I'll probably continue reading this till the end because it has peeked my interest. Having said that though, this manga has proven to me once again that just because the drawing seems to appeal to children, not everything is suitable for them.

This is one of those mangas.

Very good series. Well worth it by the time you get to the end of the last volume. (Volume 18)

I LOVE this series! It can get a little "hot and heavy" in a few areas (but what do you expect given the plot?), but it doesn't really show anything. I am definitely going to finish the series (I just finished book 6). I would definitely recommend people read this one.

Not my best or fav but a good shojo manga though its a little dark for some blood and being targeted by yokai "what a bummer" and sometimes misao being annoying causing kyo troubles as the misao often shows her carelessness. but the manga isnt half bad as its good in certain occations. 3/5 =/

This is one of those guilty pleasure types of books for me. It has an intriguing plot, though in this day and age of supernatural romance, the premise strikes a sense of deja vu. However, what is great about this manga is it knows how to be serious but also how to have fun. There is a lot of pain but also several humorous moments. Also the artwork is not too glaring. Overall, an enjoyable read and I'm adding this into my manga reading list.

Sexual Content: You've been warned

hDlVivace Jun 22, 2012

Sexual Content: To heal the female protagonist, the love interest licks her wounds. To take her as a bride, consummation is required. All adds up to underlying sexual tension. And sexual language too.

hDlVivace Jun 22, 2012

Violence: Many fight scenes.

hDlVivace Jun 22, 2012

Frightening or Intense Scenes: There are several action scenes with blood, torture, and pain.
