Synopsis

Dimitri Lewandowski is a celebrated tenor in early 1900s Vienna. When he is killed in an accident, his corpse is colonized by the seeds of a vampire master. At first, Dimitri denies that anything has changed, but as the people around him start dying, he is forced to accept the ghastly truth.

Flash forward to 2008. In Tokyo, Azusa Kikukawa’s troubled love life comes to an end with a fatal accident. Dimitri appears in her dying dreams with a diabolic proposal—he will save her lover if she agrees to become the breeding ground for the next generation of vampire seeds…

This is not just any random shoujo you might like and it's not the next vampire love story that you would read before going to bed. This is a piece of art that shows the twisted side of love and life. It's the story that would make you reconsider your believes of the vampires.
First of all, its concept is quite unique, not perfect, but yet very enjoyable and touching. The development of the story is good enough for a psychological manga (slow enough), but some parts could have been worked out a little bit more. The storyline follows the life Dimitri, who was turned into read more

This is a really tragic and interesting story. This is technically a vampire manga, but if you go in expecting to see creatures of the night baring their fangs and seducing/sleeping with many women, you'll be very disappointed. This manga takes vampires to a completely new realm- it's so unexpected and strange. It took me a while to get used to this type of vampire, but the concept is really interesting, and love to see such fresh ideas with one of the oldest and most re-told monster story around.

Kuro Bara Alice starts out in turn-of-the-century Vienna, where we meet two of our main characters. read more
