This weekend is going to be another hot vampy weekend but I’m not complaining. Vampire Knight Guilty is heading towards its season finale. Only 2 more episodes to go. I am sure most viewers following the series would have read the numerous episode reviews and summaries elsewhere. But here I am, intent on playing catch up with the previous two episodes with my wall of screenshots and random bits of impressions along the way. I’ll be posting this in two parts with the precious little time that I can hog at my brother’s computer cos I’m still on my long holiday break.
**VK Manga news alert: The new VK manga chapter 46 is on the way too. Just a little hint about the latest chapter…choices have been made and it’s fill with parting sorrow ;_;
**Edit (29-12-2008): Episode 11 screencaps and impression is up on page 2 of this post. Cheers!
First up is Episode 10: 戦いの序曲 ～プレリュード～
Ep10 - The Overture of Battle~Prelude~
Lots of cool vampire powers on show in this episode and Kaien Cross is awesome too. Rido’s finally awake and everyone feels the bad vibe in the air. Zero is undergoing some kind of transformation too. Yuuki is still trying to play guardian. So it seems Kaname’s chess pieces are now in place , waiting for Rido to make his move. And he reveals Zero as the knight.
Episode 8: 追憶の螺旋 The Spiral of Recollection
"All I can feel across the door is...."
Episode 7: 茨の口づけ The Thorny Kiss
My oh my! What a fabulously exciting episode this is…especially after I’ve just came off reading the scoop on the latest VK manga chapter 45 which is up at some chinese forum…woot! Yes, I am so looking forward to one bloody explosive VK weekend anticipating the latest chapter scanlations to come through so I can share my excitable impressions here. That and I’m wondering if VK lovers elsewhere has seen the other Vampire love story being aired in Cinemas this week i.e.Twilight. But still, nothing can replace my enthusiasm in waiting for the latest VK manga chapter because it’s the best yet!!! *Shudders* at the thought that I’m close to fangirling! I’m in a good mood despite the delay in posting the current episode updates. Episode 07 impressions and screencaps plus brief summary are below. Read on… Continue reading
Kanon Wakeshima’s 2nd single ‘Suna no Oshiro’ is out now. The title track is also the outro theme for Vampire Knight Guilty. Suna no Oshiro is quite similar to Still Doll in terms of having a creepy atmospheric build up at the beginning of the song which then breaks out into the dramatic chorus. I like the cello playing on the track as well. Continue reading
Episode 6: The Fake Lover 偽りの恋人
I just got round to watching episode 6. The pace slowed down this time because I was expecting that they’ll squeeze in the Rido/Shiki and Kaname meeting scene but they didn’t. In a way, it was good because the anime has so far been moving a lot faster and we’re near the half way point already. Continue reading
Episode 04: The Devil’s Quickening ~Libido~ [悪魔の胎動 ～リビドー～]
Gosh, I’m a little slow with this week’s episode update of VKG. Having stupid problems with crappy broadband connection isn’t helping much either. It’s good that the subbed version is out a bit earlier this time. Not that I depend on it as I usually watch the raw version first to get the screencaps. But anyway, the highlight of this episode is seeing Rido in his bloodbath. Continue reading
Episode 3: 瑠璃玉の肖像 ～ミラージュ～
Finally managed to get a decent Raw of the latest episode. It means better screencaps and they are plenty for me to play around with. This week sees more screen time for Aidou. In fact there’s emo Aidou, angsty Aidou, sparkly Aidou, sulky Aidou, jealous Aidou, mischievous Aidou, Aidou in a bathtub and chibi Aidou. There’s even chibi Kaname in the midst of Aidou’s thoughts and flashbacks. I guess it can’t be help as this episode is mostly about Aidou’s anxieties and doubts over Kaname’s actions in regards to witnessing Shizuka’s death and, his wavering loyalty. Lots of flashbacks on how he first met Kaname. We get to learn abit of Kaname’s childhood past. Chibi Kaname and Aidou is so kawaii. Continue reading
