Chibi Vampire Volume 1 by Yuna Kagesaki (2006)

Description: Karin is a cute little girl who also happens to be a vampire… with a twist. Once a month, she experiences intense bleeding from her nose-we’re talking gushers! In other words, she’s a vamp with blood to spare, so rather than stealing blood from humans she actually gives her blood to them. If done right, this can be an extremely positive experience that benefits the “victim” as much as the vamp. The problem is that Karin never seems to do things right!

Review: I thought this was really a cute book. I had a lot of laughs with it as well. The humor is really great. The story is pretty interesting and I really can’t wait to see where Karin ends up. More importantly, if she ends up with Usiu. It also was an interesting take on the whole vampire lore. Instead of doing the sucking, she actually gives people blood and also helps them with their problems. This is most definitely not your run of the mill vampire story. With great artwork, it is a great book all around. I can’t wait to finish the series.

Score: 4 out of 5
