Takamichi is a Dark Hunter, a hunter of demons. Along with her "dogs", she fights to protect mankind. Rather than focusing on a particular plot, the author prefers to relate stories about these characters that define their unusual relationship, and personalities. Takamichi's daily life with her jiu jiu, half-wolf, half-human hybrids, Snow and Night, is full of never-ending worry for her, and absolute amusement for us.This pair is utterly loyal to her, however Takamichi finds returning their feel ...more
I started reading this on a whim while perusing an issue Hana to Yume magazine, and luckily for me, discovered the first volume had just come out.

As member of the Hachiouji family, 16 year old Takamichi is Hunter, and it's her job to destroy the Monsters who plague humanity. For three years, she's been the owner of Setsu and Yuugure, half human half wolf brothers born of a human and a Monster. Having lost her twin brother (he died saving her from a Monster) she's prickly and does every thing sh

Reason for Reading: I've finished a couple of manga series lately and am looking for a new one to start.

I liked the idea of this series being about a female "Hunter" who pursues and slays demons and the pair of wolf cub shapeshifters she's given as her familiars to protect her. Unfortunately this is not how it read for me. Takamichi is a spoiled, rude, obnoxious girl who gets what she wants except for having the wolf pups dumped off on her. So she treats them cruelly, with disdain and no show of
This book is cute and touching, if not very original. Takamichi is a proper bitch with a very sharp sword and I love her for it, but beyond the characteristics of the "sullen girl" stereotype there isn't much to her. Snow and Night, her Jiu Jiu werewolf puppies, are completely adorkable but could have easily come out of any boy-harem type book. The antics that follow the clashes between Takamichi's personality and those of her 100%-puppies-in-human-form are funny, especially if you've ever owned ...more
I loved the first volume of this, but I do have to say that the #1 issue with this manga is that it really is a stereotypical series. All of the most common story lines, characters, and ideas of a supernatural manga series are seen here. Loner chick with a tortured past? Check. Love triangle with two hot guys? Check. Supernatural creatures that pop out to further the story along? Check. There really isn't much here that you haven't seen in a bajillion other series in the genre.

Yet somehow I rea

This book was fantastic. I wasn’t even aware that Shojo Beat was releasing a new series, which is very unlike me, but I saw it on the shelf at the bookstore and immediately decided to get it. It looked pretty, and I only skimmed the back, as my faith in Shojo Beat is very big. I was excited to start it, and I’m glad that it was even better than I’d thought it would be.

It’s about a girl, Takamichi, the daughter and heir to a clan of hunters. Her twin brother died
So I’m putting out a review on the first book but I’ve read the entire series so I will go through it all. Don’t worry, I won’t spoil it for you. I have to say that I loved the artwork and Touya-sensei took a story that seemed like your run of the mill harem manga and went a different way with it.

Takamichi is the main character and a female born in a Hunter’s family where the heir, her brother, died at a young age leaving her to succeed the family. As a gift and a way to take her mind off things
This one was surprisingly entertaining.

I got it from the library simply because I hadn't seen it before and I'm always up for trying something new.

So far, this is like someone took Natsume's Book of Friends and spliced it with the demon hunting of Blue Exorcist.

It's cute. It follows the story of a "hunter" named Takamichi and her pets Jiu Jiu, Snow and Night.

So far, it's a little light on plot, but sometimes, fun characters and an interesting concept is all a manga needs.

Grabbed this from the library purely on a whim with no idea what it was about and was pleasantly surprised to discover just my kind of series! Dark but humorous - can't wait to read the rest of it.

It was really good !!! The concept and characters are amazing !
I love this manga and Snow and Night are so adorable!!!

Such a sweet story of devotion. Loved the characters, specifically night. Men in glasses? Yes please.
3 1/2 stars. I'm reserving judgement a bit on this one. Takamichi is pretty obnoxious. BUT. I can understand why. She has lost someone very dear to her and she is determined never to let anyone else get close. Doesn't make her any more likeable, but at least the reader can relate. The series also jumps around in time without any warning, which took a bit of adjusting, but I can see promise here. I think it will be very popular with my teens.

My actual rating is something like a 2.5. This book took way too long, in my opinion, to get anywhere. The first few chapters were really slow, and nothing important seems to happen. It takes until the last two chapters for the series to show some potential.
When it does start to get somewhere, though, it does become a compelling read. As it does show potential, I will continue to read it.
I borrowed this manga from a friend and I am glad I did. It was cute at times and had its chuckles but there didn't really seem to be much of a plot (although this might change in later volumes) and I wasn't overly invested of excited about what was going to happen next.
A fun start to an interesting manga concept involving a supernatural hunter and her familiars (or Jiu Jiu as they're called). It was fun to see how eager the two "pups" are to prove their worth to Takamichi. I can't wait to see how they develop from here on out.
This is a case of the premise and main character being massively my kind of thing so I'm going to give the author a few volumes to actually get good at writing it. Potential! Potential all over this mess! 3 stars

Night and snow are absolutely the cutest, and Takamichi is so lucky to have them at her side. I admit though they are quite the handful, but she love them and they lover deeply.
I like the idea but I really don't find the drawing style that flattering, especially as the author said she was supposed to have written a series about "two gorgeous boys".
Pretty good read. I enjoyed it, and think that it should be more well-know than it is now.
I love this book. The plot is unusual but still cute. It's a must read in my opinion.
Hoo boy, this is sort of a hot mess. Will have to see if further volumes improve.

An interesting manga that I wait impatiently to see more.

Love it, it's so cute. Puppy overload~~ <3
I do love drawings of cute little wolf puppies.
