Strike the Blood has got to be the most anime anime I’ve seen in years. Panty shots. Nosebleeds. Amnesia. Magic powers. Adults hitting on middle school girls. A bad pickup line escalating into a battle with flaming horses. Strike the Blood’s got it all.
I’ll admit, it’s stupid. Really stupid. But I enjoyed this. It was a bit nostalgic for me, a trip to the anime of yesteryear. How long has it been since we’ve had a straight-up panty shot followed by nosebleed combo? Certainly that isn’t as prevalent as it used to be. It made me realize that perhaps anime actually has changed a lot since I first started watching. In a good way, too.
But a trip back in time is nice once in a while.
