Ruka (Yuma Nakayama) is a young vampire, but hasn't yet matured into a full-fledged vampire. His canines have yet to develop, which means he still hasn't tasted human blood. In order to get him prepared, he is cast down into the world of humans, where he boards with Jiro (Shiro Ito), the owner of a Chinese restaurant, and enrolls in high school. His homeroom teacher (Rosa Kato) is a cheerful, though meddlesome, young woman who catches the fledgling bloodsucker off-guard. Is he actually falling in love with a mortal?

    From what I've read around the web, this dorama didn't meet with a big success. I think the main reason is that it attracted the lovers of vampire stories but it didn't deal with vampirism in the traditional sense of the word. It defeated its own object.

    On the other hand, for someone like me who is only mildly interested in vampires and the whole sarg-sleeping, cross-shunning, blood-sucking process, this drama was a lot more enjoyable than I had expected.

    I liked the way the issue was approached, presenting the vampires as a decadent, declining, arrogant race who watches the humans with a mixture of desire and deep distaste, boarding on disgust.

    It makes it all the more

    Most vampire stories are bloody, funny, sexy, or any of those combinations. This story is not. If youve read the synopsis then you see its about a boy who became a vampire and meets his love who is now an adult. To become a full vampire he has to suck someone's blood and he will have full powers. The ending felt rushed and extremly disappointing. I fast forwarded through most of the predictible screenplay. I felt like I wasted hours of my life I could never get back.

    A lot of the concepts are not explained and some common vampire myths are incorporated. Its confusing what happened to him after he was turned vampire as a teen, as to why hes in the same

    I actually enjoy a good cheesy vampire story but this isn't one. An incredibly slow drama in which not much happens besides sulking and not so dramatic exits. The acting is insipid at best and laughable at worst. Not much in the way of eyecandy either. Skip this one.

    i find Nakayama Yuma so sweet but this was oooooooh the most boring drama ever. i didn't even shed a tear and i always cry like a baby over any kind of romance.

    @malen: you're so right!

    I just watched the last episode. Makoto seemed a bit unconcerned about the fact that her love was going to turn into dust. Like, "okay you only have one more day to live, I'm going to work now bye". I would've taken the day off.

    what a bad choice for the romance pairing. i guess they were trying to target female viewers in their late 20s-30s...who dream of teenage boys!

    I am so annoyed with this one cuz the romance wasn't between who I wanted it to be so I stopped.

    I can't describe how much I love this drama, it is quite literally and emotional roller-coaster. One minute you smile and are laughing along with the characters, the next you are crying as you watch the hardships they face.

    There was no point in watching this show, because in the end, everything went back to the way it was in the beginning except that Ayumu was dead and not a vampire and everyone forgot about him. POINTLESS!!!

    At first the drama wasn't all that great and it was slow, but around Episode 5/6 it started to pick up. Even then it was predictable but I still enjoyed it to some extent. In the end it was enjoyable to watch Yuma & Nakajima. ^^
