If you love Vampire Knight, then you'll love having this boxset. I appreciate boxsets of series I'm going to watch over and over again because they take less shelf space. The voice acting is great in both Japanese and English. The animation is beautiful. The characters are deep. The story about the politics of vampires is intriguing. The 5 star rating is totally for the series itself. However, I am extremely disappointed in Viz's packaging. While I patiently waited for a boxset to come out, I was annoyed by the packaging. The DVDs themselves are flip discs. In other words, there's no artwork on the DVDs because you have to play side A and then flip it to side B. I hate those kinds of DVDs. They are extremely easy to scratch. It makes me reluctant to buy the season 2 boxset, which I really want. I'm hoping that Viz will make more of an effort and package the 2 seasons into 1 boxset without using flip discs. (I'm not sure if that's the technical name for them. It's just what I call them.) I would have much rather had 3 DVDs and paid a few dollars more than the flips. Also, there was no insert artwork in the sleeve. If I didn't love this series so much, I wouldn't have bothered buying the DVDs. Viz's new approach to saving money making DVDs is making me want to save money not buying them.
