Most boring battle manga ever

Rating: 5.0 / 10.0
Seriously this author only good at drawing, aside from that probably some joke, but the rest is bland this should just stay comedic from the start to the end the fight is one of the worst feature, it always end up with same formula, Enemy coming, getting beat up easily, enemy power up or have other form, enemy dominating protagonist, protagonist have other form or getting power up, protagonist win rinse and repeat for every enemy. I think by the end even the author getting tired, some character died but seriously I have zero emotion, it feels like the author trying so hard to make it sad that it have opposite effect.

By the end the author try to make bad character look good(done lazily) but I stop caring long time ago, I just relieved it end.

You know the ending to that phrase.

Rosario Vampire Season II took the maturing characters from the prequel series and presented them with a new task: instead of learning to overcome their own struggles with friendship, they had to learn to overcome disagreements, test their friendships, and have each others backs.

Tall order!

The growth of the characters may seem stagnant when they stand shoulder to shoulder, but take a character on his/her own and you can see how far they have come, even with their quirks relatively unchanged. In this way Ikeda was masterful at characterization, using the hidden cues and slight changes mannerisms and thought processes to reflect on how far the characters have come..... and how far they still have yet to go.

The plot: Not as effective as the first season, but still impeccable. Each chapter is relevant, just like the previous series. After waiting a month for every chapter, me and my compatriots were never disappointed with filler or a lack of traction: development was everywhere, in characters, in romance, in story.

The last arc does get choppy and frantic, with fight after fight after fight after fight. But it serves as an effective coda to a story that had been building up the end of the first story arc of season two, where everyone gives more than 235% to play their part. Romance is pumped up on steroids, development is turned up to 11, plot burns faster than propane thrown on lava. After all of the drama, the ending is obviously going to be more of a whimper than a bang. After such a grand finale, the silence and stillness can appear disappointing, but you couldn't expect anything different. Although the lack of a definite romantic confirmation left things a tad bit open, it wasn't as bad as most people expected.

Throughout the story, the discussions and theories and predictions were numerous like the buffalo: There was so much to expect, to anticipate, that we were hanging on every issue, every piece to the puzzle. We were often off mark, a sign of a unique manga and a unique approach. Or maybe we were just dumb. Details and memories are fuzzy.

One thing that bears mentioning is the brilliantly created world that Ikeda sculpted creating both the first and second season, realistic despite the fact that magic exists. Many other series, even with magic and a different set of physics, often have inconsistencies or logical holes, while Rosario Vampire feels like a world teetering on a delicate balance, much like reality. This "Cold War" of separation and the belief of coexistence and reconciliation is a brave and relevant mirror to the geopolitical setting of our own lives. This realism is reinforced pretty well, although plot armor protects our protagonists quite well, there is no doubt that the threats that they faced were real and that they will remember these events, scars will remain (Tsukune is a notable example).

The characters are even better. Themes of rejection, desperation, hopelessness, play their part for every character in different ways, and they resolve these issues in various ways, either through self-introspection, communication, or intervention. Their relationships strengthen, and new relationships are made. The romance is kept very true, and it is a delight to see the romantic subplot continue from where it left off in the previous series to culminate in a rather stunning end, before being absconded for the epilogue. An end to the story that painfully drags you to want more, to want to see more. Alas...

It is over. The joy of waiting a month and thinking about what would or could happen has passed. The time for speculation and dreams have passed. Now you, reader, have the chance to enjoy the series in its entirety. I recommend you enjoy the panels like fine wine, sip by sip, picking out the thoughts and mannerisms of the characters, understanding how they justify and struggle with obstacles. You will be impressed by what you find, as long as you look closely (and with some patience). As someone who has spent much time arguing talking-points around this story, I have come to realize how well-portrayed and believable these characters are.

This is the manga standard for so many genres, from romance to supernatural to drama to school life, and is clearly one of the best series you will read. I hope this series will impact you as positively as it has affected me.

All that I have left to say is a word for Ikeda.

Thank you.

One of the weirdest fucking thing I've ever read

Rating: 7.0 / 10.0
The author pulled a Negima in this story by having a major genre shift from repetitive eechi/harem/bad of the week at school type story to...Well saving the world (Japan).

While it isn't particularly "bad", it's just something these characters weren't design nor suited for. Nowhere else was it more apparent during the later half of the manga (where it's trying to be super serious), yet the only charm this manga has remains the brief periods of humor that carried over from its original happy-go-lucky route.

By the end, everything unique about the characters established by the first series and first half of this season went straight out the window. Everyone just throwing their fists around, and those who were never good at combat became even more irrelevant, it's like watching Konohamaru's squad fighting during the Ninja War.

Draggy, repetitive plot. Stagnating character designs, and a truly lacklustre ending.

Wow. After TEN YEARS this manga ends...in one hell of a whimper. The series became such a bore near the end. So much melodramatic tears by EVERYONE in the cast from the wimpy "hero" to the antagonists, events and actions that feel recycled, seriously the final boss fight took way too long and had so many powerups by both sides. It was like watching naruto/bleach/dbz powerup progress condensed into a pill.

Bad guy: "This is my true form! Mwahaha!!!"
Good guys: "ZOMG WE HAVE POWERUPZ TOO!"
Bad guy: "Oh yeah? I lied about that being my true form! Here is the real one MWAHAHAHA!"
Good guys: "Oh noes! Well the power of love and friendship and rainbows combine to make us SUPER DERP STRONG!"

*Rinse and repeat for about 20 chapters.*

This is by far my favorite manga. The plot and art work have made me cry, jump for joy and have kept me up at night wondering what's next. My only complaint is that tsukene will end up with moka and kurumu will be alone. sad also mizore. If possible, id rate this manga higher than a ten

after reading chapter 62, the plot is rather hard to accept
tsukune was in critical condition, all of his companions had serious injury, the enemies got extremely stronger, and they had no time before flying garden collision with the surface.

This series was awesome. Like alot of other fans, I wish they didnt end with such a big cliff hanger, so so many unanswered questions. Furthermore its disappointing that Tsukune can't make up his mind on which girl to pick. Oh come on dude, be a man and pick Moka.

Season 2 failed in the starting....

Rating: 6.5 / 10.0
The way the second season was rebooted for the new semester,while re-introducing the old characters with new ones was too much generic. Fight against weak enemies in the start again and again....it became too much of a loope. The real plot develops after 30-40 chapters which is really annoying.

This is a spectacular manga, I've been a fan of R+V for about 2-3 years. It has a great plot, well-developed characters, and Ecchi/Harem. At first, I thought it would be like all out war in his group, the war over who takes Tsukune, but the author took their time to explain each character's background and interests as well as display Tsukune as someone who genuinely cares for all of the others. Hope everyone else reading this has enjoyed it as much as I. A definite 10/10 from the start and can't wait for next month's chapter.

Lost Potential

First season was good, fun romance/action/harem manga even with all the blatant cliches(really obvious and overused ones as well), but then this second season added more characters and tried to make a real storyline that turned out to be worse than cliched, it was bad. Still it progressed somewhat and then volume 8 onward came and it just became another mediocre manga with a crappy "save the world" storyline that hit some of the worst action cliches known. Not to mention the painfully slow pace it takes with everything. I've given up on this series about chapter 40 and unless you're really a massive fan of generic action mangas I advise noone to read past around volume 6-7. Disappointing turn for a once fun manga.
