This review originally appeared on my blog, Books Without Any Pictures:

Paranormal shojo manga has quickly become one of my guilty pleasures. I blame the series Model by Lee So-Young. I picked up the first volume at an anime convention last year, and I’ve been hooked. So hooked that I binge-read the last four books in a single afternoon.

In case you don’t know anything about the series, the premise is pretty simple. A vampire named Michael invites a young ar

I was happy to get more explanation, but then we were told it was all a dream?! Plus, what was that last chapter? I am so confused with this series. I think I'm going to have to reread the entire thing when it's done to see if it makes more sense.
This volume was so confusing and the characters feel so... contrived. In a way I’m glad that these are out of print so I could read them online. I’m struggling to see why this series tops the lists of “must read vampire manga.” Maybe part of the problem is I read Blood Bank first, which was phenomenal... I love whoever did the background art/architecture drawings but the figures are... it’s so difficult to tell them apart and at one point when Ken was telling his backstory it wasn’t entirely cle ...more

I wasn’t a fan of this series. I was just bored most of the time. I do have to say I liked the ending. But for the most part I never got into the story line. There were too many sudden character switches in the story line with, there was zero transitions. It was hard to follow at times. The art didn’t help much. It wasn’t horrible, but the male characters all looked the same and with some of the shadings it was hard to tell if it was the main male character or a different male character. I’m a f ...more
"Your tears...never show them to Michael."

In this fourth volume of the seven part series, we learn a lot more about Eva and Ken's past and how they came to live with Michael. Eva's reason for wanting Jae to live is a lot more understandable now. Also Ken comes to terms with his feelings for Jae. Was he playing her all along, or does he really love her? That's answered here.

I was a little annoyed with the back and forth regarding everyone's relation to each other. Is everyone blood-related or no

This is my favorite cover thus far. The volume opens with a quick frame chapter which I thought was pretty, though maybe it didn't add much to the story. I really enjoyed baby!Ken's backstory with Michael, which comprised about half the volume. Ken's sexual aggressiveness toward Jae is sexy, but I think this is the moment where I lost a lot of respect and sympathy for him. At least he finally backs off, for now. Also at least he isn't manipulating Jae for his own purposes like Michael is. Overal ...more

4th installment of this 7 volume gothic romance. A real flashback volume. The majority is taken up with Eva and Ken's backstory and how Ken came to resent Michael. Ken kisses Jae and the love-triangle deepens. There's a very odd additional story which seems to have Jae and Ken as different characters - Ken is the dead brother of Jae's grandmother and gran sends Jae to stop him haunting their house... odd.

Much more coherant than the last book, we finally get a few things answered. Detailed faces
I just found this volume didn't fit with the previous ones. I guess it was supposed to make some big revelation of character's pasts but I found by the end I was just like "what was that about?" I found it was also hard to tell from the art and the dialogue what was actually happening and what was a dream. Also continued difficulty identifying which character was which and who was speaking.

In this latest installment of Jae and Michael’s story we finally learn some of Eva, Ken and Michael’s story and why Jae has become so important in Michael’s house. Of course, there are still a lot of unanswered questions and half answered questions. As always, this book is satisfying enough to be enjoyable, but it leaves you wanting to pick up the next volume.

Yay! Answers about Ken's past, and a bit about Eva's and Michael's. Jae confronts Michael and tells him to grow up a little and not figure that he knows what people feel and think. He reaches out to her a little more, so there's some romantic development there...they make a pretty good couple. They just have to figure themselves out, but that's what the other books in the series are for!

I liked the extra chapter. Though it was a bit confusing because of the names. But still cute.
