Zero Panel!

Comments Off on Zero Panel!

I found this on one of the posts on the Vampire Knight blog. This life-sized Zero panel was made in commemoration of the release of volume 8 of the manga, as well as season 2 of the anime. It’s currently on display in bookstores around Japan, and a list of places is provided in their post. (I so wish I could see this! I’ll be standing there, staring and drooling. XD) Assuming that I didn’t read the last sentence wrongly, it urges the readers not the strip Zero of his uniform, because they’d be at a loss otherwise. I think they should be more worried about people carrying Zero off instead. XD
