Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Japan this popular shojo vampire series is called Karin, and it concerns a young supernatural girl's search for her place in the world. Karin, the middle child of an ancient vampire family, is a kind of vampire-in-reverse. Instead of feeding off victims, as her dream-boat older brother does, she must bite humans and donate blood. Karin is torn between wanting to be a normal girl and her nature, which is something of an embarrassment among vampires. The art is standard manga and doesn't do much to advance the characters, but sets the spooky, noirish scene. Both plot and characters are well-defined, with Karin's little sister, the bat-controlling Anju, the most intriguing player. Karin's predicament echoes the embarrassment of becoming a woman; her blood-cravings are monthly, and unless she controls them, her desire for the new boy, Usiu, will drive her from school. Though Karin's nose bleeds are a bit gross, the story works for all ages without being trivial. This could end up being a strong series that appeals both to younger, horror-loving neo-goth chicks and to the standard shojo crowd. (May) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    a fantasticly fun frolic for fans of fruitful fantasties

    Chibi Vampire takes what has become a saturated genre filled with love and vampires and digs itself its own little corner that has fast become a favorite in my collection of manga. Chibi Vampire focuses on the character of a high school girl named Karin and her trials and tribulations juggling school, her family, as well as her unique persona as a special type of Vampire.<BR/><BR/>The plot is nothing special, and frankly at face value will not catch anyones attention. The true greatness of the series is in the characters themselves as well as the constant morphing of the genre of the story itself. Miss Kagesaki does an absolutely stellar job of transforming Karins story between comedy, drama, as well as romance. The beauty of this hybrid is that it never bogs itself down too deep in one specific genre. It seems to perfect the method of being absolutely hilarious at some moment, and then being able to enchant you with a more serious dramatical tone. Personally I feel like the Romantic tones in this story were done extremely well. It feels heartfelt yet doesn't fall into the all too common manga trap of dragging on forever with the characters never progressing anywhere. Even though it does get a little sappy, inside the context of the story it feels pretty genuine. This is coming from a 21 year old guy with little tolerance for over the top romances. <BR/><BR/>Miss Kagesaki's art style is not as detailed and refined as some of the other mangas found out there, but feels pretty stylized. While the art won't win any medals, I feel like it gets the job done for the purpose of the manga. For all the guys (and girls!) that are interested, this manga does not feature any heavy ecchi scenes. And although there is the occassional risque moment here and there, the artist never relies on them to carry the manga. I feel like the art really shines in the comedic aspects of the book, especially during scenes where Karin expresses her awkwardness or embarresment. I also particularly enjoy the deadpan looks of all the characters in the book as well. And I couldn't see the art style of Kenta's mother drawn any other way; her faces are priceless.<BR/><BR/>But the greatest aspect of this series is easily the characters themselves. I absolutely couldn't get enough of Karin's family, all the way from her irrate grandmother to her eerie younger sister. The entire family and their antics never got old for me, and I contribute a large part of that to the incredible job Miss Kagesaki did in creating such unique and explosive personalities. And I can't say enough about the personality of Kenta's mother. This series is worth reading for her character alone!<BR/><BR/>I will admit when I first picked up the series, I didn't have very big expectations. But boy am I glad I decided to check it out cause it has honestly blown me away. If you find yourself looking for a new manga to read, I would reccommend you give this one a try because I feel like it will blow you away as well!

    The most creative work!

    I stumbled upon this as I was online and looked it up. I wasn't too interested, but I decided to check out the anime. As soon as I started watching that, I begged to get this book. It was almost love at first sight. This book is super creative, and its well drawn!

    Interesting and funny...

    This manga is very interesting, as it is about a girl named Karin Maaka and she is a vampire. An abnormal vampire if I might add. When she is near people with her blood preferance her blood multiplies and comes out as nosebleeds... This manga is also funny as it has some comedic moments.

    A+++ for Chibi Vampire

    When I saw Chibi Vampire and read the quick description on the back I feel in love. A vampire in reverse? That's something you'll never find in another manga. Karin and her family are just so interesting and quite funny. I must say I love her older brother, Ren and her younger sister, Anju. Anju may seem odd, especially with her psycho dolls, but she's so cool. I knew once i saw her that she was going to be one of my favorites. It was the same with Ren. He's very mysterious and very attractive. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a good laugh and a unique storyline.

    I do not recommend

    The first volume of Chibi vampire was great, in fact I still read it sometimes.
    It was creepy, scary, and attractive in many ways. I was so eager to buy the next book in the series.
    So I bought it, Chibi Vampire #2. With this book I was very dissapointed and promised myself if the next book was no good to me I would quit buying them.
    So I bought Chibi Vampire #3. This one was a complete disaster. A mess in the very least! I disliked everything about it. The characters, the art, everything! So I finally said so long to Chibi Vampire, and never bought another copy.
    The End.

    Cutsy

    Chibi Vampire was very cute and original. Who would have thought of a vampire who gives blood? I liked how the story progresses and how the characters are defined. It makes for a good read.

    Amazing as a Novel More Interesting Than CSI

    'Chibi Vampire' is as amazing in plot as a novel and more interesting than CSI. The question I kept asking myself was when will she Try the transfer student and how does he look at her?

    My First and Always Favorite Manga

    I've just started collecting manga. Chibi-Vampire just happens to be my first. I totally love it! It's a story about a vampire girl who is different from her so-called normal vampire family. Instead of sucking blood she makes it. So when she bites someone, she gives blood to them. It might sound strange or uninteresting but this manga has captivated me and drawn in my undivided attention. If you're a fan of vampires and such, I really recommend it to anyone who's reading my review!
