VIZ Media has announced the English dub cast for Vampire Knight, a gothic-romance anime series based on the manga series by Matsuri Hino. The series is set at a school that must host both a “Day Class” of human students and a “Night Class” of vampires, without losing too many of the first group to the second. Lead characters Yuki Cross and Zero Kiryu will be played by Mela Lee and Vic Mignogna, respectively, while Ethan Murray will play Kaname Kuran, a vampire who is president of the Night Class.
