Episode 01 — There’s no OP song! NOO! I watched this anime almost purely for the Nana Mizuki songs!
Anyways, the situation and set-up is pretty comedic, I can’t say I dislike any of it. However, I protest against instantly throwing our protagonist into love-polygon-world. Well, happens all the time in Japanese anime, but still.
Our female protagonist, Moka, 1000% channels Lala (ToLOVE-ru). Right down to the pink hair. Well, actually, I think Rosario came before TLR.
Wow, so many things happened in just one episode! Things are runnin’ fast in this anime! I like it!
First meeting? Check. School life together? Check, one day. Love confession, check.
And then throw in mahou-shoujo transformation scene and vampire beating up mean ugly ogre. And tie it up with a pleasant outro song. Not bad.
Episode 02 — EPIC NANA MIZUKI SONG
Episode 03 — Lol last episode the epic Nana Mizuki song caused me to forget everything I was going to write in my summary/review.
EH did I see GONZO somewhere in the opening credits? :OOO;;;
Her voice is cute, sounds like a mouse. Sendou Yukari. Where have I heard this :3
Our lead male protagonist gives out an extremely Tomoki (Sora no Otoshimono) vibe, minus Tomoki’s perverted tendencies. Well, he doesn’t give out a Tomoki vibe. He just…. actually he just looks like Tomoki and has some of the same facial expressions. Haha.
Wow, she’s a real mahou shoujo. .———–.
She just broke the fourth wall ~△~
If you’ve noticed, all the major characters introduced so far have the trait of being really lonely.
Oh, and I think I like evil!Moka better than normal!Moka. Oh, and Moka -> Mocha…
The narrator needs to shut up.
Tsukune’s Harem: +1.
I can’t wait until the character-introducing is over and we get into some of the conflict and ACTION!
Episode 04 — He needs some character development. As a human, he’s way too weak.
It’s probably going to turn out something like with Rito, just used as a gag plot and recurring joke.
“I will, one day, become strong enough to protect anyone.”
Yup, not gonna happen. Anyways… THE BUS DRIVER IS THE BEST CHARACTER IN THE SERIES SO FAR!! =D
that was semi-serious.
Episode 05 — Lol, you expect the bus driver to pull an “I AM YOUR FATHER!” or something out of thin air or something soon. ;D
Great insert song. Eh, the chibi’s wasn’t that nice.
Moka should do what that-vampire-queen-from-Dance-in-the-Vampire-Bund does and use water-resistant lotion/sunscreen.
Episode 06 — New character, Gin-senpai. He’s like Iago… epic framing and manipulation. And, on top of all that… he has an Osaka accent! =D
So evil though. Wahaha. And Tsukune.. he really IS Tomoki, to a T. And can’t the narrator shut up during the transformation scene yet?
Episode 07 — Kurumu is kawaii x3
The loli witch kind of pisses me off. She’s not that cute, and her voice is annoying.
This is interesting. She’s not in love with Tsukune-kun… she’s in love with the newspaper articles he writes XD
Hm, interestingly there’s only really one (well two if you count vampire!Moka) character out of Tsukune’s harem of (so far) 4 that I like. Tehe.
Episode 08 — Erm… whaaa… o———–O
“Yeah, come to my room tonight. I’ll teach you lots of things.” <— yeah great way to invite a guy to a study session.
Was this episode supposed to encourage teens to study and love mathematics? If I saw this and was bad at math, I would be permanently scarred.
They don’t have photocopy machines in this school? And… wow… the math teacher… … … yes, I think I’m permanently scarred.
Yeah, mind-control innocent students and force them to memorize math formulas. That’s so totally evil. XD
Episode 09 – end
The witch/Ruby arc really sucked. I can’t believe Moka is actually that weak… she has no special attacks or anything? All she can do is kick people really hard? Wow…
Suddenly this anime isn’t so appealing anymore. They could have done so much more with the premise…
The final arc, with Newspaper Club vs Heianbu, had a really heart-rending set-up. The way they treated our poor main characters was really well-done. It didn’t make me cry, but then again, the only anime that made me cry was CLANNAD, as far as I can remember. I don’t think I cried for Kanon.
But yeah, the set-up for the climax was great… but the climax. SUCKED. What the heck with Moka being so weak? And everyone getting beat up? And the conclusion… what? o_O
I’d give this anime a good rating for the Nana Mizuki song, but it wasn’t really that great. I liked much less than half of the characters introduced. (Compare to, say, ToLOVE-ru, whose characters I almost all liked.) Even ignoring the characters, the plot was not worth watching. Maybe I’ll give it an A+ or so, simply because of Dance in the Velvet Moon. [6.5/10]
