Devils’ Line – Synopsis
Tsukasa, a college student, is rescued from an attack by Anzai. He is one of the many vampires that can blend in with the human population. Anzai, her saviour, is a half-devil who exploits his supernatural gifts as a member of a shadowy police task force that specializes in devil-related crime in Tokyo. As Anzai continues to keep guard over Tsukasa, the two quickly forge a tentative bond—one that Anzai fears will test his iron-clad rule of never drinking human blood…

What We Can Expect
Maybe, this anime might turn out to be an another ‘Twilight’ but the ratings for the manga is decent. Also, I have come across comments that say that the story is good. Furthermore, some people have even compared it with Tokyo Ghoul. Probably, it might not be of that level, but I really hope for this anime to get it right. I am a big fan of vampire drama and I would be glad if this anime succeeds. Another reason to check this out might be for the romance. Since Twilight has left us salty, I wish for this anime to fill that gap. Lastly, if the action is going to be good, this anime would definitely make an interesting watch.
