Diabolik Lovers Plot
The main heroine, Yui Komori, was just a normal teenage girl in high school until her father, a priest, went to travel overseas for work. As a result, Yui is sent to a new town and arrives alone at a mansion where she was told will be her new home. At the mansion, no-one greets her; however, the door swings open on its own accord. As she explores the area to find someone to escort her in, Yui then enters to find herself all alone, but before she does, she finds a handsome young man sleeping with no heartbeat on a couch. To her shock, he awakens and five other young men gradually appear. Yui soon notices something different about all of them: she discovers that all six of them are brothers, but by three different mothers, and that they were all vampires from the very beginning.
