Rosario + Vampire Capu2
« on: October 07, 2008, 07:03:32 AM »
Episode 1

It starts off in expected fashion; well, it's a no-brainer anyway. Everything goes back to normal since that royal rumble towards the end of the first season, except for a few changes, which I doubt will affect anything as the series progresses. Plus, a new character has arrived, and my opinion is this: A forgettable and irritating side character i.e. no different from Kururu, Yukari or Mizore. In conclusion, I say that this will be a mediocre anime just like the first season, but for all the pantyshots and harem generics, I'll stay on and watch as this season's guilty pleasure. And, hehe, censorship rears its ugly head again.

And apparently, the 'Discotheque' opening sequence (put at the end of the episode for this time) made me really wet

If people are stupid enough to watch the censored version, then they deserve what they get.

The show itself is more of the same, but the OP sequence is a miracle.  It's seriously the greatest OP sequence of all time... of the season. *Cough*

The OP animation sequence is really crisp and all, but I must be (just about anyhow) the only person on the internets who didn't like the song that accompanies it.  :(

Rosario + Vampire Capu2...

Why do I keep reading this as Rosario + Vampire Cap You, Too.  Are there even guns involved in this?  Gangbangers?  Where do I come up with this shit?
I'm just like you, only smarter™.

Episode 2

Sigh, so Kokoa is the modern-day bloodsucking version of Shampoo. Nothing extraordinary happens, except for Kokoa's bursts of rage brings back memories of Ranma 1/2 inadvertently. Wow, and the ending is so... anti-climatic.

 :P

Episode 3

- I'm amazed by how Tsukune takes a full blow from a gigantic spiked club and escapes with only a few drops of blood. It's amazing, I'd say.
- Kurumu's mom is the best. It's MILF, all in bold capital letters.
- Kurumu's assertive approach is glorious. Best line she's ever said in both seasons.
- Best position Tsukune has ever gotten himself into, thanks to Moka. I hate him so much.

You have no idea how hard I'm RRAAAGGEing at the fact that all broadcasts of this show are now censored.

I dunno what it is about this show, it's still the same plotless, mindless crap, but I'm enjoying this a lot more than last season.  Kurumu = <3 !

Episode 4

- The main character for this episode is my least favorite character, Yukari. Sigh.
- I'm amazed that a conjurer like Yukari can do all kinds of magic, but not a quick boob job. Something's not right.
- Moka's transformation and bout are being overshadowed by Yukari's plight. I sniggered at the narrator's fading routine remark.
- What is the purpose behind Kokoa's presence again?

- My final words: No matter how voluptuous Yukari can be, nothing can beat Kurumu's boobs. It can even move on their own and do tricks!

Kokoa's appearance lead to the funniest joke in this episode: the way the girls fight.

As for the rest of the episode, yeah, boring episode because Yukari is a boring character.  And the physical scene made me RAGE!  Bats and bears everywhere.  What's the point of a fanservice anime if you're going to censor the fanservice?

Episode 5

Theme of the Week: Curry!

- I had no idea that an Indian youkai exists. The youkai influence is breaking boundaries!
- Everyone has contracted The Simpsons Fever. *gasp*
- Would somebody go incinerate that irritating mousebat who's covering the moneyshots? How wonderful, he has a new accomplice to assist him >.>
- Curry dishes make bad projectiles. The Brainiac crew must be livid at the discovery by someone else.
- What the hell? I'm still trying to understand this.
- This one too. gg, Moka. This is an instance of how trying to act cool can hit you back right on the face.

Kokoa's appearance lead to the funniest joke in this episode: the way the girls fight.
It's sad to see that Kokoa has been nothing more than a side character and not involved in something funny (usually involving the main cast). It's not that I expect anything more than that from her from the beginning, but I wish she's more than she seems to be.

Episode 6

This is the best episode yet, and I mean it.

- Oh yes, a hot spring... something kinky is bound to happen, since they go hand-in-hand.
- This is just amazing. Either Moka is ingenious or the R+V crew shot themselves in the foot. I lol'ed eventually. Plus, to think that hot spring water contains sulfur, meaning it's not pure water in the first place.
- Wow, Kokoa finally played a big role in this episode.
- The chase scene was hilarious, but goddammit, that was so close. Damn you, mousebat!
- Moka successfully scares me in this episode... she's fierce all of a sudden. Coolness +2 points!

Really, you liked this episode?  I couldn't stand it.  Not just because of the inane, pointless antagonists and bland humour (what happened to the edginess that this season had in the first three eps?), but because the characters acted like self-centred jerks.  Well, I guess that's not totally new (the mild antagonism between the girls is one of the reasons this is "entertaining", in the purest sense of the word), but the extent in this ep really irked me.

I don't see any edginess between the first three episodes and this one. All of them are self-centered from the first place and I honestly want them to stay like that; otherwise, it'll be boring. Plus, the hot spring cliche kinda worked in this case and let's face it: all the villains in season one and this are pathetic. Furthermore, Kokoa had more airtime than before, which was great.

I think that this episode nicked episode 3 by a few inches.

Episode 7

Well, that was kinda fun.

- Tsukune has such a doting mother. I feel sorry for her ordeal.
- BEST QUOTE BY MOKA EVER!
- I have to give it to Moka in this episode. She scored points with Tsukune's mother, moved in for the kill and summoned the Inner Moka to clean up the mess. Great job.
- -1 to Yukari for not adding anything to the fun.
- +4 to Kurumu for her cries in the bedroom scene... and doing it four times. That was brilliant.
