    Re-read. It's very insta love on Chiyuki's part but I don't think this was intended to be a long series right from the start. Toya is the broody hero intent on being alone and Satsuki adds a little humor and competition to the mix. Chiyuki doesn't strike me as the brightest bulb in the pack but she is sweet and well intentioned. The series introduction was cute if you don't over analyze everything. The art was true to the artist's style with the long limbs and the sprinkle of side commentary. A nice little interlude from regular books.

    This book is bad.I'm really not picky with my manga - I'll read just about anything. I just love manga. My obsession began with Fushigi Yugi and is branching out into many different directions, one of which is the more macabre world of vampires and the supernatural. So I thought that I would try Millennium Snow.I was very disappointed. The art is beautiful, if a bit disproportional at times. However, the book gives you no time to invest in the characters emotionally. From the first time that Chiyuki talks to Toya she's offering her blood to him, to form a partnership for a thousand years - and did I mention that was on page fourteen?I understand that the character is supposed to have a heart condition, but I just find the interaction between Chiyuki and Toya to be complete implausible. I don't believe, even if she were dying, that a woman would offer to help anyone that was as offensive and rude to her as Toya is. Perhaps that is naive of me.The entire book is set at a breakneck pace, as if the author knew where she was going and was trying to get there as fast as humanly possible. As a result, the story suffered. The book would have been a lot better if we had been given the opportunity to get to know Chiyuki better before she met Toya, if she hadn't 'almost died' on page 36 prompting Toya (for some unknown reason) to give her blood to heal her, if somehow Chiyuki hadn't magically enrolled Toya in school on page 46...

    I've really liked Ouran High School Host Club, so I decided to try this, one of Bisco Hatori's earlier works. You can most tell that it's earlier from comparing the art. Millenium Snow's is crude and lacks detail compared with Ouran. It's still pretty good, though. The story is stronger. I like the concept of vampires used here, that they're weak without blood (but won't die) and that they normally take care of that need by finding a human partner. The human will let the vampire drink from them on a regular basis, and in will live as long as their vampire partner does in return. This is appealing to the heroine, Chiyuki, since she has a heart condition and isn't expected to live much longer. Toya, a vampire who doesn't want to drink blood at all, isn't sold on the idea. I did end up liking the characters, and I'm interested to see where this story is going. I'm not exactly sold on the romance yet, though.

    Chiyuki (the name means a thousand snows) is a teenager with a heart condition. She may not live to see the next snow. Toya is a vampire who will live a thousand years but he's hesitant to confer immortality on anyone, including Chiyuki.Sounded like an interesting manga story. Unfortunately, it didn't work for me. I think it was too young for me. I enjoy some of the teen manga but this was just too silly. I did not feel like the characters were acting as expected. Their actions from panel to panel puzzled me and did not ring true.I appreciated the author's funny notes in the sidebars and there was a short interesting tale of two teenage girls and their friendship at the end. The author has written Ouran High School Host Club which I've heard so much about, mainly positive. This predates that series so perhaps the author is more inexperienced with her writing in this series.I don't think I will be pursuing the rest of this manga series.

    What a sweet story! Pure fluff, with some drama thrown in for spice, the epitome of shoujo, complete with a swooning heroine and an injured kitten. Yes, it doesn’t get much more cliché, but sometimes you just need a pure romance story – and if there are vampires and werewolves involved, all the better! The artwork for this manga was quite beautiful. Though I’ve never really been comfortable with the way Hatori Bisco draws humans (heads too small for bodies and eyes too big for heads), I love the way the perspectives and close-ups are drawn in this manga, it’s expertly done! The characters are great, Chiyuki is typically yasashii, but she’s slightly rough around the edges at times and quite determined while still remaining gentle. An excellent heroine. Toya makes a good hero for this story as well, or rather a somewhat tsundere anti-hero, since he’s always pushing Chiyuki away with his attitude. And then Satsuki makes a perfect rival, since he’s cool and amicable, yet with a shady, conflicted side and a sick grandmother to make him a sympathetic character. Excellent setup for a love triangle! Too bad this story is only two volumes long, such a plot has potential for a lot more books! As for the bonus story at the end, it was very sad, but I felt like it was too contrived to really take seriously. No matter what kind of setup about a stillborn twin the manga-ka wants to stage, it was obviously a not-so-thinly-veiled metaphor for a short lesbian affair between school-girls. I think it would have been much sweeter, and much less forced, if they had dispensed with all the mystical stuff and just let it be shoujo-ai. As it was, it was a cute little short story, but nothing special. However, I’m glad the main story has another volume to go yet, I’m looking forward to seeing how things will resolve in the next book!

    The premise of the manga is appealing--vampires must choose a human to be their source, granting them near-immportality. But the vampire Toya hates the idea of cursing anyone with immortality...until he meets Chiyuki, who has a disease that will kill her soon. Will Toya overcome his angst to keep Chiyuki by his side? Can Chiyuki convince him she wants to be his forever?In execution, it's more silly and played for laughs than dramatic, in the style of many Japanese manga that are goofy and comedic until the climax when everything gets quite serious. I appreciate the execution in some ways but was kind of hoping for a little more romance more quickly.

    SANGUE SULLA NEVE n. 1La trama mi piace molto. Lei ha una malattia incurabile e lui è un vampiro solitario, perchè dovrebbe cercare la sua compagna per la vita tra gli umani e farla diventare vampira. Però ha paura di legarsi. ha paura di perdere la persona amata e di soffrire per millenni interi. Quindi preferisce stare da solo. Ma incontra appunto lei. E quando un girno è stata male, lui le dona un pò del suo sangue e lei si riprende, tanto che ritorna a scuola. E non chiedetemi come, riesce ad inscrivere anche lui. Questa cosa l'ho trovata assurda...va bene la licenza poetica..però dai un minimo di coerenza!In alcuni punti mi prende molto, ma l'ho trovato acerbo e scritto male (che poi può essere una cattiva traduzione) infatti alcune frasi perdono quel pathos che dovrebbero avere.Il primo capitolino poi del loro incontro..è velocissimo. Giuro. Non si ha il tempo di entrare nella storia che già succede tutto.Inutile poi la storiella finale..è un extra con una novella con altri personaggi. Non ne capisco il senso. Mah..Nell'insieme non è male. E' romantico e divertente. Però non mi convince del tutto. Sarà che sono abituata ad altri mangaka di ben altro livello, almeno per me. Essendo però il suo primo manga, le concedo un pò di margine. Vediamo come procede. Spero nel secondo.

    So, this series was originally going to be a "One-Shot" (1-volume) manga. That means that this volume does pretty much make sense on its' own. However, it did get continued into a series instead, so the story is actually a few volumes longer.------------------- Chiyuki has heart problems, and is spending her life mostly in hospitals. Then, she meets a vampire and offers to become his mate, since she feels they have much in common. She doesn't think he'll give a second thought. But, he offers her some of his blood, and her heart issues are somewhat gone. She has a second chance at a somewhat "normal" life. She returns to school, and even tricks him into enrolling into her school. But, a love rival appears to keep things interesting....and, he's a werewolf. Throw a bat that speaks improper Engrish into the mix as well, and you have quite the interesting story.

    Review from my blog, The Haunting of Orchid ForsythiaStory:The synopsis does NOT do the story justice, it just makes it sound cheezy and well just like a kinda blah story. My suggestion would be to completely bypass the synopsis and just give Millennium Snow a go. I really liked how Millennium Snow began, were Chiyuki sees Touya fall off the roof the hospital (she actually thought that he had jumped to his doom). I thought it was an interesting way to start because from there you have Touya and Chiyuki thrust together (unwillingly on his part) and the beginnings of their blossoming friendship (maybe even more). Plus Touya has a bit of a barbed tongue.I'm definitely looking forward to seeing were the story will go in the next volume, and to see how the characters will evolve. I've even already checked it out from the library so I can see what will happen between the two- I mean three- characters. What I liked the most about Millenium Snow was that the story didn't beat-around the bush and drag along. I was especially glad to see that it didn't take the whole manga for Chiyuki to find out that Touya was a vampire, mainly since in the synopsis it plainly states the he is one. Content-wise, Millennium Snow is a pretty squeaky clean read being as I don't recall any swearing or nudity. Although I did kind of speed through it over lunch one day, so I could be mistaken about the lack of swearing. Character(s):The one thing I loved most about Chiyuki was that even though she was very gravely ill, she never gave up and that she was just so full of life. Touya was actually probably the most intersting character in the manga, with the fact that he was a lonely vampire who tried to keep everyone at a distance because he didn't want to be hurt when they would adventually die before him. He also made me laugh with how much he came to care about what happened to Chiyuki, especially when he wouldn't even admit it to himself that he liked her. Artwork:After having read Bisco Hatori's OHSHC series (okay, most of the series) Millennium Snow's art was just kind of weak, it lacked the attention to detail that her newer work has. But since it also happened to be her first manga it was easy to over look that (the artwork wasn't bad, just not nearly as good as Ouran High). Final Verdict: Millennium Snow is a sweet, light romantic comedy with just a dash of seriousness. In short, loved it.Millennium Snow 1 earns 4 out of 5 pineapples.

    Chiyuki is a teenager who is dying of a heart condition. Toya is a teenage vampire who refuses to make a bond with a human. Satsuki is a werewolf, who just wants to live a normal life. In a high school romance somewhat familiar to those who've watched Being Human or read Twilight, the storyline revolves around these three characters and how they learn about each other, forming a typical triangle for teenage stories. Listed as Hatori's first original manga, it has it's charms. Chiyuki is trying to make sense of her impending death, as well as Toya's off-again, on-again attraction to her, and Satsuki's desire to be normal. As usual in Hatori's manga, there's a separate storyline, Egoist Club, at the end of the first. This story was very bittersweet, about a pair of girls who were best friends, only one of them has a strange little secret, she's haunted, more or less, by her twin brother, who died in childbirth. When something bad happens to the twin girl, she goes into a coma, while her brother takes over her body and lives in her stead. I won't be going out of my way to get the rest of this series, but if I run across it, I'd be happy to read it.

    Chiyuki has a congenital heart problem that will most likely kill her before the next snow (her 18th). When she encounters 18 year old Toya, she discovers that he is a vampire unwilling to drink human blood, as he fears developing relationships with people who will die long before his 1,000 years are up. Apparently, vampires develop relationships with the person they get blood from, rather than kill them.... or something. Then, of course, he saves her mid-heart attack and the relationship and all its problems starts from there. When male rival Satsuki enters the picture, it is no surprise that he turns out to be a werewolf! Initially I thought this was a total Twilight copy, but in fact it was published long before Ms. Meyer came along. So far, full of drama and sooo good!

    I just love this series. I just wish there was more than just two books. Sadness. Anyway, it's a lovely story about a girl (Chiyuki) with heart troubles who meets a boy (Toya) who turns out to be a vampire. But this is no ordinary vampire, he doesn't drink blood! Why? When he drinks that persons blood, they will together live for 1000 years. But will he change his mind as he grows closer to Chiyuki? Will he let her fall into the hands of a werewolf named Satsuki? Will Toya be able to save Chiyuki from her heart troubles? Find out in this volume of Millennium Snow!With a plot line like that, how can you not love these characters?

    A terminally ill girl meets a vampire who could save her life and make her live a thousand years just by drinking her blood. Unfortunately for her, he doesn't want to. If I remember right, this series is very brief, and I can see why. As a vampire romance (or werewolf romance, if you count the guy who shows up later in this volume), it's not very good. The supernatural stuff isn't very prominent, and the romance didn't prompt any fangirl feelings on my part.(Originally posted on A Library Girl's Familiar Diversions.)

    Its a little hard to say whether or not I like this series as I've yet to get into it too deeply. So far I don't see it being Hatori's best work. Ouran High School Host Club felt a lot more fully realized. The biggest drawback is that all the characters are changing TOO quickly. I think a little more time could have been taken to establish relationships and personalities. That being said, the concept is interesting. It was cute and funny. You could see a lot of Hatori's writing personality in it. I'd keep reading it, but I probably wouldn't buy the mangas at full price.

    OMG. I am not the target audience for this. Appears like there will be some sort of love triangle between a vampire, a human girl, and a werewolf. The only redeeming part is the vampire's little bat sidekick. He's cute. And says "were-woof".

    A girl with a heart condition meets a vampire who could extend her life if she were to become his partner. She wants to live, but he denies her. At first.I'm not sure how many times I've re-read this manga; it's been on my bookshelf forever. But I only just realized that Bisco Hatori finished the series (which went on a 10-year hiatus thanks to the overwhelming success of Ouran High School Host Club). So another re-read was in order.

    Bisco Hatori has yet to disappoint me!I definitely enjoyed this cute little vampire story, and I'm excited to read the rest of the volumes. However, the story itself moves very quickly. It's very insta-love, which I usually don't like, but I forgive that and the fast pace because this was originally meant to be a one-shot manga. Still, if you want something fun, cute, and very shojo, Millennium Snow is a pleasant read!

    It had a Twilighty feeling to it but at least vampires do not sparkle and it is better than Twilight anyway.There is a kind of insta-love and a sort of triangle but I'm much more forgiving toward these two things when we talk about manga and especially about such short series (4 volumes...stuff is bound to happen quickly especially considering the small number of pages...)

  • Laura
    2018-11-13 04:13

    I'm not super impressed with this story. Some potential, but overall kinda forcing myself to read it. Maybe it's because this is one of Bisco's earlier works? And that extra story at the end was just weird and kinda disappointing cuz looks like could be wlw but really her twin brother "possessing" her.

    Drawings and storyline were pretty nice, even if it is inadequate compared to Ouran High School Host Club. In addition, I feel as though a lot of ideas from this series were used in Ouran, so the parallels are easy to see. Other than that, this is a heartwarming story, even if a little rushed at times.
