Love Monster was a great shoujo manga. If you like the romance type, with funny characters, and a serious plot on the side then you're gonna love this manga. The story revolves around a girl named Hiyo who goes to a school for monsters where you meet Kurou who is one of the leading monsters in the monster society because he is a crow. One of my favorite parts about the manga was learning all about his past with Hiyo and seeing their relationship evolve into something much, much bigger than the two of them.

Later in the series you find out what their destiny and read more

What if your future wasn’t yours?
What if you were promised to someone else?
What if that person wasn’t human?

An old legend, a boy, and a girl.

I won’t lie, the story disappointment me a little, I expected something a little darker in theme. The first few (20+) chapters will make you wonder if the summary is of the wrong manga. It isn’t dark, at all. It has so much potential to be but the characters and the lack of plot development make it fluffy and sweet, no difference from other manga except in the characters themselves being monsters and that adding a little salt to the sugar read more

The art was great and the premise, especially toward the end, was amazing. What I couldn't stand was the fact that the heroine was so mind-numbingly stupid and useless. Hiyo, even after discovering her powers, spends chapter after chapter being saved by people. Various powerful monsters fall in love with her simply because she's virtuous and nice (meaning: because she is the heroine) and don't seem to mind at all that she's so stupid that she needs to be pulled out of every little thing. Hiyo aside, I loved the other characters especially the background for her parents and their generation read more

Due to the overwhelming amount of strangely positive reviews, I've decided to write a little review of my own. DISCLAIMER: If you are a fan of this manga, read no further. I would give this manga a -10 if it was an option.

I consider myself a fairly laid-back, tolerant person; in fact, I've never actually cared enough to write a review, but when the protagonist has had everything short of rape done to her (I'm sure that's in chapter four), I feel the need to say something. I picked this manga up thinking, "Oh, this looks cute." Excuse me while I vomit. I was read more

Manga: Black Bird
Normal girl and monster guy type set up. 
reportRecommended by Kiku-ame
Manga: Akuma na Eros
Two ecchi-ish love stories involving monsters/demons. The plots are very different, but these two stories have similar feel. Though Akuma is much more smut than love monster 
reportRecommended by as3
Manga: Yokujou Climax
Both have a strong male lead, desire climax is probably alot more smut yet love monster has its indications. Over powering males with alot of status and overwhelming storylines 
reportRecommended by Kimi-
Manga: Monokuro Shounen Shoujo
A normal human girl entering a monster/beast school. Although in Love Monster, the lead is revealed to be half monster/half human.

Manga: Gakuen Alice
they're both the same in the way that......
..in gakuen alice, students possess diff. kinds of alices and they're not allowed to go outside the school with a strong barrier w/ it, as well as in Love monster students are gathered in a school who are monsters..
[how is this both similar? they're stuck up in one school because they're diffrent from ordinary humans and so why they're gathered up in a school]
