I was just thinking how good this episode was when I saw the end credits, and realized that the storyboard was done by Gotoh Keiji, the well-known animator, and director of shows like Kiddy Grade, Uta~Kata and Gigantic Formula.

This epsiode was written by the main writer of the series, Okada Mari, who also wrote true tears and many episodes of Simoun. The episode director was Tsuchiya Akira, who did several episodes each of Ai yori Aoshi and Maburaho.
Spoiler for ep12 rough summary:
This is one of the few shows that makes my heart involuntarily beat faster from the start. Great use of music and good pacing in this ep.

By the way, it has now been confirmed that season two will start in October.

Spoiler for This Ep:


I saw in a past episode, where there were many flashbacks of Kaname... I thought he got treated like crap in his household back then? But he seems so composed at all times, and has the masterplan all set up apparently (collecting pieces at the Academy). I want to know more about him .

Great episode again. Honestly though, there were some scenes where I thought that the quality dropped dramatically. It ain't right for them to slack at the 2nd last ep! Maybe they plan to bring it up really high next week to make it seem even better. But it better be that or whatever else reason, Vampire Knight without quality isn't as enjoyable. Especially the last episode of the season..

I also didn't think the quality was that bad in this ep. I think it looked a bit different, maybe with richer tones of color, but not anywhere near as off-model as in some previous episodes (e.g., pinhead Zero). I imagined that some of the different look could be ascribed to the involvement of Gotoh Keiji. In any case, I'm one of those who doesn't get too bothered by what a show looks like, except in extreme cases, so it's legit that you may see it differently. I admire anime that can do things cheaply, but well enough, so that they can make more of the same.

I've been frequently disappointed with the character renderings throughout the series. Badly drawn faces in particular. However, I don't remember anything jumping out at me and yelling "UGLY!" during episode 12. Of course, your mileage may vary. For me though, I won't be dropping my grade a point because of horrible animation like I've done for some episodes in the past.

Cool episode, but makes me kinda sad to know that next week is the final ep in this season

Btw, I didn't quite get Kain's gesture towards Ruka? Was it like, please dance with me, or like, I'm saddened because you refuse to accept my feelings Either way it looked cool and the music went well with it too.

For some reason the link for Shokudan torrent download doesn't work so i didn't see the full episode. But for the scenes that I have seen I have to admit that I liked it and that I can't wait till October. This is cruel.

The scene where Zero shot himself on the leg, and then proceeded to shoot Shizuka multiple times is absolutely badass!

Because with a hottie like Shizuka(and Marie), the episode/art can't be ugly.

BTW, what happened to Marie?

haha what you mean? those scenes are my favorites!! (i guess you are not so much with this pair.

The animation quality from this episode was .... lame. And i dont like how they made the scene were Shizuka bites Zero.. in the manga it was a lot hotter... not my favorite episode... animation budget must be bigger when the series have this success... but it seems smaller...

I like this show, but the crappy animation is really starting to annoy me. It just looked like they weren't trying at all this time. And still, Yuuki is as weak and stupid as ever...

I'm having a bad day, so I'm being extra-critical. I still like Vampire Knight, even though it doesn't seem like it ~ !
