Jitsu wa Watashi wa 28 March 2016

2015 modern humour, shounen manga adaptation in 13 episodes: AniDB, vt "My Monster Secret". Kuromine "Leaky Bucket" Asahi is unable to keep a secret; when he goes to confess his love to the girl of his dreams, she turns out to be a vampire. But she'll be forced to leave school if the secret gets out…

That's the setup, but not the main premise, which is much more of a traditional harem show. Another classmate is an alien; another isn't anything weird in herself, but is a snoopy school reporter with possessed spectacles; another is a werewolf who shifts between big hairy scary guy and vamping young woman.

In fact this is primarily a love story between Kuromine and Shiragami the clueless vampire, with Aizawa the alien mostly present as a spoiler and the others there as distractions. It's not a bad love story, but it doesn't really go anywhere much; with 15 volumes of the manga (and it's still being published), there was clearly never going to be much by way of conclusion here.

Pleasant but eminently forgettable. No plans for a sequel have been announced.
