What can I say, I like vampire stories 🙂 And the cover of this one was just too cute to be denied! Takara isn’t your normal Jr. High school girl. She is actually a vampire! Yeah, a cute, middle-school-aged vampire girl who has no problems getting around in broad daylight, and is in fact, pretty popular at school. She has an older sister who is in high school. The sisters are pretty good at hiding their secret, however Takara has a habit of not drinking enough blood and passing out from hunger at school. Her sister chides her about this, but Takara keeps forgetting. Anyway, this volume contains 3 stories about Takara, and then a 4th, unrelated story.

In the first story, Takara meets Aoyama, a guy in her class who is really cute and a great athlete. Deciding she likes him on the spot, Takara asks him out on a date! However, despite her cuteness and popularity, she is turned down! Things get interesting as Takara finds Aoyama asleep one day with his neck left exposed wide open there, just ready for a little nibble… 🙂 Another problem Takara must face is a classmate who suspects her secret. Story 2 involves the appearance of a new boy in Takara’s life who knows her secret and has one of his own! Story 3 is a too-cute-to-be-believed flashback story where everyone is a little kid.
