by Dr. Daedaluson December 10, 2008
For those coming in late, here’s the Cliff’s Notes version of the vampire-comedy Karin: The title character is a reverse vampire, meaning that instead of sucking blood, she builds up excesses of it, which she must pass on to someone else via a bite before it starts geysering out of her.
