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.


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~
