@Sangermaine OH, I was wrong, thanks for the chapter numbers. I probably forgot about it since it wasn't very memorable. I thought there'd be a significant biological reaction immediately like in the novel Interview with the Vampire (I think it was) where the change to a vampire was significant and immediate. Even just his existing canines coming out and growing new ones would throw in some impact effect. I guess all the biological changes happen in between chapters as he loses the glasses as expected and changes physically a bit (at least by Anne Rice or other standards, you become better looking as a vampire to some some degree. Perhaps to better attract human prey.) But still, alot of build up for a two panel bite and "I'm a servant now haha" imo.

Still, I'm tired of the waiting and "what is love" stuff that just seems thrown in there to drag it out longer. If I wanted a philosophical romance story I'd choose one for that but this vampire one is skipping out on alot of vampire-genre specific stuff in favor of this meta love debate. It's been a long time since I read Anne Rice's work but I liked it because it dealt with issues like immortality, no longer aging, hiding from sunlight and finding safety, secret vampire society, disassociation from human society and life, the notion of outliving everyone you ever knew, etc. Plus there's serious biological effects that are weighed heavily like sight, hearing, hunger, etc. Personality changes. If we could move on past the "becoming a vampire" part we could get there and I'd like to see how the two deal with those things.

Just my commentary on it. I still love the series, just my two cents.

@Opticalwinter Chapter 29, you see the bite that turns him on p. 16, he and Seri say he’s a servant now on p.18. The next chapter, 30, is a conversation between Akkun and Yamori explicitly discussing what it’s like for Akkun being a vampire now.

You don’t remember, say, Akkun telling Yamori to zip up his jacket over his neck because now Akkun finds the sight of a bare neck too tempting?

@Sangermaine which chapter was this? I don't remember reading him actually bring turned, just their relationship being resolved.

As for sunlight, it can’t be just that sunlight kills vampires. That vampire in the school endured 10 years of hell starving himself for the chance to die. If he could have just committed suicide in the sunlight any time, he would have done that years ago. His death had to have been caused by the ring thing the hunter gave him. Further, when Kou told Hatsuka about the guy’s death and turning to ash, Hatsuka said something like “Turned to ash? Could it be...?” implying that the sunlight death wasn’t usual and was the result of something specific.

Maybe that’s what Nazuna’s been hiding? That she actually can go out during the day, she’s not confined to the night like Kou thinks? She might have held that back because it’d shatter his ideal of the magical night time when the reality is it’s not special at all.

(haven't seen any character actually get turned yet. None!)


Yes we have, we saw Seri turn Menhera-kun aka Akkun. It seems like you’re not really paying attention, since you also seemed to miss that examining the nature of love has been the driving theme of the entire series.

@MeliFuteli
he must either have mental issues or is a robot


Koi definitely has something weird going on mentally. He himself talks a lot about his lack of feelings or ability to connect to anyone, and numerous other characters have commented on it as well. The whole reason he left school was being told he didn’t have emotions. Something’s going on with him. His behavior and way of thinking are really unnatural.

Wow, you can tell he's an oblivious middle schooler by the existential bullshit he's spouting about love. Lol.

Anyway I know this storys gonna go to sh*t, it'll probably get axed once th readers are sick and tired of it all and the author will rush some bullshit ending.

[BAD END]

The author should just turn this into a battle action manga as soon as he gets turned lol.

@MeliFuteli " There is no way in hell even a young boy wouldn't know what love is"
I reeeeeeeeealy wouldn't count on that If I were you. THere as many definitions of love as there are stars in the sky. Honestly, 90% of people don't know what love really is. They just try to interpret it in the best way they can.

It started cute but now I am worried

@Opticalwinter I completely agree. The plot from the beginning was already absurd. There is no way in hell even a young boy wouldn't know what love is, but I assumed that he would quickly learn and the story move on, and yet here we are. He still seems to have 0 idea what love even is, let alone any intimate or romantic feelings for Nazuna leading me to conclude he must either have mental issues or is a robot. I'm getting very tired of how directionless and slow paced this manga is. I'll probably give a it a few more chapters and if nothing happens, it's a drop for me.

I kinda see them separating ways and kou not falling inlove with her, or more like I just can't see them together as a couple

I'm getting really tired of these "what is love" pseudo-intellectual pseudo-meta chapters where the author is just dragging it on either for its own purpose, because they themselves have no notion of it, or because they wanna have a slow burn romance despite having two characters that don't seem the type.

This guy isn't realistic, spending time with a girl that long and everything, either he loves her by now or he won't ever. Sick of this. Especially at his age he's pumped full of hormones. Maybe the authors afraid the manga will end once he turns (which is only true if they lack inventiveness, which seems to be common among manga stories... The authors just end it at the point of love seemingly because of an inability to imagine an interesting plot that involves simultaneous romantic life and something else)

@ArtzarB Oh she'll definitely try to leave soon, because the author clearly can't bring themself to let the vampiric change happen (haven't seen any character actually get turned yet. None!) so they'll take any path to delay that as long as possible.
