ahh they dont folow the manga xD
but its fine, it was a very good episode indeed
animation is good, they put the rubbing mina body with oil part
they create a memory loss into akira which is lame.. i guess
how can he forget about mina, that he is a werewolf lol wtf
so it may be acceptable if they change the story a bit i'll look foward to episode 3.

The OP was nice, matches the mood of this show. As for the ED I wish it wasn't just a picture of Mina. The episode wasn't too bad either, even though it's obvious now that it's not going to follow the manga. Oh well, as long as the show turns out to be decent it doesn't really matter. Wasn't expecting to see Akira transform so soon, that was a surprise ^^
This one felt like the true episode 1, unlike what we watched last week.

I still have hope they animate volume 5 of the mango D:. Cool episode, the action scenes were great to watch and of course the Mina and Akira interaction was really well made. Memory loss Akira not so much though...
I like the OP (Not my favorite of the season, but still nice)

This episode was crazy! Japan has gone far out in American terms but we here in Europe would tolerate this kind of thing more...we are after all more mature in history terms. Yuki introduction was great! I really like her face and hair arrangement=>
If there are guys who liked the exposure of that loli chicken breast, I'm really sure I never ever want to meet them.
Not me but fans do and I show the fans what they want so I am with the flat chest community but don't get me wrong as your friend....I just like them 18 but with a flat concept or at least not big like in Ladies VS Butlers
The ED animation is still as uninspiring as first. I'm sure SHAFT is trying to save money on that to use it on Bakemono. (Which is right about damn time now.) Not really any comments on the OP though, I liked the animations and appearances of Akira and Mina, which stayed constant during the whole episode. I especially liked both their glowing eyes and facial appearances. That was pretty smoothly animated, gotta give it to them.
Yes but also OP is well done with the Akira x Mina. I do agree with you on the animations and appearances of Akira and Mina being nice.
desolato said:I know they are supposed to be enemies.....that is strange so far but maybe logic will explain itself in all this.
For the rest I have no idea how they will develop the plot, it was nowhere the same as the last episode. The fact that Akira all of a sudden turns into a werewolf was kind of 'meh'.
EDIT: Wait, aren't werewolves and vampires supposed to be 'archenemies', or is that just a Twilight fantasy? If so, please don't tell me it's true, because then this may turn out to be yet another love story based on two polars. Because that's a thing I can't face. Reality isn't that pure.
Is this some kind of bad joke? so let me get this straight. Despite having only 12 episodes to air they set back the relation between Mina and Akira through the most overused cheap excuse called amnesia after that craptastic plotless filler of a first episode? Man this isn't doing much to increase my hopes of this being a decent adaptation.
Also WTF is with the crappy vampire real forms all the time =_= first a lizard now a spider =_=
at least some of the BGM's sound decent
Well I think the spider was better than the lizard to be honest.
kurropt said:Oh? Some people wanted this so I give it to them but it's their choice to be addicted to this kind of thing....I provide only.
I haven't read the manga, but revealing her body turned me off a bit ... even if she may be like 100 years old or something.

It was a lot better than the previous one, but it still has something missing... Hope the show gets better next week.

it was better than epi 1...
the bgm sounds nice tho..
I don't know, so far only hearing Nakamura is enjoyable for me. Somehow, it doesn't live up to my expectations. I don't know, the last few minutes felt extremely rushed to me. And Akira randomly flying nekkid with a loli in his arms made me roll my eyes xD
And seriously, just me that found this kind of ... creepy? ----->
No. Not only you. -shudder-

Huh ok..Mina is so weak..is she Mina? cause i never imagine the Queen of the vampire to be like that
Mina may be the Vampite Queen, yes. However, she's not emotionless. In fact, her tough exterior is what enables her to cope with the tasks she faces daily and the fact that a lot of people are after her life.
The flashbacks indicate that these two are childhood friends and that he vowed to protect her if the need ever called for it. Now that he forgot all about that or even who she really is (and what he is) makes her sad and to be honest, I can't blame her. Pretty sure any girl would cry over something like that.
And where is Mina's guardian?? she is the queen dammit, even my Town's Mayor always walking with his bodyguard all around, except when he went to toilet
Technically speaking, that role is Akira's. it's the main purpose of the clan he belongs to. Even with his amnesia, he instinctively knew he had to protect her and I'm sure she just put her faith in his hands, knowing he'd pull through in the end, even if the anime doesn't seem to make that clear.
Does this mean the anime will have more focus on Akira x Mina's relationship than the story of the Vampire Bund? I hope it doesn't become a let down series
The manga mostly delved more into their relationship as well, the whole deal with the Bund isn't mentioned as much as you'd think.
Anyway, SHAFT seems to have given it a more original spin, but so far, I'm liking it.
