Continuing with the vampire manga…

Pretty much every anime or manga has a hot springs episode, where the main characters go on a relaxing vacation to the hot springs that turns out to be anything but. In He’s My Only Vampire Vol. 5, Aki and Kana go to the hot springs so that Aki can recover from the physically draining process of taking in multiple Stigmas. But the vacation isn’t as peaceful as it should be, and Kana ends up getting kidnapped by the head of the Tsubakiin clan.

This is a big character development moment, because when Kana gets to the Tsubakiin household, she realizes that she’s been there before, and her childhood memories come flooding back. We start finding out some deep dark secrets about Aki’s true nature, and about what really happened to Eriya.

It was really great to get some deeper insights into the different characters’ backstories, and to spend more time on the vampire plotline versus the school stories. Pretty solid.

In Volume 6 of He’s My Only Vampire, we get to see how much Kana really means to Aki. The couple is reunited, and it’s so clear upon seeing them how much they’ve missed each other. Kana comes back to Aki, even knowing his darkest secrets. But then Aki makes a sacrifice that drastically alters their relationship.

I feel so bad for both characters now, and I really hope that Kana can figure out a way to save Aki.

And now that we’ve found out more about what the love triangle between Kana, Aki, and Eriya, I find myself really hoping that she ends up with the right guy at the end of the story. I only know childhood Eriya, but I don’t think I like him nearly as much as Aki. Hoping for the best, and hoping I manage to track down the last four volumes of this series sometime soon!
