Kana Takachiho, despite her disadvantages, is a pretty nice girl. She's friendly, outgoing, and used to be good at sports until she was injured in a freak accident, losing the scholarship keeping her in school, and earning her the disdain of her fellow classmates. Oh, and her childhood friend and (self-proclaimed) boyfriend, Aki, just so happens to be a vampire who turned her into his slave after drinking her blood on their first date.

But Aki's not just any vampire; he's a Pureblood. And he's participating in a game to find the seven "Stigmas" in order to wake his twin brother and Kana's other childhood friend, Eriya, from his mysterious slumber...

I loved this manga so much, and highly recommend it for people who will read it through to the end. Shouoto sensei's art has always held up to my sky-high expectations, and the story is so beautifully woven and has such a heartbreaking ending (no spoilers). It starts out light but has a dark twist in the twentiethish chapter, that wonderfully depicts the character Aki's pain and longing. Also is very educational for people interested in Japanese culture, as it has little tidbits of very cultural aspects. For example, the Hanafuda cards that tell a very grim story, as well as the characters' trip to read more

This manga is a classic example of a promising plot with amiable characters gone wrong in the hands of unsophisticated imagination.


The manga starts off with a pleasant introduction of the female protagonist, Kana Takachiho, a normal teenage girl leading her normal school and home lives. As predictable as it could get, her life was turned upside down when she was injured in an accident, saved by a pureblood vampire , Aki, (who was introduced as her childhood friend) and obtain immortality as a result of him sucking her blood. However in exchange of immortality, the female protagonist belongs to a “possession” of the pure read more

To review this story I'd like to say that at the beginning it was very interesting. The art was spectacular, as always with Shouoto, and the story line started of so great that i couldn't sand waiting for chapter 2. Then chapter 2 comes out and its okay but the story continues. Its around I'd say maybe chapter 4 or 5 i don't really remember, that it started straying from mysterious vampires and stuff to a cheesy school life thing. Don't get me wrong I have nothing against the school life stories they are very interesting at times but with this story it was very read more

Manga: Kenketsu Rush
Both these mangas have to do with main girl having to be a sort of "food suppy" to the vampire male lead. While the character's personalities and the plot differ, they both have romance and center around vampires.

Manga: Sennen no Yuki
The characters and settings are similar. If you like light stories of vamps and werewolves, most probably you'll enjoy both manga.

Manga: Vampire Knight
Both are vampire romance series with beautiful artwork. The main characters are human girls who come into contact with childhood friends who happen to be vampires. Both series are published monthly.

Manga: My Boyfriend Is a Vampire
Both are about vampires and in both the main girl looks very masculine.
