It was good... Until chapter 83!

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I mean, who writes a story about a vampire who turns evil?! I didn't get why Kaname had to go all evil psycho!

I might like it later, IF it gets better, so I won't drop it yet!

When i first read this manga and watched the anime, i thought it was pretty good. I could keep up with the story but after the part Kaname left with Yuki in the manga, things started getting confusing. I was really mixed up with what the character's said and what just happened. Its getting more and more weird... It doesn't seem that good anymore. I agree that they should have just ended it at chapter 46 because then a good memory would be left in my mind.

i watched the anime first, and it was absolutely stunning and well done so naturally i wanted more so i went to read the manga. the chapters that the anime pertained to were pretty much identical, no surprises there, but i was really hoping for some more plot development on the kaname x yuki front (i loved the animes ending soooo much).

and i got nothin.

i was hoping for some cute gratuitous lovey dovey moments at least, but i came up with absolutely nothing. the manga has exactly zero appeal after what was covered by the anime. the art is still beautiful, but that's it. it doesnt even really make sense anymore. zero x yuki pairing isnt even all that outstanding. its like all the characters stopped growing, except kaname who just went loopy. super disappointed. whatever arc the author is trying to play out, its not very appealing. not even gonna bother with future updates until i see it's completed.

tl; the anime. dont bother with the manga.

at first it was a great story very interesting but now it's getting really really annoying but i know that the mangaka is doing this cuz she want to surprise readers by something will happen soon and i don't think its going to end now i guess the story is still very long after this stupid things wich does not make sense i think the mistery will be solved soon i hope there will be moments between zero and yuki after chapter 83 cuz now the two of them have the same object now they will return to their old relationship i guess ....well the mangaka doesn't want to end her story quickly and that's obvious because last chapters there were so many unnecessary moments so stupid but im still waiting for her good work cuz i think she's an amazing mangaka because of her old works i still have hope on this manga i wish matsuri will stop fooling around with the story and return to her sense

I used to love this manga, but the new chapters seem forced and boring. I'm ashamed to say that I just flick though the pages untill I find a Yuki x Zero moment and read that.
I hope the mangaka will give this series an ending to be proud of, worthy of all its dedicated fans, and soon.

I LOVED this manga/anime, as Zero has lit my heart aflame. Yet, now, I have absolutely NO IDEA about what is going on other than the fact that Kaname is being an idiot, which hasn't changed throughout this series. Still, great manga if you can follow a choppy plot.

I gave it a 5 because the beginning is truly amazing and caught my attention , they also have nice artwork ; Therefore , the story progressing it - Yuki became a vampire (I don't want her become vampire, otherwise it would be boring) and it's getting worse then the whole series would become typical cliche shoujo . I stopped reading this series long ago ... but I'll try to give a shot once this series completed .

Sorry for my bad English .

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.

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...

This manga should have ended with chapter 46 then that would be a legendary end & a perfect memory for all readers but nooo they let it linger and become meaningless and stupid.

It was good at first and I enjoyed it but now it's just gotten ridiculous. At first when they left the academy I was excited thinking the story would get even better. And then it just got stupid. But I stuck with it thinking "It can't be long now. The author's going nowhere with the plot. It can't be long now before it ends." But it never ends!!!!! At this point it has just become a plot-less jumble of mysteries that never get completely solved! Ugh so frustrating!

I'm giving this a 6 for the very good beginning and its potential to be an amazing story, But it will get no higher than that simply because of the sheer ridiculousness it has turned into.
