Characters & Voice Actors
Rosario + Vampire the anime is the adaptation of a manga of the same name, or at least, thats what it was supposed to be.
Story: I'm trying to best not to rip this show apart but bear with me, Tsukune is your unfortunate high-school male who has just been enrolled in a school he doesnt even know when his parents found an admission pass on the ground by accident. Little does he know is that the school is for monsters than hate humans and would prob kill any on sight. It is when he meets Moka, a beautiful girl who in reality is a powerful vampire. What I just wrote was basically what you would get introduced with on the first episode, everything was cool then. As the "story" moved on, I slowly started to get irritated at the EXCESSIVE amount of panty shots this anime had. Now I enjoy fanservice every now and then like any other guy but in this show the fanservice was given to you in large and unnecessary quantities, a girl could be standing doing nothing WITHOUT EVEN WIND BLOWING, but they would still show you her panties for no real reason. I thought this was just another one of those fanservice shows so I didnt really wanted to hate this show for that reason. Around ep 5 I decided to pick up the manga as well since I heard good things about it, it was then when I realized what a mess this anime had become. They turned a good manga with interesting plot and good action, into a fanservice driven anime that had tunned down the action and REALLY changed the storyline just to turn it into an ecchi comedy. Also EVERY episode follows the same old formula, If I could describe a R+V episode it would be as follows:
Tsukune meets Moka
Tsukune meets an antagonist
Tsukune gets in trouble
Moka tries to help
Tsukune accidentally removes Moka's rosary
Vampire Moka beats everyone up
Everything is happy again
This same formula is applies for every episode of this show with exception of the last 2 episodes, which were good on its own right but still managed to butcher the goodness of the manga. If you watch animes to get a good story you wont find it here.
Art: As terrible as the story is, this anime's best feature was its animation. The colours were all great and the animation was fluent everytime. I failed to notice any sign of quality drop throughout the show. I will give this show props for that.
Sound: It wasnt bad, nothing really out of the ordinary. The ED song was really good though....IMO the best part of every episode was the end credits XD
Character: The characters of this anime are likeable, well Tsukune is the typicial guy who tries to help but ends up being helped instead because of its uselessness. Moka's normal form is a contrast to her vampire form as one is sweet and friendly and the other is rough and swift to act. To be honest my only motivation to finish this show was Shirayuki Mizore aka Ice Girl. Voiced by Kugimiya Rie it was nice to see her use a non loli voice and well the character itself IMO is awesome. She could've been the main character :)
Enjoyment: I'll keep this simple, I didnt like this anime. It was hard to finish some episodes and then try my best not to drop it right after. Its safe to say I will not be watching the second season if they havent learned their lesson on this one.
Overall Rosario + Vampire was a rather disappointing show considering how Gonzo had a really good source to work with but decided to ruin it in order to bring ecchi comedy and pointless plot. If you are the type of person who likes this kind of ecchi comedy and mindless fanservice then R+V will be a good show for you to watch and I recommend it for you (also rejoice as a season 2 will be coming). For someone who likes a good story, dont bother, this anime is not worth it. read more
Okay then, where to start? How about the fact that this was made by Gonzo. Now, before you go jumping down my throat, yes, Gonzo has made some really, REALLY good series, and are still making them today. However, they also have a very long list of bad shows they've produced as well.
This is one of those bad ones.
I walked into this one having read the first two volumes of the manga and knowing fully that there was only a 50/50 chance of this series being any good. Unfortunately, my gamble didn't pay off. The first thing that bothers me is the fanservice. Yes, the manga also has copious amounts of it, but it takes a backseat to the plot. Here in the anime, the reverse is true. The show reverts to a cliched monster-of-the-week formula with no real tension in any of the situations because you know exactly how it will be resolved by the end of the episode. There are no over-arcing storylines and absolutely no character development.
It's a shame, because there's a lot of potential here, with the setting they chose, putting a human in a school for monsters and all, but any clever setups we could have had are completely blown in favor of even more fanservice. The only consistent plot element is the insufferable on-again, off-again relationship between the two man characters, Tsukune and Moka, but even then, their arguments and troubles are not interesting, not sympathetic, and not really grounded in any sort of reality that would make us care for what's going on.
Speaking of characters, that's also a place where the series falls flat on its ass. Moka and Tsukune are the only ones who have any real depth to them, and that's really only because of Moka's split personality, and their strained relationship. The rest of the characters, while having a few funny moments, only exist to create a little more conflict and to fill in the stereotypical rolls of a Harem anime: Kurumu's a bitch, Yukina's a loli, and Mizori's a quiet stalker. There, you know everything about them you'll ever need to know. Other characters, like Nekonome-sensei are actually far more fun to see, but they're only ever on screen for a small amount of time in each episode, if they're even featured at all. Oh, and since the villain changes every episode as well, don't expect any deep characterization for them either. They're all either perverts who want to get into one of the main characters' pants (by force if necessary) or want to prove their strength by maiming one of the heroes. There is one exception to this rule, but to avoid spoilers, I can't talk about her, and again, she only appears in like, two episodes before conforming to another stereotype.
Moving on to a different topic, the sound in this anime is probably the only really good part of this. The voice actors bring a lot of energy to their rolls, and it's competent enough, though a few of the characters do cross the annoyance line one too many times for my taste. The sound effects are also decent, if a little stock, though the one you'll probably hear the most often is the strange bouncing sound effect that happens whenever a female's breasts bounce. Yes, bouncing breasts have their own sound effect in this show. The music is also good, if a bit stock, and it has a good mixing of classical string scores and horn concertos, but there isn't a whole lot of variety.
In terms of animation, well... it's Gonzo working on a school harem anime. The character designs are actually really well done and all of them do look very faithful to their original manga designs, though I do think a few of the coloring options for some of them was a tad strange... Kurumu having blue hair just doesn't seem right to me and Mizore's black and purple outfit and hair make me think she's going to turn into the Cheshire Cat at any moment. However, the designs are consistently good, but the animation itself is... well, Gonzo. Still frames abound, folks. Close-ups even moreso. Scenes of people running look a little choppy. You're getting the idea, I hope. The only parts that seem to be above this quality are during the fight scenes that take place in each episode, but these fights are so short (most of them end with a single blow, folks) that it's barely noticeable. The only other place that seems to have a budget on this show is the giggle physics. Seriously, an female who has breasts large enough to be noticeable, you will see jiggles and jumps all over the place that looks more fluent than the animation of the actual character.
Like I've said, I've only read the first two (out of a total of six) volumes of the manga, but even then, I still feel like I know more about the characters, their motivations, their thoughts, and their personalities than after watching all thirteen episodes of this series. The characters aren't interesting and at best only serve to further the plot while at worst just exist for more fanservice, the plot is nonexistent and the characters (if you haven't figured out by now) aren't strong enough to drive the story forward, and while the main focus would appear to be on Moka and Tsukune's relationship, absolutely nothing changes or gets resolved at all by the end of the series!
Bottom line, if you're really interested, skip the anime, skip the second season (capu 2) and just pick up the manga instead! trust me, you'll be glad you did... but hey, I do have one good thing to say about this: at no point during the series do any of the vampires sparkle! read more
Both are pure service anime made for your amusement. Yes, there is harem as well as overly jiggly boobs. If you liked Rosario+Vampire, then you'll love Tu-LOVE-Ru, or otherwise. The female lead role both have lovely pink hair.
Same kind of harem comedy with a lot of ecchi and fanservice in it but absolutely nothing that can be considered story that took more then 5 minute to think of.
Both also havea pink haired female lead character.
So if you can enjoy one of them you'll probably also like the other.
They are both heavily ecchi oriented and with a bit of comedy added in. Both of the series focused more on the fanservice than on the story, which made the story very thin. They also have a pink haired female lead character.
They both have people fighting over the same person.Well in these cases, they have a group of high school girls fighting over one boy. They are both very funny, good story lines, and have really good endings. They dont just suddenly end like some others do. :>
Very Similar in feel and harem comedy. Both Girls have hot pink hair =)
Moka-san's legendary vampire transformations and Lala's costume "dressforms" are similar, they both have pink hair and their personalities match.
You like stories that started from a "fated encounter" one day? Then look no further than this two harem, comedy, romance, and school setting centered series. The male protagonist of both series has this kind of encounter that changed their life forever. The main difference though is the scenario, one is that of a supernatural encounter and the other is an extraterrestrial-life encounter.
They both have awesome characters and funny/cute parts in the plot
Both have weak male leads but they both have a harem full of supernatural girls who fell in love with the protagonist as the story goes on.
Most of the girls in both these anime are not human and are from another area. The male protagonist are human and find themselves in a situation they are unable to get out of. The girls he meet are totally kawaii and it seems the male protagonist reached far within their heart in order for them fall in LOVE HIM WITH ALL THEIR MIGHT. The difference is the location they take place in.
• Both anime have jiggly boobs. ♥
• Both female lead have lovely pink hair!
• Both are harem.
To love-Ru (one of my top 3) is a story about a kid named Rito Yuuki who is desperately in love with haruna sairenji, later on in the first episode (spoiler) a girl named Lala from the planet deviluke teleports into his bath unexpectedly. now the similarities in these two shows comes down to a very fine line. both of the shows take place in highschool and in both shows the people (other then the main character) are aliens/monsters. both of these shows revolve around a shy, inept main character that doesn't know how to make up his mind to even save his life. i highly recommend watching To Love-Ru if you haven't already.
Both have Harlems and good plots echie which is allways is a plus thay have there funny moments and all around good even if u never heard of thes titles please give them a try u just might like them
The main male character in these series got off in a weird start when he met a girl with some strange characteristics. Similar wise, the female character has a characteristics of a pink hair, innocent, and somewhat lovable personality and a school filled with comedy moments. The male character, at first felt confused and frightened, but soon will get used later on. Expect some romance, and some supernatural elements on the story.
The lead, Tsukune and Rito that is, are both shy and kind. Both animes are harem, and they both have the female lead, lala and moka that is, to be a sweet, emotional and optimistic girl with long pink hair and green eyes. Their both kind of the fantasy, romance, comedy, school, shounen and of course ecchi genre. I think they both have a good story line/plot, but not the best.. at least they're not predictable. ^^ I love both of these animes especially: "rosario + vampire" but that's just my opinion. i hope you can use this for anything, sincerely Mikkel M.C.F. ^^
Both have Vampire female leads, and both female leads are not what they appear to be at first. They are also both rather humorous and set around schools. R+V is more of a harem compared with Karin being more about Karin's journey through her oddity and finding love and acceptance.
Both of these anime deals with the supernatural & have vampires
and r School, Romance, Comedys
To me, the obvious recomendation is the anime KARIN, also about a high school boy and a vampire girl. While KARIN for the most part lacks the "fighting" elements of ROSARIO+VAMPIRE, the romantic comedy elements of a supernatural "odd-couple" remain.
Both of the main character is a vampire and the boy in both story are human and got stuck with the main character.
These stories tell how boys somehow got involved in vampires, the main characters. Karin is a reverse vampire though giving blood instead of taking. Rosario has more fighting scenes and more like harem.
both have a vampire girl that needs to suck blood from the guy protag.
of course the guy is a regular dude, but he gets pulled into the whole vampire zone (though in RV it also includes other demons)
Both have the main characters being a vampires that also go to school...The vampires also are supposed to hide that fact that they are vampires.
Both of the main character is a vampire and the boy in both story are human and got stuck with the main character.
Both have vampires, love rivals, and are both but together with a large amount of care. Two of my favorite shows ever! Both also have a large variety of different interesting characters.
Both anime follow the daily life of normal boys who suddenly fall in love with a girl that happens to be a vampire. Comedy ensured when they become friends. The only difference in Rosario to Vampire is that there is more of a harem. I recommend this to everyone who's searching for some comedy/action to kill time.
Both have a female lead characters whom are quite dense. Both these rom/coms have a school setting where the main characters (Tsukune/Karin) are trying to hide the fact about their identities while trying to lead a 'normal' life.
Both are hilarious and are worth a watch if you are a fan of rom/coms.
Rosario though does have more fighting scenes and has a harem while Karin is mainly focused around Karin and her secret (reverse vampire) and realisation of love for Kenta.
