The art is lovely... unfortunately, the characters are shit (especially Maria) and the plot fell apart within a few chapters. I hate to say this, but Samamiya-sensei should stick to just illustrating manga. Her plots are consistently shallow and nonsensical. That said, it's a better idea to just spend five minutes clicking through this manga and appreciating the art then trying to spend over an hour reading the thing.

kindle book is out on Amazon for 4.49$ if you have a kindle book just hope they don't take long like yen press always do

Viz licensed this and has it in English tho....

Well it's the readers who are to blame for this entirely. Because they're freaking lazy, most of them go to mangafox/mangahere etc (all a gigantic ad-revenue company by the same Chinese owner) and read/upload there.

 

Scanlation groups spend their time and money on the work, so it's not alright that others steal their work, most often even remove credits and then make money of it. Sometimes they even try HACKING into the intern-for-team-members-only-forums of scanlation groups because they want the release faster so greedy are they.

 

It's seriously making me mad because this is simply a result of people being lazy f*cks.In the end the mangas often either become scanlated for a private group only, so others would never even see it or groups stop because they become discouraged. Cleaning and redrawing alone can take up to 6 hours for one chapter depending on the raw and design itself.Translating can take several DAYS. And so on. So I can only repeat myself: STOP FREQUENTING SITES LIKE MANGAFOX.

 

Groups are NOT going forum-only because they are trying to force people into buying the mangas. But have you ever thought about that us scanlators also need to pay for raws, server costs, stuff like Dropbox etc? So if we try to at least get a tiny percentage of our outcome back by getting ad-revenue than I think this is only fair. What have YOU personally done so far for the scanlation scene? Are you donating money for raws? If you don't have money to give, do you make sure to visit the group's site regularily w/o ad-blocker to at least help them raise some money?

 

Also the way mangafox etc are making profit out of it is the reason why they go suing people who release translations. So it's a double fail for those who actually want to read manga for free.

 

 

Publishers would be much less likely to press charges against people sharing stuff and scanlating, if 1) people would actually still buy some volumes sometimes at all and 2) if 3-rd parties did not make millions in profits out of it without paying anything for getting it by stealing and not giving back after having earned ad-revenues.So your "Who cares?!" attitude is pretty misguided and stupid. If you like the manga, you can at least be honest enough to buy, let's say, 1 out of 5 volumes. It's not much but at least it's giving back something.

 

You all like to forget that there are actually people depending on earning a living with this on the publishing side and people spending lots of time and money on the scanlation side as well.  Stop whining about you not being able to be 100% lazy and start thinking about what you can do for those two groups, the publishers and the scanlators. Show some fairness and human decency for f*ck's sake people!

UGgggghhh can someone else start scanlating this? There's an influx of groups doing this" tehehe join our forums" crap, and I wonder why they even bother scanlating at that point anymore.

like Titania scans they used this crisis to get more traffic all that bla bla about support the official release is just for this crap There is no such thing as force the people to support we will buy it whenever we feel like it and what about those who cant cbb59254bee1f158812f9cbd175e8efb43fe593d

Whaaaaat, that did not go as expected!

YES ANOTHER UPDATE!!!

A week late, but thank you for the update. I'm really happy to see this manga active again.

i'm so hooked into this, i can't wait for the next chapter to come out. i love how the plot is not your typical cliche vampire story,like in every chapter leaves a deep and meaningful impression. i can't exaggerate how much i'm in love with the art of this manga though!! ;^;

A release yesterday and today in my Viz subscription... VIZ HAS LICENSED BLOODY MARY AND VOL 1 IS READY TO PRE ORDER ON AMAZON AND IS DUE DECEMBER! Today is a good day.

Holy cow an update. Thanks so much! @_@

monoestrelei essa bosta

who names their son mary or maria? seriously how much did you hate your child?


di Maria is his family name. Ichirou is his given name ^^ As for Mary, there's a theory it's actually came from Egypt name mry that means beloved. Awkward still yes, it's a beautiful name tho.

Omg an update! Thanks so much!! @_@!!

This is solid gold!!! Speaking metaphorically... But it's just amazing, the names arn't a problem at all, the art is fantastic, and my grammar has just dropped out the window!

dear god. I actually like this. And the style is beautiful? Insta-followed.

(ah btw, its quite a few country's with guys with girls names and girls with boys names, that's considered normal to them. stuff like this don't faze me. xD)

Isn't Mary/Maria a girl name? I mean,in my country (and as far as I know even in others) it is. 

who names their son mary or maria? seriously how much did you hate your child?

Their names are distracting, but the plot is promising.
