Debo decirles que este cuarto tomo se ha convertido en favorito hasta este momento por varias razones, la primera de ella es que conocemos un poco más del pasado de Kyo gracias a un pequeño capitulo extra donde la autora nos muestra a un pequeño Kyo entrenando duro para poder ser la

cabeza de su familia. Espero en el futuro la autora nos cuente más del camino que Kyo ha tenido que recorrer para poder tener a Misao.

Otra razón es la aparición del mejor

This review will be the same for all of them-- excluding book seventeen and eighteen-- as I'm going to briefly review books 1-16

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 characte

Dear Reader,

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.

I am frustrated by our main heroine - she's childish, stupid, naive, etc. Yet I want to see where is all this going to end.

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

This was a great installment in this series. It was emotional, tense, and full of action. From the beginning both characters are their emotional extreme and that pace never really lets us as the plot unfolds. And the plot that unfolds is one of friendship and sacrifice.

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

Gather round, children! This wasn't quite as bad as the previous volume!

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.

Another violent shoujo manga. I love it! It was nice this time to see Misao be able to stand up for Kyo a bit. She's a pretty weak heroine but I still root for her especially in volumes like this one.

I hope that Kyo and misco get married soon even if he's really bossy but you have to admit Edward was bossy in twilight and we didn't complain why should we now.

The saga continues - Having killed Shuehei last volume to protect Misao, Kyo must now face the new leader of the Kitsune clan - Tadanobu. Only problem is the pair are close friends and neither want to fight to the death. Tadanobu is even in love with another human girl, but knows that his clan will force him to go after Misao. On top of that are of course all the added fears about what will happen if Misao does finally sleep with Kyo... will a child from their union kill her? Only the Senka Roku ...more

De verdad que este manga solo mejora, espero no tardar mucho en adquirir el siguiente tomo, ya que estoy enganchada y muero de ganas por saber como crece esta historia. Estos dos protagonistas se enfrentan a un verdadero dilema y conflicto existencial y es muy fácil identificarse con ellos y llevar su historia a la vida real.

Esta parejita es demasiado hermosa y los amo con el corazón, ellos son los que se verán afectados por la relación entre Kyo y Misao, pero su relación es mucho más bonita que la de los

'Misao is the bride of prophecy whose blood gives power to the demon who claims her. But most demons want to keep her power for themselves - by eating her! Now Misao is just trying to stay alive...'

In this volume, we meet Kyo's best friend, Tadanobu, who is also the heir to the Kitsune clan. Tadanobu doesn't want Misao, but he must try to claim her to protect the life of his human girlfriend and help his clan to prosper. Can Misao stop them before these two best friends fight to the death?

Every once in a while, you need to have some fun and read a manga. It’s a great way to unwind and forget about the stress. Black Bird Volume 4 was my ticket for some relaxation.
It’s been a while since I read a manga book and I knew that it was a good time to treat myself to some. So when I was at Barnes and Noble with my mom, I called up my sister and had her help look up on the last volume that I read of both Black Bird and Vampire Knight. Since I wasn’t confident which was my l

Ok so I would say that Black Bird volume 4 is a really good book. It is mostly about this girl who has fallen in love with this guy that she use to be childhood friends with but one day he had to live and before he left her he promises her that he will come back for her. Ok so the book I kind of can relate to what is going on in the book but at the same time I can't because the guy she fell in love with has been back for a little while now,the part that I can relate to the most is the part where ...more

This series is like a soap opera... it's so predictable, full of romance, but for some reason it just hooks you and you can't stop! I'm happy there has been a secondary story line that has been picked up that can keep readers interested so we aren't bored to tears for 13 more volumes while we see Kyo and Misao almost bang all the time. That gives me hope that the series won't lose its steam... at least hopefully not til it gets closer to the double digit volumes.

Oh man... I love Misao's dad! He

I can say that the protagonist has no problem with taking out problems, but is this acceptable? No F$%k No! Maybe in a demon world, but if demons are trying to acclimate themselves into the human world this is the first and foremost unacceptable way to win a woman over. Misao is clearly a weak willed character that I have lost any type of respect for.

Yay! Misao has finally grown a pair! Maybe she won't be such a damsel in distress anymore. proud. So proud.

Things get a little dicey in Black Bird, Volume 4 when Kyo's childhood best friend comes back to town. Due to clan obligations and demon laws, their friendship gets put to the test. These longtime friends share more than a silly common interest in smutty magazines, they both are in love with humans who they will risk everything for.

Black Bird volume 4 continues much in the way that the previous volume has. Misao continues to be utterly useless in her endeavors and predictably end up in some trap or trick that she's too dumb to avoid for herself. She is simultaneously pressured to sleep with Kyo by not only her boyfriend but his entire family. Throw in some attempt rapes, jokes thrown at the way that Kyo basically assaults Misao, and Kyo's possessiveness whenever Misao so much as looks at a non Tengu demon, and you basicall ...more

This is one of my favourite supernatural shōjo mangas!

Misao sees somethings that other people can't, and if they could, they would be scared to death! Normally, the monsters would do small harmless things, such as pull her hair or jump on her bac. But on her sixteenth birthday, the creatures take it farther by trying to kill her, as her blood gave improve their lives.
However, luckily she's saved by a lost childhood friend who has returned. His name is Kyo Usui, but he has a dark secret too. He
