Rosario + Vampire Capu2 Ep. 13: Cross + Family + Vampire

Moka can still make a good entrance.

Way to play up the “we’re all friends” motif here, guys.  I continue to be amazed that this series managed to fill 13 episodes and use basically a single volume of manga.  Oh well, it did deliver on its not-so-subtle promise of loads of ecchi and panty shots, so I guess some people can be happy.  Or maybe I just need to give up hoping for some decent plot in this series at all?

Rosario + Vampire Capu2 Ep. 12: Seal + Vampire

True Moka got too much screen tiem. You know how True Moka comes out and shows off some excessive amounts of pantsu and badassery at the same time?  This episode now proves that too much True Moka is a bad thing.  Or at the very least, True Moka trying to be Wussy Moka is a bad thing.  VERY bad thing.  I couldn’t even find this episode funny until about the 18 minute mark.  Needless to say, this is a much cuter story arc than what’s written up in the manga, and I will continue to rail on how poor of a decision that was.  But who am I to deny Japan its dosage of pantsu?

Cabaret Line of Kickass!

Oh wow, they actually used some of the manga material.  I’m impressed, although the end was a tad bit different than the manga storyline.  Nevertheless, this episode gives a better idea of what the series could be like if they actually used the material they have on hand.  Too bad they got so wrapped up in censorship issues and showing pantsu that they forgot about plot for about 6 episodes.

Then again, who’s watching this for plot?

Kokoa is mai waifu

How do you assemble a harem within a single episode in the anime world?

  1. Learn hypnosis
  2. Control all of the girls
  3. ????
  4. PROFIT!

I guess it also helps to be pretty hot stuff too.

DVD VERSION WHERE!?

Well…it’s not exactly snow woman country, but I guess it comes close enough.  Since it’s techically a skiing episode, not many panty shots this time around (mixed blessing?).  In fact, only Kokoa provides that kind of…relief.  Still mind-numbingly funny, I suppose, though it’s really a novelty show right now.  To be honest, I’ve been watching more Top Gear, House, and Fringe than anime.  American TV can be good sometimes – honestly!

Ruby does not approve of these skirts.

Yes, I am way behind due to sickness, work, and some extenuating circumstances.  Let’s see if I can get back up to speed sooner rather than later, starting with the latest episode of R+V.  This episode is quite a mash of different short stories, but the end is quite a shift in tone.  It’s literally as if someone flipped a switch on the entire thing.

ToraTsukune XD

Oh wow, they went back to the manga!  Best of all, they pulled it off pretty accurately too.  I remain hopeful to see a GAR version of Tsukune by the end of this season.  This episode, however, was just fun to watch.  The manga chapter was already quite amusing, so to see it animated was something very interesting.  It’s kind of strange that there is a sense of seriousness at the end of the episode, though.  Again, GAR Tsukune?
