Thumbs up

All around, a great introduction into the series. It covered a lot of ground: introduced major characters, alluded to mysterious back stories, and set up relationship conflicts between the major characters and also between the major characters and some minor characters all with pretty eye candy and chibi comic relief. The OP sequence seems standard. But the ED sequence and song creeps me out. It manages to be simple and yet chill-inducing, all the more so because it is a simple sequence. Thumbs up for a satisfying first episode.

Wow....Studio Deen has REALLY outdone themselves this time!

Zeroooo. <3 Zero's expressions are really great. Yuuki is so cute too!

.......*pushes Kaname away from Yuuki* Though I admit, he's much better-looking than the manga Kaname. But NO! I refuse to become a Kaname fangirl!

Oh about his name....normally, I'd argue that is HAS to be Kuran since it is in kanji and not katakana, yet Matsuri (the manga-ka) is odd about their names. Zero's name kanji is 零, yet it's still pronounced ゼロ. So who the heck knows but Matsuri.

The ending....is creeeepy.

Hrm, just watched the first episode... and can't have an opinion yet, not much happened, so I'll give it a few more episodes before formulating an opinion.

You need to keep in mind that the good Gonzo shows are usually the ones with solid background material --- Special A being one of them. I really don't see how they can miss up after the pretty well done first episode.

Anyway, as i said i have high hopes for the Vampire Knight adaptation, just that i can see the animation dropping sometime soon.

ANN also has it under comedy but I don't quite agree with that, despite the first episode comedy inserts.

ANN lists it as "drama, romance, supernatural"......

The manga is published by Hakusensha ... most of their titles seem to be shounen or something close by (includes Ai Yori Aoshi for example).

I'm always curious why the japanese label genre matters since has more to do with who published it than the actual content matter.

The Japanese genre labels (shounen, shoujo, josei, seinen) indicate the target audience rather than the story's true genre. Having said that, Vampire Knight runs in the monthly magazine Lala which is squarely aimed at the shoujo marketing demographic not the shounen one.

Seen as they haven't listed "comedy" as a genre, maybe people will get their wishes for this to be more a more serious theme. (Or that they missed it off).

And I actually just bumped into a kipi cosplay of yuki

Well again Im pretty happy with this so far minus the over comedic parts of it. I must say I love the Headmaster Next to Kaname he's my 2nd fav character in this and he was great in epi 1 XD

^^ Speaking of the comedy, the headmaster is one character where the comedy was spot on. He came across as a fool. But even in ep 1, you see glimpses that say his foolishness is an act.

Yes, the Headmaster is well done, and the hints are really nice. I basically don't have any criticism to the first episode at all. I think it was all really well laid out and conducted; I didn't find the comedic inserts too overbearing. It was funny and balanced out with the underlying dark tone. Having said that, I hope they don't plan to maintain that level of comedy for the rest of the series because that certainly would not work.

ED, yeah. Although it is creepy, it is really good and fits perfectly as an ending to this series.

Also, Zero's character seems to come across even better in the anime (at least for the first episode), in my opinion.

I saw episode 1! I think I might like this. I saw a mistake in Shoku-dan's sub though. They forgot to translate one line when Zero confronted Aibou and Akatsuki during the night. But it's okay. I think I might like this.
