    Very interesting info! Thank you for sharing. \o/

    Seems like Hino gave some thought over the names… like she didn’t pick them randomly, and not only for the main characters.

    "... I want to fall down with you to the very farthest depths ... taint me too Kaname"

    i agree ^^ this was not random names because she liked them or something. even to the names, she gives thought and detail; a window to the character.

    this was really interesting. thank for sharing CandyRoxy cheers
