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 touching when the cards are turned on the table and the one who thought himself superior is treated with contempt for his being different, a "monster".



I confess at being invariably deeply affected by the issue "difference", and how people treat those who don't conform to the norm, either for their skin colour, their beliefs or lack thereof, their behaviour, their look. There are a couple of scenes in this dorama which are still vivid in my memory because they were intensely moving. They made me think once again of how cruel people can be when they ignore and how easy it is to be judged abnormal.



So, although the acting is far from stellar and the plot at times inconsistent, I do believe this show deserves more attention than what it got.

At first, it started off a little bad. The acting seemed stiff and the characters a bit silly. The plot seemed to read like a cliche shoujo manga. However, as the show progressed and the characters as well, it became much better and meaningful. By the last episode, I felt a bit like crying and the ending was very well thought out, in my opinion.
It was definitely worth a watch.
