thats a good observation jul!
let us see...
Kaito's comment came before the party between Kaname and the hunters. It seems he basically predicted that there will be MORE killings and more jobs to happen----so if we look what he had predicted, it was Kaname vacating his position as head of vampires and letting all hell loose on the streets.
on the other hand, he could just be talking about Kaname's new leadership that might affect their job in a way that it will hinder their killing, and he reassures Zero his thoughts that "sooner or later they will have freedom to hunt", he might be taking Kaname's rule as restrictive type.
However Zero's reaction to Kaito's comment also doesn't seem reasonable because he was surprised.
Looking back at the party at chapter 55, a chapter after Kaito gave away that first clue, here are some curious things I've noticed that are quite suspicious in itself
Kaito's sight goes to Kaien and Aido talking on the upstairs balcony.
Why Hino emphasized this scene, and why did Kaito noticed it?
it may seem random but another similar thing happened over the characters actually involved in later events.
Kain also seems alert for anything suspicious and immediately inquired Kaien when he went to leave.
Coincidence? When the dust of the pureblood was found, it was also Kain and Ruka who had found it, the same ones who became Kaname's allies later on.
here Takuma says the reason why he's staying with Sara.
he says he cant "risk making the wrong move"
"he couldn't read her moves to find out why he was imprisoning him"
So there are two things he's saying here: for some reason he doesn't want to expose the fact he is trying to find out her motives ---- the reason can only be that he wants to continue making Sara believe Takuma is harmless so he can continue
spying on her for someone
, and that someone is Kaname no doubt, supported by Takuma's same words in chapter 74
Takuma says he's jealous of Yuki because she is more of an ally than him---, what leaves him to think such? maybe because he was given a mission and until now wasnt successful with it? connecting back to chapter 55 he didn't get the reason why Sara is confining him still. And its either Takuma didn't know that Sara said (in chapter 43) that she wanted to get information from Kaname through him, OR Takuma himself didn't believe it so he's looking for the real reason he is being confined.
If he thinks he can spy on Sara then he surely also has plans to tell Kaname about it, and this is probably what he had been doing all this time, and the important thing is there is a good possibility Takuma has the means to communicate with Kaname.
This is also supported by the fact that Kaname told Rima and Shiki NOT to look for Takuma in chapter 54-55. Kaname knew where he was, and probably Takuma also knows how to get back and escape IF he wants to.
One other thing that intrigues me about what Takuma said is that Yuki is a "better ally" to Kaname than him. how so?
this is truly baffling especially when she doesn't do anything more than remain a hostage by the hunters, but perhaps Takuma knows more than what he says, and perhaps Yuki's presence itself in the academy is making the wheels turn...
4. Nagamichi Aido
here is the best seller of this chapter
notice how Aido dono actions looks like he already expects that there will be a commotion. The emphasis on his panel here is just like Kain's and Kaito's mentioned above, as though it was important to make him appear on a box with his expression there.
Aido dono's face shows up when the commotion starts, looking like "I knew this will happen! What will you do now Kaname?"
expression, and then Kaname questions Sara about the fiancee she killed.
and lastly, Zero calling the party as a "farce"
connecting to what he said in chapter 53 when he was surprised by Kaito's comment, it seems to me the word he used here (farce) meant he caught on the trickery being done towards Sara, and when he said the word, he was looking at Kaname. So maybe Zero does know something was going on and the party wasnt what it seems
He knows the party was set up to stage Sara killing Ouri per Kaname's instructions, hence when it was done, he says the farce is over.
On the same page, someone says on a callout, "This game of chess... when did it begin?"
I think the one who thinks about that was Zero, instead of Yuki. Yuki doesn't know there's even a game going on, she is clueless about Sara. I think Zero suspected there was a game hence the beginning of chapter 55 page 1
So these five people mentioned here ALL knew something about Sara and Kaname's chess match.
the ones who know whats going on is Kain, Ruka, Seiren, Takuma, Kaito, Yagari, Jinmu and Aido-dono. The fact they haven't said anything about it now makes it no doubt its meant to be secret or hidden away.
Zero is one of those catching on the drift but I dont think anyone had told him fully about it. I think he can sense it happening though.
one possibility I believe he wasn't told about it is just like maria said here
More , even if Zero is considered to be the most probable future
President of the Hunter's Association . He is not trusted by all hunters
yet . As Zero is not only a vampire hunter ; but a vampire himself . So
there is this probability of people hidding information from him .
in chapter 50 he was already being monitored by Kaito as an "assurance", Kaito was sent to watch over him. in short they weren't too sure of Zero, OR they want to see if he's trustworthy enough.
Yuki, Kaien, Aido, Rima, Shiki do not know anything based on their actions. I think they are the ones left to judge.
so it seems to me that presently the hunters KNOW Kaname and Sara's chess match but choose not to get involve in it... because it is as Kaito says, its also their desire to see that purebloods die, which is what Kaname is doing.
But I don't think they can keep up the farce for too long.
like whats said here
But I think the hunters intervention will change in the next few
chapters . From the passive role they has now to a more active one .
Hanabusa was ordered to bring samples of the new Sara's blood tablets
and a vampire woman who most probable used them . To being studied by
the Vampire Hunter's Association . Whatever information is gathered from
these samples will affect the involvement of the hunters . Specially if
Sara's blood tablets are the way for her to make an army . Because they
most probably will need to fight a mob of berseker vampires .
I agree. they cant keep ignoring Sara or her actions. Eventually they will have to make a move against her.
