comedy romance vampire


Karin is a cute little girl who also happens to be a vampire...with a twist. Once a month, she experiences intense bleeding from her nose--we're talking gushers! In other words, she's a vamp with blood to spare, so rather than stealing blood from humans she actually gives her blood to them. If done right, this can be an extremely positive experience that benefits the "victim" as much as the vampire. The problem is that Karin never seems to do things right!

I think there's two things that make me love this series. First of all, while vampire stories have been done so many times, as have romantic comedies, Karin is one of the few cases where the author tried to put a new spin on both genres, and actually succeeded in doing so. Second is the characters. Particularly Kenta. Usually the leading female role of these series falls for a whiney, brooding little brat. Karin's love interest goes completely against this archetype, with an upbeat attitude and a great work ethic (sort of like a male Tohru Honda, but tougher). Karin herself does have some of read more

**NOTE**First off this is my first time writing a review and the only reason I am doing so now is cause of the lack of reviews for this manga so if this review sucks you now know why. Also this is my favorite manga and one of my favorite animes so this review may be a little biased though it still is a great manga biased or not.

Karin is a romance manga with a vampire theme but what makes it so good is in my opinion how the author always seems to be able to add a little twist to the series read more

Female vampire falls in love with human male classmate.
In both mangas, the females falls in love with a guy, and when around them, start having nosebleeds upon sight of the male or at least near them. Love is mutual, and all turn well in the end. However, Karin is a much more longer manga, and the female is a vampire, and in Koi no Akashingou is just a oneshot and is just an ordinary girl.
