ok here's my take on the timeline
to try to stick closest to accurate I try to put dates and ignored the longest time first. noting cues for passing of the day, as well as the seasonal changes, flashback length and etc.
for now, the default longest time passed will be one week or one month
to keep up with the events and changes
so everything here is approximate as well as the time
please bear with me
1st day of the second arcchapter 49
--on page 30 Zero interrogates a vampire in an alley, which continues to chapter 50chapter 50
--Zero says he was able to take tablets since a year ago, Kaien says so it's already been a year
in my version of translation yuki says "it's been almost a year", she says this as she writes the letter. So its probably around winter time as indicated by the snowy weather outside (september-december) but not yet a year has passed.
and this all happens in a day:
the setting is the same with zero and yuki's place: its snowing
zero and kaien talk in the building where zero blew a hole in the wall and cracked a window,
yuki in the mansion when kaname tells her that it was time to meet with the association.
-one week later-chapter 51
its the beginning of spring as seen from the cloudy skies and leafless trees. Last chapter was winter since it was snowing.
so how long does it take for a season to change from winter to the beginning of spring? so assuming that takes one week.chapter 52
kain and ruka checks the castle - the background seems dry and does not indicate the day
HA deciding who will be the leader - discussion of the upcoming ball - here before Zero enters the building there's the view of the moon outside so it's nightime. Yagari says it took Zero a long time to reach the association building so probably
>mid night? - nothing to indicate except the dark shadowy background
Sara and takuma receives invitations to the ball
the next day? yuki practices for the ball - I think this can just be considered either in the 8th or 9th day since there was no indication of the time she was doing this so I won't include it in either one of them :/chapter 53
zero at the stables being summoned by Yori. Zero attends day classes so this confirms it is daytime
zero and kaito at the academy: kaito teaches there. He says tomorrow (10th day) at midnight the ball will begin
>around 10AM-rest of the day..
yuki and ruka preparing for the ball
kaname and hunters having a meeting - I think this was done the day before midnight when the ball was scheduled to happen or on the day itself so it's debatable, I just placed this under the 10th day
11th day chapter 54
>early morning, around 12AM-1AM
the ball beginschapter 55
>1AM-4AM - incidents at the ballchapter 56
>daybreak - 6AM
its the morning after the incident. Yuki is sent home and stays there for the rest of the day with Kaname.
hunters discuss the events that happened last night
12th day chapter 57
>daybreak again, around 6AM
Kaname kisses Yuki goodbye to go to the meeting, its the break of dawn outside...
Yuki decides to do something to Artemis. Aido goes with her.
Assuming this is the time it took for Aido and Yuki to travel from the mansion to the train station, then the length of travel on the train as well
The visit to Isaya's mansion... chapter 58
>12NN - 1PM
continued visit to isaya
rima and shiki photoshoot was during the day. Then they noticed zero and kaito on the way to Dahlia school for girls.
Sara's visit to the school as well as the tour to finish it
Zero spotting Sara and failing to catch her.
Kaito notes Zero is somehow crazed and tells him to take 3 days off and go visit Ichiru's grave.
Zero then visits ichiru's grave on that day. I think he also visits him on that day to coincide Yuki's visit to the cemetary later on
After the trip to Isaya, Yuki decides to go to Momoyama's grave (the same cemetery where Ichiru was buried)
Just when Zero has finished visiting his grave, Yuki and Aido arrive at the cemetery and they meet each other.chapter 60
>6PM - 7PM
After Touma incident, and after Zero had carried Yuki. They are now inside the hunter's association.
Zero says "tonight" when he carries yuki so that means it was already nightime. Plus there are torches lit inside the building.
After the near bite incident, Yuki is whisked away by Kaname's bats
and Zero captures Aido in her place for interrogation (later in chapter 63)chapter 61
Kaname punishes Yuuki by biting her dry, I assume its late at night as well
and she seems tired so it must have been going on for a while
Yuki starts travelling in Kaname's memorieschapter 62
13th daychapter 63
flashback: Aido getting captured by Zero last night
And now Aido's inside the prison wagon car with Zero protesting his arrest
If Zero captured him last night and put him on the wagon, then they were probably traveling by car until morning. In the wagon it looks bright outside.
Yuki in the 2nd phase of kaname's memories- yuki in long hair
zero and aido arrive at HAchapter 64
>afternoon, assuming (4pm?)
yuki at 3rd phase of kaname's memories where kaname can see her
>late afternoon (5pm)
Kaito asks Zero why is he working when he's been told to rest. That means he has not exhausted his 3 days off yet since his visit to Ichiruchapter 65
>late afternoon 5 pm
Sara at the pharmaceutical building, outside its still bright
The hunters begin interrogating Aido
>night time 9 or 10pm
zero says to Aido "try your best tomorrow" after the interrogation
zero says "goodnight" to him
>night time 10pm
yuki wakes up and panics - nothing to indicate the time but it follows its still night time
>late at night 11pm
the pharmaceutical president is captured and is now behind bars. The surroundings of the prison looks dark..
so Sara captured the president after Takuma left the room earlier so they can talk... I think it wouldn't take a while for Takuma not to come back to the president and check out so she has already imprisoned him by that time, much to Takuma's surprise
14th daychapter 66
Seiren arrives at the association to tell them that Kaname's message :Aido has nothing to do with anything.
Aido receives Kaname's message and is reveling in it.
>night time, around 6PM
Ruka and Kain says there's movement in the Hanadagi's side
Yuki greets Ruka good evening as she passes by them on the hallway
Aido-dono on his way home passes by Sara's car and tells the driver to follow itchapter 67
>night time 7PM
Kaname leaves Yuki right after promising her start over. He leaves via bats
>daytime, around 7am?
Zero and yori at stables-- its morning since yori says he has to attend classes and zero attends day classes
it's time to return Aido and he's then forced into the wagon car to be returned to Kuran mansion - its bright outside
Yuki goes out of the mansion at day time after Kaname's leave and notices how cold it is... she thinks she must follow Kaname
>9AM - 3 PM
Yuki finding the wagon car on the way and boarding it to chase Kaname
The events at the Hanadagi castlechapter 68
>4 PM - 6PM
Yuki insists on going after Kaname when Kaien slaps her. The surroundings look gloomy.
It's sunset or approaching night when Yuki boarded the prison carchapter 69
Yuki arrives at the association
Zero and Kaito goes on an emergency hunt to capture the target vampire
>8PM - 9 PM
Yuki is held in a soft trial/questioning about Kaname's whereabouts and intentions
Aido grieves, Yuki comforts him
the kidnapped child is rushed inside the building and Yuki sees her memories.
Zero is still chasing the target vampire.
Yuki inquires Kaien if its okay to create the night class
16th daychapter 70
>afternoon, around 4PM
Yuki goes after zero's vampire and its afternoon
Yuki says "after last night" < the kidnapping was last night
Shiki and Rima discussing the events while in the photoshoot
Maria's parents ask her about Yuki and her idea of the night class. Outside their house its dark.
Yuki goes to where most of the council / noble members are and asks for their cooperation in creating the night class - outside its dark
Sara receives Takuma's invitation for the night class - outside its dark
(hmm so I guess the moment Yuki told Kaien about her idea, she immediately sent out invites to the members, so it already reached Sara at such a short time)
one month laterchapter 71
(for the time it takes to reconstruct the destroyed night class dorm or construct a new dorm)
Yagari says the night class [dorm] was built in an adjoining area of the academy, so that means it was built again. It can't possibly take weeks, or several weeks to create a new building now can it. O.o Furthermore Yuki was saying its the first time for many of them in the dorm, so this confirms it is new.
Zero tells Yori to go back to her dorm before sunset
Yuki starts having thirst at night
the students greet Yuki good morning and she replies, "please look after me from this day onward"
Yuki senses there's trouble in the streets and decides to help
Sara arrives at the association begging at hunter-san
Yuki goes to the streets and in the background the skies look dark. Zero and Kaito chases after her
human auction ongoing
Yuki senses the vampire and jumps down. The skies also look like its night time
Yuki and Zero's fight
Kaname notes the lava flow going down the mountain. The skies look dark.
Sara tells lies to Kaien and Yuki hears it
Yuki having a thirst attack in her bedroom when she finds out what Kaname's been doing and she looks at the tablets
then she takes one when Zero notices it
Maria comments on taking Zero after Yuki takes the tablets
Zero rushes outside to a tree in a thirst attack too, and where Sara's stalking himchapter 73
Maria, who, not a moment ago was in Yuki's room, is now outside at night, and stopped Sara from taking advantage of Zero
How and Why she's there, I don't know.
>the next day
it seems its the students week end since the main characters are not in class.
Yuki looks out the window and thinks about what Maria just told him last night
Yuki takes a stroll to the forest and comes across Yori
meanwhile Sara just completed her next brand of blood tablets
Maria meets with Zero at the park, where she follows him and gets a sunstroke. Zero carries her back to the dorm
Yuki sees Maria getting carried by Zero. then later she talks with Takuma. And doubts just a little what Sara's up to.
>11am - 12nn
Yuki decides to say sorry to Zero for what happened last night, and Zero pulls her into the forest in response...
ok that's it so far, next chapter it would probably be around afternoon when Yuki bites Zero.
so in my take there's 49 days or more than one month since Kaname disappeared. The creation of the new night dorm building takes a lot of time but if you have opinions, suggestions facts about how long a building takes to build then share it here
that goes if there's anything else to be added..
