Synopsis

Sennen no Yuki focuses on Chiyuki Matsuoka, a high school girl hospitalized with a heart problem. Since birth her heart has been very weak and she was told that she would probably live to be only fifteen. However, one day she meets Touya Kanou, a vampire, with the opposite problem: Touya has lived for about one thousand years. It's customary for a vampire at his age of eighteen to choose a human partner to be with for 1000 years who in turn would let him drink their blood and share his life span for the millennium.

Early in the series, Chiyuki offers Touya her blood, so that she would be able to live longer, but Touya refuses, claiming he dislikes the sight and taste of blood. In the beginning, he even looks down on humans, believing that they are weak creatures who will only die before him and leave him behind, but later on he, with the help of Chiyuki, starts to see the world in a different perspective.

Since I can only find reviews from almost 10 years ago, I will provide a fresher set of eyes on this manga series since it's finished. I'm no manga critic but I can say that this is probably one of the better short mangas that I have read in a while.

Hatori really did an excellent job executing the plot, and her character development was great considering she only had about 17 chapters to do it. Short stories don't have to be complicated or unique to be good. While the premise and the actual characters are very basic, Hatori is able to make it an read more

At first glance, the plot did not seem so interesting to me because of the typical supernatural romance between a vampire and a human. The first chapter seemed like that, but everything after that was very interesting. There is one underlying point driving the plot, the romance between the main characters, but even the side stories and complications did not hinder it. They were skillfully sewed into the story and I enjoyed them all. I did feel that the very last conflict could have been explained a little better, but the manga did end on a good note for me.

The characters are wonderful. They are read more

Preliminary
Although technically this manga series is not finished since Hatori Bisco is focusing on completing Ouran Kokou Host Club, the chapters that she managed to write for Millennium Snow are turning out to be very interesting and romantic.

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 read more

Preliminary
The story had a very interesting plot and seemed to be a bit like a halloween type of manga, but still had light-hearted romance.

A great manga to read, but you may feel a bit empty with the ending since it doesn't really have an ending since Hatori chose to put all her focus into her other manga "Ouran Highschool Host Club". I have to say that is the only downide of this manga, other than that, this manga is a great work ad I'm sure shoujou fans will find it adorable.
