Description
From Tokyopop:
Volume 1:
Karin is a cute little girl who also happens to be a vampire...with a twist. Once a month, she experiences intense bleeding from her nose--we're talking gushers! In other words, she's a vamp with blood to spare, so rather than stealing blood from humans she actually gives her blood to them. If done right, this can be an extremely positive experience that benefits the "victim" as much as the vampire. The problem is that Karin never seems to do things right!

This is a good manga really entertaining! I just feel bad for the
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Choice of the parents making Karin forget that she had vampire parents
I think it could create a better ending. If that didn't happen. Aside from that detail I think this is is a great manga with a great story (I believe the mangaka didn't make a better ending because of the deadlines). Showing us a different way of making a story with vampires.

This manga is a 10 up to the last chapter, just skip it and make up ur own ending. The characters are nice, the art is good, and the stories kept me entertained. It gave me a side of vampires i hadnt thought about before and was well worth the read.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Especially the idea of a sibling being able to go in sunlight while the rest of the family cant. The chapters where her sister turns into an adult had me crying, i had never thought about it up to that point and it tore me up. The ending however was completely contrived. I guess i was supposed to feel sorry for the family having to make there daughter forget about them, but because no reason was given i just felt angry. If the ending hadnt been so rushed and the reasoning explained it may have been a better ending but alas we'll never know. I just know that in my version ( the one i made up in my head) after the 2year jump, He propese to her, they live happily ever after with a photo of the whole family...the end :)

It's a brilliant manga, with the concept of family values and romace and also has intersting twists to the story, the srtwork was good and the story line was ok, but i found the ending ruined the manga for me, i HATED it O.o , but everyone has their own opinions, so others may love it

Really liked this series but not really a fan of the ending, which ruined it a bit for me.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
I agree with everyone who said that erasing the memories of her family was pointless. There was absolutely no reason she couldn't just live in the world of the light, while still being able to visit her family at night.


That aside I did think this series had great characters, a well-developed romance and there was always something interesting happening to keep you interested. Just be warned the ending may not exactly be the happy ending you're expecting,

This manga was nice, Karin was clumsy, but it was actually cute. And the guy was sooo nice. Karin´s family was funny too. I would give it a 10, if it wasn´t for the end.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Why, just why? She loved her family so much and they did this to her? They just erased her life!!! Hate it. Why couldn´t she be happy whith them? That was so pointless. I cried soooo much. Poor Karin. That was just so sad. Uwaaaa

not bad ending

nice but sad ending, alot of romance, but defenetly a good manga for anyone to read.Nothing really bad besides the too much crying in it but this make the manga more cute "hehehe". Othere than that, i have to not agree in what u said "Aenonar", yes many people like happy ending i guess. But not everything has a happy ending in real life ( nor should it always be in a manga, it will just make it a boring or uninteresting end or unrealistic enough),sometime a sacrifice is needed in ordor to obtain happiness. Though the ending really mad feel sad ( i guess u could say, dying is something but being forgeten is even more cruel). well that how i see thing heheheheh, i would defenitly recomend this manga to anyboody but if u dont like sad ending which usually always happen in a romance, dont watch it. i will give it a 9.5 because they could have given it a little more story in this manga.

Lovely start, but annoying ending...

I absolutely loved the first ~half, but then I stopped reading after volume 11 thinking the series had been abandoned. Now when i finally noticed that it really had been finished, I must say that I'm very disappointed in the ending.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
There should have been some other way to end it rather than this very annoying abduction thing + memory swipe.. come on... Ultra cute series and they end it by destroying everything... It just destroyed that lovely feel from the beginning.

To much crying, sobbing...

This one is definitely, well, worth-read for some people, but not for me. I can't stand the main character, I don't know if I'm wrong, but through out all 14 vols, crying was all she did. Seriously, I can't stand it, if there were a crying contest, then she'd definitely be the best (lol).
On the other hand, I enjoyed the overall story, the character's quite unique, the storyline were great and the art were ok (It's just not my taste, i suppose). The story beautifully ended in an unexpected and exceptional way.
About the rating, I'll rate it 10/10 if it weren't for the cry-baby. Sheesh, I could really enjoy this manga if it weren't for her.

yay, tokyopop released the final volume - I read it in one sitting.

I enjoyed this series very much

if you enjoy creative, consistent, family-oriented, weird, and corny/embarrassing love comedy (no moronic pervert trash) comics this ought to be a nice read.

the vampire elements might be a turn-off to some readers, however, I got used to the weirdness after a few volumes

and i urge readers to support this series by buying it. great content here...
