I'm going to do my best on this review, but there is a lot of commotion going on around me and my attention is taxed. You have been warned.

I have mixed feelings about this manga. I liked the premise and enjoyed the backstory, but the pacing and focus kept the story based on the characters' lives, not the backstory. I liked the art and was impressed with Masayuki Takano's ability to capture emotive gestures, but found the faces a bit stony and unvaried. I liked the characters Kurose Kuroe &

Originally this series was released in 6 seperate volumes, but it's now compacted into this Omnibus edition of the first three volumes. Kuroe is a private investigator/author/vampire killer who is now living with Misaki a child vampire. (This is mentioned on the back synopsis.) This manga seems like it begins in the middle of the story, and just goes on from there. The storyline does not flashback to how Kuroe and Misaki meet up or how their bond is formed. Therefore, I'm not sure if the transla ...more

Blood Alone is a gorgeous piece of literature. One of the things that I immediately noticed was the crisp, beautiful art. There is an elegance to it that is uncommon in manga. That made the story all the more appealing to me.

Now, moving past that, I rather enjoyed the story thus far. The two main characters have a sweet sort of chemistry and their relationshiip, at times, is adorable. The plot is not fast-paced, but it's also not excruciatingly slow. I found the pace to be rather comfortable. T
The best way to describe this book would be cute. But don't let that fool you, it's rated T+ for a reason, some of the material could be disturbing for a young reader.
Overall it's a slower paced read. There's tension and issues but lots of day to day life too. I would have liked to have known how Misaki and Kuroe ended up together, where Misaki's parents are, and how old she and Kuroe are. I know this might be stupid, but that bothered me. They didn't really have romance going (more like hints

This is a very good vampire-themed manga. For a start, there's none of the over-sexualised image that's usually presented with vampires. The whole story has more of a quaint, daily-life kind of feel... which is excellent as it shows the characters' personality very well. Actions do show up where necessary, but they're rather sparse in frequency.

The drawing style is simplistic, which compliments the story well as it didn't take the attention away from the story or the charming characters.

This is a newly-published omnibus version of vols. 1-3 of a vampire-themed manga series. It's rated for older teens, ages 16+, but it's pretty mild & has a good story line. There are some facts that we have yet to learn about the relationship between the young vampire girl & her older male protector though...

I think I've found a supernatural modern vampire romance story that does not suck, and it is Blood Alone. The vampire & human dynamics are pretty fascinating, the whole cast is vibrant and interesting, and the main pairing is pretty darn adorbs (although the double-edged age difference will certainly turn some readers off). Now to bully my library to get the next couple of volumes of this manga!
