Waffle Wednesdays: Black Bird Vol. 1

By Kanoko Sakurakoji
3.5 / 5 Gnomes

There is a world of myth and magic that intersects ours, and only a special few can see it. Misao Harada is one such person, and she wants nothing to do with magical realms. She just wants to have a normal high school life and maybe get a boyfriend. All that changes one day when Misao is attacked by a demon. Her childhood friend Kyo suddenly returns to save her and tend to her cuts--with his tongue! It turns out Misao is the bride of prophecy, whose blood gives power to the demon clan who claims her. But most demons want to keep her power for themselves--by eating her! Now Misao is just trying to stay alive...and decide if she likes it when Kyo licks her wounds.

So, I'm starting to think Shojo Beat manga are my type of manga.  I prefer a love story (even if it is a bit demented) to warrior fighting dudes.  But I've been enjoying Black Butler, and that's not really a warrior fighting dude.  Okay, so maybe I like manga that do not include warrior fighting dudes?  I don't know.  I'm still just trying to get a handle on reading books from back to front, right to left.

Misao Harada can see demons.  Which would pretty much stink like nobodies business.  And bad luck for her, she's turned sixteen, which means that every demon in the area is coming for her because she is apparently the "Bride of Prophecy" which means she either has to marry a demon or be eaten by one.  Kind of feeling bad for Misao Harada.  Then there's Kyo, a boy from her past who ends up being this super powerful demon, and he's pegged her as his betrothed.  She kind of likes him, and by the end, you start to think that maybe he kind of likes her too despite her tasty blood and his lusty desires.

Wow.  Okay.  A weird story, but I'm having fun so far. Is it an anime?  I will have to investigate.
