Anybody else reading this? I am up to vol 10. I saw the live action movie. That was a huge disappointment!

Uh yeah...I'm up to when they meet the Kyoto people. The manga's all over the place with the introduction of vampires, and Sakurai-tachi. I really like the fighter-kid relationship.

I'm currently up to vol. 30. I'm personally a huge fan of the manga, although the one thing i didn't like was the whole vampire arc, cuz it didn't really have an ending, the vampires just stopped bothering the hunters. I also enjoyed the manga more once the "main hunters" are finally established, you can actually root for some of the characters instead of just Kurono and Kato, the only ones that had a legit possibility of surviving. (Although to be honest, that was one of my favorite parts of this manga, not knowing if even the "main" protagonists of manga would survive after every mission, lol.)

I've finished up until the latest chapter!
To be honest, I picked it up because a member of my favourite Japanese boy group was in it ^^;;
I still haven't gotten around to watching the live-action but the manga is amazing! I don't like the recent chapter much though...
Spoiler: show
The alien people are just too weird for me @_@

I stopped reading the manga for a while, and recently caught up... I got turned off with all the sexual stuff and how the whole thing seems so hopeless...

I got over it though, and I recommend this manga. I haven't seen the movie though... not sure if I want to.

Does anyone think the vampires will come back? It seems that the vampire arc was just an intro, and has yet to be concluded

Nah, i dont think so it seems the story has gone on a completely different direction,and those characters havent appeared in a while.

The manga was quite good but it got a bit boring somewhere in the middle and I stopped reading it until the movies came out.

I watched them and found them to be a disappointment but resumed reading the manga and quite liking it so far. The only good thing about the movies were the ikemen actors.

i already knew that the movie's going to be a mess. Japonese movies and actors are horribles. Dragon ball wasnt an epic fail because it's made in america but cause of the director. He even didnt know anything about the series.

They really need to keep the publishing more consistent. I use to enjoy it but kept losing interest in between issues.
