Rosario+Vampire/Rosario+Vampire Capu2 is my anime for the year 2008. I've been watching this since the first season and I stop temporarily on any anime that I've been following for this year just to concentrate on this anime and any anime which I choose for that year which garners my interest. R+V season1 was critized by manga fans as Gonzo (the studio that has the licensed to R+V) butchered the manga chapters and created an ecchi spin off series which is full of fanservice and panty shots.
To make matters worst R+V Capu2 the second season has censoring mascots namely Ko/Kou the bat that announces the fight time on how many seconds or minutes it took for Inner Moka to finish a fight and he's also Kokoa's familiar that turns into a weapon of Kokoa's choosing. The other mascot is a yellow pedo bear which sometimes appear EVEN with effects along with the anime, also not to mention as seen in the sample picture above the bat and bears takes 70% to 75% of the screeen, also in this season there are original episodes and original anime characters which hasn't appeared in the manga. My rage goes to this since why would you censor an ecchi series? One reason for it is for the dvd sales due to that Gonzo has financial problems as of late. News on Gonzo here. As for now R+V Capu2 is still on going while the season1 is finished and the all the episodes in the dvd's are released.
Rosario+Vampire Capu2 Episode Guide and Summary.
Ep.1 Reunion + Vampire
It has been one year since Tsukune entered Youkai School. After spring break, Tsukune hurries to school to reunite with Moka-san only to collide with a mysterious girl on a bicycle who was also extremely cute. In school, Moka and friends were quickly surrounded with fuss by the new students. In addition, a large amount of fan mail was found in the shoe cabinet of Moka which came from the new students who also adores her, but there was one special letter. A dangerous threatening letter that said, "I’m taking your life." The letter is from the mysterious girl that Tsukune met that morning. There is a fight at the orientation, Moka breaks it up. Eventually the mysterious girl talks to Moka. We then find out that this mysterious girl is her sister.Note: based on chapter 3 and parts of chapter 1 of the second manga series.
Ep.2 Little Sister + Vampire
Continuing from where the last episode left off, we find our heroes facing the mysterious girl, who is revealed as Moka's younger half-sister Kokoa. A battle begins, and Kokoa is revealed to have a pet bat (the bat that has appeared through the whole first season) who can transform into any weapon Kokoa wants. Towards the end of the episode, Tsukune ends up removing the rosary around Moka-san's neck while trying to save her from Kokoa's weapon to reveal her true vampiric form. Kokoa gets kicked, and comes back to hug Inner Moka lovingly. We learn that she's in fact infuriated at Moka for sealing her powers, which is why she sent her all those threatening letters. The gang try to make her see reason, but Kokoa promises to make their new year of high school a living Hell.Note: based on chapter 3 of the second manga series.
Ep.3 Mother + Daughter + Vampire
It is parents' day at Youkai School. Among the visiting parents are both Mizore's mother Tsurara and Kurumu's mother. Their daughters made them both believe that Tsukune is their boyfriend, making both mothers put pressure on Tsukune to become the mate of their respective offspring. The two mothers are revealed to be old rivals, as they were once classmates at Youkai School and were fighting at the time over the same boy (much like what their daughters are doing now with Tsukune). After a final clash, which was ended by the unsealed Moka, the mothers came back to their senses and apologized to their daughters. They returned home, but not before they "instructed" Kurumu and Mizore what to do regarding Tsukune.Note: based on chapter 35 of the first manga series.
Ep.4 Body Measurement + Vampire
Yukari is bothered by the fact that she is still a child and with the help of a nurse she is turned into an adult. She now attracts the attention of every male, but is disappointed to see that Tsukune is not falling for her. At the physical examination it turns out that only Kurumu has a bigger breast size, which makes Yukari run to the nurse where she asks her to increase her breast size. The nurse revealed however that she was only helping Yukari so that she could feed on her negative emotions. She then restrains Yukari, who loses consciousness, to feed on her again. Before she could finish, the nurse is swiftly but unseen defeated by Moka and the others. Yukari returns to her former childlike state and decides that she will grow up naturally and asks Tsukune to wait until then.

While Mizore is trying to improve her cooking by herself, Moka, Kurumu and Yukari are attending a cooking class with a very passionate teacher when it comes to Indian curry. She goes to such lengths that eventually the whole school is becoming addicted to her curry, except for Mizore because she was practicing by herself, who succeeds in having Tsukune trying her version which cures him from the teacher-curry addiction. During a final curry-filled attempt to carry out her plans the teacher is ultimately defeated by the unsealed Moka and eventually everyone turns to normal. Mizore then treats everyone to another sample of her improved cooking skills, leaving them pleasantly surprised.Note: Anime-exclusive
Ep.6 Field Trip + Vampire
The group goes on a field trip to the human world. While there Moka wants to spend more time with Tsukune, but Kurumu, Mizore and Yukari make it impossible as they try to get close to him themselves. The four arrive at a hotel while an "alliance" follows them and grabs Tsukune as a hostage. Moka and the others plan to save him and Ruby comes in and gives them strange outfits. They arrived and Kurumu, Mizore, Yukari fight and defeated three of the leaders. When Moka goes and tries to untie Tsukune, the "commander" notices Moka and does his special attack on her. A talisman appears and Moka uses it to hit the leader twice before breaking his mask. The four leaders back away to show the "Teacher" who is really just Kokoa. Moka and the others pay no attention to this and ignore her attempt. Kokoa then tries to attack and the unsealed Moka kicks her away without much effort. After breakfast, Kurumu, Mizore, and Yukari walk and talk about the shrines and notice that Tsukune and Moka are missing.

While still on the field trip, Tsukune goes home to visit his mother. Shortly after his arrival, Moka appears at his doorstep (leaving Tsukune's mother in shock) saying she has come to visit Tsukune. While showing her his room, Kurumu, Mizore and Yukari suddenly show up shortly after one another. When Tsukune's mother is confronted by this she freaks out and Tsukune tries to calm her down, saying that they are just classmates. While Tsukune is inside the bathroom, thinking things over, Kurumu suddenly enters and tries to seduce him, only to be interrupted by Mizore (who is trying to take over the initiative) and Yukari. The ruckus is eventually too much for Tsukune's mother and she passes out, while Moka is taking care of her. The three other girls decide to settle things outside, wrecking the neighborhood in the process, while Tsukune tries to make them stop. Meanwhile Moka apologizes to Tsukune's mother, but when she tells her name, Tsukune's mother tells her that Tsukune told her over the phone that he is happy having her as a friend (Also her mother didn't know she was a girl).

Ep.9 Ski + Vampire
Tsukune and the others visit a skiing slope in the human world, which was surprisingly run by Mizore's mother, Tsurara.

Unfortunately, Mizore brought a ice doll replica of Tsukune and left the real one in the middle of nowhere. Kokoa showed up after she learned she can get her "Onee-sama" by removing the rosario around Moka's neck. When Moka showed up to find Tsukune, Kokoa was unable to remove it. When yelling at Tsukune, she caused an avalanche, separating Tsukune and herself from Moka. Meanwhile, the others were relaxing in the hot springs when Tsurara showed up and distracted them from finding Tsukune, until Moka and Mizore showed up, telling them Tsukune was in danger. Tsukune managed to take cover in a cave with Kokoa, but due to a snowstorm they were closed in and Kokoa began to freeze up. A Yeti showed up and started attacking them, but Mizore could distract it long enough for Tsukune and Kokoa to escape. Shortly afterwards, Moka arrives too and once again Tsukune manages to remove the rosario, unsealing Inner Moka who defeated the monster. This eventually turned out to be Mizore's father (in a costume). Apologizing afterwards, Tsukune and the others return to school.Note: Anime-exclusive with elements from chapter 10 of the second manga series.
