He loves her blood, but does her love her?!

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.



“If a monster drinks my blood, his life will be prolonged. If he eats my flesh he will never grow old, he’ll be immortal. If he takes me for his wife, his whole clan will prosper.”

Misao has become the Holy Fruit for demons and because of that she’s become the target of Demon Clans. I like the premise enough but I just can’t stand the perverseness of this manga. Oh sure the smut is hot but I just don’t like perverted leading men and guys who use force on women. Shoujo manga is supposed to be read but young girls so basically it’s like a Young Adult book but I think the content in this manga is not really appropriate for young girls. I sorta skimmed through some chapters, I’m amazed I’ve finished the whole 18 volumes, I said to myself I’m just gonna give it up after 10 volumes but the story got interesting for me and the ending satisfied me so I guess it was not so bad after all.

I definitely won’t recommend this book to young girls because of the smut and I hate it because some of the volume covers shows that the male MC ties the girl or chokes her, that didn’t happen in the actual manga, he’s just a perverted asshole but has his sweet side too. I guess this is one of those guilty pleasure manga reads … LOL^^
