Manga Review: He's My Only Vampire, Volume 3, by Aya Shouoto

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Yen Press
Release Date: June 2015
Volumes: 10
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 2. 4.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Upon Eve's invitation, Aki agrees to attend the Soiree on his own. However, Kana and Jin aren't far behind, trailing him in secret. Then, at the climax of the blood-drenched ceremonies, Kana's "Awakening" begins at last!


This series is definitely taking a darker turn than her others, and more than I expected.
We meet Aki’s fiancé, and then Aki goes to a vampire ball. Aki leaves Kana and Jin behind, for good reason, but they mess that up. The vampires are trying to work behind Aki’s back. He handles it rather well, in really the only way he can. And then we get another cliffhanger.
I like Aki and Kana’s relationship. I’m intrigued to find more out about their past. I like how serious their thrall/vampire relationship is turning out to be, and intrigued to find out how much darker the series gets with it. This volume was violent, and I liked that. The cliffhanger has me interested, but only mildly. We’ll see what happens with this new threat.
This seems like a much more mature series than Shouoto’s other two, and I like it. The artwork is harder, mature and more intricate. It fits the themes and tone, which I’m impressed by.
The next volume is always on my list.

  2. Hi! I know these is gonna sound a little odd, but my name is Romi, and I'm from an Spanish scanlation, and I don't know if you know, but Junketsu + Kareshi (He's my only vampire) hasn't been licensed in spanish, so we are currently working on it to bring it to spanish, but we are missing the translation of the extra pages of volume 1, 2 and 3, it'll be the last page, the one that have like a little comic on it. Would it be too much to ask if you can take a photo of those and send them to me, I'd not upload them anywhere, will just use them to translate into spanish, I beg your help, please help us u.u
