First off, I love the art. I love Yuki's character design. I love looking at the characters, the scenery. Basically, everything about the art style is just fantastic. 10 out of 10.

Now, on to the story.
Even after having finished the series a few months ago, I still cannot help but HATE the ending. With all my might. I just, I just.......I just can't.

All I have to say is, if you want to read a story with beautiful art, here ya go. But BE PREPARED for a looong headache.

It started off really well. The plot was interesting and drew you in. Alas, that did not last. The story just got more and more ridiculous as it went on and at one point the characters become so unrealatable you just want to stop reading. The drawing is beautiful though - you could just read it for the bishounen bigrazz

I feel as if the series should've ended when
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Yuuki turned out to be a vampire. I mean, the the beginning was good, but then it just went downhill. Everything after Yuuki's awakening seemed forced.

It was a big enough twist that Zero was a vampire, but then Yuuki would've be nice for Yuuki and Kaname to live happily ever after and have a few kids, and let Zero be moody for the rest of his life.

Well, after following Vampire Knight since 2008--getting out of touch with it, forgetting about it, not wanting to continue my involvement with its slow-as-molasses-angsty-world-of-Vampire-Knight, I have finally finally finished it and can put it to rest in my complete list.

I don't really have any words of hatred for any of it. No complaints, no spite, no grudges, no harsh words to inflict upon fans or start up an unnecessary argument or arguments. Maybe it's because I'm tired. It's been a long arduous journey reading VK and I bet Matsuri Hino-san has had it rougher. For me, I probably view VK in this light because I was hiding from it for so long, not wanting to face the direction it was going--not feeling comfortable with its new developments. I don't really have much to say for the manga as a whole. I have forgotten my earlier--more strong feelings about the manga and its characters after running away from it and refusing to continue it until now.

MMM...I feel like it has certainly been a crazy ride from what I vaguely remember from it in the past. Reading the rest from where I had left off has been a ride too fast for me to feel much of anything but confusion and bits of a jumbled mess of bittersweet melancholy and many questions I don't know how to form.

I wish it didn't have to end to fast--not that I wanted it to span forever--just enough so things could be wrapped up neatly and explained in the way Matsuri-sensei probably couldn't with the way things were going (I heard that she had to end it because VK began to get low sales and she had no other choice). The ending was a thinker. I had trouble wrapping my mind around the idea of it. It was a bit much for me to handle and I was sad that at long last, it had ended like that. Still, it was probably the best she could do with what she had.

In my heart forever, Zero...< 33...

At first I was unsatisfied, but after reading the whole series again, it made me really believe it was the best- yet bittersweet- ending. One of my all time favorites! I'm just sad to see it end after all these years.

When I started reading this manga, it wasnt that good because it was lk every other typical vampire/shoujo manga; average girl, popular guy (with a secret), a childhood friend, etc.
But later on, the plot rly shocked me when Yuuki turned out to be a vampire, since then VK became one of my FAVORITE manga of all time.
I'm pretty disappointed with the ending cuz im a Yuuki+Kaname fan and i dunt want any of the characters to die.... but it was a great manga overal :D

The Ending was the end of a very long epic.

I hate Vampire Knight, but I also really love it. In the end, I felt as though that was the best way it could have gone. It was a bittersweet closer.

Zero ****, and because she doesnt want to live on without him, she gives her life to Kaname, who she also loved.

I assume that he retained his memories (? Hopefully). Oh and what the girl said makes sense. Yes, I think she was his kid and the other one Zero's. I don't think they were twins, but it can happen, so yeah.

Ahhh, I'm just a little bit sad, ya know?

When I first started reading this manga, I loved it. The anime was just as good, but after a while I dropped it and didn't read it for ages. After 2 years I came back and decided to continue reading it, I'm glad I did. The ending was sort of how I pictured it to be and I am satisfied with it.

although it really did take time for me to finish this manga, over all I like it. The story seemed to go anywhere, but I like the ending eventhough it's not as wonderful as the beginning.

I thought Yuuki will die in the end, having the two handsome boys kaname and zero alone.. I supposed a dramatic ending.. haha but it's not.

anyway it's good to see they were all happy in the end with their own way.

Wow seriously is THE END... Yuki finally end up with zero...i like that...
But...hrmm i feel there a hole in my heart with that kind of ending..
Zero dying just like that...where is the story before he dying??! Where is the happy life that he lead with yuki?? Who are those paired of girl n a boy at the end?? Ok they obviously yuki children..but who is the daddy?? That boy look seriosly like zero... N i read some of the comment said they are it true?? If that is true that mean they were yuki n zero off spring right?? But if that is the truth, what the fuck did they mumbling about at the moment when kaname just woke up,'from my mom to the other father' ??? Am i reading it correctly or wrongly ??? Or maybe they translate it wrongly??
..oh well whatever is finish anyway.... The answer will remain unknown forever...

But i am really glad it is a very interesting manga (exclude the ending of course)

PLEASE GIVE A TRY TO READ IT..DONT JUDGE IT BY READING THE COMMENTS( althought that is what i always do..hahaha)
