From Storm in Heaven:

Soko starts feeling sick soon after moving to a new city, apparently for no reason. As beautiful as she is, a lot of guys start to bother her, especially Kashi. While trying to rape her, Kashi disappears and after a few days another guy shows up pretending to be Kashi. And everyone but Soko believes him!

He tells her he is Akira the Byakko, from the family of the West. Because she is the reincarnation of Souryo, the queen of the Oni from the family of the East, a monster that eats humans to stay alive, he must destroy her and erase her genes from Earth. He is the only one who can kill her and the one that must do so. Soko is desperate. Is she really a monster? Why does she have human memories? Why does she have to die? Will she be able to change her destiny and stay alive?

Story 9/10
The story itself is really good, very interesting and innovative. I love the ancient legends about Japan and the fact they mixed it with today's culture. The final saying
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
about the whole thing being against destruction of environment
had a good sense too but I wish it was described better. I wish Soko shown more struggle about the oni from the beggining, not just focus on the human side. Like this, her devotion at the end seems fake.

Art 8/10
For a manga that old the drawings are really good. It remainds me of Mars, especially Soko's hair. Surprisingly, it was pretty easy to read. I just couldn't stand her closed eyes sometimes.

Protagonists 4/10
The biggest problem I have with this manga is Soko.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
At the beginning I was surprised - female protagonist with such a strong will not to obey man and don't really dwell about eating humans in manga from the 90s? I was impressed. And then everything changed and I really started to hate her. Come on, she was going back and forth from Akira to Takao, doing exactly the things she said she won't do. An frankly, Akira at the end was as duplicitous as his uncle. If he acted like this at the beginning, he would've just killed Soko in 2 or 3 chapter and that's it. I know the things that happened had to change him but the fact that mangaka shows Soko going over the same thing "I want to be human, I want to be with Akira" and "I can't kill ...." but not giving a single thought about the fact that her lovely Akira, who didn't want to kill anyone while obtaining the scroll, started to cut of heads like crazy and suffocates her whenever she didn't agree with him pissed me of as hell. In the end, it was all about two guys fighting and a girl being shushed, because none of them wants to fight her. And when at the end she finally stopped whining, Hiko saved the day anyway.

Akira as a main male character was ok, especially on the begining.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I wish the author had more thought about his challenges with killing and using people, at the end, he seemes cold and heartless. His love to Soko was more of an obsession, I don't believe she was happy with him after all of this ended. All in all, he was drenching her whatever she spoke her mind against him.

Takao is my favourite character. I won't write about who he turned out to be, but it was a HUGE surprise. His character was written the best. I felt very sorry for him.
Hiko, Kai were ok. Akira's sister was blank to me. It seemed as their characters would be shown good but it turned out Mayumi was very shallow. Sometimes if felt as if they had forgotten that she exist, just to bring her up in the least wanted form.
Generally I think this manga has problems with female characters. They are very shallow and one-dimensional. Looks like an addition to males, which i weird taking into account the writer is female.

In the end, I would want to add that I really wish she has shown more of Rago. I would want to see what she thought about all of this.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
They made it seem as if it would be Soko or Rago in one body, while Hiko was very oni from the beginning. I thought it's a struggle and in the end Soko will understand why Rago wants Kimon back.But nothing like this happend. Soko never got to know what Rago was like, what she thought about Takao and oni
I wish the author would make this manga more meaningful, not only abusive love story with light gore. I feel like no one there understood anything, they were just running around like headless chickens, pretending they're doing something good.

"I really love this story but would have liked it better if Soko had stuck with her original plan to *spoiler* sleep with the oni. It just seems more realistic instead of the whole "everyone gets a happy ending." It would also make me respect her more since she's sticking to her words and taking responsibility. It just doesn't seem fair that after she tells everyone else to go to sleep that she gets to escape that fate. Also, Mamiko, the little kid oni, is waiting for her too. I also really liked Takao towards the end. I wonder if he'll end up marrying Hiko since he loves her and that's how they "keep the blood pure," which is a tradition since long ago. I feel sorry for Takao though. After all his hard work, Soko doesn't recover her memories like Hiko and he doesn't get the woman he loved back."

How can man? Did you even read the ending? *Warning*Takao is a shadow already how possibly marry once again thus generate the gene, more than that how can with the own child? would gracefully suggest some additional story about Takao. Like the time Takao spent happily with Rako the original Oni Chief, n the story mainly focus the 2nd reincarnation Shoko-female main character, wish some extra chaps giving a little peek about the 1st reincarnation for example how is character s life how s the relation ship with Takao .....
The whole story is a masterpiece after all because *Warning* we had here a captivating triangle love, a man character who s supposed to be ur thousand years enemy, ready to betray the whole generation just to run with the girl, and there s another man who s like has been sitting there longing for thousand years, cherished, raised up and ready to sacrified anything for the girl. So who will the girl choose at the end? Now that s so-called fantasy genre haaaa,

I liked the story it's unusual and I think the concept is original. The story is entertaining until the end. The manga has the potential to be better than Red River if it had more volumes. Overall a good read manga with a lot of twists.

I'm not a fan of Chie Shinohara, but I must admit that this one is pretty good! Clever and lovely artstyle, and a very gripping, breath-taking yet sexy plot. The main chars are likable.

Shinohara is extremely skillful when it comes to supernatural power and horror theme. (And romance still finds a way XD)

A good manga with a semi-complex storyline, as expected of Shinohara-sensei. The character relationships are fairly typical but serve the story well (the usual angsty Romeo/Juliet relationship). The conflicts within the main character are real, painful, and credible. Since it's only 11 volumes, I don't think the story drags on too much, either. There are a few graphic scenes (cannibalism, not x-rated or truly horrible but rather disturbing), and some provocative (but not TOO steamy) scenes. There's also some action scenes.

The two main characters are Soko and Akira, who start out as enemies, but with two hot main characters you can guess what's going to happen. ^^; Later on two antagonists related to Soko appear, which is when the plot gets moving. The plot is carried by a combination of action, character relationships, and human issues. (You'll see what I mean at the ending.) As for the ending, it's pretty satisfying, although it kinda felt like a cop-out.

It reminds me a little of [url]]Ayashi no Ceres[/url].
