The Vampire Knight manga series tells the story of Yuki Cross, a student at Cross Academy, a school created to bring peace to the social and political tensions between humans and vampires. The series explores young Yuki’s foggy past and her friend Zero’s dark secret and the dealings of a powerful pure blood vampire, Kaname Kuran.
Hino is an amazing manga artist, she is a master of her craft. The artwork is simply fantastic and so detailed, the reader can almost see motion in the stationary images. The plot is easy to follow, with delightful little “intermission” comics and chibis (cutesy versions of characters). It’s a typical shojo (manga romance), but very cute and appropriate for junior high-age youth or older.
