General Overview: [Blurb] In the Vampire Mercenary Specialized School, "1000 Years Academy," the most unvampire-like vampire at the academy, Aru, and the human transfer student, Kei, meet by chance. But what they didn't know was that it was a fate the world depended on.
Category Ratings: (1-10 scale)
Art: 7 The art is clean and easy to follow. Mostly direct in its use of camera angles but this does not distract the reader.
Plot: 7 The story is well paced throughout the six chapters and the conclusion is hinted at rather than shown. The plot is simple and steady with touches of humour.
Characters: 5 There is nothing particularly outstanding about the characters and they are pretty generic and, naturally, pretty to look at being vampires. The characters fall into their predetermined roles nicely.
Theme: 6 Fighting for your beliefs and friendships; protecting those you love and care for.
Originality: 6 The concept of undead against undead is not new but vampires against vampires is less common than vampires against werewolves.
Overall: 7 An entertaining afternoon read for fans of pretty vampires.
