I came across Wild Kiss when searching for a BL manga without any angst and sure enough, that is what I got. The story itself isn't very original, a vampire feels a strong attraction to a human and relies on said humans blood in order to stay sane.
Looking past the plot, we find Asakawa Tomoki a guy who looks like a sweet bishoujo. He is likable enough, though a little bland. Then we have Yoshida... This is where things start to get a little weird. One day, out of the blue, Yoshida confesses his love to Tomoki and tells him he's a vampire... yeah... We
don't get to know much about the characters, but seeing as this is a one shot, it's not really that surprising. The other characters aren't important, except for a seemingly psychotic female student.
The art itself was very pretty. Clean and easy to follow, this was definitely one of the mangas strong points.
Despite its flaws, Wild Kiss is a worth while read. It's lighthearted, gives a few laughs and I would recommend this to anyone searching for a soft shounen-ai comedy.
