posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
This year's June issue of Hakusensha's Ane LaLa magazine (cover pictured at right) revealed on Saturday that the first volume of a Vampire Knight memories manga by Matsuri Hino will ship in Japan on June 3. The issue stated that the manga is a sequel series, and that the first volume will feature Kaname as a child. Warning, the following sentence features spoilers for the Vampire Knight series: [The first volume will also feature the appearance of Yuki's children.]
Update on June 3: The first volume of Vampire Knight memories is collecting the several bonus chapters that Hino irregularly published in 2013-2015. The manga that is launching on June 10 is also now formally titled Vampire Knight memories (LalaDX had previously listed the manga's title as simply Vampire Knight). Source: Comic Natalie
The June issue of Ane LaLa also published Hino's "Mattete Darling!!!" (Wait Darling!!!) one-shot manga. The one-shot is featured on the cover in the image above right.
Hino launched Vampire Knight 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.
