This book is bad.

I'm really not picky with my manga - I'll read just about anything. I just love manga. My obsession began with Fushigi Yugi and is branching out into many different directions, one of which is the more macabre world of vampires and the supernatural. So I thought that I would try Millennium Snow.

I was very disappointed. The art is beautiful, if a bit disproportional at times. However, the book gives you no time to invest in the characters emotionally. From the first time that Chi

I've really liked Ouran High School Host Club, so I decided to try this, one of Bisco Hatori's earlier works. You can most tell that it's earlier from comparing the art. Millenium Snow's is crude and lacks detail compared with Ouran. It's still pretty good, though. The story is stronger. I like the concept of vampires used here, that they're weak without blood (but won't die) and that they normally take care of that need by finding a human partner. The human will let the vampire drink from them ...more

Chiyuki (the name means a thousand snows) is a teenager with a heart condition. She may not live to see the next snow. Toya is a vampire who will live a thousand years but he's hesitant to confer immortality on anyone, including Chiyuki.

Sounded like an interesting manga story. Unfortunately, it didn't work for me. I think it was too young for me. I enjoy some of the teen manga but this was just too silly. I did not feel like the characters were acting as expected. Their actions from panel to pan

What a sweet story! Pure fluff, with some drama thrown in for spice, the epitome of shoujo, complete with a swooning heroine and an injured kitten. Yes, it doesn’t get much more cliché, but sometimes you just need a pure romance story – and if there are vampires and werewolves involved, all the better! The artwork for this manga was quite beautiful. Though I’ve never really been comfortable with the way Hatori Bisco draws humans (heads too small for bodies and eyes too big for heads), I love the ...more

The premise of the manga is appealing--vampires must choose a human to be their source, granting them near-immportality. But the vampire Toya hates the idea of cursing anyone with immortality...until he meets Chiyuki, who has a disease that will kill her soon. Will Toya overcome his angst to keep Chiyuki by his side? Can Chiyuki convince him she wants to be his forever?

In execution, it's more silly and played for laughs than dramatic, in the style of many Japanese manga that are goofy and comedi

So, this series was originally going to be a "One-Shot" (1-volume) manga. That means that this volume does pretty much make sense on its' own. However, it did get continued into a series instead, so the story is actually a few volumes longer.

Chiyuki has heart problems, and is spending her life mostly in hospitals. Then, she meets a vampire and offers to become his mate, since she feels they have much in common. She doesn't think he'll give a second thought. But, he offers he

Chiyuki is a teenager who is dying of a heart condition. Toya is a teenage vampire who refuses to make a bond with a human. Satsuki is a werewolf, who just wants to live a normal life.

In a high school romance somewhat familiar to those who've watched Being Human or read Twilight, the storyline revolves around these three characters and how they learn about each other, forming a typical triangle for teenage stories.

Listed as Hatori's first original manga, it has it's charms. Chiyuki is trying t

Review from my blog, The Haunting of Orchid Forsythia

Story:
The synopsis does NOT do the story justice, it just makes it sound cheezy and well just like a kinda blah story. My suggestion would be to completely bypass the synopsis and just give Millennium Snow a go.

I really liked how Millennium Snow began, were Chiyuki sees Touya fall off the roof the hospital (she actually thought that he had jumped to his doom). I thought it was an interesting way to start because from there you have Touya and

Chiyuki has a congenital heart problem that will most likely kill her before the next snow (her 18th). When she encounters 18 year old Toya, she discovers that he is a vampire unwilling to drink human blood, as he fears developing relationships with people who will die long before his 1,000 years are up. Apparently, vampires develop relationships with the person they get blood from, rather than kill them.... or something. Then, of course, he saves her mid-heart attack and the relationship and al ...more

I just love this series. I just wish there was more than just two books. Sadness.

Anyway, it's a lovely story about a girl (Chiyuki) with heart troubles who meets a boy (Toya) who turns out to be a vampire. But this is no ordinary vampire, he doesn't drink blood! Why? When he drinks that persons blood, they will together live for 1000 years. But will he change his mind as he grows closer to Chiyuki? Will he let her fall into the hands of a werewolf named Satsuki? Will Toya be able to save Chiyuk

A terminally ill girl meets a vampire who could save her life and make her live a thousand years just by drinking her blood. Unfortunately for her, he doesn't want to. If I remember right, this series is very brief, and I can see why. As a vampire romance (or werewolf romance, if you count the guy who shows up later in this volume), it's not very good. The supernatural stuff isn't very prominent, and the romance didn't prompt any fangirl feelings on my part.

Its a little hard to say whether or not I like this series as I've yet to get into it too deeply. So far I don't see it being Hatori's best work. Ouran High School Host Club felt a lot more fully realized. The biggest drawback is that all the characters are changing TOO quickly. I think a little more time could have been taken to establish relationships and personalities. That being said, the concept is interesting. It was cute and funny. You could see a lot of Hatori's writing personality in it ...more

For being Hatori’s first serialized work, Millennium Snow is quite nice. I know some of the plot elements sound like a Twilight rip-off, but the two stories are actually quite different. The outstanding feature of Millennium Snow is the characters: Toya’s almost-tsundere-ness is charming, and the Chiyuki-Yamimaru pair’s impudently picking on him is hilarious. Personally, I’m a big fan of Satsuki, probably because he reminds me a lot of Tamaki from Hostbu. I think this manga is significant in tha ...more

Isn't this just wonderful? Another vampire vs. werewolf cliche! Brilliant! Did I mention how much I hate vampire stories? No? Well let me explain then:

Long long ago, I could enjoy a vampire story. But then, everything changed when twilight came out. Only my age could stop me from reading this series, but in reality, that didn't stop me at all. Years passed and I'm still sick of vampire stories, all the cliches stacked and stacked. And although some may be good, they have a lot to learn about adv

I found the first volume of Millennium Snow at a thrift store last spring, and read it now because I flipped through and saw some school stuff, meaning that it fits a group challenge I'm reading for. I wish that I had a lot to say about this, but I really don't. It was an okay manga, with an inoffensive schoolgirl and young vampire romance that a werewolf cuts in on, with decent art that you can tell blossoms into the more impressive cuteness of the artist's later series, Ouran Host Club.

Never go into anything with your expectations too high. You'll just end up disappointed.

Millenium Snow is what Twilight would have been if the author had a sense of humor about herself and there was something actually, physically wrong with Bella Swan rather than her just being a clumsy, sour-dispositioned person. There's a love triangle with a vampire and a werewolf who has no chance. And that's basically the plot of the first volume and, I assume, the series.

To be fair, I liked it much better

I first read this AGES ago, but I recently reread it so that I could continue on and finish up the series. I LOVED this volume. You meet 17-year old Chiyuki who has been told she won't live much longer due to a disease. She wants nothing more than to be able to see the next snow, but it resigned to the likelihood that she won't. Then she meets Toya. A vampire. And kind of a jerk. But in spite of his sullen attitude, he finds that he can't just let Chiyuki die. So... he gives her some of his bloo ...more

OMG. I am not the target audience for this. Appears like there will be some sort of love triangle between a vampire, a human girl, and a werewolf. The only redeeming part is the vampire's little bat sidekick. He's cute. And says "were-woof".

Okay! This book is just pure sorrow!

You don't know how much I cry when I was reading this. It was not a book that say "I love you" every chapter, "doki-doki" heart every moment, it was funny, sad, and yes, a roller coaster!

Though the visual is not really my type, but as long as it was a good story, I still could bear.

I don't want to sound mean, but actually I prefer Sad Ending, though. ( look at the condition 2 last chapters, I kind of hope it was a sad ending ).

But HEA always win, right?

I believe it has been quite a long time since I reviewed something vampire concerning on the blog! Correctly saying in my manga corner, I believe the last vampire manga was back in October – Vampire Knight. Check it out if you are interested. But before I actually go to the story itself let me tell you something about its background. The story is only 4 volumes long. You might find it weird but in the middle of it (end of vol. 2) the author stopped writing it, and

Now that VIZ is releasing the last two volumes of this series, I’ve decided to give it a reread (and review). I first read it back around the time it was first released, and remember enjoying it. As I’ve said many times before, Ouran High School Host Club is one of my absolute favorite series, and so of course I’d already read this. And when I heard that VIZ was continuing it, when I hadn’t even known that Hatori had finished it, I got very excited. And

Millennium Snow is an oldie but definite goodie worthy of your time. It's about an girl named Chiyuki whom, despite an serious heart condition, longs to see the first snow before she dies. She unexpectedly meets an sharp tongued vampire named Toya who has an strong distaste towards humans and even possibly blood in general. Halfway though the manga we come across another guy who is similar to Toya.

It is only because of the full moon that she notices the boy in black as he steps off the roof of the hospital. Leaving her room without permission, s

Have you ever imagined a world that has vampires and werewolves? Well in this fantasy book Chiyuki gets to meet both. This book is really good I love it since its manga and it has romance in it.

Chiyuki first met Toya when she was taking a stroll outside the hospital. Toys straight out told her that he was a vampire. After that they bumped into each other again and Chiyuki found out that Toya doesn't have a partner to drink blood from. So she decided that she wanted to be his partner and Toya go

Chiyuki is a 17 year old girl who is suffering from a heart condition and may not live to see adulthood. Her name literally means 1000 snow, a name chosen by her parents in hopes that Chiyuki would live to see the new snow each year for the next 1000 years. Chiyuki has known that she is destined for death ever since she was a child, and so she always ...more
