Cross Academy is attended by two groups of students: the day class and the night class. Yuki Cross and Zero Kiryu are the guardians of the school, protecting the day class from the Academy's dark secret: the night class is full of vampires!
Yuki and Zero are the guardians of the school. They have to guard the secret of the night class very well and make sure they don't suck the day class dry. The night class is full of vampires and if Yuki and Zero aren't careful, people can and will get hurt.
Vampire Knight is so addicting! The artwork is absolutely gorgeous and well drawn, the plot draws you in, and you fall in love with the characters somehow... Expect friendship, family elements, and romance. Yes. The characters are so well developed!

This has to be one of the best manga series of all time and if you haven't read it you better start now! The story centers around Yuki Cross, the adopted daughter of Cross Academy's Headmaster. She works alongside Zero Kiryu to keep the secret of the school a...well...secret. The secret in question? The entire Night Class is filled with teenage Vampires, every one of them extremely beautiful and dangerous. Now when one thinks of a teenage Vampire story one says "Twilight!" but this story is better than Twilight by far. True there are some striking similarities but this story has a twist which you will have to read the series to find out! The art in this manga is absolutely stunning from the characters to the setting itself! My favorite character is Kaname Kuran. Vampires are notorious for being utterly sexy and the Vampires of Vampire Knight are no exception! If you love shoujo manga and vampires, check this one out as soon as you can! I also recommend it for fans of the Twilight Saga! Also, watch the anime as it is just as beautiful as the manga!
Having never heard of this manga before reading the back-cover blurb on Amazon, I was intrigued at the idea of a school where a Day Class and a Night Class try to live side by side with the Day Class never finding out that the Night Class is made up of vampires. I had no idea how much I would love the manga as it progressed. I've never thought myself a huge fan of vampires, but there is something infinitely sexy about them. That aspect truly comes across in this beautifully drawn manga. On top of the that, the story line is less comic than many shoujo manga and it's rather refreshing from the comic, light-hearted shoujo. Perhaps that's why I like it even more. I would certainly suggest reading this if you like shoujo manga, this is one you have to read. Check out the anime, too, if you have time. It does a great job of telling the manga story.
