Description
Enter Misaki, perhaps the most innocent and most sincere young lady there ever was. Itís almost inconceivable that she could be a vampire. And with her powers as a vampire, she could easily entice any human to do her bidding... but she chooses not to. Especially when it comes to Kuroe, a young author who has a deep running past with vampires. This wonderful story of pure innocent love charmingly bonds Misaki to the readers. Sheíll absolutely delight you with her earnest love for a human and her resolve to protect a willing mutual relationship versus turning Kuroe.

The manga is based on a set of doujinshi released by the same mangaka. Many of the story arcs in the manga are based partially or wholly upon the doujinshi.

Lolicon master-servant relationship! Haha, I love it. The boy is mild-mannered but kickass competent and loyally devoted, my favorite. Innocent.

I sincerely doubt that most people who take a crack at BLOOD ALONE expect what they receive. Not quite action nor slice of life nor even a standard supernatural story, and in a fashion similar to gunslinger girl, any lolicon-style romance is firmly put on the back burner. It's a unique blend of genres that is highly relaxing and atmospheric, and yet at the same time all the more intriguing and mysterious because of the air it so carefully cultivates. Ultimately, whatever it is trying to do works splendid, and I always walk away feeling entertained, yet strangely unable to articulate the complete reason why.

That's it. This is a vampire manga but doesn't focus on fighting, blood lust, violence, darkness...

It's a warm and innocent (loli) romance manga. If you want to find lighthearted romance slice of life series with an odd theme (vampire in that case) this what you are looking for.
Anyway, I agree that this manga is more suitable for seinen reader than shounen.

Solid story-telling, good characters, interesting plot--I'm glad someone picked this one up, as I'm not sure that Infinity Studios is still in existance and I was afraid I would never see the end.

I love this. It's a brilliant mix of a bunch of different genres, it flows well, the characters are incredible, and the story is interesting. I think my favorite aspect of Blood Alone is the flow of events, coupled with the dialogue. The pace is slow, with each chapter very neatly covering one event, or portion of the plot. And with every chapter, I find myself feeling overwhelmed by the characters and the story. The slow pace gives it a kind of slice-of-life feel, but unlike most titles in that genre, this one has amazing depth to the characters and the story that make it feel ... significant.. There's also enough action to make it not feel boring or uneventful, and a touch of detective/mystery that really makes this a well-rounded title.

Also, Misaki, with her heart-attack-inducing-cute personality, and the dynamics between her and Kuroe, will leave you overwhelmed in pretty much every chapter.

One of the few titles I can give a 10 rating without feeling like maybe it's undeserving of a perfect 10 somehow.

great story, character interaction, little touch of mystery & comedy etc.
i wouldnt say that its a romance manga like some would, but a nice mix of genres.
strange that people say that if you'r an action fan, not to bother with this series. i would disagree, there is just enough action in there to keep me interested. this is in my top ten and i am a seinen/action reader mostly.
highly reccomended.....
such a shame this is no longer scanlated

It's quite a drift from all those series about bloodthirsty vampires who're interested only in power, ambition, yadda yadda, etc.

Throw in pure hearted romance, a dash of drama, a drop of mystery and so forth and you got Blood Alone brewing. smile

Though... be warned that it is rather loli and has a bit of shounen-ai or possibly shotacon content(largely insinuated for now).

i love this story. i love the relationship between both main charas. that's so warm and cute. however, i find it a little bit strange that a 20-something old guy shares such warm feelings with a (around) 12-year old girl. that's a little bit odd for me... a little bit pedophile-ish, i''d say bigrazz. i instantly start to think about nabokov's "lolita" XD. no matter how i look at it, it seems "disturbing" that his relations with the girl are more than brother/sister, guardian/guarded, father/daughter (O_o?) relations. for now, i like the situation between them, but i just cannot imagine anything more going on between them... not at this stage. on the other hand, i'd HATE to see kuroe going out with another woman ;P. he and misaki would make a cute couple, of course if the girl was a little bit older ;P. which makes me wonder about one thing... will misaki ever get older as a vampire? O_O

But, one of the greatest series' I have ever read. Throw a bit of death note, some slice of life comedy thats actually built on something other than physical foreplay and you get this. Classic funny scenes, not 'haha' funny, but a feel-good laugh with no worries. Yes this series doesn't have much else to back it up, but if you're looking for multidimensional characters, intriguing mystery, realism down to the dot, with some heartwarming romance thrown in you get this series. Recommended for everyone. 10/10.
