OK. Been sick in bed for two days. Was perusing Netflix and noticed they had the Rasaorio + Vampire anime. I watched. I liked. Then I was reading about the manga on the wiki. Wow. They really need to make a new anime and stick more closely to the manga. It sounds like it would kick way more ass. Not that I don't like the harem thing, but still. Thoughts?

I've been a fan of the manga for quite a while. Never really watched the anime. I didn't like the casting of Todd Haberkorn as Tsukune. I like Haberkorn, but I felt his voice was a bit overdone and didn't really match the character (ironically enough, I wanted Yuri Lowenthal to do his voice).

Anyway, I love the manga. Kicks all kinds of ass and definitely one of my favorite takes on its mythology.

Girls are sexier in the manga. Although I haven't played the game... Just know the game has some nice scenes too... The manga's pretty kinky, though. I think I have up to Volume 7 of Season II.

Is Mizore Shirayuki very different in the manga from the anime?

The manga seems pretty boring to me. Compared to the anime (which looks pretty ridiculous) it's probably a masterpiece of writing but from what I've read (2 - 3 volumes) the arcs really aren't that special. There's no point to reading the story because you know the story isn't going to diverse from the boring status quo to begin with. That's what I don't like harem anime or manga of either kind, shōjo, seinen, etc.

It's my understanding that the anime pushes the harem thing much more than the manga did. Some fans even complained that they went over the top with fan service panty flashing in the anime.

Believe it or not, they do quite depart from the harem crap into more interesting things further on.

The manga is pretty dark. Tsukune dies quite often in very brutal ways. Inner Moka gets thrashed around quite a bit. Moka's sisters are batshit crazy. The Crying Freeman parody sister is a bit creepy. The monsters in the manga are actually pretty brutal and there are a couple [mildly] disturbing elements in the story. And Mizore's arc is kinda sad, I thought. I didn't particularly care for the Jiangshi arc, I thought it was weak. Inner Moka gets more time on the page in Season II though, so that's nice. I like Inner Moka more. But Mizore's my cup of tea. And holy shit she's fucking horny. For a girl so icy, she warms up to a guy pretty quickly and things heat up fast.

To summarize, it's a bit like Kekkaishi -- it starts off pretty weak, just some fan service and stuff, then shit gets serious near the end of the series. That's how a lot of manga is. If you start a series and like it a lot in the beginning, odds are you won't like the end. If you start a series and think it's weak and cliche in the beginning, it probably gets good in the end.

Truthfully, I'm a little torn between Mizore and Kurumu, actually.
I mean, for craps sake I go by Inccubus, how could I not be into a hot succubus chick?
