Chibi Vampire (Karin) Volumes 5 - 9

*Note: Since I'm reviewing 5 volumes at once I will only be providing the summary for volume 5 since I don't want to ruin it for others.

Karin continues to come to terms with her feelings for Kenta, but her flirting will have to be put on hold for now. Karin's grandmother is in town, and that's enough to put her entire family into a panic. Elda Marker is no silver-haired, cookie-baking matriarch. She's a hot and heavy vampire vixen with a taste for blood, but a distaste for everything else having to do with the human race. So how can Karin possibly tell her about her new human almost-sorta-not-quite-boyfriend? It's going to be one freaky family reunion that you're not going to want to miss! Also in this volume, get a glimpse into the Maaka/Marker family past in a side story that focuses on grandma and grandpa!
Summary taken from

This series FINALLY got good! Unlike the precious 4 volumes these 5 did not annoy the hell out of me and make me want to torch them....okay maybe they weren't that bad but frankly they were just okay. So that is why I was so relieved to see the series picking up steam.
Karin and Kenta are still bumbling along the road of adolescence trying to figure out how they feel about each other and the fact that Kenta's dead beat dad and Karin's perverted Grandma come into the picture doesn't make it any easier on the two love birds.
I found that the story is progressing in a nice way and the writing has gotten much better. I'm thinking that maybe the reason that I didn't like the first 4 volumes as much is because of my newness to the genre. I am glad though that for whatever reason that these are getting better. I feel like Karin and Kenta are evolving from the cutesy 13 year olds that they seemed to portray and are now acting more their ages.
I can only hope that the series continues to get better and I'm glad that the artwork is still wonderful I definetly recommend these more now and can't wait to read the final five volumes.
I give these 5 volumes:
