i finish this in less than 6hours. this reminds me of harry potter where i absolutely felt the need to finish from cover to cover non stop, that's how engrossing it is. i cannot believe people followed this week to week, it must be especially painful to them!

first my heart thump from the sweetness of the romance, then my heart beat faster for the thrill of danger, then my heart nearly burst with the unexpected revelation! i cannot say more of it will ruin the experience, but really read this if you are a fan of original story.

It starts out sweet, then descends into a twisting turning plot that will draw you in and make you read it until the end. It is simply a perfect example of an amazing webcomic. As some below me have said though, DO NOT READ SPOILERS, this is an amazing story and reading spoilers would take some of the fun out of reading it.

Warning: This webcomic is not what it appears to be. It is both a horror story and a love story.

To be honest, I felt like I had been tricked by the authors. The story wasn't at all what I was expecting, and a lot of potential was given up for the plot twists and freaky nature of some of the characters. There was so much drama that it pretty much broke through my willing suspension of belief. The psychological aspect was also handled fairly unrealistically. It was disappointing, but the ending kind of makes up for it (at least the main character managed to stay consistent). Despite all its flaws, the story was still fairly engrossing (hey, I read all the way to the end), so I'd recommend it if you like mysterious, twisty horror/love stories. xD

In TV Tropes terms, this whole story is a case of What the Heck, Heroine?

I really do not know how to express the feeling I had when i read the last chapter of this manhwa. It was something so great, so tense... Really, you should read it and enjoy it. There are few manga/manhwas that may give you chills and even make you shed a manly tear. I meant it!

This series gets a lot of recommendations, most of which stating it is a very good manhwa, when I surf through the forums. I decided to give it a try, making this my second manhwa I've finished (the first one is Bongcheon District Ghost) And at last I see why people recommend this a lot--it is very good.

If you ever wondered what mixture of romance, mystery, supernatural, drama, and horror would be like, you can now find the answer by reading Melo Holic.

At first I found the story a great romance, although a bit too fast paced, and I expected it to continue like that. But then there came some creepy elements, which are not bad. And then woah, woah, so drama. And... a great twist awaited me after that. It's nothing like I predicted and expected to be at the start point.

Surprisingly, instead of causing me annoyance by having all these things together, Melo Holic somehow managed to express them at certain good times and sequence. If this story were liquor, it would be the one mixed by the best bartender. The plot is just fantastic; I can tell it is very well planned. The last arc is beautiful. What's even better is that the series never loses its main point--love.

The end, I mean that of the epilogue, is also something I'm so satisfied with. It is a good example of a great way of ending a story open-ended.

I don't understand why people keep saying this series is full of cliches. I can't agree with that. Sure it may have fairly common elements for its kind (I mean, common for any of its kinds) but the story is really something fresh and original. This is probably because I don't read enough though.

The art is nice. The techniques of storytelling not only through drawn images, but also texts and photographs are stunning.

This may sound like daydreaming, but the power of love is strong in this one. And that's just enough. I've now completely become one of those who recommend this.

Did I mention I finished it in one sitting?

Awesome Sweetness

One part sugary sweet, one part sour, one part bittersweet, and one part spicy.

Male lead is dynamic in a low fantasy setting. Female lead is the mysterious beauty. Well-written with common continuity throughout the series. Full-color is a plus and adds to the flavor. Interesting, but not unexpected twists will make you keep reading until the end.

Artwork is well-done as expected in a full-color manhwa.

Romantic melodrama at its finest.

Do yourself a favor, DON'T read any spoilers/comments on this series...just start reading and force yourself through the first 10 chapters or so...from there it gets very...interesting
(warning: not for the faint at heart...also, if you're a scaredy-cat (like me Dx) don't read it at 1am >__<)

Everything about Melo Holic is exciting. especially the starting few chapters. From its plot to its humour and including the great twists :-)
I really dont want to make it a spolier...
So in general-
'It's awesome'....

I really loved this story, but I feel like a few reviews here didn't give the story enough credit. Without spoiling anything, a major theme of the manhwa is the multitude of ways love stories can go - hopeful or hopeless, bittersweet or straight-up sweet, straightforward or convoluted, etc.
How does the author show this? By switching genres mid-story, multiple times. That isn't remarkable by itself; but it's remarkable that he makes it work, and work well.

I've always lived the artstyle or webcomics do naturally I loved this art. The story was unpredictable with plot twists everywhere. It was very gripping, I couldn't put it down. I lived the ending. It somehow seemed very bitter sweet but appropriate.
