Wasted potential  
by animeangelgrl
January 16th, 2020, 9:24pm
Rating: 7.5 / 10.0
This could have been so good but the lack of communication between the main characters just kind of killed it for me. I recently stumbled upon this manhwa again after a couple of years and I couldn't figure out why I couldn't remember anything about if but after re-reading a chunk of it I remember.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
My frustration with the MC sleeping with his coworker for no reason just hit me way too hard. In my mind, he ruined or at least tainted his relationship with Bat Boy that I couldn't get over it for the majority of the manhwa. Just every scene with that coworker was frustrating, he just existed to throw the main couple off path and it was needless drama in a manhwa that could have been so much more.


Definitely not worth the time of reading it again. The only reason why I'm leaving this with a 7.5 is that I don't want to fully re-read it to determine if the rating needs to change.

Realistic portrayal of emotions, bad plot progression  
by NanamiPyon
August 10th, 2019, 10:29am
Rating: 7.0 / 10.0
I could appreciate how realistic the portrayal of each character's thoughts and reactions was. I see a lot of people saying it was annoying, but the MC's emotions were actually very human, which is why it was so ugly and might not appeal to younger readers who can't empathize with others.

The problem is that the main couple's development is odd, both for the reason Min Gyeom falls in love and for the circumstances under which they finally get together. Then, the ending right before the side stories is pretty sudden. Thankfully, despite the drama in the epilogues, you do get scraps of more content about them as a couple and you learn more about Chun Sam's parents, who are one of the best additions to the narrative.

Before concluding this comment, I'd like to remark that the art uses very dead colors and there often aren't any backgrounds, giving the world an empty and hollow feeling. This dead atmosphere improves towards the end of the story, but it's still a fault worth mentioning.

The fucking MC and his BF fucking cry like every other page. Probably even more than females with depression on their periods. Was some of the crying warranted? Sure, but much of it was really unnecessary and annoying af.

Heartbreaking and then Heartwarming  
by fisukisuki

Rating: 10.0 / 10.0
There's a lot Heartbreaking moments! From Flashback to Present to Future (aka the Extra Chapters). But all Conflicts is Cleared or Solved. So it was all Good at the end. It was HEAVY in the Drama and Emotions rather than about the Vampire thing. But everything is Well Written and Well Drawn. I admit that there's certain part of the Translation that wasn't translated well so it might confusing certain parts. But it was all bearable.
All the Good Characters is Enjoyable and Likable in the end. They all are realistic in the way they all have flaws and all, but still a Good Character. The arts is Absolutely Great from the start till the end.
Seriously, This Manhwa is Absolutely AMAZING!!! Not only about Feelings and Vampire things, it was also about Bad Family and the Family of Choice. The Family moments were Heartbreaking at the beginning, and very much Heartwarming at the middle to the end. If you read this Manhwa, you will understand what i mean. It was So Amazingly Wonderfully SO GOOD!!!
Absolutely RECOMMENDED!!!

If only there wasn't such a drop in scanlation quality

Rating: N/A
I can't really make an acurate comment on this webtoon because unfortunately it took a nose-dive hit when its first scanlation team ceased to operate after chapter 36 and it never quite returned to be fully comprehensible ever again (that is to say, the online fan translations from chapter 37 onward were complete and utter shit). I followed through to the end only to satisfy my curiosity, but I refuse to acknowledge that I ever read chapter 37 to 86 at all since I couldn't understand jackshit about any lines or dialogues. I just hate it when this happens urgh.

what are you all going on about this was great

this is like the first time ive seen manga/manhwa whatever have a character that experienced abuse and deal with it realistically.

like the regular plot that yall are used to where once they feel loved their issues are fixed is so unrealistic. learning to accept love and support is a long difficult process. yes of course all the drama is "self inflicted". it comes from the CONFLICT of being an ABUSE victim and as with literally ALL STORIES conflicts need to be ACTUALLY RESOLVED and arent fixed because you fall in love. he had to learn to accept kindness and love. he had to learn to feel secure and not constantly suspect that all "good feelings" were temporary and would eventually crash down. the author referenced the abuse and rejection Min Gyeom experienced as a child SO MANY TIMES. all the times he felt any comfort with his father eventually became rejection. he learned to feel unworthy of love, to feel that it was all temporary... so of course (!!!!!) he took a long long time to accept Chun Sams love. and the love of his parents. like thats how these kinds of things work!

i loveddddd this story so so so much and i loved the main character, i think he was the best portrayal of abuse victim ive seen in a manga/manhwa ever. i think its really sad that everyone found his healing annoying and stupid

Not bad

I actually liked this. There was a lot of drama, but honestly it mostly felt like realistic relationship drama. Maybe it's hard to relate to for those who haven't had any/many relationships, but it genuinely felt relatable. Way more relatable than I expected a story about vampires to be.

Of course the MC was creating his own problems. That's what people do. If no one ever created problems, then every relationship would be perfect forever. That isn't real life and it's not super enjoyable to read either. In the end, they grew up a little and learned how to be more open and to support each other.

It didn't suck..?

This will be a rant comment. There is no need for you dear reader to take my comment at face value.

Which certainly means not to take other comments seriously either.


I don't understand the negative comments.
I think it was pretty obvious the webtoon would take this route.
I don't get why everybody hates it? I think the execution was good. There was enough foreshadowing, and their actions were very understandable.
It isn't that melodramatic as most of the shit that everybody seems to love so much. I was expecting some shitty, terribly written webtoon, but I think it was actually good enough.

And this thing about "saving himself" and shit?? Everybody is going on about how cliche it was, but him getting into an affair like this was actually a refreshing twist. He was going through an emotional instability, and there was this "reliable" dude next to him who seduced and manipulated him. He is human, what do you expect?? He was jealous of Sam, and also deeply scarred from getting used like this as a child. I agree it was melodramatic and annoying at times, but definitely not as terrible as everybody claims it to be lol.

Pretty sure most of those people would enjoy having Geyom raped by Sam cuz, hey at least his first would be Sam, amirite?

Also, he is a girl cuz he cry? How sexist is that?

I wish it sucked because of the awful translation...

...but it actually sucked because the source material was bad. The original idea was cute and could have been perfect for a cheesy slice-of-life. But the author decided to throw in some unecessary drama while also turning the MC into the most annoying, retarded, whiny primadonna ever. Fortunately Bat Boy (sorry, not good with names) and his family kept the webtoon afloat. Kind of. They were all enjoyable characters and made me cringe a little less while reading Raising a Bat (which, by the way, is a very cute title).

I guess I should at least point out the things that didn't work but it would be an endless list. I can try, though (mild spoilers ahead, which IMO you can safely read):
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
- A clichèd shoujo girl was disguised as MC. I know guys can be feminine and I have no issue with it, but honestly apart from the first chapters MC never even once looked like a guy to me. I'm actually surprised he didn't grow tits and a subscription to Cosmopolitan by the end of the comic.
- Said MC made awful, brainless, plainly stupid choices. Like, Bat Boy confessed he cared about him. But just because he said "friend" once, MC decided to reject him and have sex with the first person he found.
- The first person he found was Artsy Boy (I know I know, sorry about the names). IMO he wasn't as bad as others described him, but he could have been developed better. His motives got explained but the reader couldn't feel them. I appreciated the author trying to develop his background story with MC Doppelganger Girl... but she failed. Artsy Boy and Doppelganger Girl were so in love... but she decided to fly to another country for two years and when she got back she was expecting him to be loyal? After losing contact for that long? Girl you're not a Junjou Egoist protagonist, so stop dreaming.
- What about the attempted suicide? It was hilarious. And they kept bringing it up just so that everyone could feel cringey- ehm, sorry for MC again and again.
- The whole "let's adopt our vampire son's boyfriend" was straight out awkward. Awkward to the max.
- Artsy Boy's little tricks and MC's over dramatic reactions made the whole thing look like a Spanish telenovela. I'm surprised nobody came out of nowhere shouting "Que haces besando a la lisiada!".
- Where does Bat Boy keep his wings??
- I can accept Bat Boy being a vampire. I can accept not having a hint of information on why vampires exist in this world. But I can't accept MC having "too much blood". Like, what the **** does it even mean?
- About MC's father... I don't know where to start. Why was he taking MC's blood? Why did he dislike MC so much? He was a super clever doctor who just couldn't get that if his wife died it wasn't his son's fault? (I mean, MC didn't choose to be the main character...)
- I still have goose bumps from the scene where Bat Boy and Easygoing Friend almost kissed because Bat Boy wanted to practice. H e l p.
- The sex scene was totally heartless and I couldn't feel anything at all. I had the impression the author didn't know how to manage this part of the story.


Okay that's it. Now go read it because Bat Boy is a cutie.

It Was Good

Yeah... It was great and all but it honestly got boring after the first few chapters that I considered dropped it but I stayed for the fact that I expected some background on various things and still left with nothing like that.

This webtoon was fluffy while it lasted (and thank goodness for the colors and style) but it felt all rushed.
