Vampire Knight Vol. 2 by Matsuri Hino

Main Character: Yuki Cross, school guardian at Cross Academy
Location: undefined
Time period: Contemporary
Genre: YA Manga, Fantasy, Vampires

When Yuki and Zero are in town on errands, Yuki is attacked by an unknown vampire. Zero hesitates, and the vampire is killed by two of the Night Class students. Yuki doesn't understand why vampires would kill another vampire, so she and Zero are invited to Kaname's birthday party at the Moon Dorm at midnight. There they explain that there are different kinds of vampires--the purebloods, the aristocrats, the common vampires, and the former humans. The lowest of the low are the former humans who have become mindless beasts and who must be eliminated. Zero, as a human who is turning into a vampire will one day become one of these mindless beasts. We also learn that the blood tablets do not work for him. Unable to see him in such pain and distress, Yuki urges him to drink her own blood even though that is a forbidden act.
