ummm, if you're asking about the fansub, it doesn't exist yet. I'm not sure which fansubs have agreed to do it yet.

Asking for locations of untranslated raw episodes is expressly forbidden by the forum rules (which you might ought to read if you haven't). Hopefully you weren't asking for that.

I praise them for managing to make the designs look as close to the manga as possible. This really looks beautiful, but so beautiful any slight change in the animation will cause a disaster. Looks very promising indeed so hope the quality keeps up

That adaptation was the work of Nishida Asako. She also did the character designs for Fate/Stay Night and Touka Gettan, and actually did completely original designs for Simoun. I have some confidence that she made the designs repeatable, since she was animation director of those other three shows, and knows what can happen to designs in the heat of production.

As for who is going to sub this, the Who Subs What wiki has five groups signed up: Conclave & Diffusion, Shoku-dan, Ureshii, Animanda, Orange-Side Fansubs/VK Scans, Mishicorp.

The animation quality is stellar! It resembles so closely to the manga that makes me squee in delight. I hope this quality in character and background details keep for the rest of the series. (And I hope the series is long. I don't like very long anime series but for once, I actually want this series to be long. XD) One major thing about the anime that I totally love is the animation of the eye colour - changing to blood red in their blood-thirst mode. That's something you can't get from a static black & white manga.

All the seiyuu fit perfectly to each character. When VK was announced to be animated, I was afraid of what type of voices Kaname and Zero will be given - especially when I found out that Kaname's voice will be played by the same seiyuu as Yunoki in La Corda since I didn't like his voice there but now I see that he made slight changes that fit perfectly for Kaname. WHOO!...they are PERFECT! I pretty much imagined Kaname to have that smooth, soft, silky tone with an undertone of darkness. Very nice. And Zero's voice is beyond excellent.

The comedy was well-placed. Unlike some anime where the serious tones are abruptly interrupted by comedy, VK did the transitions between seriousness and comedy quite smoothly. I love the principal's expression when he got his desk fixed by Yuuki.

The music...I'll be the first in line to get it when the OST is out. I love the OP. I think it fits quite well. And the ED theme is quite good too, providing a darker feel to the closure of each episode.

Overall, the first episode meets my expectations and had me melting with all the hot bishies

It starts off slightly light-hearted but gets darker as the story progresses - you can already sense the underlying tone in this first episode.

Yay, Vampire knight is out. It's yet another series that I can go loony about. I also finished the summary for Episode 1 with screenshots.

*now works on the subs with Orange-subs for my editor role once it's all done \o/*

^^ Kaname Clan is how the anime's web site is spelling his name. Kaname Kuran is how Viz spelled it in the manga. Kuran is how most fans spell it as well, I think.

I don't know how Clan/Kuran is actually written in Japanese or how that's interpreted into English but based just on listening to what they say, I think Kuran is a Japanese mis-pronunciation of Clan; since Japanese people can't say "Cl" without adding a vowel sound in between the two letters. Sort of like how Yuuki Cross is pronounced (and sometimes spelled as it is pronounced) as Kurossu (or something like that).

I'm just going to go with Clan for the anime, since that's the official spelling apparently.

Well, not a big fan of the VK manga, so not particularly looking forward to this series, though I'm definitely going to watch it. The artwork though is very good. As good as the artwork should have been for Special A. I really wish the guys had switched studios. Would have much rather seen a dynamite S.A then an outstanding VK. But then thats just me.

Sure, go ahead

1. I didn't know which frame exactly did you want, so I made 2 versions


2. this was rather hard to make within AS limitations; a lot of camera and frames moving, but I finally managed to finish it ^^"

I actually recently discovered this manga and read up to chapter 38. I am very excited it is going to be animated as well I hope that the anime sticks close with the manga. Lately, I've been disappointed with certain anime based off manga, and the huge changes they make, that basically ruin the series for me in anime form

While I agree that "Clan" is probably the closest pronunciation for 「クラン」, the problem comes when we have to say something like "Kaname comes from 'Clan' clan" X(

Although I suppose one can say "Kaname comes from 'Clan' family". Let's just hope that if there's group feud in the story, it'd be between different families of vampires instead of different clans of vampires.

This sucked me in from the first second, even though I have read the manga I still found it really good indeed. Everything was gorgeous, very satisfied with it, hope this keeps up
