Thousands of years ago, Vampire King Akabara "Red Rose" Strauss lost both his kingdom and his queen. Since humans were unable to kill the queen, they sealed her away, erecting thousands of fake seals so that the king would never find her true location. Despite being pursued by relentless dhampires, Akabara continues to search for his queen to this day...

Akabara's quest takes a sinister turn when an entity called the Black Swan appears. The Black Swan inhabits the body of a young human girl every 50 years, giving her the power to destroy the Vampire King and his queen. With each incarnation the Black Swan grows stronger--will the 49th Black Swan mean the end of Akabara?

The Record of a Fallen Vampire   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

Rating: Excellent

What I loved most about this were the twists; you HAVE to appreciate a perfectly done twist, and this series just keeps lobbing them at you out of the blue.
Most authors give you obvious hints about things leading up the revelation, and I hate that. But this didn't, and every sudden turn just had me staring slack-jawed in awe.

SHIRODAIRA Kyou is truly a master of deep plots and those perfect twists, resulting in series you just can't put down.

Without giving anything away, I will say that if someone gave me a full synopsis (the description of the series given here is only the very initial premise) just off-handedly, I'd toss it in the crack manga pile and never look at it again. But somehow this manga did not feel ridiculous at any point, which is an amazing accomplishment. I will say I felt a little betrayed that it ended up not being about what I initially thought, but I got over it quickly.

This does seriously tug at your heartstrings, as stated in other comments.

But the reason this is not a perfect ten is the art. The art is what I would describe as passable; it doesn't add or subtract from the story. The character designs are original enough and are well-done, but the artist has trouble with anatomy, especially hands.
Again, this doesn't detract from the amazing story, but a perfect ten has everything.

I love sad stories but... this one was just a little bit too much. I read it some time ago and the first thing that comes to my mind when I think about it is an overwhelming feeling. It made me tired but I won't deny that it is beautiful just too sad. For me it lacked any optimism and I think no one could take all of that like the main hero and still manage to keep his sanity... it's just too much.

Tough to follow. A lot of the story deals with how long lived vampires would have to deal with long term politics and effects of living alongside humans without using their uber-powers to simply dominate humanity.

That said, if you CAN follow it, this story is beautifully written.

I actually cried at the end of this manga.. and usually I'm the type who doesn't cry for ANYTHING. the main character of this manga is too perfect and amazing- I couldn't help crying for him
it almost seems like most of this manga is mystery-uncovering the past, and discovering more amazing things akabara had done.
I honestly did not care much for this manga until the later chapters, but the ending is seriously beautifully done- enough to make me cry even with the excessive perfectness of the main character that usually makes me scoff at the unrealisticness of the manga.

Lingering Regrets

I initially gave this series a higher rating and now came back to change it. Sadly, the main character, Akabara, fails to be real by the end of story. You look at him and feel numb, dumbfounded even, because someone like that doesn't exist. Every single part of this story is a tragedy that makes Akabara out to be a martyr; at some point you'll wonder whether he chopped off his own leg so a cripple could walk again in 3rd grade. If you think of the story like that then nothing will surprise you.

It's still an interesting read and worth trying if nothing else has piqued your interest.

So many twists, and every twist is tragedy, but not a cheap tragedy.
And it's hard to find a hero as perfect as Akabara.
At first, it's not too interesting, but after volume 3 or 4, I can't leave it...
The artwork developing nicely, get better until last chapter.
And it's a nice last chapter, nice closing.
Then, I salute the author for making a chara like Akabara...

ck why did Strauss had to be with Stella? I prefer Adelheid though

So ive enjoyed the read. A storyline with many twists that keep me turning and anticipating. I like almost all the perspective of the story, from the art, the story, the characters, the twists and turns, the style, etc.

But 1 thing i must say is it was too complex piled into one. I actually slimmed through most of the useless parts. Would perfer the story to be more well organised, where the art aint packed and jumbled so much.

All in all a 8 for me.

Really glad i found a manga such as Vampire Juuji Kai. It was complex, deep, had many twists and turns, a story that does not bore and awesome charcters. I was pretty much satisfied with the end and it defintely lives up to being a tragedy.

However, once the the whole truths comes out and all the conspircies are debunked, it looses its luster just a little but other than that, this deserves to be read.
