Description
Thousands of years ago, Vampire King Akabara "Red Rose" Strauss lost both his kingdom and his queen. Since humans were unable to kill the queen, they sealed her away, erecting thousands of fake seals so that the king would never find her true location. Despite being pursued by relentless dhampires, Akabara continues to search for his queen to this day...

Akabara's quest takes a sinister turn when an entity called the Black Swan appears. The Black Swan inhabits the body of a young human girl every 50 years, giving her the power to destroy the Vampire King and his queen. With each incarnation the Black Swan grows stronger--will the 49th Black Swan mean the end of Akabara?

this is a great manga, I was hooked the moment I started reading because of the amazing plot twists and the beautiful art...
although if you're looking for a typical shounen manga you'll probably be disappointed.

Manga is not good at all at da beginning, but afta a couple of a chapters its like amazing. When the secrets got revealed, I mean honestly the way the past was revealed, the main characterz actions, all dat, amazing. But after that, it again got bad. Basically beginning k, middle amazing, end not gud at all. the high rating is cus the middle is amazingly awesome.

I got tired of the entire manga almost being a description of how strong the main character is, without any real violence to back it up. It's mysteries wrapped in mysteries wrapped in mysteries....and it seems like the "air" of complexity....was so strained that it felt like complexity for the sake of complexity...descriptions of characters will take most the time in this manga....you got almost no real action in it even though they're quite generous in the amount of pages telling how strong they'd be if they DID fight.

Hmm.. this manga is just 1 big long tragedy. There is no good or bad... just regrets and sadness and the actions guided by those feelings. Very frustrating and depressing manga in my personal opinion. If you like vampires... you might want to pass on this one, if you like comedy PASS on this one. I finished this manga long ago and if memory serves me right, not 1 single individual ends up happy here.

This series certainly gives the phrase
Spoiler (highlight to view)
" I'll even fly to the moon "
a whole new meaning.
I first thought this wasn't worth reading because the fight scenes seemed too shoujo-ish for my taste (A handsome vampire? Now where did I hear that before?). In fact, I even dropped it right off the bat. Wandering and searching for your lost beloved, it might seem pretty cool at first but would soon lost its novelty after one or two volumes.
But I was wrong. I picked this up again a few months later. And like they say, the plot thickens. You'll have to read more than 3 volumes to get a feel of what this manga is. I could almost feel the burden of the author, who is trying their best to paint a picture, a magnificent one. The execution might not be perfect, some elements might seem unbelievable, and just as in most tragedy series, some characters do get over-sentimental. But there's a great story to be told here. A story about a fallen vampire.

The quality of this manga fluctuates, in terms of its story portrayal and story plot.

The art is at best average. Sometimes it is not proportional.
I can say a lot more but I don't bother - not worth my time.
It is okay at best and lower than average at the worst.
I have put this on my "read this when bored and growing moldy" list.

finished this and have to say the one story i feel so sorry for the main character..
really good story almost made me cry tbh duno y i didnt.
this doesnt have much action in it even though the start seems like it does, its good for its story towards the end is jus reading a lot..
and by the genre saying its romance, not the ones where 2 people fall in love and blah blah blah etc
basicly best story iv read..

This is one of the few mangas I would bother trying to convince others to read. The story is very unique and interesting, with plot twists that aren't too far fetched considering the evidence and foreshadowing provided previously.

I really like Strauss too. It seems like he's really in control of the situation.

I'd have to partially agree with the comments which say the art is bad. It's not terrible. It's tolerable. But it's definitely not the greatest. Most of the female characters have bad taste with clothes. XD
