I originally thought it should be Wiener, but his vampire hunter ID says Winner. Neither is a particularly good first name, so unless it turns our that he's from Vienna I'll stick with what it says. It's not like BGE, where there's no way that could have been right.

I got hook the first time I watched it. It's strange, Karin is the only one in the family that can go out in broad daylight, likes garlic, and the fact that she can't see at dark. Oh! and Anju is so cute!

Hmm, I missed that... Of course it's entirely possible the id was an engrish mistake. It wouldn't be the first time after all. Still, unless it's changed later on, I guess it is winner-kun.

Well, the introduction of Winner was... interesting. I do hope they tone him down a bit - or a hell of a lot actually - in the next episode or two. Otherwise he's just too over the top for my tastes, and I get the feeling that I will be starting to detest him very soon. Great visuals and voicework for both Karin and Maki in this episode! Maki's blush at the end is just TOO cute. Winner, you swine, if you hurt Maki's feelings I hope Ren, Anju and Boogie-kun decide to pay you a little visit.

Lastly, out of morbid curiousity - In the real world, how long would Winner-kun be sitting in jail for bringing a loaded firearm onto a high school campus in Japan?

Agree completely.

Karin is voiced by 18-year-old Yahagi Sayuri, in her debut role. Birth of a star.

Maki is voiced by Takahashi Mikako (Ayu from Honey & Clover). See my current avatar and sig (edit: now changed). She has got a lot more work since H&C, and will be the lead in the short anime Hanbun no Tsuki, starting in January.

Yahagi Sayuri (voice actress for Karin):

Karin's voice is really cute. It's probably one of the cutest voices I ever heard.

Anyway, I hate the voice they gave him: Not that its a bad VA or anything,
its just that the "fake foreigner" accent doesnt really do anything for me. It
doesnt sound like a foreigner at all to my ears, just like a japanese person
intentionally mangling their speech.

It is possible for actors to put on a passable foreign accent in English.
(Its not uncommon to have an actor with little or no prior experience sound like
they have a french or russian accent) I wonder whats hard about sounding like
a native english speaker who learned japanese...

I just saw episode #7 recently too. Winner can be funny, but I'm inclined to agree with Furudanuki about him. All that yelling and macho stuff will get boring to me pretty quickly unless something changes soon, heh.

Maybe it's not about flawed people, but of irony. I find this show highly ironic, and it is the reversal of expectations that makes this show interesting. This is the most enjoyable trait of the show for me. For example in episode 07, Karin's mom was narrating the scary tales of vampire hunters to the young Karin and Anju . I found the switch of traditional thought of evil vampires and benevolent and cool vampire hunters, to the seemingly positive portrayal of vampires and cruel vampire hunters in the anime very amusing. I grinned throughout that scene. The arrival of "Winner"-kun and his affiliation stirs up a bit more interest. Maki swayed by a crying man. Is she into sensitive and expressively emotional type of guys?

Winner is a bit wierd...well actually he is. And I thought he's the calm version type of guys...but I guess I'm wrong. Appearance can be deceiving.

I don't like the new character, I'll probably call him Wiener forever.

I also thought this kind of character was unwelcome in Daa Daa Daa... and this kind of character totally killed Pita Ten for me. I wish they hadn't'a brought him on.

His vampire hunter license says Winner... Of course it also says, "The above mentioned person it is person that it is as independent vampire hunter," so the spelling might be a bit off.

Ah, well, haven't got round to watching ep7 yet, so my comments were based on what I knew from eps 1-6. Should really watch ep7 soon And, how old is Anju supposed to be then? Anime always tends to be misleading with ages (girls tend to look older than they really are).

Winner is a wiener. And so far, he doesn't even seem to be a capable vampire hunter to spice up the plot. I mean come on, faint at the sight of blood? Pathetic.

Winner (or Weiner) kinda irritated me. A lot in fact. OTT characters in that particular style just don't do it for me. Hopefully he won't be such a dick in the next episode and onwards.

Well, Karin is one of the few series I'm up to. Usually I watch them only once finished, but if they're particularly intriguing I do follow them throughout the weeks (how painful )

Jumping on episode 7, I agree with people saying this Winner is a bit annoying, I didn't like him much. Fortunately he's funny to watch.
And also, I really like Karin's characterization and dubbing more and more every week, her seiyuu is doing great, I read she's a new entry, glad to hear.

Anyway.. topic moment of the episode.. Anju laughing .. she's just so cute. I hope she'll have the space she deserves, on the show
