I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
"This story about a vampire has an unhappy ending. It concludes with everybody becoming miserable."
I laughed at this, although I'm not sure I was supposed to.
The POV character has spent the past few minutes being as vague as possible in order to avoid starting the story. Here's hoping I don't get to the point where I start wishing for his death.
I haven't watched the anime based on the books in this series. All I know about it (the anime) is that the artwork is gorgeous, there are vampires and other supernatural beings, moments of shockingly gory violence, and gratuitous boob and butt shots.
