Review: Vampire Knight Memories volume 1 by Matsuri Hino

Please do not read this review if you are not up to date with the main Vampire Knight manga. This does contain spoilers for the main series.

Synopsis:

Immortal tales of the past and present from the world of Vampire Knight. 

Vampire Knight returns with collection of stories that delve into Yuki and Zero’s time as a couple in the past and explore the relationship between Yuki’s children and Kaname in the present. 

After a fierce battle between humans and vampires, a temporary peace was established, but Kaname continued to sleep within a coffin of ice… Yuki gave Kaname her heart to revive him as a human being. 

These are the stories of what happened during those 1,000 years of Kaname’s slumber and at the start of his human life.

My Review:

4/5 ⭐️

I did find this to be a bit hard to follow at times since it jumps around the timeline. Though I particularly liked the segment at the end where the children are telling Kaname what he had missed. The whole story does feel a bit unreliable-narratory only because we then know the kids are the ones relaying info that they were not present for. I get they may have their parents memories but… Still. Overall though I loved reading about these characters again in new situations!

~Me awakening and remembering this manga continuation exists~
