Karin, episode 18. Hopefully this remains tolerable to watch; also, no OP/ED :(

A weird episode - we get some insights on why
Ren doesn't like men much - I can see why - the
school council is insufferable and that's all I say.
Thanks again for the work - we'll see what the next
episode brings since it seems to be going back to
the Karin/Usui arc again and that's fine with me.

Now I know what you mean about being watchable (at first I thought you meant the video quality would be bad or something).
Boy, that episode really sucked.
Well, one bad episode out of 18 so far isn't bad I guess. But yeah, it was pretty bad.
Even though it was a backstory episode, it didn't fit AT ALL with the tone of the show. I know in the manga there's a bonus story on Ren (haven't gotten that far to read it yet, only skimmed it) so I don't know if it's the same story or not, but even just the tone of the episode was so out of kilter with the rest of the episodes...
The only thing I actaully DID like about it was them putting story over the OP and ED (too bad it was such a crappy story). My point though, is that if it was a cool episode, I wouldn't have minded at all losing the OP and ED to extend the story.
Well hopefully it seems that things might get back to normal next week (focusing on Karin and Usui again). I guess it can't be an anime without an Xmas show or a beach/pool show. The pool has been done already, that just leaves the Xmas show.. but it might be kind of nice.

(spoiler)
I don't get something... who has the bite marks at the end? The guy Ren knew from school or one of the two girls he's holding? At first it looks like it could be one of the girls (as both of the girls he has wrapped around him have red faces, as if their blood was just sucked) but then when they do a closeup of the bite marks, you see a white collar, which is like the GUY'S coat (and when he smirks, you don't see any fangs). So... are the bite marks supposed to be on one of the girls (making Ma-kun a vampire too) or left-over, old bite marks on the guy himself that Ren put there long ago?

Torgen said...

It's Makoto who still has the bite marks. Ren's side story in the manga is entirely dissimilar to this one--he goes to a regular school there, and he can't make an appointment with a girl because his vampirism keeps him trapped in a shed during daylight.

I liked the ep.....I mean it was cool....(not gay)...but in response to...anonymous (the last one that posted) the people who are bitten don't turn into vampires (apparently) so that guy couldn't have been one though he was bitten.

This episode was a wonderful parody on shounen-ai. It had me laughing a lot. Still, it was not a great Karin episode as it deviated a lot from what I've come to know and love from an episode of Karin.

Random Quote

<Torgen> Next I'll claim that my translations are perfect, and any apparent errors are really elaborate typos.
<MSH> typos introduced by the keyboard of course, not by you!
<Torgen> naturally.
<_bla_> Torgen: why is group called "we suck" then not "my keyboard sucks" ?
<Torgen> typo.
<Torgen> Tyreal: not enough room in your nick for |sucks?
<Tyreal|Seeking|Enlightenment> crap!
<Tyreal|Seeking|Enlightenment> I suck!
* Tyreal|Seeking|Enlightenment is now known as Tyreal|Enlightenment|Sucks
<Tyreal|Enlightenment|Sucks> phew
<Tyreal|Sucks> Torgen: how DID you do those DVD type subs by the way :P
<Tyreal|Sucks> just got fonts that looked like that, or used an actual dvd subtitling proggie
<Torgen> It's Arial.
<Torgen> I used TextSub.
<Tyreal|Sucks> ahh
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> Torgen: THERE YOU ARE
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> Torgen: do you really think I suck ;_;
<Torgen> no.
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> oh good
<Torgen> I was a little worried that it'd be interpreted that way, though.
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> Torgen: nah, I just laughed for about 2 hours
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> When I started getting pm's about it
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> "You're from we-suck"
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> apparently we-suck is popular with the french
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> Don't ask me why XD
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> They say they want to "worship you"
<Torgen> I'll put you in parenths next time so it's clear you just post the raws.
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> no, put Tyreal|Sucks in there
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> I'm amused by this now, I kind of like it XD
<Shouta> <WeSuck> You = my bitch
<Torgen> Yeah, it's like taking the ghost suit of the ghost lego man and putting it on the astronaut lego man.
<Torgen> The ghost lego man is now just a normal lego man with a featureless face.
<Torgen> while the astronaut gets to look out through the ghost suit's eyeholes.
<Spyre> Torgen that has to be the best analogy ever.
<Spyre> Thats EXACTLY what its like!
* Spyre is in awe
<kara|hw> i told crustol...
<kara|hw> '私解析していてちょっぴり濡れちゃった。'
<kara|hw> he hasnt talked to me in a while

<AWAY-Bomb|AutoShow> Whee!
<AWAY-Bomb|AutoShow> Suck!
<Torgen> no, because Hawaii would have been right
<Torgen> but it was wrong.
<Torgen> so it was left.
<Torgen> :(foot)
<Torgen> Think you could co-produce some Gundam show with cat girls in it?
<Jekichu-clone> gundam....cat girls...
<Jekichu-clone> ...
<Jekichu-clone> ....
<Jekichu-clone> no
<Torgen> Like have cat-girls (and boys, and women, and men) instead of Newtypes or Coordinators...
<Torgen> or whatever other gundam series had.
<Jekichu-clone> laf, thats straight up pornographic
<Torgen> think of the ratings!
<Jekichu-clone> rawwwrrrr
<PyRC> basket, if everything is recursive, maybe there are no fansubs.
<Torgen> And Ensei doesn't sound like I expected him to when I first saw him...
<Torgen> He looks all gruff...
<Torgen> and he sounds so comical.
<arcImpulse> and you expected...
<Torgen> him to sound all gruff, like those assassins...
<Torgen> but he sounds uncultured;
<Torgen> not rogueish.
<Torgen> it's like, if he said "wanna come over and watch the game?" I'd take a moment to realize that was an anachronism.
<arcImpulse> if you think he sounds weird... just wait till we get to Eccentric Kou
<arcImpulse> and you'd be like...holy anachronism~~
<Torgen> what, does Kou sound like a robot or something?
<arcImpulse> damn, I couldn't fool you, ne?
