As Fairy Tale prepares to attack, Moka, Mizore, Tskune, and the head of the Huang family are still in the thrall of the Rosario seal. History is revealed as the events of Moka's past unfold in front of them, from how she got the Rosario to the real reason of her mothers disappearance , including a very surprising fact of Moka's bloodline. As the battle outside the compond begins, Kurumu uses her powers to enter Moka's mind in order to awaken the sleeping members of the party. Can a confession from Tskune be able to free them, but what will the reprocussions of those words bring to the other girls.
This was a very dark story, but well written and well thought out. With only two books left of Season two, how will the group be able to function and defeat the newest threats. I only wish July was here so I can read th next part. Later

vol 8 the next book in the now the two season series is great....i had just heard of the manga after watching the the anime on netflix. i have ordered all the books so far and im seeing now a multi book episode going on. in this book i find that there are alot more questions asked than answers given. for example in moka's dream we find out how her mother dies and what kind of vampire moka really is...but there is no answer to the reason for the outer moka. also it talks about a destany for the one to be able to remove the rosario to be the one for moka forever. when you really read through the book 2 or 3 times it gets alittle irritating that there is so much incomplete in the big picture. in every book before this on some big problem or obstical or question is answered and you feel alot better about having closure until the next book is released, that isnt the case with this book. it will make you go crazy with questions of what is going to happen and where will the story go after all that has happened, happened. i really love the series very much...only hope i can wait for the 9th vol to come out in july

This is a great story that includes a lot of the monsters that we all know and love in a high school setting. It is cute, funny, action packed and sexy but I implore anyone who has seen the anime and hated it DON'T JUDGE THIS MANGA BY THE ANIME!!! The story is stronger, the dialogue is better and the characters are far less annoying!
The manga does not insult your intelligence but still provides an array of fan service to the benefit of the story instead of at the expense of it. Everything from epic beat downs, dramatic transformations, to steamy situations without the ridiculous over abundance of panty shots and idiotic banter. But that is not to imply that there aren't ANY panty shots.
Story wise it is very well written and will always leave you wanting more. One of the most likable things about the manga is the consistent character development between each other and independently. It is one of my favorite manga and I can't wait for the volumes to come.

I start knowing R+V with the anime, is good but not out of the ordinary, theni see pics of the manga in google, and they catch my attention, the i started to read the first season online and passed to the second season in less than a week, in short words i'd loved the manga, and now im buying all the collection, if you like mangas like beelzebub or tenjou tenje probably you would like this too.

First off, I got really interested in this series after watching it on Netflix Instant video for PS3 or any compatible device. When I saw the original book adaptation on Amazon, I knew I had to have at least a couple of volumes to see and compare.
Let me tell you, I was not disappointed. If the video adaptation was "Moka Lite" then the book most certainly is "Moka Latte". Yes the introduction of the principal characters and sequence of events is off plus so many other new and old cast members are more detailed in a parallel universe sort of way but that makes it more interesting. The video animation truly only hinted at what the books actually convey.
Yes it is a lone not wanting to be a "Hero" overall nice guy named Tsukune but its his harem of beauty's and the interplay between them in a world of "Humans and Monsters" that makes it more than eye-candy. Of course without a heroine like Moka, the catalyst that melds the horrific conflicts into peaceful resolutions of love, trust, and harmony there could'nt be a story like this. Did I mention lots of humor, jokes, and mature subject matter?
O.k. so anyway, once I found a VIZ manga app. for the ipod touch, loading the rest of the volumes I did'nt have at half price or $4.99 each was easy. Now I can wait patiently for volume 9 to come out in July or I could go to a Japanese bookstore and order volumes 9,10, and 11 except it's in Japanese.
Looks like Ikeda figures that more volumes is better and easier than starting from scratch on a new series. Good for him and me.
In my opinion if the story ever concludes correctly, the hero needs to marry all his harem mates. Its the only way to keep everyone happy.
