Was amazing, now utterly disappointing   
Rating: N/A
by Silver Fantasy

There is no series I have come across that has fallen in quality so much. Vampire Knight was literally one of the most promising shoujo series on the market - I daresay one of the best shoujo series of all time - and now it has become...I can't even bring myself to say it.

Art: It's normal for art styles of mangakas to fluctuate, but Hino seems like she has lost interest completely (and believe me, it's not just the art that suggests this). I prefer the style near chapter 20 the most, back when it was exquisite and engaging. It wasn't overkill like some shoujo series' art - it was stunning and smooth. The characters had life in their them and everything from the uniforms to the hair to the eyes were paid careful attention to. There were parts left simple but Hino knew exactly what needed to be accentuated and what needed to be given to the imagination. There are no frilly flower screentones but rather very well placed panels and transitions. Proportions, anatomy, fight scenes were all executed well on top of that. Honestly, the art was really impressive (second only to Death Note in my personal opinion) and most people will tell you that. However, after the time skip, it all goes downhill (I mean everything). Sometimes I wonder if Hino draws in her sleep now because the lines are crappy and the eyes don't even have detail anymore. Admittedly she still has a good grasp on anatomy but it's just not as amazing as it was in the first arc. You can easily see for yourself.

Plot: Everything about this series has to be divided into "first arc" and "second arc". First arc would have received a 9.5 score from me. Second arc would be like a 3 or a 4. But let's start with the first arc. The best thing to me about this story is that it doesnít vomit romance on you every other page. In comparison to most series, the progression of romance is slower and only gives you a little bit at a time, but itís always there, teasing you. Even though I may not enjoy the nature of every relationship, they are overall better developed than most others Iíve seen. And of course, the plot was really suspenseful and had me on the edge of my seat for most of it. And then we got into the second arc...

The issues come in when Hino sets herself up for something so great that she becomes overwhelmed by the sheer complexity of her own plot (or potential plot, rather). Itís a web of love, angst, politics, mystery, more angst, lust, deception but is not woven together as tightly as it could have been and Iím sure Iím not the only one who found VKís plot confusing at one point or another. Certain things are not explained too clearly, but Hino does remain the only mangaka who has shown me plot twists that made my mouth physically drop open. Unfortunately, after the climax, the series plateaus and now weíre left with somewhat of a mess, courtesy of extremely poor pacing. I enjoyed the subtleties and suspense towards the first half where she was building up the plot but now itís just anticlimactic, needlessly gray and gives off a melancholy/suffocating aura to the point of being boring in spite of potential revelations on the horizon. If it was like this to begin with, or the transition was smoother, VK would have been spared from a lot of criticism. However, it does give you a lot to speculate and analyze, and has deeper themes than most other contemporary vampire series.

Characters: I see that Kanameís character was meant to be extremely profound/mysterious/ect but unfortunately, I think Hino missed the bullís eye. Heís a really flat character with a really nice pureblood name tag. He barely shows any facial expressions (which I know Hino is very much capable of drawing), not to mention his undying love for Yuuki was kind of force fed to us. I felt it was shoved down my throat most the times. I usually love character with questionable moral codes as long as they are well developed and explained (Iím all for anti-heroes and villains) yet Kaname is portrayed as an idol and way too saintly which directly contradicts his behind the scenes actions. I donít feel enough of a connection to him as a reader, sadly. (Lelouch of Code Geass is roughtly the same type character but I adore him because the writers managed to show his inner battles/vulnerabilities.) Itís a bit of a turn off being told ďthis character is godly and amazingĒ when you see thatís clearly not the full truth based on his actions.

Then we have Yuuki who is best described with the words ambivalent, naïve and incapable, which makes her infuriating at times, though still less so than the many possibilities of shoujo heroines out there. I personally donít care too much about her though I did notice I much preferred her spunky personality when she was around Zero than her submissive one when she was around Kaname. I understand that she shouldnít be extremely decisive in order for the story to move on, but itís overkill. Whatís hardest to swallow for me is Yuukiís inability to question Kanameís authority even at times when she knows he is not being completely honest with her. So much is kept from her ďfor her own goodĒ but she barely makes an effort to find out the truth when he keeps silent about things even after she asks him. If she wishes to be his respected, intellectual equal, she sure has done an impressive job at hiding it.

Zero was probably the best developed at first and he was my favorite in the series, but he too falls short of his potential. Heís believable, but I understand his angst may be a little too much for some readers. And his reaction to the big plot twist near the middle of the series had everyone wondering if he was the same character as before. (Kaname pretty much remained the same, but Yuuki went from average to well below average in likeability.) Furthermore, the side characters are rather underdeveloped and most the time used as filler for when the three main characters are taking care of secret business. And despite that this story mainly revolves around the never-ending love triangle, I honestly donít think any of these three main leads are stable enough to be in a relationship anymore.

VK had immense potential but I honestly think it leaves much to be desired at this point. I might be kind of harsh critiquing it but thatís because of just how much promise it showed in the beginning. Itís still worth trying though Ė at least the first half - just to at least know what everyone is talking - or ranting - about.

Okay, I started reading this manga because about ten different people recommended it to me, and because it's one of the top shoujo manga on pretty much every popularity list I've ever read.

Apparently, popularity doesn't count for much anymore.

I got to chapter forty-three, and just couldn't keep reading. It was alright at first, but it's just been a downward spiral since. Even the bishies can't keep me into it any more.

Yes, the art is pretty good. Yes, the plot is pretty original. Yes, it isn't just another love triangle. And yes, it does have uber-sexy, we-don't-drink-blood vampire-bishies.
But the plot drags, and there's no comic relief - it's all drama. The main character is annoying, perfect, and a major Mary-Sue (and the other characters aren't so very flawed either), and all three of the major characters (Yuki, Kaname, Zero) have traumatic pasts they just can't seem to let go of, which is boring and annoying to no end.(Um, did anyone else just think 'Twilight'? Sorry, I had to say it.)

I totally agree with all the points Synthoxide and Aristocrat have made. If you're looking for something truly entertaining, with great characters and a killer plot, this manga almost definitely isn't for you. ...But if you just want to look at cute bishies and don't particularly care what they're doing or how annoying they are, go ahead and read.

I, personally, am going to have to drop this, and go look for something with a little more depth, or at least something I can laugh at.

This is getting really tedious. It's still good, but I need it to end. Now it's doing that thing that everyone hates - crawling so slowly through a plot, you can't help but sit there and think 'Is this chapter really important?'

I do like the plot, I'm glad it's not just a love triangle because I don't really believe in those, anyway (chose one or have none, don't push them both through a painstaking process), and yes, there are a lot of pretty faces. And the plot was (key word being was) amazing.

Now the plot is like a downhill spiral, you have no idea what's going on and I'd like to think there was an end in sight but every chapter seems to prove me wrong. I've been feeling that way since the last chapter of volume 10.

I'm trying to figure out what the heck is happening, and yes, I know
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Yuuki and Kaname are related, and that's grand. But if they are basically destined to marry, why in the hell is she hanging on to Zero like that? I understand it's saddening to lose a friend, but treating him as another love interest this late in the game is just wrong.


I pity Zero, but as Aristocrat said, his advances are almost so wrong, that he shouldn't suffer, because Yuki's not picking it up, but Kaname is. It's not funny when your love rival is laughing at you on the sidelines while you pining over a girl who doesn't even know it.

Kaname's my favorite, but he's just becoming insane now. I mean, he was already twisted, but now, he's twisted. You get my drift? And I can't embrace that and say "Kyaa, Kaname's so cool~!!" Instead, I'm sitting here like "Why in the hell did you do that? Or what are you doing?"

Anyway, back to the original point. Every volume after 11 without and ending in sight docks down my points for this. And unless Hino Matsuri-sensei comes back with an amazing ending that WOWs everyone and makes them want to read it again, I just can't see myself feeling that the last few volumes were worth my time. And yes, there were some good scenes, but I'm a plot person, so if in between those scenes there's a funky plot I can't get into, the whole manga is ruined for me.

I suggest reading the first few volumes and stopping at around 40. That might change, so don't hold me to it. Yet.

This was the first manga that really hooked me. I loved the spunky, outspoken Yuuki. I was obsessed over Zero, the ultimate and greatest tsundere to ever be drawn on paper. Kaname was appealingly ambiguous. I was enjoying this story... words could not describe it.

Then Yuuki's mysterious past is revealed,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
her parentage and her vampirism. She transforms not only physically (longer hair), but her personality as well. From being a "guardian" known to defend herself and fight besides Zero... Yuuki becomes a Kuran princess. Her personality was sucked dry at this point in the manga. Any inner-monologue she has is dedicated in love with Kaname (her older brother!) and their romantic relationship.
She became the stereotypical, silent, powerless shoujo heroine who can only sigh and blush when the super popular, handsome and rich hero shows up to make out.

But, I still continued on reading. If you're a fan of something, you usually keep up with it during sucky points. I was positive it was just a bad arc and things would pick up again.

So I waited... and waited... The plot became even more convoluted. Let's kill purebloods, let's work for purebloods, let's kill Kaname, Kaname will kill all the purebloods.

Just... a MESS. I don't know how this went from being my favorite manga to being totally headache inducing.

The heroine is lame, her love interests are an emo boy and her possessive ancient brother.
The storyline does not come close to making sense. Well, there's the art! The art gets better and better.

Okay, this is overall good. When I first read this, it was funny, cute, and original. Basically, it was great. I would've gave it a full score.

But now? It's like all jumbled up with different plots and not so comical anymore.

That' the reason I rated it down.

Overall, this is pretty good: the art, the characters. The bad stuff: plot. Plot affects everything. It is the base of the story. Without it, the story wouldn't a story. Just a picture book of nonsense.

The pun is as awful as the manga. Actually the manga was slightly better than the anime which I watched for a few episodes after I read the manga.

I give it 3 points because...
1) It's well drawn.
2) It's not just a love triangle plot.
3) The story is interesting.

But let's leave the praise there. First off I have problems with almost everyone in the manga except for the side characters. Sure this manga is absolutely wonderful if logic doesn't apply to you. No I don't mean logic as in, obviously vampires don't exist, logic. Let's go with this and see how this seems really really odd...

Yuki is in love with Kaname, well not love per say but has a crush on. Zero loves Yuki and stalks her and follows her about though she never knows because she's an airhead. Okay... that makes sense... but this is when everything gets twisted. Kaname likes Yuki back and it's so apparent and obvious that she's either in denial and actually refuses any thought that he may like her because she secretly doesn't even like him that way (be it because her feelings aren't all that romantic or because he's a vampire).

Let's go with it is because he is a vampire. Now that doesn't make any sense does it because she has no problem siding with Zero over Kaname and here is Zero biting her to death and Kaname saving the day.

Is she an idiot? The mangaka tries to make her a very good and selfless person but at the same time she is the most selfish girl I have ever seen. She tramples on Kaname's feelings and she refuses to let Zero go even if she can't return his feelings because... she's selfish and doesn't want him to leave her side because she thinks he's too weak to even stand up by himself.

And the part where she is attacked by the vampire and drops her weapon out of fear. WHO DROPS THEIR WEAPON OUT OF FEAR?!?! HOW DOES THAT WORK?! I mean first off she was paranoid that vampires were out to get her. She sees a little kid who left his balloon behind and tries to return it to him. The little boy runs off without taking the balloon and she chases after him to give it to him.

Okay here is the author making her seem like a good person once again yet failing to do so because it makes no sense whatsoever.

First of all... the kid doesn't want the balloon back or else he would've taken it from you in the first place instead of running away. What makes you think that after chasing him down as he is trying to get away from you will make him want the balloon anymore than he did? In fact if he was a normal little boy he would've been scared out of his right mind.

Second of all if you were so freaked out by vampires one second ago how stupid are you to go running off into deserted alleys like that?

Though Kaname is very pretty, don't get me wrong... he is one creepy guy. The guy is practically moaning her name as he watches her from his window. Not to mention the whole... incest thing.

Zero... OH ZERO... Yes he has every right to be the angriest SOB in the world... but his attempts to Yuki are really pathetic. Everyone here is squealing at his anguish and his desperation for Yuki but let's face the facts here... in real life this is the worst scenario ever because the girl never freaking even knows he's suffering for her. Doesn't that totally defeat the purpose of the suffering bishie?

And finally the worst for last Yuki. The girl who can't has everything all messed up and backwards. Logic has no place in her mind so the only thing that's in her mind is whatever people have said to her and perhaps random flashbacks of the snowy night every five seconds and feeling bad for Zero. Yeah we know you feel bad for Zero, you would be one heartless person if you didn't feel bad for that. I feel like a good portion of the beginning focused on her feeling bad for Zero... and maybe SOMETIMES... you know the guy she likes Kaname, maybe sometime for five minutes during the evening her heart will race for half a panel as she sees him.

Hopeless... I really couldn't read it anymore. Yuki fails as a Mary-Sue. You think she's capable but... no... let's not go over that part again.

The author needs to actually go outside and get a life and see how people actually interact and how the human mind actually works.

However if you really force yourself not to think about the inconsistencies and Yuki's dry dishrag of a personality I'm sure it can be an enjoyable manga with only the bishies, love triangle and dark vampire plots.

However... a normal person who knows something about actual people (and I hope I would know since I'm a Psychology Sociology Major) would find this so confusing and irritating that it can no longer be read.

This started as my favorite series, there was mystery, intrigue, romance presented in a few different ways, the supernatural and a little action too! Then somewhere around the middle (timeskip) things went downhill, it wasn't all bad though, there were parts I enjoyed but on the whole it wasn't as good. And then it became just rushed at the end, especially the last chapter. I was really disappointed, there were many ways to end this but I felt like the mangaka wanted to give everyone an end where they got some happiness, as a result nothing really 'felt'. I wasn't happy, I wasn't sad... I was just lukewarm and a little enraged that such a great series went astray into trying to please everyone and resulted in pleasing no one because it felt so ingenuine.

Honestly speaking, I really did like Vampire Knight, some time two years ago. The gorgeous Vampires and art stunned me, as well as the interesting plot. It was my addiction, but I suppose Vampire Knight got swallowed by all the hype and popularity it was having that it forgot the story. Some of the now boring plot points ("twists", if you speak highly of them) are put together in the most unimaginative way possible.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Everything, in my opinion, tumbled downhill as Yuki became a Vampire. I was thinking, really? Is this a lazy and cliche way to keep the plot going, or...what is it? The execution was also lazy and I just really lost interest in this. That was weaksauce, Manga.

But I held on even after that. There was still hope that that was just one of the worst parts of the manga. I still had faith in this manga. But after that it was still like a snowball rolling down a hill. At first it's slow, but as it gains more snow it rolls faster and faster downhill. Yuki's quirkiness disappeared, and she continues to side with Kaname over and over again, even out of Reason's reach. She's passive and boring, and I swear, nothing happens. Ever. More and more problems pop up, but none of them are being solved. I don't even know why Kaname and Zero are fighting half the time (okay, I do, but...honestly, I'm just reading and suddenly..What? They're fighting now?). Can we have the old "better" Vampire Knight, or can we just have vampires camping around fires, singing songs, jumping over rainbows (and the moon), and generally just a happy end to all this gloom?

I swear, I'm mad at VK like it's my kid or something. Ugh. Though I can forgive, I suppose. And I just realized that my grammar is atrocious. I swear it's because I'm mad...

I loved this manga to death. LOVED. It was my first manga series ever, but Hino has created a tragedy to all Vampire Knight fans.

The Plot
The plot at the beginning was pretty damn good. It had the right amount of suspense and mystery and the romance was developing not to fast but a little slow, which was great. There was action and scenes that made me blush. *Oh those Zeki Scenes* However, and I'm very certain that everyone will agree with me here, everything went downhill when
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Yuuki, the vampire gal, went to live with her brother, Kaname

After that some mysteries were cleared up, other mysteries were brought up and the manga told me things that I shouldn't and didn't even want to know. It was a bunch of irrelevant information. Nothing interesting happened between I think Chapters 40 to Chapter 60 or 70. Except
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
They had that ball, an event that had so much potential, but even then nothing interesting happened.

Then when things start to pick up when
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Yuuki started the Night Class again
but it was just confusing and I had to reread some chapters just to understand what was going on and who did what.
It then began to get interesting when
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
they had that ball and Zero and Yuuki kissed
I loved that chapter so much.
Then IT happened, it changed EVERYTHING
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Yuuki erased Zero's memory of her and was 'deflowered' by Kaname
in Chapter 89. I know a lot of people loved it or hated it, like me, because I'm a fan of Zeki.

It's picking up now, but it's still kinda boring and confusing.

The Characters
Yuuki, used to be my favourite shoujo lead, but her actions just disappoint me now. Before she was all confident and brave, protecting the ones she loved and you would think when
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
she turned into a vampire
she would only get more stronger, right? WRONG. She becomes a too dependant on Kaname and on other vampires. I also hate how she complicates things for herself, especially with the Kaname and Zero feels.

Kaname was the perfect and ideal guy in the beginning, who hid a lot of secrets. However as the story progressed he got darker and more sinister and my image of this sweet and kind guy disappeared. I grown to hate him so much. In my opinion
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
he abandoned Yuuki
which is just sad. I can't really complain about him though, he keeps the story interesting I guess...

Zero, I love you so much. He's the types of characters you just feel sorry for all the time because nothing good ever happens to him. He's emo-like and very sad but uber sexy at the same time. He''s strong and determined that's for sure, telling Yuuki
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
that the next time he sees her he will kill her after she turns into a vampire
I ship ZeroxYuuki deal with it.

Other than that there weren't really any memorable characters other than the Chairman, who let's admit it is only there for comedic relief.

The Art
The art was superbly beautiful in the beginning but then Hino got lazy and in recent chapters, her art isn't as detailed and the characters lack any type of emotion, but nevertheless it's still good, it's just that it's not as great as it used to be.

Overall
This manga has gone downhill which really upsets me ;(
It doesn't have that feeling any more, that feeling when you get when you read each chapter.
I recommend this to shoujo lovers and people willing to skip a few boring chapters. ZEKI FOREVER!

I haven't been updated on the current chapters for a while, but it looks like I'm not really missing anything as the story hasn't progressed at all. I admit, Vampire Knight was one of my favorite shoujos when I first started reading it, but somehow, it just all went downhill. The revelation about Yuki's true identity, the vampire vs. vampire hunters crap, and what the characters have become really pisses me off. Not to mention the dark demeanor that this manga is trying to give off to the readers is getting quite old, it gives me that dark, heavy feeling for some reason.

The characters...I don't think I can emphasize this enough, but I hate most of them. Yuki used to be one of the heroines I really liked in shoujo, she was different and charming, now I think she's just yet again another one of those annoying shoujo girls. Then there's Zero, whom by far is my favorite character in VK, but he also ended up as someone that would make me think, "Oh, here we go again" with all his antics. I don't want to go further and analyze each and every character, so I'll just generalize. The fact that most of the characters here tend to just centralize themselves on one problem about their life really annoys the shit out of me.

Art wise, that's the only thing left to enjoy here. The details are still precise and character and costume design never falls short of expectations.

This is really a waste. It started out as a good serie, but then it just went all down hill. I don't even know why the hell Matsuri Hino is still dragging this out, 15 volumes is way more than enough for some vampire shoujo. However, although I really dislike this manga now, I'll still give it a decent grade as the beginning was really compelling, and it was enjoyable around that time.
