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 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.

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...

I really enjoyed reading this manga alot. It really gives you one of the cutest couples to ever love. The characters are all great and all show the meaning of deep bonds. The connection with the family is strong, and the connection with the main couple is fantastic. I love Karins character so much (probably because she is the cutest thing ever LOL). The Story is great, with its twists and turns, and everything else. A lot of emotion can really be felt throughout this manga. Whether it be absolute happiness, or complete despair, it is expressed in a way that really makes you feel "it". The ending was great beacause... (i wont expose anything you have to read it).
The art is in one of my favorite styles for a romance manga. They way the mangaka drew the faces (whenever love was expressed), especially the blushing faces, were amazing. Their faces really showed their emotions and made their connection seem all the more important, and real.

All in all, this is a fantastic manga, with true love, deep bonds, lots of emotion, great characters, cutest couple, great drawn faces, and so much more. Read this manga and enjoy it till the end!!

Deserves every last bit of that score. Deepset bonds between fantastic characters brings out the most of the finale. An ironically memorable ending, a real heart-render it was.

Great story!!

This is a story that will teach you great deep family bonds with lots of love, also how to be a good and caring boyfriend, how to think first of the feelings of your girl <3 and how to give her lots of love, kisses and support wink

Liked a lot the story, I knew it had a solid plot when I realized that all the characters that where inside the story where important (and not the "show and throw away type" ¬¬ )

Also made me laught a lot with a young innocent couple that dont know anything about hows a "grown up" couple should behave and what to do n///n

Liked a lot the ART specially karin tiny fangs and her hair cut and cuteness ^^

Highly recommended wink

Bittersweet ending if you ask me but I guess it was the most appropriate and the most fitting. I would have wished the see more of the afterstory but the ending was awesome nonetheless. Beautiful plot, great ending and great artwork with an amount of romance that is just right make this manga a worthwhile read.
