I'm having trouble with the logic of what our JP manga readers are spoiling ... meh.

Edit: I went back and read Freeter's spoilers. They make a hell of a lot more sense to me and I suspect his translation summary is the correct one if only because it logically makes more sense to me at the moment.

Good lord, adult Anju's hair is just stunning...

edit: I guess MatriXX's reading is actually closer on closing events (see below)

I believe it is 14, though the 14th volume is not on sale yet.

blargh... I guess MatriXX's reading is right after all. Hmmm, not entirely satisfying but I've come to expect that from a lot of japanese works....

That isn't really fair Vexx to say this and a lot don't have satisfying endings. Maybe not to you, but otheers it may be very satisfying. I think before a story should be called unsatisfying, it should also be mentioned in your opinion.

But on this one, it is like..wtf, so yeah.

Eh well, cut him some slack, aren't most things we write here basically our opinion? You wouldn't want to preface everything with "IMO", we'd never get to the meat of the topic that way.

I'm not too happy about this ending either, although I never did have high expectations for this manga despite liking it quite a bit. But then I'm a sucker for vampire stories.

I'll just stick "IN MY OPINION," in my avatar box and cover all future posts

Actually, I do try to preface remarks that are subjective with "imo". In this case though, what I'm saying is pretty clearly that such endings are less satisfying (for me).

... Kind of Japanese-ish, where the noun is understood or implicit in many sentences from context.

It wasn't the plot I was so fascinated with in this story, interesting but not life-changing .... but the author's *drawings* are just mesmerizing. I love the artwork.

Hmm, I actually like the ending to this manga (at least compared to other manga I've read, this ending actually doesn't suck).

Just picked up and read the English version of Volume 7. Actually, I really liked almost all aspects of it (too bad the anime couldn't cover more of this stuff but ah well). I think the only part that annoyed me was Karin's dad behavior at some points --- cliche understandable but still kind of a cardboard cutout.

Kenta's mom gets a lot of character points in this volume and lots of glorious pics of Karin in all her unhinged emotional rollercoastering.

Anju, Ren, and Karin's mom come off quite bit more complex as well over the last couple of volumes.

Cover for Volume 14:

http://www.kadokawa.co.jp/comic/bk_d...d=200708000484

Also, on Yuna Kagesaki's blog, she said she was doing two more special chapters for Karin after the ending that will be printed in the May and June of 2008 issues of Dragon AGE magazine.

One will be about Maki (which will be in the May issue, released next week) and the other she didn't say what it would be about, but it will be related to Karin in some way (an afterstory, maybe? lol, I can dream). And that one will be in the June issue, released in May.

Interested in the Maki story. Maybe an afterstory for her?

For the other one, she says it was a different/seperate story derived from Karin. Not sure what to expect here.

Fumio?

She needs more screentime.

But that one will definitely be a surprise. I hope it's something good.
Maybe different characters set in the Karin universe, maybe even about other vampires, I could go on forever and keep guessing.

I'm surprised that nobody pointed out that in chapter 58
Spoiler:


And I was right, they did stick a little epilogue thing in the very end of volume 14.
