Coming out of the closet!?March 4, 2013
Genre: Fantasy, Action Length: 12 episodes "Nightmares creep in the waking hours as Mina Tepes, childlike Queen of the damned, shockingly appears on live television to announce her plans for a colony where her blood-sucking brethren can live in peace. As pandemonium engulfs the globe, Mina reconnects with a handsome face from her past, Akira, a brooding beast whose link to the queen is both powerful and mysterious. Together, Mina and Akira will bare their fangs and fight against an ancient evil. And though the Queen and her ferocious werewolf minions vow that no human blood will be spilled, there are others of her kind who yearn to sink their teeth into innocent flesh. Can Akira maintain his fleeting link to the realm of the living while battling to protect this ruthless and royal beauty? Only one thing is certain. The world's not ready for her reign." Series was actually pretty good. I remember seeing the series when it arrived in our store over a year ago. I wanted to buy it but being short on cash and after reading only mediocre reviews, I put it off. Watched it in two nights and enjoyed the majority of it. The series feels like it was split into two almost. I liked Akira because he was portrayed as at least not being naive and stupid. He's got determination and a backbone. Mina is...Mina. Gotta love her transformation...Akira will be a lucky man. For the first half of the series, I didn't like her. Seemed like a total witch. She seemed to turn a bit more timid in the 2nd half. Although, anyone would be hard pressed to stay composed with the shame she was put through. And I was routing for Yuki...but she gave up. Figured there would at least be a love triangle but it didn't happen. Graphics were good for the most part. I noticed a left-to-right bar going from top-to-bottom at times which was quite annoying as it slightly blurred what it went over. Probably wouldn't have noticed it if I wasn't watching the subtitles for the last four episodes. It may have been my television, but I haven't seen that with other series before. I enjoyed both the English and Japanese vocals. Japanese Mina sounds more commanding while the English version matches her loli appearance better. Extras were the standard promos, textless songs, and trailers. There was also a 1-12 intermission which is portions of the manga that aren't revealed in the anime with Japanese voicing. I really enjoyed this segment and wish that there was more of this done with other series. Sometimes it can offer insight to what happens in the series that isn't explained. Like the 2nd reviewer, I was a little disappointed that this wasn't the original collector's edition, but for $36, I'm not going to complain too much. Good luck finding the collector's editions over half a year after their release. Most manufacturer's pull them from retailers after a couple months.

Great anime, horrible online serviceJune 12, 2012
Bought this from a link from a dvd sales site, order the limited editions (this specific SKU) but ended up with the combo box edition. Took it back and explained to the CS Rep that this is the wrong item, she took it back and re-ordered what I thought was the correct item. Received the exact same item and not the one I really wanted. I will never order anything from Best Buy online again.

excellent plot for the first episodeNovember 11, 2011
This is an excellent anime but if only there was more episodes in it. But if there was more then it would have to be an entirely new season. I hope that they would decide to make a new season.
