The anime was complete shit. It really just threw the story out the window and went for 100% harem comedy.

The manga takes a little while to fully get it's plotline under way.

(click to show/hide)
TL;DR, the plot line finally really picks up once Tsukune is at the same level as the others and can hold his own amongst them.

The art style undergoes quite the shift from the beginning to the more recent chapters too. I mean really. it looked pretty cartoony and simple at first. Now? well now it kinda resembles deathnote a slight bit.

Laura and Gabriel arrive in the deepest cave of the castle and... they find IGA.

Character development? In Rosario + Vampire? I'm going to give this series a shot again. I got volume 4 and 5 still laying around.

What I read of the manga I liked quite a bit. But then again I also liked the anime, and I don't think I could easily recommend it, given that was something I'd summarize as "To-LOVE-Ru but with restraint". Still, mindless sex comedy is usually just what the doctor ordered when it comes to de-stressing while sick and/or with finals.

I should go back to it at some point. I think I stopped when the site hosting it ran out of scanlation work.

(BTW is there a welcome thread? Didn't see one in here...)

I think there's an introduction thread somewhere in here.

So given all the input I conclude that a remake of the anime more true to the comic would be kick-ass. In the mean time I'm gonna see about getting my hands on the manga.

Wow... I'm surprised I haven't replied to this... I thought I did.

Have to agree that the anime is a piece of shit. Manga is soooo much better. And season 2 of the manga goes completely off from Season 1.

I like Mizore too... the shyness is cute.

I love everything about this anime. The look, the atmosphere, the characters, and of course, the music.

The music of this series (the selection I made, that is) is up to this day one of the most listened albums ever in my life.

The second season, story-wise, was not as good as the first one, but it was also funny, and I laughed a lot with the chapter on which Yukari rescues a little dog under the rain.

But the manga had a lot better story than the anime, I must say that.
Now I'm tired, eternally walking... forever dying, and never stopping. I feel in sorrow, all I see is white. I’m following a blind way beneath a sad sky.
