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.

I can't remember how many chapters i went through before dropping this completely. (somewhere around Vol 1, i'm guessing) I find this series overrated and horribly written and cannot believe this is "Award-Winning Work."

I personally feel sorry for Misao, having those cards dealt for her
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Having to choose between being killed by creatures who want her blood or flesh or losing her virginity THEN marrying her childhood friend/first love Whose an disgusting, perverted loser who clearly wants her body and power? not to mention Misao has to lean on Kyo to survive Since chapter after chapter she's attacked and Kyo flies in to save her with his tongue of healing. (She has powerful blood yet she's completely Weak?) Regardless what Sakurakoji-san says, technically over time wouldn't that amount to an pint of drinking her blood? yet Sakurakoji-san mentions Misao being an strong girl, is someone's definition of an Strong girl someone who doesn't go insane or commit suicide after things that happened to them like Misao? Besides it's Way too fast paced and i still think it's SO Stupid that after that possessed guy slit Misao's throat with an boxcutter, when she has no idea what's going on he's all "You really don't know? i'll tell you!" then tells her about the prophecy. Seriously?
The only character i really liked was Taro but not long after he came in, I had to drop this.

Wonder how much longer this manga will drag on...

Reading this manga literally makes me sick. The protagonist is a weak, senseless girl who allows her boyfriend to treat her like an object and his possession and feel her up whenever he wants, and this is supposed to be super romantic.

I don't mind stories with super possessive/abusive boyfriends and weak submissive girlfriends, what I mind is when this sort of relationship is viewed as romantic. And in this case it is.

Am I supposed to be impressed by the fact that he jerks her around and receives little to no resistance from her? Is it supposed to make me like this manga? It's just disgusting, this manga is. You start off reading it, thinking it might be okay, but after awhile, it just takes a dive and never surfaces (I was going to say resurfaces, but it wasn't very good to begin with, so . . .)

Unless you're a creeper who thinks that this sort of relationship is romantic (and if you are, then yes, I am judging you), stay away from this manga. What it won an award for is beyond me, but it is probably one of my two most hated mangas in the world, the other one being Kyou, Koi wo Hajimemasu , and while I rarely give ones, in this case, I believe this manga thoroughly deserves it.

I didn't really like most kanako sensei's work, because I dont really like TOO corny mangas. But Black Bird is juust right, perfect for those who are into love monster. I prefer Black Bird over Love Monster in my opinion, since this series has so much drama and suspense you cant just get enough of this series. Yes, the storyline is almost alike, and the series is not TOO kiddy. The Art is just wondeful and I got a new favorite mangaka on my list =]

This one is pretty good. I agree with people here that said this one better than Love Monster. Even though the story kinda similar in some way. But the main girl is not as stupid in Love Monster. I want to know more bout this series smile

What's with misao? she is whining almost every chapter :/
What's wrong with her? and she's crying like she has constipation or something.
i've read till chapter 26 and i can say, it was the WORST MANGA i ever read.
misao makes a sad face and everyone's like 'what's wrong dear misao?' LIKE IF SHE WANTS PEOPLE TO HAVE SYMPATHY FOR HER D:< she's a useless bitch!
like how, in chap 26, kyou had to have sex with another woman.. you should've look at misao's face at that time.. i wanted to slap her then throw her in a river.. if she's so jealous, go and have it with kyou herself!
she's like kaname from vk, selfishly keeping kyou for herself.. it's not called love!

i hate how everyone cares about her.. as if she was a 9 year old chick :\ she's 14 or 16 for god's sake!!

geez, misao spoiled the manga for me.
DROPPED 1/10!

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.

This manga has a lot of the basic shoujo storyline, but with a twist that was pleasantly surprising. Can't wait for more!

I download like 10 volumes when it was popular and had high rating. Now it's 7.9 I feel so idiotic! *CRY*

Why did this happen to me? Next time I'll read something before I download it. *And hell did the manga distaste me when I read the first volume... Ew... Horrible horrible smutty stuffs.*

My precious downloading time! My (neighbour's) precious internet package! Damn it this wasteful series!
