He met a guy named Tooruh. They both became friends. Since Tooruh can relate, since he was born and lived in the town, he has gotten used to the town. He got used to the town, but he knows some unredeeming qualities of the town. There are other characters in the book that are important to the story.

There is a girl named Megumi. She is love with Yukki, but he does not like her because she is very annoying. Megumi has a friend named Kaori and they both do not really get along with one another, but they are still friends. Kaori has a younger sister named Akira. She is a Shiki herself. They all work together to make the story interesting and complex. After settling in, in the town, a lot of mysterious deaths occur.

The deaths started to happen after a small family, called the Kirishikis moved into a giant castle that was just built. So a lot of deaths started to happen and a doctor thought that it was an epidemic, but he was not sure. The real truth is that Kirishkis are really vampires. Originally, they were humans but since they all died because they were bitten by vampires they rose from the dead.

Since all of the people that died, by getting bitten by vampires, they are now vampires, too. I enjoyed reading this book because it was interesting for myself to discover by the deaths were occurring and it is exciting when a plot point in revealed. I really enjoyed the art style. The characters were interesting and they were mostly because I liked the types of lives that they lived and it made me want to know more about them.

I recommend this book for people who are interested in a unique horror manga. If you want to see characters with crazy hair styles, this is the book for you! I would give this 4. I also recommend that you watch the anime since it would interest a reader to see their favorite manga as an anime in order to see how the art style can be animated. Nov 23, Khanh Ta rated it it was amazing. The story line is complicated and has its own pace.

Be patient, you will be rewarded with amazing medical, cultural and psychological plot. The human interaction in this novel is just too realistic to be a novel. No plot is a filler, it is just a support plot to a bigger picture.
