spicy

    This was a good start to the series. It really does feel like KinMosa, but with vampires.

    It’s pretty obvious Akari is gay. There’s no subtext about it. Although, considering this is just a cute girl slice of life series, it probably won’t actually go anywhere.

    I found it hilarious that Sophie, a vampire, was terrified of Akari, an ordinary human.

    Still a better love story then Twilight…
    Which is particularly ironic, given that the MC vampires last name is Twilight.

    I going to need to take extra day off on friday to be able to see all these shows.

    So far I can put this show on the top spot, this is a nice comedy and I will keep this one for last, like the beach volleyball, something to cheer me up, if some of the other shows turns into bigger drama then expected.

    P.S. Hilarious parents 🙂

  8. Of all the shows airing today, this one was my favorite, that OP sold me on this show so hard. If all the episodes can be as good as this one, it’ll be hard for anything this season to surpass this show.

    Interesante… esta protagonista es mucho mejor de lo que esperaba, apenas comenzó a convivir con su crush y ya quiere matrimonio, agregada a la agenda.

    Los vampiros… he aquí una veta inmensa sin explotar por parte de los autores yuri, es como si Texaco tuviera un bolsón de petroleo y decide no explotarlo porque ese día los ingenieros estaban de mal humor. Como sería mi serie yuri ideal con vampiresas:

    Chica “x” asiste a una escuela mixta; descubre que es descendiente de vampiros; en su intento de dominar sus poderes lo primero que hace es beber la sangre de una niña encontrando el mejor sabor de su vida; un “Sr. Murciélago” la invita a un torneo misterioso donde podrá conocer su origen, en su primer combate conoce a una vampiresa aristocrática de sangre pura que se convierte en su mentora; con el paso de los días “chica X se convierte en LA chica (me la imagino como Alushe de Night of Azure 2)”; la chica mordida más otras (la tsundere, la tímida, la kaichou, la gyaru) empiezan a sentir curiosidad por nuestra protagonista; llega un Shirou 2.0 a su escuela quiere matarla porque es un “aliado de la justicia”, nuestra “Alushe” se opone y a la par que va ganando combates va ganando corazones de niñas, su mentora trata de convencerla de tener un harem tal y como ella tiene uno, encuentra su origen, por “accidente” la prometida producto de un matrimonio arreglado de Shirou 2.0 conoce y se siente atraída por nuestra MC; el torneo se pone más agresivo y complejo; las chicas que “Alushe” conoció se han enamorado y comienzan los conflictos, el Sr. Murciélago hace y deshace reglas; nuestra MC tuvo que matar; Shirou 2.0 descubre que su prometida la engaña con nuestra protagonista y se lo toma muy pero muy personal. Nuestra mentora convence a las chicas de que para evitar conflictos y dramas innecesarios “Alushe” debe aceptar a todas y formar un harem, Alushe se mantiene escéptica porque no es lo que parece, pero acepta cuando sus chicas se involucran por accidente. Descubre su origen, pelea contra Shirou 2.0 dejándolo invalido, solo y amargado, vence al final boss (inserte uno aquí) y gana el torneo, “Alushe” se convierte en reina de los vampiros (con su correspondiente harem), su mentora en su primera ministra (con un harem más nutrido) convierten a la escuela mixta en una All—girl y el lugar ahora es su coto de caza y el Sr. Murciélago satisfecho desea que el siguiente torneo sea igual o más interesante. FIN

    Espero que le guste mi idea.

    Hilarious, and more yuri than I expected. They’re already moving in together!

    Some school rules are just pointless.

    Also nothing wrong with having a body pillow. (Looks over to the body pillow on bed.) Nothing wrong at all.

    This first ep was really cute, I enjoyed it quite a lot. Not even being subtle with the yuri either. So much hand holding and kissing in the OP. I hope that’s a taste of what’s to come!

    I like how casual Sophie was when she told Akari that she’s a vampire. If that happened to me I’d have trouble believing it. And it seems Akari’s more of a threat than Sophie.

    Must be nice to have parents like Akari’s.

    I like that orange haired girl, she’s the type of friend that I’d like to watch horror movies with that I’m scared of so I can laugh at her being more scared than me and forget about being scared myself LOL 😛

    Anyway, Akari already expected them to get married and Sophie said it’s too big of a leap but she didn’t reject the idea 😀 But it’s silly because it’s just like “Marriage? That’s too fast! We just met. Let’s live together first.” LOL 😀

    Can’t wait for next week.

    So cute and sexy, I love these girls 🙂 It’s so delightful to have stories where a girl is completely lovestruck right from the beginning, all ready to marry her sweetheart. Their knees and elbows are going to be all bruised if they make love in that coffin though…

    I adore the kissing in the OP and the delicious girl triangle. I just hope this show has the courage to pull a “Hina Logi” and actually show a kiss on the lips ^^

    The emotions on Akari’s face when she first meets her dream girl are so precious.

  17. From 0 to Lesbian in no time. I approve greatly.

    So cute and fluffy. And I approve of Sophie’s blood-ordering methods. Reminds me of Angel from Buffy a little with buying it from places. (Though much, much cuter and gayer. Also more internet.)

    I also approve of Akarivision. Though she might want to keep a little self-control, or she might scare Sophie away…but it does look like Sophie is “warming up” to Akari a little already, so that’s good.

    Also…ROAD ROLLER DA! (Now all Sophie needs to do it learn to stop time for small moments at least. Unless…she already knows how…)

    It’s a fun first episode. As expected, Akari fell in love with Sophie after she “rescues” her. Given that Sophie looks like a living doll, there is no wonder.

    I find it funny how Sophie doesn’t follow behavior of normal vampires and bite people. Still, she sparkles in the sunlight. I blame Twilight for that. That said, this show is definitely better than twilight will ever be.

    Kinda miffed that nobody here picked up on that really obvious jojo reference.

    This series is full of cute and funny moments. Akari’s creep factor is stronger than the undead. A vampire, who rarely leaves the house, also being a NEET, is almost too perfect for Sophie.

    She kind of reminds me of Kobayshi-san. Only not as sexy. (can’t beat that Frozen Squid Stare!)

    If this series was interested in romance, Akari might have a chance if she learned to slow down.

    The kid wear’s her heart (and her loins) on her sleeve, so she has some growing up to do.

    The matter-of-fact way all of the vampire stuff is handled is just hilarious.

    Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san, where the hunter becomes the hunted.Will the cute lady of the night come to regret her decision to invite this fearless, love-stricken human girl into her humble abode? Highly doubt it.

    Sophie Twilight seems like a typical vampire name but it sounds awesome to me.

    Sophie’s quite cultured, having various ways she drinks her blood. The way she categorized the different blood types was very funny.

    Sophie has super strength at her disposal. Now she just needs to be able to stop time to be unbeatable!

    Akari’s parents sure are carefree. In fact, it seems like the humans in this show don’t seem all that phased that a vampire walks among them.
