Kaya Satozuka is dedicated to succeeding at her job as executive secretary to the managing director of Tohma Corporation, Kyohei Tohma. It's not easy, though, especially since Kyohei is notoriously difficult to work with - so much so, in fact, that he can't seem to keep an executive secretary for more than a couple of months at a time. But Kaya is determined to be efficient and indispensable to her new boss - even after she discovers that Kyohei is actually a vampire.

To be honest, this is the first manga that I have ever read, so I don't have much that I can compare this book to at this time. I was at the local Hastings when I found myself in the manga section, and since I already have a few manga books in my TBR pile (Monster and several yuri collections), I browsed until I discovered this one, which caught my eye.

I really like the character of Kaya, who is rather headstrong and independent. I didn't, however, like Kyohei at all. He states that he wants to get another secretary more than once, because Kaya isn't attractive enough for him. He even says that he doesn't care about the skills of his secretary, because looks matter more to him. Ugh. Even though Kaya repeatedly demonstrates how capable she is as his secretary, his complaints about her looks don't end until he discovers, rather accidentally, that she's beautiful beneath the glasses and tightly put-up hair. Gag. Kyohei also practically has a harem of women floating through his office at all hours of the day and night, and he has a tendency to be cruel to Kaya in an effort to push her away because he develops ~feelings~ for her. Dislike.

Still, in spite of those things, I do think that this manga has some really good potential in future volumes. Plus it's pretty darned readable, so I'll be continuing with the series, at least for now. ( )

Yes, there are quite a few vampire romances out there, but since I've had a very loooong break from them, and really from manga in general, I have to say I found this story to be very enjoyable. It takes the traditional story of the holy highness jerky boss and uber-competent, secretly lovely, secretary and mixes it together with the naughty vampire story and manages to concoct something I found very compelling and engrossing.

It should definitely be noted that this manga is rated "M" and for very good reasons. Nicely drawn, the artist has paid a great deal of detail to her characters and has done well distinguishing everyone. You won't mistake the guys for girls here. The story was very easy to follow and although predictable, it didn't feel redundant. I zipped through the first three volumes in no time flat and wish I didn't have to wait for the rest. ( )

This is a collection of manga that I decided to give a shot since this was volume 1. Kaya works hard to disguise her babyface to be taken seriously at work and be able to take care of her mother. She gets a promotion working for a director that has unusual work habits and a steady train of women in his office. This is several issues bound together and the downside is there is a constant recap with every new issue. Kaya works hard to find out what are her bosses limitations and in turn wants to become indispensable to him. By the end of this volume she has accomplished it even if it isn't in the way she expected. Not my cup of tea since I didn't care for the characters or the plot but the at was nice and the asides the creator has in the beginning of each episode.

Yes, in real life, boss/employee romances are a bad thing, but I love them in fiction. I've wanted to try Midnight Secretary ever since I learned that it was a boss/employee romance with supernatural elements. I picked up the first volume and read it after a particularly horrible day at work. The verdict? It was lots of fun, and now I want to read more.

I loved Kaya. She hated how baby-faced she looked and yearned to be taken seriously, so she purposefully dressed to make herself look like her personal vision of an efficient secretary. That meant severe outfits, a severe hairstyle, and glasses, even though her eyesight was fine. When her boss insulted her looks and gave her a huge amount of work in order to try to scare her off, she gave him a super-professional smile, privately cursed his playboy behavior, and then did her best to prove that she was the best secretary ever.

It took me a bit longer to warm up to Kaya's boss. His instant dismissal of Kaya because she wasn't hot-looking didn't earn him any points, and I hated that he threatened Kaya's mother's job if she didn't keep his secrets. I think it helped that Kaya easily (too easily?) adjusted to being a vampire's secretary and combated Kyohei's arrogance with a pleasant, professional mask and quietly perfect work.

Kyohei was one of those arrogant playboy types who's secretly adorable. I enjoyed his private amusement over Kaya's efforts to learn his vampiric secrets, and I thought his reaction to Kaya trying to protect him at a Christmas party was great. When he learned that her glasses were fake and that she wore them as a kind of secretarial uniform, instead of forcing her to stop wearing them so she'd better fit his definition of hot, he supported her.

There is a bit of low-level jealousy in this volume – Kyohei seemed to dislike, but be resigned to, Kaya's attraction to his brother, and he forced Kaya to cancel what he thought was a date with another man by deciding that the two of them needed go to a party that he had previously decided to skip. This was all done in a way that worked for me, although the bit where Kaya was forced to cancel her date pushed my comfort zone a little.

I can't wait to see where this series goes. I've read manga adaptations of Harlequin romance novels, and those are usually crap. Although Midnight Secretary isn't one of those, it has the feel of a Harlequin romance novel adaptation done well, if that makes any sense. There's the prim, professional secretary who's maybe a little too devoted to her boss. There's the playboy boss with the tendency to brood when his secretary causes him to feel actual emotions. There's the perfect, golden-boy brother who provides the opportunity for a slight love triangle, plus a bit of mystery – I really want to find out more about Kyohei's relationship with his family and why he's the only one who's a vampire.

Oh, I almost forgot. One bit of warning: the series is a little racy. There are a few instances of bared breasts, and Kyohei's bite practically counts as sex.

Extras:

Very little. A few sidebars and a one-page comic-style afterword from the author.
