The protagonist becomes a vampire against his will and is forced to hide his secret from his friends and family. Initially, the protagonist is the typical weak and timid character, with the tragedies that surround his personality is being shaped. The other characters are normal, only students who care about the protagonist but do not know his secret.

The art of manga is very good and manages to convey the feeling of horror. The author is the same ANH then we can expect a strong psychological burden of this manga.

If you like Tokyo Ghoul you must read this one.

Happiness. Vampires.

Let's start with the plot. This story and MC are not very original at all. Young timid boy in a town where there are monsters (vampires) come out at night and kill people. The boy meets a girl who's not really interested in anyone but him and boom. Turns out she's a vampire
But with that said its still entertaining and keeps you on edge
(9chaps in the plots score may change with time)

Art: the art for this manga is about average, maybe slightly above nothing you haven't seen. Has a realistic touch to it.

Character: MC is the typical shy,timid,frail guy. Hasn't been read more

This a fairly new manga, and at the time of reviewing, it is only 16 chapters in.

Warning: there may be slight general setting spoilers for the first 16 chapters.

If this manga keeps going on its current path, it could be a truly great piece of work, one that I have waiting for years to finally happen. The setup is extremely promising, and has my extremely excited to see where it goes.

I'm going to start by saying that this seems to be rather shallowly tagged and summarized. It's about as Shounen as Ajin and Tokyo Ghoul are, which is to say, not at all. They are read more

This is a review counting 21 Chapters.

Warning, minor profanity included.

I have read Aku no Hana and I remember being entranced by the story like it haunted me in a way. It had a captivating drive that I could not understand.

With Happiness, it's less, but that captivating essence is still there.

There is no central plot or story. There is no final goal, there is no happy ending. This is a story where different characters collide and shit goes to hell. There is no good or evil, there is no 'hero' and there is no 'villain'. There is no superhero.
Everyone just lives theirs lives as like anyone read more
