BLOODY kiss

Haha! Bloody Kiss! It sounds like an English person is saying, " 'Bloody' Kiss," instead of the actual meaning which does involve blood. Just thought I would share that... biggrin

Good as an introduction to the shoujo genre

Bloody Kiss is a very generic shoujo manga. It's got most of the cliches in it, and most of the stereotypes as well. Characters are one dimensional and other than the occasional
Spoiler (highlight to view)
'OMG I can't decide if I want to be with him or not!'
, there is no character development going on.

The main girl, Kiyo, moves into a big mansion that houses two vampires. There is absolutely no explanation on vampires by the way, and Kiyo readily accepts them as real (realism is thrown out the window here). One of them sets his eyes on her and decides to make her his 'bride'. A bride means to be a bloodslave to the vampire forever, but in a romantic sense. Sort of, it still comes off as creepy. The mangaka wastes no time in getting this ball rolling, and basically it goes like this:

Girl moves in with vampires - vampire decides to make her bride - girl gets blood sucked a lot of times - girl needs to decide whether to become his bride.

That's the entire story of Bloody Kiss. Any other character aside from the main girl and guy, are stock characters to fill up pages with dialogue (the second vampire only exists to appear in one panel in an entire chapter), they're nothing interesting. Then in the second volume a new character gets introduced, Kiyo's childhood friend. At the time I thought finally, something interesting was going to happen, but no, it gets quickly pushed to the side and it's really just a missed moment of character development.

That said, while Bloody Kiss is generic with bland characters and almost no plot (lotsa pages with just blank panels or filled with flowers), it is a great way to get introduced to the shoujo genre, since it's so cliche that you'll only like this if it's one of your first shoujos, when everything is still fresh and new to you. If you've read many shoujos before, your opinion will probably be the same as mine.

Didn't like the art either, it seemed like the mangaka had a hard time drawing the main guy vampire, since every once in a while he'd look quite different than the panel before.

I really loved this series, it has a lot of good things in it that make it a worthwhile read, things like a strong female lead, pretty artwork and cute romance. The only problem I had was that it was much too short, I would have liked a bit longer than two volumes with the characters. I definitely recommend this to anyone who likes manga like Vampire Knight.

Bloody Kiss was probably one of the most favourable shoujo short mangas. It's pact with alot of pretty romance and the fact that a vamps in it gives it more thrill. Although i really wanted it to last longer, the story was pretty lovely. I really liked this manga and i shouldn't spoil it but Kiyo falls in love with the bishie vamp and i think they are so kwwl togetherr! And that karate kid was such a lauf for me, although some of you took him seriously and even as a love candidate (cough cough -hmm rite) but becoz of him, Kiyo's love grew stronger.

I reccommend this to everyone who likes romance and i really think most of you will enjoy it>>

This is one of my all time favs! I had to order both volumes to have for my very own because I loved it soo much! The story was constantly gripping, the characters were great and the romance was super sweet. I also loved the art and the mangaka wrapped up the story really well. A full 10/10 for this one, definitely recommended!!

Somewhat predictable

The story's predictable and pretty typical. Although it puts a little twist on the plot with vampires. Still a lot of shoujo cliches are used in this. But I still enjoyed it. The art was very well done - with very detailed characters and designs. Plus it was very cute the romance. Bottom line - This shoujo is sugary, sugar plumed and typical but cute. Recommended for new shoujo fans, but readers who enjoy mangas with emotional issues will not like this. Also, I agree with everyone else that this manga could have gone on longer.

Aside from Bloody Kiss suffering from the usual shoujo tropes (inexplicably sudden romance, bad boy love interest, strong-for-the-sake-of-being-strong lead, vampires, social outcasts, etc.), it also suffers from some flaws of its own. First, the "special" heroine. I absolutely hate it when mangakas (or any storyteller) feels the need to have their characters say that the protagonist is special in some way. It's totally unnecessary, and it looks ridiculous when you put such an obvious effort into fluffing up your lead. Second, what's with the pseudo-rape? I realize that nothing sexual happens, but the protagonist is forced into an intimate moment, and that was a little uncomfortable.
I just can't recommend this unless you're super into vampire romances, and you've already exhausted every other vampire romance manga in existence. Well, maybe not to that extent, but my point is that this genre has been done again and again, and this isn't even a very good rendition of it, so you might as well try something else.

Decent enough

Its a pretty sweet story and leaves a decent impression considering its only 2 volumes in length. Its a pretty standard vamp romance with a few small twists but there isn't anything bad about that... my only concern is the ending, it didn't really feel like the ending as you are unsure of whether or not that 5% chance ended up happening.... would have liked to see that but I guess its fine as is. Not the best but certainly not the worst, its worth a read.

If you love vampires and shoujo manga, then I think you might enjoy this. There's nothing special about it, but it's a quick read and not a complete waste of time as there are cute moments and the art is nice to look at.
