This manhwa is a fantasy/romance about Myung-Ee, who is a boy-obsessed fifth grader crushing on the older pretty boys when she has a run-in with classmate Yu-Da Lee. Soon after their confrontation, she discovers that he has the same strange affliction she does: his eyes turn red at night. It turns out that they are "Earth Rabbits" who once lived on the moon but escaped extinction and their mortal enemy, the "Fox Tribe." The trouble is that these foxes are also here on Earth and it's rabbit season. Fast forward to high school. Myung-Ee is starting at a new school and there she finds her old friend Yu-Da, but he doesn't remember her. He hangs out with the popular kids, who are really part of the Fox Tribe, and they are guarding him because he is a rare "Black Rabbit" and his mature liver when eaten will give the foxes immortality. Myung-Ee has an ally in Mr. Taekwon V of the Soon-La Army, sworn enemy of the Fox Tribe, and together they might be able to save Yu-Da. The story is fast paced with a few laughs. All the characters are easy to differentiate and likable, especially Myung-Ee, whose spunkiness will endear her to readers. With the usual cliff-hanger ending, this volume will fly off the shelves.—Melissa T. Jenvey, New York Public LibraryCopyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Its good, had me lost a few times, but its good. (Love how it refrences yu-gi-oh in it xD its prety funny)
I love this book! It's one of the first manga I read as a kid. The only minor and overlookable problem is Myung-Ee. She is not my type of character/heroine what with her pretty boy obsession and the fact that her (quote from the Editorial Reviews) "spunkiness" can be annoying sometimes and can ruin perfect moments. That could have been done better in my opinion but on the other hand Yu-Da is looking mighty fine, mighty fine indeed!!!
Everyone love your book at school
