I also liked Aidou's dad and I do not think that he was a traitor but the fact that he consents to the crime (his own murder) and especially infront of the eyes of his son makes me wonder what necessity was there...I would say that we can not make clear conclusions because we do not know...
It's true there's not enough information to conclude, but still, up to what extent is it for killing to be considered as necessary? Especially with Aidou-dono...aww I still feel at loss for his 'consentual' murdering...
Regardless of whatever reason there is to kill someone like that, it's still doesn't seem right.
Again we do not know so can not reach conclusions. I wouldn't take it that light and instantly put Kaname at the wall and starting to shoot, because that's probably where Hino diverts the plot now. She wants us to believe that Kaname is mean and inexcusable. Hino plays that way with Kaname all the time. Of course on the other hand, who ever wants to reach conclusions or is just seeking for a reason to blame Kaname (again LOL) has found it. But Hino was never so simple and obvious so be cautious with that.
Well yeah, there's still a lot to learn from where the story has postponed. Call me bias, though I claim it otherwise for apparently, I judge this merely from what meets the eye.
I second your motion of the fact that Hino-sensei always winds up making really good diversions of Kaname's every deed, and he ends up getting away with just about anything. It's just that anyone can hardly fail making loopholes out of anything, no matter how dire and hopeless situations may seem, there'll always be an outlet regardless of its truth (happens a lot in plot twists).
And about always blaming Kaname for his sinister actions (HAHAHAHA! Which I admit, I do oft...though unconsciously..
), that is just the contrary to all those Kaname fans who always find loopholes to amend for his actions, whether good or bad, right or wrong. It just how things work.
And besides, I'm not a Kaname fan, so I can't consider diversions for his actions beforehand (not that I don't want to, I just can't. HAHAHA! That's why second opinions exist.
Yes he is the dark character like now, that's the best part of Kaname, he is driving the action, making all the plot to revolve around him. A past has to do with character because a good basis sustains the characters like real people I guess. Can you act for the common good and then one day just wake up and start shooting innoncents? It makes no sense. Well you can believe that he is mean and dark, I will believe that he is acting that way having an ultimate purpose for the benefit of the many. Hino has posed many times the idea that Kaname wants a safer world for Yuuki but also the idea that he had a plan to fullfil and now he is acting for it. I think the two collide so a safer world can not be driven with menace, I think he is just a soul whose intentions are good but as always he is misunderstood. LOL...[/quote]
I agree with you about Kaname... Yes that adds to the essence of his character and to the plot's perks. But with the possibility of a good guy turning bad is not that all unimaginable (it happens in fiction, it happens in real life, what is there to doubt?). A good guy turning into a bad guy is not any less apprehensive as much as a bad guy turning good (which apparently also happens in fiction...well most of the time). Though I am not actually entirely convinced that that's Kaname's case.
I also believe Kaname's doing all of these for a fair cause, though I waver about that that 'cause' is for the benefit of the many as well, I'm positive it's for Yuki's good. After all, everyone in the story dedicate themselves to saving Yuki -- I'm jealous (HAHAHA!
