Kouhei Mido, a freelance photographer with unusual (and unwelcome) abilities to take "ghost pictures," visits the creepy place with his cousin and psychic medium Seiji. When Kouhei enters the castle alone, he is greeted and bitten by smiling Hazuki. Yes, Hazuki is a vampire girl with an occasional nekomimi (cat ear) hairstyle. And Hazuki declares that Kouhei is now her slave.
"Tsukuyomi" is manga creator Keitaro Arima's most famous work so far, and the reason is very simple. His drawings (of bacdrops and props) are sometimes disappointingly sketchy and it is clear that storytelling is not his forte, but he has successfully created an adorable and delightful heroine in Hazuki, whose "selfish" manners make her all the more cute. (Unfortunately for the English edition Tokyopop did not translate the FXs, which plays some significant role in creating the charcters.)
Not exactly the greatest comic, but "Tsukuyomi" is worth reading for its charming heroine. Also, the comic's anime adaptation (by the studio Shaft) is not bad.
This manga is less horror and more fantasy. Even with vampires, magic and psychic mediums the story line feels weak as if the artist didn't really know where to go with the plot or what to do with the characters. While slightly interested by the events within the book I don't feel the need to rush out and buy the next volume.
Kouhei is a photographer working for a spiritual investigation magazine. The problem for him is everytime he takes a picture a ghost appears somewhere in it. He is part of a long line of spiriualists and psychics, although his only real ability is spectral photography. He and his crew are at an old castle in Europe which is rumored to be haunted. While taking pictures from far outside the castle, Kouhei notices a young girl on one of the towers.
Later that night, Kouhei goes in to investigate. He finds the girl inside. Her name is Hazuki, and she sweet-talks him into kissing him. It turns out that Hazuki is really a vampire, and the kiss is supposed to make Kouhei her servent. However, Kouhei is psychically immune to all forms of possession, and he's also very thickheaded. Then, Hazuki's guardian comes after the both of them, but Kouhei escapes the castle. Unbeknownst to him, Hazuki also is now free of the bonds placed on her within the castle, and she follows him back to Japan.
Once she catches up to him, Hazuki convinces Kouhei to help her find her mother. Hazuki's mother was seduced by a powerful vampire lord, and he placed Hazuki in the castle to keep her to himself. Since her father was now gone away, Hazuki could search for her mother, but she needed the help of her "servant" to do that.
This is a pretty good and intriguing manga. It's funny and well drawn, with an engaging storyline. Hazuki's habit of wearing different outfits(primarily ones with cat ears)make it a good selection for cosplay fans.
I read this first volume of the manga after I watched the first volume of the anime, but actually the manga came first. I found the manga just as enjoyable, even though the cuteness factor had been taken down a notch. For example, in the anime, Hazuki wears actual cat ears, while in the manga, they appear to be more symbolic and appear just in certain scenes. The horror element of the first episodes of the anime have also been toned down, so we're basically left with the cuteness and humor. What sets this manga apart is the sense of abandonment that Hazuki and Kouhei share, having both lost their mothers. Actually, that causes the first big fight between the two, because Kouhei tells Hazuki that her mother left her, not knowing what the true story is. Hazuki gets so mad she forgets the time and almost gets stuck on the streets as the sun rises! The dynamic between the two lead characters is still evolving so you can't tell whether it's going to be romance or more a brother-sister relationship. Nice art and the story has a lot of potential.
I would also recommend the anime version. Another manga with a similar storyline of a girl vampire that's worth checking out is Chibi Vampire. Also the anime and manga of Full Metal Panic for a similar relationship dynamic.
