Manga Review: Vampire Knight, Vol. 16 [Paperback]

I've finished "Vampire Knight Vol. 16" by Matsuri Hino.

Product Description

Cross over to the night. Meet your knights in shining darkness.

Cross Academy 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!

The Night Class is back in session, but Yuki finds herself quickly becoming second fiddle to Sara Shirabuki.

With Kaname gone, Yuki is now desperate for blood, so Zero offers her his own. Will she break her promise to Kaname and drink from Zero?

Reads R to L (Japanese Style) for teen plus audiences.

My Review:

Yuki is determined to go head on against Sara Shirabuki with the help of Zero's support and her/Kaname's allies including Maria.  They are trying to solve a major crisis which is caused by the bad blood tablets being distributed among the naive Night Class freshmen.  Yuki and Zero reconnect while Headmaster Cross heads out to take Kaname on his own and Aido and Kain have an awkward reunion.

Shiki also plays a major role by taking a major risk by putting his his body and soul in jeopardy trying to save Ichijo from Sara.

It was funny when Shiki nicknames Yuki "Learner's Permit Leader" of the gang and then reveals what he has done.  Really happy with the scenes between Yuki and Zero - maybe they will be really close like they use to be in the beginning.  Hmm kind of worried about the relationship is heading between Aido and Kain.


Thanks Simon and Schuster Canada for sending me this manga to review, greatly appreciated!
