Vampire Knight Manga Anime Series

Vampire Knight Manga Anime Series
The art is attractive, but something seems slightly off about the facial proportions for the characters. Everyone has too much space between their nose and upper lip. The storyline skips around a little bit. At some points I was a little confused about what was going on because the characters changed locations so much without very much transition.

Vampire Knight (Vanpaia Naito?) is a shōjo manga and anime series written by Matsuri Hino. The series premiered in the January 2005 issue of LaLa magazine and is still on-going. Chapters are collected and published in collected volumes by Hakusensha, with nine volumes currently released in Japan. The manga series is licensed in English by Viz Media. The English adaptation premiered in the July 2006 issue of Viz's Shojo Beat magazine, with the collected volumes being published on a quarterly basis.

Two drama CDs were created for the series, as well as a twenty-six episode anime adaptation. Produced by Studio Deen, the anime series' first season aired in Japan on TV Tokyo between April 8, 2008 and July 1, 2008. The second season, titled Vampire Knight Guilty aired on the same station from October 7, 2008 and December 30, 2008. The anime uses many of the same voice actors as were used for the drama CDs.

The first chapter of Matsuri Hino's Vampire Knight premiered in the January 2005 issue of LaLa, where the series is still running. The individual chapters are being collected and published in tankōbon volumes by Hakusensha, with eight volumes released in Japan as of October 2008. The series is licensed for an English language release in North America by Viz Media. In addition to publishing the individual volumes, the series is being serialized in Viz's Shojo Beat manga anthology. The first chapter was published in July 2006 and it is still on-going. It is licensed for English release in Australia and New Zealand by Madman Entertainment, which has released seven volumes as of October 2008.
