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.

Note that the artbook contains a new Koori short story.

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.

I first saw this manga about a year ago and I didn't bother reading it (don't rem why), BUTTT man do I regret it!!
I ended up picking it up because I'm a huge fan of silver diamond (balls to tokyopop) and now the author is also on my favs list smile
ITS one of the best series ever and im very happy that Storm In Heaven picked it back up (Thanks guys). I ended up reading through to vol 13 in one night!! I cant wait for the next release (man the story is intense at the moment!!! ) ,

>So yh READ THIS SERIES! u wont regret it!!

The last time I read Koori no Mamono no Monogatari was when there was only about four or five volumes scanlated, and recently I decided to reread the manga and catch up with it. If you haven't been keeping up with the series (or if you haven't been able to get past the first seven volumes) READ IT.

Like mentioned in a previous comment, the plot doesn't start to get intense until about volume 9.

Anyways, I love this series, just as I love Silver Diamond. Light BL, deep character bonds with each other, etc.

Out of the hundreds of BL manga I've read so far, Koori no Mamono no Monogatari is my absolute favorite. I love everything about it - plot, characters, relationship developments, art, etc. - it is a truly touching series that has made me tear up more than once while I was reading (and re-reading) it.

With that said, I've to admit that my first impression of Koori wasn't good at all. The quality of the 1st volume scanlation was poor, and the artwork as well as plot at the beginning were extremely ordinary, so I thought about either just skimming through the series or dropping it altogether.

However, everything improves with each volume and the story really comes together. Perhaps what I love most about this series is that nothing about it is over-dramatic; it stays real while working with the complications of human emotions and human nature. While I consider Koori a fairytale, and it has its fair share of comedic moments, it also has enough angst to satisfy an angst-lover like me.

To make a long comment short, I strongly, strongly recommend this series!

The best shounen ai since 'Sono Yubi Dake ga Shitteiru' (ok KnMnM technically came out before that) trust me i've read hundreds of yaoi/shounen-ai by now. At first the 24 volumns were a bit daunting, i didn't think it would would've held my interest for more than a volume or two (blame the short attention span) but i got through all 24 volumes within just a week.
The art was gorgeous and the story was even more so. Although the BL content was light, the love and respect that the main chartacters had for each other was conveyed beautifully.
Highly recommended!

The story is simple because it's targetted at younger readers. However, the characterisation and emotions between the 2 main characters and even the cast are intense, well-written and rival many similar stories.

Great manga, but very, very light on the 'shonen-ai' aspect of things

Lovely story, very sweet, sometimes quite tragic, sometimes much lighter and fun. Beautiful art too, especially later in the series - the style progresses to become something much more like what you could see in Silver Diamond. Just don't expect anything much to happen with regard to the shonen-ai aspect of things biggrin

I read this manga after reading Silver Diamond and I asked myself, why didn't I found this sooner? It's great really. You might be irked with the grammar on the first few scanlations (deal with it, at least there's someone willing to scanlate it), but the storyline is very good. There are cute moments, angst-ish moments and of course, touching moments.

There is plot, mind you ^__^. For you to see the plot of the story, you'll have to read volume 9 and later. And yes, you can say that the plot is slow but not without a good reason. I think that character building is one of the reason a story is good and it is good to spend more time on that. You can see how Ishuca cracks the ice-cold shell that surrounds Blood and why Blood is so attached to Ishuca. You can also see their past that makes them who they are now and how they strengthen their bond.

The art also improves later on in the story. You could see the improvements if you've been reading, It becomes more..beautiful. And dayum, Blood is one bishie I'd want to get my hands on. And I'd like Wild as a bonus if I can, those long, silky black hair are one to die for.

If you are a shounen-ai lover or just one who loves romance with spices of fantasy and action, you have to have this in your reading list.
