Let the fujoshis hope all they want, it is still Shounen so they will never get what they want, and the author isnt such a tease that he gives Shinoa X Yuu so many moments and then just sink the ship, the moment Shinoa realised she is in love with him(probably last episode of Season 1 in the anime if they keep up this pace) the ship is canon,but as a protagonist he cant realise it yet so we must wait.

It's still Shounen so the MC is shippable with almost every character. I never said Shinoa x Yuu is impossible nor it'll go the yaoi route.
More importantly,why is there a need to ship Yuu with someone? Teases there and there will always be with any other character(for example Kimizuki). The story doesn't even focus on romance after all.



I can see Yu developing feelings as he breaks more and more out of his shell.
either way, I think that's what I'm looking forward too the most, to see how each character grows up

Nah, that point was dropped, there won't be love triangle between them.

So I just came back from watching Fate/SN UBW and all I have to say is that maybe I'm biased 'cause Fate has some kick ass battle scenes, but this episode of Owari featured some really weak sword fighting. I don't know, the action scenes aren't really action packed and it's kind of boring. I wonder is this series will have a second cour since we're on episode 8 and practically nothing regarding the "seraph of the end" has been revealed.

Boring episode. All of the characters still act the same as they did when they were introduced, no development.

Animation = Meh... Didn't look good. The fights weren't cool

Music = Meh... It didn't even play in some fight scenes. I expected Hiroyuki to make some memorable OST, but so far.. I don't like a single one which pains me to say. This is the first OST he's made that I don't care for.

Setting = Still boring.. Just destroyed buildings.. No color at all.

Just when I thought this show is getting slightly less cliche...

This is literally the first time I complain about a fight scene. Neither humans nor vampires showed anything good. I'd forgive that waiting until protags finish their lines and casual talks, since it's really common in shounens, but all that checking each other out for like 5 secs before acting? It's ridiculous. I just can't take that anime seriously.

Crowley gave off an accurately intimidating aura, and finally Yuu realizes just how big a gap there is and how important team work is. I wonder if he'll get any credit from anime onlies here for his development once the cour is over?

Really like this episode. Loved Shinoa when she tried to drive the car.

Looks like the vampires are pretty op themselves... but our MC is even more op.

Boy, that vampire sure took his time with Mitsuba. Basically was asking to be fodderized.

Enjoyable enough episode for me despite that gripe. I did particularly like Yu's line about humans. Shinoa trying to drive was quite funny too.

Also, just noticed that Kimizuki has the same seiyuu as Kageyama; that makes things more enjoyable for me too.

Now we have two female characters who have an interest in our MC - a blond tsundere and a pink-haired bitch. To what will it lead to?

Also, the scene when Yu was driving the car was funny. But not hilarious.

And I'm still waiting for Mika and the Vampire-Loli-chan.

And in the next episode of Shingeki no Vampire, we will see a proper, big battle. Can't wait!

Yu is starting to mature a little more, which is good considering I didn't really like him much as a main character. I really wanted to see an epic fight against Crowley though. Hopefully we'll see one eventually....

Lol at that car scene...and wow, Crowley is voiced by the same guy who voices Murasakibara from Kuroko

Their relationship does get better in the manga as it progresses and it's not like i just want to ship it, i know they will ship in the end, having read all of this author's works this is his pattern, watch densetsu and u will see my point, yaoi is out of the question cause its shounen that was my point, sure there is a 1% chance he will not ship with anyone in the end but except if 1 of them dies 99% chance is shinoa so i will just sit back and wait till that. It's not like im watching it just for that anyway

*sigh* Yes everyone lets wait for Yuu to finish his long speeches before all of you get fodderized.

Nothing important happened in this episode like what the fuck? Ffs what's with this slow pacing? The only thing that's WORTH mentioning is the introduction of the new vampire that conveniently left before ending the fight because of "reasons".

Just realized that they changed the scene where Yuu impressed Crowley....In the manga, his hand got cut off but in this he only got his sword deflected =/

Anyway, it was still a great episode....Next week will be even more happy and I think that we'll get introduced to Guren's squad as well and maybe see Mika too

Woo, MC has only started yet he's like 10 times better than his squad-mates. Now that's what you call Plot Armor, kids. They even cut out that part of the extermination segment, too. I don't know if that's how it was in the manga but here it just screams "We lack the monies."
Why do people have such bad taste? Anime isn't subjective anymore.

What could happen if Yu hears any vampires says "Mika"? It will be an awesome moment. I'm waiting! I guess it will happen anytime in the show.

come on, guys. the fight was terrible, the guy holding mitsuba did nothing, he just died like a retard. MC is a little less annoying, but his OP status, with girls falling for him one after another (like a lot of other MCs) is ridiculous. The art and music is not enough to keep watching this if story or characters doesnt get better soon

The gap between the anime's pace and the manga's one is huge... While the manga is kind of fast paced yet very well balanced, the anime drags on for too long. I think they're trying to focus way too much on the characters development and relationships. They could have coupled at least the three last episodes in one.

With this pacing, I'm kind of scared that, like someone else said


TLDR Too much focus on Shinoa's squad, though they're very funny.

Shinoa getting teased for a change was lovely to see, specially on her weak point, LOL!!

I enjoyed the mission so far, they're developing teamwork and it is displaying well so far.

Just when everything was turning good we get to see a very powerful vampire and voiced by Kenichi Suzumura (YES JUST YES!!!!).

That was a good action ride =)

Lol why did that girl (Mitsu I think) even need saving?! She could have called up her weapon, which appears out of thin air, and just slashed the vampire's arm. It's not like her hands were trapped. They just wanted to show off the MC's skills. Lame.

Also, I can't believe these people are part of an 'army'. Rule number 1: scout the enemy's territory/perimeter instead of just blindly walking into an open room. It also didn't seem like they made any other battle plans other than 'let's go exterminate the vampires!' Well, okay, Mitsu girl tried to make a plan once they were already in enemy territory, and on the 4th floor where the vampires were *face palm*

The first half was awful...

I feel like they could've done much better if they'd sped things up a bit in the first half or at least make some of the actions believable (I mean, I'm sure the first vampire Yu killed only got exterminated bcos Yu was really fast and it was dark and he was unsure what was going on, but the way the anime made it seem, the vampire was deaf and had nonexistent reflexes because it seemed like he very clearly noticed a bunch of vampire slayers, heard the leader scream prepare for action, and watched a kid run a few dozen yards, and did nothing but stand still and receive the sword, really? This guy was supposed to protect his livestock from those four horsemen monster thingys???.

The other guys were almost useless, mainly just stood around with big eyes. And Mitsuba's so pathetic. Getting flustered so easily in a fight and almost getting killed bcos of it... And let's not forget how ridiculously retarded that vampire who took Mitsuba looked...

Only parts I enjoyed somewhat after that were the scenes involving the car. At least I got a smile frm that.

Fight with the noble was far more satisfactory despite less action. When Shinoa and co started getting serious, it actually looked pretty cool for a moment... was actually pretty disappointed there wasn't a longer exchange of swords...

It was good hearing Yu finally admit there are times to retreat and I guess it was nice finally seeing Yu get a glimpse (again... -_-) of how important teamwork is...

But I don't feel satisfied with his growth. I think he still needs a major dose of reality...

edit:

additional rage: Mitsuba on the whole just really annoys me. Not only is she an outright tsundere who blushes at every moment she's in front of Yu and screams I hate u at every moment, she's also a pathetic leader.

I find it stupid that she allowed herself to believe the info she was given was absolute. She was flabbergasted when she got caught. Jesus, you'd think she'd be wiser, especially since she was talking all big in the previous episode for knowing the little girl running was a trap.

It seems like in the beginning they had the upper hand. Until more vampires showed up...

I was curious to see how things turned out near the end--I was hoping to see more action, oh well.

The episode was great, I'm certainly satisfied with it.

Even with many cliches in this episode, I think it was still enjoyable. The only thing I'm not really liking is that the normal vampires are way too weak. It only takes one slash and they're done for.

Well, one Noble vampire showed up and he seems quite intimidating. Crowley is already a much better villain than Ferid. I hope he doesn't get owned soon.

Average episode. Shinoa continues to be amusing with her dialogues. For once, it was hilarious to see her being made fun of.

Reunion is soooo close I can already feel my tears. Actually this was the worst episode so far but still fantastic. xD BUT wtf Mitsube, now seriously. Yu saved her life and she couldn't even say thank you moreover she said she hates him. Okay I know she is a tsundere but now she was just a complete jerk. I'm really not happy because as I see Yu x Mitsube will be THE ship, but meeeeeh... This girl was okay at first but now she is too much!
Shinoa is still the best girl and the biggest troll :D And the car scene was hilarious. xDD

Goddamn it. The first part of the group versus the vampires was awful. So anticlimactic . They went cheap with the animation and just fast forwarded.

AND WHY DIDN'T CROWLEY'S ARM FLY OFF LIKE IN THE MANGA!?!?!? SHET! THEY'RE CHANGING ELEMENTS OF THE MANGA AGAIN.

The action is somewhat lacking if I do say so myself.
Going on a new mission and meet a super strong vampire(a noble).
Crowley is such a lucky guy...got two HOT vampires chicks to himself.

Wow. That fight against the 8 vampires was Twilight-level lame. Like holy shit. 1 asspull per series is enough to kill it and they just pulled, what, 3 or 4 in 10 minutes?? Even with Shinoa's scythe, it's becoming harder and harder to watch this.

Even in the latest chapter of the manga Yuu is still not strong enough to take on a noble by himself. Crowley is the 13rd progenitor meaning that there are twelve vampire that are stronger than him and he's strong enough to decimate a team made of top fighters from the demon army.
Although it looks like Yuu and co have a easy time farming low level vampires, humanity is on the losing end so bad it's not even funny

As Shinoa said, Yuu will learn curses in due time and tighten the gap between him and progenitors.

Cool stuff. Liked the action, just wish it lasted longer. There was a nice track accompanying the emotional scene with Yuu and the girl.

Shinoa remains best girl.

Pretty cool that glasses can hot wire a car too.

Next week is looking even more action packed.

I don't think I said anything that was spoiler worthy.
If I says that Mika and Yuu will meet at some point in the story, although it didn't happen yet, would you consider that a spoiler? There are ways to write something so that people who haven't read the source material will not be able to get until the said thing happen, in which case you cannot say you spoiled it. In every episode discussion I've wrote in I've been carefully selecting what I says, putting what should be in spoiler tag in a spoiler tag.
