Vampire Knight by Matsuri Hino
Genre: Action, Drama, Romance, Horror

Licensed by Viz (Shoujo Beat Title)

Summary: The story takes place at Cross Academy, a school where humans and vampires coexist as classmates (although the majority of the 'Day Class' do not know the true identity of the 'Night Class'). Yuuki Cross and Zero Kiryu are both members of the 'Day Class' who act as Guardians (prefects) between the two classes. While Yuuki possess the ideals of coexisting with vampires, Zero has a deep hatred for them.

I first fell in love with this series because of it's artwork. I happened to see a copy of Shoujo Beat with Yuuki on the cover and began researching what series it had been. Viz has only released two volumes so far, but there is roughly six volumes released in Japan. I've read up to 5, and Zero's past is really driving the story. The amazing character designs are enough of a reason to keep reading though

Is anyone else reading this series? Although initially I really liked Kaname, I think Zero is my favourite character now. Yuuki seems rather conflicted over her feelings for Kaname and Zero, but I hope she picks Zero myself

Yeah, I was expecting one to come out soon. There were SOO many girls cosplaying Yuuki at Anime North this year, I was surprised. I'm kind of hesitant about them making an anime though ... what I really do love about this series is the art, and an anime cannot produce such gorgeous details.

What I like is that this manga doesn't focus specifically on romance. It's there, but it's not overly romantic (so far). It's really more like a giant mystery about the history of all the characters, and how they're all connected.

Just finished reading chapter 30. Um, Kaname/Zero anyone? you can't deny that the last page was hot!!! Zero taking Kaname's blood ...

But I find I tend to lose the actual plot between chapter releases. So confused about who that guy was in chapter 29 ... (but he was cute so all is forgiven??) Maybe he was a new character ... I don't even remember what he did in the chapter, actually ... *needs to reread after the yaoi shock*

Vampire Knight is licensed by Viz. It is against site rules to request or share downloads of US licensed series. So we can't tell you where to find scans.

Viz is releasing volume 3 next month! I really need to invest in the books so I can get a better grasp on the story. I'm just waiting for my local comic store to do a sale

hmmm, after reading your summary and after looking at the awesome reviews on baka-updates (they have 228+ people who voted it as a 10), i think im pretty keen on starting this manga, sounds good, and who could possibly hate a story about vampires? but damn, there's so much out there to read right now..*must find time to read this series*
-----

well anyway, i just caught up to v6 chap 31, which is as far as the updates have gone, i loooooooove it so much....but i keep thinking to myself...kaname or zero? its such a hard decision, i feel bad for yuuki, though i think she's leaning more towards kaname....i think she thinks of zero as more of a brother than anything else

I really like this manga. I've finished vol. 5, waiting vol. 6 to come out. I hope Yuki will choose Kaname over Zero since both of them are vampires now.

WOW. An anime of this manga, can't wait for it.

Volume six is basically "out" in Japan, since chapters 30-33 have already been released in Lala magazine. Though I haven't read since chapter 31 myself. The 'sources' haven't come out with 32+ yet

There was an interesting discussion at the same post where I found out about the licensing, about how some fans are starting to dislike Kaname because he's showing to be quite manipulative and possibly evil.

As for the anime, I'm a bit apprehensive. The one thing I love about this series is the art, and no matter how big the budget is for the anime, they won't be able to reproduce it exactly.

I would probably be one of those people that finds Kaname annoying, evil and manipulative! I can't stand him whatsoever. Regardless of what he did. Zero is way cooler, way hotter and way....better? Gosh, my arguments in his defense are so awesome! XD

I understand how Kaname saved her life and anything, but come on, Zero's right there, gosh if she doesn't want him then I'll gladly take him!

I'm a Zero fan myself. Although, I think I won't mind Kaname's evil/manipulative side if it strays away from romance and focuses more on the plot-aspects. I mean, I know he likes Yuuki and sees Zero as an aid in watching her, but letting his blood spill? Hmmm. They could develop that quite well with the whole manipulation thing.

It is true, the KanamexYuki relationship has a much more plot developing aspect towards it compared to ZeroxYuki relationship. Way I see it, Zero and Yuki is more of a passionate, hot love, while Kaname and Yuki is a deep crimson red love. That's how I see the two relationships on standpoint. I understand why they are leaning more towards a Kaname and Yuki relationship because of the plot, but still.....ZERO!
