2 stars smaller

My Thoughts: I can’t stand that whole trend in manga and anime that someone can do also anything to someone else and they still can “fall in love.” This manga was not of the rape kind, but it still is annoying at so many levels. She seems completely helpless, even thought she acts like she is brave. The story line was predicable and not enjoyable. I will not be reading the last two volumes.

My Thoughts: This is the farthest I have ever read in this series from my previous attempts. Let me say again, that I LOVE this series, and I have no idea why it took this long to read it (besides the fact that it not fully officially translated in English).

I am still loving it. There is so much more revealed in this volume. It is so exciting! I am not as confused because of all the stuff coming to light. I am upset with what is going on, but the author still is able to make me laugh at times.

Blurb: Together again at last after their excursion into Italy, it’s going to be a hot and heavy reunion for Charley and Rayflo. And apparently a short-lived one.

My Thoughts: I really liked this volume. I feel I got a better understanding. There was more revealed. The nice scene from the end of the last volume carried over from the previous one. Their feelings for each other seemed to be confirmed in this volume.

Blurb: Charley, a cyborg vampire who does the Vatican’s dirty work, is the thrall of the local vampire playboy Johnny Rayflo. As the two fight crime-and each other-hilarity, violence and sacrilege ensue!

4 stars

My Thoughts: So, I had to re-read from the beginning (again … for the like the 3rd time) because it has been a year since my last try. I am not sure what my issues was last year because I LOVE this series. I am liking even more this time around.

I am getting a feel of the bigger picture this, now that I am paying attention. I am still kind of confused on some things. There are bunch of lovely scenes in this volume, but some are a little graphic. There are snippets of the past but never really explains, which I love. I also really liked the ending of this volume.
