Normally I can't stand shoujo manga. The so-called heroine often lacks self-respect and is dense, weak and annoying. I'm no feminist, but where's your dignity girls!? Orange Marmalade is a sigh of relief. The main character may be confused and lonely, but she's no fool. I even found myself thinking, "I wish I could be friends with her."

While this manhwa is about vampires, don't expect something Twilight-esque. In my opinion, it transcends your typical vampire plot with its depth and unique perspective. It shows the pain and angst that prejudice can cause.

Also, the artwork is beyond words! Orange Marmalade is the most beautiful manga/manhwa I've ever read. It's all in color, so even if you don't find the plot interesting, it's worth reading for the art alone.

Hmm, surprisingly refreshing. I mean, there must have been a lot of stories like this, right? But for some reason THIS one feels so new and fresh. I'm not sure why.
And the best part is that I even like both the main characters, they're both just interesting and odd characters at the same time.
I'd say you should check it out whether you like or don't like shoujo and whether you're a girl or guy.

The vampire-romance genre has received quite a few blows in the past decade. That just makes it all the better when something as great as this is born from that same genre.
Don't go hating the whole of the genre just because of the past decade. The original Dracula novel was pretty much a vampire-romance.

Anyways, speaking of THIS one in particular, it is AWESOME. Excellent balance between comedy and romance. In fact, the romance doesn't really come in for a while, the author takes his time and gives us a fair amount of back story about the current state of vampires in society.
I'm a guy and I don't make a habit of reading shoujo [only read Card Captor Sakura and DNAngel when i was 12 and a bit of Switch Girl a year ago which i dropped as it went stagnant] {Edit: I've since picked up a few more}. But I would say that this shoujo is perfectly suited for men as well as it doesn't just gush on about a 14 year old girl's thoughts about her 'one true love'. It deals with discrimination/racism, parental neglect and the like. Denial for the sake of self-preservation is a large part as well.
The comedy is in frequent doses. I can't help but laugh or smile whenever a super deformed/chibi face pops up, like when someone is running away or Ma Ri's little brother is doing anything. That guy is hilarious.

I read up to ch16 in one go and would have continued to the last [17 at this point in time] if i wasn't so sleep deprived.

P.S. make sure you check out the 1:57 minute song from the soundtrack that she sings in chapter 8. It's simply great.

EDIT: mmmk, it's not so great anymore. But I'll write some more when it's over.

EDIT 2: Totally degraded siginificantly by the end.

Not just a story about romance - BUT A MUST READ!

This story is much more than what I thought. It's not just about high school, or romance, or drama. The true heart of this story is about discrimination. The story is based in a world where vampires are real and they live among us. Not only that, but they have many rumors about them (many not true) and people hate them with prejudice.
This story is very hard for me to read, but also hard to put down! For many of today's youth (in America but also in many other Western countries), it is hard to imagine this type of deep-rooted hatred of a race or people. However, humans have historically been very prejudice. It was not that long ago (and in some countries - still) that people were banned from living in certain areas just because of the people belonged too. This touches on that subject in a way as to not offend any specific group. If vampires were truly real, how would people react? Would we be friends with them? Marry and love them? Would we throw stones at them or banish them? How about tie them up and burn them like "witches" used to be?
I have not had a series get such strong emotions from me in a long time. Being half white and half "other", I understand all to well what it is like to have people turn up a nose at you. Read this with caution, but I HIGHLY recommend it!
If you have a teen or pre-teen, you might want to read this along with them. It is much more than a love story and might need a few discussions.

I love this! This is really good! Usually, Vampire shoujo manga is always the male lead that is the vampire, and stuff like Twilight ... If you're sick of this kind of plot, then this story is definitely refreshing for you , because it turned out another way round! You should try it out, instead of hesitating about reading it or not when you didn't know how good it is! ;D

Now here's a refreshing take on the vampire romance genre. I disagree with comments saying that this drags on. It is lengthy, but it never really gets boring. I feel that it actually needs the slow pace for the character development and room for the female lead, Ma Ri, to come to terms with her feelings. She's got a lot to sort out after all. And by Chapter 57, it's all the more satisfying and special when she does. I'd liken it to a butterfly emerging out of cocoon. With a story like this, I would be extremely pissed if she declared her love to Jae Min and they kissed and walked off into the sunset. And then I'd soon forget about it after that, because then it would be like every other romance story.

In short, if you were to summarize what goes on between chapters 1 to 57 in a clinical way, then no - there is "no progress". However, with every panel there IS progression in feeling, just as there would be in (a slightly more heightened version of) a real life romance... if you were a teenage vampire girl, that is.

I must point out that there is a great sensitivity with color and mood. This is the best part of it. Every panel is rich, and there were a few moments that took my breath away. The way the artist paces the story makes you feel as if you're living in this world rather than looking in on it. Oh, the guy is extremely cute too, so maybe I'm a bit biased. wink

I would say that the only negative thing about this manga is that it's a bit depressing, and maybe a bit *too* subtle in parts. All in all, I can tell that the mangaka put a lot of time into this, and I loved every moment of it. Most of the characters may feel cliche, but they also feel special in a way, and none of them are one dimensional. I read it all in one night without sleeping (and during finals week), and I don't regret it at all. Still constantly refreshing the page to check if there's a new chapter yet. Don't skip this one!

I'm flabbergasted by the high ratings this series receives. The premise - what if vampires were a repressed caste in modern society - is intriguing, but the execution of this premise is so shallow.
In fact, everything is: the villains are stereotypical and shallow, the politics of discrimination are simplified to the point of caricature (vampires drink blood, therefore they are bad and everyone hates them); everybody in the story is too quick to blame, and most are too quick to forgive; the protagonist is mainly defined by being a hesitant crybaby; etc...
Also, the pace is glacially slow for most of the story, and the ending is small-scale and unsatisfying. For instance, Chaerin could have been interesting, but in the end experienced what I can only call character anti-development...
Disappointing.

Orange Marmalade is a very addicting manga that has twists and turns everywhere. Each time at the end of a new chapter, there's always a cliffhanger at the end of each chapter that will make you taste for more. The characters, in my opinion, are very different and have different situations. Also, it is very rare that you see a main female vampire character; the male vampires are always dominant.

I'm so glad that the mangaka didn't add anything that might have made the vampires less appealing - like supernatural powers, or burning at the very sight of sunlight. At this rate, fans will be standing outside of the mangaka's very house, yelling for chapters to rush through faster and immediately.

i gobbled all ten chapter straight in one sitting and mangas rarely do that to me now a days!! i was barely breathing.. it has this charm thats hard to withstand.. like some sort of spell spell that makes you addicted to it instantly! it was so awesome!
the art was beautiful just like in the animes.. it was so real up to the shaking i the trains..
the characters are also quite a bit unique.. though the leads seem both a bit emotic, but they are quite endearing in a way.. i guess that is their charm! biggrin
anyways.. the story.. i kindda wish it was going the way i want it ion my head because i believe that this is not your typical shoujo vampire story!

I feel that the story plot is pretty good for a webtoon. The author managed to pull my heartstrings (T.T in regards to Mari and Jaemin) and it's like I'm watching anime with all the coloured pages and all... it keeps me want to read on and on... hahaha good job to the author. wink

Overall, even though the story can be a bit draggy at times, but i will still recommend this. Good plot and art. wink
