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

Rating: 13+

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.

Ever wanted to read something captivating and alluring, while similar to "Kure-nai"? Readers, i bring forth to you, Blood Alone... a romantic mystery fantasy drama that merges sweet romance and vampires, which are obscured from society.

The story revolves around two protagonists, one being Misaki Minato, a newly turned vampire, not out of choice but as a result of an attack on her and her father, which left her parentless and alone. The other protagonist is Kuroe Kurose known by society as an upcoming author. At the same time he is the guardian of Misaki and has a part time job as a private eye. His read 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 read more

I'm not typically a huge manga guru, but I've been in a phase where I'm basically obsessed with shoujo manga. I came across this one and was put off at first by the vampire aspect - I'm usually not a fan of vampire stories - but I decided to give it a try, and I was blown away.

First off, the art is absolutely incredible. At first, I thought it was too plain and simplistic; I was used the the extravagant styles in mangas such as Loveless and Hana to Akuma. But the sophisticated and realistic look in Blood Alone really grew on me, and now read more
