Vampire Knight v.1 by Matsuri Hino – 208 pages
Cross Academy exists as an experiment to bring peace between opposing worlds. The day class consists of humans, and the night class- vampires. The Disciplinary Committee makes sure that the day class never finds out the secret of the night class, and that the night class never draws human blood. Beautifully and expressively drawn, one is very quickly "sucked" into the story of characters like innocent Yuki, aristocratic Kaname, and tortured Zero. Plenty of action mixes with dashes of comedy. I watched and enjoyed the anime, at least but for the resolution, but think I will enjoy reading the manga series as much or more for being able to linger over the fantastic artwork.
