4.0 out of 5 stars Unique Vampire Manga, 26 April 2014
This review is from: UQ Holder 1 (Paperback)
This interested me because it was shounen featuring vampires; most of the vampire manga I've come across has been shoujo focusing way too much on romance. The plot sounded intriguing and I found this first volume lived up to my interest and I ended up reading something a bit different from anything I'd read before. There is a bit of fighting (battles) but they are brief and the emphasis is more on character and plot. Yeah! I'm totally fond of the main character, highschooler Tota Konoe; he has a full range of emotions and in this volume is naive and unworldly, though I think that will change rather quickly. The story is dystopian set in a future Tokyo and (rest of the world) where population has decreased dramatically and we've entered into space living/travel but magic has recently been discovered as well. So far for age appropriateness there is male adolescent talk of females, a busty female vampire and nudity that is complete but has towels etc. conveniently placed. I've seen more risque bits in 13+ rated so will hold my judgement until I've read another volume or two as to whether I agree or not. I'm quite excited about this series, the mix of sci-fi, paranormal and magic promises to be exciting and the maturity of the plot is appealing. The art I found to be quite typical, though.
