I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing Strawberry Seafoam after which interviewing Bryan final yr. Vampire Magicka is simply as enjoyable and beautiful. I discover myself smiling whereas studying as a result of the characters, particularly Visare, are lovable. The dynamics between Visare and Viorica impress me. The flashbacks present a posh angle in a number of panels. The thrilling science fantasy and Gothic horror parts and intelligent characterization make this greater than value studying.

Magical woman anime followers will acknowledge the style’s tropes and references, together with nods to Sailor Moon. The science fantasy parts reference Frankenstein. From the primary three obtainable episodes, I do know that Visare’s narrative arc will probably be compelling. I can’t wait to see the place Visare goes subsequent and the longer term obstacles he’ll face. Plus, Draga the bat has already stolen my coronary heart.
