Youkai Academy is a seemingly normal boarding school, except that its pupils are monsters learning to coexist with humans. All students attend in human form and take normal academic subjects, such as literature, gym, foreign language, and mathematics. However, there is one golden rule at Youkai Academy—all humans found on school grounds are to be executed immediately!

Tsukune Aono is an average teenager who is unable to get into any high school because of his bad grades. His parents inadvertently enroll him into Youkai Academy as a last-ditch effort to secure his education. As Tsukune unknowingly enters this new world, he has a run-in with the most attractive girl on campus, Moka Akashiya. Deciding to stay in the perilous realm in order to further his relationship with Moka, he does not realize that beneath her beauty lies a menacing monster—a vampire.

Rosario to Vampire is a supernatural school comedy that explores Tsukune's romantic exploits, experiences, and misadventures with a bevy of beautiful but dangerous creatures.

Rosario + Vampire is a very entertaining, cute, and at times comedic harem/romance anime. Unlike with most shows in this genre, the male protagonist has a rather commendable and likeable character, through his dedicated and loyal love towards his girlfriend and friends, resilient nature, and motivation to protect those he cares for. I like the show's themes of acceptance and friendship/love beating human or "monster" vices such as greed for power, bigotry, lust, etc. To me the show is representative of the inner "monster" in people that can be overcome by good. That said, every episode in this series has a very similar formula. It ...

Mixed Feelings
This review covers the first and second seasons of the Rosario+Vampire anime adaptations (second season is titled "Rosario+Vampire Capu2").

Rosario+Vampire is certainly an interesting anime in that it has a good premise and interesting characters and locations, however it is really bogged down by the 2000's fan service bug that was in nearly every romance (especially harem) series at the time.

Personally, this was one of the first anime series I watched in romance genre and I have a lot of nostalgia for it. I do really enjoy this anime and it's characters, however trying to put that aside, it is very flawed in many ways ...

I watched this relatively early on during my first proper exploration of anime [some time between 2008 and 2012?], before I had a handle on different genres. This may actually have been the first ecchi and harem anime that I ever watched, and like virtually all anime in those genres, it was fucking garbage.

Postscript: This website won't allow me to post this review until I add "more information" and offers several cues to that effect, so allow me to elaborate upon my above-outlined thesis:

"Is the story unique?"
The story was shit.

"Do you think the art style is fitting for the story?"
The art was mediocre.

"Were the characters ...
