Vampire Knight is a good start. Whilst majorities of the cast are kind of brushed aside, and the comedy elements don't really fit in with the type of the show it's creating, it has immense potential. Already lots of little stories are mixing, the character of Zero is already very well developed and how Yuki deals with the new issues is definitely going to be quite interesting. Combined with an excellent release of audio and visual quality, and a plot waiting to explode, Vampire Knight is so far, so recommended."
