I often wonder why this hellish academy is so full of mafia like yobs and creepy teachers! xD
Anyway, as always (another re-read) we meet another character, who is of cause more than she at first seems to be. I remember Mizore being one of my favorites the other times I read this volume, but I can't see so much the appeal anymore, for the time being at least. She's just so... Odd.
I love that throughout this, we see Tskune suffering with the regular, mundane trails of being a teenager, even though

I kind of forgot what happened the last book, so the beginning was confusing. But eventually I got the plot.
I just Love The snow girl! Shes so nice, although a bit creepy, shes cool! I don't like Moka the best, shes just kind of clueless, even if she is nice.
What's happening in the story so far is pretty interesting, I didn't think that bull would come back, much less with a group of thugs. I also didn't expect that thing with Moka's blood to be affecting Tsukine that much.

I like to give Manga series 5 volumes to bed in - by then I can normally tell if I'm going to stick with them solidly, pick them up now and again, or give them a miss. This is definitely in the stick with it solidly category now. Yes, it's a tad formulaic, but it's fun! And this volume adds a great new character, and a needed change up to the status quo. So yes, unless something unexpected happens, I'll be avidly seeing this through to the end. (It's already beating the Anime hands down.)

Volume 5 and it's still same old same old with this manga. Every volume is a new bad guy trying to kill Tsukune and Moka saving him. It was a cool concept but it isn't going anywhere so I suppose I'll be done.

This volume ties up the witch story arc, introduces abominable snow girl Mizore and has our students face a Kraken and monstrels (mongrel monsters). It also deals with the affects prolonged exposure ot Moka's blood is having on Tsukune. Really nice artwork, and lively characters continue to make this series a really fun read.

Review of the first manga series 1-10:

This manga is not terrible, let’s just say that. But it has a lot of problems.

The art is beautiful and I think the art itself is where the author’s talent lies most heavily, not plotting. The plots of each volume…pretty laughable to even try to identify them with the idea of ‘plot.’ The situations are so see through you know well before anything goes down just how it all will end.

Fan service is always appalling when it happens upon a page, though expected,

This turned out to be a pretty decent series so far. When I started reading the first volume this morning, I wasn't so sure I would continue past these first five. It seemed that the plots were often recycled and that there was nothing new going to happen and no development in the characters. But with Tsukune's further integration into the student body of his new "monster academy," the plots become more interesting as the gang faces up against improved villains, gain additional members who turn ...more

Huh... well I am quite happy to say this series is taking a turn for the better! It started out really meh but each volume has been an improvement from the last. This volume was a bit ruined for me because I saw the episode in the anime first...but oh well.

I am very happy to see that Moka transfusing Tsukune with her blood is finally have an impact on him. I was going to be pretty pissed if she was constantly turning him into a temporary vampire and nothing serious was going to happen.

With the end of summer over, a new school year begins with Tsukune and the gang. After their counter at the sun flower field in the human world their newspaper club now has a new headline for their next back to school story. And that's not what also is a headline when a new girl come to school. A girl who very chill to meet Tsukune very much. Find out who is this new student in this next series.

A new ice creature enters the scene, a nice change of pace. I also liked that the end wasn't exactly what was expected. She promises to be an interesting character, except for the fact that she joins the ranks of women who have fallen in love with Tsukune....which appears to be EVERY single one.

So now there's yet ANOTHER girl in love with Tsukune... What a bore. At least she's cooler than the others HAHAHAHA see what I did there? You would if you've read it! In all seriousness though I DO like her best, after Moka. But Moka's all wishy-washy. Mizore does what best for Tsukune, even if it's not in her best interest of win in him over. And she has a sense of style.

It's good that this series is getting better already, because the formula of meet monster/remove rosario/kick butt was perhaps wearing a little thin. Thankfully there have been a few different story elements coming up that change the pace, but still maintain the momentum.

There was a fun playfulness about this series that I really enjoyed. The author threw in a healthy mix of comedic relief to each character and I loved how there were so many completely opposite personalities.

I like the artist's work in this manga and I think the story is great too. It keeps adding twists that makes the problems be interesting, even when it is a similar situation.

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.
