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

Starts out okay, but lost me pretty quick
16 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Eh, this show started out okay I guess. Kind of lost me pretty quick though. It isn't completely terrible. It has things to appreciate, but not enough to really keep watching it. The biggest issues are the characters and the plot lines. The main character, Yuki, is a bland, boring, and extremely uninteresting character. Her character mainly consists of being attacked and being useless. As you can imagine, watching her gets quite tedious very fast. The guy she has a crush on, Kanamae, is an asshole. He seems to enjoy being a dick for no real reason. He really bothered me the entire time. The only character that was alright was Zero. He wasn't a dick (without reason anyway) and I felt bad for him when all sorts of awful things happened to him. Unfortunately, one character can't carry this whole show. The plot lines, while maybe not bad ideas, were executed poorly. None of them felt like they had any real weight to them, as the characters never really treat any situation very seriously. When the characters don't care, then I don't care. Like I said, there is good here though. The animation is pretty good and nice to look at, and the music does set a nice tone. That's about it though. Those two good things aren't worth sitting through this entire show. I don't hate it, but I certainly don't like it at all.
