Worse than Twilight   
Rating: 1.0 / 10.0

The art is the only positive.

All the male leads/romantic interests are abusive (mentally AND physically), r@pe-y a**holes, excluding one dude who conveniently disappeared. I suspect he might come back later on as a d**chebag too. I hate the message this manhua promotes regarding abusive relationships. It's offensive, misleading, & just plain disgusting. It's realistic in that it paints these abusive, horrible men as the victims. 'Look how much he's risking by keeping her locked in that room against her will after he killed all those people she cared for/threatened her! That's how he shows his love, okay? Soo romantic!!'

I've described in more detail how the male leads are terrible in the spoilers tag below.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
EXAMPLE 1: throws a girl to his subordinates to be used/abused. Keeps her from thinking of betrayal or suicide by using a power to make her feel excruciating pain whenever she begins to do so. He's also dragged her to be thrown in a room w an inhuman beast for a while. At one pt he tells her she's wearing too much, rips her clothes off, & throws her into icy water. Then literally TORTURES her by keeping her in a magic circle that will alternate b/t unbearable heat & freezing iciness until she 'gets used to it'.

EXAMPLE 2: kidnaps another triplet bc she showed him some kindness once while he was undercover. He keeps her chained up & threatens her/kills people in front of her to hurt her. He even takes her for a 'walk' w a metal chain shackled to a collar around her neck. On top of that, he uses his powers to control her every now & then, & manipulates her mind/memory so he can see her cry in pain. He calls her bitter tears of shame/humiliation 'sweet'. He basically erases her memory then has her fall for him in illusionary situations created/controlled by him, then lets her remember the truth every now & then so she can stew in self hatred while kept chained up in his chambers.

EXAMPLE 3: Meanwhile, the main lead for the last triplet is ice cold, & never showed any signs of liking or caring for her until the author conveniently got rid of the one male character who seemed alright (though he had a scarred & "ugly" face). Somehow we're supposed to be believe him dragging her around & treating her like a blood bag is romantic & signs he likes her. Note: her blood is valuable bc of her powers & increases his own powers, tastes esp good, & he drinks from her w/o warning, w/o permission, & painfully/violently.


All these men are, of course, drawn as the prettiest of pretty boys. They're beautiful, which is supposed to further the lie that these relationships are romantic, as beautiful as the art. ...Please excuse me while I go regurgitate my last few meals.

And what makes it worse is how the author frames these trashy men as sympathetic/pitiful. Like their actions are ok not only because they're Hot, but because they had painful pasts. And yes, it's true that they did have pitiful pasts, but men like this should NEVER be seen as romantic interests, much less male leads. Just because you've been hurt doesn't give you the right to torture and twist the people around you - the people you claim to 'love'.

Some notes that last comment missed out

Since 2012 the storyline has progressed fairly well and there is a lot alyyang123 has missed out.

For starters, the series is borrowing a lot of things fro World Of Darkness series Vampire: The Masquerade to the point it will click both the direction and many concepts the moment you know this. Be it, a lot of things have been streamlined to make the storyline work. So things like sex is at play, but you don't see it, often there is violence but you don't see all of it. VtM was never pornographic, but it was sexual quite heavily and you can expect any.

This is why Yi Tai and Fan Le Lao act the way they are, their members of the Sabbat and like their reference from VtM, their not good guys. hell, if you bother to read Chpater 77. Part 8, Fan Le Lao rapes Zhao Yan. There is nothing on screen but the storyline tells you he has done it and is the reason why she hates him.

The Camarilla are a little more "heroic" then they should be, but their still the closet thing to the good guys as per in Vampire the Masquerade.

All and all, the series itself is laying out like a typical campaign from VtM, in sorts.As I said, there is some streamlining going on so some stuff like "Clan Weaknesses" don't exist, but some elements like the Assamite's being assassins are at play.

If you know its based on VtM, you'll maybe like it for what its referencing, but hate it for what its leaving out. As WoD itself is a very complex universe, and VtM is one of the most complex. So for Vampire Sphere to lack some of it, is a shame.

Plot had potential

To be honest, I had high expectations in the manhua. The plot premise is quite interesting, with science fiction and fantasy components incorparated in the beginning; however, after the initial introduction, the entire series goes downhill.

My first problem is with how the author handles character development and dynamic characterization:
-In the beginning, Ji Yan's personality is inconsistent in the plot and constantly changes between a selfish, jealous girl who thinks only about herself, even going as far to permanently disfigure her sister to achieve her own means, to an insecure girl who feels constantly outshadowed by her sister's achievements. After she becomes oppressed by Wu Cheng, the author sets the second personality as default and completely erases any serious faults in her mindset.
-Zhao Yan is practically saintlike with her ultimate perfection. The author writes her character as a cool, intelligent beauty who is incapable of making mistakes, traits that are considered desirable for women in Chinese culture. Almost every misfortune that stumbles upon her path is a result of outside forces or her own kindness, and her personality rarely changes throughout the manhua.
-Yue Jian's personality after she falls in love with Jing Ren is painfully reminscent of another main character of a Chinese manhua directed towards teenage girls, Lin from Qishi Huanxiang Ye. Actually, did I mention only one manhua? I'm sorry, I meant to say almost. Every. Manhua. Protagonist. Ever.

My second complaint is with the love interests:
-Wu Cheng is scum. Complete (non)human trash. Not only does he regularly abuse and humiliate Ji Yan, he also allows his subordinates to have their way with her as well. Some examples of his treatment toeard her include forcing her to remain in ice cold baths or direct flames for long periods of time; using her to lure unsuspecting human men to abandoned areas and making her watch the resulting carnage; regularly drinking her blood despite her obvious discomfort at him doing so; forcing a bat in her bloodstream that causes her excruciating pain whenever she even thinks about commiting suicide or betraying him; and forcing her to present herself to insentient monsters that want only blood and flesh. There is only a sick and twisted sense of love present, if at all.
-Le Lao takes second place in the list of sociopathic lovers. He kidnaps Zhao Yan against her will, killing her father when she does not reciprocate his affections. He also takes control over her mind and forces her to betray her Yue Jian, and then forces her to forget her memories and manipulates her into falling in love with him.
-Xuan Chi dies conveniently.
-Jing Ren disappears conveniently.
-The only guy left who can compete for Yue Zhao's affections is the Student President, who remains unnamed but becomes suddenly relevant in the plot... conveniently.

The plot was generic and hard to follow at certain points; for example, the Mei Yue Min is considered important at the beginning of the story but is almost completely forgotten about until some of the later chapters. The author also depicts the notion of vampires differently depending on the context, treating the Student President's trivial consumption of human blood as morally okay but rogue vampires needing food for their survival as despicable and deserving to be killed.

All in all, the highest I would rate this is a five. It's not the best, but it made somewhat sense and did not feel like a complete waste of my time.
