View Full Version : Complete [Josei] Midnight Secretary by Ohmi Tomu
April 02, 2008, 04:34 AM
Do you like smutty Shoujo?
Do you like Vampires Bishies?
You will LOVE Midnight Secretary!!! :wtf
Kaya thought she had found the perfect job when she became the private secretary of Kyouhei Touma - the director of a tableware company of the same name. Kyouhei is a capable director, but his arrogance and sluttish behavior are almost legendary. Kaya is doing her best to prove that she is capable in her work, but one night, by accident, she discovers his secret… of him being a vampire!
This manga has everything a fangirl wishes for. You shouldn't miss is it out.
Now, let's start drooling over Touma in this thread :luv

I started it, once. Needless to say, I couldn't get past 3 chapters. The story was totally uninteresting and childish. However, the art was not bad.

That's because it's a certain genre of Shoujo which focuses on showing hot scenes rather then on plot :p
I'm surprised that a guy is checking such series out. Personally I would compare them to those inexpensive romance&passion novels which are only read by housewives :XD

Read this on onemanga and I have to agree with the dudes there: This series is an oddly addicting guilty pleasure...and the chick is cute
...goes to read more Hellsing to atone.

kehehe ch 12 is out.
This is really one of the interesting smutty shoujo!
I agree enini, it's one of my fantasies, kyaaaa! bite me. :oh

well, well and i thoght there wasn't any topic with midnight secretary and kyouhei *love* haha this manga is more for smut-romance-supernatural lovers than actin-horror-supernatural lovers. well exept me. i'm both, lucky me. midnight secretary is a great manga with great story as well art

O-M-Gee. I just read the latest chapter. It was the best chapter yet! I felt that the art started to improve. But more importantly, the panels had such impact! Ohmi Tomu nailed it this time.
I liked how it was clearly shown how they pained not to see each other for so long. I liked the contrast when they also tried to hide their longing for each other. Like when Kaya started calling the director selfish and other names, but ended up holding the phone tight. haha. That was brilliant. And when she saw the director after all this time and she tried to compose herself but she couldn't look at him without crying. That was drawn so well.
What keeps it interesting is how the story will turn out. One of the exciting parts of the story is how their relationship is kept in secret. As the chapters developed, another scheme surfaced, which was that they were kept apart and so had only stolen moments in the night. And these made the story so juicy. When the director "asks" (more like, demands) that Kaya move in with him... what does Ohmi Tomu have up her sleeve? For sure she has to keep the mystery and thrill of secrecy. But by moving in together, that could substantially affect that hooking point.
So what do you guys think?

Just read the chapter 19.
I can't wait!!!
Who knows where I can find the raws?
Sometimes Kyouhei needs a slap! A hard one!!!!
August 03, 2008, 01:26 AM
But I'm actually forgiving of Kyouhei right now. :p It's because I'm interested to see the development with this new vampire, and the three other stock holders (or managers? wut?) that are interested in Kaya.
Seems like we're still in for a long ride, ne?
Dear Laila, welcome to MH, btw! :confetti
and I can't answer your question about the raws. I thought this manga was quite new so that the scans were pretty much close to the raws?
August 16, 2008, 02:36 AM
thank you, baboysai!
But the latest chappie that we just read..ch20 maybe a start of tragedy.
I mean there might be sad teary scene where the vampiress already make an apperance.
Huh~ And she dare say to Kaya, that if Kaya ever has a baby with Kyouhei, she and Kyouhei will take care of it.
WTF?! What does she think she is...?! :mad
August 16, 2008, 12:49 PM
well, she thinks like any other vampire. They're a haughty race. -_-; Except for Kyouhei's mom. Now that I think about it, I like Kyouhei's mom. She believes that love conquers all. :noworry
And considering that this is josei (is it?), or well, more mature, I am hoping Kaya will think about deserving more. Because in reality, when thrust into a relationship like this, you can't keep being satisfied to be called "a good secretary, but still, just a secretary". She'll have to demand later that she is more than just a secretary. Right?
September 13, 2008, 12:56 AM
Ah. After reading the ch.21...yep, baboysai. She starts demanding. Even though she doesn't say it out loud...but it's all there in her heads.
I guess being female is like that. It's not selfish coz after all, Kyouhei already has her body (and her blood to boot!).
But I like last part of ch.21... Kyouhei also blurted his demand well... And I'm quite afraid if he starts to walk away a.k.a distance himself from Kaya after that. Maybe he will think that his pride has suffered a major embarrassment. (T^T)
ch.22 - Kaya...way to go!
But why I have a feeling that the situation will get worse...?!
September 13, 2008, 06:14 AM
Jupp, ch 22 is out... I just saw ^^
Now, I just need the time to read it. Damn final thesis :scry
September 16, 2008, 12:34 PM
enini, i was thinking, after reading the last chapter, was that the last chapter? :o
September 16, 2008, 01:02 PM
No, the manga is still ongoing and Aerandria still working on it, why?
Volume 05 Chapter 023 - Being Edited
Volume 05 Chapter 024 - Being Edited
Volume 05 Chapter 025 - Being Edited
Volume 05 Extra - Being Sourced
Volume 06 Chapter 026 - Being Scanned
September 16, 2008, 01:42 PM
yeah okay. :p I just thought there was no element of cliffie or anything for chapter 22, and I was wondering if that was really the end.
September 16, 2008, 01:44 PM
Hm, maybe just a hanger. I still haven't read it, any smut is strictly forbidden till after my finals :scry
October 08, 2008, 09:46 PM
ZOMG i just read the latest chapter (23) and I ultimately love this josei!!
like, every woman can relate, how kaya can be so distracted and "selfish" and stuff... :wtf That was great.
October 12, 2008, 06:08 AM
I absolutely love this manga. It was very sexy. The script is getting better and hotter. Whenever Kaya & Kyouhei are interacting it is so exciting and sexy. I am a big fan of this manga and have read it five times atleast..upto chapter 23.
I loved the humour and jealousy introduced through tamasu. But most of all this is a sexy, arousing manga read:)
The last chapter is a breakthrough in itself. I hope the manga continues for a while and continues to focus on kaya and kyohei growing and evolving through different situations, yet their love becoming clearer and stronger and bolder (sexy!!).
Since I havnt read many Josie manga, I have a question. I am just wondering is Josei manga usually have happy endings??
Because I just know that I really want to see them together, finding inner peace within each other and their love and being together. Thank You Ohmi for writing such a wonderfully romantic and sexy manga. And i hope you please give it a happy ending.
October 12, 2008, 06:40 AM
Hm, no. You can't generalize whether Josei tends to have happy or sad endings. I've seen both.
(Serious) Josei is more mature than Shoujo and therefor you could expect more mature/realistic endings but still - it's a media for women and those like romantic stuff. Therefor I would say that happy endings are more dominant compared to (stereotypical) Seinen manga where the guys prefer to kill most characters towards the end. But e.g. Vampire Girl is a Josei manga with a very debatable end >.>
However, Midnight Secretary runs in Petit Comic which is well-known for it's carefree erotic comedy series (and they tend to end happily <3). If you haven't read many Josei so far but like MS, you may want to check out the manga by Yoshihara Yuki (http://www.mangaupdates.com/authors.html?id=90) which is also a longtime mangaka publishing in Petit Comics. She writes very funny erotic series similar to MS and the complete scanlated ones I've read so far have all a satisfying end. I recommend to start with Itadakimasu (4 vols) or Haa Haa (3 vols), both complete scanlated :amuse
October 31, 2008, 01:54 AM
Thanls eni. That was very helpful. Are yoou enjoying Midnight secretary as well?
Eni i was reading Midnight Secretary on onemanga. Where can i read haa haa and Itadakimasu?
November 01, 2008, 02:39 PM
For all your manga needs (or almost all of them) www.mangatraders.com
You download the manga there. I don't think you can find Haa Haa and Itadakimasu to read online, so it's a good idea to just download them from mangatraders.
November 24, 2008, 06:01 AM
sorry if im off the thread. but anyone gotten any ideas where i can find raws/ chinese scanlated versions of this manga?
Big thanks in advance

:o @ being banished from the clan.
January 25, 2009, 12:46 PM
yeah but at this point, it seems like Kyouhei could care less?
(i had really hoped Kaya would get pregnant though :darn)
April 13, 2009, 08:18 AM
This is one of my first mangas and the reason I got addicted to mangas. Volume 7 is the last volume of this manga. I am very disappointed to learn that it is finished. It will be very hard to find another manga like this. There are not many josei manga, with the right combination of story, character strength and development and a sexy bishie and smut content.
I do think it had the potential to go on longer. In any case, I will highly recommend this manga to everybody.
April 13, 2009, 10:53 AM
really? like, chapter 32 is the end?? i don't quite get it... -_-
April 13, 2009, 02:51 PM
No chapter 32 is the 2nd chapter in volume 7. Its just that I learnt that volume 7 is the last volume of the series. I guess that means there are about 3 more chapters left.
Anyway comparing this series with the other two series of Ohmi Tomu like Kindan no Koi wo Shiyou and Bariaro my Honey, Midnight Secretary is far superior in terms of the intensity of the drama as well as the romance, and the attention to character detail.
I hope that the next series she write is consistent with Midnight Secretary :)
April 17, 2009, 03:57 AM
I just read everything up to chapter 32. Kyouhei is such a jerk but I love that he does it to infuriate Kaya to the point where she forgets that she's his secretary. I also love love LOVE the line "Love replaces sleep in the moonlit night." I fall into fits of giggles every time I read it. Wonderful!
April 27, 2009, 11:44 PM
wow. i just read ch33. in the end I thought, awww. I'm so excited, but then ch34 is the last chapter EVER?
there better be a sequel. Hmm.. I think most likely yes, there will be a sequel because the mangaka described the baby to be so.. ^^ what do you guys think?
April 28, 2009, 01:35 AM
Every volume had 5 chapters up till now, so I would expect the last one to have 5 as well. The status as Aerandria's page is "Volume 07 Chapter 034 - Not yet published" and I haven't read the announcement regarding the end. Just 'Volume 7' can mean a lot, even a special chapter more. So let's just wait and see ^^:
Hm, I don't need a sequel of this but I can see her doing one. It's enjoyable for the really nice smut and I love vampire stories but the story isn't all that great and I'm not a huge fan of the drawing style either. The manga recycles so many cliches that I'm rather happy to see it ending now before it's dragging too long.
April 28, 2009, 02:20 AM
Well it's well and good for Kaya and the President's story to end, enini.
But I'm interested in their offspring.
April 28, 2009, 02:55 AM
That would be a spin-off rather than a sequel :D
Nah, but... don't really look forward to it other than having more smutty stuff with new characters to read, which is never bad :XD Her manga all follow the same pattern with different fantasy characters and her scenarios let me roll my eyes all too often. It's not bad, I like my cliche-drowned stereotypes but it just gets boring after a while. To be honest, I was very into shoujo/josei smut till last year but totally lost the motivation to look for more seeing how bad the actual story is in most of them ^^;
April 28, 2009, 11:46 PM
I thought this manga started out really well and continued to peak but after Kaya left her other job and started working solely for the newly founded company of Kyohei, I felt like the mangaka either ran out of ideas or wanted to finished this quickly.
I could have imagined the story going on for much more with the following plotlines:
- Kaya vs Marika
- The Vampire clan's interference and their leader's bullying
- The pregnancy
It ended all too soon for me. This manga seduced me into reading more mangas, so this is a special manga to me:)
May 14, 2009, 09:03 PM
I am adding 3 volumes raw, I hope you enjoy. I will be looking for the others.;)
Volume 5 HQ RAW
June 30, 2009, 10:06 AM
I usually don't like smut but something about Midnight Secretary drew me to the series. :s I just read the last chapter recently and am so glad it they made their ending happy! =D
I think most likely yes, there will be a sequel because the mangaka described the baby to be so.. ^^ what do you guys think?
I think there will be...They went on and on about how powerful the child was so I wouldn't be suprised if the sequel was based on it!
June 30, 2009, 05:23 PM
That or Midnight Butler :P But yeah I don't normally like this type of Manga but something about them the past week or two has drew me in and hope the Mangaka does make a sequel as I enjoyed reading this and i'm pretty happy where it ended it could have went a bit longer but yeah atleast it ended on a happy note :P
September 14, 2011, 09:02 AM
I admit that I was first attracted to this series because of the vampires. XD Personally I think it is an interesting series; the way the plot and characters are developed is nice. I especially like how Kaya could open herself and not be as perfect as before, while on the other side Kyouhei grew up to be someone with more pride than ever. There is this strong message that no matter who you are, as long as you do everything in your very best you are still you.
The artwork might not be exceptional, but pretty good nevertheless. I think the mangaka draws Kaya pretty beautiful, but sometimes I found the point of view towards Kyouhei is strange that he looks weird in my eyes. Maybe his eyes is too small or something like that. XD
A sequel, or at least a side story, about their child would be awesome. I'm curious to see what it actually means to have an exceptional power for the vampires. A very strong mind control power? A very beautiful appearance? Or is it something else? We don't see action scenes here so I'm not sure if it's related to physical power. :3
Anyway, this is still a fun series to read and enjoy. ^__^
