    5 stars Good to finally be able to see Rido Kuran. Hope they will be able to stop him. Poor Zero. Sad that he had to kill his brother. Also sad that he is basically a pawn for the vampires. Kaname and Yuki's relationship is very interesting. Hope they will be able to get to know each other better when they leave the academy. Can't wait to read Vampire Knight volume 10!!!!!

It's a pity things turned out the way they did with Zero insisting he wants to kill all purebloods possibly including Yuki, not that I think he can manage that.

It was left off at such a scene that I'm dying with anticipation. -omgomgomgomg!!!- I'm glad Yuki decided to stay back in the Academy and was there to be on Zero's side, although, like I said, I don't like Zero's take on things very much now. And Yuki's sudden devotion and love to Kaname. I'm hoping they'll work things out, soon. It was quite funny the bit she put in the end where Yuki wants to sit down until volume 10 :D The nxt one should be out yesterday!! :)

War among the vampires continues to threaten the safety of the Cross Academy students. Kaname reveals to Zero what his plans are and Zero much choose a side and commit a horrendous act. These books are addicting. I’m moving on to VK10 because I can’t wait to see how all this ends.

OMG. lol I love seeing the twins when they were younger. :) Ewww. I don't want Zero to eat his twin. -.- Each time she kisses him I'm reminded he's her brother. :/ Spoils it. Why is everyone wanting to eat each other? It's weird!?

    I would write something about this volume but because, after finishing it, I inmediatley picked up the next one I don't remember what happened exactly so it wouldn't be fair. Had a blast reading it tho!

    I'm not sure how I feel about where Vampire Knight is going. Volume 9 exemplifies my ambivalence. It is a rollicking adventure. Rido Kuran, Kaname and Yuki's uncle has been awakened from a deep sleep. He was in love with Kaname and Yuki's mother and killed their father. He is now intent on killing Yuki. Zero has been imprisoned. His brother Ichiru visits him and shoots him with the vampire-killing gun, but it doesn't kill Zero.

Rido Kuran, Kaname and Yuki's uncle has been awakened from a deep sleep. He was in love with Kaname and Yuki's mother and killed their father. He is now intent on killing Yuki. Zero has been imprisoned. His brother Ichiru visits him and shoots him with the vampire-killing gun, but it doesn't kill Zero. It turns out that Ichiru is dying and Zero devours his twin to increase his own powers. This sounds really twisted and disgusting, but it actually makes sense with the vampire hunter mythology. Twins of vampire hunters usually devour themselves in the womb and only one child is born. Zero partially devoured Ichiru in the womb, so he was born as a sickly, weak child. Now Ichiru encourages Zero to finish what he once (unconsciously) started. The Academy is in chaos with Rido's awakening. Evil vampires are popping up out of the woodwork and scaring the day students. The Night students are now protecting the Day students. Headmaster Cross was once a great vampire hunter. Yet he now insists that not all vampires are bad nor should they be killed. He is protecting his school. Finally, you have the big battles: between Yuki, Zero, and Rido and between Kaname and the Senate. It's all very dramatic. My problem with this volume and the way the series is going is that it's become so complex. There are so many characters who look so much alike that it's hard to tell what's going on. I had to read the summary in Volume 10 and read Volume 9 twice to really understand what happened. I also still find the fact that Yuki and Kaname are both lovers and siblings rather uncomfortable. I'm curious to see where Vampire Knight goes, but I'm not enjoying it quite as much.

    No more. Just no. The first five volumes of this series are awesome. Read them. Enjoy them. Fall in love with Zero. Just don't read any further than that. Vampire Knight goes from being a fun vampire-human-vampire love triangle story to being a poorly plotted attempt by the writer to create a political world for her vampires. This is accompanied by awkward art, characters that no one can tell apart, and surprise incest - which is apparently so perfectly acceptable that instead of running to the No more. Just no.

Epic battles are so stuffed with pretty artwork that the story just fails to keep up. I will not be looking for any more volumes of this manga. I've heard the anime is far superior so I may give a couple episodes a try, but in general, I'm done with Vampire Knight.

    This series has gotten weird and all the supporting characters look alike. After nine volumes, I have no idea who most of the people in the character list at the back of the book are.

    Why are these books getting so dull and slow in plot and misogynistic/uncomfortably incestuous in content?

    Absolutely amazing. The anime is good, but the manga is way better! Not gonna leave in any spoilers because I don't want to ruin it for those who haven't read it. This is highly recommended from me to everyone!

(hide spoiler)] With as much drama that happens in Vampire Knight, Volume 9, I should feel pretty excited by all of the action. Instead, I just feel meh. The narrative has become so convoluted that it's more confusing than intriguing. The story has me so lost at times that it feels like I've accidentally skipped a few pages. Another thing that adds to the confusion is so many characters are drawn to look nearly identical. Is that Rido? No, it's Kaname. Oh, wait. It's Toga Yagari. Don't even get me started on Akatsuki and Hanabusa. In all honesty, I don't read this series for its quality writing or groundbreaking ideas. I read it because it's ridiculously cheesy, strangely addictive, and it helps me temporarily escape the seriousness of life. With that said, the direction this series has been headed in the past couple of volumes makes me reconsider whether or not I will continue turning to this as my guilty pleasure read. (view spoiler)[I am no stick in the mud and I've read my fair share of twisted stories, but the incestuous relationship doesn't set well with me. Every time I see those two share a kiss, I throw up a little in my mouth. I did really enjoy the bit with the headmaster returning to his hunter duties. I so wanted to see him turn into this badass hunter, but the moment was cut too short. I hope that we will get to see more of him in the next volume. (hide spoiler)]

She didn't know she was a vampire when she did those things, but she could still try to SHOW Zero she cares instead of just jumping ahead to "We're enemies now!" (hide spoiler)] . 0.o {Reread}

    I feel I'm repeating myself a lot in these reviews, but here's the short version: - Art good - Concept good - Story bad - Characters okay If you love this type of manga, you'll probably don't let that stop you. If don't (especially if you like good and well crafted stories) avoid it.

    Vampire Knight, Volume 9 by Matsuri Hino has hit the saturation point for me. The artwork has characters that look a lot alike and are hard to tell apart. Also, there are 2 sets of twins. Another character (or two?) have taken over the bodies of others. Frankly, I don't know what is going on in this series. The two main and most sympathetic characters are both lovers and brother and sister. The plot thickens but has not clarified.

There is some kind of subplot where some want a senate ruled group of vampires and others want them ruled by the ancient families. The main scene, the school, has lost it's importance. I'm trying to like this but who knows.

    This volume disappointed me. The graphics felt a little messy, perhaps because of all the action taking place, but this volume also felt a little unfocused and fast-paced. It felt as if they were trying to get through the story arc quickly and in doing so it actually took me longer to get through this volume (I found it harder to focus on this volume). I like the characters and since this series is already complete (and I am so far in) I will be continuing, but this was definitely my least favor This volume disappointed me.

So the battle at Cross Academy begins with resurrection of Rido, the awakening of the princess, and the devouring of a twin. I followed the story of the battle, occurring in various locations, well enough through the dialogue. However, I had difficulty discerning exactly what was happening in the battle. The illustrations weren't clear and the onomatopoeia distracted from more than enhancing the story. Honestly, I liked the final battle with Rido in the anime better.

I was scared that when Yuki turned into a vampire that she wouldn’t have her personality because at first she did act dead and didn’t have her happy and stubborn self which I felt like that took away some of my interest even though I do love other characters so , I’m glad that some of her old self came back into this volume !

    I haven't read this series in a while, but had stopped with Volume 8. Continuing with this one was pretty action packed and I enjoyed it. I had to remind myself what was going on in the series, but it was honestly pretty great. I avoided this series for a while because of how popular it became. I'm glad I picked it back up.
