I hate admitting this, but this is my first manga. That said it was a short, light read and definitely did not intimidate like I was afraid it might. I didn't pick it up because it was a manga, but rather because it was a young adult selection with vampires and for that reason this review has to be from the viewpoint of a book reader, not a manga afficiando, sorry!
Since I haven't read the Vampire Kisses series yet I'm pretty sure I missed some of the subtleties of the storyline in this one. I did find it very cute and fluffy, a read that would definitely work for a tween to teen female audience. With plenty of cutesy expressions and smooches it should appeal to the romantic set. Toss in a couple of short action scenes and a flashback and this first volume sets up for the next quite nicely.
Overall I really loved the illustration style and the 'looks' that were chosen for the various characters. I look forward to checking out the next volume when the mood for another manga strikes. Oh! And please do note that a handful of pages in the back are devoted to info on the creative process for the characters looks as mentioned above and a glimpse at the 4th Vampire Kisses novel.
Readers familiar with Raven and Alexander from the Vampire Kisses series will most likely enjoy the manga version as well.
Goth-girl Raven and her vampire boyfriend, Alexander, find four fresh graves in Dullsville's local cemetery. Raven discovers that the gang is lead by Alexander's half-vampire cousin, Claude Sterling. Claude holds a grudge against Alexander and he's come to town to get his revenge.
A brand new adventure and some new characters mean that you don't have to read the main series first. I'm not a huge fan of manga, but this story translates well to the medium. The story is entertaining and the art is gorgeous.
