Black Bird, Vol. 4
R to L (Japanese Style). He loves her blood, but does her love her?!
There is a world of myth and magic that intersects ours, and only a special few can see it. Misao Harada is one such person, and she wants nothing to do with magical realms. She just wants to have a normal high school life and maybe get a boyfriend. All that chan ...more
I've wanted to read this manga for quite some time, and once I started reading it like a few weeks ago. I couldn't stop. Despite what anyone says, I love this manga. I love the artwork. I love the main character's romance. I love the plot line. And I love all of the characters that make up this manga. There's a lot of people who've said that Hime-sama, the main charact ...more
After finishing four books in the Black Bird series, I’ve come to understand something about Kanoko Sakurakouji: She’s a damn sadist. She loves those horrible cliffhangers that make a reader want to face plant a desk. And yet I can’t get enough!
I really can’t.
I just sjdsfhdsfdldhfg *sob* I’m so addicted it’s painful.
I need to learn her secrets.

*breathes deeply* I will try to finish this review without spontaneously combusting.
Some things you should know about the fourth volume ...more
Introducing Ren was my favourite part, she's gorgeous and - THANK GOD - mature. I'm too old for this kind of manga, it seems. But it has a lot of blood and killing and some sex-like-moments that confuses me. Let's see what happens.
I’m really enjoying how much closer Kyo and Misao are getting. She’s starting to care for him deeply and he’s starting to let his feelings show instead talking about sex all the time. Speaking of sex, I’m really not sure what’s going on there. It seems like they keep running into this brick wall. Aside from Misao not being ready, there are all these prophecies that say they can have sex or they can’t. It’s weird. If this ends like Chobit ...more
Misao really impressed me in this book because so many heroines are 'save me, save me'! Misao doesn't want to always be saved though. she wants to be an equal partner who Kyo. That made me really respect her. I am also pretty impr ...more
Full disclosure: I lived in Japan for a year as a teenager and the only manga I've ever read is Cardcaptor Sakura. In Japanese.
This is not a good second opinion.
What do you recommend as a good manga? I've watched some anime in the past and enjoyed it, and understand Japanese culture well.
The thing is, Tadanobu and Kyou are actually very close friends, which is very unusual in youkai society, and to top things off, Tadanobu has a serious human girlfriend named Renko and wants to marry her.
Knowing that a battle for Misao is inevitable, the two for ...more
Misao may seems weak to some people, but she doesn't have the skill or the supernatural power to fight the demons. However, she is willing to risk herself to stand up for what she believes is right. That does take a particular ...more
I read this for a couple of readathons:
Reading Rivalry: A book featuring flight because there are bird creatures in this series!
Cardcaptor-a-thon - The Silent - Read a Graphic Novel because the Silent card capture takes place in an art museum.
so kyo's friend has to give up on his human love and fight for misao...why?? when in the end it seems that marrying his girlfriend is possible. i dont get it. other than that, the plot of this series is so intruiging, I'm sailing through it.
I don't want to hear! I don't want to hear!
How ever, because she wants it that way, I'm definitely going to accept it.
So, you'll accept it? No matter what kind of man he is? Even if the one she claims to love... Is not human? Is it still fine?"
I like the pace and how the story is progressing, and I can't wait for the next volume.
