Description
Vampires Charles J. Chrishunds (Charley) and Johnny Rayflo have a strange relationship. Charley is a cyborg and a vampire hunter for the Vatican, while his master Rayflo enjoys a playboy lifestyle. While fighting crimes involving vampires, Charley struggles to control his lust for blood and for Rayflo, while Rayflo delights in seducing his servant and attempts to deal with issues from his own past. Rayflo cares about Charley (also known as Cherry and Chris), and these feelings don't seem to be one-sided.

*The second volume of Vassalord contains a bonus one-shot in the back, a fantasy story called "Zoul Harf" or "Zoul Half." This special one-shot was first published in the Comic Blade Masamune summer issue in 2003. not scanlated

I don't really know why people criticize this manga. It's one of my little favourite ones. In my opinion, the mangaka's intent wasn't that she wanted to make a real or a "kind of" yaoi or shounen ai manga. I think she thought it would be enough if she just drew a really good fantasy-comedy manga with a piece of shounen ai and a lot of fanservice for girls. And I don't have any problems with that.
By the way, I like all the characters and the plot as well. For me it's 10/10.

The story is great and the art is amazing. I would even read this manga just for the main characters. Their relationship is interesting, cute and romantic. Sometimes I just can't tell who is the puppy and who is the master. They keep changing roles (lol). Love the side characters too. All of them are funny and interesting, especially the number-0 masochistic mafia with the stuffed bear. And the chibi~~ gahhhh~ I would kill for the chibi. Just too too cute > <

First and foremost, this manga, like some people here have already said, is nothing special. Ok, I agree that it had a decent story, but it's not something I would either consider an original masterpiece, or a genius idea to a plot. To prove my point, I would like to make a helpful checklist:

Vampieres falling in love? Check!
Forbidden love of some kind? Check!
Something tries to get inbetween them? Check!
Most characters in this manga are homosexuals? Check!
Uke is hard to get, but is actually in love with the seme? Check!
Evil mastermind that looks like a kid but is actually 600+ years old? Check!

Sounds special right? lol

Vampires, sexy vampires, sexy vampires who are hot for each other. Throw in a hell of a lot of sexual tension, comedy, drama, drama, drama and you've made me a very happy girl. & What the hell? You can never have too much fan-service! ;D It's purely personal taste.
I also don't understand why so many find the plot confusing, I had not troubles with it :/ I found it interesting and exciting!! Is every concept unique to Vassalord alone? Of course not, but ever story adopts concepts from somewhere but it certainly still deserves some credit for its own execution of them.
If you love BL, sexy vampires, just the right amount of drama with a refreshing touch of comedy, and if you're not so damn nit-picky, don't give this a miss!! I fell head-over-heels, maybe you will too.
My only complaint is that I still wanted more! It did feel a little unresolved-ish in at least one aspect, although maybe not the most important (which makes a difference).

Art, Plot and HOTNESS

I'm giving this thing a 10 because it is a 10! The plot is awesome, the genre behind it all is a thriller, with the set up, and side notes, and it's all coming together as the chapters hit the pages. And all this from the fact that the author had to hit the ground running after ONE PICTURE? It's amazing work! If you do put it down and go back, you'll see how it's working out. I love the art, the details she puts in to everything, and the swings from raging hot to silly faces. Her ability to capture expressiveness is fantastic. The author has a wonderful sense of humor, the punning in Japanese is almost non-stop. I'm starting to wonder if people don't realize that this is a graphic novel, and it takes time to set up a plot and introduce characters. It's definitely not a Yaoi PWP one shot. This is a long term couple with all the ups and downs, insane acquaintances, unwanted relatives, and totally bizarre circumstances along with the crime factors. The fact that the Vassalord series also has furigana through out makes it a great way to practice for someone learning Japanese, too. I sort of wish more manga were as generous with the little assistance on the side of the Kanji.

The art is not exactly my cup of tea, but it's pretty good.
EDIT: I originally said that I couldn't make out a plot, but I lied. It's there, but the whole plot deceived us to think of something else. It's all over the place imo. It's a mystery--like a detective story. We find clues in the story, but the story is misleading. Something related to drugs that can make a human into an immortal (vampire). There's a side character that's an investigator, whose significance I cannot quite grasp.
As others have said before, the interaction between the vampire and the cyborg vamp hunter-priest is an erotic one. You should expect shounen ai vibe, because this is classified as one. I had expected it to be borderline yaoi because of the vampiric theme, but it's surprisingly innocent interaction (innocent imo...). They obviously have a thing for each other, but the art only hinted (heavily) at that *possible something something*.
Seriously, I've got to admit; the combination of vampire and slash is hot. The innuendo is...so clear. So, so obvious. Warrants some heavy rolling of the eyes. And of course, a lot of "necking" as expected.
I'm surprised I find the body language rather sensual despite the body type of the couple (both extremely muscular).
I enjoyed it for the most part. It got a bit dull some where in between so I put it aside for a bit, but I kept reading til the latest chapter.

It was okay. There were certain scenes/images that were really well-done, but this storyline is otherwise lacking. Once I got to Ch 23 and 24, the series became "meh." I still want to know what the Vassalord is.

interesting actually. but im just scanning, i'm not thoroughly reading it.. this can say a lot.

im not really into fantasy genre but this acatually caught my attention. however, i dunno. uhm, i can't get myself into this. there were some scences that is really sexual without having the sexual act. that's how good the art was. the character's feeling shows without it being cheesy.

i really like it. but i guess this is a bit overrated by some. just because this is a refreshing plot doesn't mean its one of the best manga..

A lot of people told me this manga was wonderful, amazing... "You have to read it!". Well, they made me think this was REALLY a masterpiece. But in truth, it's not. The plot isn't bad... it's interesting, but a bit confusing. The characters... I don't like them at all. They're not bad, nor good. They are nothing... they don't interest me, they don't arouse my curiosity. There is too much fan service, it distracts from the plot. If the mangaka wanted to do a yaoi manga, she should have done it! But this is an hybrid between a shonen bad done and a yaoi with vampires. Not my type!
