Here's a manga that I've been enjoying as of late.

Title: ブラッドラッド, Blood Lad
Author: Kodama Yuuki
Genre: Seinen, Action, Comedy, Fantasy, Romance
Serialized in: Kadokawa Shoten Young Ace
Total Volume Count: 3 (ongoing)

Series Summary from MangaUpdates:
Staz is the vampire boss of a section of the demon world, but he has little interest in human blood. He's more infatuated with Japanese culture. When he learns that Yanagi Fuyumi, a Japanese teenage girl, accidentally wanders into the demon city, he jumps to the occasion. However, while Staz deals with an intruder on his turf, the oblivious Fuyumi is killed by a monster and becomes a wandering ghost. The disappointed Staz vows to her that he will find a way to bring Fuyumi back to life.
Kenn's Comment: It's an interesting series. It's a bit of a twist on a common scenario; guy falls in love with girl, forbidden love kind of thing, girl dies, and guy goes to resurrect here. Except in this case, he's got a slightly different reason. I guess I won't spoil it, but at least I've got you interested, yeah? The art really matches the plot and Staz himself. Speaking of Staz, he's awesome. An otaku that'll crush your heart without touching you.  And Fuyumi's a riot too. Those rocking tatas...
