@Evis thank you very much...
Back to the chapter, apart from the scene at the bed, which is very clear, LOL, the rest things in this chapter actually confused me. Very hard to follow Hino’s script in the latest chapters. I understand that perhaps it’s better to wait for the end (which seems like approaching and then evaluating the plot to see what has happened here).
Remarks though…The pureblood’s scheme…
Suddenly becoming the Ancestress’ savior, huh? It'd be good if he just stayed a murderer. This is the ultimate betrayal, huh, Madam.
My remark here is that these guys hate their guts, how are they going to understand humanity and the reasons for co-existence; which brings me to chacile’s comment.
I've also come to guessing, there might be no other pureblood boss but simply an alliance of purebloods who considered Kaname's plan of giving his heart to the hunter's as betrayal. I wonder if Kaname had foreseen this to happen? I wonder how will the other purebloods try to outwit the most scheming and powerful vampire in existence, and who was actually the victor through the bloody wars in the past and even in the present.
Perhaps there was a scheme, after all Touma had said to Yuuki that the “stage was set for a bloody scene” and that she should not hamper his "enjoyment of watching the drama unfold".
A thing that always made me question “how does Touma knows about it if not collaborating with Sara?”
These and the fact that very few purebloods appeared indeed at the ball, only confirms that most left purebloods would prefer Sara’s action than Kaname’s since that would obviously permit them to take control over humans, because as Sara had stated eternity is a long way if you are not giving into your instincts.
So under this light, of course they would have preferred him a murderer chased by the hunters, than willing to aid the hunter society to protect humans.
If that’s the case, then he knew that he could not stand still in time, and had to deal with menaces so that Yuuki could offer her help, free as she pleased and not stopped by the other purebloods that would stand to her way for many reasons.
I suspect though that the way they shall try to finish Kaname would be the moment that he shall throw his heart in the furnace.
He will be very vulnerable at this time and extreme bleeding with no regenerating powers (since the heart as Sara told holds the most of the powers and this heart shall be in the furnace so he won't have enough power to regenerate fast enough), we know where it can lead to according to ancestor’s death (and that explains and her death apparently).
So in few words, I do not know how they shall do it in that exact moment but there is a gap here again:
Zero’s story has not been cleared. According to Sara’s sayings, a version that Zero believed and Kaname anxious to make the worst of himself confirmed, it leaves an open space, either for Zero to ask revenge on his own or to be in some way manipulated or triggered to do so. This is my fear here. Not having a bond with Yuuki any longer, he may not stop to her calls, unless he gets his memories back at the very last moment.
Now this is a version that I find possible BUT there is always a BUT, I wonder about the volcano scene and what Kaname has really in mind.
Yuuki: As soon as tomorrow, you're going to throw your heart into the furnace... I...
Yuuki's (thoughts) : I'm going to try and release you from the fate of living forever using my own life...
Now this is what Yuuki thinks that Kaname shall remain alone in eternity living a solitude. How does she come to this conclusion?
I guess because Kaname had asked Isaya to change her back to human so that she can live a carefree life and now we know that she knows it.
So what does she think back about this? That she wants to sacrifice her life instead, apparently she is not concerned with having this kind of life that Kaname thinks that it would be best for her. So the meaning of her sacrifice rises in level; she does not want to change him into human in order to stop him from being hurt (that would be foolish as we all had agreed at the last chapter), he is not doing this to stop his action against the purebloods (because she is not even confirmed about that fact and Kaien's presence closes the case there) but she does it so that he shall not have to deal with eternity... At least this is what I understood…
But as Kaname does not suspect that she is capable of sacrificing herself for him, the same way Yuuki does not think that Kaname (imo) shall want to end his life since he will be left without her.
And I am deeply thinking that the volcano could be the destination after offering his heart to the hunters, away from everyone so that no one can get hurt since he made so much trouble wanting to protect everyone (remember Yuuki mentioning his hide-out that he does not reveal?). The good about this scenario is that Ruka and Kain know where it is and Aido can now act again, so there is information available and support in this case, if needed.
Sounds a bit complicated but I can not think of another version this moment. Unless the volcano does not matter at all or is used as a material with the furnace.
As for the bed scene, it sounds like Kaname gave in to Yuuki in that matter, but I do not trust him. Under the light that he can not afford a reality without her, that he has not perceived yet the depths of her devotion to him (after all he saw her kissing with Zero at the ball), perhaps he considers it as a last time together, because after all if Isaya is to change her she wont remember anything.
What more to say in order to explain this mixed plot?
As for Aido-dono, finally we breathed freely along with Aidou that I personally love very much. We were suspecting it since Hino had left clues both in Ruka and Kain’s cold reaction to the murder, to Ruka’s intention to explain to Aidou, saying that he would understood, and also to the fact that many illusions could be made convincing enough even from Ruka, as we saw, nevertheless Kaname.
As for reactions to the chapter my opinion is that Hino never personally made Yuuki to give any promise or hint to Zero that she really wants him or wants to be with him. She had declared to him that she belonged with Kaname and the kiss at the ball is debatable, actually from Zero to Yuuki (without Zero even listening to her thoughts the moment that Kaname arrives and with no sentimental attachment, afterwards. We know that Zero has great antennas, detecting kaname around and also he is the one willing to dance all of the sudden as in being into a role tonight, as Yuuki suggested.
I am not questioning but the fact that it can be seen both ways, because there are no after thoughts later, can be seen many ways.
Also Zero had been a witness to all of Yuuki’s declarations about Kaname ( she runs to him at the academy, the fact that she is asking to kill her with his blade). So can it be that she led him on in order to be a slut?
Even the thoughts that she had after the ball about how it would have been if they were human (thoughts that could be explained by the fact that she knew what Kaname had asked Isaya to do), but nevertheless, these thoughts he does not hear them.
And lastly at the last chapter and in this one, she is ready to sacrifice her life in order to save (and in this chapter is even more evident and clear because we heard all kind of excuses) the man that she loves. There is no more proof that she can give about who she loves best. And this is and what I had considered and as the resume of the last chapter.
You give your life for the happiness/life of someone else there is nothing more that you can do, there is no superior act of love. So why did she lead Zero? Not to say that this a pattern that Hino uses constantly; Zeki is debatable but therefore gets pale next to the solid passionate Yume.
I know it's irritating and boring, full of repetitions but until now I can not charge Yuuki for leading Zero. Blaming her for leading kaname with all the things that she has said and done in this script if she chose Zero at the end yes, but the reverse I can not see, I am sorry.
