NEWS: DVD Release: Vampire Knight Guilty: Part 1 – Episodes 1-4

The second series of the animated gothic-horror romance Vampire Knight comes to DVD, featuring the first four episodes of the 13-episode season that brings the twisted and tragic tale of a teenage human-vampire love triangle to a thrilling conclusion.

Yuki Cross is a general education student at Cross Academy. As a member of the school’s Disciplinary Committee, along with her childhood friend Zero Kiryu, her duty is to keep the infatuated students of the Day Class from chasing the beautiful Night Class students, all while performing the important task of protecting the dark secret of the Night Class – that all its members are vampires!

Each day at twilight, when the students of the Day Class return to their dorm, they cross paths with the Night Class on their way to school, and it is Yuki and Zero’s job to ensure the two groups remain separate. This bizarre arrangement was created in the hope of bringing an end to the long history of conflict between humans and vampires by promoting a peaceful coexistence between the two. But such ideals don’t come easy. Although Yuki believes there is a chance for peace, Zero sees the vampires as enemies, a view that is only reinforced when a member of the Night Class begins to develop an unhealthy interest in his friend.

Burden Of Sinners

After Shizuka Hio’s death, peace is restored at the academy. As usual, Yuki is busy with her duties as Guardian when Zero, who has been gone for quite some time, comes back.

The Eternal Promise

Yuki has a lot on her mind after almost being kissed by Zero. She asserts that she will not speak to Kaname until he admits to Zero’s innocence. While walking around town with Sayori, she comes across a lost little boy.

The Azure Portrait

The Night Class goes to the Aido family’s vacation home during the long break, but Hanabusa decides to stay at the academy because he suspects Kaname had something to do with Shizuka’s death.

Devil’s Awakening

While the Night Class is at the Aido family’s vacation home, Yuki, driven by her desire to stop hurting Zero, tries to regain her memory of the past and becomes haunted by even more powerful visions.

Based on the manga series written by Matsuri Hino (Captive Hearts; Wanted) and directed by Kiyoko Sayama (Angel Sanctuary; Miyuki-chan In Wonderland) Vampire Knight’s twisted tale of a teenage human-vampire love triangle will undoubtedly appeal to anime fans with a taste for the likes of TV’s The Vampire Diaries and the Twilight movies.
