Synopsis

Witness the touching relationship between young vampiress Misaki and her human companion, the former vampire hunter turned investigative author, Kurose Kuroe, whom she'd die to protect. For recently turned vampire Minato Misaki, vampirism and the beastly powers that come with it are something that she wouldn't wish upon her worst enemy, let alone her beloved Kuroe. But Kuroe's supernatural investigations make him a regular target of not only vampires but of all sorts of undead creatures of the night. The only way to save him from these deadly threats may be to do the one thing that Misaki fears the most: to turn Kuroe into a vampire for his own protection

Blood Alone revolves around a shoujo vampire (13+ years old) named Misaki, and the man she lives with, Kuroe. His age is indeterminate so far, but he’s clearly past school age, a writer and part-time private eye. Despite this May to December situation, their relationship is a chaste one, even though they sleep in one bed together. Compounding the oddness of their arrangement, she has not made him into a will-less slave, a “Renfield” — which makes them unique in this milieu.

There is a lot more ...

Rumour has it that the manga has been dropped; the lack of updates seem to confirm this.

All in all, I enjoyed it. The story isn't driving although it is interesting enough. The characters are much more interesting. There are hints of over-arcing plots (the magician Kuroe shares a name with, his sister, the musician father of Misaki, his connection to Kuroe, etc) but nothing ever goes anywhere because of the apparent cancellation. It's still worth reading, though.

Pardon for rabbit trail discussing the potential loli interpretation. :)

The (onesided?) romance between Misaki and Kuroe is in heavy squick territory. She's pre-pubescent and thinks ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (43/? eps)
When I first read this series back in February 2013 (thank you GoodReads for that precise recollection), I remember that I really enjoyed myself with it. The first thing that popped out the most to me, nostalgically speaking, were the characters and the chemistry between Misaki and Kuroe. The second was the artwork. I recalled how beautiful I felt the illustrations were. I’m quite pleased to admit that both of those things have held up fairly well even after four years. However, the story in its entirety is a completely different case, pardon the pun.

Starting with the qualities that I loved: the vampires themselves. While ...
