It may have “vampire” right there in the title, but Rosario + Vampire is an awesome show for werewolf fans as well. I wrote about this quirky anime show over at Vampires.com and didn’t think to mention it here until I finished the first season and got into the second, and realized that the werewolf of the show had become a regular character.
“Tsukune’s terrible grades stick him in the only school that will take him. To his mortification, all his classmates are monsters and if they figure out his human status, he’s fresh meat! But when his scent attracts the hungry lips of a gorgeous vampire named Moka, it turns out he’s a sucker for supernatural chicks. Before long, Tsukune is being seduced by a bouncy succubus, tormented by a witch who swings both ways, and felt-up by a stalker snow fairy. Moka doesn’t mind sharing with her new friends, but her panties get in a twist when real danger threatens her boy-toy. Beastly bullies beware, because when Tsukune unlocks Moka’s supermonster seal, a ravaging beauty with a dropkick from hell is revealed!”
The official plot description makes it sound like it’s all about the vampires, but I assure you, the werewolf character eventually becomes a regular seen in nearly every later episode.
Now, you may be wondering what I was referring to when I wrote “pervy” in the title. Well, Rosario + Vampire is a perfect example of anime fan service – lots and lots of gratuitous boob close-ups and upskirt panty shots. Full nudity even becomes a common later on into the show. If you watch a lot of anime then you know all about this, it’s done a LOT in naughtier anime movies and shows. Plenty of hot anime chicks with huge boobs and super short skirts. Based on that alone it’s clear that Rosario + Vampire is not a brilliant show packed full of depth and intellectual thought. It’s hilariously silly, it’s campy and amusingly naughty.
The show is just ridiculous enough to amuse me. Watching it may make you a little dumber, but it’s super entertaining, so it’s worth it.
If you’re looking for a fun watch that’s a bit dirty, then I suggest checking out Rosario + Vampire. It has a highly entertaining storyline that features a wide assortment of supernatural beasties, including werewolves.
Here’s the DVD trailer, which shows you just how silly this show is.
Have any of you watched Rosario + Vampire? Did you find it as amusing as I did?
Season 1 and 2 of Rosario + Vampire is available on DVD and on Netflix.
