Vampire Knight covers
The cover of each LaLa DX issue is commonly dedicated to one of the manga series' currently being published. Vampire Knight occasionally has covers.
Vampire Knight color pages
In each LaLa DX issue, some chapters will have some full-color pages. These color pages are generally printed in the manga volumes in black and white instead of color, so their only color printing might be in the original LaLa DX release. When the color pages are full pages or a two-page spread, they might be turned into posters or otherwise re-released in merchandise. These color pages have been the source of many canon characters' hair and eye color.
Vampire Knight supplemental items
LaLa DX sometimes includes supplemental items, such as booklets or folders. The following LaLa DX items were released for Vampire Knight.
