Vampire Knight Series
Yuuki Cross has no memory of her life before the age of five, when she was
attacked by a vampire and strangely enough saved by another vampire called Kaname Kuran. Ten years later she now lives with her adoptive father, Kaien Cross the headmaster of Cross academy - a prestigious private school with an unusual class
structure. The student body is divided into two classes: the Day class, which is made up of ordinary students, and the
Night class, an elite group of 'beautiful people'.
Along with Zero Kiryuu, who was also a victim of a vampire attack that killed his whole family, Yuki plays the role of a guardian at Cross academy. They are the guardians of the school for the purpose of the Night class's secret: the Night class is made up of vampires!
What should happen if the Day class discovered the Night class' secret? And what dark secret is Zero hiding from Yuki? And the ultimate question: Who will win Yuki's heart? Kaname or Zero?

Though it is meant to be a serious and sad anime, the show does have a few humorous scenes. These mostly revolve around Chairman Kaien's over-motherly attitude towards Yuki or Zero's hate of almost anything on campus. The humor is inserted cleverly between less-serious scenes so the process doesn't seem brutal.
The most memorable humorous scenes that come to mind are the ones present in the first episodes where Yuki and the other school prefects attempt to hold back a sea of overly-hyper girls from the Night Class boys.
Even if the events can seem a bit over the top sometimes, Vampire Knight is an enjoyable anime with an interesting story. It certainly brings a new idea to the table, that being a vampire isn't really that easy or glamorous.
People say this anime has a romantic story but, I don't feel the romance at all. Its just not my thing. I dropped the anime after about 3 episodes then I read the first chapter of the manga, which was a little better but I still found it so boring.This anime reminds me of Twilight, LOL! The main character is unbelievably lame and mediocre. I love the mangaka's art though, especially the details on the clothing and backgrounds. <3elisadevelon rated 7.00:
I love vampires and this anime definitely depicted them perfectly but I found the plot quite boring overall. It was revolving around Yuuki - the main character - too much and there were too many twists I didn't like. I suppose that someone who likes romance and love triangles would enjoy this but not me. Moreover, Yuuki was absolutely annoying and I had a feeling it was actually a mistake to focus so much attention on her. She could have played a less signifacnt role and honestly, I think that if she hadn't interfered with the vamps so much, all of the problems would actually be solved much more easily. On the other hand, I realize that the story wouldn't be so complicated and exciting then but I just couldn't stand her as a character. Thumbs up for the gorgeous art and character design and for the beautiful music.xChibiSakura rated 8.50:
I love vampires, so I really enjoyed this one. The art is beautiful, although it can't be compared to the original, but I think the animators did a good job. The character design is also something that should be praised, those uniforms are amazing and I really liked the seiyuus they picked. The continuation, Vampire Knight Guilty, was a little bit boring, though. The episodes felt random and like they lost the thread of the story.SilverCat-sama rated 7.00:
The art is good. The stories... are so-so. Maybe it's because 'sibling-love' between Kaname-Yuuki that kinda freaks me out. Even though they are vampire who wanted to keep their bloodline, or whatever. I also didnt like Yuuki's masochistic expression when she got bite. My favorite in this series is just Zero Kiryuu. N I love Kaname n Zero stories more than Yuuki stories. ^^ Especially the ending scene between Kaname n Zero on the first season XD. But, because the manga isnt finished yet, the anime endings is bad too. I hope there will be season 3 of it.aureawolf rated 5.00:
Meh... I kinda like the art, but the story is pretty stereotypical: good looking guys, strict hierarchy, S/M attitudes, love triangle, heavy issues... There are some scenes with a lot of spice and could have work for better, but no... things kept very predictable and "twilighty".
