If you're a Blood+ fan and you haven't read this mini series, you must!
It's a prequel to the anime (or manga) taking place in Russian during 1916 when Czar Nicholas II was in power.
...If you paid attention in your world history class this might seem familiar...
I really like the story! It's a real shame that it's only two volumes long..
It can get a little dark with some suspense and bloody action scenes, but it still has a few cute and some comical moments.
As for the art it's close to the anime and there are some well drawn action scenes.
If you liked the
anime, light novels, or even the five volume manga, you wont be dissapointed with this series.
If you're curious to where this manga fits in the anime. It takes place in the same timeline of the flashback that takes place in Episode 17: "Do you remember the promise?". The events of this manga sem to take place before the events of that episode.
