Synopsis

When young artist Lou catches the eye of the devastatingly handsome Sein on the street one afternoon, he thinks his new patron simply wants to commission a portrait for his wall...but what secret flickers within Sein's piercing gaze? At the very moment that Lou draws closer to his brooding boss, an arrogant rogue named Adam crashes the party and pulls the curtain on Sein's blood-sucking identity. Lou realizes that his bond with Sein goes beyond mere portraiture and into the deep recesses of his heart...but is this frightened boy truly ready to unleash an untamed beast?

Hiroki Kusumoto set out to draw a vampire story and that’s exactly what she has done. The story focus is more on the vampire aspect than the boy’s love aspect and I applaud it for that. It would have been so easy for Kusumoto to have turned this into a no plot basic yaoi story with vampires just thrown in. However, because there is a plot it seems that Lou is a rather unnecessary part, or should I say he seems like more of a plot devise than a character.

The artwork has its own distinctive style and is superb. Kusumoto seems to have a talent read more

YaY! Vampires! And it almost ends there. The story wasn’t bad, but some of the transitions from scene to scene made me turn back a few pages to double check if I missed something… something like 3 or 4 pages. Volume one just kind of ended and, if you notice, volume 2 has the newer Juné Manga banner, so just consider how long it was before volume 2 was released. In the mean time you either wait uncomfortably for the continuation because even though it could have been cliffhanger material, it was more like it ended in the middle of a sentence; or you end read more

Manga: Vassalord.
The story lines aren't all that similar except both involve vampires and crazy ass "makers". Sein and Johnny and Lou reminds me of Chris. Vampire's Portrait is undoubtedly yaoi but Vassalord seems to only fall under the category. Both are just awesome
