    This was such a cute book. I actually first read this right before Christmas and it was perfect timing. After all, reindeers are in season in December! Kurumi is your ordinary teenage girl who brushes against a boy who suddenly declares that she is his Santa Claus and he her reindeer! Can you imagine her reaction? What follows is a cute hilarity as she learns to accept her new duty and bond. She is literary bonded to the reindeer, Kaito. By an invisible rein only Santas and reindeer can see. I love Kaito! He has so much energy and is adorable with Kurumi. He is so patient with her. Lucky for him, Kurumi is a sweet girl. There is a slight possibility of future romance in the air but everything in this volumes is just innocent sweetness.This would have been perfect as even a one-short but this is just volume 1 of a series. I am curious to see where it goes. The is great from pre-teen through adults! The art is lovely, adorable and impossible to resist!I received a eBook copy from Viz Media via Edelweiss. So special thanks to them. All opinions stated in this review are strictly my own.

    Main story - read Sept. 13 - 3.5/5Short story "Sweet Bite Mark" - Sept. 15 - 2.5/5Sweet Rein is another cute, silly Shojo romance. Too bad I didn't find the series closer to Christmas! Magical reindeer wander the earth in human form, looking for their destined partner - their Santa - who they are compelled to obey any order from. The partners join forces every Christmas, working together to deliver presents to the deserving children in the world. "Sweet Bite Mark"... not so much. It's not bad at first - Young man comes home to a little girl on his doorstep, claiming to be his daughter. Given that he's a vampire, and never heard of her before, this claim is a bit suspect. It's mostly about the two of them learning to get along, more than anything with an actual plot. I could really have taken it or left it - especially towards the end when it started reminding me a bit of Bunny Drop. (view spoiler)[ It never says if he's actually her father, but the vamp does have a strange connection to her family - she's the third of her line (that we know of) that's met him. Gotta wonder what the mom's reaction must've been finding out she ended up with her grandmothers' ex...(hide spoiler)]

    This appears to be a typical Tsukuba story. Sweet, kind characters, Cute drawings, and a light airy fantasy. I suspect the subject matter of a teenage Santa Clause and her transforming reindeer will strike Western audiences as strange (to say the least). I think we are used to seeing the traditions of this story manipulated, but not broken to the extent that this one does. But, this is the exact reason why I personally found this story enjoyable. There's enough disassociation from the original stories that allowed me to "buy into" the fantasy -- and enough elements remaining that the story was "fun" to read. It is definitely going on my annual Christmas Reading list. (2013)

    The idea of this comic combining romance and Santa is weird to me, but it inspired me to read a little bit online on the celebration of Christmas in Japan, where I think it reads as less weird. This is a magical Christmas romance manga about a girl who finds out she's a Santa. She also finds out she controls a reindeer, a young man named Kaito who can transform into a reindeer upon her command. They are bonded through an invisible rein that she controls. Kaito has spent years looking for her, his Santa. It was good to read a manga so light in spirit, even if the premise is odd.

    This is just too cute of a series. It is 3 volumes and for the most part, I would say that they could each stand alone as there is no overarching plot that connects them. There are a few things that are referenced from previous stories so I would still read them in order. They are not complex or deep. They are fluffy and feel-good. It reminded me a little of Captive Hearts but Kaito is just too adorable and Kurumi is a little clueless, but it's all fun! I kind of wish Rihito and his Santa had another story or were featured a bit more- they were so hilarious! This one is super fun especially near the holidays I would think!

    I liked the first half. Though it was quite silly at times, it was very sweet as well.The second part- honestly though it was quite good. I kinda was lost. What had one to do with the other?Then it was so cliche- even more than the first half. I found myself rather irritated.The illustrations are nice. Really sweet.

    Inhalt:„Einst hat Gott Santa, der einsam war, ein Rentier geschenkt. Das Rentier tat alles für Santa. Mit seiner Hilfe konnte Santa vielen lieben Kindern Geschenke bringen.“Kurumi ist 17 Jahre alt und lebt seit dem Tod ihrer Mutter nur noch mit ihrem Vater zusammen, der jedoch die meiste Zeit auf Arbeit verbringt – so auch dieses Jahr an Heilig Abend. Dadurch fühlt sich Kurumi unendlich einsam und ist ziemlich traurig.In der Stadt trifft stößt sie mit einem jungen Mann zusammen, der sich als der ebenfalls 17-jährige Kaito entpuppt. Dieser behauptet, Kurumi wäre sein Santa und er ihr Rentier. Für Menschen unsichtbare Zügel verbinden die beiden von diesem Moment an und Kurumi kann gar nicht glauben, was sie von diesem merkwürdigen Fremden hört, bis er sie auffordert, sie solle ihm befehlen, sich in ein Rentier zu verwandeln. Als dies tatsächlich geschieht, wird sie sofort ohnmächtig und wacht in der Wohnung von Kaitos Familie wieder auf.Diese erklären ihr, dass sie eine Rentierfamilie in Gestalt von Menschen sind, die ihr ganzes Leben auf ihren jeweiligen Santa warten. Kaito ist nach seinem Großvater der einzige in der Familie, der seit langem endlich wieder einen Santa gefunden hat.Kurumis Aufgabe ist es nun, den braven Kindern an Heilig Abend Geschenke zu bringen, während Kaito in seiner Rentiergestalt den Schlitten zieht. Außerdem muss er alles tun, was Kurumi ihm befiehlt.An Heilig Abend beschenken die beiden gemeinsam zahlreiche brave Kinder und Kurumi ist so glücklich wie schon lange nicht mehr, denn sie ist endlich nicht mehr allein.Doch sie macht sich Sorgen um Kaitos Seele, da sein Körper alles tun muss, was sie ihm befiehlt und er so gar keinen eigenen Willen mehr zu haben scheint…Fazit:Hierbei handelt es sich um den ersten Band der „Sweet Santa“-Mangareihe von Sakura Tsukuba.Darauf aufmerksam geworden bin ich auf Grund des wirklich niedlichen Covers. Kaito hält Kurumi in den Armen, welche in ihrem Santa Claus-Kostüm einfach umwerfend aussieht.Ich habe noch nie einen Weihnachtsmanga gelesen und war deswegen umso neugieriger.Leider war ich vom Endresultat ziemlich enttäuscht.Die Übersetzung ist ziemlich schlecht. Ich weiß nicht, was die Übersetzer damit erreichen wollten, als sie am Anfang des Mangas ständig englische Wörter mit eingebaut haben.Das beste Beispiel dafür ist der Satz „Mama, ich möchte das Game da!“Mangas sind bekanntlich ja sehr umgangssprachlich geschrieben, jedoch habe ich noch nie erlebt, dass so willkürlich anderssprachige Wörter eingebaut worden sind.Auch waren teilweise die Sätze nicht ganz ausformuliert. Ein Beispiel dafür wäre „Ist er aus dem Fenster?“Der Zeichenstil ist vor allem auf dem Cover sehr schön. Gerade die Haare haben es mir sehr angetan, da diese recht einfach, aber doch wieder sehr locker gezeichnet wurden. Auch die Gesichtausdrücke und vor allem die Augen sind sehr ausdrucksstark – allerdings nur bei den Nahansichten. Wenn Charaktere kleiner abgebildet sind, mangelt es ihnen fast überall an Gesichtsausdrücken, vor allem an Augen und sonstigen Details. Dies hat mich persönlich sehr gestört, da der Manga dadurch irgendwie „unfertig“ aussieht. Auch sind die Bilder oft überladen – nicht unbedingt mit Sprechblasen, sondern mit sinnlosen Zwischenkommentaren, die man auf Grund der minimalen Größe auch noch kaum lesen kann.Der erste Band von „Sweet Santa“ enthält 3 Episoden, wobei eigentlich nur die erste wirklich mit Weihnachten zu tun hat.Die Grundgeschichte wird jedoch zu Anfang jeder Episode noch einmal wiederholt, was nach dem dritten Mal schon etwas auf die Nerven geht.Als Zusatz befindet sich am Ende des Bandes die vampirische Kurzgeschichte „Der süße Bissabdruck“, in der es um einen einsamen Vampir geht, dessen angebliche Tochter plötzlich vor der Tür steht. Obwohl er sie anfangs nicht haben möchte, baut sich zwischen den beiden schon bald eine sehr liebevolle Beziehung auf.Die Charaktere in „Sweet Santa“ sind sehr flach gehalten und haben so gut wie keine Hintergrundgeschichte.Alles was wir über Kurumi wissen, ist, dass sie einsam ist, ihr Vater fiel arbeitet und ihre Mutter tot ist. Sie macht sich große Sorgen um Kaito, da sein Körper vollends ihren Befehlen untersteht, während er selbst sich nicht dagegen wehren kann.Kaito kommt mir vor wie eine dumme, verliebte Puppe gelenkt durch Kurumi. Über ihn weiß man nichts, außer dass er ständig ein dümmliches Grinsen auf dem Gesicht trägt und für Kurumi alles tun würde.Die Spannungskurve ist absolut nicht zu finden. Kaum gibt es mal ein kleines Missverständnis zwischen Kurumi, Kaito und einem anderen Mädchen, schon wird es auf der nächsten Seite in einem Zwischenkommentar wieder aufgeklärt.Ich habe mich den ganzen Manga über leicht gelangweilt und habe deutlich mehr erwartet.Schade eigentlich, es hatte wirklich gute Ansätze.

    ~3.5-4/5[Read more at my blog, Geeky Reading!]A review copy was provided by the publisher, VIZ Media, and Erik Jansen from MediaLab PR. Thank you so, so much!This series is about a Santa Claus and her Reindeer. You see, a reindeer, able to go back and forth between human and animal, is destined to work every Christmas with their very own Santa Claus, if they ever find them. And they know because, as soon as they touch, a ribbon forms between the two, attaching them to each other. No one else can see it, and it doesn’t get in the way, but it’s there, can be pulled on, and their bond lets the reindeer always know when Santa needs them.Kurumi bumps into a boy one day, Kaito, and from there, Kaito follows her around, insisting she’s his Santa Claus. She’s reluctant, but she goes along with it. Most reindeer only meet up during Christmas, don’t see each other during the rest of the year, but Kaito stays around, and he insists that he loves Kurumi, who he calls Master.I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I started this, as I’d really only browsed the synopsis. But it was really cute, very sweet. Only the first chapter is on Christmas, the other two are during the summer, which I suppose means that it is not strictly a Christmas story, but has a very apparent Christmas undertone. I like Kurumi, she seems like a nice girl, a little lonely because her father, her only real relative, is always away working. I love Kaito. He’s such a sweetheart, and his devotion, adoration, and general happiness for Kurumi is so sweet. Kaito has a rather big family, most of which are also reindeers, and I really like them, too. It seems like it’ll be good for Kurumi, to be around such a close, happy family, and I’m hoping to get to know each member better in future volumes.This was a very sweet beginning to the series. The romance is apparent, although Kurumi is reluctant, and they’re going to have to work through some problems. I’m looking forward to that developing, though. I’m also looking forward to more family time, with both Kurumi’s and Kaito’s family.There was also a short story at the end, featuring a vampire and a little girl. It was cute, very sweet, although left me a little confused as to what the two’s relationship would be like later in their life. Also, it seems like there’s going to be a rather long wait before the next volume comes out? Like, not until April? That’s weird, right? That seems like a really long time, when it’s already complete in Japan. Maybe there’s more to it than I know of, though?

    Kurumi lives alone with her father, or rather, almost completely alone since her father is always away with work. This Christmas, he can't even make it home, leaving Kurumi without a single soul to spend Christmas with. But one fateful encounter initiated by just the brush of a shoulder may change not only every Christmas to come, but the rest of Kurumi's life!Why did they change the original title from HELLO MASTER/NICE TO MEET YOU MASTER to SWEET REIN? That really makes no sense to me. It must just be some cultural thing that was too difficult for them to properly translate over. It's true that 'yoroshiku' isn't really translatable, so I'll forgive them, also because they picked a cool alternate title...Anyway, it seems to me that so far this series was aimed for lonely girls, or even lonely guys, who feel like they only want someone to love them, especially when they're feeling down. I always feel alone nowadays, but I read this when my heart was a little more full, so perhaps that's how I was able to analyze it more clearly.It has a lot of sweet things in it here and there, but there are also steamy moments that could make the ice sickles drip. First off, Kaito also appears to be nothing more but a devoted (and almost obsessed) slave to what was supposed to be just an average lonely girl alone on Christmas. However, gradually he shows more of his real feelings towards her, especially by the third chapter. However, Kaito only has about three emotions that seem to be growing rapidly. Kurumi on the other hand seems to be maturing at a much faster rate. She already had it in her, she just needed somebody to bring it out. She's gone from average lonely girl to much less lonely girl who can also sympathize AND do something about it! Also, I'm pretty sure she is falling in love with Kaito as well. But if Kaito's feelings were brought on by reindeer instinct, then is Kurumi's feelings simply a reaction to his behavior, not to what really should matter about him deep inside?AND THEN, there is Sweet Bite Mark. Goodness, I actually agree that that one should stay as a one-shot, but man, it really was a good one-shot. Ren is soo sexy, vampire form or not! But especially in vampire form, hehehe... Although, I got kinda confused at the end... The way that little girl's family did things seemed a tad bit wrong, and also, I guess she really wasn't his biological daughter, huh? Mommy just wanted to play some sort of pretend? LOL. But in that case, that little girl's great-grandmother was the one true woman whom Ren loved, huh? That's... pretty sad... But! Ren is happy now, and it seems that family will continue to make him happy for generations!

    More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog http://surrealtalvi.wordpress.com/Sweet rein is a 3 volume series by mangaka Sakura Tsukuba, who is best known for her Land of the Blindfolded and Penguin Revolution series. Tsukuba's trademark gentle storyline with a dash of the paranormal are evident in this story of lonely Kurumi and her fate-designated reindeer, Kaito.It's Christmas eve and Kurumi is forced to once again spend it alone as her father calls to let her know he has to work late again. While out walking, she bumps into a boy and finds herself tied to him by a rein. He exuberantly proclaims that she is his master and the new Santa - and he is the reindeer who will help her deliver presents. Kurumi is skeptical at first but when Kaito turns into a reindeer in front of her, she has to accept that she is bound to the boy. As they get to know each other more, Kurumi starts to fall for her happy go lucky reindeer. But at the same time, she worries Kaito is only bound to her by their destiny and not because he returns her feelings.In addition to three stories, volume 1 includes a side story of a vampire who finds himself saddled with a little girl claiming to be his daughter. Although he knows this to be impossible, he finds himself intrigued by the little girl. But keeping her at his side puts her in danger from those who want to use his vampire abilities for their own goals.In all, this is a very lighthearted volume more concerned with pathos than angst. Kaito's lighthearted lack of concern is balanced by Kurumi's down to Earth fatality. Together, they ground each other and bring out the best points in both. Those expecting a lot of romance or romantic drama may not enjoy this title as much - fans of Tsukuba's works know they don't really focus on romance and instead are much more about life and how we choose to live it.Sweet Rein didn't grab me as much as Penguin Revolution or especially Land of the Blindfolded. Most of the characters were a bit flighty and hard to pin down - I think this needed just a bit more depth to really pull a reader into the created world. As well, the premise of Santa Claus did wear thin - how much can you drag out of a custom made for one day out of the year only. But Tsukuba's illustrations, especially of her repeated use of a ribbon motif, will please fans for their solid linework.Received as an ARC from the publisher.

    What a cute manga. Ostensibly, the plot is really creepy. This random guy comes up to Kurumi, says she's Santa Claus, and he turns into a reindeer. Creepiest of all, he is her complete slave. He comes whenever she calls and will do whatever she wants. The servitude can only be broken with a kiss.Surprisingly this comes off as sweet not weird. Kaito is like a big puppy dog. He's incredibly excited to be Kurumi's slave. That is slightly less icky than it otherwise would be when put into context. In Kaito's family tradition, it is the greatest honor to serve as a reindeer to a Santa Clause. His grandfather loved being with his Santa each Christmas. Plus he knows that many reindeer spend their entire lives looking for their Santa soul mate and never find him/her. So I can see Kaito's eagerness. I believe this is only a three volume series. I wonder if it was long if Kaito'd have more of a problem.This volume follows Kurumi's slow realization that she is Santa and her acceptance and even joy at becoming so. Kaito quickly goes from being an annoyance to a friend to the potential of something more. Kurumi also gets to realize how good it feels to be able to help people as Santa. To bring joy into their lives.A feel good manga. I can't wait to read more.

    Kurumi's mother died, when she was younger, and her father is always working overtime. So, she feels like she'll have to spend Christmas alone....AGAIN! But, this year, that just isn't the case. While out on a walk, after being told by her father that he won't be home for Christmas again, Kurumi encounters a handsome young man named Kaito that tells her that she is his Santa.As a rein appears, she expresses her disbelief in his story. But, he then has her tell him to turn into a reindeer. When she does, he proceeds to take his animal form.------------------ This is a sweet story of Christmas miracles happening all through the year, as they help a young boy through his difficult time of near-death, and of love blossoming when one least expects it, as they seem to fall for one another without ever telling each other.------------------- I was slightly saddened at Kaito's grandfather saying that love between Santa and reindeer is strictly forbidden. But, I am sure Kaito will still love Kurumi nevertheless.---------------------------This volume was provided to me as an eManga by VIZ Media, via Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review.

    This is an adorable manga with perhaps the silliest premise I've ever read: high school student Kurumi discovers that she's a Santa Claus (yes, that Santa) and that a handsome boy named Kaito is her servant, a magical reindeer bound to do whatever she orders him to. (Now that I type it out, it does sound pretty ridiculous.) I bought this out of sheer disbelief more than anything else, and what sells this story is the sincerity that Tsukuba puts into almost every panel and line of dialogue. Like many shoujo manga heroines, Kurumi's a good-hearted girl who wants to do what's right, and this story gives her ample opportunity to do just that. The threadbare will-they-won't-they-fall-in-love romance subplot between her and Kaito gets played more for laughs than any serious conflict; it's pretty clear that they'll be a couple by the end of the series, if not sooner. The only remaining problem is how to construct any other obstacles for Kurumi to overcome, since there doesn't seem to be a Grinch-like character lurking on the horizon. Honestly? It's adorable and sweet, and I liked it despite myself. Definitely be looking for Volume 2.

    I have always been a fan of Sakura Tsukuba, ever since I first read her manga "Penguin Revolution", and this new series didn't disappoint. I've only read the first volume, however it already has me hooked with its unique and quirky concept (a human-like reindeer looking for its santa? too cute). The characters are beautifully drawn and the male lead is fun and soft instead of the typical dark and brooding nature that most male leads seem to be portrayed as (its a nice change). My only negative comment is that the romance seems to be happening a little too quickly for my liking, but it's only the first volume so we'll see. Overall I recommend this title to any shojo lover who likes a little bit fantasy and not a lot of angst.

    I honestly did not think this was going to be my type of thing at all. The plot really sounded lame to me but am I ever surprised to have enjoyed this as much as I did! It is such a cute story. Shojo is not my cup of tea, but Sweet Rein manages to be cute, sweet and romantic without all the "squee" and usual annoying banter I don't like about this genre. A genuine nice book, with lovable characters and such a cute, feel-good plot. After three chapters the book ends with a one-shot story about a vampire whose little daughter arrives at his doorstep, "Sweet Bite Mark", turned out to be a lovely story also and I'm quite impressed with this book. Very light-hearted, but sincere and adorable. Perfect Christmas story for a Christmas gift.

    Who wants to spend Christmas alone? Kurumi is used to it, but not because she wants to. Without a mom and a dad who works too much, Kurumi’s luck is about to change, if luck is what you want to call it. After an odd run-in with a guy while out walking, he informs her he is a reindeer and she is his Santa, destiny bringing them together with a simple binding of a rein. Doubting his story, he shows his animal form to Kurumi and results in an instant connection between the two.“You are Kato’s one and only Santa.”Read the full review at http://www.musingwithcrayolakym.com/b...

    This manga was actually made out of pure adorable. The pages are soaked in it. But yeah, it was definitely a cute start to the series. I'm gonna try my hardest to continue reading it (hopefully, the library had more volumes). I'm so shipping Kurumi/Kaito. You can do it, reindeer boy! You get that girl!As for the one-shot at the end, Sweet Bite Mark, I really wish it wasn't just a one-shot. I'd love to read more chapters of it. Also made of pure adorable, as well. ♡♡♡

    While the whole Santa/reindeer thing is a little ridiculous, I didn't care as the characters and stories were just so sweet and fun and OMG I WANT A KAITO HOW DO I GET A KAITO. *starts bumping into everyone* (If you read the story, you'll get this.) Also, the bonus vampire one-shot at the end was ADORABLE. Volume 2 releases in April. APRIL. I think I may perish before then waiting for it. T-T

    Contains Chapters 1 - 3: This book was a lot of fun to read and has a unique and entertaining plot. I love all the characters and am looking forward to seeing how they develop as well as how their relationships grow. This volume also contains a bonus story called "Sweet Bite Mark" about a Vampire and his daughter when she shows up on his doorstep one day. It's a really cute story.
