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

A fine piece of work
8 October 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Being a fan of Matsuri Hino's manga of vampire knight, I knew I had to check this anime out. even though the story was changed a lot, I still enjoyed the series, I loved the characters especially Zero, and the art and animation was amazing, it gave out that Gothic sort of feeling. there were times when I laughed and times when I was on the edge of my seat an I especially loved how the chibi was added to this as well and the romance in the anime was not bad either.

Don't listen to people who say it's like the anime version of Twilight because it's nowhere near as bad as that. this anime has more action in it than Twilight and all the characters have emotion unlike Kristin Stewart.
