Storyline

Vampire Knight tells the story of Yuki Cross. The earliest thing she remembers is being attacked on a snowy night by a vampire, and being rescued by Kaname Kuran, who is also a vampire. The story takes place 10 years after that event, Yuki is now the adopted daughter of the Headmaster of Cross Academy. She and her longtime friend Zero Kiryu keep peace at the academy, making sure no problems arise between the Day Class (humans) and the Night Class (vampires). However, the peace they try to keep is fragile, and personal feelings begin to interrupt their duty. It's based on the manga by Matsuri Hino, which is excellent. If VK is half as good as the manga, it'll be a great anime. (as I write this it has yet to air) There is some action, but expect more romance from VK. Written by Eden Parks

Gothic Soujo
26 February 2011 | by (Russia) – See all my reviews

I find this anime excellent, though opinions may differ. Matsuri Hino's characters truly enhance this story and make it beautiful. "For one to succeed in writing, an author must love all his characters." Hino gives enough of her attention to every character, preparing tactful subplots so that behind every action lies a sophisticated meaning. She thus creates a sui generis individual out of all of them successfully that they take permanent residence in your hearts. The story has a Gothic base of vampires, allowing a large canvas Hino richly colours with imagination. It's a highly addictive plot line overflowing with bittersweet moments that make you faintly smile as you wage war against your tears.
