This first caught my attention from watching the Anime on Netflix "12 episodes". I wanted to see how the manga differed. Like with most anime vs. manga their is always many things left out. This book is big, but I've seen bigger. I read this copy in about four an a half hours give or take doing things. The quality of the book itself is wonderful, pictures, words etc. I would suggest reading it to anyone asking me for a new series, if your into vampires, werewolves, kinda love triangle with a loyalty feeling. It's ranged for "Older teen 16+" I found an ordered my copy from Barns and Noble for $15.98. If you buy in-store your looking at $19.99 plus tax. I also believe that the Anime is also offered at Barns and Noble but I didn't look into prices. I think its on blu-ray, and if your not wanting to buy from their I suggest Best Buy. Besides Netflix if your a member.
I really love the fact at the beginning out of each volume their is some poetry that pertains to the following chapters. Then at the end of each volume your given these little short stories called "Dance with the Vampire Maids" It's very funny!! I quite like how the manga started Vs. the anime. NOT saying I didn't enjoy that cause I did. I added some pictures, the cover art, what the case would look like the the DVD series, and a fun picture. Hope you enjoyed my first blog about a series, that it was very informational.
Overall Rating: 5 Stars
Let His kingdom come!
Nothing is more real than this illusion.
It has smashed the cathedrals.
Millennia have sung, suffered, and murdered one another
For this illusive kingdom that never comes.
-And so it is responsible for the whole of human history.
