Bloody is a vampire unlike any other that Ichirou Rosario di Maria has met. He has red hair and red eyes, refuses to drink blood or hurt humans, and cannot die even when exposed to sunlight. The two meet when Bloody rescues Ichirou from a group of vampires who desire the coveted "Blood of Maria" running through his veins—its delicious scent lures in vampires like a siren call, which has caused Ichirou recurring problems. After defeating the low-level nuisances, Bloody begs Ichirou, whom he calls "Maria," to finally end his interminable life.

At first, Ichirou is skeptical that Bloody is as harmless as he seems, and does not know why he would be able to successfully kill a seemingly immortal vampire. As it turns out, Bloody has him confused with another "Maria"—Isaac Rosario di Maria—a famed priest and exorcist who lived four hundred years ago. Ichirou inherited the cross-shaped rosario that his grandfather carried, and should possess the same ability to exorcise even the strongest vampires—such as Bloody—but is unfortunately unaware how to call upon his dormant powers.

Determined to survive the repeated attacks on himself, Ichirou makes a deal with Bloody, who he renames "Mary"—until the day comes that Ichirou can fulfill Mary's death wish, the vampire must do everything he can to protect this single human.

So first of all don't be expecting a typical BL love story just because of the shounen ai tag!
This story does have romance elements in it but is super light on the shounen ai I would argue it's almost non existant entirely and could be described more of a platonic love story all in all.

Plot and artwork go really well together and I have to say that it's definitely one of the best vampire stories in the anime&manga genre that I have read.
In the beginning there are a lot of things that don't seem to make much sense but it gets clearer the more you ...

Preliminary (21/40 eps)
Bloody Mary has a good plot and so far its plot seems to be really well planned out so that's a plus.
The pace of the story is fast, which I like. I don't advice reading all chapters in a row because there's a lot of information at each chapter but it's hard to stop reading.
Unlike MAL says on the genre, this manga so far isn't a shounen-ai.
The art is STUNNING. Just look at the cover.
Bloody Mary is such an adorable character, it's impossible to not love him too.
The only complaint I have is in term of character names because three characters are called "Maria" and ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (1/40 eps)
This review is biased, I'm not going to sit here and lie to you. I adore gay vampires, it is a favorite sub-genre (?). So when I came across this series, I was ecstatic. However, it is merely queer bait. My poor gay heart.

Other than the blatant queer bait, the storyline is pretty solid. A vampire that wishes to die because of his tragic past and a blossoming holy figure. He goes to this figure knowing that this person would be likely to kill him.

They have this strong sexual/romantic tension between the two but nothing ever comes of it. I cannot recall what chapter ...
