黑背信天翁 Black-Backed Albatross

Black-Backed Albatross [Manhua – First impression]

This is one weird story but it had me intrigued as soon as I read the synopsis. We have mention of a zombie, vampire and a human cub.

The synopsis of Black-Backed Albatross

Jiang Shishi, a zombie who lives quietly in the human world, was forced to live with the strange examiner, Christine, a beautiful vampire girl in the cold year, and Shishi discovered that she still had a human cub, Lori.

Zombies have cool party tricks

Initially I was confused reading this manhua, but it got better as I digested the story more. So our zombie lady is a kindergarten teacher and she has to live with a supervisor, who happens to be a vampire. 

I assume this is so she doesn’t go ballistic eventually and kill everyone? Not fully sure, but I reckon it’s something ominous.

This vampire, Christine, has a 4-year old daughter, who is stinking cute. I have no idea how she can have a human child, but I’ll just roll with it.

The story is odd as hell, but I actually really like it.

The art is beautiful and the unique society setting these supernatural people live in seems to be very interesting. I love when stories manage to completely offset what’s normal. 

This is apparently a shoujo ai story, as in girl + girl, so if you’re uncomfortable with that… you know, just skip it.

Final thoughts: It seems to really unique and I’m definitely going to continue reading this!
