Vampire Knight, Vol. 13 (Vampire Knight #13)
I was Team Kaname and Yuki.
But Damn does Zero deserver her more. And he aint going to kill her. He loves her too much to do that.
We learn a lot more about Kaname in this volume. He shares his memories with Yuki and she essentially lives his past. I am not the rabid Team Kaname fan that I was at the beginning of the series, but I don't hate him either. This volume shows that he is a much more complicated character than I r ...more
Volume 13 in the Vampire Knight series
Cross Academy is attended by two groups of students: the Day Class and the Night Class. The catch is the Night Class are vampires. Yuki Cross and Zero Kiryu are the Guardians of the school, protecting the Day Class from the Academy’s dark secret. I hadn’t picked up a manga in a year or over a year I’m not sure, but I decided to go out and buy a couple to review and all that. Mangas only take me a day to read and I flew th...more
What the hell's wrong with Yuki?! "I'll accept any punisment"?! Is this BDSM or something? I like Kaname, but he and Yuki are in what I'd describe as an unhealthy, abusive relationship. Personally, I wouldn't have just sat (lied) there and taken it! I would've kicked Kaname's 10,000 year old balls up his bloodsucking throat!
Yuki's been pissing the hell out of me lately...
As for Zero and Kaname, I continually to feel for them equally. I cried for them both i ...more
The character seem to finally evolve a little bit in this volume. Zero visited Ichiru's grave and wondered the humanity left in him. When he met Yuuki at the cemetery, he seemed less angry at her and his feelings towards her seemed to be similar than what they were before she turned into a vampire. Things were still tense between them, but he did seem calmer.
There was also a part of the book in which Kaname's contradictory nature (how he wants Yuuki ...more
Well, the art is beautiful, it's probably one of the reasons why I still stuck around reading the story. All the characters are beautifully drawn and there's a lot of attention to details.
The story itself it's interesting, it has potential, but now things are going a bit downhill. Some plot holes are appearing, things are complicating. And the character development... Things started off well, but now Yuki is just a selfish, desperate girl, with no development.
I was really, really impressed and thankful when I was reading this volume. Why? Because it wasn't the slow, agonizing let's-talk-about-our-feelings-again-redundantly build-up I suffered through in the last two volumes that almo ...more
Admittedly, I might be unfair, and actually the plot twist involving Kaname might have been set up for a long time, seeing he's supposed to be mega powerful\the king of vampires all along (because Yuki is speshul!)
Then again, I really don't care much about the ...more
Maybe it's the translator?
Maybe it's the fact that I need to re-visit this series?
Maybe it's just as obvious as me wanting to punch Kaname in the god dam dick.
I DON'T GET HOW ONE MINUTE YUKI CAN BE THIS LIKABLE HEROINE WHO CLEARLY HAS A FLESHED OUT PERSONALITY, LOOKS OUT FOR OTHERS, KICKS LIKE ALL KINDS OF ASS- AND THEN
OH MY GOD KANAME SAMA
NO GO RIGHT AHEAD, RIDICULE ME AND MAKE ME YOUR SLAVE AND CLAIM OWNERSHIP OVER ME.
Listen kids, that's fine in you're in a healthy bd ...more
This is where things get confusing. Hino has such cryptic dialogue so it's hard to figure things out sometimes.
From what I understand, Kaname isn't really Yuki's brother, he was one of the first vampires and then devoured the baby Kaname...(?) He was raised by Rido incompletely so he had to revert to baby form where Haruka and Juri raised him. At least, this is what I understand.
That's when I get frustrated with Hino's dialogue. It can be really confusing at times and I think wha ...more
The mystery of Kaname's true identity is FINALLY resolved, in a way that is clear and - again - actually makes some damn sense. I definitely get the feeling that Matsuri Hino is totally pulling this story out of her ass as she goes, but this volume was far more inspired and interesting than the last two combined. My faith has been restored enough to conti ...more
Matsuri Hino, es usted una dibujante insuperable pero una guionista pésima.
Su protagonista es insufrible, un ser patético hasta con arma en mano. Su protagonista masculino #1 es machista, manipulador, un hijodeputa al que le arrancaría la cabeza de cuajo con el arma que lleva la insufrible; el #2 no es tan malo, todo sea dicho.
Ande y dedíquese a adaptar gráficamente las historias de otro, porque las suyas... No.
[Y la trato de usted porque pocas veces me he cabreado tanto con un manga. E ...more
One of the better volumes. The flashbacks made this volume particularly interesting. The revelation surrounding Kaname is pointless. In fact his entire presence in this series is part of reason I don't care for the series.
I don't understand the author's motives when writing this series. There are so many different and just better directions this series could have taken. Instead we're left with a semi incestuous twilight where werewolves have been replaced with vampire hunters.
Matsuri Hino was born on January 24 in Hokkaido. She was a bookshop keeper who one day decided to become a manga artist, and all of nine months later, in 1995, she published her first manga title, Kono Yume ga Sametara (When This Dream Is Over), in Japan's LaLa DX magazine.
