Blood Lad 1
Staz is just a typical vampire, living in Hell. Unlike his more notable ancestors, he does not venture into the human world to suck people’s blood and pretend to be pretentious European noblemen – rather, he’s content with staying at home, reading manga, and playing video games.
Staz isn’t just a typical Hellian vampire either – he profusely loves human culture, especially that of Japan. You can imagine his surprise when all of a sudden, a Japanese human girl drops into Hell…
They actually mean eat, as in consume.
Being the leader of the territory, Staz orders his second-in-command, Deku, to bring the girl over to his room.
Unfortunately, some weird guy comes and harasses the helpless populace, forcing Staz to fight.
He wins quite easily, because apparently he can make a fist with his hand, and that will crush the opponent’s heart.
However, one of the weird guy’s plants ate the human girl, and now she’s a ghost.
“How can someone from Hell not be afraid of classes?!”
Man, this is what Twilight should’ve been like. We have this stupidly overpowered vampire, who’s the leader of an entire section of Hell, and can kill people by making his hand into a fist. Then, we have this human girl, and the vampire suddenly becomes all dorky and awkward. Staz isn’t perfect by any standards, and any self-respecting woman wouldn’t want to step within 30 metres of him (I mean, seriously, he’s downright creepy, if good-natured). He experiences almost everything the same way as Edward – stupidly strong, living for probably a really long time, likes human culture, isn’t affected by many of the things that affect vampires, and of course, having an enormous urge to suck human blood.
However, he doesn’t act all cool about it, but suddenly becomes all creepy-rapist-trying-not-to-rape-someone on the poor girl.
The plot seems interesting too – it’s an action manga (I assume), but with Staz’s overpowered attacks, I doubt there’ll be much fighting. Probably just a bunch of wandering around, trying to bring the girl back to live (which is the main storyline).
All in all, pretty good manga, and now that’s SWOT’s dead, I think I have something else to write about.
