Manga Review: Midnight Secretary, Volume 7, by Tomu Ohmi

Rating (Out of 5): ~3.5
Publisher: Shojo Beat (VIZ Media)
Release Date: September 2014
Volumes: 7
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 6.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Kaya Satozuka prides herself on being an excellent secretary and a consummate professional, so she doesn’t even bat an eye when she’s reassigned to the office of her company’s difficult director, Kyohei Touma. He’s as prickly—and hot—as rumors paint him, but Kaya is unfazed…until she discovers that he’s a vampire!!

Kyohei has been banished from his clan because he refuses to renounce his love for Kaya. But a lone vampire is a dangerous thing to be, and Kyohei finds himself cut off from the vampires' power and protection. He doesn't even have access to blood substitutes anymore! Kaya wants to support him through this crisis, but arranging "dinner dates" for him again might be more than her heart can take!


I am happy that this series is over, but I’m also satisfied with the ending.
It left me feeling like there could be more story to tell, but I’m overall satisfied with how everything wrapped up. It was a nice conclusion for Kaya and Kyohei, if a little showdown impending with the vampire community, I believe that they can handle it.
I enjoyed that Kaya stayed his secretary, and took her job seriously, as well as being good at it. But it also got a little annoying—like, she can be his secretary at work but also his wife/girlfriend/whatever outside of work. That’s okay, too. 
Overall, I’m happy with this series. It was good throughout, and the ending was very nice. I also enjoyed the extra chapter focusing on Marika. I’m liking her other series, Spell of Desire, although I hope it picks up more. There just seems to be something missing in Ohmi’s series to really grab me.
