Both Kaya and the reader are misled into thinking that a very attractive woman he’s making dates with is a source of jealousy — but the plot’s more convoluted than that. Which makes this volume less satisfying than some of the others, which focus more on the pair’s emotions and less on the cultural politics. The core conflict remains the same, whether Kaya can be a perfect secretary for her boss at the same time her feelings are involved with her love for him. Everything is answered with, “yours is the only blood I want.”
Typical of a final volume is how the series concludes with plans for marriage, with meeting Kaya’s mother, working out living arrangements, and love vows along the way. It all moves very quickly, with a final reminder of the virtue of competence. More entertaining to me was a short bonus story, “Midnight Butler”, that flips the genders. Another vampire, Marika, picks up a guy who then refuses to leave. He’s handsome but homeless, and he insinuates himself into her life by cleaning up both himself and her home. I was fondly reminded of the much-missed Tramps Like Us. (Review originally posted at ComicsWorthReading.com.)
I am happy that this series is over, but I’m also satisfied with the ending.
It left me feeling like there could be more story to tell, but I’m overall satisfied with how everything wrapped up. It was a nice conclusion for Kaya and Kyohei, if a little showdown impending with the vampire community, I believe that they can handle it.
I enjoyed that Kaya stayed his secretary, and took her job seriously, as well as being good at it. But it also got a little annoying—like, she can be his secretary at work but also his wife/girlfriend/whatever outside of work. That’s okay, too.
Overall, I’m happy with this series. It was good throughout, and the ending was very nice. I also enjoyed the extra chapter focusing on Marika. I’m liking her other series, Spell of Desire, although I hope it picks up more. There just seems to be something missing in Ohmi’s series to really grab me.
