    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 comessome 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 Yeah, try having someone s teeth stuck in your ne 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 comessome 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 Yeah, try having someone s teeth stuck in your neck.Basically, the plot didn t impress me and I wasn t exactly blown away by the dialogue What intrigued methan anything was the dynamic between Zero, Yuuki, and Kaname I also LOVED the artwork, I think I enjoyed looking at Zero and Kanamethan anything, really xDThat said, I m willing to read the next one, since I ve heard so many great things about this series, and I have a feeling it will turn out to be kickass.PS, the Chairman reminded me a lot of Shigure from Fruits Basket I love him 3

    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 Kaname is the beginning of her life Zero is always 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 Kaname is the beginning of her life Zero is always by Yuuki s side He s serious, he never smiles and he has a sad, tragic life Yuki s also there to protect him.Zero and Kaname hate each other and Dun.Dun.Dun theres a love triangle in the story and a HUGE one.So the three main characters are all likeable, I guess.I never thought that I would ever read a manga about vampires.EVER But ya know its true that unexpected things do intend to happen.This manga s definitely worth a try The story s better than you will expect it to be The plot is excellent and I think this manga about vampires is one of the best mangas yetQuotesThe world is dyed with the color of blood It will never be able to go back to the way it was before The next time you open your eyes the world might have already changed I will cover and hide the part of my heart that wants to cry and scream Being like this makes me feel like we ve returned to the old days somewhat Yeah Zero is Zero Even if you are a vampire now I didn t understand anything Zero suffered and suffered for four years What were you thinking, all by yourself He loathes vampires so much, he wants to kill them all All this time, Zero wanted to kill himself too I long for him but I understand There s a line that vampires and humans can t cross Yuuki Cross I want these gentle hands and this kind smile, even though I should not want such a thing Her very existence means the world to me Because Yuuki was there, I might have been able to live on But you thought it would be okay to become a vampire, right I will never let you turn into something like that Even if it means I have to make Kaname Kuran my enemyand even if it means you will hate me Thats why for you, you have the right to be cruel to me.No matter how much you make me worry or how much danger you put me in, just as much as you like, but these are not enough compensation even I have to sacrifice my leftover life for you I d not utter a word of complaint Zero Kiryuu Humans should never be turned into vampires But in the old days, hidden from history, when the war between vampires and vampire hunters was at its peak, vampires turned many humans into vampires to use in battle And now the aristocrats have the duty to manage those survivors Sometimes we have to kill them off It s all right You be just the way you are, Yuuki You re different from the Night Class students who wait on me You re a warm hearted girl, Yuki That sthan enough Zero, you re suppose to be the one that hates vampiresthan anyone else but you need bloodthan anyone else I think you revampire like than any other vampire Kaname Kuran I ll show you a sweet dream next night in the anime 3

    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.

    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.

    Stop me if you ve heard this one beforethere s a school that has a day school and a night school The night school students are just a little bit different than everyone elsebecause they re vampires Okay, so the general concept has been turning up quite a bit in manga and likely to turn up evenwith Nightschool on its way to us from the lovely author of DramaCon Still, this particular series seems to haveemotional tension andengrossing characters than some of the vamp Stop me if you ve heard this one beforethere s a school that has a day school and a night school The night school students are just a little bit different than everyone elsebecause they re vampires Okay, so the general concept has been turning up quite a bit in manga and likely to turn up evenwith Nightschool on its way to us from the lovely author of DramaCon Still, this particular series seems to haveemotional tension andengrossing characters than some of the vamp manga with a central triangle that s farsexy than silly.Yuki Cross and Zero Kiryu are the designated Guardians and eternal odd kids out at the school at the heart of this series Neither has a family of their own and both have been taken under the wing of the eccentric head of the academy In return they must stick to a grueling schedule balancing their life as normal students with their professional duties guarding the school s secrets and maintaining the peace Not quite brother and sister butthan friends, their complicated relationship is up for some major tests Yuki s growing friendship with Kaname, a pureblood vampire who once saved her life causes a lot of tension with the vampire hating Zero Then Zero s discovery that he himself was turned immediately sets the series up for evendrama.Viz rates this series for older teens most likely for violence in one scene a bad vampire is literally split in two by a sword While these scenes can be a little shocking, there s not all that many of them the majority of the story is really dedicatedto the personal growth of the characters and the developing relationships rather than battle scenes based on volumes 1 4 at least.Recommended for 14 and for Twi hards this could be an enjoyable crossover read

    I have been reading manga ever since I was in high school, the first manga I ever read being Ranma Well, just recently, I have stumbled upon another manga series called Vampire Knight not to be confused with Richelle Mead s 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 as one of the Guardians of the academy Vampi I have been reading manga ever since I was in high school, the first manga I ever read being Ranma Well, just recently, I have stumbled upon another manga series called Vampire Knight not to be confused with Richelle Mead s 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 as one of the Guardians of the academy Vampire Knight Volume 1 is a truly awesome volume for vampire and manga lovers everywhere Oh my goodness I would have never thought that I would read a manga about vampires and get totally hooked into the story and the characters Matsuri Hino sure knows how to make the characters in this volume both interesting and full of wow entertainment I think that all the characters in this volume are awesome, but my favorite characters would have to be Yuki Cross, Zero Kiryu and Kaname Kuran Let us start with Yuki Cross first Yuki Cross is a truly spirited and innocent character that has the bubbly personality of most of the anime heroines you see on TV What I really loved about Yuki s personality is that she is one devoted girl who takes pure pride with her work as one of the Guardians of the academy and I also loved the fact that she is a true believer of pacifism as she wants vampires and humans to live in harmony But Yuki is not the only character who makes this volume truly worth reading as Zero Kiryu and Kaname Kuran are also awesome characters as they are polar opposites from each other Kaname is the polite yet mysterious elite vampire who seems to have romantic feelings for Yuki, even though we do not know why exactly which fits his mysterious personality Zero on the other hand, is your typical bad boy and kick butt guardian that anyone who love bad boys would love I also loved the relationship between Yuki and Zero as they have the typical love hate relationship that seems hilarious to me Matsuri Hino s illustrations truly define what beautiful as every character, especially the elite vampire students look hot and beautiful at the same time and yet have mysterious looks on their faces, especially of the image of Kaname who has spiky black hair and an extremely mysterious look on his face that will make you wonder what he is really planning behind our little backs.For fans who do not like seeing blood in books, this volume contains some bloody images, especially of the images of the vampires sucking the people s blood making this volume receive the infamous older teen rating.Overall, Vampire Knight Volume One is definitely a manga that any vampire or manga fan will cherish for many, many years and I am definitely looking forward to readingof the Vampire Knight series after this volume To see who this book is recommended for, I will just recite what the rating for this volume said at the end Rated T for older teen, ages 16 and up due to sexual themes and violence
