I hope they'll be sticking around for the next few novels! At first he appears to be suave and charming, but his nefarious plot is soon discovered when he kidnaps Misao and Taro, and I discovered just how sick he really is. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this sequel. It was as humorous as the first Black Bird volume and even more endearing. Misao and Kyo make the cutest couple. The storyline plays out like a common shojo manga, only the themes are a little unique. This manga is definitely to-read though I must say, not something you would recommend to lower-age groups, since it contains sexual themes.

After reading the reviews for the previous volume, I did start to notice how annoyingly demanding Kyo is, and how confident he feels in using Misao's body in a lewd way despite the fact that she might not be ready for that level of affection yet.

Maybe his personality is like that, and maybe that quality of horniness is acceptable for a demon? But this just sounds like I'm making obscure excuses I don't put him to the standard of what love should look like in the 21st century, but in my eyes Kyo and Misao have a different kind of love that still holds its cuteness for me.

I love the plot line. And I love all of the characters that make up this manga. There's a lot of people who've said that Hime-sama, the main characte This review will be the same for all of them-- excluding book seventeen and eighteen-- as I'm going to briefly review books I've wanted to read this manga for quite some time, and once I started reading it like a few weeks ago. There's a lot of people who've said that Hime-sama, the main character in this series, isn't independent, but that she's insufficient and relies on Kyou-sama, which is why this manga isn't good enough to read.
Well, okay for one, that's all controversial. And secondly, I don't like my handfuls of dependent girls that can't do anything, in the other genres of books that I read, one example of one of those girls would be, classically, Anastasia Steele from Fifty Shades of Grey. Anyways, and since I know what an insufficient girl looks like, I'd just like to get it clear that Himi-sama or Misao-san is not one of them.
Misao-san wants to be with Kyou so strongly and she wants to be a part of Kyou's life so much because. Not because she's dependent on him. She lived the majority of her life without him. And she didn't die. And then for the things that she actually is depend on Kyou for? Like the youkai coming after her because she is the senka?
Now that. You actually can't blame Misao for being dependent on Kyou for that because Misao, as a human, can't do anything about that. Misao differs from girls like Anastasia Steele because as you advance in the stories you blatantly see that Misao wants to help Kyou and the family she has acquired through being the senka and being protected by the great eight.
She doesn't want to just sit by and watch people fight her battles. She's strong and independent enough to identify that that's not what she wants and that if she can help in any sort of way- she'll do it. Beyond that issue- This anime has a really great romantic factor in it. Beyond the artwork which I absolutely adore honestly, it's really hard for me to get into an anime or a manga if the artwork is half-assed and illogical like Kyou worked hard for ten years, moving past his older brother, just so he could become the head of the family and he could marry and protect Misao and not let her marry his brother Shou, who she'd been arranged for initially, and whom seemed as if he had many dark secrets of his own.
And Misao who only wants to make Kyou happy and is happiest around him, even though that means she'd have to give up her friends and her family who relentlessly stay by her side. I just remember smiling so much in response to Misao and Kyou because they really are just a sweet couple- the couple that you have hope for in all the shitty relationships that take place nowadays. And then, as a whole, the manga's premise is very interesting as it creates a new and interesting world of clans and dark spirits sharing the world among humans.
Jan 31, Alois Trancy's rated it did not like it Shelves: josei-manga , wtf-books. I can't believe my eyes.
The Sho-san was unnecessary and so was the kissing of the triplets. That situation with When I read this it was back in it was advertise everywhere I looked so I was like " maybe i should try this" it was not worth its salt. It was my first josei manga I think so I did not know what to expect. I got to volume 3 and i did not return till in the summer to start it reading again and only because of 1- I heard it was not like that past volume 6 which was a lie of co I can't believe my eyes. I got to volume 3 and i did not return till in the summer to start it reading again and only because of 1- I heard it was not like that past volume 6 which was a lie of course 2- characters in traditional clothes 3 - the artist really good at drawing flowers 4 lastly i hate not finishing things.
I ruined my eyes as a result. People tell me I don't read any "girly" and asks me why this is why!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now that Misao know she is hunted by demons and that her blood is wanted by them all she had to admit that Kyo and his followers are her only chance of survival in a world that is thrusting for her blood.
But this time his older brother Sho arrives and with him more questions and fears strike Misao. She knows she is very attracted to Kyo, but she isn't sure if he feels the same or that what her blood promises his Tengu family is his only interest?

Apr 14, Sarah Black rated it it was amazing Shelves: books-read-in Review coming soon Dec 02, Nancy Foster rated it really liked it. I have continued reading this fun shojo romance series with a supernatural twist and it continues to remain lighthearted and fun. Misao continues to have personal doubts whether she hates or loves her mysterious and very hunky neighbor Kyou. She knows he is a Tengu, head of a crow demon family who wants to marry her.

But does he really love her, or all of the things he did to keep her safe so far is all part of a maquiavellian plan to trick her into marriage. Things get more fun when after Misao i I have continued reading this fun shojo romance series with a supernatural twist and it continues to remain lighthearted and fun.
Sweet little Taro who was presented in the first volume is one of them. With the exception for Taro's two fraternal twin brothers, all of them are hunky young men! Misao can't choose between feeling worried, flattered, or horny by so much hotness. Kyou ordered his men to always keep a close eye on her because it seems like she always gets into trouble for no reason whatsoever. Yeah, Kyou is a bit paranoid. Misao becomes attached to the retainers very quickly, and doesn't mind it when one of them shows up in front of her school to accompany her home.
Black Bird, Volume 8 - Kanoko Sakurakouji | Black Bird | Bird graphic, Black, Birds
The only problem is that the 8th and final retainer hasn't appeared yet, and Kyou doesn't seem all that happy when Sohou makes his grand appearance. He knows that Sohou is up to trouble, and Misao's life could be at risk. The author continues to draw beautifully, and with a simple crisp style, my only two complaints is that dialogue bubbles continue to be skipped around, making some of the reading choppy, and the fact that while Misao continues to be a weakling damsel-in-distress, Kyou almost seems like a posessive control freak.
Yeah, this manga might anger some feminists. But I think that if you try to keep your mind open and simply enjoy the scenes where Kyou and Misao kiss each other, those little squirms will not be an impediment towards enjoying this fun story.

Did Japan get the books before us??
I, for one, really like this manga. This book is intresting to me bacause it actually satifies me. Hi Ashley. I even thought that perhaps it would be Kyo who would learn from Misao to be a worthy romantic partner. Unfortunately, for me, violent, controlling partners are not actually romantic, and that is what Kyo is at this point in the story. It is a lot better than most. It is to my taste as far as the distinct characters go and is a lot darker than most shoujo manga that I have read but that is what I love about it. I also agree with Robert below.
He was abusing his seductive power, but he is a character completely in love yet never knew how to show it. Uh, I never once mentioned Twilight in my review or in comments. He loves her blood, but does her love her?! R to L Japanese Style. Kyo, the head of the Tengu demon clan, is Misao's only chance for survival. But even though she has sweet memories of him as a childhood friend, she has trouble reconciling them with the man he has become.
Despite the strange attraction, can she trust her life, let alone her heart, to a man who only cares about the promise of her blood? 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 magic realms.
She just wants to have a normal high school life and maybe get a boyfriend. But she is the bride of demon prophecy, and her blood grants incredible powers, her flesh immortality. Now the demon realm is fighting over the right to her hand…or her life! Kanoko Sakurakoji was born in downtown Tokyo, and her hobbies include reading, watching plays, traveling and shopping.
