Millennium Snow

Millennium Snow

Chiyuki is a young girl with a terminal disease. Near death, she meets a vampire named Touya and blackmails him into spending time with her; however, he doesn't drink blood because if he took a blood partner the partner would die long before him and he doesn't want to get hurt. When Chiyuki is dying he saves her life by having her drink some of his blood, because he feels even being with her for a little longer will be enough. She returns to school and forces Touya to join her there, where they discover that one of their classmates is a werewolf who is ashamed of being a monster. Both of them slowly become closer to Chiyuki because of her warmth, her will to live, and her non-judgmental love which heals the wounds from their pasts.

This is also a story about a girl on the edge of death, who has supernatural saviours. Similar happy + romantic feel to the story, similar pretty artwork.

These manga are very different in many ways, but on the surface they are quite similar. Both female protagonists struggle for survial. Their motivation to continue living stems from their love. While Full Moon takes a lighter approach to the subject, there is still a level of direness to the situation. Full Moon provides comedy and shojo love. Deep Love, on the other hand, takes you to the core of hopelessness. The story is simultaneously upsetting and endlessly provoking.

Both manga are dark yet touching stories about a lonely person finding a connection with a ghost who died tragically.  Their bond grows stronger as they support one another through hardships including bullying by jealous fellow musicians and their mutual double-edged punishing love of music.  Despite knowing that one of them is a living person and the other is dead, the harsh male lead falls for the optimistic female lead and her genuine enjoyment of music.     

//spoilers// Both have a similar happy ending with the ghost being given a second chance at life including a May-December romance.  //spoilers//
