Introducing: Black Bird & CH49

A quick introduction to Black Bird then on to the most recent chapter scanlated, Chapter 49.

So if you are not familiar with Black Bird, read the introduction then STOP, read the manga, then come back and let me know what you think. ^^

There is a world of myth and magic that intersects ours, and only a special few can see it. Misao Harada can see these magical realms and frankly, she wants nothing to do with it. She'd just as soon ignore her special gift in favor of having a normal high school life and maybe getting a boyfriend. One day, Misao is attacked by a demon, and her childhood friend Kyo suddenly re-appears to save her and tend to her cuts - with his tongue! It turns out Misao is the bride of prophecy, whose blood gives power to the demon clan who claims her. But most demons want to keep her power for themselves - by eating her! Now Misao is just trying to stay alive...and decide if she likes it when Kyo licks her wounds. ~TRANSCENDENCE~

She likes it. ;)

Genres: Shoujo, Romance, Drama, Supernatural, Fantasy, Smut, Comedy

Author: Sakurakouji Kanoko also known for Backstage Prince ~ Kiwametsuke Gakuya Ura Ouji ~

A MUST for Shoujo lovers who also need a plot ~a real plot~. With supernatural demon bishounens and battles for power and life, its more than just romance. 

Its one of the better shoujo mangas that is ongoing now. It received the 2009 Shogakukan Manga Award for shoujo manga. 

The art is quite good ~a lot better in later chapters~ and whilst the story can fall into abyss once in a while, its worth sticking with it. I remember not being too into it at one point but I'm glad I stuck around, and you will too! I highly recommend it!

Black Bird is also licensed in English so you can find the first 13 volumes for purchase online and in book-stores. WHICH IS MORE THAN WHAT IS SCANLATED ATM.  

While I am a big supporter of Scanlations in general, I don't see the purpose when the legal, higher quality, book version, which supports the author is more up to date.

Having said that do please check it out and HAPPY READING! 


Now, I am not actually DISCUSSING chapter 49 but:

Would you??

There's a lot to lose.

The history here isn't great.

And yet I am swayed.

I want Shou to be held and LOVED, dammit!



Would you?? Do you believe him?
