From Viz:

There is a world of myth and magic that intersects ours, and only a special few can see it. Misao Harada is one such person, and she wants nothing to do with magical realms. She just wants to have a normal high school life and maybe get a boyfriend.

But she is the bride of demon prophecy, and her blood grants incredible powers, her flesh immortality. Now the demon realm is fighting over the right to her hand...or her life!

Black Bird received the 54th Shogakukan Manga Award for shoujo manga.

The only reason why i'm still reading this is because i feel too bad dropping a series that i've been following for so long. However, plot wise, this series is getting annoying. Oh and the main protagonist is dumb, weak, and ANNOYING. Maybe it's just me, but i'm getting annoyed with everything about this manga. Maybe i should drop this series after all. yup, gonna do that.

the start of this manga seems rather original, so i went on with it.
I decided to drop it after realising that the female lead is rather weak.

If you're into weak clingy crying female leads.. then this manga is for you =\

At first i thought it was gonna be one of those long draggy pointless stories but wow has it gotten better, by around chapter 30+ it gets REALLY good. Not that before chapter30 it's rubbish but it was just normal I suppose. Idk what people are saying about being unable to like characters cos I love some of them..
I think you should really give it a try

Although there are some things I don't understand just yet, I already love the manga very much. The relationship between Kyo and Misao is absolutely beautiful and I can definitely sense the love between them. Misao may be naive and useless at times, but a change happened when she went to meet Shou(yeah, it was stupid but she wasn't that useless. she didn't cry for Kyo's help - she did her best to win Shou all by herself). The most annoying thing is that she (as well as many other shoujo girls) gets shocked whenever her boyfriend kisses her or tries to go further than kissing.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Really, when "the Dragon" asks Kyo to have sex with his little sister in order to save her life. Misao was all like: "NOOO!! I'm the only one who can give sex to Kyo!!" while she's the one who can't at the moment.

Kyo may be a pervert but he's not bad. But seriously it is a bit rare to have a non-pervert male protagonist in shoujo.

I've been reading this manga for years so it seems like it'd be a waste to drop it now but, if I didn't have the need to finish everything I start, I would drop it in a heartbeat. I don't think I hated it at the beginning but the last volumes have been hell. I can't stand the main character, really, I hate everything about her, and the rest of the characters are average at best.
I feel like this manga, much like Vampire Knight, has overstayed its welcome. It keeps surprising me by becoming worse all the time. I dread the coming of each new chapter and I wish this mangaka would do me the favor of ending my pain....
EDIT: can't stand it anymore. Dropping it.

too melo-dramatic

I stopped reading after volume 6 but picked it up again seeing that it made past 15 volumes....

The base plot is interesting enough in the beginning (although cliche). The side characters are cute. The main female lead is your typical "bubbly, naive, ignorant" heroine. She can't be any more useless. I would have rated this a 7 if it ended earlier with her resolving the issues between the two brothers, but a lot of useless over-used plots prolonged it. Therefore, a 4--for efforts. The author try to installed a "difficult but overcoming love that will prevails" theme which is why I think this manga is too melo-dramatic, especially when I read the heroine's repeated speeches of their love.

Pathetic lead female, completely average "bad-boy" alpha male lead with his host club of minions who all love him so very much. I can only recommend it for people who absolutely adore formulaic shoujo manga.

I cannot like the two main characters at all. The guy is pervert and a jerk. The girl's specialty is crying and calling for help.

Plot is just plain bad.

Absolutely LOVE the story. The characters are well drawn and developed beautifully. Each chapter
is filled with a lot of love and makes me want to read more and more! The relationship between Kyo and Misao is beautiful. You can tell they bith really love each other very much and would do anything to stay together. Plus, it helps that Kyo is super good looking!!

Dropped within the first few chapters

I dropped this within the first few chapters. I really had high hopes for this manga. The plot seemed original, I read many descriptions and I thought it was going to be really good. It wasn't. The art was alright and the plot didn't appeal to me. I just knew that they were going to fall in love. The random creatures every where annoyed me. The characters got on my nerves. So yeah I dropped it. I don't know how people could find this appealing.
