Long ago, in an epic battle of might, King Phelios defeated the Vampire King Duzell. And as both lay dying, Duzell swore that his reincarnation would find King Phelios' reincarnation and exact his revenge. A hundred years later, the moment of reincarnation has arrived...the only problem is that Duzell has been reincarnated as a harmless house cat. And to add to his frustration, he can't find the reincarnation of King Phelios. Luckily, he has been adopted by Phelios' granddaughter, the teenage princess Ishtar, through whom Duzell may be able to track down who in the Phelios tribe is host to the great king's reincarnated soul.

I thought this was an interesting manga until I got to the last 5 volumes...

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
as in when it became apparent that Duzell was never going to end up with Ishtar cuz she clearly had no romantic feelings for him...
And when he dies, it's very badly played out.
I feel like it was almost the equivalent of him saying "Aight. I'm gonna go die now. Byeeee!"

I was quite upset sad
I wouldn't recommend this manga simply because it's a very big let down.

This is one fun fantasy manga! A real funny princess with an attitude, a reincarnated vampire with revenge on his mind and a crazy royal family looking to either marry or kill the royal heroine (sometimes both!). Good art, like others have said, not the best but its consistent and absorbing. I enjoyed the storyline too, it was comic, with enough action and drama to pull it along nicely. All in all, a great manga - I'm surprised its not more popular.

Like many of the other posters, I thoroughly loved this manga... until act 21. I was happily reading along the first 95% of it thinking, wow I LOVE these characters! And the story-line is unique and refreshing! The main character is crass, wily and adorable.. and Duzie has great character growth. I had high hopes for how the romance portion of this would pan out, as well. How can anyone say anything bad about this, I thought to myself, I will most certainly give it a 10.

WRONG! I am knocking this down to an 8 for how absolutely terrible the ending was. Not only was it completely disappointing, people are NOT kidding when they say it seems totally slapped together at the last minute. In a matter of like 5 panels I was like... what?? wait... WHATconfused Not even like, oh boohoo what a tragic ending I am so heart broken. More of a feeling like wow, didn't even try did ya?No build up, no thorough emotions. Not to mention even if it was properly built up and played out, it was extraordinarily disappointing. The romance panned in a very unsatisfying, terribly cliche, boring way.

So what I am getting at is that the first 20 acts of the manga were a 10 for me. And act 21 was like -5. For me, the value of the ending is much more heavily weighted than the rest. Read the first 20 acts and fantasize about the last one. You will probably enjoy it more that way.

it was a pretty good manga. the characters were so lovable. I JUST LOVE DUZIE!!! i also love yuugin. overall it was good but it still had some faults. it could have been shorter, the romance kind of sucked (cus there wasn't much in it), but the thing that bothered me the most was that the mangaka could of made ishtar fight. she had a strong personality and i just loved her throughout the entire thing but i would of loved her more if she knew how to fight. but once again the overall manga was good

Nice try as for shojo genge to do some decent story & characters. But is it shojo after all, with every wall, hiding readers from realistic behaviour and development of introduced characters. By the way, characters introduction was made quite nicely. But after it, they begin to act more and more weird: vampire "lost theeth", princes acts as jester half the time, lots of pretty boys, words over swords, "bulldogs games under mats" (more like "bullcats" smile ), lamely implemented BL tips, rushed ending. All that actually was required for manga to stay inside shojo genre (I can explain why, but it will take too much space),
but it also made story shallow and predictable (at least, for me).

wahhh!!~ i just finished this cool manga!! i think i love it!! ive said its got everything...magic, fantasy, castle war, sword fighting, guys with long hair, BL <which im not a huge fan of...>, hot sorcerers, killer punchlines and even vampires <again im not a fan>...but seriosly...even though it was named Vampire Game...the vampire plot is not the center of the story which makes it pretty much unique...well when i say unique...well i havent seen Duzell being all emotic and trying to hold back at drinking Ishtar's blood or some other bishies or a random guys...

at first i dont want ot read this because at first i thought that this was one of those mangas in which the princess is a very weak and whiny person and then she gets kidnapped and rescued and the raped by the person who saved her..<well what do you expect?? people put a damn MATURE tag up there>...anyways...Ishtar is the exact opposite...i mean the girl is wielding a sword while wearing a gown and she can compete with Vord in a drinking contest...and she isnt some golden hearted bitch!! which i totally love about her! she isnt mary sue!! i love the imperfections...

which brings me to the guys...i dont really like Darres that much...i think that for the heroines mai love interest hes a tad bit boring...but that makes him Ishtar's type so i guess thats why it worked out...hmmm...but i would prefer Duzell over him anyday! <even though he is kindda gay? i think>...but i really love him hes just so cute especially when he said:

"holding Ishtar's hand in the moonlight, is one of those moments tha you wish could last forever and for a vampire, forever is a very long time...'"

yeah...i love the cheesy and witty line that gets thrown in at times...

sighs...i dont really want this to end because i really want to see more of their kingdoms but alas! it has to end...i am not to satisfied with the ending...its sad....and i dont see much after the ending and i think that it was pretty much rushed...i dont even see Ishtar weeping and i mean the characters death didnt even made me thats why i cant give it a 10 even though i liiiiiiike very, very much...

i could go on and on about this and that and the things that i still want to see but...i think i should stop now...

Maybe I overrated this but I find this manga very interesting. In this manga you'll find many type of characters from Beautiful Bad Mouth Princess, Cute and Cuddly Vampire to beautiful/handsome and sophisticated man (mean lots of them). The story has a good plot and also a good art. Something worth reading.

I usually avoid shoujo but this seemed to have potential to be a good manga, so i stuck with it.

There are many characters, but you eventually get to remember their names, most of them have distinct faces and the confusion is not as bad as in other shoujo mangas.

The romance was ridiculous in this. Everyone loves someone that loves someone else. But they're mostly friendly about it, even the bad guys. You'd expect a man to fight for the woman he loves, but these guys just lay down and take it when she loves their best friend. This is realistic in individual cases but here they're all like that.

Women are weak. Don't mistake me for some crazy feminist, i'm actually a man, but you can't help observe the contrast. Well, maybe it suits the medieval scene. We do get a woman warrior, however we don't even see her fight. So women in this are meat to advance the plot, they sacrifice themselves or they get randomly kidnapped or killed.
You'd think the main character, Ishtar, would be better, but no. She's a spoiled brat which would be dead in two seconds if not for everyone loving and protecting her, for whatever reason. She's useless till the very end.

Talking about Duzell would spoil things, but let me just say he was really disappointing as the big bad guy. Or even as a vampire.

Almost everyone was a better character than Ishtar and Duzell.

The ending displeased many, and they were right. It was too fast and short for a such a lengthy manga, but it wasn't the worst i've seen. The ride there was enjoyable, and it would have been still for another couple of volumes to tie loose end the proper way.

All in all i do recommend it, it's a fun manga.

I pretty much read the whole series because of my love for Duzell the vampire king.

Everything's good and all, but I gave up reading around volume 13 because, frankly, everything is just way too confusing. Too many characters, too many strange names, civil war, and too many subplots for my mind to keep track of.... Plus, it's now obvious that the couple I ship will not be canon. I really really had high hopes for..
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
DuzellxIshtar!!!!!! >.<

What a let down.

SO, i pretty much googled the ending to spare myself the pain of reading another 167 pages until the end.

anyways, this manga was pretty good and i honestly adore the characters. I think this manga needs to be tried by everyone. It has nice art and a solid setting. The rest just depends on the individual perceptions of each chapter. The ending was the main disappointment.

Before you look at this and go "eew, ANOTHER vamp shoujoconfused", just know that this is not what it looks like. I was hesitant to pick this one up at first, but decided that I would try it because of it's goo reviews. It is (only on volume 7) good biggrin Ishtar is a badass, and Duzell is so cute! The plot develops nicely, and it has a great fantasy setting. I barely even reckognize this as a vamp novel, due to the fact that the vampire can barely classify as one. The jokes are funny, and the love map is off the charts! Gender does not mean crap in this manga. I'd definitely reccomend it for someone whose into a good comedic adventure story biggrinD
