Rosario to Vampire is a manga adaptation, a fairly loose adaptation but one none the less, originally written by Ikeda Akihisa.

What can I say about Rosario to Vampire. It was of the few ecchi anime’s I have ever watched and actually quite enjoyed. There was lots of panty shots and boobs. Boobs have a mind of their own in anime I swear. The ecchi in this anime was not necessarily tasteful but it was funny to watch. I also had the joy of censoring. Which put some funniness in it. The episode in Capu2 when the girls actually have long skirts on is fantastic. Just because a skirt is long doesn’t mean it won’t fly up still.

This is also a harem anime, with all the stereotypical characters. Just in supernatural form. Including loli witch, and ice cold, stoic ice queen and a bi-polar succumb.

The main character is the fairly standard human Tsukune Aono who somehow ends up going to the monster school. Sufficient to say, a lot of people want to eat him up alive. Still in manages to hide his true self for much of the series and chooses to stay at the Youkai school. Why? He has fallen in love with the pink haired Moka Akashiya who has two spilt personalties.

Moka Akashiya is a vampire, but there is a seal on her to stop her going berserk. Her pink haired persona is cute and sweet. Hates humans until she learns the guy she likes is one. Moka is not someone to be messed with because if the seal around her neck is removed (which only a human can do), her alter ego appears. Or maybe it is her actual self, it is hard to tell earlier in the series but as thing progress it becomes more obvious they they are as good as separate entities living in the same body. Vampire Moka has silver hair, red eye and is a bad ass fighter. She is aware of her alter ego and seems fond of her. Even asking Tsukane to be kind to her when they are fighting.

Moka also as a younger sister who appears in Capu2. Namely Kokoa. Kokoa hates normal Moka and Tsukane for being able to bring out the other Moka.  Kokoa loves and admires her older sister and dislike the soft thing which took her place once she was sealed. Kokoa does eventually warm up to Tsukane but it takes a while.

All in all, this anime has a lot of the standard harem cliques in it. And they work. This was a very amusing anime, even if there wasn’t must plot, if any for the vast majority or it. Ignoring keep Tsukane alive/ seduce him. So Silver.
