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). It turns out this man was the boy who once played with her when she was little. When they were children the man said he would marry her. Shortly after he disappeared. 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

Sexist garbage. I hate everything this manga stands for.

How can you enjoy reading a story about a woman being jerked around so badly by a man?

I stopped reading this manga after he yelled at her to watch him kill someone because it was her fault that it had to happen. She's a 16 year old girl, you monster.

It's hard for me to express all the problems here without really spoiling anything. If you are one of those women who likes the idea of having someone hiding in your trashcan at night, or who would find it romantic to one day come home read more

I really thought this manga was just a silly romance manga with little to no story that I would just read in order to pass time. Well honestly the story is actually pretty cool and unique. The supernatural aspect mixed with romance was well structured and captivating. Yes, it tends to be very sexual and kinda throws the topic of rape in their a lot, but they mix it in the story where it doesn't seem forced (plus if there's a guy and a girl in love, their most likely going to have sex and make out a lot and not just a few read more

Harada, Misao is a sixteen-year-old chick (16! Oh, what a surprise!), in highschool (two surprises already, I don't know how many more surprises I can take!) and can see freaky mumbo jumbo (spirits, demons, ghosts, you name it: she saw it) and then pops up Usui, Kyo who then becomes her teacher *SURPRISED gasp* (although this fact is forgotten later on in the story... Somehow) and tells her he's her childhood friend and that she has to marry him or risk getting eaten by fellow youkai.

"I thought I was having a nightmare" said main protagonist, you thought YOU were having a nightmare, I KNOW I 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...
Similar ideas... Tenchi Shinmei! is so sick though, it's almost like it's got a bit of a touch of horror in it, but they're both still really good (:
The idea of powerful demon in love with human girl is evident along with human girl requiring protection from the male lead. Both have their smut moments although Black Bird has more. Black Bird though has a darker theme to it as compared to Ayakashi Koi Emaki.
They both involve a love between an "animal" or "beast" and a human (although technically Aoi in Beast Master is not a beast).
Both mangas are hilarous!! Plus, both main guy characters, LOVE to tease and annoy the girl main character. I hope you love Black Bird as much as Faster than a Kiss!!!
