The last time we left off is when Kaname took care of those pesky Vampire High Council members and hunting down Ichiou himself but in the end left Takuma to settle the dues. It seemed like Rido’s arc ended in the previous chapter and we were then confronted with the conflict between Zero and Yuuki!
There’s not much to summarize in this chapter for it merely is comprised with Zero’s flashbacks. Anyways, just a bit.
Kaname in the start of the chapter uttered enigmatic lines once again and I am not certain so far for whom would that be, Zero, Yuuki?
Undeniably, Zero couldn’t easily shake off his past involving Yuuki. Now as he points the Bloody Rose towards her, he kept on recalling how his life became entangled with that innocent young girl whom he holds special feelings for.
We all know for a fact that he despised vampires much to the point that he wanted to end his ordeal for there’s no difference from them now as he manifested to become one. He is indebted to a vampire with his life salvaging him before he totally had succumbed to the Level E and the shock of finding out sweet Yuuki who turned out to be a real pureblood vampire under circumstances.
Zero’s feelings are mixed up leaving him a heavy burden in his heart and the guilt that holds him back. I’m not so sure if he really intended to finish Yuuki off but he would have liked her to do the favor for him. He must have second thoughts seeing Yuuki’s no different than when she was just an ordinary human with that of her sincere and unwavering gaze.
Poor Zero, I know how hard he might have felt. Yuuki was the only reason he continued to survive and how harsh the truth is that he lived and let lived by and for an enemy!
On the lighter side, this chapter relives Zero’s true feelings for Yuuki, he was indeed jealous of Yuuki’s affection towards Kaname. I was so touched to realize the fact that Yuuki became so sweet and caring because of Kaname as he taught her and there she was radiating those teachings to Zero who turned out being moved unknowingly. XD This was the side of Yuuki I’ve been wanting to see and I got it! Now, I have learned to appreciate more her character.
This chapter also reminded me how painful Zero must have felt when he was witnessing Yuuki declared his love for Kaname in the earlier chapters! Zero, here, share my tissue! *sniff*
