Vampire Knight - Matsuri Hino - 1-19 Complete Set - Viz Shojo - 2007 RARE OOP. Cross Academy has a Night Class full of vampires and a Day Class that must be protected from them without knowing their secret. The headmaster's on a mission to end the war between the two sides, heedless of the danger it brings as the two groups pass every day at twilight.
The setup allows for plenty of drama, though, as every day is another chance to lose someone. Yuki Cross knows about the monsters because she was saved from them by one of them as a small child.
She's become one of the school's guardians, keeping the two groups apart no matter how attractive the Night Class is to the Days. Her co-guardian wants to kill the beasts, but Yuki's fascinated by one of the vampires, the one who rescued her years ago.Dark, crowded panels match the subject, with dramatic goth art by Hino (MeruPuri) ramping up the intensity, although sometimes it's hard to tell the characters apart with everyone's glum, spiky faces. Fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer will find much comfortable-the young woman tasked with an unusual and solitary mission, the school setting, the question whether to love or kill the vampire, the drama in worrying over whether a fellow fighter has been transformed by the dark. 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 Captive Hearts, MeruPuri and Vampire Knight, Hino is a major player in the world of shojo manga.
Hino enjoys creative activities and has commented that she would have been either an architect or an apprentice to traditional Japanese craftsmasters if she had not become a manga artist. NOTE: The final volume of Vampire Knight is a limited edition featuring an exclusive alternate cover and mini art book. VIZ Media / Shojo Beat - Illustrated edition (January 2, 2007). All of these are in great shape. I believe in WYSIWYG - what you see is what you will get.
