From Tokyopop:
The members of the Takashiro family share a terrible curse: only human blood can slake their thirst.

Too long-winded

Read this since I liked Hatsukanezumi no Jikan. The art is just as pretty, but the plot didn't capture me as did the former.. it was a pretty damn original vampire story, but I felt the the plot was way too drawn-out. This IS one of the mangaka's first works, though, so I guess that could be an explanation.
If you're patient and like the genre, you might like this one a lot.

two endings

yes, thats what i want to believe with this manga. one with depressive ending and one with hopeful ending. that way i wont feel cheated.

on the whole i like this manga. it is sombre, dark, and slow but the atmosphere feel right. the characters may be depressive but they act like real humans. well, i do like happy go lucky type because i read manga to get out of the reality of real humans, but occasionally reading about characters that act realistically is good too.

i wont recommend this to just anyone. as long as you okay with slow pacing, depressing monologue and heavy incestuous tones, you may read this. if not, dont bother.

fatal last chapter

Nice story. We can felt deep emotions within the story between Kazuna and Chizuna. So the artwork, really nice in drawing the character's feeling and conditions.

IMHO, I really really really DISAPPOINTED with the last chapter. The last chapter made me feel so sorry. I agree with 狂気 , "I really wish the last chapter was never made", and with zero-chan, "Lament of the Lamb would have been perfect with only 46 chapters". IMO, one chapter to turned all down, and more fatal, LAST chapter T___T So because the last chapter I can't give 10 T___T

This is one of those mangas that the talk of life and death is the main theme......ALOT of talking which makes it dark and depressing. The only gripe I would point out to myself is that the characters never really seem all that real (in a manga sense) and are just mixed up of their tragedy and feeling sorry for themselves or each other.

Well....not a bad read really .

Never finished this, so I can only speak for the first 30-ish chapters, but I wasn't really impressed. It had some really interesting moments, but the angst and drama was so repetitive I eventually couldn't take it any more. Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of angst, but it was all the same stuff over and over again. Yawn. I like both vampires and incest, so you'd think that a manga that combined the two would hold my interest, but -- nope.

Touching

This one made me cry, and I haven't done that in years... That's how touching it is.

Great artwork, but what really makes it special is the story and characters that makes this manga feel, in lack of better word, real.

I can't do anything else but recommend this.

Sometimes it seemed that the characters were making a mountain out of a molehill. Needing to drink blood and such - yeah, that's not good, but the protagonist's actions over it ... it's the sort of angst reserved for actual vampires who sleep in tombs and drain the blood of children. Their reaction doesn't seem rational, and a lot of that comes across as forced drama.

On the plus side, the focus stops being on emo-vampiring and changes more to Chizuna's health, which is a much better source of tragedy.

It is actually quite a well told story for the most part - it has a lot of atmosphere, but there were a lot of eyeroll moments whenever characters started talking about the darkness within or whatever. There were also a few weird inconsistencies, but I'll choose to blame the translation ... or maybe the author had a brainfart. The last chapter in particular ... well, yeah - I second that other person's comment about skipping it. It's a bad ending and it's inconsistent with what's been established so far. Hell, it effectively erases the entire plot as far as the main character is concerned, making it all seem a bit pointless.

I think I've made it sound really bad - it isn't. I recommend it if gothic atmosphere and heavy tragedy are your thing. Put up with the character's whining and don't approach this as a vampire story - it's a story about terminal illness and that becomes clearer once they tone down the brooding-vampire-fear-my-darkness crap.

very sad and good manga

Despite the fact that i don't really like this vampire-theme, Lament of the Lamb was one of the best manga i have ever read. All 47 chapters were very bitter and sad. If you like deep dark drama then this is your very choice. And as for the ending - it's just as great as the whole manga.

The author changed his mind sometimes in the middle of the story, but that didn't bother me. Almost to the end I felt this was one of the best manga I've read. I like to think that the manga ended on the second last chapter. I really wish the last chapter was never made, or that I would have never read the last chapter.
