I think the whole point is that he's supposed to be incredibly annoying but entertaining to watch.

That's the problem, I didn't find him particularly entertaining either. Sure, any series can benefit from some tension between characters whose interests cross (two guys after one girl in this case, although Usui isn't even 'after' her yet and is just fulfilling the promise he made), but I think the tension has been handled badly by introducing a character such as Winner.

I dunno, maybe he'll grow on me in future episodes if he is toned down a bit, but it's unlikely if he stays as is though.

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
Winner was not funny IMO, he was more like..."lame".

Yeah, I guess I can agree with that, I didn't particularly like him either.

I can see why a lot of people think it was weiner Karin first bit, but it really doesn't make sense, unless he's changed a lot since then. After all, Karin is attracted to the blood of unhappy, depressed, people cursed with misfortune. Not exactly words that would discribe weiner.

Now I'm not saying it's impossible, as weiner could have been quite unhappy that he was leaving Japan, but it just seems unlikely. Plus, I don't think that's the kind of thing Karin would forget.

Sure she can forget; that was a while back, there was a lot going on back then, and who would think she'd meet up with him again like this (and he has changed)? And sure, she's attracted to unhappy people... now. But back then was her first time, when she was suddenly coming into the bloodlust, so she was just biting whoever was closest. They didn't discover her preference until the present action (remember from the first episode, she hadn't experienced the attraction to unhappiness before she met Usui).

As I talked about in the post linked above.

that's true but i like him because he brings a competition between him and
usi-kun which truly grabs my attention.

i hope that winner's love for karin will bring karin and usi-kun closer.

also i wonder if karin is ever gonna bite usi.

plus something interesting might just happen between maki and winner.

On that note maybe it's possible that Winner/Weiner became unhappy that he was leaving Japan and wouldn't get to see Karin anymore. His sudden unhappiness may have made Karin bite him, and having his true love bite him on the neck like that may have lead Winner to have his fear of blood.

Of course this is all assuming that is Winner in the flashback of the first episode.

Anju...I like Anju Anybody seen her bedroom? It's full of creepy Boogie (Bgle in other version) dolls in it. Anyway, all in all, she's the quiet type in the family.

I wonder...

A hyper Fumio(Kenta's mom) is cute.
A hyper Kenta... well if you want a hyper male lead there's already Winner.

Two hyper male character going at each other kinda spoils the show, no? :x

Hmm, true. Note to Karin: Don't bite Usui.

Unrelated note... Riker... Avatar... Hypnotizing...

You know, I was wondering why Fumio keeps getting harrassed. Don't her bosses know that she's married and had a son? I guess it doesn't matter, in a way, she doesn't look like a mom either.

Exclamation Sigh...

Okay: Sinclair Winner - utterly ridiculous. He's dressed up like a
metrosexual Neo from the Matrix series and women are falling all
over themselves just to get any attention from this guy.

Challenges our hero Usui to a duel of all things.

I think you hit the nail on the head when you say that he was the
guy that was bit in the first episode. But he's so egregious - he's not
who our heroine should end up with and I think she's already avoiding
him.

But what next? Is he going to escalate his attentions?

Loved Anju's brief foray into (quiet) laughing and Boogie-Kun
freaking out completely:
"Are you trying to make me laugh myself to death?"

Then Usui even laughs at Karin and her friend even giggles
"Even Karin has a boyfriend". Poor girl doesn't quite get the
respect you think she could command but I'm sure she'll get
her comeuppance.

My guess? If "Big W" (as I'm calling Winner-Kun) tries to pull
something questionable I think Ren will pay him a little visit and
make him pee his pants with fright.

Fumio is a widow, a young mom and a classic housewife. All 3 factors together are magnets for over the hill, middle aged men looking for an instant family

Maybe he was, but after being bitten people get energized for some time.
Ofc that's over now, but he dreams of Karin. Maybe the first bite a vampire gives is something special oO
I just think he changed. Maybe those dreams changed him to be a more energetic person. Dunno

I just think there's more behind Winner... if there's not, well that'd be boring D:
