HASH(0xa3f241d4) out of 5 stars Eagerly awaited and one of the best supernatural romances ever written! Sept. 6 2013
By Katharine W. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been waiting years for Midnight Secretary, and any other of Tomu Ohmi's series, to be sold in the US and leapt onto the pre-order list immediately to get the first volume. She is one of the best josei (or mature romance) mangakas I have read and her stories are ingeniously clever and complex. This manga holds one of the most unique supernatural stories ever, equally balanced between the challenges of real life and the mystery and power of the vampire world.

Kaya Satozuka is the best secretary of their company and Kyouhei is the arrogant, unsociable, very strict director of legendary rumors that doesn't want her, a plain secretary that's not sexy at all. Impressing 'this jerk' is something she can handle, but when she stumbles onto his secret that he's a vampire, even she, the perfect secretary, will struggle with the consequences, both professionally and unsuspectingly, in her heart. In this world, vampires are an integrated secretive and selective part of society. Some things written about them are true and some are false, as she will soon find out. A proud being, Director Kyouhei is an ideal vampire, possessive, intelligent, using humans as he sees fit but still keeping them beneath him. His 'unsexy' yet still perfect secretary Satozuka is no different. In the first volume, Satozuka loyalty leads her to begin seeing what's behind the cold exterior of her vampire director and he makes a decision for the both of them that starts changing everything.

As a protagonist, Kaya Satozuka approaches life in a different way than most female protagonists, but as the story continues, you see that there is still something about her that's vulnerable, very human and feminine. She's still someone you can emphasize with and she is by no means an airhead. I don't think her naivety is something to be criticized, and in that way, she's a woman after my own heart.

I can't wait to continue the story in the next volume. November can't come soon enough~~

HASH(0xa3fea294) out of 5 stars Shoujo Vampire meets office romance Sept. 12 2013
By Jamie E. - Published on
Format: Paperback
This was a cute manga where Kaya, a company secretary gets transferred to a new department where she finds herself working for Kyouhei, a company director, and son of the president. At first Kaya thinks her boss is a playboy with the ladies but soon learns he is actually a vampire who requires regular feedings.

Kaya tries to keep up the appearance of a very level headed secretary. Hardworking, glasses, hair in bun etc. But when she lets it all loose, she is quite cute and begins to get the Directors attention.

Overall, not a bad beginning, but it does seem to drag a bit at times. The artwork was lovely. The artist uses a style that is nice for me to enjoy and easy to decipher what is going on. Also, emotions are not easy to gauge being this is a shoujo. I just can't feel for these characters yet. However, I shall have to see where Volume 2 takes the story before I decide too much. This manga is a bit more mature than some mangas, for older teen-adult.

HASH(0xa3c95ccc) out of 5 stars Absolutely wonderful Sept. 15 2013
By ChibiNeko - Published on
Format: Paperback
I'll admit that I've already read the entire series through another format, but this was one of those series that I enjoyed so thoroughly that I actually went out of my way to ensure that I bought it when it was officially released. The general idea of the story isn't really a particularly new one as far as the supernatural romance manga world in general goes, but Ohmi makes things work.

The number one thing I liked about this was that the characters are all so generally likable. Kyouhei is a jerk to start out with, but he does warm up as a character throughout the series. He's nicely standoffish in this first volume and I loved that he's so blind to things that we the readers can see pretty straight away. Many readers will roll their eyes at the idea that Kaya is considered to be plain as she's such a pretty character even in her "serious" mode, but it makes for good interactions between her and Kyohei.

What makes this work is that we actually see our characters do work, or at least we see Kaya do work. The title has "secretary" in it, so of course we get to see Kaya show her efficiency as a worker. It doesn't go overboard and for the most part the work is mostly just there to fill the points between the sweeter moments between our two future lovebirds. The story here is nice and at times I can't help but get slightly reminded of Sensual Phrase, only MS has a lot less drama as a whole when you get down to it. There's nobody standing in their way other than each other, although that does change over time.

The artwork is the cherry on top of this manga sundae and I love Ohmi's light and delicate style here. I'm glad that this didn't have a bolder artwork style (thicker lines, bolder scenes, etc) and I'm also glad that Ohmi didn't fall into the temptation to put everyone in uber goth or uber contemporary clothing. The styles here are the type that would still look fashionable later on, yet still look professional. It's sort of one of my pet peeves that a lot of artists tend to fall into a theme where the clothing and character styles tend to fall into typical fads or themes, as it makes the stories from the various artists greatly resemble each other. Ohmi avoids this for the most part, making this work stand out nicely.

Overall it's definitely one of my "must buys" for people who love a good supernatural story. I'd exercise some caution to various readers though. There is some sexual content in here and while it's not graphic, sex is a repeated theme here in the manga. It's not overly graphic, but if you don't want to see sexual themes and content at all you will want to approach this with some caution.

[More of my reviews are available on my blog, Geeky Reading, to which there's a link on my profile.]

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this volume, although I was optimistic about liking it. I’ve seen it online a whole bunch, as just about anytime I search for a smutty josei to read it comes up, but the vampire element always seemed to turn me off (I’m much more a contemporary than a supernatural). And I think I was expecting it to be more hentai ecchi, although I’m not sure why, because that was a wrong impression.

But then when VIZ announced they were releasing it, I jumped right on board. (VIZ seems to have jumped right on the josei wagon, and I really hope that it works well for them, because I’ve happily joined them on it.)

Kaya, our heroine, starts working for Kyohei Tohma, the director of a big company, who is skeptical of Kaya’s abilities, would much rather have a secretary that is solely pretty to look at, and seems to be big on the womanizing. But Kaya proves to him from the get-go that she knows what she’s doing on the job, and she’s not bothered by his annoyance with her looks, even after he finds out that she pulls her hair up and wears fake glasses to hide her baby face. And then she finds out that Kyohei is a vampire, and that’s why he’s with different women so often.

First: I like the art. It’s not particularly gorgeous, but it’s very nice to look at. It’s pretty when need be, showing Kaya how the author wants her portrayed: plain when at work, but very pretty at other times.

I like Kaya. I’m waiting to get to know her more before forming a full judgement, but I like what I’ve seen. She stands up to Kyohei, she’s good at her job, efficient, she’s firm on her beliefs; I like how she stands up for her looks, and her general reason for how she dresses for work. She’s caring, too, and I enjoy her growing attraction to Kyohei. Their relationship hasn’t grown to the physical (although there were a couple glimpses, which I really liked), it’s still budding, and I like seeing it form slowly. It mostly starts because he has to drink her blood, and I liked how that happened, and generally like his vampire habits being a part of their interaction.

We haven’t gotten to get to know Kyohei too much, but I’m intrigued by what I’ve seen, including his relationship with his family, and his vampire past.

This volume was very much an opening to the series; I really like what I’ve seen so far, and am really looking forward to the next volume.

Midnight Secretary is one of my favourite manga series, as it combines pretty much everything I love in life — fantasy, romance and secretarial fashion. It’s published in the traditional right-to-left reading order, so be sure to begin reading from the right of the page, not the left!

The story centers around Kaya Satozuka, a secretary for the Touma Company who is now assigned to work for the Director, Kyohei Touma. Kaya is the model of professionalism and Kyohei is is a playboy who doesn’t think he needs a dowdy secretary getting in his way.

However, Kaya proves to be competent to a fault — even when it comes to selecting gifts for his many lovers and juggling their meetings around his schedule. Kaya is such a good secretary, in fact, that upon the revelation that Director Touma is actually a vampire, she even begins scheduling his feedings.

Kaya has a secret of her own though — behind her prim and proper attire and carefully pulled back hair, she’s got a total baby face. She’s too adorable to be taken seriously, so she uses glasses and professionalism as disguise and armour to be allowed to do her job. Kyohei has assured her that he only drinks from the blood of beautiful women (and he makes sure they enjoy it very much), but it turns out, Kaya might just qualify to be on the menu.

Vampires have gone from horror canon to sexy fantasy staples, and a series like Midnight Secretary shows why it works so well — vampires can be HOT. And this series takes full advantage of that. (Note: Midnight Secretary falls into the josei demographic, which can roughly be defined as women aged late teens to their forties. If you’re not comfortable reading — and viewing — sex scenes, this is NOT the series for you)

Kyohei is fully aware of his sex appeal (both as a good looking man and a powerful vampire), and though his jerkface playboy act is kind of a turnoff, Ohmi manages to fit in enough redeeming moments for him to be a hero and love interest we can root for in this story.

Volume 01 of the series is a great introduction to these characters and the roller coaster ride we’re about to take with them. It sets up the dynamic between them perfectly. The entire series is seven volumes long and is available in both paperback and ebook form. I’ve already preordered all seven volumes of the paperback manga. Admittedly, I haven’t read the kindle format of the story yet, but I hope to one day have the collection in my ebook library!
