Synopsis

The world is full of mysterious "things," but life keeps on going peacefully because no one can see them--except Misao. Harada Misao has the special power to see these "things," but she doesn't tell anybody and tries to continue leading a happy high school life. Though she's jealous of her friends who have boyfriends, she's just like a normal teenage girl as she keeps having dreams about a boy she met when she was younger who has the same power she does.

Her mundane life suddenly changes when demons try to eat her, and her old friend Kyo comes back to protect her from them. Then, she finds out that she is personally being sought out by demons either to become their bride or their food, and that Kyo is a demon, too. Will she still marry him like they promised when they were children, based on her faith in him that he has no bad intentions towards her? Will she even be safe at school now that Kyo has become her new homeroom teacher? Her exciting teenage life is just about to begin.

Black Bird is one of those manga that you love at one point but then hate when the chapters start going nowhere.

Story: 7
Black Bird is about teenage girl (Misao) who can see little spirits and things from the underworld. One day she comes across a demon man (Kyo).

Now he's back and has come to claim what is his.

The story kicks off with your usual shoujo facotrs. Boy loves girl. Girl is read more

Personally, I didn't enjoy this manga too much... yet I continued to read it.
The storyline is as original it's going to get for a common shoujo/supernatural manga, though at times I think it lacked depth and I was often confused about what was going on (but that might just be me...)

The heroine of the story, Misao, is your average teenage girl - apart from the fact that she can see 'monsters', who whilst yearning for a boyfriend, finds love in a man that isn't human.
She learns that he was her dear friend from the past and that he came back for her so that they read more

Normal girl and monster guy type set up.
Black bird and Kamisama both share similar themes, such as romance, comedy and supernatural, though they're still really different...
