The official Japanese website of the Vampire Knight manga series has announced that the second season of the anime adaptation has been green-lit for broadcast this October on the TV Tokyo station. The 13th and final episode of the first season will run next week in Japan. A Vampire Knight: Cross Academy Broadcasting Club web radio show will also premiere on July 7. On the radio show, voice actors Mamoru Miyano, Daisuke Kishio, Susumu Chiba, Junichi Suwabe, and Sōichiro Hoshi will play their fictional counterparts Zero Kiryū, Kaname Clan, Takuma Ichijō, Akatsuki Kain, and Senri Shiki, respectively.
The anime adapts Matsuri Hino's original manga about Cross Academy, a school where the student body is divided into the "regular" Day Class and the "elite" Night Class. Yuki Cross, the adopted daughter of the headmaster, is one of the few people in the entire school who knows that the Night Class students are vampires. Viz Media has been publishing the manga in North America since last year, and the anime premiered on TV Tokyo on April 7.
