  • Joyzi
    Random babbling...Beautiful love/suspense/horror/action story, lots of plot twists, a very very good vampire story. Very addictive, kick ass action! If you're interested in vampires you'll definitely love it!I'M TEAM ZERO BTW!!!
  • Nina ♥
    Who needs Yuki?Okay, so I watch plenty of anime, but this is actually the first manga I've ever read. I liked it very much, BUT here it comes...some parts really ticked me off, like:-The lack of action.-Yuki. She was such a a bit of a goody-two-shoes. Which annoyed the hell out of me.-The story tended to get a bit melodramatic.-The mystery parts could've been done so much better.-The cheesy dialogue.-Blood drinking being depicted as "erotic." Y...

    :Review Updated:Vampire Knight - This is the first manga I have read in my entire life. So this manga's about: A boarding school is divided into two classes, Day Class and Night Class. Zero and Yuuki are best friends, childhood friends are guardians protect the Night Class' identity: they are actually vampires. Kaname Kuran is their leader and Yuuki's madly in love with him since he saved her life from a vicious vampire and Yuki thinks he's(Kana...

    Again... Found this series by Netflix... The bane of my existence. BUT I LOVE IT ANYWAYS! Even with all of the... sexual well as the love-triangle.
  • Frankie Lovely
    Well Netflix has ruined me and I'm totally fangirl crushing on this anime ... so of course I had to pick up the manga too
  • Susan
    Stop me if you've heard this one before...there's a school that has a day school and a night school. The night school students are just a little bit different than everyone else...because they're vampires! Okay, so the general concept has been turning up quite a bit in manga (and likely to turn up even more with Nightschool on its way to us from the lovely author of DramaCon). Still, this particular series seems to have more emotional tension and...
  • Melissa (Ever So Mela)
    Since I'm fairly new to Manga I'm not sure if they're all like this. The dialogue was awkward and stoic. The characters all fell flat, except for Zero. I think he's the only one I liked. As for Kaname and Yuuki, GOD! Those two are boring as heck. Every time they have a conversation I can't help but cringe. I'm not really sure where this is going but all the reviews I see are telling me to quit while I'm ahead, so I'm not sure what to do.
  • Camile Souza (This Chamber of Books)
    I've already watched the anime, and I don't usually read manga, but I'm trying to give it a shot since the anime had no ending (which you can bet still makes me salty to this day).This was an interesting experience. The anime is one of my favorites and I'm glad I decided to try the manga.Idk how I'm going to approach rating manga from now on, but I still love the story and the characters in this format so it's a positive for this experience here.
  • Ronyell
    I have been reading manga ever since I was in high school, the first manga I ever read being Ranma ½. Well, just recently, I have stumbled upon another manga series called Vampire Knight (not to be confused with Richelle Meads Vampire Academy series) which is created by Matsuri Hino and it is about how a young high school girl named Yuki realizes about the existence of vampires at the private school, Cross Academy, while attending to her duties ...
  • Goge (BARRONS) le Moning Maniac,
    It's so ANNOYING and it DRAGS. It's confusing, more things pop up just to keep the story going, it's long and boring, the girl can't make up her mind, the guy can't decide if he's evil or not, the other guy (who I actually like) should go find someone better, the heroine and her brother can die for all I care. I only want Zero to be alive at the ending. A tragedy sounds GREAT!Anyways, I'll come back in 2013 or 2014 to finish this. It should be do...
  • Lu (Sugar & Snark)
    I heard this was a "Twilight" Manga, and in a way it was, but I was really happy that there were tons of differences! At Cross Academy you can find both humans and vampires. The vampires go to class at night and are called the Night Class, however the humans (Day Class) don't know that the Night Class are vampires, they just know that they are extremely pretty.Yuki Cross who can be seen as the main character was strangely not my favorite - she wa...
  • Majanka
    Vampire Knight is the manga that actually got me addicted tomanga. And anime. Not only is this a successful, still ongoing manga series in Japan and the rest of the world, it also served as the base for an intriguing anime series existed of two seasons: Vampire Knight and Vampire Knight: Guilty. Each season has thirteen episodes of anime goodness. If youre a fan of vampires you definitely shouldnt miss out on this series. Even if youve never read...
  • Talia
    In the end, after I've read all the chapters of Vampire Knight in existence, I can't really tell whether or not I liked it.On one hand, (view spoiler)[my pairing got together. Team Zero! Woot! (hide spoiler)] And I really did like the idea of the vampires, and the whole world Matsuri Hino built around them.But with that world, I also kinda feel like she didn't explore it enough. We're informed that Level C's make up the majority of the vampire po...
  • Briar's Reviews
    It's been many years since I've picked this series up, and since I'm stuck with only studying and staying indoors I might as well pull out the old books. I have the first 15 volumes in this series, so it's time to do some binge reading and sink into the world of Vampire Knight.I was OBSESSED with this series as a kid. I went to my local Wal-Mart every week to see if there was a new volume. I'm not kidding, I searched the book section like there w...
  • Carrie (The Butterfly Reader)
    For more awesome reviews, check out my blog! The Butterfly ReaderThis first volume serves as more of a prelude, giving the reader a glimpse of all the characters, showing that Zero is a vampire; turned by a Pureblood who killed the rest of his family. We also get to see just how much Yuuki already loves Kaname and how he cares for her very dear to his heart also. It tells you that Kaname is a Pureblood (not the same one that turned Zero), the mos...
  • Bark
    This was a fun vampiric manga set in a school where there are "day students" and "night students". Yuki is a cute heroine and there is what looks like a love triangle (groan, I know) possibly forming between her, the gorgeous and mysterious night school class president who saved her life years earlier and her tormented friend Zero who is keeping many secrets. I'm rooting for Zero but who knows what will happen? It is in black and white and becaus...
  • Arlene
    Vampire Knight by Matsuri Hino was great! Ive definitely found a shojo manga series I want to commit too, and I cant wait to read the next book! I loved the story line, the art work was amazing, and the ending had me driving to the bookstore to pick up the next installment.In Vampire Knight we meet two groups of students who attend Cross Academy. There is the Day Class, where Yuki Cross and Kiryu Zero serve has Guardians, and the Night Class that...
  • Sara
    I saw this popping up on several lists of "must read manga" so I decided to give it a try.At first I thought it would be a typical teenage vampire story. In brief, this is the story of an exclusive private school. Normal students attend the day classes, vampires attend the night classes. The day class does not know vampires exist so they don't know the night class (full of gorgeous, hot guys) is all vampires. They only get a glimpse of them at su...
  • ✨Skye✨
    A cool story. My manga/graphic novel reviews are always quite short because not that much tends to happen with them, but here's a little ramble. I like the night class/day class concept and I'm enjoying the characters. Zero and Kaname are great, Yuki is a little bland but I do like her. I think I'd connect with this more if it was an anime. The love triangle is good, I'm unsure who I prefer yet. I didn't actually see that big reveal coming, it's ...
  • Sesana
    So. I don't particularly like love triangles, or vampire romances, or heroines that are supposed to be competent but aren't really. But it's very popular, and the art is incredibly stylish (though I don't really like the way the eyes are drawn) so I gave it a shot. Twice. It isn't badly done, but it just hits too many dislikes for me to get really into it. And after two tries, I think I can leave it be now.
  • Joy
    This delightfully trashy manga wallows in all sorts of vampire cliches (see: gorgeous and mysteriously broody vampires, bloodsucking as sexual innuendo). I was spoiled for one plot point before reading this, and I was amused to find it in chapter 2 or 3; normally you'd have to slog through volumes of a series for something so emo-tastic. Seriously, this is perhaps the least subtle work of fiction I have read in ages. I will definitely have to rea...
  • Eleni (OverThePlace)
    Poetic. Every line is a story itself. It could take pages and pages to describe just one picture and yet wouldnt be enough. So little to be said, so many to be thought. Each character has a backround and each act hides a reason combining the perfect dark and diisrupted world that this manga conveys. A work of Art.
  • Anzu The Great Destroyer
    Note to self: stop reading books about love triangles.

The student body is divided into a day class, which Yuki attends, and a night class attended by the best looking students. Kanami Is a member of the night class and Yuki has never forgotten how he saved her life that ...
  • Jody Mena
    This story is much different than I had imagined it would be. There is more drama and less action than I expected in this book, but even so I found myself drawn into the story. So far, it is definitely more character-driven than plot-driven. Zero's secret really threw me for a loop, it seemed to come from out of nowhere, even though it was actually fairly plausible within the context of the story. I found the characterization of vampires in this ...

    Well I didn't see that coming.I picked this up for very cheap at a used bookstore, and I am so happy I did!I have recently got into manga & again, so happy that I did!This was a great first volume! I am so interested in getting into this world!I enjoy the day & night classes, I enjoy the idea that it is very top secret.I can see the future problems manifesting (view spoiler)[seeing as two people already fed off one of our main characters.
