Summer Break and a Vampire ("Natsuyasumi to Banpaia", 夏休みとバンパイア) is the ninth episode of Rosario + Vampire. The previous episode was Math and a Vampire and the next episode is Sunflowers and a Vampire.


While on summer vacation in the human world with Nekonome as their chaperone, the Newspaper Club's fun in the sun on a beach gives way to a field of sunflowers on a hill that Tsukune discovers to suggest reconnaissance thereof, not realizing that there are a pair of witches residing there that make no distinction between them and the land developers that covet that area. Feeling left out because of what she thinks is her young age, Yukari encounters Ruby later that night, who is pleasantly surprised to see another witch. As she is pondering whether to join Ruby and her master, Tsukune arrives to escort her back to the others. Ruby tries attacking everyone, injuring Tsukune. This angers the girls enough to attack Ruby.


The Newspaper Club has been given permission to go to the Human World for the club trip. Tsukune meets up at the Bus Stop earlier with Moka and nearly ends up kissing her. However, the arrival of Kurumu, Yukari, and Mizore ruins the moment and their chance. Ms, Nekonome arrives with the bus and Bus Driver; Gin is not taking part of the trip due to failing too many subjects (which he apparently has to complete under Ms. Ririko's watchful eye, saying: "Shit! I'll join you guys as soon as I can"). Kurumu laughs at Gin's plight until Yukari points out she's in the same boat; Kurumu failed her math final. However, Kurum rushes Yukari into the bus, saying she finished her make up exam. MIzore then bets Kurumu "managed to SKIP OUT on them". Kurumu gulps as the bus takes off, but then says "maybe... Yahoohoo!"

Once the bus arrives in the human world, Tsukune express his joy at being back home, making Moka worry for a minute. Kurumu asks Tsukune why he's acting so happy; it's like he's a human. Mizore and Yukari agree with her. Moka then says that Tsukune lived in the Human World for so long before going to Yōkai Academy. Tsukune agrees with Moka, saying that he feels attached to the Human World. Kurumu agrees; "I guess that can happen". However, though Mizore gives a smile of agreement, Yukari seems rather suspicious, still.

At the beach, everyone plays with a ball. Yukari asks Tsukune if he's not afraid of the Human World; he's not. obviously. Tsukune thinks to himself how Yōkai Academy is WAY scarier. Hearing this, Yukari calls him brave; a rather unnecessary flattering compliment. Moka dives after a shot, ended up lightly scratching herself. Tsukune wonders if she's okay. Moka's fine, but got "a pile of sand" in her swimsuit. Tsukune seems to drool at this, daydreaming, but is hit by a shot from Mizore; she apologizes. Kurumu is relieved to hear that Tsukune is just "comfortable" in the Human World as she was beginning to suspect Tsukune was human. Moka quickly decides to change the subject as Kurumu and Yukari get in fight over her stealing her shots with the ball. Tsukune has to jump in the fray to prevent her from using magic as there are other humans on the beach.

A short time later, Tsukune is sitting on the beach with Moka, admiring the ocean's beauty. They both lean in to kiss, but Kurumu calling out to Tsukune to come join her, Yukari and Mizore in the water causes them to once again miss a chance to kiss. Tsukune tries to get Moka to come along, but remembers vampires can't go in water (See Episode Five or Chapter 3), deciding to stay on the beach with her. Moka is shocked Tsukune is saying he can't have fun without her and once more leans in to kiss him. However, Kurumu thinks she was trying to suck his blood and yells for her to stop. The girls then get in an argument over who would care for Tsukune if he collapses from a lack of blood.

Tsukune notices a field of sunflowers above and everyone decides to go investigate. They wonder why a sunflower field is on a hill near the beach, admiring it's beauty. Unbeknownst to them, an unknown figure is watching them. Near-by a couple has arrived on the same hill, but the girl tells her boyfriend that they had better leave as people have gone missing there; a witch is supposedly behind the abductions due to feeling angry over a development plan that would destroy the hill and sunflowers.

"What would a kid like you know?"

Yukari notices them talking and wonders if there truly is another witch around. Kurumu hears this and tells Yukari that it's mean of her "relatives" to abduct people. Yukari calls her an idiot that believes everything she hears. Kurumu, in return, tells Yukari that witches get on her nerves. Yukari then yells that she dislikes succubi whose only redeeming feature is being a sexpot. Kurumu is embarrassed by what Yukari said, but wonders what she actually knows. In anger, Yukari drops a tub on her, drawing the attention of the hidden figure as Yukai drops another one on Kurumu.


The mysterious girl

Tsukune and the others find them and take them back to the camp on the beach, concerned that Ms. Nekonome might be looking for them. Kurumu complains to Tsukune about Yuakri's behavior, but is told to calm down. After everyone leaves, the unknown figure comes out of the flowers, saying that she must report the presence of another witch to "Her Ladyship".

It's evening and Ms. Nekonome goes out to procure fish for them to eat despite the protests of the Club as they already have a cooler full of food. Yukari offers to help Tsukune move the cooler, but is turned down as he is concerned she might get hurt lifting it; Kurumu helps Tsukune despite his protest. She then tries asking Moka if she needs help cutting vegetables, but is turned away out of concern she may cut herself. She next tries asking Mizore if she needs help setting up the tent, but is turned away before being able to ask.

Hurt, Yukari sits on a rock, feeling sad her friends won't let her help them. She then notices a presence back on the hill and goes to investigate; she wonders if there really is another witch there. The moon comes out and illuminates the hill enough for Yukari to see someone in the shadow of a tree. Yukari demands to know who it is, and the witch who had been spying on them earlier, Ruby, presents herself. After introductions, Ruby asks Yukari if they can be friends. Yukari accepts the proposal of friendship and is hugged quickly by her new friend.

Back on the beach, Ms. Nekonome examines the fish she got, but becomes shocked when Moka tells her that her tail appeared again. While everyone laughs, Tsukune notices Yukari is gone.

Back on the hill, Ruby tells Yukari about how witches have lived on the hill for generations and that Her Ladyship will soon enact her plan to wipe out humans to protect it; Yukari is shocked. Tsukune then arrives, asking Yukari who her new friend is. Ruby assumes Tsukune is there to defile Witch Hill and summons monster plants to kill him. Yukari slays them and tells Ruby that she won't let her kill one of her friends. Seeing that bonds between witches should be stronger than anything else, Ruby snaps, tying up Yukari and having more plant monsters try eating Tsukune. Spurred on by Kurumu's words from before, Yukari summons more powerful tarot cards and makes a salad out of the plants.

Everyone else then arrives, having become concerned about Tsukune and Yukari, to find the aftermath of the battle. Yukari apologizes to Ruby, saying they can't be friends and leaves with Kurumu and Mizore. Kurumu tells Yukari to quit being so proud and let her carry her down the hill; Yukari is adamant, claiming witches heal fast. Moka then realizes she and Tsukune are alone for the first since Summer Break started and tries to kiss him. However, Tsukune is injured by Ruby, who plans on taking Yukari with her as Her Ladyship commanded it. Distraught, Moka screams and the seal gets disrupted, allowing Inner Moka to come out. Yukari is horrifed, but finds Mizore freezing everything around her as Kurumu transforms and flies at Ruby.

An explosion erupts from Witch Hill.

Adapted From:


Coming soon.


  • Ruby is shown to be overexcited when she forms a friendship with Yukari, which follows the manga. However, she becomes the mellow one and Yukari the hyper one as the story continues.
  • Outer Moka's emotional distress at Tsukune being wounded likely caused Inner Moka to forcefully bypass the seal. She became infuriated seeing Tsukune bleeding.
  • Mizore's snarls with a furious expression as her eyes glow light blue before the nearby vegetation freezes. Kurumu's eyes glow a light purple as she assumes her true form. Moka herself is surrounded by a red glow (likely her aura) as she rises up. The glow likely reflects their riled emotions at Tsukune's wounding.
  • Yukari knew Ruby made a terrible mistake when she saw Moka angry about Tsukune being hurt, then she saw that not only was Moka angry, but so were Kurumu and Mizore. Plainly speaking, though Ruby was a powerful Witch she had a furious Vampire, Yuki-Onna, and Succubus out to get her.
