Manga Monday #5 Review of Black Bird by Kanoko Sakurakouji

Black Bird, Vol. 1 (Black Bird #1) by Kanoko Sakurakouji, JN Productions (Translator), Pancha Diaz (Editor)


Volumes 1-18.

Review: Great and fun read, lots of humor in the books and lots of Kyo hitting on Miso. After the first couple books the Myth part starts to come out more as the plot thickens and gets more intense along with the characters we all know and love. The artwork is also a great part of the manga series because its all so beautiful! I mean WOW! The story is so sweet too! Because Miso and Kyo are meant for each other and they met as little kids, which is also cute. the plot does take a dark turn half way through the series, which I don’t think anyone actually saw coming, and then the story is mostly dark love. Which is ok too, just a bit creepy and sweet.

4 out of 5 stars.

Young Adult. Mature Content. Fantasy. Myth. Romance.

Published by VIZ.

Summary: 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.
