Black Bird, Vol. 07 (Black Bird #7)
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. But she is the bride of demon prophecy, and her blood grants incredible powers, he...more
I absolutely adore Black Bird! The art, simply delicious. I definitely recommend it to anyone out there over 16. A wonderful shojo that screams yummy male characters through out.
There is NO way Sho's dead. The series is only half done. He's not dead, it's too easy, plus no body was found. The dragon prince shows up to start drama for a few chapters so Misao can cry some more. I feel like she needs to start selling blood popsicle to demons. Enter in Raikoh; a huge believer of pushing his way of life/beliefs on everyone else regardless of opinions. I don't like the guy, but in reality he calls bullshit on Kyo and Misao's relationship. Like you're willingly going ...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 characte ...more
First of all, he's vindictive, obsessive and a bit of an asshole. Misao kisses Sho in the previous volume in order to poison him to help Kyo, and he promptly returns the gesture in this volume by causing Misao to think he's going to cheat on her with the Prince of Kengamine's sister. Then, after Misao learns that Kyo's not going to cheat on her, ...more
In this volume, we're introduced to Raikoh, a human priest who hates demons. Instead of Misao being in danger, this time it's Kyo (for once).
Weirdly, the plot arc that seemed to be building in the last volume kind of fizzled out without nothing happening. That was a little bit disappointing. Another d ...more
Rating: * * 1/2
Kyo: “I'll make a chocolate banana.”(hide spoiler)]
Black Bird, Volume 7 is loaded with heavy make-out sessions and a fair amount of silly humor. This series is beginning to feel redundant and I feel myself getting slightly bored. I can feel something exciting about to happen, but I think I said that a few volumes ago.
This volume introduces the first character that I wholeheartedly felt deserved a bitch slap. Raikoh Watanabe ...more
I love Black Bird; it’s one of my favorite mangas that I’ve ever gotten my hands on. It’s completely captivating and I enjoy every single hot sizzling second between Kyo and Misao. I love Kyo. You can call him a jerk if you want and disagree with me, but I love him and I think he’s sexy too. That’s a bonus… don’t get me wrong he has his jerky moments but I actually find those moments laughable. I want to know who this new guy thinks he is trying to...more
Kyo is really sexy....but what I find interesting is even though he's sexy, I find I'm not attracted to him (I know!! Me, right!?). I think it's because I love him and Misao together so much that I just want him to love her. And when he's sweet with her, I'm totally all "Awwww!" I love it! I love him and I love her and I love them together!!
I also love all the other guys of the Daitengu! Especially Taro!!! Squee!! He's so adorable!! I also really love Zenki... I'm not su ...more
The morning after Kyo spends the night at Misao's house, when her father and mother come home they bring a guest. An exorcist (he is a simple friend in their eyes however)!
He can see right through Kyo as if he were transparent. And as if harassment wasn't bad enough he threatens to Misao that if ...more
This installment itself was on par with the rest. At least no one tried to rape Misao this time, but she was attacked and nearly killed by demons (again). Kyo and Misao's relationship is still rather messed up and unbalanced. She's also still playing the damsel card. Would really like her to be a little more independent. Maybe there will be one volume where she doesn't need to be rescued?
For my full series review on volumes ...more
The romance was great though as Kyo and Misao survive yet another test to their relationship.
The best part of this series though was the bonus chapters, " ...more
The bonus story that had nothing to do with anything was probably the best part. I actually wish "Angels" was ...more
I liked the introduction of a character who is human, can interact with the demonic world and yet has a the exact opposite view of demons and their world. However, if he doesn't grow and remains a fanatic he has the potential to become very irritating. The two little short stories after the main feature were really cute, giving ...more
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 ...more
I loved that the who dragon thing was to make Misao jealous because she kissed Sho and because Kyo is jealous. It makes sense to me that another race based upon creatures / devils would be jealous and more earthy.
This volume was cut short with an extra Angel Black Bird Gaiiden but they were super cute and I enjoyed them.
BOTTOM LINE: Every problem is solved by Kyo rescuing Misao. LOL!
That said.. I still enjoy the heck out of them.
The middle part introduces a new problem in Kyo and Misao's love. He's an exorcist and wants Misao to end her relationship with Kyo. After the ending though, I'm wondering if he'll still be a problem.
