So today I have a manga I’ve read a couple times before, and one I’ve owned for a couple of years. I had bought volumes one and two and had to wait ages before volumes three and four were released (I have yet to buy those unfortunately).
Millennium Snow is a four volume vampire and werewolf manga by Bisco Hatori, the creator of the much loved and known Ouran High School Host Club.
The story starts off by introducing the female protagonist, Chiyuki who has been constantly in and out of the hospital since she was born because she has a weak heart. Chiyuki also mentions that on the day of her birth her death had already been decided – it was unlikely that she’d live past the age of fifteen.
Now, seventeen, Chiyuki’s life is confined to the hospital, however, it’s there that she meets a boy in black named Toya. A vampire, he claims, and Chiyuki can’t help but find him strange. After all, what kind of vampire dislikes blood?
Before I start complaining, I’d like to say that this story isn’t bad. I don’t think I would have read it more than once if I thought it was, however, like most things, I do have quite a few complaints.
First up is the art. The style is actually nice and it’s something I would definitely read. Considering that art can make or break my choice in picking up a series, this is a good sign! However, the anatomy just didn’t look correct a lot of the times. There would be scenes were heads and shoulders just didn’t make sense and where the characters just became extremely elongated. Even in the cover picture you can see this. I mean, that tiny head for such a long body just doesn’t make sense…
