Rosario+Vampire 07

Rosario+Vampire

Horrible episode. They speeded up Shirayuki’s appearance and totally raped the plot and story.

Yeah, I finally went to read the Rosario+Vampire manga, and I now totally understand why it’s popular and I have to admit, I’m hooked to it. But the anime adaptation people, as usual, just love to screw things up.

I will say though, while Rie Kugimiya isn’t exactly what I expected for Shirayuki’s role, I will say that she did play it pretty well, using a her lower and slower voice. Funny though, now she has played opposite ends of the spectrum, with her role as Shirayuki :D.

    Didn’t they skip the whole sunflower witch and protecting the newspaper club arcs?
    Well i guess at this pace they’ll be going into fillers D:

    Yeah they did, but we know Ruby is going to be in the anime so we should see her soon. Not next episode though. Well anyways I knew they were going to have to speed Shirayuki’s entrance, but this was ridiculous! The episode was all over the place and there were times I was going, what the…….. Like when moka jumped from so far away and magically stayed in the air all that time for Tsukune to grab her Rosario. 0_0 I mean you couldn’t have said it any better that the episode was raped. At this rate not even vamp Tsukune is going to make up for this.

    i dunno if we should spoiler the last sentence of previous comment or not since i doubt alot of people who are watching this havent read the manga already. But yeah the anime is all over the place so i just hope they actually cover all 10 volumes of material in 26 episodes

    lol, I was anticipating the gonzo hater.

    “Typically any Anime Studio”
    Alot of anime studio have a tendency to change content or condense plot. Studio Deen: higurashi,shion no ou, Fate/Stay Night
    J.C Staff: Shana, Zero no tsukama and what other studio? :P
    While I understand the Gonzo Hate its the same problems most studio face when you’re given a budget and an episode Count e.g. 13/26.

    @Knowngni
    Atm its Slated for a 13 episode series, unless there some new info I haven’t heard of?

    Anyway, I’m hoping that Gonzo will not be introducing anymore girls until we get to the student diciplinary arc which involves another teacher yet to be introduced. with 13 episode set to be release on Dvd i’m more curious how they going to warp up it all up.

    Yeah I guess I was just focused on GONZO because I know of some specific works they’ve messed up (Black Cat, Hellsing, Kaze no Stigma).

    Yeah,if it indeed 13 eps,Shirayuki should be introduced by now.Since Ruby is at the opening credits,the witches hill arc is sure and the last 2 or 3 episodes would wrapped it up with the discipline commitee arc.If that was the case then I wonder how they would actually fix Shirayuki’s role in that since she doesn’t appear til after that arc in the manga.It should have a second season or go over that since they are definitely missing a huge chunk of the story if not.

    it was the same in ichigo 100%.
    In the anime they made all the girls appear too soon.

    Ah 13 episodes only, explains why the rush to introduce everyone so fast.. Really though, they shoulda just skipped shirayuki altogether and not included her at all in the anime, taken more time actually following the manga and ended after witch hill or something.. Instead of trying to fit waaaaay too much into too little space..

    I’m having flashbacks to Mahou Sensei Negima trying to fit the entire kyoto arc (3 volumes) into just 2 episodes :/ God that sucked… hope Xebec do a better job on ToLove-Ru this april!

    Ah april, how I’m looking forwards to you… did you know there’s a Soul Eater anime coming?! like, omg! It’s my favourite manga-that-nobody-else-seems-to-have-read!

    Anime provides more exposure to the original content manga, novel, visual novel and ectera thus creates a larger fan base. That’s exactly what Rosario+Vampire is achieving. I’m more confident that more people we know about and read about Soul Eater (Manga) once the anime is out.

    Personally I rather they ended it at the Witch’s Hill arc and have the Student Discipline committee before it.

    Considering Shirayuki being fans favourite it would stir alot of trouble if she wasn’t introduced in the series. All and all I have no complaints as I do like her appearance alot. As to what she’s going to bring to the show maybe Matoi Tsunetsuki from Zetoubo Sensei is a good example here.

    well this was expected

    but hey, atleast their animating it
    plus in the anime shira bearly gets noticed so to skip the her apperance arc is weird.
