Manga Review: Black Bird, Vol. 16 [Paperback]

I've finished "Black Bird Vol. 16" by Kanoko Sakurakouji.

Product Description

He loves her blood, but does her love her?

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!

Misao has made the choice to forgo college and a normal human life in order to be Kyo’s wife and mother to the demon child she carries. But her pregnancy is unusual, even for the demon world. The last pages of the Senka Roku will reveal the truth of the matter, but now that Kyo has it in his hands, does he really want to know?

Reads R to L (Japanese Style) for teen plus audiences.

My Review:

This volume is quite depressing through out the whole manga and leaves you waiting for the next volume to come out.

Kyo decides he wants to kill his child but Misao finally puts her foot down and says she wants to keep the baby.  Then Kyo starts questioning her motives like she wants to make happy memories before she dies.

Misao confesses she doesn't want to die and she wants to celebrate both their birthdays as a happy event.


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