Yuna Kagesaki: CHEEKY VAMPIRE Vol. 7 & 8

Somehow, I'm not lucky with my search for pics of the mangas I've been reading. I couldn't find a cover pic of volume 8.

Yuna Kagesaki
Carlsen Manga
338 pages

Well, I can't possibly sum up what has been happening in those two volumes without spoiling everything, so let me give you a short rundown on the premise of the series.

Karin Maaka is a vampire. She's the middle child in a vampire family that left Europe for Japan long ago in order to lead a safer life. Only Karin is not what you'd expect from a vampire. She does not drink blood, she produces more than her body can take and unless she gives it to someone else, she has massive nose bleeding. This leads to hilarious situations in school, because, yes, Karin has to attend school as she still is not allergic to light.

Karin is a loveable character who at first sight doesn't have much support from her family, but once you take a closer look you can see that her family feels slightly overwhelmed with her "abnormalities" and try to help her as much as possible. She also makes friends at school, which complicates her life further.

This is one hilarious manga series about vampires with some serious twists...

Rating: 4.5/5
