Finally, some good stuff. Is the manga even better? If it is, I want to purchase a copy.
Also, finally, the modified Shinboism is working.
(Note: I’ve stopped treating this show as the supposed mega hit of the season. Instead, I now see it as any other show)
It kinda sucks that Miha, the vampire guardian who can ikkitousen (defeat a thousand by herself) with candy, has to do give the talk for Akira to finally get it. But once that catalyst is added, he gets going. Or maybe, he suspected from the very beginning that something doesn’t add up and having Miha confirming his dark doubts really helps.
We also realize that yeah, Mina will do whatever is necessary to get her way, like a queen with vengeance. So for whoever that didn’t read the manga and thinking, nah, she ain’t gonna do nothing bad to the kid, well, I was just as disappointed as you. Then again, is becoming a vampire a bad thing in the story’s universe?
For now, that seems to be the case. Once you go over to the power of the dark side, you’re tempted to use it and pick on the weak. You’d even think that you’re superhuman. We all know what that sentiment has achieved throughout history. The result is often less than good.
I kind of thought that Mina’s the seiyuu’s voice cracked during the argument between Mina and Akira. But I liked the tension there.
That said, there is one thing in this episode that makes me go face-palm.
The students that stayed in the church are stupid enough to open the door. Oh boy. It’s like in the classic slasher films that the heroine is always smart enough to actually go investigate what’s going on. While that’s necessary for the thrill to happen, too many of these and it gets really tiring. That’s why so many films were made to make fun of that standard plot. Goddamn it, that made the end of this episode so stupid.
One last thing, if the vice president of the student council isn’t one of the bad guys, I will eat my cyberwords. But shit, he’s got to be one of them. Just a different type of monster that can’t be detected via vampire means.
Add some outstanding shinboism and this episode worked for me!

Just so you know, you can read chapters 1-33 of the manga online at OneManga.com, and also volumes 1-6 are out in the USA. It is considerably better than the anime.
As for the student council girl opening the door, yeah, it’s a dumbfook thing to do. She did that in the manga too. You always, always, always have to have at least one dumbfook girl on the team who gets the rest raped *shrug*. That’s a part of the horror genre too keep in mind, one emotional dumbass screwing everything up in the plan.
I’m hoping the anime gets a lot better tbh, cause right now, as someone who read the Manga first, I’m wondering what Shaft was smoking when they did this series ’cause it’s not as good as the manga by far. Too many changes, too many plot weakeners, and it’s being drawn out way too much. They’ve covered in six episodes 1.5 volumes of Manga (while skipping shittons of said Manga and inventing even more), and with only twelve episodes total and six left, they’ve got another 4.5 volumes to go. Congrats on wonderfully failed time management mofos.
That doesn’t sound encouraging at all. Maybe that’s why I’ve been feeling unimpressed most of the time.
Join the club.
The anime hasn’t handled EVERYTHING badly, but those of us who started with the Manga have had our faces planted firmly in our hands since the first episode.
Trust me, go read the Manga =)
Yes, read the manga! The anime is just a fudged up mess.
Will go check out the manga and then purchase a copy. In the meantime, I will still go through the show just for future comparison’s sake. Thanks guys for the info.
