Koishite Akuma/Vampire Boy (japanese drama)

i like to read mangas on vampires and all so i was really glad when i found this series and even more so, after i finished watching it although there were some sad moments as well.
it's mainly about our vampire boy ruka, who has yet to mature to a full fledged vampire. To do that, he needs to drink human blood that he's drawn himself and so he goes to the human world. there, he boards with jiro, the owner of a chinese restaurant and enrols in high school. his homeroom teacher is a cheerful but meddlesome young woman who catches him off guard. and so begins their story.
unlike most shows, i actually felt this show flow really smoothly. for a short 10 episodes, it was quite good surprisingly. i did feel our main actor lacking at times, but given his good looks, all was forgiven:P the supporting cast did really well too, especially the classmates.
i don't know why but the show touched my heart at times, and i really felt for the teacher too. she did good i felt. there were times when ruka was really cute, like his denial to drink his teacher's blood lol he looked at everyone but gave her a miss haha
the ending was quite sad, and later it started to get a little serious. i was worried that it would be too rushed and thus wouldn't be as good, but surprisingly, it was put together very well and didn't make me feel regret or anything. even the end, only the romantic in me hoped for a happy ending where they ended together. but even though they didn't, looking at it from another angle, it was a good end i guess. but still, i wanted them together sighhh
anyway, i watched this on mysoju with eng subtitles but i had some problems with the viikii videos. but seems like it'll be settled on 17 sep?? hope it does, it's only a few more days to go. and now, i'm off to more mangas and dramas and animes and whatever i can 'gorge' myself on.
