Episode 8

Urgh, this episode focuses on a jaded chick, Ruby. Yukari was boring but man, is Ruby a wet blanket.

- Here's a thought for Ruby: If you want to get Tsukune's attraction, why don't you wear a short skirt like the rest? Don't ruin the fun for everyone.
- Best fight ever.
- Gasp, Lelouch!?
- +4 for Nekonome-sensei for teh sexy pubescent poses and ripping the swimsuit using only her "kitties".
- Nekonome-sensei as Catwoman? Wow, scratch me silly and purr me sideways, I'm so on!
- What's with the chapters? Most of them aren't even worth showing.
- It's so sad to see Kokoa being a filler character again.

Meh, an episode as boring as one featuring Yukari.

Episode 9

- I dreaded over the skiing theme. Skiing = cold weather = thick clothing = less fanservice.
- I think it's time Kokoa knows where the party's at, everytime.
- +1 to Mizore's fear factor.
- One more special attribute found on Kurumu's breasts - they make great punching bags.
- +2 to Mizore's mother's hot/horny factor.
- It's a relief that the yeti's not what it seems to be. For a moment, I was squeaming at the idea of Mizore's mother who should've slept with the yeti before *_*

Episode 10:

- JE T'AIME!!!!!!!!
^I actually struggled a bit to understand what that meant at first, when I realized it was "Je t'aime" I facepalmed, hard.
- Concert scene, lyrics, atmosphere put together made me lol really hard.
- Fact: Kurumu's breasts can NOT be used to support volleyballs. c_c;

Too little fanservice this episode, a bit disappointed.
I don't have opinions. I have facts.

- Fact: Kurumu's breasts can NOT be used to support volleyballs. c_c;
*I actually arrive at a different conclusion.

Episode 10

Keyword of the Day = Je t'aime~

- The bishounen gag seems a little different from the gags in the previous episodes. Hmm...
- Oh, silly Tsukune trying to pole vault in vain ^^
- *Mythbusters finding: Kurumu's breast measurements = a volleyball. Yep, one breast : one ball.
- Okay, strangely I envy, hate and grateful to Ijuuin. Here's why:
- Envy: He seduces (almost) every chick in the school, even the kitty teacher. If I were him, after getting them in my control, it's only natural to hump them (one-on-one or altogether is another issue). Also, perhaps the first dude ventured into the Forbidden Territory.
- Hate: He made Kurumu flashed her breasts! What the $#^%*~!?
- Gratitude: He made the girls wear The Fetish Costume Deluxe Package. Dominatrix included too, in a special red color edition.
- I want to laugh at the singing but I can't. I can't understand the lyrics!
- I don't get it. Why is it easier to hypnotize Kokoa than Moka?
- Despite a lot of talking points, Akira's right: Too little fanservice. It's disappointing.

I tried to ask this question on AnimeSuki, but the only answer I got was that it's all an excuse for fanservice.  Which is true...

Quote
Ep 10

Question: Was it supposed to be that obvious that the transfer student was Ko-chan? Because the seiyuu gave it away after just one line. It was supposed to be the type of joke that the characters knew nothing about but the audience was in on, right?

Also, where did Ko-chan suddenly get all those gnarly powers of mind-control through charm and good looks? Since it was kinda implied that he only got them recently somehow. Or is this one of those "forget logic" moments?

For the first question, I didn't bother to actually check the seiyuu of Iuujin. That, and I was too caught up with the hilarity to even notice it... yes, I didn't notice it honestly.

Secondly, rather than questioning Ko-chan's powers, his intentions for using his powers in this particular situation perplexes me. Why does he use it to help Kokoa and not naturally for himself? Some men would dump their girlfriends just to gain that kind of power.

Also, why did he flounder when Kokoa found him during that fanciful concert? Even if he was caught trying to score with the girls, he can try explain that he's doing it for her after all.

Just my random thoughts.

Not that the answer to any of those questions actually matters...

Episode 11, aka the OH NOES PLOT EPISODE

Once again, not enough fanservice... this is why I absolutely hate fanservice-y anime. They don't do a good enough job on the fanservice. Maybe this is why Gonzo is going to produce a straight-up ero anime... with their level of storytelling and their level of fanservice, they can't satisfy any demographic. I'm just going to go find some Moka doujin... -_-

You think so? I beg to differ.

Episode 11

Yes, it has less fanservice than some of the previous episodes but it has some golden moments, with the exposing-true-nature and all.

- Oh my god, nosebleed. I love you, Kurumu.
- *gasp* Snow White!?
- Breathless, rising body temperature... oh my f**king god, Kurumu's in heat! MORE NOSEBLEED! This bit really turned me on; even more than some hentai titles.
- BEST LINE BY MIZORE.
- Oh yeah, "COSMIC LOVE" by Nana Mizuki brings back memories...
- The two Mokas meet each other at last. Well this is new.
- Nasty, nasty girl >:3

You can thank me for those lines. Especially the "nipples like cherries" >_____>

I... you know, I don't know. I think I've gotten a bit too used to RV fanservice... it just isn't that appealing anymore. :V

Ep 12

For someone who's supposed to be so cool and tough, why has Inner Moka turned out to be so boring?  I actually want Tsukune to succeed on his quest since, even though I didn't think it possible, Inner Moka is actually even more bland than Moka.

Episode 12

- First of all, I know what this episode is trying to do, and that is to see that Inner Moka can never replace Akashiya Moka, and the latter is sorely missed. The problem is, I don't see why Inner Moka has such a dry character to make everyone, including the viewers, to miss Akashiya. SK is right.
- I had no idea Akashiya gets a bust increase during the transformations.
- That is so... awkward. It's like Angelina Jolie doing pop music.
- Why is Inner Moka trying to act like Akashiya? I don't get it.
- Dialogue:

Tsukune: Moka-san~
Moka: Tsukune.
Tsukune: Moka-san~
Moka: Tsukune.
.
.
.
AC: *facepalm*

- Well, at least their mothers came to the rescue. Mmm... hawt mothers.

This episode is very boring, honestly. Perhaps it's the serious tone this episode, or just than there are less boobs this time.

I don't get it either.  Inner Moka has always been presented as this wise and strong character while she's been inside regular Moka, yet, now that she's spent an episode on the outside, she just resembles a more bland version of regular Moka, but without the saccharine cuteness.  There's no drama (not that there ever has been) to putting Inner Moka away again, because they've done nothing to give her a reasonable case that her place is on the outside and not inside regular Moka again.  At least just give her some personality or something, not a stern, joyless version of the "Moka-san" "Tsukune" routine.

That "Moka-san/Tsukune" routine is as bland as watered-down soup. This is just one instance where it pays to have Akashiya Moka in the series.

What did we learn from ep 13 of Rosario + Vampire Capu2?  That this show isn't very good at the whole "plot" thing.  Oh wait, we knew that already.

What was with that inexplicable change in animation style in this ep?  Did Gonzo blow their budget again?
