Synopsis

Unlike her family, Karin Maaka is a vampire who walks outside during the day and sleeps during the night. Nobody from her town knows of her true identity—and she plans to keep it that way, as it could jeopardize her "normal" life if someone were to find out.

Kenta Usui witnesses Karin bite someone on the day he transfers into her class as a new student. Thinking that something provocative is happening, Kenta tries talking to Karin, only to bring about a series of misunderstandings. After Karin begins avoiding Kenta, he becomes determined to set things straight between them. However, the moment he gets close to her, she has a massive nosebleed!

This is Karin's true secret—rather than sucking it out of humans, she periodically produces excessive amounts of blood, leading to nosebleeds if she does not release it. Unfortunately, her blood seems to react strangely to Kenta. Armed with knowledge of Karin's truth, will Kenta be able to keep her secret?

Spoiler free review!!

I didn't really expect much from Karin when I started reading it. The cover seemed generic and I wasn't sold by the art style or the summary of the plot. A few months ago I remembered the series when I saw it on sale, since I had read the first few books as a child in a local library. I had liked Karin, though back then thought every manga I read was good because I hadn't read that many. Since I never finished it as a kid, I thought to give the series another chance. I'm glad I did!

Karin is a very relationship-heavy ...

First Impressions,
So I first found out about this manga by watching it anime adaptation,
Which wasn't bad per say but I wanted to see the source material for the more compeled story and Also I think of the idea of a vampire who doesn't exactly fit in with the normal vampire society in a way and shares a bit more of a connection with humans.
I think is sorta interesting.

Can a bad ending ruin an otherwise good manga? Yes. For me, in the case of this one, it can.

It's just baffling the way this one wrapped up. Honestly, I don't even know how to write this review. MAL suggests not including spoilers in the reviews, but so much of why this story landed with a massive thud for me is because it has one of the most rapid turn arounds from good to bad I've seen in a story.

Just the fact that our protagonist loves her family, is devoted to them, and her family loves her and cares for her, just for ...
