Name: Vampire Knight
Manga-ka: Hino, Matsuri

Licensed: Viz

Summary: The prestigious Cross Academy is not your regular school. There are two classes, night class and day class, the only thing that’s odd is that night class is made up of vampires! Story follows Yuki as she tries her best to keep nightclass’ secret with some help from her friends Zero and Kaname. –mangaupdates

Graphics Rating: 4/5
Plot Rating: 3/5

Opinion: The art is meticulous and detailed as expected from Matsuri. This story is highly addicting. The plot is so original and complicated you’re just always aching for more. The only downfall are the releases. Shoujo Beat releases are really slow compared to the scanlations. Unfortunately the scanlations from volume 7 just got worse and worse. There was suddenly no monopoly on the series and quite a few scanlators scrambled to put out their scans first. This resulted in quicker releases, but horrible translations and worse quality. My biggest hangup is the translations. I’d suggest keeping to the legal released copies to remain un-confused. That’s the story’s only downfall, is it gets really confusing… but I’m almost 100% sure it’s the scanlators fault (Sorry guys, I know you worked hard.) So theres some good triangle action (Kaname!) and VAMPIRES. And who doesn’t love vampires?

Edit Oct 2018 – This series goes so far off the rails in the end I STILL haven’t finished it. Downgrading the rating to a three

Final Rating: 3/5

Extra: There is an Anime and a Sequel Vampire Knight Memories
