It falls on similar patterns of Kaze ni Chiru Hanabira to Kisu, by the same artist, but, unlike Kaze, I found the length here quite problematic.

There's no denying that there is a certain feel to it, a certain mystique in the way the artist captures emotion and creates atmosphere, but that alone, notwithstanding the initial premiss, can only do so much. The dialogue was poorly executed considering the length of the whole: there wasn't enough of it and the inner-monologues did no better to enlighten us.

Again, as in Kaze (which, by the way, has a much different tone and... well, no vampires), I really like the cyclical effect and how it leaves with this overwhelming feeling of hope. In this work particularly you can't feel that as much, maybe because it lacks clarity and depth overall, and especially on the part of the characters, which is always a no-no. The plot itself was interesting enough but it turned out rushed...

It was a little disappointing.

It feels mystic, deep... Which is difficult to achieve in so few pages. So imagine how good this could be if it were longer. And the art looked good, expressive, touching. The words were also beautiful.
This was waaaaaaaay too short. i feel it really could've been worthy of a nine or ten had it been more developped.

I would've loved this manga were it not so short. There's no character development at all and no explanation for anything happening. If this were planned out better and fully detailed, I know this would've been a manga I would cry over.

I like this one bit it was awfully short with no really character development. For one thing, no explanation is given for why the vampire chooses to go looking for his human lover reincarnated instead of turning the guy so that they can continue to be together.

Very sad and beautiful!
This was one of the first yaoi mangas I've ever read, then I found it again by chance today. Still good!

It was like a carefully written short poem: it aroused curiosity, but left out most of the 'whys'. The art was pretty and soft. Not one of my favourites, because the story was too limited in itself and the characters' personalities were too briefly flashed, but it was a good jump-off story for imaginative readers.
