This vampire story... kinda sucks
The overall premise of this tale is less interesting than the description suggests. It's a straightforward vampire story with the small twist that the vampire in question entices her classmate into being a food source for her in return for helping her pay for rent and groceries. Said classmate is particularly obtuse and hardy, so it works out. I do get a sense that the story can progress from here as the fate of the missing girls from the opening chapter is gradually revealed, but there's just one problem... "Hungry For You" intends to be comedic rather than serious, but it just isn't very funny.
Comedy in manga requires either emotional reactions to the absurd or escalating situations (funny in their own right). Unfortunately, Shizue is the only character who registers any facial expression that doesn't look like a drivers' license picture. This series is altogether too deadpan for its own good, and the end result is a vampire comedy that is bloodless for all the wrong reasons.
Silly, has potential

Endo Yasuko Stalks the Night can be best described as a gag manga. It is about a vampire girl who may or may not have murdered 3 fellow students, but told in an over the top silly fashion with her food supply/"love" interest, a classmate trying to unveil her vampire secret, and a wannabe vampire hunter from Texas. Overall it made me smile more than a few times, and even left off with quite a cliffhanger at the end. It even has some sweet moments in between. As of this volume there really isn't any shoujo ai but there is potential for there to be in later volumes. The characters are drawn pretty deadpan, but it adds to the authors sense of humor that they are going for. I feel that it has potential and I'll be picking up the next volume whenever available
Fun manga that will make you laugh at its silliness

I remember asking myself why would Seven Seas license such an obscure yuri title and wondering if I should give this one a chance but alas, I'm glad I did. The synopsis may give the impression that the manga belongs in the horror category but truly, it's not. It's more like a fun story about a vampire who doesn't take herself seriously. The people around her also make for an amusing cast. I especially love Ashley the American vampire hunter who has a few screws loose and runs away at the first sight of Endo's retaliation lol. Three mysteries were set up in this volume: who's the real kidnapper, who's the girl that spread bad rumors about Yasuko at the school, and will Shizue finally agree to be Yasuko's life-long "food supply"? I can't wait to read the next (and also last) volume.
It's really meh
Just a meh and bit boring story with some Yuri elements. I don't recommend Yuri fans buy it, doesn't look like this story goes anywhere worthwhile.
