As you can tell from all of the comments, there are those who will enjoy this story and those who will not.

If you're not a fan of women who are sexually harassed and don't stand up for themselves, then don't read this. Please note that I'm not saying that she doesn't have a backbone - in certain situation she does - but when it comes to the smutty scenes, she goes "Oh no! This can't happen!" but waits to be saved/interrupted. If that's going to annoy you, don't read it.

The male lead has a typical smutty-lead jealous demeanor, and he does regularly try to force his will upon her. If that's going to annoy you, don't read it. (He does get some better about forcing his will on her, but he remains jealous.)

Yes, the story is choppy in places, but it did have enough mystery to keep me reading. The story does go in simple arcs, so it's relatively easy to put down and pick back up again later, if that's your desire.

The art is fairly nice. The characters are all cute (even the parents - there's a story reason for why they're all so young). And I liked the majority of the personalities of the characters and their interactions. They were fairly typical archetypes in most cases, but they were still interesting.

The end... I didn't find it nearly as bad as most people seem to have. I didn't think it was rushed or hard to understand. It was a bit odd that
Spoiler (highlight to view)
the male lead was supposed to be "all powerful" but he was supposedly beaten up by a rival toward the end. One would have expected him to go completely "evil" and she would have to bring him back from that state, but that's not what happened. Perhaps this is what confused others so much.
That's probably the most inconsistent issue with the story. However, I didn't think the ending was that bad. The characters stayed true to who they had been all along, which worked for me.

I debated whether or not I wanted to give it a higher mark, but I do agree with some of the other comments about drawbacks of the story and characterizations.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Hiyo's refusal to even attempt to learn to fly or fight off an attacker really began to bother me toward the end.
I had hoped some of those things would be resolved better.

I dunno why people think this manga is terrible, i think it's cute and yea yea its got smuttish stuff from the bathroom to random guys groping her, but hey, one of the genres is smut and atleast it isn't so over-excessive in sexual intercourses like Renai-Shijou-Shugi (now theres something that u can bad-mouth).
I really thought that the romance was adorable and look, some girls (most girls) fantasise about being liked by many bishies, what the hell is wrong with that? I think Love Monster relates very much to what most girls desire to get from hwat guys and for the girls out there, dont try to deny that you have never once thought some random guy or someone you know of but never met in person was hwat (just like the random students at the skwl). When they go to China, i liked how Kurou wasn't allowed to be with Osora although obviousli he wanted to be. This just showed the stronger love that they share and how they feel lost without each other.
Look, those complaining it is too smuttish, think about it. They only ever "do it" in the final chapter and it never even shows you how they do it or show some pervy scene: It's Kurou's castle with Ahhhh and Osora out of it, ok?
She does act helpless but can't you expect that from the girl who thought she was the only human in that monster school and even though she's the White Crow, she doesn't know how to use her powers properly and so BACK OFF. You shudn't expect some girl who only just figured out she was a monster and in a weeks or months declare that she will protect the world from the evil, although she does save the world in the end.
It's a cute manga and i think it's something suited to read during the holidays or when you're at home alot.

I usually don't like mangas like this one but I really enjoyed it. I did start to find it a bit repetitive but it kept me entertained enough that I couldn't turn away. It's pretty much pure fluff the entire way through but hey, I like fluff sometimes haha.

This manga started with a lot of potential, but it ended horribly. Considering that I've already lowered my expectation (a lot) before reading this because of the negative reviews. I'm a smut manga reader so I don't really mind smutty stuff. But this is not the stuff that smut readers will like. It's more like attempted rape from different guys (any guy except the main guy). And...
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Nothing really happened between the main couple throughout the whole manga (I'm not considering the extra for the last chapter because it sucked... so rushed and not romantic...)
The only thing that kept me reading this is the art.

At first I thought it was a really cute series I liked the artwork a lot. But as the story went on I started to like it less and less. I hated it how the main girl (cant even remember her name) was so helpless and it REALLY made me mad how she couldn't even fly! I was really hoping by the end she would summon all her 'White Crow' power and become a really strong girl.
But no.
She freaking sucked. I think all the characters sucked. But most of all I think the ending sucked. I was really really annoyed because it seemed way too rushed, it felt like the author just got fed up with it too and just wanted to end it. I felt like I just wasted my life reading this story but I kept giving it the benefit of the doubt thinking that the end might be worth it but it SO wasn't.
And it was smutty but not the kind of smut that you LIKE to read about. I was hoping for a hot and heavy romance (the best kind) but the girl was just a prude and the guy was just a giant pervert.
I was not amused.

I enjoyed the start of this series.
The ending was so bad that it made me feel as though I had wasted so much time reading 12 volumes. I'm sorry but the ending isn't the average bad ending were you laugh and say ha ha ha Wtf? This is the bad ending that makes you want to shoot the author in the face and demand money even if you haven't payied anything. The ending makes it lose all credibility.

[edit by mod,possible spoilers ahead]

I will not talk about how Hiyo almost gets raped in almost every other chapter. I will not talk about how Kouro, her "fiance," is sometimes the one attempting the rape. (But it's in the name of TRUUU LUV so apparently it's all okay.) I will not talk about the incredibly ridiculous outfit that Hiyo has to wear for her school uniform. I will not even talk about Kouro's father's hair, although that is the one of the only redeeming features of this manga.

Instead, I will talk about Hiyo and how special she is. Hiyo is so special that she gets accepted into a private school without even applying. Hiyo is so special that she gets greeted by the entire school as soon as she walks in the doors. Hiyo is so special that she has a fiance that she doesn't even know about. Hiyo is so special that she has a demon for a father that she doesn't know about. Hiyo is so special that said fiance and said father are part crow-demon, supposedly the strongest and most noble of all of the demons. Hiyo is so special that all the guys want to rape her. Hiyo is so special that almost every girl she meets at first wants to hurt her for being so special. Hiyo is so special that all of this doesn't really matter because everyone ends up being her loving friend later. Hiyo is so special that when she gets throw of a cliff/tower/something, she grows white wings and finds out that she's the the legendary White Crow, most special of all special crows. Hiyo is so special that at the end of the series...

...you know what? I don't even want to touch the end of the series.
