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!

Descriptions can be deceiving. This is one of the greatest shounen romance mangas out there. Also, its not as cute and carefree as the description. it has it's serious moments, and a lot of romance and comedy. one of my favorite reads

Finished serie few mins earlier and I must say, this propably beat all other manga series which I have finished reading. Story is intact from start to end, silly jokes and ridiculous situations kept smile on from start to end and there was not too much nor too little romance. I definetly suggest this serie to anyone who wants to read good romance serie with added comedy.
Having read dozens of mangas, this is first time ever I shed tears after finishing a serie. Ending was same time happy and wistful.

The ending made me cry...I didn't see it coming at all. It fit though, didn't it? Sort of, anyway. Sigh...

Wonderful manga, great plot and artwork, funny, fabulous characters...I did find it a little annoying that the mangaka basically drew the same person for three different characters (Grandma, Sophia, and Karin), but I was able to get past that. This is really a fantastic read =)

The artwork is good throughout the series, the humor stays focused, and the story goes on without any real gap. Good beginning, good follow through until the end.
The ending wasn't that bad, but I would have liked a bit more of the after story. I was also surprised about what the family did, but I suppose I can kind of understand it. >_< Overall, very great read, and I will most certainly be buying this series as well.
On a full reading, and not one delayed by many months inbetween each release, the story doesn't seem as long as it was.

I wish it hadn't ended with taking her memory, they could of went about it another way. She could of kept her memory and her family. Except the memory of her being kidnapped, we rather leave that out.

I read all of the volumes. I give 10/10 just because the ending is glorious. The ending was sad and yet it was enlightning. It made me cry, as I have just finished it 5 minutes ago, there are still tears streaming down my cheek. READ IT!@#!!

The story on whole was quite deserving of an 8, but the ending just made it ten. First manga to make me cry since I was 12...Man, it was so very, very emotional, the author did an awe-inspiring job with the end. Just amazing.
Wonderful story,

i gave it a ten because it actually made me cry in the end...
the whole story didn't deserve a ten but the end does...
it's hard for me to come across a manga or even story that can make me cry since i read too many already. I am not going to spoil the ending because i don't know how to use a spoiler tag. However, i want to conclude that the ending is just ..beautiful
Many ppl don't like the ending or it's unsetting, but i think it is the best for the situation. Yes, it really breaks my heart but i think it is the best conclusion...
Sigh...Karin is very fortunate to have family that loves her this much. I really like her sister constantly protecting her from even though she's younger...
I just wish Kenta can be cutier...well, it's a flaw...i guess....
sigh...even writing down my heart still aches for this beautiful's too much for me...I love it and aches for it at the same time...sigh

talk about a sad ending! The end was so unexpected I had to re-read and I did cry I wont give anything away but it was a great story and worth the couple of years it took for me to get each volume biggrin.

Well just got my copy of volume 11 in the mail, stinks that I have to wait until December for the next one. Liked the series enough that since it isn't being scanlated very fast I decided to buy the volumes out in English which like I said 11 is out now. Definately a bit more drama like now but overall a series I enjoy this will probably be the 3rd complete series i'll buy in book form actually.
