ah, sorry I didn't know there was already a topic for what happened in chapter 68. new here. :bom:
Bloody Rose: apparently kaname is BR master. the gun recognise kaname when it taste his blood and listen by him when he ask it to release him from veins. If BR listened by him after taste his blood this means the gun taste his blood before - the theory about weapons drank their "master" blood after they are use can be true, special if the weapons have a second form as BR or Artemis.
I just wonder if this 2 weapons have something from kaname too, a part of his.
About the sword: this sword seems to be in kuran possesion too from ages. probably kaname kept some weapons for the kurans.
Possible...I haven't thought of that before, Bloody rose could've sampled blood from Kaname so he became it's master. i think BR and artemis came from Kaname originally, same in the flashback shown in chapter 64
Kaname was the one who named Artemis and both weapons were in his possession during the time the hooded woman finished making the factory of antivampire weapons.
The Kuran sword appeared three times, it seems it has been with the Kuran since the time when Rido resurrected Kaname... Nina's link shows the pic where the sword seen with blood....i think it was the same sword used to kill the baby, and later on the same sword young kaname used when Kuran house was attacked by Rido. Later on he uses this sword to kill Hanadagi and Nagamichi.. I wonder if it's different from the other antivampire weapons like BR/artemis?
so this the one proof that Kaname has the anti-vampire power, his body's powers can kill others...
Then later Kaname says that he should be the one sacrificed and not the hooded woman
...they both share the power... but the anti-vampire originally can be found at Kaname, (perhaps the blood that he had shared initially with the hooded lady-where she had said to him, "Lend me your power"...to be the answer how she obtained the power and his power to be the one with the original anti-vampire power...
@sweetsolace i needed to see the posts, a part of Kaname's condition has been discussed here; http://vampireknight.all-up.com/t422-vampire-knight-68-do-kaname-s-powers-lessen-whereas-zero
ok thanks I didn't know it was already being discussed. ;) what do you mean by "posts"..?
that's right... I think Kaname was the true origin of the antivampire ability due to his experiments in chapter 64. in chapter 62 after the humans expelled him from their village, he sort of hated his existence as an immortal, because people thought he was a monster....i think he carried this feeling until the woman came, and he performed the experiment "to find a way to die"... he used a part of himself in the experiment, and it was only mentioned that it was still ongoing...but i think it was finished, and the result was the antivampire ability. Kaname already knew what he had to do, I think, and that he planned to sacrificed himself for his own reasons (wanting to die) and also to give the remaining humans hope (by giving them the power of the weapons to kill purebloods) but I think the hooded woman knew beforehand and she became sacrifice instead of him.
Kaname was guilty of this I think...So he went to carry on her goals instead of dying..he forge the weapons out of the furnace (ch64. it already seemed like it was following his every commands?? maybe because he used parts of himself during the experiment) and he also taught the hunters the "wisdom" to use the weapons and to have the natural instinct to hate vampires.
juliet wrote:she consumed powers with his blood as it always happens (and this feeding this time seemed to be extended).
So to say that may also weakened him (if he takes the tablets and he has lost a part of his rehealing power). All is IF..if course but..you never know..lol
about that...i noticed that Kaname drained Yuki in chapter 60 right? as punishment for nearly biting zero? ..anyway so then Yuki drinks a bit of kaname's blood to see into his past...right when yuki was about to wake up, Kaname drinks blood tablets??
doesnt make sense he would need the tablets to sustain his hunger when he already recently fed from Yuki large amts of blood. He should be full.
This is someting new! Good observation sweetsolace. It is something that could explain why Kaname's hand looks so "destroyed" now ... cuz he killed two. Also Zero's hand after he killed Rido seems to have the same "side-effects" but in early stage whereas we didn't see it when he only shot Shizuka ...
In overall I believe Kaname has the ability to hold and use the anti-vampire weapons ... the fact that now there are some side effects it could be something common for every user since the anti-vampire weapons seems to suck blood/energy. Or could be a combination of factors ... the twisted tablets reduced the capacity to regenerate, plus the fact that he had to give the final blow to two vampires. We haven't see before Kaname killing by using an AW ...
thank you for the link! i never noticed it was the sword Rido used to kill the baby? ..
about Kaname's hand in chapter 68, the one that looks burnt/blackish, I have a guess that it was not fried or caused by steam/fire injury
in chapter 62,
Kaname's hand looks the same, except for the skin color...here it looks more light...in 67, it looks black, but the drawing is the same.
My theory is that it looks lighter because Kaname just got replrenisment from the baby kaname, and he was healing. In 68 after he killed nagamichi and hanadagi, it looks blackish as the sword took blood from him, or he lost blood or he has problems with healing.
*it couldn't be that Kaname suffered from steam/electrical injury if his hand looks that black.. burn injury of that color would mean there is smoke involve..if its electrical injury it wont have that color.
more like it has some kind of postnecrotic color...the type you find in mummified corpses (usually black).. and the texture of kaname's skin matches that from he was first resurrected, only difference is color.
Kaname can use weapons..he was seen to be able to hold BR, artemis, and the kuran sword. The question if there are side effects to using this, or rather its the adverse effect.
Yuki comment on that chapter when she pulled off zero's thorns that BR was like a vampire when it was sucking his blood.. BR is an av weapon...perhaps other av weapons have this effect, and so does the Kuran sword? hmm
Also wonder why the hunters would have stocks of blood tablets...maybe they use it to replenish their blood since they go on missions..but its weird since the tabs are mainly as substitute for human blood used by vampires. maybe there's a special type of tablet for hunters? or maybe they use the tablets in case side effect of av weapon happens?
about the tampered tablets...you know where it says it interferes with regeneration? i dont seem to recall.
