From Storm in Heaven and one of their legacy groups, Bamboo Feathers:

Deep in a cave lies a demon trapped in ice who will eat any human who dares enter. The demon, Blood, waits for the human who will cry the purest tears, for the gem formed from those tears will break the spell that binds him.

One day, a young man named Ishuca appears in the cave—and knowing that his weak heart will not last long, he has come to die. Touched by Ishuca's gentle nature, Blood gradually begins to change from the cruel, ice-cold demon he once was.

Next time, when I see so many low votes for a manga I will definitely think twice. So many people said in their comments that "you won't regret it", "absolutely the best" and so on, but I did regret it. Again, it has a lack of depth. If you like simple-minded love stories then congratulations, this is for you. But if it's the other case, you shouldn't waste your time.

First of all, I CAN'T BELIEVE IT IS FINALLY COMPLETE! I fell in love with this manga circa 2010 and followed its progress for a few years, but stopped around 2013 when only 14 volumes were scanlated. I just felt like it would never see the end. But it happened! I am SO GRATEFUL for all the scanlation groups who have worked hard on this series for years! Thank you!!

This was an absolute joy to read. I adored the first half, and years later, I fell in love with it again. The last ten volumes were just as perfect. The characters have gone through so much, they all changed. And sensei is an amazing mangaka - I fell in love with all the characters, even the "villains". There is not a single character whose fate I wasn't curious about. The story is brilliant. Never once did I felt bored while reading these 24 volumes. And sensei has a brilliant way of mixing humor, romance, fluff, angst and even pretty dark stuff in a flawless way that moves me so much there were times I had to stop reading for a while because I felt like my heart just couldn't take more. The art is amazing. The first few volumes definitely have that typical 90s style, but it progresses rapidly and by the 7th or 8th volume, it's just drop-dead gorgeous.

This is the type of manga that would be a fantastic read even without the romance. But the romantic love is definitely there, and boy, it's such a wonder to witness. As one of the reviewers mentioned, the manga switched magazines sometime after the Toei arc, so after that, there aren't any kiss scenes. But the thing is, YOU WON'T NOTICE IT'S MISSING. You really won't. Blood and Ishuca share such a tender love, shown in so many ways, that you will not forget, not even for a second, that a great love story is part of this tale. (The same goes for the Wild and Rapunzel, too.) I greatly admire that.

I really don't know what else to say. My mind is blown, my heart is full with emotions. I still can't quite believe that it's over, but oh, it was such a magnificent read. I'm sure I'll be re-reading Koori again and again.

Seriously. This is the best shonen ai ever. I'm not a big fan of shonen ai as I'm more into yaoi. But I can say this story is much much better than many shonen ai & Yaoi I've ever read. I love Silver Diamond too. Really love. But the story on Koori no mamono was much deeper, and darker, and more shonen ai than SD (Since it's obviously they're love each other...and there're kissing scene) LoL. The story much much more interesting after they introduced the main villain (I think it's around vol 8 or 9)

The art became much better & gorgeous on each volumes. There are Characters development; such as from an innocent guy into a mature one. The relationship between the demon and the human was soooooo sweet!!!! I'm melting! The story wasn't that cheap!!! seriously. The main theme of this title was about their relationship, but it was packed completely with an adventure, action, drama, humor (not as much as silver diamond) that mixed into an interesting story. So you won't feel bored reading it.

I don't know if both of them are lovers or not.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
But in the end they're living together and claimed that they're love each other
. The funny thing is...early volumes you will get a few of kissing scene. But in the middle till the end, you won't get any - except for the kissing scene that sensei didn't completely draw and the scene of sucking blood from the neck (That I imagine as sexy scene. LoL). I think because the magazine changed from shonen ai magz into shoujo magz. Damn.

I love Blood. He's sooo sexy and gorgeous..and over protective. I always think that he's one sided love as Ishuca is a lil bit.. moron xD

highly recommended for those who love bromance, shonen ai, or yaoi.

Ok I gotta confess something. The first time I came across this manga, I didn't really like it. I read about 7 chapters and then dropped it. But later on I picked it up again and boy am I glad I did so. Don't be fooled by the first few chapters, they just have a feeling of a human and a demon travelling together and coming across different things. But nope, that's not all. The plot progresses really well and you wanna know what's gonna happen next. The character development is simply amazing. And I mean it when I say amazing. It is great. The relationships...just wow. Gorgeous art. Really beautiful. It might be old styled but it's still dazzling and beautiful.
Highly recommended. Defenitely read it and don't miss out this master piece.

Just wish someone could pick up the rest of it and translate it. Sigh >.<

So this will make you cry. They have just such a sweet relationship Ishuca and Blood. Though I wish he's get that Blood's fricking in love with him.
But more than that the story of wild and rapunzel is the single greatest thing ever. Though it wasn't until I read their story that I got that they were talking about that rapunzel.

... actual BL !! User Posted Image

The story is interesting, the characters are either cute or cool, overall it's a great read. But why does Ishuca have to be so freaking dense?! Come one, a little kissing and/or (erotic) licking never killed anyone!
There has to be some doujins about them out here. I'm gonna find those! >_<

And I can't wait for more. I'm very much looking forward to future scanlations.

Its really sweet. The romance is cute and pretty nicely done. I would recommend it, but as it goes farther on the shounen-ai moments decrease, and they were pretty light to start with. Anyway, emotions are shown really well and you understand the motives/reasons why everyone does what they do.

The Rapunzel story was really cute but
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
would it really kill them to give us one canon romance scene between rapunzel and wild, just a kiss or something

Edit: @asrodeia yep, i meant wild, i read it awhile ago

Honestly I liked the manga a lot, especially the relationship of the protagonists, in addition to the story itself is fantasy. Obviously the story is not far behind, it's a shame that the group that was in English and not continue drawing, I have to stay with the desire to know what will happen. Happy reading to all / as!

I had just started this series yesterday and finished all of it (including all volumes) in one day. This manga is so funny and is quite creative. It has it's sweet, funny, and painful moments, and the bond between Blood and Ishuca is impenetrable. They went through so much and only until the end of the manga did they finally find some peace. The art wasn't that appealing at the beginning, but as you continue to read, the art gradually becomes REALLY eye-catching. I always respond with giggles and "OMG, bishies". It's one of those long shounen-ai, but it's worth the time to read. I enjoy this series and her other work, Silver Diamond. If you are needing something to read, then go ahead and read this one.
