Manga / Vampeerz My Peer Vampires

Go To

Shortly after the death of her grandmother, 14-year-old Ichika falls for a strange girl named Aria. Aria does strange things, the most alarming being biting Ichika's neck and drawing some of her blood. So begins the love story between a human girl and a vampire girl.

Written and illustrated by Shou Higashiyama (creator of Prism and Stretch), the manga was serialized in Monthly Sunday Gene-X from 2019 to 2023 and compiled into eight volumes.

The manga provides examples of:

  • Amusing Injuries: Sakuya often gets these as a result of earning her daughter's wrath.
  • Amnesiac Lover: Ichika is this for one half of the final chapter. A kiss from Aria gets her memories back immediately.
  • Ax-Crazy: Sakuya isn't too right in the head.
  • Beta Couple: While most of the story is devoted to Ichika and Aria, a solid chunk of the middle part is spent on the backstory and romance between Khara and Shadi
  • Bifauxnen: Sakuya has her hair low cut and outwardly doesn't have much of a feminine physique.
  • Comedic Sociopathy: Aria oftentimes beats her man-servant or her mother. In the former's case, she made it seem as though he was a burglar and admits that she actually wasn't sure.
  • Depraved Bisexual: Sakuya takes a lot of pleasure in feeding off the blood of maiden girls.
  • Drinking on Duty: Sakuya spends most of her time in the nurse's office heavily drinking.
  • Gayngst: Mostly averted, as the vampires don't seem to mind being gay or bi but Shadi's religious upbringing makes her think that her being in love with Khara is wrong. Her couple hundred years as a bird helps her get over it.
  • Genius Ditz: Sakuya is actually considered one of the most talented nurses in the vampire world.
  • Genki Girl: Aria and Sakuya respectively show themselves as being especially energetic despite being explicitly stated to be very old.
  • Genre Mashup: The story is a romantic comedy-drama with action and ecchi scenes, slice-of-life chapters, and horror elements.
  • Kiss of the Vampire: Ichika finds Aria's bites very pleasurable.
  • Lesbian Vampire: The story centers around the relationship between Ichika and Aria.
  • Love at First Sight: Ichika's first thought upon getting a good look at Aria is "SHE'S SUPER CUTE!!" She very quickly falls head over heels for her.
  • Love Redeems: Ichika killing Aria with love in the penultimate chapter manages to only kill the immortal part of Aria, allowing her to live out a normal lifespan with Ichika.
  • Mayfly–December Romance: Ichika is a human girl, Aria is a vampire. However, Ichika accepts her mortality stating that it could not be helped. However, in chapter 15, it is shown that Aria's blood does have the potential to make Ichika immortal as evidenced by ants getting revived through her blood.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: Aside from personally hating the term, Aria makes it apparent that vampires actually have reflections in mirrors, are okay with crosses, don't transform into bats, and aren't harmed by sunlight. She does admit that some vampires don't like garlic, though. They also can eat normal food, breathe and have a heartbeat (though their base heart rate is slower than a mortal human's), sweat, and can get sick.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Aria and Sakuya are both very old. This is lampshaded when Aria dissuades Ichika from inquiring about her age.
  • Sweet Tooth: Aria loves sweets. Her big appetite for them is one of the many things Ichika notes as being notably different from what you'd expect from a vampire.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Aria and her mother Sakuya form this dynamic.
  • Unknown Rival: Apparently, there was some animosity between Kara and Aria which the latter doesn't remember. It turns out this wasn't the case: Kara had feelings for her much like Ichika.
  • Who Wants to Live Forever?: Aria tries to get Ichika to kill her once every chapter. This eventually drops off as their relationship becomes deeper.
  • Womanchild: Despite being inferred as considerably old, Sakuya and Aria both act like undisciplined children. In Aria's case this is apparently because her brain is neurologically still that of an adolescent; as for Sakuya, she eventually reveals that she was raised in a very strict household and after becoming a vampire made a conscious decision to cast aside the "proper" behaviour that had been forced on her.
