Summary: Jae is a Korean student who came to Europe to study art. Things aren’t going her way, but she’s determined to make it. One night, her friend Melissa brings a drunk guy to her apartment and asks if he can stay there for the night. Jae doesn’t like it, but agrees. That night she has a dream that the drunk guy drinks her blood…which, of course, turns out NOT to be a dream.
Jae is surprisingly unafraid of the vampire, Michael, and starts to paint his portrait. The two strike an unusual deal: if Jae allows the vampire to feed on her, he will pose for her. His beauty and alluring preternatural energy could be exactly what Jae needs to finally succeed as a painter.
Graphics Rating: 5/5
Plot Rating: 4/5
Opinion: Graphics… Personally… I love the graphics. But they are extremely artistic and a lot of people may not like it. I know when I started reading it I hated it because of the graphics. I know more then a few friends who refused to read it at all because of the graphics. It doesn’t help that Michael (The male lead) looks like a woman. But it really has its beautiful moments too.
Now, the plot is the absolute best part of this manga. SO GOOD! So extremely original and a real page turner. The mystery part is SO interesting.The characters are lovable too… in their own freakish way.
If you can get over the graphics go out and buy this now.
Final Rating: 4/5
