Vampire knight,Vol. 1 (Vampire Knight #1) by Matsuri Hino
Cross Adademy is attended by two groups of students: the Day Class and the Night Class. At twilight, when the students of the Day Class return to their dorm, they cross paths with the Night Class on their way to school. Yuki Cross and Zero Kiryu are the Guardians of the school, protecting the Day Class from the Academy's dark secret: the Night Class is full of vampires! Yuki Cross has no memory of her past prior to the moment she was saved from a vampire attack ten years ago. She was adopted by the headmaster of Cross Academy, and now works alongside Zero to guard the Academy's secret. Yuki believes that vampires and humans can coexist peacefully, but her partner has different ideas...
This was one of my first manga's I read my senior year in HS. It was about vampires, and vampire hunters, and a girl who doesn't know were she really came from, so of COURSE I was interested but what really caught me was the COVER and the artwork throughout the book! This volume has chapters #1-5. Not many in retrospect to the ENTIRE series but it felt like a lot. The are so many likable characters like Aido (sounds like "idol", for a reason), Rima, Headmaster Cross(hilarious step-in father) and Yori( a sarcastic, kick-ass vampire hunter). This bring's us to the... MAIN CHARACTERS. I instantly fell in love with Zero & was rooting for him all the way. I felt like he was really fighting to be good and was learning that their could be love in his life. PLUS he's also sarcastic,morbid, and funny. BUT very broken. I didn't love that Yuki was kinda naive about her infatuation with Kaname. AND Kaname was the typical arrogant, expressionless vampire king i expected. BUT...it worked for me. It was weird but it kept me reading. I LOVED the mystery, suspense, and funny-ness in this book. Their are a few mysteries & secrets in the book. Which I really liked because as each new discovery in the book was like, "WHAT?!?!OMG!! REALLY!" Their were a lot of those moments. PLUS Zero does something that is un-forgivable. PLUS it also made you laugh! That ending was like aww...bittersweet. I was SO torn. I love Zero & hadn't expected him to try what he did. So it shocked me and made me WANT to read the next volume. SO I give it 4.5/5 golden feathers. It's great for first-time manga readers. I EXTREMELY recommend you read this series! =D
