Vampire Knight chapter 38

Most of you will be wondering what I was doing when I’m absent from THAT for the past few weeks. Well, I’m like Kon at the picture below:

Kon crying

School has not been always the most favourite place to go, but I’m ‘forced’ to because it’s for my sake and future. I’m quite busy with school, music lessons, school, writing fanfictions, projects, school, school…wait a minute, did I say school 4 times? You know how school is like, someday I’ll rename school into an Overload. I should announce that school is making my everyday life miserable, especially when it rains every single Wednesday. (Ok, that was a lame joke. It’s something personal.) and my back is aching.


Coming back to chapter 38 (I’m not outdated, I’m always on the lookout of anything new for the Spring season, and yes, I’ll be co-writing the VK anime posts with Impz). Moving on, the chapter starts with going back into time, 10 years before Haruka and Juuri went X.X, the stage is focused more about the Kuran bloodline (Showing how Rido looks like 10 years ago was added in the chapter too.) rather than what happened to Yuki after she was back to her vampire self.

In this chapter, it indicates that purebloods has quite a long life which twist the story even further and after exchanging a few words with Juuri, Haruka went on with the fight with Rido (And his servants, who does not contribute to the story and all the hack and slash.) and more fighting (with 110% more blood added!!!)


Rido looked as if he was playing a game of peek-a-boo at Haruka. Go back to reality, yeah?

More lengthy speeches occupy the entire chapter (With no specific explanation why Rido called Yuki his ‘sacrifice’.) with more fights going on, but with our little young Kaname entering the battlefield, Haruka didn’t expect a surprise attack from Rido. Using the sword that could be only used by vampire hunters, Kaname took over the fight after Haruka exchanged more words with Kaname before he shatters into something that looked like glass pieces.

Kaname took over where his father had left off and using the hunter’s sword, but indicates that:



He knew that he could not finish off Rido (The reason is on the next stanza.), his uncle began his last words before disappearing before Kaname. Kaname has ‘killed’ Rido, and we go back to the present, with Ichijou seeing Kaname using Ichiru’s sword piercing through his hand, dripping some of his blood to the Rido body that has not been awaken yet. Ichijou stops Kaname from killing Rido, but ignoring his warning, Kaname let his blood to infect into Rido.

Before leaving, Ichiru asked why he had not completely killed Rido off, and guess what:


Wow, fanciful words, Kaname. Then I am the queen of all vampires.

You’ll see Ichijou’s grandfather and the head of the Hunter’s Association having a small conversation who await for Rido’s revival (Uh oh@!). Shifting to where Zero and Toga is, Zero was held prisoner in the Hunter’s Association, with Toga unable to help him with the tight situation (As mentioned in chapter 37 which I’ve not written.) and the only thing that he does to help him was passing him the Bloody Rose before he left. Leaving Zero with a confused (And probably a clouded mind) mind, that chapter concludes.



After reading the chapter (Maybe 4 times, that is.), I would say I pity Zero just by looking at the last pages. I had a hunch that now Yuki too is a vampire, he’s now a boy who is lost in the middle of nowhere, and no one to turn to.

Lately, my friend and I had been discussing the chapter regularly, and here is what she predicted:

I would have to break this down into choices on what happened to Zero, either he is brainwashed and then later sent off to kill Yuki, or kidnap Yuki and bring her to Rido. But I think the first option is probably out, since I don’t want to see Yuki die. But I would be happy to see Yuki wearing the Night Class uniform. The second choice is Zero will be blackmailed by the Association or the Council and is forced to be with Yuki for some time. I too pity Zero, but this is how the story goes

I would have to disagree with what my friend said in a certain extend. I like Zero very much, and not wanting to see him being brainwashed than being blackmailed. We’ll just wait and see what the next chapter will bring us. Life have to be unfair sometimes, right? And that gives me more inspiration to write my 2nd VK fanfic (Which is in a planning process currently.) which Kaname-lover fans would hate. Not continuing the post, review on what you think about this chapter. Maybe your ideas would be posted in the next post writing about chapter 39.

    This chapter was kinda confusing. Why did he called Yuki a sacrifice? And Haruka converted into glass was like o_O. Anyway, I liked Kaname, even a little, when he went mighty against Rido. How did he became that big jerk, no clue xD. And agree, Zero needs more love! *hugs Zero*

    Somehow this chapter made Haruka my most favorite one in Vampire Knight, surpassing even Zero.

    I totally agree with you Kia Yu! Go papa kuran!

    Have to admit the way Yuki’s turning out to be all oh-Kaname-my-true-love vexes me quite much. The sooner Zero stops contemplating and starts shooting, the better.

    Oh, and seeing Haruka in action was certainly more enjoyable than Kaname’s ever-present emo expression.

    Kaname is the ancestor of Kuran? Does this mean he has been reborn again(and again and again), under the expense of Rido-that’s why he can’t kill Rido? Is that why he calls his father by his name? uh..this is getting complicated..
    and why is Yuki wanted so?

    correct me if i’m wrong, what Zero means by he’s feeling 2 similar forces moving around at the end of the chapter refers to Yuki and Kaname rite cuz he drank both their blood..?

    i don’t see where the next chapter is heading, but why doesn’t Cross-sensei do something? Isn’t he Zero’s adopted father..?

    Rido mostly called Yuuki a sacrifice because he was going to use her body for awakening another Kuran ancestor. The same thing with what he did to Kaname.

    @Kia Yu
    I agreed, I luv Haruka! =D But I still luv Kaname the best. ^^;

    Yes, Kaname is the ancestor of the Kuran’s, but only the spirit has been awaken. That’s mostly why when Rido showed up at the manor of the Haruka, Juuri, Kaname and Yuuki’s and Juuri yelled at Rido saying “You! Trying to take my child again!” or something like that; meaning that they had a child before Yuuki and that is mostly Kaname. And(I’m only assuming) that Rido kinapped him and then woke up the ancestor’s spirit and placed it in Kaname’s body. Plus Haruka kind of confirmed that by saying “…I’m saying this because I know everything…Even so, that doesn’t change the fact, that you’ve been our adorable son.”

    So he isn’t really being reborned thankz to Rido, he just revived him back to the world. And thankz to that, since Rido revived him, Kaname can’t kill him. Yes, since he is the ancestor, he has the rights to call his generation by their name.

    Mostly, Rido wants to awaken another ancestor to gain more pure blood of a vampire and in doing so he’s going to have to use a body, and so he wants to use Yuuki.

    You are correct, is it because Zero has drank both Kuran sibling’s blood. Since, their siblings and they both have Kuran’s blood, it would be similar right?

    Mostly next chapter is about how Zero is dealing with the current situation. If not then it’s about Takuma/Ichiru kills/going together with Rido. Yeah, I wanna see Chairman Kurosu do something too. I wanna see some action from him XD.

    I think Danie is right too. And that the two force Zero refers to are Kaname and Yuki since he’s drunk blood from both of them.

    Poor Zero…Locked away all alone. I know he must be so confused….I know I am! I still think he’ll come around and go back to wanting to be with Yuki. He loves her and I don’t think much will change that fact. I also feel that Yuki will still want to save Zero. Deep down I think she loves him. She keeps going back to that time when Zero almost kissed her. And she was sad when she thought that Zero really ment that he had been still half asleep and not ‘himself’ at that time (BIG lie for Zero). She wanted him to kiss her, so what does that tell us?? *Evil grin*

    This chapter seriously confused me at times! Maybe the translation wasn’t clear.. I’m not sure, but it just got a bit “heh?” At one point I was confused as to whether Kaname was actually Yuki’s brother. I didn’t really catch on to the whole rebirth thing quickly. ^^; But yeah, confusing..
    I’m like craving to read the next chapter. Poor Zero!! locked away, broken hearted ;-;
    I definately have to agree with Darkfalls, he loves her!! Right now he’s just going through things.. But deep down he would do anything for her. And also I think she deep down loves him too. She came to him herself, and when she told him about how her vampire side “ate” her other side she wasn’t being honest. She ran away and even cried, is that not heartbreaking enough? =( Who needs Kaname when you have Zero..
    I’m probably way to into this manga hahaha ^^’

    Also, Zero is hot

    Well, I loved this chapter.I agree with *chi* :Yuki wasn’t honest when she said that her old self was ”eaten” by her vampire side.
    Damn, I love triangles ! I really like this one because the feelings are mutual on every side even if they are hidden. *DarkFalls* spoke out the words for me.Kaname and Zero love Yuki , Yuki loves Kaname and Zero.The problem is that she doesn’t want or doesn’t know how to deal with her feelings for Zero (To be with two guys is wrong, right? Or not…?).Ha ha , I really wish this triangle would never end but I’m pritty shore that one of them will die…Can’t they make a full happy ending? XD (Believe me, it’s better to have two than one :P).
    Yeah, I know I’m to much into this manga ,but can you blame me?

    I belive that Yuuki Does like both of them Zero and Kaname but since kaname has lied to yuuki is a jelouse vampire (He doesnt like it that yuuki cares for zero Probably cause he knows zero will take yuuki away :P) i belive in what shadow cat said Someone is going to die in the manga ._.; i belive it will be kaname cause Shizuko Hio Proclaimed she will make a sinister future for Kaname and when kaname lies and says that Zero Killed her that put another layer on the cake so yea…. but its anyones game from here in vampire knight she could go with kaname or zero i awould just be ultimitly torn if the author killed zero off

    VMAPIRE KNIGHT 39 WAS RELEASED TODAY. I just read it, in raw, even though i dont understand all of it but the jist of it is there. ITS HURTS. kaname is so . GAR. The chapter ends with a cliffhanger, and some, like me, will be probably angry, and screaming ETC until the next chapter comes out to clear things. I might be wrong, but judging from the last scene, its unlikely. and it hurtssss so bad T_T”

    Rido wants to revive another ancestor with yuuki? I was thinking he wants yuuki gone so that way he can take the throne and minionize Kaname. After Kaname’s talk with Zero I realized that he’s been setting Zero up all along to be Yuuki’s husband, as its starting to appear Kaname no longer wants to live. He wants to go back to the grave, and I think he intends to sacrifice himself in the end to be-rid of Rido once and for all… problem is Zero’s too immature to handle the concept of being husband to the vampire queen. Poor Cross has a lot of work to do on that kid and unfortunately I think Kaname’s counting on Kaien to make sure he comes around. Poor Cross.

    You know how he was calling Yuuki, Juuri all the time, maybe he was planning on putting Juuri’s consciousness in Yuuki’s body. Who knows.
