I have to agree here, we all have fang like teeth (they're called incisors if i remembre right), and in a lot of anime these get drawn really big for some reason.

His eyes were that color in all 3 episodes, so i dont think he's a vamp.

Also, he was just abandoned by his mum (hence his reaction to Hazuki when she told them of her mum's promise). She wasnt a vamp, since his grand pops admits that Hazuki is the first vamp he's seen.

My thoughts on this is that he's just a normal guy, nothing special, but he doesnt believe in ghosts and crap so they cant effect him any, or something like that. Course he's going to fall in love with Hazuki, there's been so many hints of that already hehehe

well, but in animes normal characters mostly don't have that kind of teeth... and even if he's really really dumb, I don't think being psychologically dumb can prevent him from being physically turned into a vampire

They keep making jokes about how dumb or thickheaded the guy is supposed to be, but I keep waiting for the term 'esper blind' to come up. Similar to a blind person being unable to see, an 'esper blind' person simply lacks the extra-sensory equipment necessary to interact with any part of a spiritual world.

I suppose you could argue that a vampire bite causes a physical change, so that he would be immune to the powers but not the transformation, but even then he wouldn't be able to use any of the powers either, he would just have pointy teeth, a reaction to sunlight, and maybe a desire to drink blood, although this particular setup seems to have that as a fuel for the powers rather than a life necessity.

And now I have put way too much thought into a show that really doesn't seem that complicated. If he is turning, I'm sure it will be made incredibly obvious over time.

Excel actually has one. Allthough I'm not that sure about her being normal, but I don't think she ever was a vampire.

well, I'd say Excel most definitely is not normal...

I LOVE Excel's pointy teeth (or just that I love Excel )

Excel Saga is not the only anime character that has a pointy teeth. And I did say 'one' pointy teeth. Tina from Ai Yori aoshi also has them. I think they're suppose to symbolize a wild personality, or so I've heard.

Nonetheless, the thickheaded guy happens to have two and they look more apparent.

Episode 4 just came out. I'm currently working on getting a raw that is actually good so that we won't have the fiasco we went through last time.

This show is getting better and better. I still have a problem with the show starting out dark, and then that OP, it's just not right.
In ep 4 the brand of Hazuki's bedwear is shown.

Yes, episode 4 is another good one. The alteration of comedy and darkness bothered me at first, but now I feel them emphasizing each other. Here are some caps, including one showing words on Kohei's bedding, one showing his teeth, one showing Hazuki in a new outfit, and one showing a new character.... I'm not sure they really spoil anything, but I've hidden them anyway:

Spoiler:
In the raw, recorded off TV Tokyo, it's interesting/chilling to see earthquake bulletins at the top of the screen.

considering they NEVER show him with fangs until the mom-cat jumps into his arms, there is reason to believe that there's something special with the cat, after all he only saw the mom after holding the cat (in the manga it's explained as some kind of "spiritual medium" thing)
whether he's affected by it or not, Hazuki put a tiny piece of herself into him when she bit him, and her mom probably partially awakened part of it so he could see her
or i, too, could be overthinking things (though i still don't think it's a coincidence since it ONLY happens while he's holding the cat)

Ok since I am feeling a bit jumpy today for no reason, I will spoil you all with the storyline of Tsukuyomi manga Vol 1-8 ^^

After the first eps, I went into hyper-search mode and digged out vol 1-8

It is a very good (and sad) story, the flow of this story really set into the moood. Also in the course of the manga, the drawing style improves by leapfrog. It is a joy to see You can't even tell it is original a dojinshi manga.

If you want to enjoy the anime the way it meant to be, stop right now .

Spoiler:

This spoiler ends at about the first half of vol 7. I don't dare to venture any further... If anyone is interested in finding out what happens on, just leave a msg (even though I would be already be soak in tomatos and rotten eggs for spoiling the story...)

Tsukuyomi meaning?

I was wondering what Tsukuyomi means. My dictionary says its the moon god which makes sense when I watch the op, but I see people spell it sometimes as tsukiyomi. Is there such a word as Tsukiyomi?
