Blood+, Volume 1 Blood+, Volume 1 by Asuka Katsura

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Blood + is another manga series that started as a series of novels. It was a popular Anime Series and Feature Film. After watching the film I looked forward to the manga series.

"The amnesiac Saya lives as a seemingly normal high school student with her adoptive family in Okinawa Japan.Horrible nightmares are the only hints at the violent life she once led,... A viscious attack by the Chiropterans- powerful shape-changing creatures who crave blood, awaken her past as a fearful warrior" Cover Blurb

THis manga is in the traditionalleft to right format. Young Saya lives with her adopted step brothers and parents. She has no memory of the last year of her life but is consumed by increasingly violent nightmares. She meets a mysterious musician named Hagi whose haunting music awakens memories in her heart. Her step brother Kai is witness to her terrible transformation into the fearsome warrior of her past. Besides a gifted swordswoman Saya's blood is toxic to the Chiropterans. She is the key in preventing them from destroying the human race.

I love this series! it deftly combines Horror,Mystery and a very interesting Love triangle with Saya, Hagi and Kai whose love for her is more than brotherly.

I highly suggest this series for fans of paranormal and vampire fiction. It has elements of Vampire Diaries, Twilight and other dark paranormal books. Saya is both strong and vulnerable their are many scenes where she balances her emotion pain with her strengh and determination to protect her family.
