I have been reading a chapter here and there in WSJ. But I started late so I am more or less 80% lost on what is happening.

This manga is awesome! I definitely recommend it. It has a nice plot and great artwork! It can really make you think. Read it in the English Weekly Shonen Jump and/or buy the volumes! It's worth it!

Wow this summary could use some more Edge, eh?
Seems a bit too Chuuni for my tastes, sorry.

I love the manga so far. I'm just hoping that the next 8 chapters get translated soon =/

I also really like Yuu, he's like a more refined Eren. And Shinoa is great, best girl for sure. I also liked

Damn!!!! The most recent chapters have been fucking awesome! I love all the strategy and politics that go long with the action in this series. Also, the characters are pretty top notch. I really like them all and Yuu continues to be a great lead.

Anyways, just some highlights I wanna talk about:

1. Kimizuki's past and his determination to save his sister was touching and sad. He just couldn't let her go no matter what. But his demon recognizing him was pretty cool. Yuu, Kimizuki, and Yoichi all have black demon gear and have loads of potential. Can't wait to see them get stronger.

2. I'm not sure how I feel about Mikaela. He's very broken, which makes him intriguing but he's also a little frustrating. He's thrown away his humanity, but he's also hasn't accepted being a vampire. He's stuck between both camps and I think ultimately his decision to reject his inner vampire or embrace it will come down to what happens with him and Yuu's next interaction. I actually don't think Yuu is going to like how Mikaela has become and will reject him and choose his new "family". Mikaela is very lost, while Yuu has found his place and seeing how Mikaela only cares about "saving" Yuu and disregards everything else I don't think will sit well with Yuu. I kind of want Mikaela to just submit Tepes and accept her fully and embrace his vampire side. Speaking of Tepes, I really like her and I love her and Mikaela's relationship. They're both very reliant on each other despite how very different they are from each other. I'm totally shipping Tepes x Mikaela (they've already kiss so that's nice too heh heh)! Tepes also seems like she isn't completely in bed with the other vampires, so I'd like her and Mikaela to engage in her plan involving the Seraph. So ideally I think I would want Mikaela and Yuu to be countering each other with Mikaela teaming up with Tepes and of course Yuu staying where he is with Guren. I just don't think Yuu and Mikaela can go back to how they used to be, too much has changed between them and I want Mikaela to find his path and stick with it. He's very indecisive right now.

3. Chapter 28 was fucking awesome. The vampires are ridiculously strong! In one strike that guy slashed down a building and was basically able to fight with like 8 humans fairly well. Though, he was still no match, but he was only the 15th rank. Imagine trying to take down Tepes.... They'd need like a whole fucking army and then some. Still, I love how there's no OP bullshit that leads the characters to victory. Everything feels "fair" I guess you could say, and the Shinoa's Squad actually had to use team work to beat the vampire. Everyone made good contributions to the plan and Yuu get an awesome finishing blow.

4. Also just a note on Yuu: He's like a more refined and distinguished Eren. Much more fleshed out and actually is rational and has some nice character development. When first reading this I thought he was going to go the Eren route and just be obsessed with revenge, but he actually gets out that groove, matures, and accepts his comrades and listens to what others has to say. He's hot heded some times, but he'll follow orders and not be a complete idiot. Basically what I'm trying to say is: Yuu >>>>>>> Eren

The fights are something that I really enjoy in this manga. It has a good balance without any one person or type of ability being too overpowered, and the way they use teamwork is entertaining. I'm glad they show that Hiragi with the tiger gun to be so strong, because there's the risk that possession types get all the glory and the ability types not contributing anything (which is sorta the case right now with Shinoa's group).

I was wondering, are the numbers of the vampire nobles ranks? I don't remember them ever establishing whether a 15th progenitor would be stronger than a 19th progenitor, though that seems to be what ppl are thinking right now.

I agree with you Yuu>>>>>>>Eren any day of the week . Mikaela gonna get rejected soooo badly by yuu i don't see this encounter being anything good since this is a shounen im expecting there to be a way for him to turn back human, or he dies, or he turns into the main antagonist and turns evil (the less likely path) and i to love how theres no OP crap that leads the characters to victory.....yet

I don't know I see Mikaela kind of being like a Wave/Jaegar and wanting to "change the system from within". Tepes seems to have some plans so I hope that he'll support her on it, but we'll see. I also hope that he can't change back to human, it would make the situation more fun if he couldn't.

And ya lol, YET! Though even if Yuu does master the Seraph, he would probably only be at the level of a third rank vampire like Tepes. I see him kind of being like how Tatsumi is currently where he'll get really strong, but he'll only be equal with some of the elites like Tepes. Even if he does master Seraph, he'd probably only be as good as third rank or maybe second. But if there's multiple third ranks going against him he'd probably still be screwed.

That's my theory though.
