Saiki Takaya has an image to keep. Everyone knows him as a fighter. One day, he trips on a small jewel'd shaped bottle. Whats interesting about this bottle is that it seems to be following him around. One night in his dream, the bottle is opened, and out pops a beautiful girl with wings, who just turns out to be a Demon. Lilim-chan, as she is called, must live off the life energy she recieves from kisses in order to survive--but what is Takaya to do now that she's free and feeding on the life energy of everyone in his class?

I didn't really like the plot that much. It seemed as though there wasn't much of a plot in the first place. The series seemed to initally focus on the kissing, but eventually they eliminate that completely for another, unsuprising plot development.

There is little to no character development. The only development that I could see for the main character was in chapter one, and was very brief. I feel like they added characters as were needed, and didn't really take the time to develop them.

Drawing Style
Very good, I would have to say that it was a good read and the drawing was pleasing. A very high point of this manga.

I guess it got more interesting towards the end, but I would have liked to see some more character development, and possibly some back-story on Lilim-chan. I didn't really prefer the ending as well. I feel like it was very abrupt and anti-climactic.

An interesting manga, but I personally wouldn't recommend it.

This was one of mizuki kawashita first works, and i think jump wanted to use this as a pilot to see how it did, though like his current work ichigo 100% they could use a little more depth instead of following the genreal shoujo elements. So in genreal
Story: needs one that is more deep
Chracters: they had defining points, but diddnt devlop them
Drawing style, truthfully i myself would like to buy one of his original, there really good
Enjoyment: i liked it personally, but then again im a mizuki fan. so its a good read for its short lived two volume 24 chapters.
