I'm not referring to Kaname and Yuki supposedly being (view spoiler), because I'm 99.999 sure they aren't. (I'll explain more) I'm referring to that fact that Yuki totally (view spoiler) with him even though she "knows" he's (view spoiler)

Two reasons why Kaname ISN'T Yuki's (view spoiler)
1) Kaname says to Zero "(view spoiler)
Okay, much is revealed in this book and the story takes a turn in a direction I didn’t anticipate. I was on edge the entire time!

Yuki’s past and her true self is finally revealed, which could lead her to lose Zero forever. Commitments were made over 10 years ago that could lead Yuki away from Zero and into a life she never knew she was a part of. A war breaks out and the night students ban together to keep the day students safe.

I can’t put this manga down, so on to VK9. I love it!

Okay, I loved (notice the past tense) this series. It was dark and brilliant, and the artwork was amazing. I was especially interested in what was going to happen to Zero (oh my God, he just plain kicks ass, I loooove him) since he clearly loves Yuki, yet won't so anything because he thinks he's a monster. I mean, seriously, I love that kind of stuff.

I was soooo excited for this volume! But then, I read it, and I was very, very, VERY tempted to shoot Matsuri dearest.

Well, that was controversial.

Some readers are inevitably not going to get much enjoyment out of this volume and for others it's going to kill the series stone dead. For me, vampire stories ought to be about exploring the more dangerous, edgier side of human eroticism and so it's hard to deny that Hino has come up with the goods. Not only does this volume drop multiple bombshells about the main characters in the series, it's also by far the most explicit in terms of its eroticism.(not actually di
With such intriguing characters and such potential in the story, it's really really frustrating for me to read the last couple of volumes and continually get the impression that the mangaka has no idea what she is doing. We're taken one direction and then another, and the result is confusion. I suppose the question is whether or not the confusion is intended. I like the revelations thus far in the story, and the plot is certainly unique. I just hope that it can be sustained and not dwindle into ...more

Incest... EWWW!

But amazing twists and loved the story! <3 I love Zero and Kaname both right now. I don't mind Yuuki choosing either of them.

WHAT THE FUUUUUU....?!?!?!?!

(view spoiler)

That certainly is an unexpected, and icky twist. The story is intriguing enough that this wrench in the plot feels unnecessary. I noticed in the last volume that the storytelling felt muddled. I thought my confusion might be due to a sluggish, tired brain, but I noticed that this volume also left me feeling puzzled. It seems the devic

Whoa! Whiplash, slow down! I did NOT see that coming! So many crucial plot twists in this book! A lot of questions are answered, but the entire dynamic of the book changes. Yuki has suddenly, subtly shifted loyalties - well maybe not so subtly - and is now one basically on Kaname's team rather than Zero's. I was still trying to wrap my head around the idea that Yuki is a pureblood vampire who's vampire genetics were sealed away, as well as Kaname's younger sister, but not only his younger sister ...more

Ah, what a soap opera this series is. Yuki's backstory is revealed, but within the reveal is another hidden twist about Kaname's backstory (which I think some reviewers completely and utterly missed, given how upset they were by the surface aspect). Also, this whole series heavily draws on Japanese mythology -- if you're familiar with the story of Izanagi and Izanami, the taboos brought up in VK#8 will be a lot less shocking. But still, there are so many twists, turns, conspiracies, betrayals, a ...more

I know Yuki still cares about Zero or she wouldn't have gone to visit him, but it was an awful thing of her to say when she must have known how he would react to the change in her. That was low, regardless of why I suspect she said it. :(

And put on your darn shoes, Yuki! My grandpa would've been all over her for going outside without shoes! LOL

Quite a surprising revelation about Yuki's past. It will have a big impact on her relationships with both Zero and Kaname. Overall I really enjoyed this issue, but it did get a bit confusing at times.
Well, the truth about Yuki comes out. It seems a little far fetched to me, but I'm mostly reading the series for Zero anyhow... the sexy beast.
Livi loves to read lots
Wholey shit! Most action packed, informative, and worst cliffhanger of a book I've EVER READ!!! I loved it... ;)

The rating and review are conclusion for all of the volumes. Except for the synopsis.

Okay..... I AM SUPER DUPER ANNOYED. True, it's not that bad but the way this story end? Gosh, I cannot. Let's just say I'm not really satisfied with how it ends okay? I don't know how to say it. I didn't enjoy Twilight last time. I didn't really enjoy Vampire Knight too. Maybe vampire story is not really for me.

Hm, talking about the characters in this story. I could say Cross Yuki, the heroin, is a s

Opinião geral :

A história passa-se no colégio Cross, uma escola especial que divide os alunos em dois grupos: A Day Class (classe do dia) e a Night Class (a classe da noite). O que toda a gente pensa, incluído a day class, é que a única coisa que os difere é que quando a classe da manhã saí para os dormitórios á noite, é altura da classe da noite ir para as aulas.
No entanto não é apenas isso. A Night Classe é na verdade uma turma exclusiva a vampiros. Um

Το όγδοο τεύχος της σειράς, πέραν του ότι έχει καταπληκτικό εξώφυλλο, είναι ένα από εκείνα που μεταφέρθηκαν και στην anime εκδοχή του, με τον πιο πιστό τρόπο και ανταποκρίνεται στο φινάλε του επεισοδίου 7 αλλά και στα επεισόδια 8 και 9, καθώς και στις νύχτες 35 έως 38. Από τα καλύτερα τεύχη, τόσο στον σχεδιασμό όσο και στην εξέλιξη της υπόθεσης, με πολλές ανατροπές, εκπλήξεις και αποκαλύψεις.

*I gave this series 4 stars and this review will be on every volume, for my own organizational purposes.*
Vampire Knight is a 19 volume, 93 chapter manga series. That's about five or six chapters- titled "nights", if I'm not mistaken, this entire series is consecutive, it's not hopping around from one month to the next- per volume. While it is a lot to read, it's actually a quick one. I didn't realize how little it took me to read all of this until I finished. Generally, I'd say Vampire Knight i

So there's an EPIC-SHIT-TON of plot-shocks in Volume 8. Like, I didn't think plot twists could get any twisty-er than they did from Volume 7, but damn.

I was wrong! THERE IS THE FACT THAT (view spoiler) TOTALLY HAPPENED! There's the fact that OH MY GOD CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT (view spoiler) WE NEVER SAW COMING! Okay, so, yeah, basically just two big deals with this installment, but come on! Those are

We finally get to learn about Yuki's past and it's a doozy!

Kaname sinks his fangs into Yuki's neck and turns her into a vampire. Only he's not exactly changing her into a vampire. It's more like resurrecting her. Zero drops by just as Yuki is waking and is understandably irate at smelling the blood of two vampires, not just one. He threatens to kill Kaname for turning Yuki, but Yuki stops him. Yuki isn't a new vampire. She's a resurrected vampire. And Kaname is her older brother!

OK, non ho nessun problema a leggere di amori tra fratelli - andate a ripescarvi Casa Willow, per esempio - ma questo mi sembra eccessivo. Che poi, devo marcare gli spoiler? O i lettori sanno già cos'è successo in questo volumetto e in tutta la serie?!

Va beh, calma.

No! no!! No!!!

Kaname non mi è mai piaciuto, troppo altero e senza sentimenti di alcun tipo. Poi si mette a dichiarare che Yuki è la sua ragazza e che tutti i vampiri devono proteggerla. In questo volume, lui riesce a risvegliar
