Vampire Knight #08 — Half and Half

May 27th, 2008


I suggest the second half.


The entire first half of this episode bored me to tears. Yuuki and Zero had about three lines total, which left some Kaname, but it was almost completely the subvampires bumming around about Ichijou’s grandfather deciding to come to the school and them all flipping out about what might happen, plus Ruka being angsty over Kaname. Let me tell you, there’s nothing more exciting than 10 minutes of background characters talking.

Things picked up a bit towards the last third of the show. Zero pinned Yuuki in teh bathroom and proved to her that she wasn’t ready to "give herself to him," which is fun all around. Then Zero got an assignment to hunt a level E. Yuuki secretly followed him, and of course, the vampires ended up finding her too. Zero still managed to find it first, but it had a woman hostage and managed to talk at Zero enough to get to him and make its escape. Shiki was there to bloodwhip the punk, but it still managed to escape and ambush Yuuki. This time, Zero was there to finish it off.

So, yeah, the first half was atrocious and boring as sin. Thankfully, the second half of the episode was a lot better. Still, my will to summarize had been sucked away. We already have enough angsting vampires without adding more, especially characters that have had their names said a total of only one or two times over two months. Even though evil loli vampire kind of annoys me, this show could use an antagonist here instead of trying to keep driving itself onward on the power of angsting vampires. I far prefer the twintailed Teana vampire anyway.

    this show progresses slower than old people having sex

  • Furuba says:

    Rima is the best. That is all. Rima x Shiki ftw – the Deadpan couple or the Model Duo :D my personal nicknames for them, hehe. this was the chapter where i started to like rima coz of the deadpan faces she made in the manga XP

  • EX-Keine says:

    Hey, at least this entire episode sped through a lot in the manga, so the angsty nonsense of Ruka is followed precisely through… and hey, if you listen closely to the new character Maria she sounds exactly like Rena in Higurashi right before she starts that psycho laugh… XD

  • Furuba says:

    That’s coz it’s Nakahara Mai XD

  • EX-Keine says:

    Lolz… then Maria should just bust out a “USO DA!!!” at Zero or Yuki
