    Force yourself past the first volume

    My friends reccomended this with great enthusiasm, and I'll be honest, the first volume wan't to make me just put it down. The first and second chapters are horribly predictable and boring, but once you get past it, it's so funny, dramatic and fantastical. The later volumes have such depth and realistic drama that I keep having to read it over and over. It's a great read for those who love dark fantasy and some mystery.

    Interesting first book to a series

    I think the best things about this manga are the illustrations. I confess, I bought it because of the cover art. It also makes for a very interesting story, however the overall plot is similar to the manga Hellsing. I would definitely recommend it though, and I will surely read the 2nd and 3rd mangas when they are released in paperback.

    What can I say?
    Well, I bought the manga after hearing from my friends about it, practically non stop, and had to know what the hubbub was about.
    Now, Im a big manga fan, and did research on the characters and general plot before buying and after buying and reading this manga I must say it's simply great.
    If you're into the dark yet hilarious manga series, you'll love this. Wether you come for the violence, or for the sillyness, you'll definitely stay for the wonderful cast. The Characters drew me into this manga like a moth to a flame, and I eagerly await the next volume.
