Her childhood friend Kyo suddenly returns to save her and tend to her cuts–with his tongue! It turns out Misao is the bride of prophecy, whose blood gives power to the demon clan who claims her.

Graphics Rating: 4/5
Plot Rating: 4/5

Opinion: I have love, love, LOVED this series since before it was licensed. So I bought it and loved it even more. So graphics are nice a bit above average. The plot is very original, although in some parts it reminds me of Love Monster. I rated this for teens because although there is some smut there is NOTHING there. It is very light although I don’t know if it will become more intense later… although if it does Viz might not have picked it up. There is something about this story that is so sweet and heart breaking.

Reasons not to like it. The male protagonist will drive feminists up the wall because he is such a pervert and the girl just takes it. Personally, that’s my thing… but it isn’t everyone’s thing.

Final Rating: 4/5

Extra: None
