Synopsis

There is a legend that tells of how the world was almost destroyed thousands of years ago by the vampire queen after she unleashed her latent powers. Despite their efforts, the humans were unable to defeat her, and thus resorted to sealing her away until the time came that they would be powerful enough to destroy the seal and kill her. However, the humans are not the only ones after the seal. Having cast aside his kingdom and betraying his own race and the dhampirs (half-vampires), the vampire king is persistantly searching, even to this day, for where his queen has been sealed away so he may break the seal and free her before the humans do. Fearing that once the king and queen are reunited, they shall continue to destroy the world together, the humans and dhampirs hunt the king, using any method possible.

vampire juuji kai / record of fallen vampire,

This manga has an extraordinary storyline. if you think of vampires, dhampires, humans AND aliens, it seems too much to be good. but to my surprise, this manga turned out to be really a masterpiece.
The characters have very profound personalities, nothing is just black-white.
The plot releases it's mystery slowly, which gives a very good vibe of curiosity and the urge to continue reading enormous.

I really enjoyed this manga, and I would recommend this as a must to read.

Vampires have lately become a trend in the entertainment industry, obviously including the anime and manga industry. Countless movies/books/series etc have been made about them, and in the name of originality, their creators had to more or less move away from the actual vampire myths. Which is a good thing, because otherwise all of them would pretty much be like Dracula, and that could ruin the whole genre. Nobody likes rip-offs, after all. Therefore, over the past few years we've seen vampires that can walk under the sun, go to human school and live a pretty much normal life.

Now, the reason I'm taking this long read more

I'm not too far into this manga, due to the fact that i've been reading it online and only 15 chapters have been released so far. From what i have read, i found it to be very good. There are quite a few surprising twists in just the first 15 chapters. Originally based around the Vampire king deserting his nation in order to find the queen,while being sought by the "Black Swan", It quickly turns to a story of revenge and intrigue. The action in the story so far is good, with the Vampire King leading in power, but slightly surpassed by the "Black Swan" read more

One of the best manga i have ever read.

At first i thought it was just another vampire story but soon it changed, the characters are very well developed, there is a reason behind everything they do, i can really think of them as "real people" and i feel sad for what happened to them.

This isnt a black/white story, its a gray one to its roots. There are no villains or heroes, or rather you can choose whoever you want to be villain/hero.

Its really saddening though, its been a really long time since a manga/anime/book/movie or any makeup story has managed to shake me read more
