Rosario + Vampire ~Chu~ – 04

Yukari worries about her physical appeal until someone helps to change her.

Impressions:

I loved this episode’s heavy focus on Yukari. Although in the first season they kind of had an introduction episode for each of them, beyond that they never focused on anything serious with them, so it’s nice to see that here. Although ultimately the “serious” aspect of this episode only came in at the very end, it was still there. I did think it was pretty nice for them to not have to show the formulaic kill this week’s bad guy thing. Although you heard it in the background, they didn’t show it which was actually nice because if you’ve seen one, you’ve really seen them all. It was fun seeing Yukari grown up like that, and very fun to see everyone’s response to it.

It did seem from the short tiny preview that there will be more individually centered character episodes, which I’m actually looking forward to. I pretty much expect them to be the same as this, 90% filled with fluff and then a short tiny lessen at the end that somewhat advances the character, but still its better then just an absolute fluff episode.

One thought on “Rosario + Vampire ~Chu~ – 04”

  1. Yeah at least they didn’t bother showing the usual finish. Though makes me wonder about Tsukune. He arrives just to ‘accidentally’ remove the rosario and then before Yukari regains consciousness he runs off again.

    Was good to give some development for Yukari. Since I think they skipped her more serious issues last season in terms of the human fear factor. So dealing with maturity and being the youngest of the group fits.

    Curious to see what they do with some of the episodes. Managed to slip in an enemy from the first season of the manga for a different purpose here.
