Enter Misaki, perhaps the most innocent and most sincere young lady there ever was. It's almost inconceivable that she could be a vampire. And with her powers as a vampire, she could easily entice any human to do her biding...but she chooses not to. Especially when it comes to Juroe, a young author who has a deep running past with vampires.

I made a recommendation to my school library to purchase this book, and I noticed it was on the shelf of manga today, so I instantly checked the first two books out. I absolutely LOVE it. It's about this little vampire girl named Misaki who lives with Kuroe, a lonely, but kind, attractive man who's a writer and a detective. Their relationship is very interesting. Misaki obviously has feelings for Kuroe, who takes care of her, but we're not so sure about Kuroe. Even though they apparently have a huge age difference between them, the artist somehow makes their relationship seem very sweet and not so creepy pedophile-like. In this series, there's lots of mystery episodes, with all these unexpected twists and turns, so it just sucks you into the story because you want to know what's going to happen.
The series is rated 13+, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who's goes queasy at blood. I would recommend it to anyone who likes mysteries and thrillers, and enjoys similar manga series such as Vampire Knight, Godchild, The Tarot Cafe, and Vampire Hunter D (which is also a series of novels).
Besides that, it's just a good story and great drawings as well.
Even during a time awash in vampire novels, the Blood Alone series distinguishes itself. With clean, deceptively simple art, complex characters and a mysterious plot, Blood draws the reader into a world of quiet menace tinged with loss and longing. The story is about a somewhat naïve vampire girl, Misaki, and Kuroe, a young man who lost his sister to vampires. Misaki is sweet and exasperating in turn, and strikes a protective, brotherly chord in the novelist and part time investigator Kuroe. There are scenes of action and violence, but the focus of the series is on the lasting hurt and psychological damage of vampirism.
The second book covers 8 chapters, or episodes, and reveals more of the plot and background of the main characters. The book moves almost leisurely at first, exploring the strange world of vampire society, but suddenly accelerates to an emotionally shattering climax. Infinity Studios is to be commended for high production values, including a colored sleeve and crisp printing on quality paper. Blood Alone is a series for readers interested more in emotional resonance than bloody action. Volume 2 earns my highest rating for a tale of melancholy sadness that lingers long after reading.
