Product Description

Product Description

Chiyuki makes the most of the time she has left, even though things aren't that exciting--until she comes across a reluctant vampire late one chilly night. Can Chiyuki teach Toya to feel passion for life, even as her own is ending?

About the Author

Bisco Hatori made her manga debut with Isshun kan no Romance (A Moment of Romance) in LaLa DX magazine. The comedy Ouran High School Host Club is her breakout hit. When she's stuck thinking up characters' names, she gets inspired by loud, upbeat music (her radio is set to NACK5 FM). She enjoys reading all kinds of manga, but she's especially fond of the sci-fi drama Please Save My Earth and Slam Dunk, a basketball classic.

By Nicola Mansfield HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on June 30 2014
Format: Paperback
Vol. 1 - This is adorable! I'm on a quest to find shoujo that I actually like ... there must be some. I chose this because of the vampire theme and the summary made it sound as if romance was not the main element. I found the story cute and funny. We have the typical couple at odds but what is different here is that the girl, Chiyuki, likes the boy, Toya, from the get-go and lets him know it. He is the one who won't admit he likes her, though of course he speeds to her side the first time she gets a boo-boo. LOL. I like the girl's attitude here; she's sassy and has spunk, not a door-wipe like most shoujo I've tried. Of course, Toya, knocks her around a bit in jest, you get used to this in shoujo, and calls her names, mostly "stupid". I prefer Dojo's calling Iku "bonehead" in Library Wars, but name calling is cultural and I'm sure the Japanese equivalents are more endearing. I know in French they use animal names such as chicken, flea, otter, hen and even cabbage and egg! Anyway, I kept waiting to find out who the other guy was on the front cover and I *love* who it turns out to be. Sweet and fun. And the sidekick, Yami, the bat? Perfect comedic partner and kawaii! Looking forward to the next volume. Unfortunately, this volume does end with a (perverted) one-off which left a sour taste in my mouth ('nough said). (4/5)

Vol. 2 - I'm totally satisfied with this volume but we need to suspend belief and just go with the flow because plotting is all over the place. Things happen for no apparent reason and then everybody just moves on to the next thing :-( Normally, that would bother me but this story is basically "fluff" and really a lot of fun that to analyze it would just be pretentious. The characters are all so cute, I just love them! Of course I like Toya the best!

HASH(0x9d6c1e70) out of 5 stars Nice...for a rainy day April 24 2007
By Tres Chic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This Shojo-Beat manga is all about a 17 year old girl, Chiyuki, and an 18 year old vampire, Toya (There's always a Toya in these sorts of things, ya know). Chiyuki was born with a heart condition that has threatened to take her life since the day she was born. Toya is a vampire who refuses to drink human blood.

One day Chiyuki sees a "boy" fly off the rooftop of a building and goes to find him. She then meets up with Toya and his batty friend, Yami. Yami tells Chiyuki about Toya needing to find someone to become his companion of 1,000 years. Chiyuki, who is growing closer and closer to the end, asks Toya to drink her blood in order that she may live to see the first snow of every year for a thousand years, hence the title Millenium Snow. Toya and Chyuki become friends, but their friendship becomes threatened when a third party comes into the mix. Will Chiyuki still want Toya? Is it love or just a desperate want to live? or Will Chiyuki fall for the guy of every girl in her school's dream?

The artwork is not great, but Bisco Hatori does mention in her comments that this was some of her earlier work. Her little side notes are fun to read as well, so don't forget to read them should you pick this manga up. Its only two volumes, and not the best story in the world, but its a nice little read.

HASH(0x9d6c1ec4) out of 5 stars A Sweet Little Vampire Tale June 2 2008
By B. Calhoun - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Chiyuki Matsuoka has had a heart problem since she was a baby and every year she wishes that she will live long enough to see the year's first snow. When she is seventeen it looks like Chiyuki's yearly wish won't come true and her heart will give out before the first snow. Then she meets Toya, an eighteen year old vampire with a humorous bat sidekick. Toya insists that he hates human blood when in reality he's just worried about condemning himself to loneliness if he forms the traditional partnership with a human in which, in exchange for the human's blood, both human and vampire will live for a thousand years. Chiyuki volunteers to be his human partner, but he refuses. Nonetheless, Chiyuki becomes determined to stay by his side. This might become a little more difficult with the appearance of Satsuki, a playboy with an interest in Chiyuki whose firm insistence that he is completely normal actually hides a shameful secret.

Ouran High School Host Club is one of my all-time favorite series, so I was interested in seeing what Millenium Snow, Bisco Hatori's first manga series, was like. While it definitely isn't as good as Ouran, the sweetness and humor that infuses Ouran can be found here. While Chiyuki isn't as cool a heroine as Ouran's Haruhi, I do like her and Toya together and I also thought that Toya's bat sidekick was funny, especially when he takes Chiyuki's side and opposes Toya.

Right now there are only two manga volumes out in this series and it's currently on a break while Hatori works on Ouran (don't worry, volume 2 doesn't end on a cliffhanger). I enjoyed the first two volumes enough that I'd like to see it have a real end, although I'm not sure how much more Hatori can stretch out the plot (according to one of the author's sidebars, the story was originally a one-shot that she later expanded into a series, so it wasn't created with the intention of making a long series anyway).

Also included is Hatori's manga debut, the short story "A Romance of One Moment." It's a little weird (the main character's best friend has her dead twin brother's soul inside of her) and the art isn't that great. Then again, it's Hatori's first work and it does fit well with the tone of the Romantic Egoist short stories sprinkled throughout the Ouran manga volumes.

HASH(0x9d60e318) out of 5 stars A shojo vampire tale that is sweet and romantic! Dec 4 2010
By Julie L. Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
From the time that Chiyuki was born, the doctors have been predicting her death, due to her congenital heart condition. She spends a lot of time going in and out of the hospital. Now she is seventeen, and all that she wants is to live long enough to see the next snow. And then she meets Toya, a young vampire - and life will never be the same again.

It is only because of the full moon that she notices the boy in black as he steps off the roof of the hospital. Leaving her room without permission, she finds that she must see what has happened to him. She finds him on the ground and offers to help, only to find that he is surly and unappreciative - and uninjured. Which is when she learns that he is a vampire, and he has a companion in the form of a bat named Yamimaru, who brings him food when he is most in need of it. Not the typical food one might associate with a vampire but, rather, human food. You see, Toya eschews blood, wants nothing to do with it! As a result, though, he often finds himself in a weakened condition. The rude boy rushes off, but inadvertently leaves one shoe behind, which Chiyuki takes with her. Of course that means he must come back for it, which he does.

In talking to Yamimura, Chiyuki learns that most vampires find a human partner by the time that they turn 18, in a reciprocal relationship that ensures long life to the human and a constant form of nourishment to the vampire. Toya is almost 18 now and has no one, even though he will live to be a thousand years old. Chiyuki offers to be that partner, but Toya refuses, in disdain. When he learns of her condition, he relents, and agrees to take her out for a little bit, to have some fun. A crisis ensues, and a decision must be made.

On Chiyuki's return to school, she and Yamimura scheme behind Toya's back and enroll him as well, so it's off to school for the young vampire! An unexpected encounter with a stray cat requiring Chiyuki's aid, helps her to understand Toya's reluctance to get involved with humans. Toya shows a natural athletic ability, one he needs to curb a bit, but he does get involved with sports. When Satsuki, another athlete who is quite popular with the girls, shows up after a brief absence, he is welcomed with open arms. Well, not by everyone. He and Toya don't seem to quite hit it off, especially after Satsuki makes his interest in Chiyuki quite clear! The two of them act as if they are rivals for her attention. But there is more to Satsuki then meets the eye!

In a bonus story, A Romance of One Moment, we meet two girls, Shiki and Midori, who have been friends since early childhood. When they were six, Shiki told Midori her secret - she has a little boy that lives inside of her! He lives in her heart, and he cheers her up when she is sad, and tells her to hang in there. Now they are seventeen and Shiki is in great emotional turmoil. Her parents are getting divorced, and arguing over who will take Shiki - apparently neither one wants her. One day Midori catches Shiki doing something dangerous, and when her friend comes down, she realizes that there is something very different about her. She says that Shiki tried to commit suicide, so "he" came out - "he" being the boy inside of Shiki. When pressed, he says he has no name, so Midori thinks of him as "Shiki", although he seems completely different from her friend, in ways she can't explain, yet instinctively knows. Midori spends a lot of time with "Shiki", and discovers that she is developing feelings for him. What is she to do? She knows he cannot stay forever, just until Shiki is strong enough to cope. What will happen to him, to them?

Millennium Snow is by the same mangaka who brought us Ouran High School Host Club, another shojo about a young girl who doesn't necessarily fit into the mold of other such heroines. In this case, although she is physically weak, Chiyuki is emotionally stronger than Toya. It is an interesting juxtaposition of fates - the girl who has been no time to live, the boy who has been given too much. They have the perfect solution to their problems right at hand, if they are only willing to accept it. But that is a big commitment to make, so they are getting to know one another, for now. Perhaps one day they will be able to make it.

I like Bisco Hatori's style, and her characters, similar to what she displays in Host Club. She isn't afraid to take traditional gender roles and redefine them. Her artwork is very similar to Host Club too, which isn't a bad thing. The bonus story is something a little different, having to do with feelings and who a person is outside, not simply what their gender is. It was very sweet, and brought a tear to my eye. I look forward to the next volume of Millennium Snow a great deal.

Millennium Snow is a shojo with heart - you will smile, you will laugh, you will cry. Bisco Hatori never lets you down.

HASH(0x9d60e6d8) out of 5 stars Forever Snow Part 1 March 11 2008
By Karusichan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Chiyuki lies in a hospital bed with a fatal heart condition. One night she notices a young man fall from the rooftop. Upon further investigation this young man proves to be a full blooded vampire, destined to live eternally with his faithful bat servant, Yamimaru. Chiyuki begs him to grant her eternal life so that she won't die young, but the man, Toya, refuses to damn another living soul with the same affliction that curses him so. He reluctantly decides to extend her life for a time because he wants her to see the snow again one last time, and Chiyuki grabs at the chance to live her life to the fullest before her heart gives out on her a final time.

This story is sweet, endearing, and lot's of fun. I really hope that there is more than just two volumes (please tell me that there is!). Peppered with Hatori's signature style of art the pages are glorious. I enjoy the premise of this greatly.

HASH(0x9d60e7bc) out of 5 stars Millenium Snow volume 1 Dec 11 2008
By Gwen Morcant - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Millennium Snow is the story of Chiyuki, a girl who has been in and out of the hospital her entire life. Her parents gave her the name 'Chiyuki' which means 'millennium snow' in the hopes that Chiyuki would live many many years. One day, watching out the hospital window, Chiyuki sees someone jump off of a building! She runs outside and finds the person...a vampire named Toya. He collapsed because he was too hungry, so his sidekick Yami (a bat) rushes over, bringing food.
It is a very interesting story. Chiyuki is a spunky girl who doesn't let anything (including her illness) get her down. And she likes keeping everyone as happy as she is. :) And that includes people, animals, vampires, bats, werewolves...
