Matsuri Hino Launches New Vampire Knight Manga in June
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for Hakusensha's LaLa DX magazine has revealed that Matsuri Hino will launch a new Vampire Knight manga in the magazine's July issue, which will ship on June 10. Hakusensha publishes the magazine every other month.
The announcement above reads: "New serialization!! The curtain rises on a new legend! Bloody legend Vampire Knight by Matsuri Hino" and describes the new series as follows: "Yūki and Zero made their declaration to be together but...!?"
The first chapter will have 50 pages, and the manga will be on the cover of the July issue. LaLa DX lists the new manga's title as simply Vampire Knight.
Hino launched the manga in LaLa in 2004, and Hakusensha published the 19th and final compiled book volume in November 2013. Viz Media published the final volume in North America in October 2014. Viz also released the 2008 Vampire Knight anime series and its Vampire Knight Guilty followup. The manga has also inspired two stage plays.
The manga revolves around Yūki, a high school girl whose unique school features a "day class" of normal kids and a "night class" of vampires. She works with her adopted father and headmaster to prove that vampires can coexist with humans peacefully, but the school — and the vampires — hide many secrets.
Viz Media is also publishing Hino's two-volume Shuriken and Pleats manga in North America. The company also previously published her Wanted, Captive Hearts, and MeruPuri - The Marchen Prince manga in English.
