I love this series more and more with each installment. I need to buy the rest of the series immediately ~runs and checks piggy bank~

My favourite quotes:

"Maybe the reason I managed to live on for so because you were always by side" Zero

"I can't afford to lose you." Kaname

And here are some images for your enjoyment
Zero and Yuki <3

This series keeps getting better and better and Vampire Knight 4 is no exception! I loved this installment. Some of the artwork where Zero and Yuki were depicted together were absolutely magical!

I loved the scene where Zero was tutoring Yuki and she notices something is wrong with him. I just stared at those pages because they were drawn so beautifully. Matsuri Hino is truly a master of her craft, no doubt! The detail and thought she puts into her characters, drawings and scenes is shear perfec

As beautiful and dramatic as ever, this is the quintessential gothic vampire romance manga. This book was wonderful in my opinion. There was quite a lot of plot advancement, at least compared to previous books. A number of new twists evolved in the plot, and a number of burning questions were answered, though mostly just with more questions. The revelation that Shizuka has come to Cross Academy - and that she is Zero's master - and that Zero's brother is also her slave - and that Headmaster Cros ...more
Me ha encantado este volumen!!!


So you know how last volume I said, "Pfft. Who needs plot. GIMME FEELS!" Well, as much as emo-awesome as Volume 3 was, that's how fan-damn-tastic Volume 4 rocked the house down! I don't want to spoil it for you but OH MY GOD (view spoiler) and yeah.

There is a LOT going on story-wise with Volume 4. It is non-copious-stop from opening page and I swear there's like five subplot
Zero knows the mysterious transfer student. She says her name is Maria, but Zero knows she is the one who killed his family, because she bit him and now they have a blood bond. Unfortunately, this blood bond also makes it impossible for Zero to kill her, as he intended. Yuki witnesses the battle between the two, but after Kaname erases her memories of the incident, Yuki decides she must save Zero from becoming a Level E vampire. At the school ball, Yuki leaves to track down Maria and save Zero.

Okay, you maybe thinking "What's wrong with this person, does she only read Mangas?!" The quickest answer would be, yes.

Volume 4 is definitely the favourite thus far. This delves deeper into Zeros past. More so , you meet the person responsible for his current affliction - Shizuka-Hio. In order for a human to become a Vampire, they must be bitten by a Pureblood. But this Pureblood is an enigma, even amongst her own kind. However the greatest revelation is the appearance of Zeros long lost kin.

This is getting crazy stupid up in here!

I wasn't surprised at the "twist" with Maria Kurenai and Zero's background. It seemed obvious to me since she was mentioned. I loved Kaname's outrage and his whole - "we're pure bloods" honor - MK doesn't seem the type to care about treating anyone well. I'm glad the twist wasn't dragged out or hinted at for volumes before being revealed.

Zero's reaction to the twist was stupid and inane. What does he think he can do? He can't seem to face the realities of

« Une nouvelle élève rejoint la Night Class, Maria Kurenai, mais elle a tout de la fille complètement louche. Pour que Kaname demande à ce que Takuma s'occupe d'elle et que Zero ai envie de la tuer au moment même où il la croise, il y a forcément quelque chose qui ne va pas chez elle. Si c'est bien le cas, les prochains tomes risquent d'être beaucoup plus mouvementés que les premiers, un petit coup de pied à l'histoire ça ne fera pas de mal ! »

Et bah j'avais raison ! Et bah j'avais ra

The story gets more interesting by now.

It turns out that the new student is actually Shizuka Hiou, a pureblood vampire who had bitten and turned Zero into a vampire and killed all his families, borrowing her body. The princess shows her true self in front of Zero and Yuki and tells her that she can save Zero from becoming a Level E vampire.

But she wants Yuki to do something for her before she saves Zero, and it’s either Yuki gives herself to the princess or she brings the corpse of Kuran Kaname.

This series is just going to continue to get high marks from me. I think the sooner we all accept that, the happier we'll be. In this volume, Zero meets two people from his past, and Kaname seems to have a hidden agenda.

This is the book where we learn what's really going on with Maria! I don't know why I didn't see it coming, because I feel like I should have. There's the deal between Yuki and Maria and Kaname is pretty awesome. And I feel for Zero, even though he still has a lot he needs to work on. And he's pretty sulky too. But I still love him, and I still feel for him. I also love the side bars she has throughout the book (and the ones in volumes 2 and 3 are equally as awesome).

I am having trouble keeping
Nothing really seems to happen in these short anime segments and I have a tough time telling the characters apart. Considering these major negatives, I like the drawn story and small details like the accent stitching on the uniforms distinguish their arms so artfully. If I was more visual and less literal, I'm sure I would like this series more. I also like the Japanese vocabulary words interspersed in the story of vampires and humans.

I'll pick up the next book when I have the next challenge req

Ne znam koji mi je drazi... Zero ili Kaname?? XD
*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

My memory is so shoddy lately that it would seem I have early stages of dementia. It's only been a couple of months since I've read the third volume, but I could barely remember who the characters are in Vampire Knight, Vol. 4. Honestly, the tense moment between Zero and Yuki when he tutors her made me not even give a hoot who all the other characters are. I really enjoy the tension between those two and hope it intensifies further.

Overall Rating: B+
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

Well, THAT was remedied quickly!

I really, really, really thought that (view spoiler), aka: the woman (view spoiler) would have A LOT bigger role. Guess I was wrong!


It's safe to say this manga moves fast. No beating around the bush. I'm surprised that (view spoiler) so early on in the series. I assumed she would be a central (view spoiler) for t

Maria, the new student, has set Zero and Kaname on edge, for different reasons. Both are desperate to keep Yuki away from Maria. But Yuki is tired of being protected - she even deigns to scold Kaname. Maria is definitely not at Cross Academy for academic ambitions. She wants to get rid of Kaname and use Zero and Yuki as puppets. There are some great action scenes towards the end of this book as things begin to play out between Zero and Maria.

Yuki demonstrates once again how daring and selfless s

This one is turning gewsy as Maria has a secret between her and her unushual body and Zero sences something wrong with her.

Maria has settled a nasty deal between her and Yuki, but two disishions Yuki can not choes till later after a ball between her and Kaname.

Zero also has gotten more blood out of human Yuki Cross; and she can tell somethings going wrong with Zero brinking more blood then ushual.

This series just keeps getting more and more convoluted and ridiculous the more that I read it. For a few reasons...

The art really isn't all that great. Yeah, they are all pretty in a typical shoujo style, but the artist can't vary from like 2 facial types so it's near impossible to tell who is who without having them state their names every time. It doesn't help that all the male vampires wear practically the same uniform either.

The storyline is every bad vampire cliche rolled into one. The sch

Urca, comincio già a perdermi nella storia... L'arrivo di Maria Kurenai mi ha un po' confuso le idee.

E Yuki che vuole farsi mordicchiare da tutti, poi, non la capisco. Avevi appena promesso a Zero che ti saresti donata solo a lui e già cambi idea?! Come sono volubili queste donne. ^__^

Ma continuiamo a leggere...

[Ch. 15-19]

OMG, I loved the beginning of this volume at the dance. I love Yuuki and Kaname. They're like my favorite couple now. While I was reading it, I had tingles in my whole body. So much that I was shaking.

In other news, Zero has a twin brother. Interesting? Why, yes. It's rather annoying to tell you the truth. I honestly can't tell which vampire from each other, and now I gotta know who this new guy is.. (although he disappeared at the end).

The scene between Shikuza (I think that's her na

I thought this book had a lot of action an adventure it also had it's own love story behind it. There was also some really cool villains in this story but I wish I would have seen more on Kuran Kaname. If there were some more action between Yuki and the headmaster because he is her "Father".
SOME SPOILERS** This volume was my favorite. Zero's condition worsens and he must lean on the small but mighty Yuki. This was when I wished for them to be together most. Aside from that, Maria reveals more about herself to Zero. This all comes together to create a wonderful and exciting volume.
