RANT HERE-REVIEW BELOW
I mainly got the Vampire Knight Official Guide for two reasons. One, I want to cosplay as Yuki sometime in the near future and I like to have voom-ins of her outfit seeing as I I would like to make it myself via DIY since I can't sew arms. Seeing as I live Nowhere near ANY conventions, and I also don't have the ability to travel if there was one nearby, I had to have a second reason. Two, I LOVE to draw. Official Guides, Mangas, etc. give me new poses to practice with, diff

Cute, informational, and gives some fun extra details I didn't know otherwise about Cross Academy, like Day Class-Night Class events and the school song. The character profiles are mostly things current readers should already know, but we do learn some fun details like their daily habits, favorite foods, blood type, and they also include characters interviews with questions from the readers and a little commentary on each character from other characters in the manga. While the information about ...more

Still can't seem to get enough of this series. This fanbook gives a nice copy of some new artwork along with character profiles, back stories, side stories, maps, interviews, and a handful of other fun for fans to enjoy. Perhaps a bit more reading than the usual manga as there is more text than picture panels, but worth it for a little enjoyment and series love. There are still plenty of pretty pictures to stare at in the mix.

This was a great little companion to the Vampire Knight manga series. It had fairly extensive interviews with most of the characters, as well as the author, Matsuri Hino. Hino's comments were also pretty humorous! I really enjoyed the more in-depth look at the Vampire Knight world, and I'd definitely reccomend it for fans of the series.

I always like the character books because it has biographies and histories of charachters we don't see in the books. So this was neat. You get to see originals story boards and brainstorms that never made it to the story too. Very cool

It was a nice insight into the series I love so much. It is filled with beautiful artwork and bio's of the character that made me understand them even more. It's a must read for any Vampire Knight fan.

A fabulous book for those interested in anything to do with character design, vampires, and manga! I really enjoyed it. It's not the kind of book that you could read in one sitting as there is a lot of information, but it is a nice book to dip into for a little break.

This was absolutely fantastic! It was very informative; it made a lot of plot details that hadn't been immediately clear to me evident. Not only that, but it was very funny and cute! ^_^

Just a very precise, up-to-date book on the characters and actions occurring in the Vampire Knight series. Plus there's pictures, short comics, and interviews included in this fanbook.

Recommends it for: Fans of the series-who else really?
Some 'new' information, otherwise what I expected out of this 'fanbook.'

Glad I only spent two bucks just to add it to my collection.
