WELCOME TO THE JAPANIMATION THREAD!

Rosario+Vampire is one of the best shows you've possibly not watched due to prejudices and you are a worse off person because of it.

"But Beel", you say, "monster girls?"

rosariovampirec.jpg

Trust me.

"I heard it is full of fanservice."


Yes, it is. But...

yukarikurumut.jpg
(Ok the manga is superior and you should read it but hear me out here!)


[size=+3]ANIME:[/size]

If you can't put up with 9 episodes before things start getting awesome, I don't know what to tell you. If you have a particular understanding of the monster girl genre, you may even find those first 8 episodes amusing. (Probably not.)

"All right, all right, I give up already. Tell me about the series (again)."

Franchise, really. But anyway...

R+V is the story of one average guy named Tsukune who ends up at a monster school because he couldn't get into any other school and his parents accidentally sent him there. Unfortunately for him, he's the only human at Yokai Gakuen and they're out for blood.

That's good, because Tsukune's first encounter is her:

539px1akashiyamoka.png

"Is that...?"

Yes, dear reader. Our darling Moka-san is indeed a vampire. And she has a naughty side once the rosario on her chest is removed.
Spoiler:

It's Love At First Bite. They fall hard for each other, and Tsukune makes up his mind to stay at Yokai Gakuen while keeping his identity hidden. It's a match made in Heaven...

...or in Hell, because there's a harem of other monsters after his bodily fluids.

tsukuneandkurumu.png
KURUMU KURONO - Succubus
At first glance, she's another big boobed bimbo, but under that huge bosom is a heart of gold. Kurumu was originally jealous of Moka and tried to steal Tsukune away, but his courage convinced her to choose him as her "Mate of Fate". She now constantly tries to suffocate (poor) Tsukune with her funbags, and acts as an older sister for her friends.

mizore.png
MIZORE SHIRAYUKI - Yuki-Onna
She's a shy girl that just needs an icebreaker. Because she already stalked you down and froze you for safekeeping. Thinking Tsukune is another loner who would understand her, she stalks him and tries to keep it cool, but ends up only hurting others. After a misunderstanding, she could no longer control her ice powers and almost puts Tsukune and friends on ice, but his kindness managed to melt her heart and win her over. She continues to stalk Tsukune and throw ice darts at Kurumu if she gets too close to him.

2ac6e4533e7988c3c246667.png
YUKARI SENDO - Witch
A child genius who skipped grades. Unfortunately, that left her feeling like she doesn't belong, and the other monsters not liking witches because they resemble humans doesn't help either. With this ostracization, she responds the only way she could. Throwing childish tantrums and summoning giant water pans to smash their heads in. But behind that giggly childish laugh are her tears. Moka and Tsukune were the only ones to realize that, and their understanding made Yukari realize what she needs to do. She needs to get them together with her for a threesome.

87fd5a64f33bafabdd5d4e2.png
RUBY TOUJOU - Witch
An orphaned witch in the human world, she was taken in by a kind elderly witch and raised in a beautiful field of sunflowers. Sadly, she was orphaned when her parents were killed by humans in a car accident, and she resents them so much for that and for attempting to landscape her sunflowers away that she turned the sunflowers into a man-eating plant army. Only Tsukune's determination to save her could convince her to regain her sanity. Many many things have happened, and now she works for the School's chairman.


After gathering this tight-knit group of friends, Tsukune's identity becomes close to discovered by the school's corrupt police group, The Public Safety Commission. His friends stage an epic rescue where Tsukune is killed.

So that's Season 1.

In the manga, that's where the story REALLY starts to take off. But we'll get to that in a second.


Season 2 is just fanservice and filler fluff, but they do have curry zombies

rosario2curryzombies.jpg

and Moka's little sister, Kokoa Shuzen.

rosario2020vampire20cap.jpg
She is yandere as fuck.




[size=+3]MANGA:[/size]

The manga is much LESS fanservice-oriented, and focuses more on shounen-style action and has been compared favorably as similar to One Piece, MxO and Negima.

After being killed, Tsukune is revived by a bite from Moka, which infuses him with vampire blood.

Pros: He now can summon the demonic power to kick ass.
Cons: If it gets out of control, he becomes an out-of-control ghoul that seeks bloodshed and mayhem...FOREVER.

Fun times ahead for that guy, because things take a turn for the bad-ass and it keeps on truckin'.

He takes on the WHO'S WHO of anime/manga, from

Kyuubi nine-tailed foxes
rosariokyuubi.jpg

to Kira
rosariokeikaku.jpg

to Pikachu
rosariopika.jpg

to OH NOES PARASYTES
rosarioohnoesparasyte.jpg

And shinigamis and many more! This group wins with the power of friendship.

And superior firepower.

Plus, it really is a progressive comic with this latest plot point

Personally, I love the manga for the moments of awesome
Spoiler:

The moments of YAY

And the moments of heartwarming

Also, as a last benefit, the music for the series is, like everything else, awesome. All of the OPs and EDs and most of the insert songs are sung by the esteemed Mizuki Nana, Moka-san's seiyuu.

If you must, you can also discuss other awesome animation of an eastern variety here. Or manga, if you like. Or visual novels. Or even the soundtracks, OPs, and EDs. Not doujin games, though, as we have another thread for that. And not One Piece, either, as we also have a thread for that.

And now, a word from our malevolent overlords:

Hi, I'm ElJeffe! You might know me from such mod actions as cleaning up gold-farming spam and jailing the fuck out of people. Today I'm here to talk to you about your new anime thread.

This is to be your new home for the next 100 or so pages. Here, you may discuss anime and things related to anime and whatever the fuck else people who are into anime do. Of course, hentai is beyond the scope of this thread, and anyway, what the fuck is wrong with the people who dig that shit, I mean seriously?

What you will not engage in here is retarded drama and bitching and whining. If you want retarded drama, go watch Desperate Housewives or Wife-Swap or something. This is to be a happy thread full of happy commentary. If I have to lock it for the same stupidity that raped the last incarnation, the anime thread will not be coming back.

Also, Clawshrimpy? Yeah, stay out of here. You've lost your anime thread privileges.


Right, so on that note...

So, gentle reader, you may be wondering what in there should you actually watch?

Well, if you know that your tastes fall in line with a particular poster, you might find the following list handy!

Alternatively, you can head on over to MyAnimeList and create yourself a profile. Then, join the PA Group for Judging Others and use the List of PA Handles thread to figure out who's who. If you put what you've watched into your profile, you can then get a comparison between yourself and another poster and see how well your tastes match up!

On the other hand, you may find yourself looking for a broader perspective.

In that case, why not take a gander at...

And, this should be your expression in the anime thread:

    I absolutely love Tenchi, but I still feel Rosario+Vampire (manga) is better.

    Tenchi is still the top harem anime, since R+V subverts the genre and becomes something more.

    It's ironic how there are moments where Ryoko spends half the episode completely nude (and darn proud of it), and yet the images I've seen of R+V appear much more obscene.

    But seriously, mashing some huge tits onto some shy kid's face? Getting old, Japan. Getting real old.

    I know what I would put on my OP if I got the chance.
    Spoiler:

    I don't think it's possible for Giant Robo to get enough love.

    Yes it can, because hardly anyone knows about it.

    And that's a goddamn shame, because it truly is one of the greats, and I'd give anything for more episodes.

    Which will never happen because people would rather watch the latest boob-on-face comedy.

    Fixed.

    Why aren't more people talking about Tokyo Majin? I've seen two episodes and it's been awesome.

    it gets really, really bad

    it's obvious they blew their load on animation in the first few episodes and most of the characters get incredibly grating

    might have one of the more disappointing endings i've seen, too
    PFFFT

    Tokyo Majin has awesome fight scenes and some really amusing characters.

    It's downsides are that both seasons have absolutely AWFUL endings. =(

    The second season's ending... man... why would you end like that?

    Good god.

    And then it keeps going for two more episodes just to rub it in.
