    Episode 1

    To sing, or not to sing? That is the question.

    And so, it begins with the pretty vampire boy singers getting introduced, and then there's singing. And more singing, and a lot more after that. Ange is a big Guil fan, and he ends up meeting him where he would sing and get accepted by the red moon where it is revealed that he's actually a half-vampire. The episode ends with a big decision as it's up to Ange to see if he wants to sing or not. Pretty much this is going to be a big, long advertisement for the music, and while the music is great, there's just nothing else that's worthwhile in this show. I came in not really expecting much seeing that Hypnosis Mic was a dumpster fire of a show, and this kind of collaboration between Aniplex and A-1 feels like the same thing, though at least they did a nice job with the music. Nevertheless, this show just doesn't look like it will be for me.

    As always, I'll give this show a fair trial, but it looks like my jail sentence in this prison will be a short one seeing that I'm not part of the target audience for something like this.

      Episode 2

      Bad moon rising.

      So after a first episode that was almost nonstop singing, this one is all story with no singing, so at least something is going on. It's all info dumping here as Ange's acceptance by the moon was quite a shock, and being a half-vampire means he's prone to breaking some sacred rules, and he inadvertently did it that they are lucky that it didn't lead to any dire consequences. So in the end, Ange decides to sing, and pretty much had no other choice but to say yes. At least this show is going somewhere and it has some semblance of a story unlike with Hypnosis Mic, but the story so far is something I couldn't really care less about.
