Diabolik Lovers is a series that leaves you at the mercy of sadistic vampires. The project features drama CD's, radio broadcasts on NicoNico Live, and a PSP game by Otomate. The drama CD's are the first to be released together with the radio broadcasts. Originally there were just 6 drama CDs announced, but Rejet managed to squeeze in 3 more CD releases before the game: Diabolik Lovers Versus, where you are left in the hands of two vampires at the same time.

The first Versus CD has Ayato (CV: Midorikawa Hikaru) and Shuu (CV: Toriumi Kousuke). They were having a fight over when you blood tastes better - when you are scared or when you are feeling pleasure. In the end, they decided to test it out on you. That is the explanation you get when you wake up in chains.

Shuu is the first to try out his ideas. He threatens you with all kinds of things, only words at first but a rather familiar knife comes into play as well. To keep things short: Shuu uses the knife to first cut and rip off your clothes, then proceeds threatening and cutting you with it while drinking your blood.

While he still seems to be in the middle of things Ayato interrupts him saying that he took long enough. Shuu thinks your blood is plenty tasty at the moment so he lets Ayato drink it, who complains that it is far to bitter. So now it is Ayato his turn to play with you.

After Shuu his constant threats Ayato almost seems... gentle. (Considering how scared I was of him in his own CD, I never thought I would say that). It doesn't take him long before he is doing some pretty awful things to you as well though, although this time the point is to make you feel pleasure.

Of course Shuu interrupts him again, and after drinking a bit of your blood he complaints that it is now to sweet. The two of them almost start fighting for real when they get distracted by you, so in the end this turns into a blood drinking threesome. Ayato uses the same -probably aphrodisiac- potion on you that he used in his own CD, and by the end you are practically begging them to both drink your blood at the same time.

I forgot how scary and ruthless this series can be. And they seem to have doubled everything from the terror to the ero. Or maybe even tripled it. It is also very long: Almost 75 minutes. Which means that you are being bullied, bitten, threatened, and everything by two vampires for more than an hour. To be honest, it was kind of exhausting to listen to. In the beginning I was still going "should not want" and resisting while listening, but halfway through that became so tiring that I gave up and just listened to whatever they were doing to me.

Just to clarify, there is still no sign of any affection in this CD, and the level of ero is probably equal of even more than in Kannou Jikan. The only difference is that your life is also in danger in this CD. Which reminds me, they were drinking your blood for over an hour, shouldn't you be starting to get blood loss problems by the end?

It certainly lives up to the series its reputation. It is probably up to the listener whether that this do-S zero affection is to your tastes or not. Even if you liked the previous instalments; don't think you can handle this. It will  be more than you expected. Just try not to think to hard about the actual situation that you are in.


  1. 75 minutes??? Are you mean, 1 hour and 05 minutes? I haven't listen this cds...but, I'll listen it later! >.,<

  2. If someone had told me that I would have ended up by liking a series of drama CDs where my life is constantly threatened by a (or in this case even two xD) vampire who's always mean (in so many ways) to me and calls me with awful nicknames (bicchan? Are you calling me a beach? ò.O")... well, I probably wouldn't belive it. And now just look at me x°°D I've just ordered all the dramas, pre-ordered the ones that haven't been realeased yet, plus the limited edition of the game =w="" Oh, and the anthology too xD
    True that I wasn't totally unprepared for such "cares" as I always had a weakness for yangire, yandere etc. but... x°

    Ah! As always thank you for your great job! アンガトゥ――(*´・∀・`)―♪

  3. To be honest, I neva really got interested in Diabolik Lovers. I probably should be since the theme seems to be right up my alley but for some reason, despite the cast and all, it just didn't pique ma interest. I definitely enjoy reading others' thoughts about it but I just couldn't bring maself to listen to this series & I dont know why too. I guess Im one of those people who arent into blood n' stuff.

  4. I SO want to play this game but my Japanese isn't good enough yet (plus I have to keep borrowing a coworker's PSP). I may give in and buy it just to get the extras and play it in a few more months as I learn more.
