It's OK for a first read. The first chapter was interesting, but it went downhill from there. I don't know if this is possible but I realized that some chapters were sort of like "fillers". I'm disappointed to see the manga end like this as it showed a lot of potential at the start of the story. The art is OK.

This manga is tacky and fan-service-y towards epic proportions. I thought it to be rather gross and perverted. This whole manga is one huge excuse. The excuse is to draw men in wings and wolfish looking guys that seem to all magically fall in love with a stupid main character and use this premise to draw perverted scenes. I can't believe this was labeled as comedy even - this isn't humor, it's just plain stupid.

... the manga "black bird" by Kanoko Sakurakoji borrows (O.K., pretty much steals) the idea of a world filled with monsters, the crow clan, and of course, the ever needed heroine with a hidden power, but it's better executed. From story telling to art, it is a lot more enjoyable and congruent than "love monster", and it also has a better chance to get licensed in the US since one of her previous works, 'backstage prince" has already been published and is well liked.

I liked it at first. I thought it was a pretty good manga since it made me laugh and the characters were interesting, but I think the author kinda ran out of ideas a little ways towards the end. It would have been promising, but there were too many (unnecessary?) characters and plotlines inserted and I think it was just too mind numbing overall.

I probably would read this again only once more after the scanlations finish, but after that, probably wouldn't give it a second glance.

Love Monster, in one word is just "cute". It's a verrrrry very shoujo-istic fantasy reverse-harem manga. Plotwise, I can't say much. But I read it for the humour. If you want a comedy then Love Monster is the right choice. However, in terms of an actual decent story, I'd say a *certain* manga by Kanoko Sakurakouji is better.

I felt that the story is kind of rushed and the characters are too predictable and unrealistic. The art is not amazing in my opinion and the feelings that should come natural while reading a story feel somewhat forced........

It isn't a bad shoujo manga and overdose of bishies most girls will probably enjoy, however the plot line is very plain - the heroine gets kidnapped, sexually assaulted and then saved by the hero, rise and repeat.

It was fun for the first 10 times or so but after that it went dull. Once any now handsome bishie appears it is clear that he will attack and grope the heroine all around... Kind of plain if you ask me, Miyagi definitely lacks the originality here.

Good sides - humor and a good art, yet the story was too repetitive for my taste.

Donít listen to the person below me, he/she doesnít know what going onÖlol Vampire Knight is good but the plot tend to change one to the next. And sometime it doesnít make any sense. Donít get me wrong, I have to read 7 times in order for me to like Vampire Knight, The story itself doesnít hold my attention as Love Monster did.

I read it and didn't mind it, but that dosen't mean I'll read this again. Love Monster definately had it's strong and weak points. Sadly, the weak ones are what kept me from really liking this manga.

First of all, the strong points, which is what kept me reading. It was light hearted and funny at times, and made me laugh on occasion. I also didn't mind the plot, although as one reviewer before me has pointed out, it was a little choppy at times. Lastly, it was the mysteries unanwsered in Love Monster that kept me going (i.e. about Hiyo and kurou, which I won't spoil for you), and it is ultimately what made the manga really bearable for me.

Nonetheless, it was the weaknesses about this manga that made it far less enjoyable. The big down side so far about Love Monster is the heroine, who I found myself utterly despising despite my efforts not to. She was just to thinkheaded and silly for me to like her, and the number of times she was rescued and almost sexually assaulted frustrated me no end. The other down side was the smut, which while I don't mind in stories, seemed here a little distasteful here.

I seemed to have ranted about this a little more than I intended. Still, overall I would recommend it. However, if you looking for a supernatural manga along these lines with more likable characters and decent plot, I'd say try Vampire Knight first.
