I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this manga. I'm actually not that fond of horror or depressing series, but I picked it up because in a recc it mentioned vampires.

I'm not quite sure how to review this, to be honest. There's just something about the story that draws you in and doesn't let you go until the end. I think the story is fabulous; it keeps a nice steady pace throughout the volumes, never speeding up to the point where you find yourself at a loss as to what's going on, or lagging too much and causing disinterest.

The art is beautiful. Not read more

Quite honestly, I was surprised by how much this manga drew me in. I find that it's usually only the very good, but little-known manga that have this kind of pull on people. Anything that I write probably won't do Hitsuji no Uta justice, but I'll try anyways.

The characters are extremly dynamic, and in a good way. Throughout the story, they change, mature, move forward, backwards, and forward once more. There is also nothing that is completely certain in this manga; it seems to lack the usual stereotypes and absolute courses of action that most manga are riddled with (not that read more

Hitsuji no Uta is written by Toume Kei, who also wrote the wonderful little story that is Acony. Acony is good, and it deserved to have 47 chapters instead of this garbage pile. The mangaka is a solid artist, and can make good work - again, see Acony - but he can also make a very cliched, pretty godawful manga with horrible potholes and characters.

Setting that aside, let's review this manga -


The story sucks. It sucks very bad. Sure, there are certain subplots and elements that are decent - all related to character backstories mind you - but the main story itself blows read more

I can't come up with a proper answer. It's kinda contradictory, between love and hate relationships about this one.
I like the fact that the term "thirst for blood" is presented as a disease. There is no connection with vampires and so on. But, that is not the whole subject of the problem. This tells a pair of sister and brother who are locked up in their nests with mysterious diseases.
You don't get anything other than those that are in the spotlight, even the information behind them is pressed as little as possible. The dark and miserable side can be described beautifully without being too melodramatic.
