Koizumi Kanna is infatuated with the man who came to the restaurant she works at and ordered a burger with no onions. Little does she know, Toujou Ren is interested in her as well, but for a different reason. Kanna just so happens to be the mirror image of a woman he knew a very long time ago. It is for that reason that he saves her when she nearly dies in a car accident. But the life he gives Kanna is far different from the one she lived before, and she's not certain it's the kind she wants...

THis was a freaking amazing plot! In the end I was just blown away and this is definitely not your typical romance. Even though the ending was tragic I like how it was like a game of tag and they seem to have the ending w/ each other no matter what. And yep there's depth in this series, which i appreciate! Love it even for a tragic ending!
The reviews pretty much say what I want to say, so I'll just add a couple summarizing thoughts...
Fascinating ideas were presented, but the execution was variable. It was hard to understand what was going on until I completed the entire story both in the art and in the dialogue. I'd say sticking with it until the end may clear up some confusion. I suppose that this story wouldn't need to be much longer at all, but rather should be cleaned up to present what's important in a clear manner (although I can't do anything about that, of course).
I must say though, I'm impressed with the lingering feeling I have - I feel this indescribable lurch inside me concerning the overall theme of the story, and that proves (to me, at least) that there's this raw intensity there, despite it's variable presentation. Definitely a tragedy, in the end.
Nicely Done Original Story
Although the artwork is fine (but non-distinctive), the strength of this manga lies in its storytelling. The story flows linearly but the way the mangaka fragments it, helps echo the mental state of the characters and adds dramatic effect to the reading, IMHO. I thought this was a nicely done original take on old themes (i.e., vampires, destiny/fate). Good stuff and definitely worth the read if you're looking for something a little more cerebral than the average manga...
Complex yet rushed
I won't get too into the plot many reviewers already have but I just wanted to give my opinion. Like many I was intrigued by the aspect of the beginning of this manga, the budding romance and the vampire elements. I also thought the added mystery aspect was really interesting and when explored was quite interesting

a serial killer imitating vampires was quite a dark turn for this already dark and serious mange
this hints at our leads pasts was also really interesting. But like many the ending seemed just kind of wrong...there was no real indication of the plot heading into this strange reincarnation territory, but what was more confusing was the

introduction of gods and the worlds they create, strangely religious for a manga about vampires
I think that the manga-ka bit off a little more than she may have planned and got too wrapped up in the many ideas she had thought up while creating the manga, it almost seemed like she had no firm plan on how she wanted to end the manga. Further more I think she thought she might not get another serial after this and so threw all the elements she could on her canvas. Had she maybe had more time or volumes then maybe this manga would have a more coherent ending. Still I thought and still think the manga holds its own in the elements it has, beautiful art, interesting and complex characters but ultimately being a bit more daring than other manga's of a similar target audience.

I love this mangaka's work. It's always got that dark, gothic, and sad kind of taste to it. I liked this story, it was very interesting and amazingly it HELD my interest, since I don't usually like vampire stories with the same annoying girl-falls-in-love-with-vampire plot. I'm glad this one was so different and unique. Like some people already said, my only complaint would be that the story was so CONFUSING and murky... but oh well, it just added to the mysteriousness I guess. This is definitely a very heavy and mature romance manga, not your light happy-go-lucky shoujo kind of read.
i hate tragedy and vampires but this was still a very memoriable read. (Its actually a wonder i picked this up)
it was actually very memoriable but not for a reason that i liked. it left me with a feeling so sad that i almost felt helpless. this feeling was most likely due to the destiny aspect of the story, in fact i thought this was going to be the first vampire manga i'd like but it stopped being addicting when the destiny crud came in(i really believe that it is what you do that affects you - karma- but i really hate the idea of a predetermined fate).
overall an interesting read worth your time
Fujiwara Kaoru has done it again! Artwork: Beautiful Plot: Confusing, but interesting
It's not like it was perfect, though... I mean, the ending was.... eh. But it was really a great read. The recommendations aren't good, so I'll give you some: If you liked it, read Akusaga, Dolls, Switch, Fetish or Mukashi no Hanashi (the last two are by the author of Vampire Girl).
if you like depressing mangas...
the first chapters were usual shoujo which contains mystery, which was very nice for me... then it became depressing and more depressing(and mystery was still on). but there was still romance. the drawing is really good. *spoiler* if you like sad endings you should read this *spoiler*
Starter off really interesting
Started off really interesting, however, the sub-plots were a little clumsily delivered and the pacing was a bit slow. By the time I read chapter 9, I was so bored with the manga.
What pity though that the art was good but the plot so-so.
This manga is very refreshing; the artwork is nice but not distracting. Instead, we get to focus on the thrilling and very interesting plot. There's a lot of psychological drama, and this story is a new look on the lives of modern day vampires.
Note: There are TWO volumes in the original Japanese edition (used by SiH), but THREE in the Chinese edition (which VK is using) because there are 17 chapters total, and the chinese publishers decided to break it up into 3 volumes.
