Has anyone else read this? I read just one of the comics when I was very little. Being young and it also not being the beginning of the series, it made little to no sense to me, but I still fell in love. Because of this, going back and reading the whole volume was extremely fun. Has anyone else read it? I never watched the series, but I'm thinking of checking it out.

Hacía tiempo que no leía un manga, así que no pude resistirme a empezar este. Tiene un muy buen comienzo, y a pesar de ser un poco antiguo, las ilustraciones son preciosas *-* ha sido un gusto leerlo, pronto me pondré con el segundo. Os lo recomiendo muchísimo

Well, I bought it from my friend because... It's Narumi Kakinochi's. I once read Julin (Lin3 in Indonesian version) and I fell in love with her drawing style. I once read the reviews of this story from a local anime-manga magz. And the review has warned us that the weakness of this manga is "the past scenes that will randomly appears and sway our concentration in which focusing to the current scene".

But I didn't know if that would be this severe. I couldn't catch the universe. When she said that

i had been dying to see the anime, so when i saw the book at half price books (for extremely cheap), it immediately gravitated into my hands and then to the checkstand. it's really a 3 1/2 stars for me. it's wonderfully dark, and gorgeous to look at. but miyu's character is flat. there is some character development, as in back story, but growth beyond that is nill. am i glad i got this? of course! will i now be seeing the anime? probably not. though, i'm sure the fire attacks would be much much ...more

I remember liking the anime back in the day, but this graphic novel is just stupid. There's no actual story here, it's just a bunch of short stories that have nothing to do with anything where Miyu either kills cute girls or sends demons back to hell. Snooze.

The stories aren't riveting, but the artwork certainly is. What I love about this manga and the anime as well is the deep sense of melancholy it evokes. I just love romanticised sadness!

Found several volumes of this series in a rundown second hand book store in Sydney. It was like KISMET!
Jun 18, 2009 Jessica rated it it was amazing
loved the books hard to find. a friend had them in school read the first book and seen all the anime dvds to this. still in love with this and anything vampire. wish this would come back later.

loves how a vampire loves a rabbit, a pink rabbit at that.

This book reminds me of a the old Batman TV series (except I liked the Batman series), but a Barbie version--not a good one at that. Repeatedly, action will begin and then "Pow," "Wham", things magically change!

Die Zeichnungen sind wundervoll! :)
Aber die Story.. man bekommt nichts mit. Aber es klingt vielversprechend! Vielleicht werden die naechsten Baende ja aufschlussreicher :)
