Synopsis

The story continues where the first season left off only months into the future. Yuokai Gakuen has been repaired and the new semester is underway. Tsukune and gang are back, and more powerful then ever. Anti-Thesis's true identity is relieved. With new adversaries looming on the horizon, and something much more sinister then the gang has ever faced before.

Tsukune is battling with the monster inside him. With the help of Moka, Mizore, Kurumu, Ruby, and Yukari. Tsukune trains to get his vampire blood under control and the strength to protect what he holds dear.

The new season focuses more on the girls, their past, and their families. New confrontations await them. New friends and allies will join them by their side. Together they will discover the secrets of Moka's rosary, and her lineage...

It was a breath of fresh air when the Shounen Jump title Rosario + Vampire came out, bringing with it an interesting take on the harem genre, within a Monster Academy setting. But alas it came to an abrupt end, along with the Monthly Shounen Jump magazine. Fortunately it was popular enough to warrant a continuation in the form of Rosario + Vampire II.

Rosario + Vampire II being a Shounen, Supernatural, Harem manga, with a bit of Comedy & Action thrown in for good measure. Although this is technically a sequel, R+V II feels more like a reboot, as it re-introduces the characters and read more

Without a doubt this is a must-read manga, the story expands a lot to make a great action-ish manga to read but it had to tone down the ecchi/harem/romance from the first season to put in more of that sweet actiony goodness. The story is far more interesting then that of the first season with many new enemies and allies, I'm trying not to spoil anything for anyone who hasn't read this masterpiece, but if you haven't, WHY ARE YOU READING THIS REVIEW, YOU SHOULD BE READING THIS AWESOME LOVEY, ACTIONY, ECCHIY, HAREMY MANGA OF AWESOMESAUCE, go and read it now, trust me, you won't read more

I love that Rosario+Vampire gets progressively darker as the series goes on. While the first couple of books were just a generic harem comedy (but with monsters!!! omg), by the end of season I it was clear there was far more potential here than probably even the author initially thought.

Story: 7
Season II opens with the usual R+V harem hijinks, then gradually introduces some fun and interesting new characters. Not long into the story, the new main villain(s) begins to move into the picture. Akihisa Ikeda is continually experimenting with all different subject matter this time around; everything from class struggles to abandoned read more

Part two of the series is just as great as the first part maybe even a little better now. With each of the girls trying to get Tsukune to be there's with inner Moka (Her Vampire half) getting in the way of Tsukune trying to be with the other Moka. And with Moka's half sister Kokoa also getting in the way every now and again.

Recommendations

Manga: Zero no Tsukaima
Boy suddenly have to attend a supernatural school, with him being the only "human" there. He meets a cute girl and sooner or later they begin to like each other and so on...Rosario and Zero share almost the same amount of romance, action, ecchi, and comedy.

Manga: Girls of the Wild's
Both have a main protagonist who is weaker than the female leads. Both have harems, and characters who develop throughout the story because they want to do something. Both are amazing series, they both include fighting.

Manga: Claymore
Both have the 'fighting monsters of insane size and strength' going for them
If you like Blood and Gore
If u like limbs getting cut off
But in the end all amounts to an awesome piece of story and art!!

Manga: Mahou Tsukai Kurohime
Based in a supernatural world that both haves witches and other things, the main female character's extraordinary powers are suppressed but constantly released by the main male character in times of trouble.

The genres both mangas share are romance, comedy, kind of slice-of-life, and fantasy.

Manga: Tokyo Ghoul
I'll go against the tips and recommend only season 2 of RV as simular(and the second half of it). As the last ~15 chapters of R+V have a really simular feel as Tokyo Ghoul in terms of MC development(and appearence change, lol)

You get the same:
- monsters blending into human society (though in TG humans know about them)
- monster/ghoul organisation trying to overturn order
- wimpy MC becomes more and more badass (as turning into monster himself)

If you liked the change in R+V after FairyTail arc (into more dark and psychological). Then you'll probably like Tokyo Ghoul. The  read more

Manga: Witch Craft Works
Much the same in regards to supernatural beings such as witches, vampires, and monsters. Both involving school and romance not to mention the harem aspect, which brings about a lot of drama that escalates for the male protagonist. In the two manga's the female lead characters fight and protect the prominent male character from any danger that may come his way.
