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.

The previous series felt like a mad rush to lead up to this one, so this is slightly more mellowed out. Which I found good as since there was a little too much going on with the last series, there were some lose ends. Generally though the story is pretty tantalising and although it is mellower, it's all in a bid to the one penultimate moment, so for me it's forgiveable. I've read others complained of the pacing though for me it's not an issue as we're divulged into more character development. Though I found some aspects of the ending rather confusing, some of 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

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

I began watching the first season, and didn't think the story was very good in the first place--I never really knew what was going on, and overall it kinda sucked. But that is nothing compared to the second season, Vampire Knight Guilty.

I must say, I expected this to get better, but it actually got appallingly worse. I tried to be fair with it, but when I look at it overall, it was just awful. The story barely made sense, the characters didn't have any development, and even if they did, it was really difficult to notice. It seems the creators got lost in trying to read more

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
