As a direct continuation of the first season, Zero comes back after his disappearance from the academy. Despite her relief, Yuuki, whose past is still shrouded in mystery, wonders what exactly happened to Zero during the separation. As Zero continues having the strange vision that appeared since the day he drank Kaname's blood, he visits the now awakened Maria Kurenai in an attempt to find answers. She only provides him with a cryptic answer that suggests who the true enemy really might be.

In the meantime, vampires from the Supreme Vampire Council arrive at the academy in order to punish Zero with death for his sin of killing a pureblood. However, Kaname intervenes with the council's decision with not only the intention of saving Zero but with another purpose unbeknown to everyone around him.

First and foremost, I write from the perspective of a dissatisfied audience of Vampire Knight Guilty. It was due to my positive opinion of Vampire Knight that led to me to Vampire Knight Guilty and hence my judgement cannot make dichotomies of the two (so I hope you don't mind me making reference to Vampire Knight).

As you'll probably know, VKG continues right where VK left off, retaining much of VK's good qualities at first. The characters from VK/VKG are very well-built and generally three-dimensional enough for me as an audience to relate to and hence enjoy, with the exception of Kaname-kun, who was so perfect read more

Better than season 1, but still dismal. I liked Yuki's post-traumatic stress behavior, which was the reason I gave this season a try. It was a relief having her emotions at the forefront, instead of the previous season where she was constantly consoling the suicidal Zero. I usually enjoy heroines in torment, but they didn't do much with it. She continued obsessing over Zero and repeating the phrase, "I cannot hurt Zero any more than this" in her monotonous internal dialogues. She also kept on chasing after Kaname, begging him to tell her about her past. This dragged on read more

Note: Vampire Knight Guilty is a direct continuation of Vampire Knight more so than a sequel, so it is necessary to watch Vampire Knight first to truly understand Vampire Knight Guilty. This review is only based on Vampire Knight Guilty.

Story: Vampire Knight Guilty is very much a traditional shoujo series about forbidden love. However, through the inclusion of vampires, the series takes on a bit more of a gothic feel which is heavily relied on to hold the viewer's interest. The story is mainly told from the point of view from the female protagonist, Yuuki, and her inner turmoil about her read more

If you enjoyed Vampire Knight, you'll enjoy Vampire Knight Guilty. Mostly because it is the continuation of Vampire Knight, but also because it's more developed than Vampire Knight and contains a better story. It's not that I didn't like the story to Vampire Knight, but that I like the story to Vampire Knight Guilty better.

Story: You know, the story here it's good. And I have told you that I liked the VKG (Vampire Knight Guilty) better than VK (Vampire Knight) It's, I find, very well thought-out. Like any other anime that is based on a manga, it follows the manga, though not always the read more

Anime: Trinity Blood
Has Vampires, and humans. Each trying to work towards a better future. There is also betrayal, mystery, and secrets to be revealed. 
reportRecommended by noneexistent
Anime: Uragiri wa Boku no Namae wo Shitteiru
While UraBoku does not deal with vampires it is shojo series dealing with demons and hot bishi guys.
Both series deals with romance, drama, mystery and Supernatural.
They have good looking male leads and for the fangirls looking for shonen-ai undertones then you'll like UraBoku.

Main Protagonist: Sympathetic individuals torn between two guys, they have a secret past that is revealed later on in the series. Both are named Yuki and both have their helpless moments. Both are orphans that enjoy feeling guilty for anything and everything. Only difference is that in UraBoku Yuki is an effeminate (so cute damsel type) male.  read more

Anime: Dance with Devils
Both anime are reverse harem.
Both anime has a supernatural male lead.
Both anime have romance.
In both anime the main lead are cold but slowly falls for the main heroine.
In both anime the main lead asks the heroine to go live with them in "their world" (although in DvD the heroine refuses to go).
Both are mesterpieces. If you like one you will like the other too!
