Synopsis

Set in a time when vampires are ubiquitous in society, treated as outcasts, and forced to keep their identities hidden—despite having signed a peace treaty two hundred years ago, following which they have satisfied their hunger with merely pig's blood—Orange Marmalade tells the story of Baek Ma Ri, a young vampire who has faced great difficulty due to her nature. Feared and hated, the girl has been driven away from several neighborhoods and is eager to settle down with her family in their current city. The endless prejudice has left her disillusioned about friendship and love; however, the sweet-scented blood of Jung Jae Min stirs something within her and renders her unable to resist biting into the neck of the charming man. Ma Ri must now cope with her life after this encounter, as her victim begins to fall in love with her.

To be honest, most of the manwha is hit or miss romance fare. But when the emotional beats of the story hit, most of them hit hard. There are certain highlights here and there in the overall story, but I've re-read the last 20 or so chapters more times than I can count. The climax and ending of this manwha is what elevates it for me above most other romance stories, and if you don't want to read the whole manwha, I recommend the beginning and end for anyone interested.

I would go into more detail, especially in regards to how well the main character's friendships ...

Mixed Feelings
This is overall a pretty fun read; although there's a really interesting premise it doesn't feel like the manhwa completely convinced itself of its own world-building until the later chapters, which were the more interesting ones in my opinion.

There were also some really annoying character moments and the middle dragged out a bit because it was almost all just Mari being wishy-washy. I understand the reasoning for it, but it felt like not much moved forwards and even then there was a lot of questionable decision-making.

I also thought that side characters could have been fleshed out more; it really felt as though they were just ...

Nothing about this is fun, meaningful, sweet, or tragic.

The main plot setting is that humans are irrationally, wildly racist against vampires to an extent that is unfathomably unrealistic. The "love interest" is a pushy stalker. The main character is a gutless, bland loser. Since the art is average, it leaves the work with no redeeming factors.

This could have been an interesting work despite the flawed premise if any of the characters were particularly fun or unique, but nobody offers anything. Instead it is nothing but a slow paced abomination. "OMG being vampire is suffering" is not an interesting story.
