Rion is on a mission to find her missing friend Shihoko. Her only two clues are a card given to her by Shihoko and a confession that her best friend was in love with a vampire. Thus she heads down to a club filled with pretty male escorts whom she insists are vampires.

Suou, the owner of the club, insists that he doesn't know anyone by the name Shihoko at all. He claims that the hosts are not vampires. After he tries to chase her out of the club, Rion throws a very, very expensive bottle of wine onto the ground to prove that she is not leaving until she finds the truth--and finishes paying for the wine by working part-time at the club.

While trying to rescue her friend, she realizes that Suou and the other hosts are not the group (vampires or not) that kidnapped Shihoko. However, in the middle of that life-endangering truth-seeking expedition, she's saved by another group of apparent vampires. So, who are the real vampires after all this?

About the manga bloodhound I can say that the first chapter was good,It grabbed my attention
The second and third was okay but I can't relate to Rion's feelings.Can't connect emotionally maybe because it was under horror and fantasy.
As for the romance between Rion and Suou I can say that it was cold...I mean I haven't seen any romantic scenes between those two,so If you are looking for a lovey dovey shoujo manga can't find it here..
About the ending it was like a puzzle that can be completed by using your imagination...And I don't like to imagine,I want to read what exactly happened,so I can say that the ending was bad and incomplete.

BUT wait I don't hate this manga..It's nice and has a potential to be more entertaining.I love Rion's character although she's a typical heroine..
I still recommend you to read this manga if you like stories about friendship,light romance and a very light horror.

Kyaa when I saw the cover I knew right away it was Kaori Yuki's work !! I think it's normal people rank it low because if you're not used to those twisted stories you'll be surprise.

But if you like this author's work you'll like this one to ! Ever though it's not as dark as always...

Ten But....

Although I gave this a ten score, this is entirely because it does capture the horror theme that you would expect there to be in a manga featuring vampires far more so than any other manga on I have read so far. It is a little disappointing that the ending seems rather abrupt and inconclusive such that you end up feeling like there should be a lot more coming.

this was such a good mangaa, i fell in love with such a horor-based vamp lust for blood
Although the romance is petite its so unique and really rare to see a manga with that much potential.
I love the different style of art and i think it really suits the vampire theme..

Its just the ending... IT WAS SO SHORT!!! its like someone cut off the story just when it was getting really interesting and more story plotted.

Great Read, Disappointing Ending

I really loved reading this. It was cute, funny, full of bishies and mystery... It had a lot going for it! I just felt that it ended too soon, didn't realize its full potential... and had an ending that didn't really fit it.

Don't get me wrong. I don't always need an ending where everything is tied all up in a pretty little bow. I know there's room in the world for all sorts of dramatic endings and open-ended endings and even tragic endings. I just... was ultimately disappointed by THIS ending.

Also, I felt the first, second and fourth chapters were excellent. The third chapter, however, was just kind of unnecessary and... weird. I think the volume would've been better with the third chapter left out and an epilogue written, instead. Man, would I love an epilogue.

It might sound like I didn't like this manga... but on the contrary, I actually loved it! I just felt disappointed by the ending. Had it ended differently, I just would've loved it even more so.

yeah the story was nice but you have to really put your head in it or else it would get pretty confusing... <yeah that was one of the reason i kindda quit reading Angel Sanctuary... if im not mistaken> anyways... aside from that it was also kindda boring nothing new here.. but still the art was beautiful! all the boys are bishielicious!! and Rino had her moments as well even though sometimes her eyes are kindda distorted...

anyway... it was entertaining while it lasted but it was boring and cliched and it was predictable! <well... to me> or maybe its just because i was expecting too much from this...

The first couple of chapters were okay, but the ending was absolutely terrible, it could have ended way better. And I don't consider this romance at all...

It's a bit confusing... the last chapter suddenly refers to a subplot that has never been mentioned before... o.o

But I like Blood Hound ^_^
