    1. More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress/Back before Meyer's Twilight Books became popular, stories such as this one would have really stood out for originality and, yes, horror. Now that the whole vampire thing has become so passe, I can understand how many might skip over this very mature title. And that's a shame; creator Setona Mizushiro blends very distinct gothic storytelling with beautiful illustrations to create a very compelling, if disturbing, series. There's very [...]

    2. Oh my goodness. OH MY GOSH.Setona has written a series about real gothic vampires that's.original. The way the vampires feed is unlike anything I've ever read before creepy! And people die in this volumeke a lot of people. It's gorey, gothic, and even has a lot of dark themes. Suicide, murder, rape. I can't believe this is sold by Shojo Beat, though they've released darker stories before so it shouldn't surprise me.This series just had so much happen in the first volume. If you want something ne [...]

    3. The art on the cover is weird, but it looks okay in black and white inside the chapters.Let me explain why I rated this book down:1. Arachnophobia. Even if you don't have it, you'll cringe at some of the frames. I don't hate spiders, but I got bad shutters as some of the frames in this.2. The names are really hard to pronounce overall.3. Blood. Suicide. Lots of death.The story isn't BAD. It actually seemed to keep my attention. But the spiders and other things Ugh. Oh man. I'm only going to be f [...]

    4. Wow, this was a really good one. It's got action, romance, a unique and interesting plot, and some creepy Gothic elements.

    5. ~3.5/5[Read more at my blog, Geeky Reading!]This volume kind of… surprised and horrified me. I’m not going to spoil anything, because this should be surprising, and also because you can’t really be prepared for it. I was prepared for unique and very-different vampires, but I still wasn’t prepared for this. Which is how it should be.So the book starts pretty good. It’s the early 1900’s, in Vienna, and there’s a singer, who possibly sleeps around for money, and a woman he loves who [...]

    6. As someone who tends to avoid stories featuring vampires - especially *romance* stories with vampires - like the plague, I was genuinely surprised by how much I like this. Of course, this mangaka always manages to get me to like things I don't usually like, so maybe I shouldn't have been that surprised.At any rate, this is an unusual take on vampires and vampire romances. The first part of the first volume explores the past of the main male character, and I admit I wasn't too impressed by it. Bu [...]

    7. Setona Mizushiro has offered up an interesting and original take on vampires--something that the genre desperately needs. Black Rose Alice, volume one, introduces the reader to the main character of Dimitri, a human singer in 1900s Vienna. Dimitri is shown to be sort of a playboy, bedding women and playing around with emotions--save for that of one special woman. After an argument with his best over said special woman, Dimitri is hit by a horse and killedor is he? He wakes up in the hospital lat [...]

    8. Tombée par hasard dessus. Comme il n'y avait pas de 4e couverture, je ne savais pas de quoi ça parlait vraiment. Le titre ne m'informait pas tellement Du coup, je l'ai pris et commencé à lire.La première remarque que je vais faire c'est le dessin. Les traits ne me plaisent pas trop. J'ai l'impression de voir un mange inachevé, pas trop travaillé. Mais bon, ça, ça reste que mon avis après tout :)En ce qui concerne l'histoire. Là aussi, j'ai trop du mal à suivre. On ne sait pas telleme [...]

    9. I'm a huge fan of this mangaka and Black Rose Alice didn't disappoint! There was not so much of the typical vampire/awkward shojo aspects to this story which is why I loved it. The plot moved smoothly and there wasn't a lot of strange/stupid dialogue.Two things surprised me about this manga. One was how the mangaka didn't make the vampire absolute perfection which was something different and refreshing. Another thing was the use of spiders in the vampires storyline rather than bats or generally [...]

    10. this is a gothic vampire story in the classic sense: it starts off in nineteenth century vienna with murder, suicide, rape, and the perpetrator of the above so caught in his despair that he's determined to commit suicide no matter what the cost to othersi picked this up because i enjoyed after school nightmare and i can see that it's animated by similar interests in darkness and gender relations. i'm not really digging it so far but it is hampered by sticking pretty close to the classic vampire [...]

    11. Whoa! I really liked this. Not what I had expected at all! The vampire mythos here is very different from the popular western media take on vampires. Some things are the same such as not liking the sun, but there are more very peculiar differences. This is rather disturbing! Lots of death and blood, a rape scene, man with a 16yo girl, teacher with a high school boy, and the only romance so far is the overdramatic Romeo & Juliet I'd-die-for-you kind. That suits me ok as I'm more interested in [...]

    12. This is the first manga I've ever read, and wow, what a place to start. I know what you're thinking -- ugh, another vampire romance -- but I too have read and seen 'em all and was pleasantly surprised. The story is fresh and intriguing. In fact, the vampires themselves are pretty unique and special (and I don't mean sparkly). I love how the propagate, and I love how they feed. Also, there was surprise LGBTQIA+*etc!Trigger/content warnings for:- rape/noncon - between two different characters, a s [...]

    13. Kept reading it thinking I recognized the drawing style. After School Nightmare! Read volume one.Hm. It was odd. A very bizarre sort of tale and odd re-imagining of vampiric lore. Looks like it may get more interesting in the following volumes, perhaps along the lines of Petshop of Horrors? Drawings seemed disproportionate multiple times. May continue reading more of this in the future but probably not right now.

    14. Les dessins de Setona Mizushiro sont toujours aussi exceptionnels, mais on pourra lui reprocher toutefois que ses personnages se ressemblent parfois un peu tropAu niveau de l'intrigue difficile de la juger dès le premier tome, mais elle semble plutôt prometteuse puisqu'il s'agit du mythe du vampire revisité de manière assez originale:les vampires étant comparés ici à des plantes/parasites/insectes. Bref une série à suivre de près.

    15. 4.5 StarsIt's always so exciting to see a different take on vampire mythology, and Mizushiro offers something unique in an bloated genre. It's also nice to find something that has an overarching story and less of chapter-by-chapter. This manga is haunting and beautiful and creepy, reminding me of one of my favorite mangakas, Yuki Kaori. My only problem is that the male charcters look very similar. Otherwise, I highly highly recommend. I haven't felt this excited over a manga series in awhile.

    16. I bought this book partially based on the fact it was by the author of After School Nightmare (an awesome manga), and partially based on the story. And I was not disappointed by either. It seems to be yet another good manga by this author, and the plot is great so far. I am very interested in what will happen next. The pacing is good, as is the art. I look forward to volume 2.

    17. Non è la solita storia di vampiri e questo è un punto a suo favore, ma purtroppo le caratteristihe delle creature protagoniste della storia non sono per niente chiare. L'autrice si contraddice nel corso dei volumi creando parecchia confusione. Peccato perché aveva tutte le carte in regola per essere un ottimo manga.

    18. Color me intrigued. The bugs kind of freak me out and Dimitri is not my favorite person (particularly because of one specific choice early on), but the story and the mythos are really interesting. Also--thank goodness I already knew how to read manga, even though I've never actually read one--cause there is nothing inside to instruct on direction and page flow.

    19. Quick thoughts:* Pretty complex and mature for shojo--it could almost be Josei.* Ends on a semi-cliffhanger. Ugh.* But I'm interested enough in the story world to borrow vol.2.* Creepy--yea, grotesque. i like it.* Facial lines are kind of thin and airy, which doesn't make for a strong impression. Maybe it's the shojo style that I'm not used to. Personal taste.

    20. Drawing was good, and towards the end I was interested. But the plot was all over the place. I'm all down for a vampire story. This one however couldn't keep it together. I know manga is different from a graphic novel, but still. I will still probably read the 2nd one because I bought both 1&2 at the same time. Maybe two will be get better.

    21. I actually really disliked this. But as everyone will soon see, I for some reason could not stop and ended up reading to volume 6. It does get much better, but doesn't at any time seem to be wrapping up. The art is nice once you get used to it, and maintains a darkness through even happy moments.

    22. I'm not sure what to make of this. It's a really slow start. Definitely got the creepy gothic vibe going.My brother was the one who recommended this to me, actually. He said it starts slow and that it gets better, so I guess I'll give it another volume.

    23. dimitri's escape is full of risk but he have reason doing thate core of this story who I liked is story about vampirology/vampire world here isn't heavy & easy to understand although the graphic sketching is standart.

    24. I was surprised by how good this was, the title seemed silly, but I was really intrigued by the setting and characters. Mizushiro introduced some interesting and original vampire lore in this first volume so I'll definitely be continuing on.
