By Request: Vampire Knight [Side Story: Love's Desire]

[Free talk: Request by navr and Mars.]
With outstretched arms, Rido stands in top of the roof and faces Juri who is holding a scythe. He calls out, “My Juri, that expression of you looking at the world’s most repulsive thing is really beautiful that it makes me unable to endure it.. I like more that kind of expression which you gave me after I swallowed up our parents..” Juri mutters, “Really disgusting. I won’t give you anything. *points her scythe at Rido* I’m going to stuff you in a very deep hole in the ground. One drop of blood, one expression, or even Haruka’s life, I won’t give you any of it.” Rido smiles with twisted glee. He suddenly appears behind Juri. About to touch her face, Rido says, “You’ve become someone who’ll thought of such an amazing punishment for me, cute Juri..” Juri swings her scythe and shouts for him not to touch her. Rido holds her outstretched hand holding the scythe and says, “You obviously knew that you cannot win against me.. *chuckles* Juri..I will gain a lot more strength.. in order to clear out the everything between you and me, I’ll bet my life’s everything.” And, Rido disappears. Narration: “A twisted love’s bottomless desire. ..mother∙Juri’s previous memories are slightly marked on top of my heart.”
Yuuki opens her eyes and finds herself in front of the other vampire nobles who are in a meeting. Someone says, “Regarding getting rid of.. those people who had become desire’s slaves, those who approve please raise your hand.” Everyone raises their hand except for Yuuki. As Kain watches on, Takuma asks if it is only Kuran family’s head who opposes. Yuuki says no, she only thought of something worrisome, that’s all. “This thing of delivering ‘justice’ should be handled with some sensitivity. I hope that it can be left to us to appropriately get rid of them. *raises up her hand* That aristocrat who merely relies on selfish desire with the intention of selling the weapon’s technology should be immediately... punished.” After everyone left, Yuuki looks up to sleeping Kaname encased in ice and says, “..I’m okay.” Takuma calls out to her and says that the Association’s president is waiting outside. Walking towards the door, Yuuki tells him ‘good job’[/otsukaresama]. Takuma compliments her that he thinks that what she did is right. Yuuki is surprised over this and says, unexpectedly..did right? Looking up, Takuma says yes..no..probably, it isn’t at all unexpected. “Because you are ‘his’ kin” Yuuki replies, “..but, uncle Rido is also KIN.”
Outside the courtyard, while sitting on a bench, Yuuki looks up to the moon. Yuuki muses out loud if she is like Kaname or perhaps that person. “Zero, you wouldn’t want to suck the blood of someone like me.” Bending over at the side by the lamp post, Zero says it’s enough, the person at that side, stop your excessively vivid imagination. Yuuki says it isn’t excessively strong desire that makes the surrounding world get involved into misfortune, it is excessive endurance and unlimited suffering. “I feel that it is truly..a scary thing. *Zero stands up and glances at her* But, what’s scarier than that, is-- my heart also has the scary seed of desire. Besides, to be able to rely on strength to go and make it come true.. Yet, I also know this bit of fact.” Sitting beside Yuuki, Zero says that what she said is very similar to what Kaname Kuran would say. With both hands on her cheeks, she looks at Zero and asks, “..huh?” With a sparkle, Yuuki asks if she became like Kana,e. Zero says that he feels that it is like that from time to time. Yuuki says that for her to become like Kaname..that is saying that she became old.. Zero didn’t reply. Yuuki asks how come he won’t talk. She hangs her head down that Zero tries to comfort her by saying, no..
Yuuki tearfully says that if she is going to similar with Kaname then she really wants to be good at studying like him..! “Ai’s brains are too intelligent so regarding studies, I have no way of teaching her!” Holding some branches with leaves, Ai shouts that whether she [Yuuki] is old or not, or even about her [Ai], it is all unimportant. Ai is wearing a Night class uniform with a Guardian badge on her arm. Yuuki happily turns around and calls out Ai’s name. Pointing at them, Ai shouts that she has been quietly listening for a while and they are completely talking about work-type of topic that completely lacks any sentiment.. “Mother and Zero are both like that! So, I’ve already decided. Until you to give birth to a younger sister, I won’t do anything and will just stay in bed! Just like..what father Kuran did before, I’ll really just lie down until I’m withered.” Teary-eyed Yuuki says that Yori will be heart-broken if she cannot see her. Ai immediately hushes her mother to be quiet. She mutters if it is an ordinary type of night stoller..no, it is an intruder.. She calls out to the two that she has Guardian duties so she’ll go ahead first.
After she left, the two are quiet. Then, Yuuki apologizes to Zero about Ai. Zero says that it’s fine. She apologizes again. While holding her chest, she says that no matter what, she still feels very much in pain.. Zero holds her to him and says that he understands.. “From time to time, I’m also like that. When I look at the ‘furnace’ from above as it flashes its flame, I’ll think of this person, giving the person he loves the remaining of the very amazing bonds..something.” Standing at a tower building, Ruka watches from above and exclaims over the two’s good mood to continue like that and there is still time for today! Holding a pair of binoculars, Ruka looks at Ai on her hands and knees on the floor. Ruka says that adjusting Yuuki’s schedule caused a huge amount of free time so it’s really worth it! Ai asks her what is this. She pulls her hand but it is sticky. [<- it is like adhesive paper to trap insects] Kain explains to her that it seems to be a special custom-made sticky board. “If you forcefully meddle with it, it will become very tragic..”
Bending down to Ai, Ruka apologizes to Ai for making her fall into this trap but then, those two needs some time alone together. “I know that you are worried about those two.. you just..want them to become happy, right.” Ai denies it and says that she only wants a younger sister that’s all! “If I have a younger sister, I can take advantage of the time when she is still small and being fed to maturity[?]. So whenever I want, I can suck blood as I please!! It is that kind of plan! ..I’m serious. If it is possible, it is best that it is a younger sister who isn’t like Zero...” Ruka looks at scowling Ai and says, “..is that so.. but.. isn’t this something that can be resolve as long as the person you like would appear..?” Ai tells her to let her close the door for everyday she would dress herself up in want of making him a prince who is solely hers yet he already belongs to someone else.. Kain scowls as he looks at the two. Ruka says, is that so.. She hugs Ai and says that Ai hopes for that person’s happiness as well as to free herself.. Narration: “A woman of both beautiful and tender intelligence.. Refined. Occasionally strict and occasionally..”
Kain looks surprised as Ruka got herself stuck on the sticky board. Waving her arms, Ruka asks Kain to help her out. Kain takes her hand. Narration: “And also, cute. My woman.” Standing up with a torn stocking by the knee, Ruka says then, even if her knees are a bit chilly, she is going to continue the spying..wrong, it is like a shadow-type of continuing on cheering them on. Ai says that she also.. Ruka apologizes to Ai. Scowling Ai exclaims that just looking is too complacent!! Looking through her binoculars, Ruka tells her to please shut up. “..ah, this is a good development..it makes me feel a bit at ease.. *Kain calls out to her* huh? Sorry, I’m busy. Ah, it is like that! It is like that!” Kain sighs and takes Ruka’s binoculars from her. Cain tells her it’s over. This made Ruka embarrassed that she says, it’s no good, she is really..being too fascinated is quite vulgar.. Meanwhile, Zero and Yuuki look at the building tower behind them. Yuuki says that it seems that they stopped spying.. The two look at each other then, Zero suddenly makes Yuuki lay her head on his lap. He urges her to sleep for a while. “Lately, you have too many work to do that you didn’t sleep at all. Even if your body is like of a monster, even if it’s quite sturdy, rest is also a necessity.”
Yuuki slightly smiles and says that monster [comment] is unnecessary. Zero tells her that he’ll keep watch so she can sleep at ease. Yuuki says okay.. Back at the tower, Ruka tells Ai that she’ll have to wait for around 30 minutes before she can pull herself free from the sticky board so with that bit of time, she’ll asks her to help in letting those two be alone. Ai says that she understands and she also doesn’t want to go on surprise attacks with damaged clothes. “But, Ruka-neesan, towards those two, why would you also..” Ruka asks if she didn’t tell her. “It is because..that –sama ultimately expects this. *Kain scowls again.* Because I know that –sama already let go of what is considered his half-body’s solitary time [/times of loneliness].. Because that –sama, for his half-body, hopes for this..” [<- I guess the half-body probably refers to Yuuki.]” Kain is scowling and frowning. Ai asks if Ruka really likes..father Kaname.. Surprised Ruka says yes, but.. Kain slightly smiles. Narration: “Geez..” Ruka smiles and says that she also has been completely and bluntly been jilted. Narration: “Like that, just a bit of your forceful smile, I really feel that it’s totally cute.”
Kain walks toward Ruka and carries her away. Surprised Ruka asks what is it, what’s going on.. Ai can only call out to Ruka. Inside, Kain gently puts Ruka down. Cornering her on the wall, he says, “Ruka--, you should, more or less, also only think of only me, right.” Ruka blushes. While pulling Ruka to him, Kain tells her that she can call him desire’s slave. Holding his head to kiss him, Ruka says that she won’t use such a gentle way of calling him, slow-witted idiot. Back at the courtyard, Zero pats Yuuki’s head and says that if she is still hasn’t slept, then, just lie down and listen to him. “Just now, you asked me, if you had already become old, right? The reason why I wasn’t able to immediately answer.. even if your face is filled with wrinkle lines, and the heart is no longer young, my feelings for you will also not change.. It is only because I’m thinking of that, that’s all. Besides..you won’t become old. *smiles* You are still cute..” He is surprised when Yuuki smiles at him and touches his face. She says, “Zero is also still handsome.. when you said that, it made me happy that it caused me to wake up, Zero, you idiot, do you want to say such words like that..” [<- not sure if Yuuki was the one saying that last line or if it is Zero.]
Zero says that he still haven’t mentioned about the possibility of the Association incorporating a new organization.. Yuuki tells him not to talk about work. Zero says, “..then..what is the scary seed of desire?” After a pause, Yuuki says, “Twisted love born from desire.. *points at surprised Zero and smiles* the rest is a secret.” The wind blows as a figure is standing at the tower building. Sad looking Ai mutters, “..[it’s a] thorough bye-bye already..my first love.” Then, she walks back into the building. The scene changes to older Ai saying, “..after several years..no..after the period of entering deep sleep, a lot more..a lot more time passed.. finally, *gesturing to the side to a boyish looking girl* the my anticipated henchman, this is..” The girl says that she’s called Ren. Kaname says, then once again, yoroshiku [I’m under your care], Ai, Ren. After a pause, Kaname lets out a suppressed laughter and says that with them together, it is ‘romantic love’..fu..fu.. [<- Ai means love; Ren means ‘to love/long for’ and with ‘ren + ai’ = romantic love/in love/have an affair] With -_- expressions along with Ren, Ai says that Kaname has already got used to smiling[/laughing] so he can laugh out. Kaname says that the vegetation here are still quit few that there is almost not much huge trees around.
Ai explains that before, there is a small scale war that happened here..so..it is.. Kaname glances out the window and asks if the work of war reparations [/dealing with the aftermath of the war] has already been done well [/already okay]. Ai says that it is already done. Ren says, about that..could it be that he is recalling something. Kaname asks why she would ask. Ren says that mother had said that she would bear grandmother Juri’s memories, and it is because.. Ai calls out to Ren and exclaims, no, they promised mother not to talk about that. Kaname says that even if he doesn’t really understand but this person whom they call ‘mother’, already..doesn’t exist, right. Ren says that she is still around. Ai calls out to Ren but Ren still tells Kaname that [Yuuki] is within his body. Looking slightly glum, Kaname says, ya. Narration: “There is a memory that is still distinctly retained in the heart. Even if I don’t know when this thing is, that feeling.. *figure of Kaname holding a scythe* as soon as this war’s reparation work is finished, I’ll go into a long term deep sleep. In this case.. at this rate, perhaps, *image of Yuuki in her uniform* I can once again see that illusion of that young girl whom I met at the battlefield.” The end.
Comment: If this is a continuing series, it would be interesting if Rido is back as a villain against amnesia Kaname + two sisters. From what is shown here, I find the sisters likeable. It seems that ‘incest’ runs in the family ^^; What are the chances that the next 50p side story out in February will have yuri undertones since it is about the sisters? Even if it is nice that Kaname can smile now, he doesn’t seem to be the old Kaname-sama. But if he regains his memories, it will be all about Yuuki again ;_; It will probably be the same with Yuuki and Zero who kept on talking about Kaname this and that. Kain and Ruka scenes are nice. Hm..was Ruka somewhat mischievous before? ^^; Even if I want to know more about what’s currently happening in their timeline but I guess it will still continue on filling Kaname in regarding what happened in the past...at least, the parts that he has to know.

Quote of the day:
Desire is the source of our most noble aspirations and our deepest sorrows. The pleasure and the pain go together; indeed, they emanate from the same region in our hearts. We cannot live without the yearning, and yet the yearning sets us up for disappointment--sometimes deep and devastating disappointment. ~ John Eldredge, Desire

  1. Thanks for the review!! , I'm a bit shocked....I was sure, the child of yuuki and Zero was a boy, LOL I'm really shocked, but well... if those two are in a yuri-incestuous relationship, they won't have any descendants

    1. Oh okay, good. I thought I was the only one. I honestly thought it was a boy. From their interactions so far, it doesn't seem like they are in a romantic relationship. Then again, we don't see too much of them together. Personally, I would like to see Kaien Cross interacting with them xD I bet he's a doting grandfather~

    2. Thanks for reading, Andi ^-^

      Hehe, actually, I think most if not all readers think that the child is a boy.

      True..but then, Kaname is still around. =P

  2. Thanks for the summary...ai liking zero is a bit weird but should've expected it to become like this

  3. Damn i had forgotten about VK series.....Shouldnt have clicked this whenever i see Zero i just feel sad for him ;/

    Been played by the heroine and ending up raising the other guy's kid....and from what i see they just talk about kaname when they alone.Zero for me is by far the saddest char ever^^.

    2. Anonymous, I feel you, I like Zero and I keel kinda sad that his love for Yuuki is not reciprocated as it should be for Yuuki's love is exclusive for Kaname. I think that their (Kaname and Zero's) love for Yuuki is great in each on their own way. I have high hopes and wanted Yuuki and Zero to be together with Yuuki fully loving Zero.I got a heartbroke on Zero's situation.

  4. Thank you Kat, I love zero and yuuki in this chapter, they have such a simple yet meaningful and deep relationship, I can't stop admiring how good they're for each other.

  5. i wonder if kaname will remember everything lol I hope Yuki and Kaname will be together again^^ Ah Yuki already have Zero kid? Ill should read this manga to the end xD

    5. Yup..AhnDaniA..one from each guy. In a way, the love triangle isn't exactly resolved..she somehow still got both guys =P And, they are okay with the arrangement.

    6. I would say what Ren meant wasn't that Yuki is literally in Kaname but more like her memories are in him (a metaphor I guess).^^ Thanks for the translation.

      Delete
    7. True, but I won't be surprised if she is indeed 'within' him. Her mother is inside her because she turned her human before so it would be the same with Kaname. So, they 'see' each other in 'dreams'.

      Thanks for reading ^-^

  6. Whattt??? Zero's child is a girl ⊙_⊙ that's surprising....
    I miss Zero so much, thank you so much Kat for translated this extra ��
    I really hope to see more romantic scene of Zero, he deserve more. Everytime i feel that yuuki doesn't love zero romantically and it's frustrating

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yup.

      Thanks for reading ^-^

      Is that so..and in a way, it seems contradictory..how can it be 'more romantic scenes' if you feel Yuuki doesn't love him romantically?

      Delete
    2. We need more. I really think zero deserves better treatment after 'torturing' that he received back then. He suffers because of love but he cure because of it too. Before those extras, he already proofed that he really loves her, help her and her incest lover, and sacrificed his own happiness. I felt so raged when yuuki did sh*t with her own brother after she danced with zero and they kissed, she denied her true heart again and again. In those dark time lol, i always hope that the author made zero move on and his own happiness but nope, she made him the only one his 'breath and life' is yuuki. Zero will accept everything about yuuki, eventho he was being 'b side' character in his own love life. I said that yuuki doesn't love him romantically because until now, in extras, they just talking about her own incest lover. Zero is too considerate with everything related to yuuki, but he can get more love he deserves actually. Poor zero, i wanna hug him and give him much love and said everything will be okay, you can get other happiness because world is wider than you think. That's what i think xD Sorry Kat, my english is bad and i have bad grammars until forever lol Have a nice day (*'▽'*)♪

      Delete
    3. I see, and I do see your point. Maybe, a little more time in the future when she was pregnant with Ren and had Ren..it will be more about her and Zero minus Kaname. In this chapter, it seems that Yuuki hasn't gotten Kaname out of her system. But then, I might be wrong since in the end, she still went to Kaname after Zero is gone. I guess she cannot live without either one?

      Hehe, the scene has really shocked Zero lovers..just when they were rejoicing about the dance and kiss.

      True..his world revolves around her. I think the same goes with Kaname. Ah..it would be nice but then, Yuuki is his first and last, the only one for him

      No problem and have a nice day, too ^-^

  8. I thought it was said in the series that incest was a norm for the vampires. Yuuki's (and Kaname's) parents were siblings too. SO I guess we can't really impose human norms on these vampires?

    1. It was, Maliha? From the looks of it, it seems limited to the Kuran family. ^^;

      Ya..and I guess with how important their pure blood is..it is better to keep it within the family.

      Delete
    2. I think it was said so in one of their childhood memories... I could be wrong, and may be it's the Kuran family... well, you could be right there.

      Delete
    3. I see. I'm thinking of it more on like royal blood..so royalty before tend to marry within the family. Of course, iirc, they don't know about the genetic problems it might cause.

  11. Thanks for the summary ^^
    Zero’s child is a girl seriously 0_o I didn’t see that one coming that would be funny if we get yuri moments in the next extra .
    Tell me what’s implied here is that yuki’s child was in love with Zero ? and she didn’t want the sis to look like him ?
    The couple of zero and yuki if it can be called that ,is so lame after all this time it’s always about kaname and zero is pathetic for he is okay and happy with it .This manga should’ve been called kaname for it is indeed all about him and once he regain his memories it will be all about yuki …sigh I mean even that color page it make it seem seem as if he was the heroine of the story .
    I agree that unlike their parents ,the sisters seems likeable

    1. I agree with you sist d=(´▽`)=b even in extras, zero didn't get role as main character. All this time is about uggghhhh 'that man'and zero just secondary actor who is like the real brother. It seems like reserve role. I feel sorry for zero ╥﹏╥ it hurt to see him. A lot of fans called yuuki a b*tch, and i can not blame them for that. I just want to see zero smile sincerely :-( But i will happy if he is happy

    2. Thanks for reading, sofia ^-^

      Yup, it got a lot of readers surprised as well as Ai's first love. Chinese readers actually couldn't accept it. ^^;; Hm..probably because of the 'incest'.

      Yup on both. Well, the other one didn't come true.

      Indeed. Well, maybe it would lessen a bit when they had Ren? Hehe, well, we already know about that. Yup, and since Kaname 'survives' the series..is he the Vampire Knight?

      Yup..so I'm conflicted..better not to regain his memories but then...there will be Yuuki.

      Lol..sleeping beauty?

      Yup ^^

    3. Well ,I don’t mind if the sisters got together it’s sort of funny though the whole yuri thing but we got some yaoi vibes from hanabusa toward kaname so why not .
      Well ,I didn’t mind yuuki’s parents being together though it’s sick that your mother is also your aunt and your dad is also your uncle but what’s really sick was kaname and yuuki because she is in love /had a kid with her ancestor /grand grand grand x1000 father /brother and their « love » was just an unhealthy and sick obssesion .
      The sisters so far are likable so it’s okay and it’s funny ^^
      No it doesn’t because to me it’s obvious that zero was just convenient since kaname was gone and it seems like she spent her whole life waiting for him and being in pain because of him but the lamest is zero who was happy with the situation .
      I also thought about that ,I always thought it’s zero if kaname was the king then zero was the knight but it seems like he is the VK .
      Sigh not much hope either way it will suck the only thing one may look for is the sisters and their possible romance .
      Yup and kaname is a lucky princess it looks like each of his prince is taking turn in kissing him and trying to wake him up .

      Delete
    4. Ya..or Kaname and Zero with the 'sucking'. Maybe the mangaka is exploring with what could have been 'Yuuki and Yori'. =P

      I see.

      True. Before, I thought it was like King Arthur's love triangle so Zero was the knight.

      Lol

      Delete
    5. I forgot about that and there were other scenes with kaname where I thought that him and zero were a little bit too close .LOL....I think it may have been better with kanamexzero or better kanamex hanabusa or akatsuki x hanabusa

      But that doesn't seem to be the case anymore .

      Speaking of yuri in the new series of the same author as maid sama which is also a shoujo that I hate very much but I still do check it out when I find and update anyway there was WTH moment and that was a the main girl being kissed in her sleep by one of her female friend that was sort of shocking because I don't recall reading that in a shoujo .And the girl confessed to her that she was in love with her and I was like O_o is this really a shoujo but when I think about it there were hints of boy love in maid sama right with the vise president

      Delete
    6. True. I think it would be an interesting series if it is about Kaname and Zero changing the world and stuff even if they aren't exactly allies or enemies. And, just put Yuuki in the background. =P Unfortunately, I don't think the mangaka can pull it off since the potential politics in this series that are not fully explored.

      Yup.

      That's right..the vice and glasses..forgot the name. Well, I think there are some shoujo with that kind of genre = something different, as long as it isn't full blown about it.

      Delete
    7. Lol! The love-hate between Kaname and Zero would be better then having Yuki chose them both!

    8. True..slolly..I guess the mangaka wants to please both fans of K and Y?

  12. Ai called Ren, "兄弟" - "弟" meaning brother. And the chinese letter "他" = Him is in reference to a guy. If Ren is a girl, she would have use the term "妹" meaning sister, and "她" = Her.

    Unless the Chinese translators read the Japanese raws wrongly, I am very sure Ren is a guy....

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You are right on the brother and sister part of the translation. But 她 is the formal form of 他, which means he/she

      Delete
    2. Tingys, where did she call Ren, 兄弟? That technically means 'brothers' and would mean she is also a boy. It should be '姐弟'.

      As for 他, yes, it is usually for a boy. I re-check this chapter and there is no '他' mentioned.

      I based her gender based on Ai's wish and the official Japanese preview of the next chapter '目覚めた枢に娘たちが語る、失われし物語は…' [http://www.hakusensha.co.jp/lala/mag_laladx/next.html]

      Translated in Chineseby the scanlators as: 醒来的枢听女儿们讲述,失落的传说… : Awakened Kaname listens to the daughters' narration of the lost legend/story.

      Delete
  13. I understand. In daily usage of Mandarin, we would usually write 他. But I think in chinese mangas they tend to use a more formal tone usually?

    Well I haven't been reading the chinese translated mangas for a long time, so I might be wrong on that.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Usually, it is indeed 他. There was even a Chinese scanlator who translates a male pronoun to 她 which throws me off as to who the person is talking about. ^^;

      Anyway, Tingys, as I mentioned above, I'm not basing her gender on the pronouns used in the chapter.

  14. Hello Kat,
    thank you for your translation!! I didn't knew there was a new VK side story... when did it get out? And in your comment, you hinted that there would be another new side story in february ...
    Did I miss something? I hope I didn't miss too much other stories ... After chap 93, I have so far only seen a side story on hanabusa and Yori kind of getting together and then the other story where Yori dies ...

    I have always been a huge fan of Ruka and Kain and I am really happy to see them so close :) Please more!

    1. Sorry, I forgot my other question: in one scene, Akatsuki seem to narrate again and you translated it with “And also, cute. My woman.” Does it mean they are married? Or are they not, because he than would have said, "My wife."?

    2. Thanks for reading ^-^

      This was out on December 10, this year. Yes, there is another on February. It is coming out on Lala DX which comes out every two months.

      Nope, you didn't miss much. It is only recently when the mangaka started working on these 'side stories' again. Perhaps, until it is enough for one volume?

      =)

      I don't think they are married. Something like going steady, it seems. It would make Ruka look bad if she still thinks of Kaname and stuff when she is already married to Kain.

  15. Î guess in the end, Yuuki loved both of them equally? And beared both's daughters? Whenever I remember how well Vampire Knight was at first and how incest- threesomething it ended, I feel fustrated. So much potential and I still feel sad for Zero. I am sure Yuuki loves him too, but still...it's a unfair to in my eyes.

    1. Yes, you can say that, Kisa.

      Ah, true. It has indeed a lot of potential at the start but in the end...

      Unfair or not, well, for me, I cannot complain much about it since he seems okay with it and happy about it.

  16. VK night was the worst manga I have ever read....It's pretty good in the beginning then it keeps getting more and more screwed up and doesn't even manage to redeem itself at the end.. Yuki loved them both because even before she was doing it with Kaname; she mentions she loves Zero slightly before that...Although she prioritises her bro before Zero but she always mentions about her polygamous heart. Then when she is with Zero, she talks only about Kaname especially because of the tragic event she mentions him even moooorrrreee...The distance between them is only because of the tragedy with Kaname and not because she doesn't love Zero..They could have ended the triangle here but nope she gets together with Zero too eventually.. Then after he dies, she still goes to revive Kaname.. I feel sorry for the dudes who love her crazy and the author not picking a single guy is being unfair to both guys... Even widowed people are better in the sense that they don't talk about another person when they are with their new lover..It's just unfair to everyone not just Zero!

    1. True, slolly.

      If you think about it, it was like that from the start. Whenever she is with Kaname, she would think of Zero. And, when she is with Zero, she would think of Kaname. She has to have both and after she became a vampire, she got the perfect excuse that her heart is half human who loves Zero and half vampire who loves Kaname. Forgot the term she used. ^^;;

  17. I thought the child she had with zero was a boy, everywhere else I've read says it's a boy and their child seems to be wearing male clothing....

    1. Yes, everyone thought so and Ren is wearing male clothing.

      The next preview in the official webpage wrote this: 目覚めた枢に娘たちが語る、失われし物語は…
      From the Chinese translation of that, it is implied that both are girls.

  18. Oh My God! Really? Ren is a girl not boy !!! I'm shock very much -[]-

    1. Apparently so, deerlovely.

    2. Pretty sure the scanlation in Chinese refers to Ren as a male, so he should be Ai's brother, not sister.

      "Kyoudai" is a generic term in Japanese and does not distinguish gender, but in the Chinese scanlation the pronoun (他) used by Ai when she introduced Ren to Kaname refers to a male. The Chinese character used when referring to a female is written differently (她).

    3. It could also be the reason why his name is pronounced as Ren instead of Koi.

    4. Hm..Anonymous..if the Japanese term is generic so the Chinese scanlation is making Ren's gender up?

      Are you referring to the Chinese scanlation of the last chapter? I honestly don't see the pronoun 他 in the side story when she introduced Ren to Kaname.

      Their preview for the next chapter also wrote it as:
      醒来的枢听女儿们讲述,失落的传说

      The Japanese is: 目覚めた枢に娘たちが語る、失われし物語は…

      So, even if I googled that, it really meant 'daughters' So, I would think that Ren is a she.

  19. Thanks for letting me read this. I don't know how to react to this, honestly. It's just not satisfying to me... I feel like Kaname deserves so much more than what has happened. THIS ENDING SUCKS.

    1. Thanks for reading, Eve of Shadow ^-^

      Is that so. Hm..in what way? I think Kaname got more = he's still alive in a better world which others had already accomplished. Depending on one's taste/morals, he even got 1 or 2 'young' girls with him =P

      It probably sucks since his daughter fell in love with Zero and his 'love' was with Zero until his end. ^^;

    2. Yes, Ale.

      Ai [long hair] is Kaname's daughter.
      Ren [short hair] is Zero's.

      So, Yuuki has one daughter from each guy =P

      Yes. Zero is Ai's first love.

  21. from what i've read, Ai wished for a sister that she can dress up and suck blood from and if possible, she does'nt want her to resemble Zero. The end result is completely the opposite of what she wanted. Not only that Ren's a male (I think) but also look somewhat like Ichiru and we all know that Ichiru is Zero's identical twin. I find it funny XD.

  22. Hey definitely loved your review..but hate to say it Ren is definitely a boy.
