Black Bird, Vol. 1

Black Bird, Vol. 1 - Kanoko Sakurakouji My Thoughts:

This is visually a very beautiful manga. Misao is one of those passive females heroines that is paired with an older aggressive male Kyo. There is a strong dark fairy tale feel to this story that I really like.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

He loves her blood, but does her love her?!R to L (Japanese Style).

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.
