Synopsis

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

Story
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

Usually 2nd season is worse than the 1st one. However, this does not apply to Vampire Knight Guilty. Almost in every category VKG was better than VK. The only thing I liked more in 1st season was OST. Music was good in VKG too, but not as fitting the mood of the story as the VK one.

What was 1st season lacking the most, was not enough character introduction in my opinion. I was rather disappointed that only Zero's past was showed and explained while Kaname's and Yuuki's was left unknown. After watching VKG I can understand why didn't show their past in VK. It does read more

Has Vampires, and humans. Each trying to work towards a better future. There is also betrayal, mystery, and secrets to be revealed.
Hatenko Yugi, “Dazzle,” is a new anime perfect for those finished with VK. The three are in a very similar environment with mysterious, and yet at the same time elegant, fantasy situations that they must conquer while learning about the characters' intertwined and intriguing pasts that shape their personalities and actions now. The characters are also very similar to Yuuki (Rahzel), Zero (Alzeid) and Kaname (Baroqueheat). (The character of Alzeid even looks a LOT like Zero...) The mystery behind their pasts will keep you hooked along with choosing which guy is the best. The situation of dark fantasy adventure with the tsundere romance is strikingly similar!!
As it is produced by the same group as Vampire Knight, Studio DEEN, the animation and soundtrack is also top-notch.
Both have Vampires.
both have romance
Both anime are very mysterious and has a dark tone that can be very disturbing
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.

Male Hero: Kaname and Luca are dark, mysterious and somewhat aloof individuals that show kindness only towards the main protagonist. They're associated with the MP's past and have deep affection towards them.

Anti-Hero: Zero and Kanata are the MP's friend, constantly looked over. They have conflicting emotions towards the MP but they secretly hold affection despite their inner-conflict.

UraBoku has more action and more bishi goodness but it falls slightly flat in the story department. Again it has lots of potential (more so then Vampire Knight IMO) but the series ends abruptly with many unanswered questions.
Both series contain the vampire theme as well as romance, drama, and mystery. There's less action in Fortune Arterial but the romance theme is present. Both series also takes place at a school setting.
