Description
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.

Shoujo, Smut mangas are generally cliched anyways - it's how interesting the plot goes, no?

It's not that bad - I actually like how the story's progressing. The artwork's more than decent and although there are cliches, it's still a good read!

It's much much better than Love Monster and most definitely worth your time. Something that's got a right mix of everything although... it could do well with more smutty scenes =P

standard shoujo fare with a bunch of cliches... childhood friends, rivals in family, student-teacher relationship with a bunch of bishies and suggestive scenes. if you've read one, you've read 'em all. nothing special about this.

She is a thinker and he is a mystery

I love how the romance is complicated by the question of motive. Kyo interesting - he goes after her persistently and she in turn considers the situation. She does not mindlessly falls in love and go with the flow because they are childhood friends or because he is handsome. I think what really draws me is her reactions to situations and trying to understand the mystery of who kyo is. The politics of his world should be interesting - i am looking forward to understanding that as well.

it was in my wish list, but after i read it...
I dissapointed..

the artwork is good but average,
it is not dazzlingly awesome, nor has unique/ strong characteristics.. it dissapoint me to see that the one to be a bishie... i don't think he's a bishie.
and the story is not really special, contrary on my expectation. When I read the summary, I think this would be good...
But it turn out to be a typical shoujo manga.

Meh. It's the usual shoujo. Childhood friend turns into love. Of course, he's a tengu. But no biggie because he's quite a bishie. The way he licks her is highly suggestive. (I mean seriously. One part has him over her body sucking on her shoulder while she's panting for breath because she's hurt. If that's not suggestive, I don't know what is.)

This manga is bogged down with cliches..... but in a way that works!
Yes, there is the whole teacher-student thing, and the lead seems to make everyone fall in love with her, but somehow it's not so bad!
I like all of the characters so far. I have only read to chapter five, but from what I can see, Black Bird seems pretty promising.
I just wish scans would come out sooner sad!

I've read until vol 5... i can say it's quite decent. nothing too great but it's still nice. i think the beginning was a lot better... i'm looking forward for the next chapters. =)

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Seriously, i have READ a lot of manga but none deserve a 10!
I like how Misao is reacting. She isn't the type who just runs into a hot guy's arm just because he's hot and willing to marry her...!
She did consider the fact that he's a monster and her future with him. I like how she measure carefully whether the Kyo is lying or not...( she's WAY better than Bella in Twilight...if you know what i mean)
If you are chinese.......you ar in luck, u can read ahead to vol 4 and FARTHUR if you ar japanese...

It suck if u can read only english since there's only 5 chapters


DEFINITELy must read it!!!!
