Hmm... boring. I wasn't interested in the newly presented character - the grandfather - and I found the graphics lacking care and detail. But, as long as Kaname and Zero are in the story, I could never ''dislike'' it ;)
Vampire Knight 3 is a great installment in this series. The intrigue continues to build in this book and we meet a couple more vampires that I’m still trying to figure out. I liked the back story of Yuki and Kaname that was included in this manga, and I can see now why there are many who are Team Kaname.

This book raises a few questions for me, including:
1. Why is Ichijo’s grandfather, who is the oldest vampire in the senate, after Kaname’s blood?
2. Why is Zero sent to hunt a Level E serial kille

Another good book in the Vampire Knight series. Still like the characters. Think mastered reading manga.

Can't wait to read Vampire Knight vol.4!!!!

I LOVE me some character-spectacularness when it comes to my Shoujo. Plot's well and good enough, and we gotta have it, but nothing beats getting to spend just angsty emo-tastic time with our girl Yuki. Throw in some more time spent with Zero and Kaname and I'm all of the euphoric.

Interestingly Volume 3 spent a lot more time focusing on the world, with Yuki kind of feeling pushed to the background more often than not. She was front-and-center, but the story was more about her rather than being

Devo dire che con questo volume ho cominciato ad apprezzare anche Kaname. Diciamo che posso capire se Yuki non riuscirà a decidersi tra lui e Zero, perchè con entrambi ha condiviso momenti importanti. Comunque c'è stata poca azione e poco Zero, per cui 3 stelline

Okay, okay. I kind of start to understand why I loved this manga series so much when I was younger. I'm starting to get a little bit more involved in the characters' lives again than I did in the first two volumes. I loved the childhood flashbacks the most (especially adorable little Yuuki trying to get dressed by herself).

Again, the thing that I deplore about this series is Yuuki's helplessness. Many people seem to be really annoyed by Zero's "emo-ness", but I think it's kind of normal for him

For some reason, this volume seemed really short to me. I think it might be because not much happened. The present day stuff had me feeling a bit disconnected. I didn’t get the big deal with the grandfather and Kaname. Also, I had no clue how to feel about Maria. She came off super sketchy to me. I did love the flashbacks though. It was nice to get some character development on Kaname’s end. The scenes where he visited a younger Yuki every year on her birthday was sweet. I could finally understa ...more

Please do not read this review if you have not read the previous volumes of Vampire Knight.

Volume 3 of Vampire Knight was more of a flashback volume, strengthening the backstory of the characters.

In the first chapter Kaname has confined himself to his room after becoming aware of Zero and Yuki's "forbidden act" (which was revealed in vol.2). (view spoiler)

Synopsis: Cross Academy is a prestigious private school with a secret. The student body is divided into two classes: the Day Class, which is made up of mortals, and the Night Class, which consists of vampires. Most of the students and staff at the school have no idea this is going on, and apparently think it's normal for a bunch of bishounen to hang out only at night. Despite this, the manga is pulled off well. It focuses on Yuki Cross, adopted daughter of the headmaster, and

In this third volume of the Vampire Knight, Zero and Yuki are still keeping their forbidden act a secret (Zero feed from Yuki), causing Kaname to keep to his room and his fellow Night classmates to wonder what is wrong with him. With the arrival of the Grandfather of fellow classmate, Ichijo who says he is just there to see how his grandfather is doing, it appears he is actually there to keep in eye on Kaname.

Also we see flashbacks to when Zero had first met Kaname (all are younger) recognizing

The sexual tension continues to ooze from every page. Hino is an absolute master of showing everything and nothing, creating incredibly erotic situations that occasional erupt into graphic blood feeding encounters that are highly ambiguous in nature and perhaps even a little morally problematic (like all good Vampire fiction!). In other words - it's s still fucking hot.

The steady build of the central plot at the moment is simply introducing new characters and hinting at enmities and rivalries t

I love Manga – it’s special and different when compared to American comics/stories. Manga borders on the silly while having serious moments. This one is no exception. I loved it.

Yuki is the adopted daughter of the headmaster of a special boarding school. The day classes are fairly normal but at night a different set of students come to learn and they are vampires.

Yuki works as the special guardian with Zero. Their job is to keep the vampires a secret and prevent them from harming the human stude

I just love this manga series! I savored this one, looking at all the pictures. It's such a good story. I'm not in High School anymore, but I still love these books.

What was great about this one is that there were plenty of flashbacks with Yuki when she was younger, filling in gaps and rounding out her personality. Also, a couple of new characters appeared in the book - got to watch out for them, they're not quite on the up-and-up.

Love the sidebars that the author puts in periodically. One of th
I had enjoyed the first two volumes a lot more than this one. For some reason, I found this one a little boring. Maybe because I read it so late last night, but I don't think that was the only reason. I didn't find the artwork up to the same level as the first two volumes. The character development didn't feel as though it grew much deeper, especially Yuuki. She just seemed too helpless in this volume.

Fue extremadamente lindo leer el pasado de los personajes principales ¡Yuuki era tan tierna! Ojalá le volviera a prestar atención a Kaname, la soledad de él me parte en dos ):

But I need more and I can't stop.

its great and awesome
I loved seeing more of Yuki's past and Kaname's involvement. The part where little Yuki put her clothes on wrong and Kaname burst into hysterical laughter was adorable and hilarious! Seeing what he did for Yuki and this cuteness has made me warm up to him more and as I foresaw, it has made me conflicted on who I would prefer with Yuki. Kaname or Zero. Why do fictional men have to be so lovely?

Also, Yuki was SO cute when she was little! I like her as she is now too but she was an adorable child.

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

Volume 3 includes Nights 10-14. This whole volume seems to be a filler. It was quite slow and nothing really happened, other than to confirm a weird love triangle between the main three characters (Kaname, Yuki and Zero).

Die Reihe geht sehr spannend und humorvoll weiter. Bisher immer noch sehr unterhaltsam und die unterschwellige Vampir-Erotik peppt die Story zusätzlich auf.

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
