Additional Genres: Romance, Sci-Fi Theme: Vampires Additional Titles: Vampire Knight Guilty Based off the manga by Matsuri Hino, Vampire Knight is about Yuki Cross, who has very few memories of her childhood. In fact, she only remembers the day she was attacked by a vampire, only to be rescued by another vampire. That was 10 years ago, and in the now, Yuki is a prefect at the Cross Academy, and the headmaster of the academy is her adoptive father. The Cross Academy is a place that not only accepts humans, but vampires as well, with the two being separated between the Day and the Night classes. Yuki acts as a guardian between the classes to protect Kaname Clan, the one who saved her 10 years ago, whose strong feelings for Yuki, may be hidden in her forgotten past. Alongside Yuki is Zero Kiryu who hates vampire for killing his parents many years ago. 1st Season Opening Theme Song: "Futatsu no Kodou to Akai Tsumi(Two Beats and Red Sins)" by ON/OFF 2nd Season Opening Theme: "Rondo" by ON/OFF 1st Season Ending Theme Song: "Still Doll" Written by MANA and Performed by Kanon Wakeshima 2nd Season Ending Theme: "Suna no Oshiro" Performed by Kanon Wakeshimamoreless

  • Great potential slighly let down by Lead.

    Vampire knight and it's subsequent series Vampire knight guilty is a show that many brush over as the premise appears little bit more "Twilight" than many would like. This almost stopped me, however i have been pleasantly surprised by how intriguing i have found the show so far. The animation is sound, the music is greatly atmospheric and fitting, and the voice actors on the English Dub are well cast. The show creates some brilliant the tension between the vampire's and the hunters association, and there is a whole cast of characters that you long to know more about. The main character, Yuki, however lets story down. Yuki is sweet, caring, loyal, yet a lot of the time painfully vapid and unaware of her surroundings. The most annoying part of this is how much better the series would have been if it were told from the perspective of literally ANY of the other characters. Even the Headmaster who seems like he's on happy pills 75% of the time has a more engaging character than doe eyed Yuki Cross. Overall it is a good show, i only hope that Yuki will get a clue as the series progresses (i am up to series two now, and so far she hasmoreless

  • Yuki Cross's oldest memory is of being attacked by and vampire only to be saved by another vampire. Kaname Kuran is a student in the night class at Cross academy. He is also a vampire and responsible for saving Yuki's life.moreless

    When I first saw this I was amazed at how interesting it was. They vampires aren't your traditional vampires but that's what makes it interesting. This anime is one of the best I've seen in a long time. The characters are all likable and you can't help but want more after seeing the first episode. It introduces you to three people Kaname Kuran, Zero Kiryu and Yuki Cross who's caught in between. Who will win Yuki's heart? I consider this anime to be very groundbreaking and unappreciated. I would recommend this to any anime or vampire fan. Truly a great show.moreless
  • This show had great potential but just didn't do it for me.

    The show is set in Cross Academy, a school with a day class of normal humans and a night class of vampires. It is upto Yuki Cross and Zero Kiryu as prefects (and the only students who know the truth about the night class) to keep the two classes seperate.

    The show choses to concentrate more on the emotional and drama side of the situation than on any action scenes. Although this works for a few episodes the formula of Zero trying to live a normal life whilst turning into a vampire and Yuki pining over Kaname quickly becomes very dull. Although I have to say the end of the second season is avast improvement. It is justa shame that it took so long to get there.moreless
  • the romantic commentary about a teen girl,Yuuki, whose heart is torn between her vampire rescuer, Kaname, and her protector and friend, Zero. The story that follows is full of secrets and suspense that will keep the viewer engaged from first to last...moreless

    one of the best anime series out there. The biggest drawback is its length, of only 26 episodes across 2 seasons (13 each). Still, thoroughly enjoyable and I confess to watching the entire second season in one sitting. Probably not the best thing to do since there isn't any more episodes in the making as far as i know... The plot is thoroughly maintained through out both seasons, with only minor details overlooked are probably due to translation errors rather than actual inconsistencies in the plot (in the 3rd episode, Yuuki says that its her first time in the night dorm, but later in the series, episode 7, Yuuki falls asleep in the night dorm while waiting to see Kaname at the time of the foundation of the school). A huge amount of credit goes to the creator of the manga version of vampire knight, Matsuri Hino (sorry if i got the name wrong). From what I know, there are currently 6 of the books out, with two or more on the way.

    The story is very well mixed with light humour, romance and blood present throughout, keeps many types of audiences entertained constantly. Again, the only real problem that I have with the series is its length, but all good things must come to an end. All in all 9.5/10...

    I'm interested to know about any more plot flaws or indeed if the one that I mentioned is legit, or a translation error... I watched it in Japanese, with English subtitles... comment, please and thank youmoreless
