Since I’m too busy to do a summary and I’ll be having a quiz tomorrow on Math, Trigonometry, Physics and Language, I just pasted this from wikipedia:
As Shizuka dies, Ichiru cries and they share flashbacks of their past. Ichiru has been in love with her since they first met. Shizuka ignored his feelings and refused to turn him into a vampire but freely gave him her blood. Even now, Ichiru offers his blood to save her, but she rejects him. Fond of Ichiru, Shizuka can’t curse him like that. Seeing Ichiru cry though, she tells him that they will always be together and pulls him towards her. Zero finds them as Ichiru is licking the remains of something from his lips. Shizuka’s corpse dissolves into the air. Meanwhile, the puddles of her blood everywhere have stimulated Zero’s level E impulses and he collapses. Ichiru taunts him and leaves. Then, Yuki and Kain arrive but only see the Headmaster in the room. He explains that Yagari took Zero safely away. The next night, Kain returns to Kaname with Aidou to report what he saw. Kaname says that even though he doesn’t think Zero would kill Shizuka, that’s how it will look to the Senior Council, to whom he must report the incident. Aidou thinks about Kaname being the murderer and about both Kaname’s and Shizuka’s motives. After departing, he relates to Kain that in the past, Shizuka fell in love with a human whom she turned into a vampire and escaped the prison she was being kept in. Even though the ex-human wasn’t a Level E yet, the Hunter Society put him on their extermination list and the Kiryuus killed him. Ever since her revenge, the Senior Council has hunted her and labeled her as “mad” because she went against their policy of peace with humans. Aidou then wonders why Shizuka risked coming to Cross Academy. He thinks about how both she and Kaname sought each others’ blood for power to defeat an unknown foe. That night, only Rima and Shiki attend class, and Shiki tells her he’s been feeling ill recently. Meanwhile, Yuki is patrolling and meets Kaname. She says she’s worried about Zero. Jealous, Kaname nevertheless leaves to visit Zero, who has been chained in a dungeon-like cell. Zero is losing to his Level E instincts. Yagari and Cross were visiting Zero before Kaname came but rushed away upon hearing a disturbance, suspecting that the Senior Council had come. For Yuki’s sake, Kaname gets Zero to drink his blood, saying that his pure blood will save Zero from madness. All the vampires are startled when they smell Kaname’s blood.
The ending was not that climatic but it ended at the right place where Zero bit Kaname since they can’t go too far than that IMO. I noticed that they kinda revised that scene from the manga and it was less dramatic. I found the scene of Yuuki’s discovery of Zero being a vampire on episode 3 more dramatic than that. Anyway, speaking of the overall first season of this show, I wasn’t really impressed with the animation but story-wise, its was good. Characters are gorgeous as what I always say but they just suffer from bad animation and the songs are fitting from the dramatic OP to the eerie ED. This show is a must-watch for those who are loving the manga and for those shoujo lovers who want to try something new besides from same-old school romance.
Vampire Knight Guilty
– That will be the title of the next season… Yeah, I don’t really have a clue why do they added “Guilty” in there. It will air this fall. Here are some teasers given on the final ED theme:
