Community Reviews


This manga is great! The first book is really good! It's filled with action and suspense. The plot is fantastic!

Really Good

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.

A Favorite!

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!

An Instant Favorite 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.
