Speaking of love field, does it develop? Or is it "I know that I do deep down but I can't/won't admit to it" lingo?

I don't need details, just hoping that there's actual depth/progression to it. A yes or no will suffice.

For volume eight:
No. First question
No. Second one
No.

The new girl in town is introduced, there's the initial inside info about her personal life, what will embarrass her most, her envy against Karin is established, and she just wants to outperform her.

If not for the length, "Being a Vampire is so Embarrassing" might have been more.... accurate as a title. Ah well, we're stuck with it. I also suspect whomever was in charge of the first printing jacket has gotten troutslapped at this point

I'd expect the first and second question to be opposites...

Oh, and I meant overall, not just vol 8.

Competition though is good

Generally books don't get a second printing until quite a long time after the first printing (they try to print as many as they will need the first time, subsequent printings are less profitable). I doubt there has even been a second printing yet.

It would be yes for volume 6, and YES for volume 7 ... I guess

Time to update this nearly forgotten thread. Volume nine came out yesterday just five months later after the previous tankoubon.



There are quite a couple of surprises prepared for the readers in this volume.

Spoiler:


Cover for volume three.


Scheduled for release on December 12th. TokyoPoP will be releasing one volume of Chibi Vampire every four months so as to give time for the manga releases to go further ahead.

So, today being the last Friday of the month I received my new copy of Previews. (For those who don't know, Previews is like a giant catalogue comic stores get that shows soliciations of material coming out two months in advance). Rarely does much surprise me in the Previews (I usually have my manga purchases mapped out three or four months in advance and I even usually have US comics planned two or so months in advance. Today I was looking through the Tokyopop section, and guess what I found?

That's right the Chibi Vampire novel vol 1, coming in December! The Amazon link (though it doesn't have cover art). I imagine it'll be in the Love Hina novel style dress (similar to a manga) as opposed to the Scrapped Princess style (more like a novel).

Hey, that's really great! I'll definitely check it out. To be honest, I've never been that big on reading novels, but light novels catch my interest especially since I already have a sense of the characters. And from the way it's spoken of in the manga omakes, and so on, it sounds like it'll bring something unique and a bit different to the table, which is always fun. So, great news; I'm looking forward to it.

Interesting the manga variant of this story versus what happened with the anime.

I saw one and two yesterday in the Barnes & Noble near where I work and
had to take a look, it is done pretty well from what I can tell and YES, as
another poster noted - there's a LOT of ink (this is a series where the black
ink/white paper format works exceedingly well from a artistic viewpoint).

The variations of the story will make for more interesting possibilities.

Oh, and for those much farther along in the manga: do we get a bit
more about Usui and Fumio's earlier life?

Just a reminder that the first volume of the Chibi Vampire novel should be available tomorrow at bookstores (I'll be getting mine on Friday).

I love it. Only 4 months since volume 9, and we already have volume 10.

Spoiler for Volume 10:

This is the cover for Volume 10, which was released about a month ago. Thankfully, I already have gotten volume 10 on my hands.

Pretty nice summary, Shinji103.

This volume consists of chapters 40 to 42 plus two side-stories; one of which tells how the vampires reached Japan.

But I got some questions.
Spoiler:


After seeing the side-story chapter now I get why Elda literally clings to Ren and never lets him go off.

Are you talking about his "getting old I am" entry?

I thought there was some subtle "wtf?" in his remarks about the overseas title translation of his manga. He's grateful that foreign fans like his work but .... "chibi vampire"???

I should write him and tell him that his American fans are quite aware of what the title *should* be and we're annoyed about the change.

I thought the mangaka was female—Yuna is a girl’s name isn’t it?

Normally, yes, Yuna is a girl's name...but japanese script doesn't often illuminate the sex of the author and frankly I rarely check or care since "everyone's a dog on the Internet"(tm). I'll take your word for it that the mangaka's female until I see a picture otherwise
