Mihai Florescu from Kemono Jihen

Mihai Florescu (voiced in Japanese by Daisuke Ono and in English by Matt Shipman) is a semi-main/semi-secondary character in the anime Kemono Jihen.

He lives in a side room at the Inugami Detective Agency, and works with the team there as the one in charge of all their tech connections and providing them with resources on the shadier side of the law. Due to being a vampire, he has had many long years studying and mastering a wide variety of skills, eventually got bored with them, and then became a game creator and tech expert because it was the one thing he could find that was always evolving and kept him entertained.

He has a very typical anime-vampire look, with chin length fluffy silvery-grey hair, pointed ears, and red eyes. The outfit he wears is extremely simple, it is just some of Inugami’s old grey sweats that he let him borrow, which ended up being just slightly too big for his frame.

Juliette Fairmont (Sarah Catherine Hook) is a main character in Netflix’s First Kill. Based on the short story by V.E. Schwab, the plot centers on two enemies: Calliope and Juliette. As the title suggests, each must carry out their first kill — Calliope must kill her first monster and Juliette must feed from her first victim — but they fall for each other instead. Juliette is a vampire, specifically a Legacy vampire, who can easily blend in with humans. Sweet and well-meaning, she attends Lancaster Academy with her best friend Ben. Her family urges her to make her first kill, but she doesn’t want to hurt anyone. But as her thirst increases, it becomes difficult, especially while crushing on Calliope. Her style is girly prep, which reflects her initial innocence and purity.

She tries to encourage Juliette to give into her true nature and make her first kill. But it’s revealed her intentions have been sinister and self-centered. Her style is similarly girlish, but oppositely provocative to contrast her sister’s purity.
