Karin is a vampire anime. The 2 main characters are Karan Maaka and kenta Usui.
karin Maaka is a 16-year-old "blood-producing" vampire whose body produces too much
blood. As such, she does not suck blood from her "victims"; rather, she injects her
surplus blood into them. This has the effect of making her victims very lively and
positive. To make matters worse, her blood levels increase dramatically whenever she
senses misfortune in those around her, or if she gets embarrassed about something.
This results in frequent and excessively overwhelming nosebleeds, followed by anemic
symptoms such as being lightheaded, which cause frequent visits to the school nurse's
office so she can rest.
Kenta Usui is a student that transferred to Karin's high school. He is also her
workmate. Kenta is the only human that knows of Karin's vampiric nature. He learned
what she was after witnessing her biting three victims, one of which was his own
mother. He has promised to keep this knowledge a secret. As his unhappiness causes
Karin's blood to rapidly increase, she has taken it upon herself to cheer him up by
making him a bento every day. He could not afford to buy his own lunch and is
therefore grateful to her.
