Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up—Chiyuki was fated to die from birth. Despite her condition, she remains optimistic for the sake of others and always strives to see the next snowfall. Fate may have other plans though, when Toya, an anemic vampire whose blood could save her, drops into her life. Only the most powerful of bonds will heal his wounded heart. Even with the possibility of living 1,000 years, Chiyuki never seems self-serving, making her a delightfully conceived counterpart to Toya. The tone never becomes tragic, thanks to some nicely interspersed humor and the addition of the werewolf Satsuki. For years, fans longed for the conclusion to Millennium Snow, and with it now complete, Viz has reprinted the first two volumes in omnibus format. While the screentones are expertly employed to portray emotions, Bisco's pre-hiatus bishounen style is not yet fully developed, this includes some inconsistent facial proportions. By comparison, the final volumes show a marked improvement. This title has a tenderness to it that other vampire romances lack; it chooses to focus on the time people share together within their allotted lifespan. It is only by understanding and saving one another that Chiyuki and Toya can build a true bond and find eternal love.—Rachel Forbes, Oakville Public Library, Ontario, Canada --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

Bisco Hatori made her manga debut with Isshun kan no Romance (A Moment of Romance) in LaLa DX magazine. The comedy Ouran High School Host Club is her breakout hit. When she's stuck thinking up characters' names, she gets inspired by loud, upbeat music (her radio is set to NACK5 FM). She enjoys reading all kinds of manga, but she's especially fond of the sci-fi drama Please Save My Earth and Slam Dunk, a basketball classic.

Format: Paperback
This Shojo-Beat manga is all about a 17 year old girl, Chiyuki, and an 18 year old vampire, Toya (There's always a Toya in these sorts of things, ya know). Chiyuki was born with a heart condition that has threatened to take her life since the day she was born. Toya is a vampire who refuses to drink human blood.

One day Chiyuki sees a "boy" fly off the rooftop of a building and goes to find him. She then meets up with Toya and his batty friend, Yami. Yami tells Chiyuki about Toya needing to find someone to become his companion of 1,000 years. Chiyuki, who is growing closer and closer to the end, asks Toya to drink her blood in order that she may live to see the first snow of every year for a thousand years, hence the title Millenium Snow. Toya and Chyuki become friends, but their friendship becomes threatened when a third party comes into the mix. Will Chiyuki still want Toya? Is it love or just a desperate want to live? or Will Chiyuki fall for the guy of every girl in her school's dream?

The artwork is not great, but Bisco Hatori does mention in her comments that this was some of her earlier work. Her little side notes are fun to read as well, so don't forget to read them should you pick this manga up. Its only two volumes, and not the best story in the world, but its a nice little read.

Format: Paperback
Chiyuki Matsuoka has had a heart problem since she was a baby and every year she wishes that she will live long enough to see the year's first snow. When she is seventeen it looks like Chiyuki's yearly wish won't come true and her heart will give out before the first snow. Then she meets Toya, an eighteen year old vampire with a humorous bat sidekick. Toya insists that he hates human blood when in reality he's just worried about condemning himself to loneliness if he forms the traditional partnership with a human in which, in exchange for the human's blood, both human and vampire will live for a thousand years. Chiyuki volunteers to be his human partner, but he refuses. Nonetheless, Chiyuki becomes determined to stay by his side. This might become a little more difficult with the appearance of Satsuki, a playboy with an interest in Chiyuki whose firm insistence that he is completely normal actually hides a shameful secret.

Ouran High School Host Club is one of my all-time favorite series, so I was interested in seeing what Millenium Snow, Bisco Hatori's first manga series, was like. While it definitely isn't as good as Ouran, the sweetness and humor that infuses Ouran can be found here. While Chiyuki isn't as cool a heroine as Ouran's Haruhi, I do like her and Toya together and I also thought that Toya's bat sidekick was funny, especially when he takes Chiyuki's side and opposes Toya.

Right now there are only two manga volumes out in this series and it's currently on a break while Hatori works on Ouran (don't worry, volume 2 doesn't end on a cliffhanger).

Format: Paperback
From the time that Chiyuki was born, the doctors have been predicting her death, due to her congenital heart condition. She spends a lot of time going in and out of the hospital. Now she is seventeen, and all that she wants is to live long enough to see the next snow. And then she meets Toya, a young vampire - and life will never be the same again.

It is only because of the full moon that she notices the boy in black as he steps off the roof of the hospital. Leaving her room without permission, she finds that she must see what has happened to him. She finds him on the ground and offers to help, only to find that he is surly and unappreciative - and uninjured. Which is when she learns that he is a vampire, and he has a companion in the form of a bat named Yamimaru, who brings him food when he is most in need of it. Not the typical food one might associate with a vampire but, rather, human food. You see, Toya eschews blood, wants nothing to do with it! As a result, though, he often finds himself in a weakened condition. The rude boy rushes off, but inadvertently leaves one shoe behind, which Chiyuki takes with her. Of course that means he must come back for it, which he does.

In talking to Yamimura, Chiyuki learns that most vampires find a human partner by the time that they turn 18, in a reciprocal relationship that ensures long life to the human and a constant form of nourishment to the vampire. Toya is almost 18 now and has no one, even though he will live to be a thousand years old. Chiyuki offers to be that partner, but Toya refuses, in disdain. When he learns of her condition, he relents, and agrees to take her out for a little bit, to have some fun. A crisis ensues, and a decision must be made.

Format: Paperback
Chiyuki lies in a hospital bed with a fatal heart condition. One night she notices a young man fall from the rooftop. Upon further investigation this young man proves to be a full blooded vampire, destined to live eternally with his faithful bat servant, Yamimaru. Chiyuki begs him to grant her eternal life so that she won't die young, but the man, Toya, refuses to damn another living soul with the same affliction that curses him so. He reluctantly decides to extend her life for a time because he wants her to see the snow again one last time, and Chiyuki grabs at the chance to live her life to the fullest before her heart gives out on her a final time.

This story is sweet, endearing, and lot's of fun. I really hope that there is more than just two volumes (please tell me that there is!). Peppered with Hatori's signature style of art the pages are glorious. I enjoy the premise of this greatly.
