More about Black Bird

I agree with this reviewer somewhat, especially about the covers. I think it can still be redeemed if the author remembers that Misao needs characterization. Volumes 2 and 3 were about how dangerous the demon world is, and we need to get back to the focus on our supposedly main character. We know that she tends to trust evil people too easily, yes, but we need some more... She's been living on earth 16 years, I'm sure she has a personality somewhere.

Notice that the masterful Nana never lets the setting overpower the characters. Setting is very important for comics, that's a hook, but good characterization is the key. We all know that Kyo is a loveable sex maniac, but what drives him besides that? Misao needs more interests besides mooning over Kyo. Get with it, author!
