Sunflowers and a Vampire ("Himawari to Banpaia", ひまわりとバンパイア) is the tenth episode of Rosario + Vampire. The previous episode was Summer Break and a Vampire and the next episode is New Term and a Vampire.


Ruby awakens to find herself in a tent with Tsukune and co. and a soft drink can held to her. When asked why she attacked them, Ruby explains about how badly witches have been treated and how developers are planning to destroy the sunflower fields where she and her master live. Seeing how kindly Tsukune and his friends treat each other, Ruby starts to have doubts that drive her to later sneak out that night back to her master. When Tsukune and co. rushes into the sunflower field to search for her, Ruby's denial regarding her master instigates a massive battle and a forbidden spell is used, whose near-irreversibility raises a lot of question of whether or not Ruby will survive.

Long Summary:

Part One:

Ruby awakens in the Newspaper Club's tent, dazed. She wonders what happened, but remembers the girls attacked her after she injured Tsukune. She tries to attack them, but is stopped when Tsukune holds out

Ruby is shocked by the Newspaper Club's kindness

a can of tea for her to drink. Ruby tells them that they can't buy her off with a can of tea. Tsukune explains that they only want to hear her story and they learn the past of Witch Hill. Ruby and Her Ladyship have only been attacking humans to protect their home; the plant monster ate the humans. Mizore then points out that it doesn't matter if you're a monster of a human, a life is a life. Moka then suggests that if all Ruby needs is a home, she should come to Yokai Academy as it has a lot to offer her.

When everyone else has fallen asleep, Ruby sneaks out with the unopened can of tea she was given. She thinks about the News Club and what they've taught her, bringing Ruby to tears; she feels that it's too late to change who she is now. Ruby calls a crow to bring her wand (which was lost during the explosion) to her and flies back to her home on Witch Hill. There, she tries to talk to Her Ladyship about what she has just expierenced, but is caught is vines, controlled by Her Ladyship. Ruby tells Her Ladyship that she will never betray her as the can is broken while she screams..

In the meantime, the News Cl

"Her Ladyship's brood"

ub has woken up and noticed Ruby has gone missing. They race back to Witch Hill, where the girls are caught in vines; Ruby is controlling them. Ruby appears, back to being a vicious homicidal maniac, telling them to leave Witch Hill as she calls out monsters plants that reside beneath the sunflower feild. Ruby explains that Her Ladyship grew these monsters to help with wiping out humans. Tsukune tries reasoning with her, but Ruby has turned a deaf ear to his pleas as she orders the plants to devour the News Club.

Tsukune is saved by Mizore

Kurumu, Yukari and Mizore get themselves free and begins fighting the monsters. Some try attacking Tsukune, but he is saved by Mizore. All three of the girls tell Tsukune that they will protect him. Tsukune then realizes that Moka has been unable to free herself from the vines and runs after her. Unfortunately, Ruby buries him and Moka in a sea of plant monsters. Kurumu, Yukari and Mizore are horrified and try fighting their way over to help him.


Inner Moka is released

sukune wonders what he can do to help Moka and realizes he can release the rosario seal, pulling it off from Moka. The energy from Moka's transformation from her Outer to Inner self releases enough power to make mulch out of the sea of plant monsters. Ruby only looks on in shock, realizing that Moka is a powerful S-class Vampire.

Part Two:

Inner Moka thanks Tsukune for saving her and begins fighting Ruby, knocking her into a pile of dead monster plants ("I'll take blood over peace"). However, Ruby is not done yet, as she brings the monster plants back to life and merges them into new ones twice as big as before. She also traps Moka and Tsukune in vines and begins slashing away at them with her razor-sharp wings. Ruby goes on about how she is carrying out the wish of Her Ladyship. Tsukune then realizes that Her Ladyship must by in the house on the other side of the hill just as he gets a cut on his face. Moka sees this and frees herself easily, kicking Tsukune free of the vines and knocking him over to Kurumu, Yukari and Mizore.

Tsukune begins running towars the house, buts gets blocked by the monster plants. Kurumu and Yukari team up, clearing the path for him. They both get into an arguement as usual, but Kurumu is envious of Yukari not having to lug around 4 extra pounds in front like she does during a fight. Yukari tells her that they have to finish the conversation after the fight. Almost at the house, Tsukune is blocked again, but the plant monster is killed by Mizore's icicles.

Arriving, Tsukune finds roots coming out of the house, which he deduces is what is controlling the plant monsters. He tracks the roots to the room of Her Ladyship and asks her to let Ruby make her own descions. He then notices something isn't right and smashes the mirror in front of Her Ladyship.

Outside, Kurumu, Mizore and Yukari are exhausted from having to repeatedly kill the plant monsters, only to have them come back to life and double in size. They then notice Ruby has captured Moka and will not listen to reason, even from Yukari. The girls are then wrapped up in a ball of vines as Ruby laughs maniacly.

Ruby, in shock of seeing Her Ladyship's death

about the plan; Her Ladyship is not there. Ruby defends this by explaining that Her Ladyship is IN the house. But Tsukune yells that she's been dead a long time. This shocks Ruby, who we see have a flashback to Her Ladyship passing right after deciding not to go through with her plans. Ruby was unable to accept the death of Her Ladyship and a false image of her has been haunting Ruby this entire time.

Completely snapping, Ruby cries in defiance of this, using a forbidden spell that merges her with the plant monsters, which results in a giant multi-mouthed plant monster with Ruby in the middle one. Yukari realizes that Ruby has gone off the deep end and the only thing they can do to save her is to beat her, asking Tsukune to toss her magic wand to her. Remove the shoe from Kurumu's free foot, Yukari is freed from the vines by Kurumu's nails as she frees herself, Mizore and Moka.

However, Moka becomes trapped in vines

Moka being fused to Ruby and the plant creature.

, which proceed to burrow into her body and merge with her. Ruby explains that in her new body can fuse with an infinite amount of other monsters to control them absorb their powers and plans to start by fusing with Moka to adquire vampire powers and become unbeatable.

Yukari distracts Ruby temporarily by blinding her with tarot cards that cover her face. Yukari tells Moka to destroy Ruby's wand since it will break the spell and possibly release Ruby. As more vines fuse with Moka, she flies towards the wand and though Ruby tries to stop her by controlling her body through the vines, Moka resists long enough to dive-kick the wand's crystal, shattering it. This causes an explosion; which releases Moka but consumes Ruby, who Ruby screams in pain. During the explosion, Ruby has a happy childhood memory of Her Ladyship before a second, more powerful explosion occurs.

The next day, the News Club feels terrible for not being able to save Ruby. Ms Nekonome arrives just as the bus does. Gin departs from the bus and everyone stares in shock; Ruby is in his arms. Gin said he found her floating in the ocean, like something was protecting her from harm.
