Manga Review: Black Bird, Vol. 15 [Paperback]

I've finished "Black Bird Vol. 15" by Kanoko Sakurakouji.

Product Description

He loves her blood, but does her love her?!

Reads R to L (Japanese Style).

There is a world of myth and magic that intersects ours, and only a special few can see it. Misao Harada is one such person, and she wants nothing to do with magical realms. She just wants to have a normal high school life and maybe get a boyfriend. But she is the bride of demon prophecy, and her blood grants incredible powers, her flesh immortality. Now the demon realm is fighting over the right to her hand...or her life!

Sho’s death should have meant a return to peace for Misao and Kyo, once they came to terms with their guilt. But instead Misao finds herself displaying strange new powers she can’t quite control. Is this just the next stage for her as the Senka Maiden, or is something more sinister going on?

My Review:

Misao finds out that she is pregnant and she has new powers from the baby to protect both of them.  She realizes she needs to control it before it gets out of control.

Kyo and Misao convince her parents that both of them want to have the baby and she will finish school.  She has agreed to become Kyo's wife after graduation.

The assassination of the clan that Sho comes back to haunt them and there is a cliff hanger about the real fate of the Senko Maiden.

Thanks Simon and Schuster Canada for sending me this manga to review, greatly appreciated!
