The cast for R+V is perhaps the best this season. It managed to put together Mizuki Nana, Kugimiya Rie, Inoue Kikuko, Hisakawa Aya, Saeko Chiba, Tomokazu Seki AND Takehito Koyasu. Not to diss the other VAs who has done good work in this show too, but the VAs mentioned are some of the best and most recognized names in the seiyuu industry.

Add in awesome music and voicing by Mizuki Nana, and R+V is actually pretty good, good enough for me to think that 13 episodes does not do it any justice.

This needs a second season.

Heh, never thought I would be saying that when I first started the show.
A second season is possible, but I am afraid, there wouldn't be any plans for one

(I love how they managed to have Mizore appearance that early, nice one )

PS: VA, I must agree.

Episode 10 was trash. They completely ruined Ruby.

In any Anime from Manga, 90% is not happy with conversion.

To me episode 10 was great, lots of action, good animation and script.

Ruby make a amazing intro in the series.

I have a special drop to Kurumu, and, in this episode she make my day.

I'm still bemused at the addition of episode 4 which was just filler. Apart from seeing True Moka slightly flustered at wrongly assuming Tsukune was leaving it was a worthless episode. That episode would've been better spent on the painting chapter which loosely ties into what will be the ending arc for the anime.

Still I really want to see chapter 23 animated so I hope they get the go ahead for a sequel in Summer or Fall.
I find the character design to be one of the anime’s best features. While the animation itself is good if not decent, there isn't many harem anime that I've seen with better animation than the one shown in Rosario. I’d have to admit the background for the show is something I look more forward too.

Lol, In worst case scenario Episode 4 could have been Kurumu stalker chapter animated, which I dare say episode 4 of the anime is better than that chapter.

I do find it annoying how people like comparing Gonzo work to the original source material, they probably make more blunder then other studio to be remember but there’s a little injustice here, as by far there are many other studio who also do sloppy adaptation. The main issue with animating a well known manga than compare to light novel is the difference in the audience perception of the series. I like using the phrase “Ignorance is bliss” as J.C staff comes into mind with Zero no Tsukaima, Studio Deen Fate/stay night and Xebec Love Hina. These shows are enjoyable judging it base on its own merit but when compared to the original source it is appalling.

I just watched ep 10. Well, they sure deviated from the manga quite a bit, but the episode is still enjoyable. Action packed nearly from start to finish, with a good dose of fanservice. I like that!

Even from an anime viewer's perspective it wasn't good at all so I can only imagine how you must have felt seeing the original source being crushed.

Spoiler for Ep10:
Definitely don't like to put judgments on groups without cause. Know Gonzo can do good jobs and other groups have had problems as well. But just hope they can take more care. Nothing is perfect, but giving some effort for that wouldn't be a bad thing.

Not hanging anymore...

Where to start?

This episode (10) felt rushed from start to finish.

I haven't read the manga but it was clear Ruby's character was not developed well. The random appearance by Gin at the end was just silly. Why would he be on the bus with Ruby if he just came from the sea where he found her? Why was he by the sea in the first place!? There were a million different scenarios possible for reintroducing her, but this one has to be the worst.

Don't even get me started here. How does Tsukune go from practically dead to not a scratch!? What happened to him was bad enough to make make Mokka transform without removing the Rosario which in itself is a pivotal moment in her character development. Important as this all is, I was expecting at least something like a flashback to explain it, but we get nothing.

There was significantly more combat, but the plot suffered heavily because of it. Now I don't expect much of a plot from this series so that's not what bothers me....it's the fact that last episode they proved there was potential for depth but didn't follow through.

Okay, first let me note I have no knowledge of the manga. I just came into the anime and rather liked it.

That said, WHAT is going on with episode 10??? Did the budget get cut to pieces somewhere between episode 9 and 10? "Well, guys... popularity of the show has gone down, we just aren't making enough from comercials... you used up a lot of our budget on time so far, and you have lots of action planned for episode 10... you've got to spend about 1/4th the time you usually do on episodes to crank this sucker out..."

The animation quality was cut (for example, look at the active animation of Moka in vampiress form! The quality of the character's animation, drawing, etc is cut from previous episodes- less details, and for it to be so shockingly clear to an untrained eye like mine... that's bad). They 'cheat' the whole episode- constantly focusing on objects/background rather than the characters or movement, showing 'slideshow' stills rather than any kind of animated action. While characters are talking, they find excuses to cut away... yes, all anime's do this at times, but they did this SO MUCH this episode, it horrified me. None of the previous episodes hit me like this.

Add that to all the drawbacks mentioned above regarding plot, development, and dissapointment after the potential of episode 9... it makes me wonder if they even plan to keep this show going all the way to episode twelve or thirteen. Or if they are, will it even be worth watching if they've cut the budget and quality this much?

This scarily reminds me of a previous manga-turned-anime I got into, where throughout the length of it the budget was obviously cut- quality dropped, 'still' figures were used more and more, and less detailed characters... it was awful. It almost wasn't worth watching the rest of the anime. If they do this to Rosario, an anime that has actually grabbed my interest, I will be woefully dissapointed. I certainly hope they redeem themselves, or they'll loose me due to a single crappy epsode.

Maybe the producers will follow a Tenjou Tenge (open ending / go buy the manga if you wish to see what happens next) manga teaser anime.

This is my reaction upon watching episode ten.

Guys, I don't know what they did with the animation staff for this episode, but it looked like they borrowed all the staff who work in Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann to produce this episode.

The fight was visually exorbitant and insane. I really didn't like how my Ruby-chan's face got all twisted and literally black after losing her marbles. That was scary.

Spoiler:


Poor Ruby, but I'm glad everything turned out okay.
