Meh... my favorite manga <3

Meh. The last arc was definitely the best, but kyou ticked me off too much for me to fully enjoy it. Idk if it's just me, but

Spoiler


Ok sorry, now I'm done. I'm just really, REALLY salty. Pretty good though. Classic shoujo
Que mangá lindo!!!!!! Amei muito <3 obrigada pela tradução. :-)

love the ending. >_<

i would not mind if there was a sequel to show sou life story

that would be interesting in my opinion :)

definitely an award winning title <3

Thanks for all the work Transcendence.

What a lovely ending...

New Series? (I need more manga to read)

Give me one!

ah, that's a lovely ending

why cant i stop reading this crap

all this drama, and yet no one every thought about the possibility of the woman in the past dying due to the primitive medicine of the day?

 

Women died in childbirth all the time........

Its a good sign that Misao could talk to their baby. I get the feeling that the answer rests in her body.

I've read the ending in Barnes & Nobles~ Thanks for the scanlations! Nice to see another manga be close to be put to rest ;)

You know, i really really really really really (x10000) want her to live somehow, but I can't help but get the feeling its gonna be a bittersweet ending, or just a straight out sad depressing ending.
I hope the ending will be like Hana to Akuma!
Thanks for the two new chapters!!! You guys are the best! 

I think I have too many follows... 709 had to unfollow one 

Spoiler

I love this manga >_< I want more

the characters are developed really well

misao is sweet but even she is scared to die but wants to find a way to save her baby too

plus I loved how kyou is not like every other guy

He just wanted to be the head in order to be with Misao.

loved how he was actually willing to inhumanely kill his own baby

shows realism. the power of love is not always good -_-

A good read BUT:

Spoiler

 

Anyway, it still remains one of my guilty pleasures!

You probably need to look for slice-of-life manga for older audiences that are mainly concerned with the troubles of real life rather than a "shoujo" manga of that of a girl in a super-natural situation.

Thank you so much for uploading this manga. I will patiently wait for the translated chapters until the end. :( I would really like to know what happened and understand what they are saying. :D I spoiled myself though. I browsed the chapters (it's in Spanish!). I will definitely listen to my Spanish teacher now. haha.

This manga is amazing! I enjoyed reading it. Misao's character could become annoying, but my attention wil be always caught by Kyou's love/obsession for her. The 8 retainers are also fun. The comedy parts always makes me smile and laugh so hard. The story behind the characters are touching...the feelings are overwhelming. The tengus reminds me a bit of Love Monster. 
 
The part about Misao

All in all I really like this manga. I will definitely reread it again.

"That's an insult. Twilight is just like every other america teen novel - girl problems + vampires/werewolves, just like Beautiful Creatures and Mortal Instruments. Branch from the same tree."
 
no, I mean as in the irresistible special girl trope, the dangerous demon-eating monster that loves her and has to hold himself back with oh-so much control, the fact that everyone else wishes to kill her/keep her for her special powers, and finally that her pregnancy as a whole is the same as bella's (the child is dangerous and will kill her etc.)

 

Let's just put it this way, Black Bird is what Twilight would look like if it were done better and with a Japanese setting and mythology. But if you want something like Twilight and Vampire Diaries in terms of teenage school romance then Orange Marmalade is what to look for but it lacks serious action since its purely a slice-of-life love-comedy mixed in with racial discrimination and drama, however, its case its the vampires that have the short end of the stick, not humans, so its pretty nice and frankly more realistic setting where the entire public knows of the existence of vampires even though they don't really know how to tell at first glance.

 17 and 18 is out in store alrdy..I have seen both of them in one of the B&N I go to. As expect, It was an happy ending ~

Really?? 18 is pre-order in B&N. Well I'm going to visit a friend for Thanksgiving - I hope I find them in a B&N near her place!

It's already complete??

Can't find v17 and v18 in the Barnes & Nobles nearby -.- 16 was the last I found.

wow..... but I expect nothing else from the ending ~

It is predictable~~

Transcendence Scans needs to catch up.

Spanish scan already finish the series already x'D

Transcendence is not known for their speed - slow and steady~

 

 

does no one else see rising number of similarities between this manga and Twilight? I'm not saying that Twilight is better, but they have many of the same plot twists, characters, etc.
