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.

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.

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).

I love reading the Millennium Snow series. It is so funny, some romance, and action. I am so glad Amazon have millennium snow volumes 1 & 2 in one book. It literally a 2-in-1 book. The book was really big compared to a single volume, but that is to be expected since this book has volumes 1 & 2 combined. Got it for a cheap price- compared to the other prices if you buy volume 1 and 2 separately.

The first volume in this series introduces us to Chiyuki and Toya, one with little time to live and the other with an unimagineable expanse of years ahead of him. It's the start of an endearing love story. With the adorable Yamimaru (Toya's bat-like servant), it's fun times ahead. Note: I'm usually very uninterested in vampire anything but I made an exception in this case. Happy I did.

Vol. 1 - This is adorable! I'm on a quest to find shoujo that I actually like ... there must be some. I chose this because of the vampire theme and the summary made it sound as if romance was not the main element. I found the story cute and funny. We have the typical couple at odds but what is different here is that the girl, Chiyuki, likes the boy, Toya, from the get-go and lets him know it. He is the one who won't admit he likes her, though of course he speeds to her side the first time she gets a boo-boo. LOL. I like the girl's attitude here; she's sassy and has spunk, not a door-wipe like most shoujo I've tried. Of course, Toya, knocks her around a bit in jest, you get used to this in shoujo, and calls her names, mostly "stupid". I prefer Dojo's calling Iku "bonehead" in Library Wars, but name calling is cultural and I'm sure the Japanese equivalents are more endearing. I know in French they use animal names such as chicken, flea, otter, hen and even cabbage and egg! Anyway, I kept waiting to find out who the other guy was on the front cover and I *love* who it turns out to be. Sweet and fun. And the sidekick, Yami, the bat? Perfect comedic partner and kawaii! Looking forward to the next volume. Unfortunately, this volume does end with a (perverted) one-off which left a sour taste in my mouth ('nough said). (4/5)

Vol. 2 - I'm totally satisfied with this volume but we need to suspend belief and just go with the flow because plotting is all over the place. Things happen for no apparent reason and then everybody just moves on to the next thing :-( Normally, that would bother me but this story is basically "fluff" and really a lot of fun that to analyze it would just be pretentious. The characters are all so cute, I just love them! Of course I like Toya the best!
