- The tablets have always tasted bad, hence Maria's agreement and everyone else's negativity about eating them since day one.
- Sara could not have adjusted the tablets after Yuuki's first taste, because this scene in chapter 72 only takes place the night before chapter 73.
- If Sara were already developing tasty tablets prior to Yuuki's first taste, why give her the bad tasting ones? And why do the tablets change shape? Sara is clearly making them distinct.
So the one thing (that she now perfected them in taste) does not
need necessarily that it cancels the theory that prior experiments have
been made to the tablets that would first essentially change their
quality/substance/effects (that's the core), after this the last step
would be to convey the bad taste...
Yes agree with juliet it doesnt have to be cancelled after all its sara were talking about.
its a fact that BTs taste bad...but the fanbook said it was actually tasteless, so I dont know which is true. Im sure Aido said somewhere that BTs are an ongoing research experiment and efforts have been made to improving it including the taste, there are also various types of BT and the variety can also mean different tastes.
Like Nina said, this doesn't mean that the BT was not replaced by another. ch71 the tablet case was already at her bedside, Sara knew Kaname was gone and Yuki had no replenishment, she can easily use this to her advantage by tampering with her supply of BT and it is most conveniently placed where its found in Yuki's bedroom.
As for the short time frame I dont know how that can be justified but Sara is pushing her minions to work hard and she doesnt need to mass produce tablets, she only has to create a few and replace Yuki's BT with it, as she's the only target. hence its possible to be created at a short time. As for the distinct shape, I think its for marketing purposes to make her tablets sell in contrast to the ones that taste bad, the round BT Yuki has (if it was tampered) was not altered to prevent suspicion .
I think Sara can have plans that concerns both BT tampering and Yuki because of:
-Sara especially told Takuma after that he was whispering to the ears of
the people who would be dangerous to her in the future. It sounds like a
plan was already made
-she doesnt want Yuki to hear about the new good tasting BT she made. why not? it is pleasant right? and it is a good tasting BT, different from the one Yuki disliked. why was it dangerous to tell her, other than the fact that yuki might notice something was wrong and doubt the BT? Sara didn't want Yuki to doubt her BT, and that's either because Yuki is already taking the tampered ones, or Sara plans to advertise the BT to her in the future, or she doesnt want to shatter Yuki's illusion that Sara is a villain in sheep clothing. Many reasons.
-If Sara did swap Yuki's BT with her homemade ones like Nina pointed, theres a chance Takuma doesnt know about it, Sara has lots of tools at hand and she can use these.
-Yuki is acting strange with her hunger bouts. Especially towards Yori. She just took a few BT a day ago (I know its a day ago because Maria says sara confronted zero "yesterday") and now she took one again, but she is still hungry which Zero noted to be present on her eyes. And the lust might have made her "crazy" since Yuki suggested that she wants to talk to him like before.
*But just to remind we can see Yuki was still sane and conscious when she met Zero as you can see her thoughts play around angst and Zero himself, so Im not saying her biting him was under the influence of the BT, if she was taking the tampered ones.
As a taste to the first altered tablets the blood of the prisoners
could have been used (even though the emotional condition if these
people could have made it even worst as Nina said)...what the children's
blood could hide would be the taste...and that would be perhaps the
last stage of perfecting the tablets...until then they tasted awful just
Yes I think this is quite possible as what other purpose could Sara's
prisoners have. Well there's one, manipulation : she imprisoned the CEO
pharmacy president and then later used him as a puppet... i dont think
she is using the others as puppet as there's too many of them, so what
other purpose... her main project is BT tampering, so perhaps... the BT
was made out of redbloodcells (in humans) so it must have a human source.
*theory - Sara made an initial batch of BTs just intended to be used by Yuki, she needed immediate source for blood so she used the prisoners. Hence the bad taste. And Yuki's flashback seeing the countless faces in it.
The tablets in her new production tasted good because she used her blood and the blood of young children she arranged to be kidnapped by vampires she control, to make it taste good
Sara's new tablets - I still think they are made from purebloods.
the tastiest thing around to everyone.
there are too few purebloods available, nor are they willing to offer her blood I doubt. And the only one most conveniently available to her is herself which brings
But apparently this can not be just it, other substances must have
been used in order to make the vampires more weak or enslaved to Sara,
Sara's blood could be used to change their substance...the effects and
what must be used to alter their quality should be seen separately.
Yes, she is probably giving a drop of her blood in the mixture. Ofc, Sara can't be just creating BTs that are beneficial for vampires, she has plans with it, and her blood can have an effect to the vampires that take it.... (Perhaps to make them obey her?)
As for the taste I think its her blood that gives the tablets a pleasant taste, or its the kidnapped human children's young blood that makes it pleasant, or it can be a little of both, or just one.
As said here:
The new good - tasting blood tablets could be made using the
latest kiddnapped kids flesh and blood . As the babies / infant / small
humans are the third most tasty blood for vampires . ( 1st pureblood ,
2nd the blood of a loved one . )
I believed first Sara's blood
could the source for the new tasty formula . But there's something fishy
about not telling yet the source of the new pills . Also she can't be
making anything that could empower other vampires . So I was probably
wrong here .
If this is true . Sara is the main responsible for the latest kids kiddnapping .
1. The vampire seems to have charmed the baby/ hypnotized it in a
way himself since he did not have the time to deliver it to another
master/ the hunters retrieved it...
The vampire above that has taken the children that are missing, is
the vampire that he had kidnapped the child that was later transfered to
great deduction there juliet! Yes it said the way vampires kidnapped children is: there is one who takes the child and there is one who receives it. So this fits perfectly to that description!
So the kidnapper vampire charms the child, leaves her on the area, and escapes. Zero and Kaito gives chase... Kaito sees the child and brings her to the association while Zero went after the vampire. Then
Zero loses the vampire by seeing blood
hence the weird reason why Zero couldnt capture the target vampire in chapter 69 and 70. But whose blood? It was not the little girl's as she was taken by Kaito before Zero gave chase. Whoever blood that belongs to, it stopped Zero from his pursuit. Or whatever stopped him.
.about the vampire his suprisement though is too big; YOU..in a place
like that, like he knows her from somewhere, trying to remember where
else he might have been, he seems a pawn someone that is used as a slave
to a higher master..we will see...the fact is that he must be
interrogated from the hunters since Yuuki's wondering bag got him
About the vampire I thought it was something like You, a pureblood, in a
place like that! None, Kaname or Sara or anyother purebloods would go
in a pub searching for a vampire, right?
yes I agree with libra somewhat it appears to be that way... at first I also thought it can only be that the vampire recognized Yuki from somewhere, but it can also be that she is a pureblood and her presence in a vampire pub was unusual. meh, this is im leaning to for now~
But the plot with the tablets, I think that it goes quite
back...other wise just for a different flavor, what would be all these
about? I think that she has been experimenting with them..long time now.
Now she just makes it perfect to convey the bad taste so that the
vampires would he happy to consume more and more. I think that Sara's
plan is to make them all slaves, we've seen that she used her blood to
enlave her harem, the president of the pharmaceutical company, Takuma,
but the tablets target to the rest of the vampires..so it could be
possible and a very complete scheme.
I agree with you juliet it seems to be connected as it was described closely together. one chapter yuki taste unpleasant tablets, then the next chap sara is making a new batch of pleasant ones, and she is also wary of letting yuki know... odd right?
yes i think its what she's planning, to build her army discreetly so she can face kaname with enough minions to defeat him. or she can be building an army...
