I guess you really can't have a happy ending in the purest sense with a story like this..

Damn what a sad ending... I wish it would end well. I will definitely buy this epic manga after I am done with Fate Stay Night.

Not too bad. I mean there was never going to be a happy ending. Things had to finish one way or the other. Nothing was held back and it was a good showdown at least. Really not a bad plan to gamble on hesitation knowing Kayuki's character. Still it's probably best for things to end like that. Finally can rest in peace. Kind of wish there was one more chapter just for an epilogue, but can't have everything.

I doubt he thought she would hesitate. It seemed more like an excuse to let her kill him and not feel that sorry for the act.


Anyways a sad ending, but how could it have been a perfect ending? Someone had to die...

I agree, he let himself die.

While it was a sad ending, it wasn't a pointless ending. I think it was a good way to finish it off.

Although it is not a happy end, but still it is a good ending because Strauss finally able to rip for such a long year....
Life is dear, love is dearer. Both can be given up for Fate/Nanoha.

An unhappy happy ending. Strauss couldn't go on like that for much longer regardless. I'm still torn over whether he would let himself die, he definitely had enough reason to let it happen. In the end, I'm just happy that he's happy. I don't know if I'd buy this manga, but I mostly enjoyed the read.

Ah, at least he was free in the end. Glad I didn't drop the manga.

The ending depressed me a little but...well, at least things worked out for the the others.
And it was really the only ending that made sense, so I guess it's okay.
This manga was amazing, I am glad I decided to read it and didn't give up on it. xD

Before I finished this series, I accidentally read a spoiler that totally exposed the ending. I wondered if i should just drop it since i knew how it would end. I am really glad i didn't, compared to reading a spoiler the actual ending was amazing.
I wish there was an epilogue to this series. I really wanted to see what it would be like with the dhampir's living on the moon.
This is definitely in my top 10 favorite manga.

Well, I don't know why you people are so disappointed about the ending. You should have seen it coming for a tragedy manga. That was actually a great ending considering Akabara lived for too long while even fighting against her wife and child just to ensure no wars would broke out.

Finally, one of the greatest king of all time can rest in peace now. All Hail Akabara!

I really enjoyed this manga, and the ending fit perfectly!
In order to stop the girl's and his suffering, (even though Stella said she didn't think it was a curse because she got to see so much she wouldn't have otherwise, he set her free) he went and died, I wonder if he knew she wouldn't hesitate, but at least it ended rather nicely.

A great lot of moral and ethical dilemmas, but I still can't get over my mini rage over Saberhagen and the rest of the human / vampires. Fearing someone more powerful than themselves and that led to the destruction of Strauss's happiness and the destruction of the night monarchy, and even then he diverted the hatred towards himself to limit the bloodshed!

Mah well, a happy(?) ending for the dhampires though, they get to be exiled to a place where the humans won't be afraid of them, a fresh start for their kind.

Definitely saw the ending coming, but it doesn't change the fact that I wanted Akabara to be able to live in peace for a change.

Damn it was sad, but i think he really wanted to die. And if he didn't, Kayuki would die and Stella would never find peace, so it was the right choice. The man was tired c´mon. Rip him!
I was kinda predicting this type of end...
Still, it was great;D (except the alien part, it was a bit stupid), but the manga was wonderful~~

I couldn't ask for a more perfect ending. I kinda knew from the very beginning that Strauss was going to die because the manga is called the "Record of Fallen Vampire", and the the fallen vampire is referring to Strauss.

Anyway this was a really outstanding manga. I like how Strauss was made into a savior or a hero near the end. Only a selected few people know what he did, so this "record" of him will only fade away in time and become nothing but a myth. His deeds won't be remembered, but it is the deeds that matters not the fame.

This manga had an amazing plot. The ending was probably the best way you could possibly tie everything up. All that's missing is a good epilogue. I wanted to see the progress on the moon, but I guess not.

Its rare to see a manga that demonstrates this as well as Record of Fallen Vampire. Great manga.

9/10

Its such a sad ending :( But i got to admit this is the best possible way this manga could end , unless the mangaka adds another 20 chapters on how to solve the black swam mystery without having to kill the King.At least, now the King can reunite with his beloved Stella, which is considered a good thing right ? :)

Damn, sad ending is sad but this was quite a wild ride for this manga. I guess I'll give it a 7/10 because some of the dialogues and scenes were dragged. The alien parts were also unnecessary. This isn't a fucking science fiction. But still, a fun read ^_^

the author made a good ending for this story. he's been fighting for way to long, and he will never be happy as long as stella is like that. better to let them go.

though yea, i'm quite depressed regardless of this outcome. a very good story

Did not expect this series to be so good. It went straight into an 8/10 when they introduced the alien plot and got even better (tho not a 9/10 level) when they added the twists after the Queen was revived.

However, I felt that the end was a bit weak and not explained enough. It left a bad taste in my mouth in the end. I did not see why they had to battle it out (Kaiyuki and King). I also did not like Kaiyuki's character in general. She was too mad most of the time.

But, the other characters such as Bridget and Adelheid were fantastic. I didn't expect Bridget to have so much depth in her character as well as Adelheid being a good character.

The twists were so great. The only one that I expected was that Kaiyuki/Yuki/other Black Swans were somehow related to Stella.

Also, this series is very similar to Code Geass, which is very nice. I can make so many character comparisons with CG.

Gotta re-read Spiral now~
