I won't say anything about the episode since it hasn't been subbed yet, but it was really good. It covers chapters 8 and 9 from the manga, bringing us to the end of volume 2, so next week we'll start delving into volume 3!
There is one thing I didn't like about the episode and that was the animation...it was just really really weird looking at some scenes. Some scenes were great, but others were just...off.

EDIT: just saw the post above me from Mirakuru...looks like I'm not the only one who thought the animation was wonky!

I would've rated 10/10 if it weren't for the super uber crappy animation. What's up with this episode? I think the animation this time was worse than Itazura na Kiss. -_-

Either way, I totally enjoyed this episode.

Episode 6 was another good one, despite watching inconsistent animation in a Chinese sub that was small-format and based on a streamed original.

Put me down as one who likes the eroticism that the anime is emphasizing. Vampires have always been erotic. It's not as if this isn't present in the manga, but the animation is bringing it alive. As for whether it is weaker in the manga or not, click the image to go to a scanlation of chapter 9, which is covered in this episode.
Spoiler for image from manga of event in ep6:
The animation is definitely inconsistent. I checked the end credits, and the drawing is all done by Japanese names, but a company called "Golden Bell" is much involved in the animation. This may be Shanghai Golden Bell, but there is also a Golden Bell in Seoul, so I'm not sure whether it's Korean or Chinese. "Golden Bell" has been involved in such great shows as Eureka Seven, Noein, Honey & Clover and Chevalier D'Eon, however.

EDIT: I put the image in spoilers because everyone else seems to be using them, but since this thread is just for this episode, I don't really think spoiler tags for events in the episode are necessary.

I thought the episode was good.
And I was so excited to get to see my favorite part when
Spoiler:
My friend thought something else was happening between them lol xD

Yeah,the animation was a bit wonky [and funny looking] but it was still pleasing.

....and now seeing Yuki and Zero's master standing near eachother...I just realized how short she is O___o [her head like comes to his hip!!!! xD]

But I am satisfied
:]

Something about this episode seemed a bit off, and i am not just talking about the animation that took a nosedive. Yuuki's willingness to let Zero suck her blood came across as somewhat rushed - she made the decision too easily and with no apparent hesitation or being scared at all. Which might be fine, but the buildup for her resolve was sorely lacking. Same can be said about Zero giving in so easily. I feel that ep5 pool scene was handled much better regarding this.

Second is the drama concerning Zero ... it is exactly the same thing over and over again. I want to see something new on his front, because i feel this particular plot point has been stretched pretty thin as a drama source by now. Rehashing the same ideas and lines can be exciting only for so long. Hopefully the mention of that woman by his sensei (whomever he might be referring to) will bring forth something new for Zero to angst over. I suppose him ceasing to be a bundle of emo is too much to hope for though. Oh well. As a side note - Yuuki is starting to get on my nerves somewhat.


I am interested whats going to happen now though. Zero keeps sucking her blood on regular basis ? Well, i admit it seems like an immediate solution to his situation, but feels a bit cheap. There is also his approaching level E issue ... simply drinking the blood doesn't stop the degeneration as i understood, so i assume it is just a matter of time. Though the process seems awfully slow, so i guess they can safely ignore this part for now. Zero's situation with his teacher ended somewhat abruptly as well ... overall i think the biggest issue of the episode was the pacing - it almost feels like they crammed 1.5 episodes worth of character and plot development in to one, thus some of the critical moments felt rushed. Oh well, looking towards the next one.
