  1. I don't get why Vampire Knight is so popular. Matsuri Hino's other works are good, but this one is a mess.

    (Plus, the backgrounds suck. They're blank way too often.)

  2. I remember watching like 8 episodes of the anime and going... "what the hell?" It was interesting. Don't know about the manga though. It's not really that good. LoL. Very Twilight-y.

  3. I think Hino Matsuri is doing a great job, it should be a five star plot. I love reading the manga, as well as watching the anime. :D

  4. @ rukasouen... i totally agree!!!! is a fantastic manga!

  5. i really love vampire knights, i really love it 2 thumbs up. i am addict to it even though i didn't finnish watching it <3
