“The fourth primogenitor” – That’s the world’s strongest vampire that should only exist in legends. Accompanied even by twelve Kenjuu and spreading calamity, this phantom vampire appeared in Japan.

For the observation and obliteration of this “fourth primogenitor”, the government and Lion King decided to dispatch an attack mage referred as a “swords shaman”. However, for some reason, the one chosen for the observation was an apprentice “swords shaman” girl, Himeragi Yukina.

Wielding the strongest anti-primogenitor spirit spear, Yukina arrived at Demon Sanctuary, “Itogami City”. What was the true identity of the “fourth primogenitor”, Akatsuki Kojou, she encountered over there!?

Let's just say the protagonist is hard to bear. And others too.
For example, in volume 2 I seriously raged when... (mild spoiler)

Kojou apologizes for involving Yukina in the Armed Apostle accident, and expressed his gratitude to her for her help. I have three things to say.

First, don't speak as if you somehow caused the accident. You are just a random victim. Actually, if I had to be perfectly objective, isn't Yukina the one who worsened the accident, unvoluntarily helping the antagonist?

Second, don't speak as if she involved herself in the accident because of you. Instead, she one sidedly decided to involve herself even though you wanted no part of it.

Thirdly, don't make it look like she is the one who helped you. Instead, she guilt trapped you into helping her. She should be thanking you.


More generally... It seems like the author is trying to make characters as unrelatable and unreasonable as possible. Especially Sayaka : (not a spoiler but a rant explaining how much I hate this character) :


I really dare the author to properly explain her thought process without making her look like a mentally ill person fit for a mental asylum. And it makes me hate all other characters for forgiving her that easily. Yes, she is cute, so what? In my eyes, she is a much more dangerous individual (and much more of a criminal) than the main antagonist of volume 1 (mentally unstable people with lots of power are generally dangerous and tends to do crimes).


I mean, in this kind of novel, when you feel more respect and interest for the main antagonist of the volume than the newly introduced heroine (instead hating her), you just know there is something wrong. Actually, on that note : while most characters are awful, antagonist are pretty good.

At this point, the author would have done better making his character follow cliche. Because while making original characters is obviously great, if they don't make any sense what's the point? <<less

Our lovely lovely vampire harem.. No the girls are not the vampire this time.. :O but our MC yey!
We follow our MC in a nicely thought out world with supernatural happenings.. The plot is interesting with it kind of changing each volume. I do recommend reading this once the english release catchs up :3
