I wish Shouoto Aya decided to hire a writer

You see, SHOUOTO Aya has one of the best art. Unfortunately, the same couldn't be said about the story. Unclear and disjointed story line, illogical action, and just like Oriolidae's comment, it feels like the artist just take random idea and put them into the story without elaboration to the story.

Ahh, sweet bliss. This one has potential... Overall, this is good GOOD start. Vampires don't usually bring out the best in a manga, but that's okay for now. As long as something doesn't go horribly wrong, I can see that this will get popular, and soon.

Art: I'm loving this, as it is extremely hard to find a book that has art that I can stand. So far, similar great art from some others that I've read. On the art side of this, it is a compelling attribute that will draw readers in. Love the cover. Yay for eyecandy!

Plot line: Jumps right into the supernatural, but for me, it was a little abrupt. Until there is a major conflict, this will be a child's game. Perhaps later on, I will change my comment, hopefully complimenting the author's handiwork happily.

Characters: Kana is sweet, but she lacks something... if she had been raised to believe in supernatural beings, it would have been more believable. It's uncomfortable when thinking about the fluidity of her actions, which make it seem like she accepts things easily... perhaps extreme laidback actions can be viewed as acceptable for the future? The werewolves and further creatures should be explained sooner, but it still shows potential. Aki seems to not justify his actions of any sort, making it hard to grasp the whole situation and story.

I can see some humor in this, and the art is a huge key in bringing this up high. The art is high def, but I predict another "damsel in distress" at the most critical times manga. We'll see, but I'm happy as it is.

i love the charcters , they are just too cool
aki is cool and mysterious and kana is not one of those 'protect me!' girls and is strong
there is a lot of mystery! especially about their past!
the suspense of wanting to know what happened with aki's brother
and what change will happen in kana's life
oooooh, i just love this manga

The first series i've read from Shouoto-san and it's Amazing! Not only is the plot with the Stigmas interesting but i'm really loving the characters, Kana is strong, likable. Aki is mysterious, cunning. And Jin! he's funny and i love the way he wears his uniform. Aki and Jin are reminiscent of the Touya and Satsuki from Millennium Snow But the setting's more darker then the light-heartedness of MS. Her art isn't disappointing. Very gorgeous with an Gothic touch. I love how she draws the guys' eyes.

I don't get the "Random" negatives reviews. it's not fast paced. i thought it transitioned very well. You want fast paced? Black bird is all over the place. this isn't.

Plus this is one of the Better vampire shoujos.

I completely agree with what kiari7!!! said. This manga is so RANDOM in a very negative way. I wonder what the mangaka has been thinking while writing the plot... It's so ridiculously fast-paced and often just jump from one place to another. Oh, and did I say that it was fast-paced?

I've read Vampire Knight, and yeah, it's not really that original, but even then I can't help but think that this mangaka has read Vampire Knight and just taken down notes on stuff she liked, and then just put it together again in a slightly different (incoherent) pattern.
(Note: It's not that I hate when a manga isn't completely original, but this is just a failure at trying to use an overused plot, which is quite the achievement)

But really, this is bad. The ONLY reason I kept on reading was because the art was fairly neat. That put aside, this is a waste of time.

This one is really sweet... I mean, really cool. There's so many typical vampire shoujos that make you want to gag... to speak the truth, this wasn't on my priority must reads. However, I did read the first two chapters, and I must say it holds quite the intrigue. It FINALLY has a heroine that can stand up for herself (thank GOODNESS) and the background is cool... some twin brother rivalry going on... somewhere. Anyway, very interesting read, and most definately not like the usual vampire shoujo. I love how laid back the female lead is too... so refreshing

First, I quite like the art. That aside, it seems like an interesting vampire love story. The vampire clearly isn't the hero and the heroine seems to be hiding things. Childhood secrets and hints about other mysterious characters that have yet to appear makes this series seem like it will continue to be interesting. Hopefully some suspense builds up as all the secrets come into light.

A Definite Read For Shouoto Aya   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0
by Lucca
October 18th, 2013, 9:45pm
Okay, first of all this comment is based off having read the english scanlations up to 17 and then continued on the Chinese raws up to 27 with basic knowledge of the language.

The art in this is beautiful. When is Shouoto sensei NOT beautiful? It's consistent and fluid and makes the characters and scenery look amazing. the action scenes are clear and easy to follow. Probably worth reading just for the art, if you're into that stuff.

Storyline is initally pretty shallow. Master/Servant, Vampires, Lycans and Tengu? Cliche to say the least. But wait! It deepens, gets better and best of all there is a clear explanation for all of it. It gets pretty jerky at your heartstrings particularly if you're a shoujo manga lover. Best plot out of Shouoto that I've seen so far. The only problem currently is that what is out in the English fandom at the moment is not yet to the point of revelation. Be patient and wait. You'll get your just desserts.

That said, world building is pretty limited. Not for those who enjoy immersing themselves in the world of the manga types.

Characters are cute, heartwarming and conform to some cliches. Kana gets some buff behind her later on but is pretty flat for a good while. Shouoto has used that time to build up the other characters (particularly Jin and Aki) and so she is left behind a little at the start.

Overall, a wonderful manga that works within it's stereotypes and has a solid explanation for the happenings. Nothing too mind blowing but a great read nonetheless. You should definitely be reading this manga if you like this sort of genre. Preferably by buying the books because it has now been licensed in English.

The art is lovely.. clean-cut, sharp, no funny angles. The characters - Aki, is handsomely drawn and Cana is a lovely female character, although in terms of character she is a half-full shell that needs more improvement (hopefully with later chapters?).

The story plot is kind of holey - although there is the childhood reference, we don't know much about what happened in-between - what happened to Aki and Eriya after the fire and why did they only find her now?

Later when Aki turned Cana into a blood servant, the plot just gets weirder. It seems that Cana does not even give the slightest objection when that happens, and when Aki expresses his love (in a roundabout way) she just happens to not notice. Really?

Some parts really don't make sense at all in this story - but hopefully it'll get better. a manga with THAT good art can't go too bad.. hopefully. fingers crossed
