It is definitely a good story and you get the gist of 200+ page book of the original story in these anime, but remember vol 1 is only half the story. You will not know what happens until 2nd half comes out unless you buy the regular book (...just buy it already !!) So honestly I think buying the original book and the anime on the kindle should go hand in hand so you aren't left hanging and you get the full details that would be missing from this story. OVer all you get the idea of the story, some of the funny comments and since it has Sherrilyn Kenyon's approval you know its then best representation of the story. I enjoyed them but then again I read the regular series several times before this came out so I know the story inside and out.
First, this was an excellent adapatation. I had only intended to glance through it when it arrived yesterday, but instead found myself reading straight to the end! The Dark Hunter series has a lot of underlying mythology that is important to the storyline - in particular, Kenyon's twist on vampires. The manga managed to capture the key parts without losing the richness of the original novels. It also retained the humor found throughout the series. This volume adapts the first half of "Night Pleasures," and even though I already know how it ends, I can hardly wait for volume 2. This manga has a more noticeable amount of text due to the necessary backround information, but it was presented in a good way.
Second, Kenyon was careful to stay true to manga's Japanese origins. The manga reads right to left, and according to her website the artist is Japanese, and subsequently so is the art style. The quality of the paper and printing is very high. I didn't notice any typos, and the text was clear even in the wordy sections. The art is fantastic. I love how the artist rendered the characters, especially Tabitha (goth chick). The characters have the quality many describe as anime (big eyes, expressive faces, teenage-looking). Though I liked it, it took some getting used to after reading the books and imagining them differently. I do wish the cover was a little more flashy (as volume 2's cover looks to be).
Fans of the novels should really enjoy the manga, but newcomers unfamiliar with the series can also enjoy it. Though I recommend reading the books as well (because they are just so good!), the manga can stand alone and be enjoyed without the books. Highly recommended!
Recommend it to anyone like vampire, humor, and a little bit of Greece legends and powers.
