A Dark Rabbit has 7 Lives is a 12 episode Shonen anime with 1 OVA.
The story follows Taito Kurogane, a normal high school guy who's trying to deal with his childhood friend Haruka's feelings for him and other normal high school drama. What he doesn't realize is that the school he goes to isn't normal. It's owned by the military and the student council president, Gekkou, can do magic and Andou Mirai, who everyone thinks is just a weird student, is actually Gekkou's demon familiar. Taito ends up saving Mirai from getting hit by a bus and dies...but doesn't...
After he discovers he's immortal he remembers a vampire named Himea who he made a contract with in childhood. Turns out his memories were sealed away by Gekkou's twin brother Hinata! The secret is that if Taito dies 7 times in 15 minutes, he stays dead. But if the deaths are spaced out, he's practically immortal! More shock and awe and tons of drama insue as Gekkou, Mirai, Taito, Himea, and others team up to save the world? (that's never really clear)
I really enjoyed the show. My only issue is that it really needed a second season because absolutely nothing was clarified. It feels like they left off in the middle of the show. OMG Rave Master ending! But otherwise, it was really good...so much drama! And the OVA was friggin adorable! Body switching...you must watch!
BTW I totally ship TaitoXHimea and GekkouXMirai...just FYI!
There's just so much in this show that never gets explained!!! Argh :(
But I digress...ART!
