... then again, every manga out there has its faults. Don't forget, for all the other content in it, R+V is still shounen... so all the thousands of flaws that genre has are going to be found in this as well. Of course, the stuff that draws people to shounen (i.e., the fight scenes and some plot) is also in R+V... basically, if you like shounen, with fighting and a plot as well, then you'll like R+V. There's even quite a bit of romance in this as well

Lets not forget a remarkable cast of characters. All made of pure win. well... except Yukari... she's just kinda there for the most part.

True ture but people will get hung up on the faults if they are going to get hung on them in the first place, so it dose not hurt to moderate fanboy mode every now and then.

I dunno Rubi is a secondary character, Yukari is the main pedo bait of the series but frankly I think there's not much more they can do they treated her both well and respectfully IMO.

More story on Outer Moka and Kumaru past would be nice but I suppose they are pretty developed enough...hehehe.

Mizroe is shinning in the current archs, Kokoa got alot of story time, perhaps Yukari could use more story time, I always enjoy good backstorys.

Spoiler:


Something about two of my favorite anime's this year with the male main character acting stupid {Tsuk. and Harima} (Harima proper btw not the one on the forum )

I actually agree with Zippy. People going on and on about "Manga's betta!" Blah! Blah! Blah! I found it just as uninspiring and folks hyping it to ridiculous proportions.

I can't speak for others, and its merely my opinion just as everyone else is allowed to formulate such a thing. But, I've been keeping up with nearly every recent manga in the last year and R+V is IMO, the best manga to date. As the saying goes, "if you love something, express it." or something or another

It's not as though Inner is possessing Outer's body here...Inner has more than enough right to say whether she wants to be re-sealed or not but Tsukune just goes and decides that he's going to seal her on his own? That's pretty much a slap in the face if anything else.
No you're wrong, it's been a week -> it's not like Tsukune never tried to live with the new situation. I haven't watched ep13 yet, but I really doubt Tsukune would seal Moka by force.

Well, although the manga is good, it really lost its touch. I am starting to feel like they are running out of ideas...

How so? the most recent arc was completely epic with heart wrenching and edge of your seat events. (Continue through either the manga thread or by talking to me through the profile)

If anyone wanted proof that this series is just a way to make money, then all you have to do is watch episode 13. Such poor writing and INSERT SONGS. So many of them when they're not even needed.

I was hating on Tsukune quite a bit after episode 12, though i guess i should direct all my hate to the writers --- it was even worse in this episode. I've said it before how Tsukune basically just walks all over the feelings of the three girls, especially Kurumu after she saved him in this episode. The worst part had to be when Tsukune said that he can't decide which girl he wants me be with, i mean what? It's so damn 100% completely obvious that he only has feelings for Moka, and he gets away with saying crap like that. Another is Tsukune saying he loves both Moka's because they're the same person --- that's not what he was saying during episode 12. I'm not even going to start on Tsukune's Vamp powers just appearing out of nowhere.

That's not the way a harem series is handled.

I like this series when it's not like this. It's a fun cast and that's what has had me coming back week after week to watch. But seriously, if we do see a third series and it's like this again, i'm just saying no.

Gonna start on the manga like i said within the next few weeks.

I completely agree, the anime Tsukune is a complete douche, BURN THE BASTARD! and replace him with Epic Manga Tsukune.
