Same disclaimer as always: English translation of Chinese translation of Japanese is less accurate than direct English translation from Japanese. So take what I've done with a grain of salt. But the general gist is there. I've found that my translation is getting better the more I do so this did come out a low smoother than my previous translation projects. Brackets contains my interpretations of the dodgy areas.
Thanks to pkdesigner for the link to the raws.
Finally arriving at the forefront...
(Can be interpreted as “it’s finally here” or something like that)
Yuuki prepares to bite, withdraws, Zero looks at her. “Want to give up?”
Yuuki looks at Zero. “No, it’s not that.”
“I only want to take a good look at the face of the one I’m taking blood from, future president of the association.”
“...I’m not biting Zero simply because he invited me to. Like Zero said, this terrible cause – eh...” (the word is definitely "cause" but I feel like it should be "this terrible thirst" *shrug* ah well)
Still Yuuki, “Please help me... I really want Zero’s blood now. I... I’ve always suppressed my thirst.”
“Only need a little bit... Because, if it’s enough to satisfy, then I can definitely work hard to become pureblood Kaname’s... .”
To return to the past is no longer allowed...
Zero stares. “Ah... If it’s not like that, then I would be interfering...”
I can no longer restrain myself –
Yuuki, “Zero is so calm, yet I’m so very nervous.”
“Just for now, can Zero please don’t think about anything...”
Zero, “It doesn’t matter. There’s nothing inside my heart that, if you peeped, would interfere...”
Zero, “Your matter... I don’t think about it any longer...”
“It’s only, occasionally, when your fragment inside me awakens... that thoughts of you would appear...”
I don’t think about it anymore. Only occasionally, when your fragment inside me awakens...
Real life Yuuki stares at the Yuuki inside Zero’s mind, who’s sitting on the tree root over a cemetery yard with a black wolf behind her.
The Yuuki in Zero’s mind says, “It’s okay, don’t worry.”
The Yuuki in Zero’s mind, “The thing Zero’s most afraid of, is now sleeping deeply inside...”
Real life Yuuki turns around to find Zero/Ichiru (hard to tell) behind her. He says, “There, protecting the coffin, is only a memory.”
Real-life Zero, with Yuuki drinking from him, “Hey, don’t peep inside me.”
Yuuki, “I didn’t look at anything...” (Interpreted as I didn’t look at anything in particular/I didn’t specifically snoop for that etc.)
“It’s nothing,” Yuuki wipes her mouth. “Unlike a certain peeping someone from before...”
On a certain level...
There’s an impression of the black wolf...
“Ah...” Zero mutters, clutching at his throat.
“Ah, it’s not like that,” Yuuki, panicking. “I didn’t mean it that way. Zero is...”
Hunger and thirst...
How is it...?
Yuuki clenches her hand.
Yuuki, “Sorry, I should apologize... Thank you...”
The moment I bit into Zero’s neck, my mind suddenly calmed down and my fangs extended for someone I had absolute no intention of drinking from
I, in accordance with the agreement,
To not respond to Zero’s actions is impossible –
Sara – in her shiny new uniform – joining the Night Class
Yuuki at the door
Shiki, “Hey, are you being serious when you say that?”
Hanabusa, “I’ve always been very serious!”
Continuing, “Even if we’re surrounded by the association, it’s still the same. As our purebloods and monarchs’ subordinate, let me spy around, okay.”
Shiki, stone-faced, “So basically, you want us to take over and assist our temporary dorm president?”
Hanabusa, flushing, “Yes, the current situation is highly damaging to what we hope to achieve.”
Shiki, “Although we really do need those information, Aidou-kun...”
Shiki, continued, “Didn’t you once say Kaname-sama gave you the role of temporary dorm president? And are you sure it’s okay for you to leave her side?”
Hanabusa, looking grave, “That... well...”
Hanabusa, looking away, “That’s not a problem.”
“At her side, there’s an anti-pureblood hunter to keep an eye on things.”
Yuuki, as she walks past Zero, “Zero, these days, are there any Day Class students sneaking out at night time?”
Zero, “I’m looking into it now.”
Two night class girls can be spotted.
Yuuki pats Zero on the back, “I’ll leave it to you then.”
Yuuki, hides behind the wall. “Ah, I didn’t act too unnatural, did I?”
To converse in an extremely simple manner?
Doesn’t matter. As long as I can start afresh with Zero...
Yuuki sinks to the floor. *pause* “Ah... must quickly get to the classroom.”
Zero, “Alright already, hurry up and get back to your dorms. Go!”
Kaien, “Thanks for the hard work, Zero-kun.”
Zero, “Chairman Kaien, Kaito.”
Kaien, “I can see a little bit of the old Yuuki. And you always obediently making yourself useful. That, above all else, makes me happy.”
Zero, “That rascal shares the same aspiration as yours. Now she’s at the school desperately trying her hardest. It’s because of that request, that I’m doing what things that cannot be avoided.”
Kaien, “There’s no point in arguing... But you.”
“Back then, there was nothing that could stop you. You only ever wanted to rush forward to kill Kaname-kun, using the dangerous risk he posed as an excuse.”
“Yet now, to suddenly change and become obedient, it’s really worrying.”
Zero thought about it, then smiled.
Zero, “Kaname Kuran, hasn’t he already decided to kill off the pureblood race?”
“If that’s the case, in my opinion, there’s no reason for me to rush forward to stop him.”
Kaien looked at him. “... Those words, I’ll pretend I didn’t hear them.”
Kaien, “As the chairman of peace agreement, I cannot ignore Kaname-kun’s recent behaviour.”
“It’s also because of Yuuki...”
On the staircase, Rima, “We’re late.”
Shiki, “Yeah, well, that’s only because Aidou wouldn’t stop talking.”
They open the door and pause.
Yuuki kneeling on the floor. Sara glowing in her chair. (The sound-effect next to the pen on the floor is “general mumbling”)
The board has two sheets. One says “Ichijou-senpai,” with the word “resigning” after it. On the column next to it has “Sara” The word you see repeated three times is the Chinese way of keeping tally (it’s a word with five strokes, so it’s scores of five). So it looks like Sara has seventeen votes and on the sheet next to it, you can see Yuuki has only one vote.
Rima, shocked, “Why are you looking so utterly defeated?”
Yuuki slowly turns around, “Because of the gap in charisma, Sara-san became Dorm President.”
Sara, glowing, “But the actual duties, I want to relinquish over to Yuuki-san. For me, the responsibility is too major.”
Yuuki, “Ah... okay.”
Rima, shocked, “Ah, to be forced to accept the job.”
Ichijou looks really ... off. “...”
Shiki, “? Ichijou-senpai?” Then, he noticed something and turned to his right.
“Ah!” Maria at the window.
Teacher, “Okay, everyone. Can we please start the lesson?”
Rima, “Suddenly, I have an uneasy feeling about what’s to come.”
Sara, “Oh, everyone, let’s not trouble the teacher any longer. Let’s return to our seats.”
Yuuki, “Ichijou-senpai, regarding yesterday’s discussion, can we continue discussing it a bit later?”
Ichijou, “Ah, is this the issue regarding the new blood tablets?”
Ichijou, smiling, “Sorry, that was my mistake. There’s no problem.”
Yuuki, Shiki, Rima. “Ichijou-senpai...?”
Ruka, “This must be
(Sorry, I can't be bothered guess what the pureblood's name was. Chinese translation uses the same character as the Japanese kanji but the pronunciation is bound to be different. So even if I did guess, it's bound to be wrong. I'm going to leave this to the Japanese experts once the originial raws are out.)
Akatsuki spots something, “You better stay here and do the task you were assigned to do. I’m going to go over there and see what those strange people are doing.”
Akatsuki dashes over, sees this queue of people getting bottles of the new blood tablets. “What... is this...?”
“Ruka.” Kaname arrives. “Today’s all thanks to you doing all this difficult work. I must really thank you.”
Ruka, looking rather withdrawn. “Although here’s quite far away from the road, but it’s still fairly close to where the humans are living.”
“Okay, I’ll go and do my best to lead them away.”
Kaien arrives with a sword. “I was just thinking you were probably going to arrive here, Kaname-kun.”
Kaname, “Chairman Kaien... are you here as the chairman of the peace agreement association?”
Kaien, “Also as Yuuki’s adoptive father. I’m here to inform you that I’ve already decided I will not be returning Yuuki to you.”
Kaname looks down, “Yuuki is already walking her own path and living by her own decisions... Chairman Kaien.”
Kaname, continues, “I no longer have the means to bind her to me. Therefore”
“For you to take Yuuki away from my side like this, I am very grateful.”
Kaien, draws out sword. “Is that because, in your goal to eliminate the pureblood race, Yuuki is your Achilles’ Heel?” (The literal translation is “will she be your stumbling block” as in she may cause you to stumble, as in she’ll prevent you from achieving your goal. But I think Achilles’ Heel says pretty much the same thing...)
Kaname, “That’s right.”
“If you are to stop me, then you would be eliminated too.”
Kaname vs Cross (last 2 are actually kanji characters and not Chinese so I don't know what it says, sorry!)
Also, Hino-sensei appears to be taking a break T_T So two months till the next chapter comes out.
Hope you guys enjoy this!
My thoughts: In Zero's head, the cemetery represents the thing he's most afraid of - sinking down the Level E. The fragments of Yuuki and Kaname that he consumed is keeping it at bay (represented by the tree). So that's why they're watching over/guarding the coffin. (Somebody suggested it could also be Shizuka) I think it's sad, for Zero at least, how even the fragment of Yuuki he consumed has Kaname next to her, watching over her. It's almost as if he can never get a piece of Yuuki just for himself if you know what I mean. (That's just my impression of the scene).
