Are you a big fan of the ‘Vampire Knight’ anime and manga series by Matsuri Hino? If so, I’m sure you have your own opinions about who is the hottest guy in the series. The listing below is my own opinion (although I did collect the opinions of several other fans just for some perspective). Whether you agree with my list or not, feel free to leave a comment and join in on the conversation if you wish!
#5 Hanabusa Aido – It was hard to pick between Hanabusa Aido and Akatsuki Kain for the #5 position, but Aido ended up winning out just because he is so adorable and funny. Aido turns into a little kid whenever chocolates are involved, and his puppy dog eyes are enough to melt any girl’s heart. Although he is amusing, Aido definitely has a serious side and is extremely loyal to Kaname, whom he has known since childhood.
#4 Toga Yagari – the talented vampire hunter who is also Zero’s master. This guy just oozes creepiness, but in a sensual way. The eye patch adds to the mysterious aura surrounding him. Although Toga is often insulting Zero, you can tell that he really likes his young apprentice. You have to wonder if Toga is that one who taught Zero to be so sarcastic and cold on the surface.
#3 Zero – ok, go ahead and tell me how mad you are that Zero only received 3rd place. I know most people think he should at least be second, if not first, but this is my list and there are two characters that I think are hotter than Zero. That said, Zero is still pretty impressive. The way he fights his emerging vampire nature and berates himself for his carnal desires is kind of hot. It is also impressive that although he loves Yuki, he is determined to kill her if she becomes a threat (although I wonder if he would really be able to pull the trigger). Zero has a sensitive side, but like his master Toga, he hides it beneath layers of ice cold cynicism.
#2 Kaien Cross – I know many of you will disagree with my placement of the headmaster as #2, but I love Kaien! He is so hot! The way he wears those glasses slightly slid down the bridge of his nose and pouts whenever Yuki ignores him is freakin’ adorable! I also love to see him begging for things (such as Yuki’s attention). Kaien tends to dress in outfits that could almost be considered cosplay at times, which only adds to his attraction in my eyes.
#1 Kaname Kuran – love him or hate him, there is no one as intensely good looking as Kaname. He almost seems like a brooding Lord who belongs in a gothic castle. Kaname is in love with Yuki, almost to the point of obsession and has no problem moving the people around him like chess pieces so that he can get what he wants. He can be cold and heartless to others, but around Yuki he is always passionate and attentive. He represents the kind of single-minded devotion that most women dream of, but will never actually find. No doubt that is much of his appeal.
So there you have it, my list of the five hottest ‘Vampire Knight’ guys. Who would make your list?
