Manga Monday: Black Bird

Black Bird by Kanoko Sakurakoji

Genre: Action, Fantasy, Romance, Ecchi
Art: 3.8 stars
Plot: 2.8 stars
Characters: 2.8 stars
Serialized: Viz Media

There is a world of myth and magic that intersects ours, and only a special few can see it. Misao Harada is one such person, and she wants nothing to do with magical realms. She just wants to have a normal high school life and maybe get a boyfriend. All that changes one day when Misao is attacked by a demon. 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. But most demons want to keep her power for themselves--by eating her! Now Misao is just trying to stay alive...and decide if she likes it when Kyo licks her wounds.

My reaction: I read the manga up to volume 5 and do not plan to continue the series. There are too many instances where I feel as though only through raping Misao in the later volumes, does one become powerful to be some of figurehead within the demon world. I just can't continue to read something like that.

Vol 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8
