It's one of the best manga series i have ever read.

Misao wonders if Kyo loves her or not, if he protects her simply because she is the bride of prophecy, or if he protects her because he is in love with her.

Have you ever questioned whether you should buy a volume 2 because volume 1 was so good? Well have no fear with this volume 2, it is as excellent as the first! The situation is still the same as the first book with Misao as the heroine protected by Kyo the tengu, who is a teacher at her high school and the leader of his demon clan (he lives 2 separate lives). I loved how easily this book went from the last volume into this one, and of course there was a very small review on a few pages in the beginning about her situation (but every book I've read has done that, and she did not go overboard on it either which I very much liked).

The book explained many things that needed to be explained such as why Misao lost her memory, why Kyo was so attached to Misao, and why Kyo became head of the clan and not his brother which was older. The book moves along at a comfortable speed, having Misao's feeling come out in an appropriate timing. In my experience, some books just keep having a person question their feelings for so long that it becomes just sickening. But this book did not do that. Kanoko Sakurakoji did just perfect and explained everything in ease, which is hard to do as a book writer. She has a true talent in creating a story in a natural and realistic fashion. I mean realistic in timing-wise, relationship-building, and having things come out in the open when they should. This volume is more sexual (but nothing ever truly happens) than the first novel, and everyone should know that this is truly meant for older teens. But it is a great book, which goes to show why I am already signed up to get the third and fourth volumes!

I MUST WARN, IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO HEAR TOO MUCH ABOUT THIS STORY (to save the surprises within Volume 2) DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER!

This is an adorable novel with a hint of maturity. I like seeing Kyo at school, but I really want to see more of the demons and Kyo's demonic side... which we got a peek at in book 1. This book is rated teen so obviously there are going to be sexual references as well as more mature and adult content.

I really liked seeing the angst and hatred between Kyo's brother (whom he took the clan away from) and the clansmen. Yes it's like a harem but so is alot... think Ouren High School Host Club, all the yaoi, Bound Beauty, the Devil within... exc. The character in my eyes is a slight cry baby, but then again I might be too if I get attacked, blood drunk, claimed as a bride, memories shot, kidnapped and all around chased.... hmmmm I might be a bit of a crybaby. What I am interested in is seeing where this story goes. In Bloody Kiss the hero and heroine get together at book 2... so maybe no book 3? But in most manga it takes a while... that's the entire plot line build up. So while they didn't 'officially' get together in this book, it seems like the choice to go forward was made and I'm curious to see what trouble and enemies come in the next books. Overall it's a fun series and one worth reading.

I love this series and can not always find them at my local book store, so I buy them on here when I am fixing for the newest chapters. They always get to me quickly and in perfect condition. This will continue to be my go to place to purchase them.

Black Bird is the winner of the 54th Shogakukan Manga Award.

The second manga in the series starts off with the arrival of Kyo's vassals, a group made up of five incredibly handsome men, and three super-adorable boys. Sagami, Hoki, Buzen, Zenki, Sojo and the triplets Taro, Saburo, and Jiro (who are way too cute, especially little Taro!). They are called the 8 Daitengu, which means "great tengu". We also meet Misao's father, Yoshio, who is a folklorist and has an extensive collection of books on folklore. Oh no! What will we find out?!

The main plot point in this one is whether or not Kyo truly loves Misao; it's something that she questions through the entire book. Misao wonders if Kyo loves her or not, if he protects her simply because she is the bride of prophecy, or if he protects her because he is in love with her.

I really loved the second book, it kept my interest from front to back, and that is saying a lot. :) So I was really happy with this book and I'm glad I bought it. It definitely kept me wanting more! The story is great, the character development was great along with the plot. I love the art too, Kanoko Sakurakoji does an awesome job all around with the story and art. I love the absurd comments that Kyo makes, they are so ridiculous and super funny! If you read the first one and liked it then I would totally recommend this one for you, you won't be disappointed!

But I would like to give a warning there are scenes of one of the characters being tied up and molested. There isn't any nudity and it isn't hardcore but the act is still molestation. I know this can be a hard subject for some. So I just wanted to give the readers a little bit of a warning, I'm sure there are people who would like to know this before purchasing.
