The Plot

Kiyo Katsuragi is a young girl still attending school, when she is about to inherit her grandmother’s mansion given to her mother. When she enters, she finds out she is also living in the mansion with two vampires, Kuroboshi and his servant Alsh. Things get even crazier when Kuroboshi decides to make Kiyo his “bride”. A vampire’s “bride” is a female human who will become his only source of blood. Even though Kiyo seems to like Kuroboshi, she gets embarrassed when he tries to suck her blood, which is a problem for Kuroboshi.

Then, Kiyo’s childhood friend tries to stop their growing affection, because he is afraid that Kiyo will be tainted by the vampire. Kiyo is then told that if she wants to be with Kuroboshi forever and be his bride, she will have to kiss him. There is one side effect—she might turn into a vampire herself.

List of characters

Kiyo Katsuragi A young girl who inherits her grandmother’s old mansion. As soon as she moves in, she finds out that there are two vampires that already live there: Kuroboshi and Alsh. At first, Kiyo and Kuroboshi’s relationship was a flirt-and-hit relationship, but later on in the manga, Kiyo slowly starts to have feelings for Kuroboshi. Kiyo is a very nice and trusting person, and she often helps out her friends. This confuses Kuroboshi, but it makes him admire her more. Later on, she decides to take on a part-time job to earn some money since both Alsh and Kuroboshi are unemployed. Her feelings for him flutter from admiration to annoyance and then to a bit of a crush. When Sou-kun returns, she feels that she must hide Kuroboshi’s vampiric nature from him, especially since his sword can already detect evil auras. However, this causes Kuroboshi to grow jealous and eventually leads him to bite her. Sou-kun witnesses this and finds out that he is a vampire. She does not feel anything toward Sou but friendship, and when she is ready to accept the position Kuroboshi’s bride, Sou-kun warns her that there is a chance she will become a vampire if she does. This makes her very unsure and thus, Kuroboshi thinks she does not want to stay with him. He ignores her until the play, when he confesses his true feelings. Kiyo is touched and she kisses him right then, sealing their bride contract. They end up together, but Sou still promises to be her guard since Kuroboshi is so weak – being only hit by the back of his sword and being unable to walk afterward.

Kuroboshi a young dhampir (half-human, half-vampire) who lived in the old mansion Kiyo inherited. As soon as he sees Kiyo he starts flirting with her and calling her his “bride”. It is unknown at first if Kuroboshi really likes Kiyo for herself or for her sweet blood. Later on, he is very jealous if Kiyo is near any guy, or if anyone is being mean to her, he retaliates quite fast. He also likes to suck Kiyo’s blood (although he does not succeed very often). As the series progresses, his feelings are declared to be serious. When Kiyo is unsure of how she feels about him, he becomes angry and doesn’t talk to her till the play. Then, in front of the audience, while in the middle of battle with Sou-kun, he wholeheartedly declares that with all his body and soul, he loves her.

Alshu a vampire who is serving Kuroboshi. He is very carefree and appears only moments before Kuroboshi and Kiyo are about to kiss or propose to each other. He also has a violent side, only provoked if someone attacks his master.

Minako Kiyo’s deceased grandmother who took in Kuroboshi and Alsh when they were wandering and homeless. She is said to have given Kuroboshi the feeling of ‘warmth’ during his childhood. Kuroboshi was ostracized by the vampires because he was a half vampire, half human. Minako-sama was hinted to look somewhat like Kiyo herself, and also have similar personality traits.

Sou Mizukami Kiyo’s childhood friend who trains in the mountains. He came down from his training to meet Kiyo once again this time to protect her. This is because in the past, he was a cowardly boy always having Kiyo repel evil spirits (exorcism). He then admired her strength and vowed to be stronger in order to return the favor. His sword detects any evil aura- and sure enough, whenever Kuroboshi is around, his sword detects it. He proclaims himself Kiyo’s bodyguard when he learns that Kuroboshi is a vampire. He fights Kuroboshi during the Romeo and Juliet play, and he still claims his position as bodyguard because he claims that Kuroboshi is weak.

Hi, world!

It was somewhat a good day. I woke up at quarter to eleven, late for me. :]] But, I don`t have school, so that means I can wake up late. I ate an youghurt, `cuz I was too laz to eat somethin` more complex. xD After that, I have a walked in the house, without a real reason. At noon, I ate mushrooms. They were really good. After that, I stayed on the computer and I chated with some friends [ and with another person, but I`m not gonna say more, `cuz Appy – chan will think that I`m more than in love… ops! I actually say something, but I`m stopping now. D: ]. Whateva`. At about… um… half past seven, Aya came to my grandparents` house and we talked about manga and things like that. She borrowed me Ouran nr. 1 in french and I borrowed her Rosario+Vampire nr. 4 in english. Now, I`m reading from Ouran and my french is really good [ and I`m not talking about the `french kiss` :]] ]. I`m chating on messenger with some friends : my Berry [ which is so sweet, and I really love her <333], Teh [ she`s great ] and Mely – chan [ a sweet girl ].

Bye, ppl!

Hugs from Nya.

My opinion about this anime / manga.

•2 February 2010 • Leave a Comment

Well, I found this anime in august 2009. I really like it, `cuz the story it`s very active, let`s say. :]] And I like how Moka looks like when she is a vampire. She seems so cold and I think this is really great. I also like Ruby, the witch, who started to appear in the fourth manga. In october I started to read the manga and I realize the differences beetween the manga and the anime.  But I really hate Kurumu and Yukari. >.< They`re so obsessed. -.- In conclusion, my opinion about Rosario+Vampire is a good one. :]]

The Story.

•1 February 2010 • Leave a Comment

Tsukune Aono is a normal high school freshman who is unable to get into any private school, due to his dismal grades. The only school he is finally accepted into turns out to be a secret school for supernatural monsters and mythical creatures (yokai), who are disguised as humans. He quickly becomes friends with the beautiful Moka Akashiya, who turns out to be a vampire attracted to the sweet taste of his blood (and Tsukune’s only, it turns out). While at first Moka was upset upon discovering that Tsukune was actually a human, she realizes that he’s the first real friend she had ever made. Tsukune quickly realizes his admission into a monster school must have been a mistake and fears for his life.

Despite Moka’s vampiric nature, she is a kind girl and Tsukune quickly falls for her. Moka also quickly falls in love with Tsukune after they meet. He decides to stay and be near her, despite the various dangers. He must hide his human identity from the faculty and other students, while trying to keep his grades up and avoiding conflicts with the various not-so-mythological monsters lurking around campus. Tsukune soon discovers that when he removes the “rosario” around Moka’s neck, she transforms into a super-vampire, stronger and more powerful than almost any other creature at the school. However, in this state, she has an entirely different, often cold and merciless personality, so the rosario is only removed in dire emergencies. Tsukune is the only person who can physically remove it to transform Moka, and only in the case of an emergency (the rosario remains physically bound to Moka, while Tsukune attempts to willfully remove it in a moment immediately preceding, and sometimes interjecting – a malignant situation).

As the school year continues, Tsukune becomes involved with other students who start out as enemies but who are won over into becoming his friends Kurumo Kurono, a succubus who originally fixated on Tsukune as both a means of propagating her species and a weapon against Moka (whom she originally hated for attracting all the male students away from her); Yukari Sendo, an eleven-year-old witch who is the smartest student at the academy (but prejudiced against by the other students since witches are not truly considered monsters, but somewhere between monsters and humans) who developed a major crush on Moka, and a softer crush on Tsukune after they defended her against a pack of bullies. Ginei Morioka, a second-year student who is not only the President of the school Newspaper Club but also a werewolf and a pervert who can’t understand why Moka is attracted to Tsukune and not to him; and Mizore Shirayuki, a yuki-onna who began by stalking Tsukune believing them to be soulmates. However, after Tsukune befriends each of the girls, they become friendly rivals along with Moka for Tsukune’s affections and members of the school Newspaper Club with Tsukune and stand by him even after they learn that he is really a human. Introduced in the second manga serialization, Kokoa Shuzen is the younger half-sister of Moka Akashiya. Bearing a similar appearance to Moka, except for her orange hair and cyan eyes, she arrives as a first-year student to Yōkai Academy. Like her sister, Kokoa is also a vampire, but her powers are not sealed and does not carry the same supernatural strength Moka possesses. To compensate, she has a pet bat, Kou, that can transform into a variety of weapons. She has a deep hatred for Outer Moka and an obsession with Inner Moka. In the manga she finally accepts the fact that her “real” sister is sealed, though in the anime she is more persistent. As time goes on, they discover dangerous organizations like Antithesis and Fairy Tale and must do battle against them to keep the school and even both the monster and human worlds safe, and Tsukune starts to undergo changes that truly solidify his role as the link between the human and monster worlds.

Heya, ppl!

I`m at my grandparents till Thursday. It was a really good day today. I woke up at… half past nine, then I had breakfast. I played on the computer, after that, but I was sad, `cuz the best forum ever is close for a few days, but I talked with… well… someone. D: The morning was really boring. The noon was quite good. I ate spinach and fried egg [ I don`t know if I wrote good ]. After that, I watched TV all the afternoon. At about six o`clock in the evening I went at mall with Aya [ a friend from here ]. I bought the book `The Host` by Stephenie Meyer. I can`t wait to go to bed to read from it. When we [ me and Aya ] were on the way home, Aya pushed me in the snow. When I rised, she wrote with her finger in the snow ` Nya`s Bottom 1` and then she pushed me again for two times and she wrote `Nya`s Bottom 2` and `Nya`s Bottom 3`. :]] I so love Aya, she`s great. I can`t wait to see her, again, tomorow. ^^ Now, I`m talking on messenger with Appy – chan, the best girl ever, and one of my classmates and I`m watching something on Discovery Travel. I`m a bit tired, so  guess I will go to bed at about half past eleven.

Bye, guys! xD

Hugs from Nya.
