Vampire Knight

Post by BlackLolitarose on Sat Jul 03, 2010 5:13 pm

I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!! It is the manga with the:
1. Greatest story in the world that leaves you hanging every time.
2. Greatest characters that can range from dangerous to hilarious.
3. The most beautifully drawn artwork I have ever seen in my life. This stuff should seriously go in a museum.
4. Vampires! Who doesn't love them? If you don't then check Vampire Knight out. Maybe it will change your opinion.
I love the manga! And I should stress the term MANGA. I do NOT love the show. "Why?" you might ask.
1. They screw up the artwork,( which you can tell I LOVE the artwork, so that annoys me more than others.)
2. They try to make it too much of a normal story which it is NOT. But mainly it's the artwork. Might sound dumb to you, but it is just NOT the same with different artwork.
Sorry if I've offended any of you VK anime fans. But mainly, I just get mad at the people who ONLY watch the anime. But if you like it, that's totally awsome for you!
I'm really hoping someone will comment here, since VK is the most amazing manga in the world. But I'm REALLY hoping the discussion doesn't focus on the anime. Not saying you can't talk about the anime! Totally not! I've just seen too many forums where the anime is discuessed and the manga is disregarded. Drives me nuts!
Please appreciate the manga too! >_<
Anyway, I'm done with my little fangirl rant. Sorry if this has been annoying. For a second you probably thought it was Marlly didn't you! (No Marluxia bashing intended. Wink I totally love Marlly. And his flowery-goodness.)

AAAHHHHHHH.
I'm reading the manga right now, while watching the anime!
I'm on chapter twenty-nine, so please don't spoil anything!

...though I already know about Kaname and Yuuki and I accidentlly read chapter sixty-one. XD

THAT IS BESIDE THE POINT.
Anywhooos, I like the manga a lot better than the anime, too, so far. It feels like the anime is just... missing something. But I'm still watching it, because for the group I'm in [the Resistance], you can only use so many manga scans, and most of the MEP parts have to be anime. So I have to get used to the clips. XD

Okay, anime or not, this video takes my breath away every time I see it, and I can't help but love it and totally sob when I see it.



I LOVE it.
There's no way not to.
There's just so much emotion put into it. ._. I completely adore the series. I hope to get all caught up, soon!

But, what happened to Aidou? Ever since he saw Kaname and what's-her-face-Pureblood-lady, he just hasn't been the same. =[

There's no way I'd spoil it for you! But you really shouldn't have read so far when you didn't know what was going on! Lol. But I know you've read enough for me to ask this question. Who do you want to end up with Yuki? Kaname or Zero?
And yes the show IS missing something. The manga just has this... feel.. this magic to it, that you could never duplicate. I just read it and get so swept away... I have read a LOT of manga, but this is how good the mangaka is. There's a part where it shows Yuki and Zero from a couple years ago (this isn't really a spoil, because it's not that important. Trust me.) Anyway, Zero is asleep and Yuki silently strokes his head. When I saw the picture of her hand on his head, I got goosebumpbs. Because Matsuri Hino is SO good. Just the way she drew that picture. The angle of Yuki's fingers and how the sound effect was placed. You coul literally hear the sound of her fingers running through his hair. I'm not kidding. She is that good. And there is no Matsuri Hino in the anime. That's what it's missing.
Anyway, VK has the most compicated story out of any manga I've ever read. THAT is why I love it.
I can be a major fangirl about VK. That's sorta what I'm doing right now... What book have you read to? I'm to number ten. I could finish it online whenever I want. But... I started it as a manga... I want to finish it the same way. It won't be the same if it's on the computer. So I'm gonna wait untill the last one comes out. This year probably. This year.... T_T

ZERO.
ZERO.
ZEROOOOO.
I find Kaname suuuuuper creepy. It seems every time he shows up, he's stalkering around and creeping up on Yuuki in a really weird way. [and I read that far because I heard that Zero and Yuuki finally kissed and I had to see it for myself XD] I mean, I just don't like Kaname - I like him about as much as Zero does. Which is very, very little. I am a Zeki fan through and through. And I cry whenever I read the part where Zero asks Yuuki to shoot him with the vampire gun. It's just so sweet.

Yeah, the anime does feel really empty. But it's easier to edit with, because it moves [and I'm not so good at MMVs, hahah], and because there aren't text bubbles, there are more scenes you can use and such. But I do love the anime. <3

I don't know what volume I'm in - just the chapter, since I'm reading it on onemanga. My parents don't approve of anime/manga so much, and there's only a certain few they let me read/watch. I'm just lucky VK is one of them. So I don't buy any manga or anything.

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!! Another Zero fan!!!!! I absolutely adore Zero! Him and Yuki are one of my favorite parings ever!!!!!!!! But, unlike you, I really love Kaname too. NOT with Yuki though. That is where it crosses tha line. Kaname just has this mysterious quality that makes him very fun to read about. But Zero is my favortie. There's no contest there. And I totatally get that the anime is easier to work with. Makes sense!

Honstly, I'm a little surprised your parents let you read VK (since it IS rated for older teens) Mainly for blood, and well... There's no innapropriate content like THAT (if ya know what I mean) but there are some steamy moments, and cirtain aspect that well... I can't tell you or it will spoil it! (cuz I don't know where you are...) Anyway, that's great that you can read it! And if you want, I know quite a few very appropiate manga titles.

About the Zeki kiss.. I totally understand... I actually didn't know that happened untill the actual moment! I wish you could of seen my recation! I was practically yelling "FINALLY!!!! YEEESSSSS!!!!!!" It was hilarilous. But one of my favortie moments is in the manga. (I'm sure you've read it. It's near the begining...) After the nigth class pary where Zero's teacher show up to kill him and all that... I abostutlye love "The forbidden act." I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. When Yuki just quietly leads Zero to the bathroom and then all of a sudden starts taking her clothes off! I flipped out!!!! That part is so awsome....
Do you happen to hold a softspot for any other non-main characters? I absolutely LOVE Ichijo. He is so funny! I just want to squeeze him!

Blarg, I don't know what it is, but I just REALLY don't like Kaname. Maybe I'm afraid Yuuki will eventually just choose him rather than Zero. Probably why I want him to crawl into a hole and never come out again. XD

Yeah, but I can handle blood, and it's not like most mangas, where all the girls are half-naked and there's tons of cussing and crap like that. Half the time, the blood is so dark, you can hardly tell that's what it is, so it's alright.
This is the page I'm on:
VK Ch. 29/09

I wish I could have reacted better to the kiss. But because I had no idea what was happening, I didn't feel much. Probably because I didn't grow with the characters and jumped right in. I'll let you know my reaction the second time I read it. =]

I really really liked Aidou! But he's changed since he found Kaname had drunk the pureblood's blood. Now, he's not so funny and cocky anymore. =/ But other than that, I really do love Ichijou! He's amazing, hahah! =]

Hmm... 29... That's probably around book 4? Anyway, I REALLY hope the Kaname-Yuki thing doesn't happen. I will probably croak if that happens! And yeah, the blood isn't bad in VK. It's drawn in such a way that... Would it sound wierd if I said "cool"? The blood is just drawn so well...

Ugh. I totally understand about the inapproprate mangas. That stuff drives me nuts. Especiall if it's Yaoi. Do you like Yaoi? I thing is, i'm gonna guess no. XD
You see, I mainly just read manga put out by a company called Shojo Beat Magazine, if you've ever heard of them. They were the ones who translated VK and put it out in bood form in America! I love them so much. They pretty much ONLY put out really good manga. Just about everything I read. (Beast Master too. Heh heh.)
Out of all their manga, they're might be ten that would too innapropiate. But it's probably less than that! In other words, most of their stuff is totally clean! I mean, inappropriate stuff comes up, but there is almost NEVER any nudity.
So honestly, I know a lot that you could read. And I know you would love some of them!
Ya know, I just sort of randomly thought this but, it's really fun talking to you! I've always thought it would be so cool to know you after watching your videos! This is really cool!
~much love~ Wink

Gross. No. I don't like yaoi. Don't support it. Don't want anything to do with it. It really goes against my religion and I don't find it entertaining or whatever. >>

Hahah, I'm glad that I lived up to your expectations. =] I like talking to you as well! =]

I don't like Yaoi at all either! Yay! Another thing we share! Somehow, I hate Yuri even more.

And I'm probably gonna go to bed now, so I'll answer anything else tomorrow!

I am SO glad I'm not the only one who finds Kaname creepy. ZERO AND YUKI FTW!!!!!!

If Zero was a real person I would totally date him..Just saying. When I first picked up Vampire Knight I fell in love with him. :3

I don't really mind the anime. But you are right, the manga is so much better. I also love the artwork so much...Sometimes I sit at my desk, pull out one of my Vampire Knight books, and try to duplicate the artwork. I so want to be able to draw like that. Its so lovely.

I just got tears in my eyes from the video, Thalia. </3

I love the artwork so much!!! But I've never been able to duplicate it! >_< Me and my friend REALLY hope Matsuri Hino-san comes out with an artbook for Vampire Knight!
And yes, I love Zero too! He's so.... HOT. XD Right now, I only own three Vampire Knights. 8-10. Well, technically I own all of them becuase I have every issue of Shojo Beat Magazine that the chapters origianlly came in. But I still need to get the actual books.
I love Zero! XD Although, where I am in the story right now, he's acting a little stupid... But I still love him!

-totallysucksatdrawingandhasnohopewhatsoever-

You know, Zero tends to act really stupid. Especially when he's trying to be such a hero, and I'm just yelling at my monitor, "SHUT UP AND DRINK HER BLOOD ALREADY...because maybe one of these days you'll miss and kiss her x3."

I wish I was able to draw... period. XD All I'm good at is drawing a face, and that is it. I mean, if I even dare go past the shoulders, I screw everything up. XD

Haha! Ugh! I sucked for so long too! I still can't draw vampire Knight, but there is other stuff i can draw. I learned by copying the pictures in manga. But NOT Vk. The pictures are way too detailed. Try something simpler. Also, I could NOT draw Orihime from Bleach at all. But then, I watched a tutorial, and now my drawing has gotten so much better! I would really try watching a tutorial on youtube sometimes. The can help so much!

I do sometimes. The thing is, I don't want to draw manga-style so much - I want my artwork to be a little more... cartoony, but not really anime. But when I do certain pictures, I want it to look more real, like somebody CGed it. So, I don't like watching most tutorials. I do copy pictures though on occasion, and it helps with posing and stuff. Sometimes, I'll print off a base and try to copy the poses, but make them look like my own characters and everything.

Awsome! I'd love to see your art style sometime.

Oh, I'd love to see your style of drawing sometimes! Sounds awsome! (And I wish it was near possible to draw and make it look CGed. Maybe someone REALLY proffesional could do it.)

Maybe I'll scan something one of these days and see what happens, hahah. I do have a nice idea for a new thing I'm working on ~ if I can get arms and legs to not look so awkward, then maybe I'll attempt it. XD

You might find this funny:
THIS is how totally dense I can be. I didn't realize till JUST NOW that the forum comments could have more than one page. So I never saw your reply for me wanting to learn signitures. DX
This is actually the first forum I've been on. (D8) Yeah. I know. I never wanted to be on one before this place, so that can explain some of the stupidiy.
And all I really need to know is how to get something on there. Just ANYTHING. I tried pasting a picture from my computer:didn't work. Tried pasting a link to a picture: Also didn't work.
I don't have photoshop, or anything, so my sig won't be too great. But it would at least be nice to have SOMETHING there. I just can't figure it out.

So, do you mean how to make your own signature [like mine], or to just have something there?

I mean, are you asking how to make one in general, or how to attach one on this forum?

How to attach. It'd be awsome if I could put an original quote, but sadly, no. I just want to know I can attach something. At least then, I know I have options! I'll find SOMETHING to put there.

Oh, easy peasy.

See at the top of your page? Click the "Profile" button. Select "Signatures" from the bar of options. Under "edit signature", if you want to use an image, select the image option. For a quote, just start typing. Then save it. And there you go.

Ugh. I fail at LIFE!!!!! Yeah, I still don't get it. And this is why. I click image, and then go to my pictures and try to paste one there. Except it doesn't work. So then I go to photobucket and try to past one from there. Still doesn't work. Then, I past the URL after image, hoping the picture will show up. Instead of the picture, it's just the URL as a link to the picture. I really don't get it.
On the side it say HTML is turned off. Maybe that has something to do with it. But probably not. It's mainly just my stupidity. I think I'm gonna go off in a corner now...
