Description
Makoto Okazaki is your run of the mill high-schooler, a perfect bullying target and a closet pervert. One night he decides to return a DVD to a friend of his and ventures out into the darkness. He notices a person on a nearby rooftop. The person lunges at him before he is able to make sense of this, and bites into his neck, drinking his blood. The attacker stops. At this point Makoto notices that the attacker is a beautiful girl. She asks him: "Do you want to die or become like me?" He decides to live...

A slow-paced manga.

There's nothing too much to brag about this manga. But It is good in the fact that it deals more with the psychological aspect than the "action" aspect. As Makoto changes and adapts to his situation, we (the readers) are slowly drawn into his situation and we could relate to him in the way he makes his choices. He's pressured whether to continue to live his life as a human or leave as a vampire, and I think it'll be a very interested choice depending on which one he picks. I like the slow-paced approach to this manga and I look forward to the future chapters.

Totally Unpredictable

And that's what makes me follow this avidly. The initial premise of a teenage guy being transformed into a supernatural being is familiar. But what happens next is consistently surprising. And that is true even though everyone acts, on a daily basis, like a human in their situation would be expected to act.

It's just that this mangaka is creative enough to have all those believable actions add up to a bizarre and unpredictable series of events. People often say of a manga that it's cliched, and they very often are. This one is the very opposite of that.

What I think Oshimi may b doing here is taking the fundamental story of the interaction of vampires with humans, which in the West has in recent generations always been romanticized (in the sense of being made fascinating and titillating), and telling it in a way that emphasizes tragedy—of the vampires' horrible situation and of their murdered victims,

The American novel, "Interview with the Vampire", published way back in the 1980s, was the first story to do that since the original vampire stores of the 19th and early 20th Century ("Nosferatu the Vampyre", in the latter case).

I am now kind of creeped out, thinking how ugly things could get in this story.

This could get tragic if Oshimi chooses to make it so.

The story moves slow that I would like. Also, I wish the protagonist wasn't your typical leading loser type of character. I wish he were a bit more proactive as well. Basically it's your standard loser high school kid gets super powers type of story. Nothing more or less.

Am I brainwashed..??

I'm not sure how to describe this but I feel brainwashed.. The flow of the story is just amazing in a sense that I can't quite comprehend. I'm not sure if it's the flow of it, if it's the actual writing, the art or what. But everything just CLICKS. The art and the story meshes well, the pacing of it is perfect, and I feel fits with the personality of the character. It's not boring at all.

There's a slight seinen vibe, and I feel like I can understand some of the situations very well. The situations feel more realistic, which is different from most manga of this type of genre, where I feel there are more "coincidences" that aid in progressing the story.

[As of chapter 7.]

Oshimi is my favorite mangaka, he always portray his characters as mentally weak at first, but you can see in time that his main character gain a sort of enigmatic wisdom that push them further onto adulthood and maturity. For those that enjoy dark and twisted mangas, this author will not fail you smile

Interesting!

Came across this manga today and so far it's pretty good. It's a nice spin on the vampire genre where its finally female turning male. Monthly releases I believe, so in the coming months my score might change. 8/10
