Vampire Knight, Volumes 1-5 by Matsuri Hino

5 stars

Cross Academy is separated into day students and night students. The night students are vampires led the by the mysterious pure blood, Kaname, whereas the day students are human. Yuki and Zero are the school guardians. They basically protect the day students from the night students. This is really all I can say about the story without giving away important plot points.

This is my first manga and the series is fantastic! I really can't say enough about it. With each volume, the character development just gets deeper and deeper. The artwork is so amazing. I really hated finishing the fifth volume knowing that the sixth wasn't available yet. Reading from back to front and from right to left took a little bit to get used to, but not as long as I thought it would. I highly recommend this series and I can't wait to find out how the story progresses!

Hi Jennifer,
I found your blod and thought it was interesting. I haven't heard of this series, maybe because I've had my head buried in my own manuscripts. It sounds like a good read and from back to Front!
Thanks for the info

Desert Rose, the guys are definitely cute! I'm torn between Kaname and Zero at the moment. :)

Thanks Jason!
