Vampire Knight Volume 1, by Matsuri Hiro

Yuki Cross is the adopted daughter of the headmaster of the Cross Academy where both vampires and humans attend on a different schedule. Along with the studies, Yuki’s duty is to make sure that all humans stay at their department of dorms and the vampires remain in their own. However, Yuki believes that both humans and vampires can coexist and yet remain living their lives peacefully. What she doesn’t know is that the world is a whole lot different and cruel than what her innocent expectations and hopes are.

The summary of Vampire Knight Volume 1, by Matsuri Hirowas the only counterargument I had to read this book since I do not enjoy the fantasy of vampires. But so far in this volume my of affection toward this series remained in a mediocrity level with nothing extraordinary nor blunt to present. The art however was not something that I found normal but rather bizarre. The deeply thick lines around the characters' eyes, especially the vampire, are rather a strange essence. But I am looking forward to reading the next volume in hopes of finding something more intriguing.
