Vampire Knight v.3 by Matsuri Hino – 200 pages
The story delves into Yuki’s past with Kaname, from the snowy day 10 years ago with he rescued her from a vampire, to being adopted by Headmaster Cross. When Zero is taken in by the headmaster as well, Zero sees Yuki’s connection with Kaname, and hates that a vampire is close to her. In the present, Zero tastes Yuki’s attraction to Kaname in her blood, even if she isn’t aware or won’t admit it to herself. Kaname watches over Yuki as she grows, and agrees to join and help establish the Night Class at Cross Academy, but what is his hidden purpose? Zero is called on to hunt down a level E vampire to show he can still function as a vampire hunter in the human world, and a frail but fearless vampire girl, a transfer student, joins the Night Class. The players are pawns on a chessboard that Kaname moves about, and we are left to wonder what he is planning in private.
