In this volume we finally get to see the history of Moka and how she actually got the rosary. We get a I depth look into the life of Moka and why she is as strong as she is. Despite the series telling us how strong vampires are in this series we get a look into what makes them so strong and why Moka is one of the stronger ones. We also get a tease for aha maybe Moka's toughest enemy she has ever faced. This being her sister Akua Shuzen who is the oldest daughter in the family and the strongest.

Wow some shocking stuff in Moka's memories! Did not see the twists coming! Great stuff, plus loved the cute sisters and a blanket mini comic at the end.



(Also, pet peve, but what's with calling a certain powerful Vampire by their name spelt backwards? It happens in books and films, but Manga does it a LOT. I mean, it's not in copyright anymore guys, and it may have been sorta funny the first time, but now it just a reference to a reference!!!)

I actually had to re-read the whole series, because I had forgotten so much, before I got down to this volume.

AND BOY WAS IT EPIC. AND BRILLIANT. AND BY FAR A FAVORITE.

Don't get me wrong, I <3 R+V, but what's going on is so much better than the tropy (though fun and hilarious) stuff the manga was filled with at the beginning.

I CAN NOT WAIT FOR THIS SHOWDOWN. It's going to be wonderful.

ALL OF MY RESPECT.

5/5

Continues where volume 7 left off where Tsukune, Mizore and Tohofuhai are trapped in Moka's head. We learn the secrets of Moka's dual personality, the purpose of the Rosario and what really happened to her mother.

A very plot heavy volume with none of the sexy flirtatios "fluff" of previous volumes although we still get some provocative costumes. Artwork is excellent and Alucard the big bad is like Geiger's 'Alien' but with more tentacles.

By far one of my favourites, the authors way of linking the past and present so that it wasn't a complete prequel was awesome.
Learning Moka, Aqua, and Moka's mother's backstories was AMAZING!
It gives you an entire, new appreciation for the lovely, pink-haired Moka!

The jorunay through Moka's mind still continued as they searched to find how to fix Moka's rosario seal, but soon Tsukune learns the truth about Moka and the reason why the seal was put on her in the first place. This secret is dark, it's almost impossible to believe.

Rosario+vampire is a good akuma based manga. It has a good art style and a good plot line. The akuma concept is good and very entertaining. Characters are good and interesting. The second season of rosario brings more plot, characters and twist. Very entertaining and darker than the first season.

i think that this book is the best out of every single one in the manga series so far and i think that Akihisa Ikeda is one of the best manga authors because of all the manga he has made

He's been a huge fan of vampires and monsters since he was a little kid.
