Overview: On Wednesday I reviewed season 1 of Vampire Knight and now I'm finishing off the show with a review of season 2. Our characters pick up from where season ended with the death of a pure blood vampire and Zero is the one being blamed. The plot thickens however as more and more conspiracies … Continue reading Vampire Knight Guilty Series Review: The Dark Side of Obsession
Overview: One of the few anime I did read the manga of (at a friend's insistence) Vampire Knight is the story of Yuki Cross who's first memory is of snow and blood when her family were killed by vampires and she was saved by the vampire Kaname. Years pass and she now goes to school … Continue reading Vampire Knight Series Review: Tortured Teen Love Triangle With Fangs

Review: Oh, they finally reunited and just to be sure we don't forget that Zero is supposed to be a sassy young witch almost her very first words to the Mercenary make us wonder why he bothered spending all that time climbing a cliff. Firstly, this is clearly a lie given she does need someone … Continue reading Grimoire of Zero Episode 10

Episode 6 … Continue reading Grimoire of Zero Episode 6
