About the Author

A former bookstore shopkeeper, Matsuri Hino burst onto the manga scene with her title Kono Yume ga Sametara (When This Dream Is Over), which was published in Lala DX magazine. Hino was a manga artist a mere nine months after she decided to become one.
With the success of her popular series Toraware no Minoue (Captive Circumstance), and MeruPuri, Hino has established herself as a major player in the world of shojo manga. Her new title, Vampire Knight, currently runs in Monthly Lala magazine.
Hino enjoys creative activities and has commented that she would have been either an architect or an apprentice to traditional Japanese craft masters if she did not become a manga artist.

This story is, I think, a huge departure from "MeruPuri". In any event, there hasn't been any sex (actually no one has even really kissed) but the story is still erotic. Pretty boy vampires, bloodsucking, more pretty boy vampires; I guess those are the right ingredients for an erotic shojo manga. I've been following it in the Shojo Beat magazine because I am way too impatient to wait for the volumes to come out (look how far they've spaced out the releases!) and the story gets better and better. So even though I read the whole volumes in the monthly installments before the bound volumes were published, I still have to buy a copy (that is how hooked I am on this series).

I won't go into a synopsis because that has already been done but this is definitely worth a read. The story is surprising, intense, erotic, dark but very prettily drawn. Not a lot happens in each volume but that is not to say that each volume is boring. It is more like the manga-ka takes the time to convey so much without actions (or even words).

I think the manga-ka shows more depth than she did in "MeruPuri" (and I am not trying to insult "MeruPuri" because I actually enjoyed that story). But comparing "MeruPuri" to "Vampire Knight" is like comparing nonfat yogurt to devil's food cake.

Matsuri Hino, Vampire Knight, vol. 2 (ViZ, 2005)

The second volume concerning Yuki and her classmates shows Hino falling into a trap that maybe most folks don't mind, but that bugs the heck out of me-- an author's obsessive need to retell large sections of the story (leaving, of course, less room for new material). Do we need to be reminded in every chapter that the night class is made up of vampires? (And that's just the tip of the iceberg.) Still, when we do get new material, there's a good amount of character development and revelations of past events that have brought our main characters to where they are, so if you can overlook the retelling thing, this book's just as good as the last one; I'm going to keep going with the series and see where we're being taken, at least. ***

Format: Paperback
This volume of Vampire Knight shows us a bit more about the lifestyle of the Night Class and tons about the relationship between Yuki and Zero.

As it begins, Yuki and Zero encounter a berserk vampire on school ground, but are rescued by two Night Class students - Ichijo, who does most of the talking, and a gaminesque boy named Shiki. As Yuki is slightly wounded Ichijo and Shiki quicky depart so as not to trigger their bloodlust; but Ichijo calls after them that they should come to the Moon Dorm later that night once Yuki's wound has been looked to if they want to talk further about what just happened.

With a sense of foreboding but unable to resist the offer, Yuki arrives with Zero and they're met at the entranceway by Aido and Kain, who escort them into the menacing heart of Moon Dorm to witness the dark secrets of...

A birthday party.

It turns out that several members of the Night Class are partying the night away, as it happens to be Ichijo's big 18th, and he warmly invites both Yuki and Zero in and even offers them some slices of cake. As Ichijo is Kaname's Veep, he presumably got the second largest number of votes in the class elections, and it's not hard to see why. While Kaname seems to inspire sheer awe, Ichijo is genuinely friendly and likeable. In fact, under his auspices the celebration seems downright human, and fun seems to be being had by all in spite of some talk of the incident earlier in the evening. Even broody Kaname apparently thinks enough of him to make an appearance.

Format: Paperback
The Day Class is unaware of Zero's secret--he is a vampire, and has been turning more and more so over the past four years. If they knew the truth, would they be so quick to embrace him as the rising star of their class? And how will the knowledge of what he is becoming affect his relationship with Yuki?

Yuki and Zero get an unexpected privilege--they get to run into town on an errand for the headmaster. Normally, leaving school grounds is rather restricted. Yuki is determined to have fun, even if Zero seems determined to be a killjoy. She wants them to crowd as much fun as they can into this day. He's concerned about returning by sunset, but she reminds him that the Night Class is off so they won't be coming out. No harm in living a little, right? They stop to eat at a café, but when one of the girls who works there mistakes Zero for a member of the Night Class, he becomes agitated, knowing that he smells like them now. He runs off, and Yuki must find him. Only in her search for him, she is found instead--by a vampire!

Headmaster Cross does his best to make mealtime for Yuki and Zero as normal as possible, but his idea of dishes is a bit odd. And bringing up the blood tablets that Zero needs to survive does not enhance that boy's mood any. Ichijo and Shiki of the Night Class invite them to come to the Moon Dorm after midnight for answers to their questions, and Yuki is determined to go, although not so sure Zero should, not in his present state of mind, when it seems as though he is dying to shoot someone. There she learns about the different classes of vampires - from the level A purebloods to the Level E, who are even below the former humans.
