Description
From Viz:
Kaya Satozuka is a brilliant secretary who excels at her job, which is why she doesn’t bat an eye when she’s assigned to be personal secretary to Kyohei Touma, the very difficult managing director of Touma Foods. It doesn’t faze her when her new boss seems determined to make her fail, and she even manages to take it in stride when she discovers the secret behind his prickly behavior…he’s a vampire! But while Kaya easily adapts to late nights and keeping a schedule of his “dinner dates,” will her ultra-competence help when Kyohei’s smoldering gaze starts turning her way?!

50 Shades of Midnight   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

With some impact play and some bondage, this would be a better version of 50 Shades of Grey than the original. The story is quite similar (even though Midnight Secretary tells it well, and 50 Shades is full of bullsh*t), and the characters in Midnight Secretary (Kaya, Kyouhei, Marika, Kyouhei's mother etc ) remind me of the respective ones in 50 Shades.

... till it moved to selfish jerk/pathetic woman in love territory.

Having said that, I stuck around mainly cuz the heroine was so awesome. Loved her spunk in the beginning chapters, and that kept resurfacing throughout at odd points (like how refreshingly self-aware and perceptive she was about people and her situation) in the manga which made me sympathize with her sometimes. Although it's also a pathetic lack of self-respect if you're enduring that kind of situation.. "It's all part of my duty as a secretary" *rolls eyes*

At least they improved it towards the end, but some parts in the middle (considering I liked the heroine very much) just made me sad.

Really Good.

I used to have doubts about smutty mangas. I thought it would be sappy love and lots of sex, but I've been constantly surprised by mangas like Hapi Mari, Emma, Kimi wa Pet, Mars and now Midnight Secretary. Yes, there's sex, but it's not the focus and it's actually very beautiful or very sad depending on the situation.

These stories are captivating, realistic (to a certain degree), and downright amazing. I really enjoy them. This one in particular was fun because it was "supernatural," but perhaps that made it a bit more sad. The fact that they're so different, that they come from different worlds and there's a certain amount of effort to keep a distance is very disheartening. Even after they realize they're love there are still walls up.

But the heroine is amazing. A constant annoyance in manga is a weak character. Yes, women are sensitive, yes, we tend to cry about stupid things, but crying all the freaking time is unacceptable. I think Kaya was beautiful, strong-willed, professional, but still just a soft-hearted woman. Yes, she had her moments, but it's okay every once in a while. That's normal.

I also really liked Kyouhei. I'm really into successful businessmen in mangas, not really because I like their condescending attitude, but because when a guy puts you before his business, that's some sweet love. I also like how they could have anyone, but they chose someone average and not glamorous.

I also like family background in mangas and many mangas lack that. Family and friends, that's what makes you into the type of person you are so you can't just cut that out and focus just on a relationship. Whether it's trying to escape a family, look for your family, fit into your family, I love when it includes that. There's more to life than sex and your lover.

Love, Passion, Family, Business, Drama, that's life and when you have all those balanced in a manga, that's a good fucking story.

I can read this over and over again without ever getting tired of it. I love everything about this. The art is absolutely amazing and so are the characters. I don't think anything has compared to this (in regards to smut) and i find myself comparing other to this. I swear this has completely ruined me for other manga's haha. My absolute fave <3

This was one of the first mangas I came across, so I had a lot of choice when I decided to read this.After looking at the art and reading the first two chapters I quit...OH HOW I WAS SUCH A FOOL...I've come back to this about a year later and , wow it is really good, I can't find fault in anything.The fact that the manga only has 35 chapters is amazing, because each chapter was used to the fullest it really felt like it was an appropriate amount..The mangaka was amazing, because she choose story over money, and didn't let the story drag on for the sake of money.I'm actually happy I didn't read this back then because its really feels like the best manga I've read in ages...Seriously read it ! Properly ! Don't do what I did smile

Why?! Why must it end, makes me so very sad. *sniffles*
I enjoyed this series so very much, as it progressed it became better. Comedic, cute and always beautiful. The two main protagonists were awesome. They were also cute and funny. I wasn't much of a fan of the smut though, was more interested in the story. I'm so sad to see this manga go. I highly recommend it for it's occasional hilarity, enchanting characters and the basics, which piqued my interest.

I'm Beginning To Get Scared...

It's a pretty amazing manga, but the potential it has is starting to get sloppy and go down. Kaya... she started out really strong, and still kind of is, but she's becoming a 'I only think about him' character. I hope this doesn't turn out to be another typical shoujo, especially when it started out so well, with so much potential.

Aside from that, it's a really good read, the plots not too typical, and I do love it, it's an amazing manga, it's just that I always get caught up in the little things, so I seem to magnify them until I dislike them. I think that's my personality, so I hope what I just said won't be a bother to anyone. ^.^ And who knows, maybe this is just a momentary arc that will pass. Then I can edit this and say it's pretty flawless. But I just can't see myself doing that yet...

We'll see if I change my rating and if it gets better at the end. I can't see myself dropping this as a read, but if this goes on, I might become a 'I'll read it later' person.

One of the best office romances I've read   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0
by Stickerhappy04

The boss-subordinate relationship in this manga is played out really well. The mix of an obnoxious executive and a diligent secretary is a rare find in josei mangas dealing with office ladies a.k.a. OLs. Usually, the office lady is incompetent and clumsy, but the heroine here is extremely talented but not without fault though. She's the type to stick to her sense of duty to the point of giving a 100% of herself. This weakness is taken advantage of by her boss who also appears to be a supernatural heartthrob.

I was first turned off by the whole vampire concept. However, when I read the first chapter, I found myself finishing the series in one night! I even came to like the vampire twist because of how the vampire society was conceptualized in this manga. It's truly a josei gem!

One of the best mature supernatural romance manga i've read to date and certainly one of my favorites. The characters are strong, the plot line is interesting and keeps a good pace, theres humor scattered throughout but of a more toned down theme (not much in the way of slapstick). Interesting take on vampires included in the story too. Sadly there are not a lot of manga around that are similar to this and those that are are not even half as strong. Well worth a read if you like supernatural romance.

This was unexpectedly good office romance manga... I have read it because I wanted to read some manga about vampire, but this was way better than I expected.
I really recommend this one as one of the best romantic mangas...
