Chiyuki Matsuoka's given name literally means "thousand snow," and it embodies her parents' wish for her to witness the first snowfall of the year perennially. This wish is exceedingly optimistic due to Chiyuki's heart condition, which increases the risk of seizures and decreases her life expectancy. The doctor who presided over her birth said she would be lucky to live 15 years.

Chiyuki is 17 years old when she meets the unlikely vampire Touya Kanou. He claims to hate blood, and he refuses to find a human partner with whom to share the rest of his life. Touya is 18 now, but if he took blood continually from a partner, then they both might live to be a thousand years old.

Chiyuki immediately volunteers to be Touya's partner, but he shoves her away in disgust, inadvertently learning of her poor health when she starts to spasm. Touya treats Chiyuki more kindly after that, but still refuses to drink her blood. She begins to suspect that there is a different reason why he keeps turning her down, but will she live long enough to discover the truth?

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

Well, first off, I can say that I cried. That's something that should be taken with a grain of salt, however, seeing that I've cried watching Winnie the Pooh before.

But I sure have a lot to say.

I usually never read any manga that doesn't have an anime (if I watch an anime and like it, I'll read the manga-- usually an effective strategy because the manga is better so it doesn't ruin the anime for me). However, Millennium Snow doesn't have an anime, yet I found myself here.

I am a massive fan of Ouran High School Host Club. After watching the anime (and being 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

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
