I admit I couldn't help but sympathize with some of the comments already written but I think most of that is because the story isn't predictable any longer nor has it become your cliche vampire romance. Yes it's a little slow but I still believe there is an interesting twist regarding Yuuki, Kaname and Zero yet to come. So read it and just be patient. There is still more that can happen between the three and I hope it doesn't end anytime soon.

This is so frustrating. The story was alright at first, with the day and night class and stuff like that. Yuuki was such a fun character in the beginning together with Zero, and then Hino sensei had to turn her into a vampire. Fine. Then Kaname started becoming more and more like a jerk, with his shallow personality, while Zero became more and more immature. Why can't he accept Yuuki already and just get on with it?! Then, Kaname had to spoil everything again by killing Aidou's father, and disappeared, without telling Yuuki why, and this just shows how selfish he is. And sometime Kaname acts like an old man while Zero acts like a child all the time. But, I'm still looking forward to the next chapter of VK, as always, because Kaname is such a hottie! Yuuki is also very beautiful, and the quality of artwork has not declined at all (in my opinion). Anyway, I hope VK will end soon, and hopefully with a good ending, as this manga has dragged on for far too long. ^_^

Different up until it got all messed up and confusing. I'm such a sucker for really good art,so I decided to try this...moreover,with the vampire hype going around sometime ago,this really caught onto me. But VK had been a BIG letdown; far from what it used to be,thrilling and deeply mysterious. The characters started off well, and the plot thickened as the chapter progressed. Romantic relationships between the trio were even the most exciting. Time skip and Yuuki starts to become a wee bit too serious and self-absorbed about her own duties and blah. She actually turned out more annoying as she

transitioned into a vampire than when she was still human.

Zero was my favorite despite being emotional and all. He managed to prolong that side of his,though,and it seemed like his plans of actually doing anything stops short just as he gets closer. And sadly,no character development...
Don't even get me started with Kaname. Not that I have anything against this character,but,well,I'm just not too crazy about manipulative lovers at all.
Simply put,this was a real drag. The plot isn't going anywhere anymore and it almost seems like the author is still trying to come up with another storyline, so it starts going nowhere. I also have to comment on the huge difference on the art,way back from the first volume from when Hino closely paid attention to the details in her characters...ugh.

This used to be my all-time manga before.

But I don't know what happeneed, its like everything after rido just got all confused and stupid.

Before this was the best manga ever. Personally I think the charector slowed down, and she tried to make new charectors, with little development.

THE WORST CHANGE, was changing her drawing style, before she used to pay attention to the details, but now she doesn't even put the pupil in the eyes.

Personally I wouldn't recommended it anymore, because the farther you go the worser it gets.

This was the first manga I fell in love with. I used to wait for this to come out such was my devotion to VK.

Then it started gettint worse and worse to the point that I totally stopped reading it. Came back just to read the 20 or so chapters I missed till the last one. Wish I didn't actually. Nothing makes much sense anymore and it seems really dragged to exhaustion. And the end is ridiculous. I feel it's a waste that she chose to do things this way.

Used to consider this my favorite manga ever, not anymore, not even close. And it's a shame.

The plot used to be good but after they left the school, it got so boring I couldn't stand it.

Somehow it's dragging on and on and on and on and on and on... And the story now is just 'bleh' I don't even bother with it anymore.

Characters are flat.

After Yuuki turned into a vampire, everything went downhill. She lost whatever it is that made her likable. Zero lost his appeal. And Kaname...I don't want to get started with him. They became extremely annoying.

Hopefully it gets better for the readers who'll continue reading this manga.

This series was a solid 9 in the first arc. But since then, it went downhill. Characters are erratic and regressed. You wouldn't miss much, since there wasn't much plot movement, since Hino seems to focus on sugar coated romance scenes. The art is also not as good, kinda "lazy" drawing.

Nothing has happened for the past 20 chapters.
I'm dropping this cause it's getting boring. All the characters do is walk around and act angsty.

I guess there are lots of people out there who would never read this manga simply because of the vampire hype, twilight and what not. In my opinion this manga doesn´t deserve to be put aside and condemned just because of that.
The story is dark, almost oppressive and very thought through, there are little twists and turns at every corner and I really enjoy reading those types of stories. I´m not a big fan of Hino´s artwork though. It´s too rough and undefined for my taste. There are too many lines and it gives one a very heavy feeling, almost as if the paper itself weighs more than it should.
I started reading this story right when it came out and stopped somewhere along the way, because it´s hard to keep on reading a story where there is just one chapter per month. Not something that kept me hooked, but I guess if you read it in one flow it can get really intense.
