This starts off sounding like a manga version of The Vampire Diaries, but it very quickly turns into something different. Though it does get a little after-lifey, it's probably the most realistic vampire story I've read--no werewolves or turning into bats or sparkling--and has a nice murder mystery vibe to it. The whole story goes a direction I didn't expect, which was refreshing. The romance element isn't overdone or cheesy, and in fact leads to what I think is one of the better manga endings I've come across.
