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

Opinion: Pictures are pretty. LOVE LOVE LOVE Setona Mizushiro! The characters look the same but you can tell how different they are.

This story is actually so interesting. And suddenly… VAMPIRES! I really love the way vampires are portrayed in this story. It’s SO unique, and weird. It definitely is a horror. I really want Dimitri to go out and sing in the modern times. Hmmm… engaging and fun characters. Azusa annoys me but as Alice I think she’s okay. A LOT of tl;dr. Seriously. I skipped so much you wouldn’t believe. I can see it evolving a lot like After School Nightmare though… After School was better! ;)

If you’re into horror read this, psychological too (kinda)!

Edit (10/08/2018): Fore warning while it says “complete” the ending was a little amiss for me and supposedly it’s because the series went on permanent hiatus. Who knows? But it’s important to understand before you start reading so you won’t be disappointed.

Final Rating: 4/5

    Setona Mizushiro also did a short series X-day that I would recommend. It was serialized in the US years ago. There are only 2 volumes. It’s about teen angst and drama. I love it!

    Cool! I’ve heard of it but I haven’t read it yet… I’ll definitely look into that soon. Thanks! :D
