Yeah it seems that I am the one who got volunteered to do this post, I know you’re all screwed. (show your frustration by spamming this post demanding that Reverse Vampire, or Briar make the next post, I have exhausted all other methods of persuasion, namely waiting and watching)
So it seems that the resident Vampire Knight fans are MIA I cannot help but wonder what pathetic excuse they have for not blogging this series in the absence of gruppehfurhrer Impz. After all if you’re a fan you would claw your way out of your grave to watch and blog this amirite? So episode seven was grueling march through a lots of Loli-Yuuki and Kaname, I for one don’t like this Kaname fellow and his aristocrats who live off the hard work of the human and class C-E vampires as they sit around and look pretty. As you can expect this is going to show up in one form and perhaps another. I am also drinking a bit of rum and coke…So I apologize in advance if I don’t give Kaname an inch or an ounce of respect.
To the average person this looks impressive, but for a professional I can say that Zero’s aim this day was piss poor. Only one shot at the bullseye and a lot of strays. This tells me that Zero got lucky (and lazy) and accidentally hit the target… Kaname Pumpkin on a stand, Zero. Pumpkin on a stand.
I have to ask how big of loli-con is Kaname any way… I know he looks 15 but how old is the bloke really?
You know Mr. Cross it is only right and polite knock before entering a lady’s room…
As I said before episode seven was an exercise in endurance for me, having to watch Yuuki fawn over Kaname. I can sort of understand her adoration of her hero and savior, though let’s be honest here Kaname probably wanted Yuuki like fine wine. Kaname being the blue blooded useless Noble Pureblood that he is wants to partake of Yuuki’s blood after it has aged for a couple years. One can only lament at Zero’s impotence in this one as he fails to run the butter knife through Kaname’s heart. Well it comes as no surprise that Yuuki was seen off and was instilled with fear as Kaname sucked off that clingy bint Ruka. Clearly Kaname likes his blood ancient rather than fresh. Sadly Yuuki thinks that just about everything good that occurs in her life is somehow linked to Kaname. Poor Zero gets no respect.
Headmaster Cross is a genius, the fellow seems to disarmingly stupid that even allegedly smart people like Keikaku Kanme is dancing to his tune, like when Yuuki was learning to dress herself. He never has to tell people to do things for him; he just comes off as so pathetic that Cross guilt-trips them into doing his bidding, thus brilliantly avoiding any anger or ill feelings.
Yeah those Goth kids always made me apprehensive too. Why couldn’t they go off and pillage Rome like real Goths instead of writing bad poetry and hating their life.
Oh and they eat children…
Zero came off pretty badly this round I can understand if they want to make clear his uber pistol skills, but as a soldier who has to shoot to standard I remain less than impressed. Sure Zero has some neat parlor tricks like making dotted lines, but I would have been more impressed had he been able to not only shoot rapidly and on target, but also with correct magazine changes and for him to do so quickly. Still I think that Zero needs to do the practical pistol course rather than a fam fire for marksmanship. I am being overly mean… Zero does okay as an average pistol wielding stoic. Also next time wear some freaking hearing protection; though do enjoy that lovely smell of cordite. Unfortunately the boy still lacks a witty comeback to Kaname’s declaration of why he let Zero live. I hope zero takes Yuuki and makes the Pureblood regret it. Kaname can go back weeping to Ruka, just as she planned.
Episode eight has some old foggy bint, named Ichio, show up to fap his gob in some political power play as Ruka and Aido interfere. Aidou gets slapped yet again! Sadly it was not a challege to the death… Ruka gets off just fine and dandy, though let it never be said Kaname was being sexist and patronizing towards women. For the Nth time Ruka offers her blood to Kaname but he doesn’t want any, Ruka then cries fake tears. Yuuki continues falling out with Zero because she is still trembling when giving her blood and fruitlessly denies that she doesn’t want to give Kaname her blood. Zero gets a mission to take out a Level E Vampire and proceeds to his target with Yuuki following him thinking that Zero is running away from home. Shiki and Rima have also been tasked with killing the mark but Zero kills it first. It was for the most part a carbon copy of the manga chapter. I just wish Zero was more of a no-nonsense kind of hunter, sadly I doubt that Zero could be that ruthless and make himself my kind of scum.
For pity’s sake tuck in you shirt man its Sunday.
Well the least you could do is try and look like you are happy to see him…
Fake Tears? More like no tears…
News flash genius it tasted terrible…like wine in a box.
Lastly that loathsome Kurenai Maria (a.k.a. you know who) and her 10th rate boy toy (the bloke who brings a knife to a gun fight) are coming to the party next episode. Overall both 7 and 8 were by the numbers with RukaxKaname existing only in Ruka’s dreams while hopefully Yuuki is starting to see that Zero is a hero. I guess Ataksuki is going to be Ruka’s Ersatz (substitute) Kaname from the look of things. Not too sure if Ichio is some one to be feared, sure he may be smart but no one can out smart a well aimed bullet… Not too sure how these Vampires organize their government since it appears that this vaunted senate or council of elders can dictate little to individuals. I hesitate to call them anarchists, but I guess that palace and courtly intrigue will suffice where sound government does not. Quite why those C Class vampires don’t start a revolution to overthrow their intrigue loving “betters” is beyond me though it would amuse me if there was a bunch of Class C blokes moving towards a proletarian revolution. Then again these peasants will probably never be seen much, as social revolution is a bit off for a shoujo series, but I digress.
The Force is with you Young Yuuki but you are not a woman yet…
Your destiny lies with me young Yuuki. Kaname knows this to be true.
You have control of your fear…
All too easy.
Lastly sorry if I am not on par with Impz when it comes to this series, I just blitzed through volumes 1-4 of the manga and most of this series. I like it but I am probably not a hard core fan like most of you blokes. I like Zero mostly because he has a gun and has saved Yuuki more than once or twice…it also does not hurt that he is a gun toting stoic. Let’s hope Impz comes back, soon.
This is what we feared the pale face is a demon the only thing she feels at all is greed. Beneath her milky hide there’s emptiness inside. I wonder if she even bleeds.
