Reviews:
  Volume 14:   ?????? <----This is what was going through my head through most of this volume.
I can't even properly review this very well it was so muddled. Good art and loved seeing a few characters but until the end I was often confused. New plot twists happening and without spoilers there is really nothing more I can say. 

Volume 15:  Welcome back, Cross Academy! We get to finally get back to where the series started. Maybe it means the story is slowly getting back on track? After the past few volumes I had been debating on DNFing the series. This has given me just enough to be willing to continue. So the new twist to returning to the school is that Yuki is restarting on the Night class!

I feel like the story is going back to it's roots. Yuki is starting to actually DO something (even if it is small and possibly misguided at times). I still kept wondering what is going on with Kaname though. We have new characters entering the folds and still no real answer. So still lots of sifting needs to be done to try and pull out decent story plot but at least we can find parts once again!

  1. Maybe it will improve in the next few volumes. I've only read volume one, but I liked the concept of the series. I tried watching it on Netflix, but the American voices were too hyper for me...maybe I should try to find the sub instead of dub?

  2. This was a series that I was glad to actually finish. Alot of it down towards the end didn't even make sense. And, the actual ending was really something else.

  4. I always get nervous when a manga has this many volumes...it makes me wonder if the author is just trying to string readers along with no resolution. It does seem intriguing...
