Yuki keeps trying to remember her past and Kaname decides it’s time for her to become a vampire. Brief summary and recommendations inside.
Yuki tries to recall her past and almost strangles Zero. While Yuki tries to remember her past, Kaname comes and tells her that it’s time for her to wake up.
This was a good volume. The surprise twist was pretty good too, but I won’t spoil that because if you want to find out, you should get it from the library or buy it.
The story itself is pretty interesting and there’s a lot of intrigue involving the vampires. Vampire Knight is worth reading if you like shojo romance and don’t mind a little bit of action.
I do enjoy Matsuri Hino’s writing for Vampire Knight. She knows how to writ her character’s inner thoughts and emotions, along with good dialogue, although some of it does have strange syntax especially when talking about “a pureblood’s blood” it just looks strange when written down, but other than a few instances of strange wording, it’s still enjoyable.
The artwork is getting better and the character designs are nice. The fight scenes are pretty good and it’s well worth your time if you like vampire stories and want something a little different from everything else.
As a note to parents, this manga is recommended for ages 16 and up because of sexual situations, adult themes, blood and violence. It’s something to expect because it’s a vampire themed manga. There’s also talk of incest, but I won’t spoil why.
I enjoy reading Vampire Knight and I do recommend it if you want a good manga to read. But I recommend that you try it out first by getting it from the library or borrowing it from your friends before you decide if you want to purchase it for yourself.
