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.
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 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 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.
