I like how the characters each have symbolism in their names and it has a very Halloween type of effect seeing as one is a vampire and the other is a werewolf. If you are looking for something that is very light-hearted and carefree, then you will enjoy the first 9 chapters of this series. The story begins with how they all meet is very somber in the beginning [especially each of the main character's back-stories] but it makes you realize how important it is for the three characters to be together and makes you feel happy. Afterwards, whenever they encounter an obstacle, you feel worried especially when it involves that something bad might happen to the main girl, Chiyuki. Also, the things that they do for her is what makes it turn out romantic but you have to read to see why.
There aren't any bad aspects so far since the series is not fully developed and is on a hiatus but if you want to read Hatori Bisco's first work in manga, then feel free to read. I think it's pretty good =] read more

I liked this manga because it was very unique in its storyline. It used realistic aspects that parodied the dangers of romance [heartbreak, betrayal, etc.] and the importance of family. The climax of the plot was worth reading cause it was definitely something I did not expect. [When you begin to think that 'oh that's the story' and relax, you soon realize it ends up becoming a beginning to another twist]
I really also liked how Aihara Miki develops each character so you feel a strong attachment/emotion to them when 'its their time to shine' and you don't forget their importance afterwards if they don't come back for a few chapters. The art for it is really well done and the dialogue is good too.
It also delves into many issues that are very serious so it would be hard to understand the circumstances going on in the manga if the reader is not in high school yet.
What I didn't like was how the main character, Hatsumi, acts. [if you are really a feminist, then this might not be the right thing for you ^^;] This manga is particularly long and if you can deal with her constantly being confused by what she wants, having very little self-confidence, or acting submissive all the time, then maybe you can make it all the way to the end of the series. It was very annoying to deal with this aspect but it causes you to focus more on the guys in the storyline and their feelings/actions and the plot itself.
***Overall, if you can stand her, its a really good read. There will be moments that will make you mad, sad, disgusted or feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Although, I personally wasn't happy with the ending but maybe you might be. If you are looking for something with depth, then this is the manga for you. =] read more
