Kaname's companion tells him to deal with the vampire slaves and leaves him behind. Zero recalls the sacrifice of the vampire ancestress, Kaname's companion, who insisted that the humans drink her blood and tearing out her heart and throwing it into the furnace of molten metal before dying.
Before Zero's arrival at the cemetery gate, he feels the presence of a vampire he knows well (Yuki), he is driven to find out why she is there and walks in Yuki's direction when her scent of blood calls forth a wealth of emotions, a wave of dizziness overcomes Zero as he arrives at the gate with the smell of her blood that fills the air.

Yuki panics and develops a new power to try and flee after Kaname, she is stopped by Kaien. Kaien arrests Yuki as Kaname's fiancée and Kaname is labeled as a dangerous vampire.
Yuki enters the Hunter's Association. She and Zero pass each other without saying anything. Kaien questions Yuki and confirms she knows nothing. Zero pursues a vampire who has kidnapped a child. Yuki requests that the hunters do not interfere when she goes to question Kaname. She tells Aido that she will take responsibility to get the answers out of Kaname.

Zero questions why Yuki is freely running about. Zero checks on Aido and advises him to go talk to Kaien. Yuki visits the Nobles and asks for their cooperation in re-establishing the Night Class to protect the agreement of vampires and humans coexisting peacefully with her. Aido rejoins Yuki's side.
Yuki and the Nobles are back at Cross Academy and Yuki warns them not to harm the Day Class students. Yuki talks to Zero about their opposing views and Yuki worries Zero's bloodlust signals his falling to level E. Yori tries to visit Yuki. Another Pureblood is attacked by Kaname. Hanabusa broods as Yuki attends classes and Yuki has asked for more time to gather more students. Yuki overhears Zero and Kaito talking about trouble and she gathers volunteers from the Night Class to hunt down the troublemakers.

Akatsuki warns Kaname that he will kill him if he does not send Ruka to safety before she is in danger. Sara accuses Kaname of murdering Ouri and asks for Yuki's protection. Yuki worries about Kaname's actions if they are true. She takes her first blood tablets and remarks about the distaste. Maria tells Yuki that she is going to take Zero from her.
Yuki is troubled by her growing hunger. Maria faints while talking to Zero and he carries her back to her room, as Yuki spies them and she remembers her promise to only drink Kaname's blood. Yuki tells Zero she wants to talk to him like before and Zero thinks her behaviour strange. Zero says she needs blood and drags her out to the woods to drink his blood.
Yuki bites Zero with the declaration that she is only doing it to gain enough control to do her duties. Hanabusa asks Senri and Rima to help him snoop around. Yuki does her best to act normal around Zero. Zero tells Kaien he doesn't intend to stop Kaname if he's taking down all the Purebloods. Yuki loses the class president election to Sara, but gets allocated the duties. Kaien confronts Kaname outside Isaya's house.
The hunters tell Zero and Yuki they plan to go against Kaien and allow Kaname the freedom to kill all the Purebloods. Kaien and Kaname fight while Kaien looks for answers to Kaname's actions. Aido searches for Kaname and finds Akatsuki, who leaves him with a bottle of the new tablets and an unconscious vampire woman to take to the Hunter's Association. Kaien launches a lethal slash on Kaname and ends up injuring the disguised Toma. Though Kaito assures Yuki that she will live, Yuki suspects the hunters will eventually do away with her.
The Hunters plan to use Yuki if Zero and Yuki's relationship improves. Kaien brings Toma back to the Hunters' Association for protection and Yagari punches him for it. Yuki's allies start investigating the blood tablets, but Senri has also been eating the tablets. Zero passes on Kaname's message and Yuki acknowledges she is Kaname's chess piece. Kaname has a nightmare involving Rido and Yuki. Yuki confronts Sara over the danger of the new blood tablets.

Zero and Yuki stop an attack by two Night Class students on Sayori and Kageyama. Yuki begins confiscating the blood tablets from the Night Class students. Sara tells Zero about Kaname's secret under the pretense she wasn't able to tell Yuki.
Yuki and her allies begin confiscating Sara's blood tablets as the Night Class Students are influenced violently by them.Kaien talks to Zero about Toma, the blood tablets and Kaname. Hanadagi's bodyguard escapes Sara's clutches and tells Yuki that it was Sara who attacked Hanadagi. Zero warns Yuki that he will not allow her to kill Sara. Kaname finally appears before Yuki and Zero.
Yuki tries to go to Kaname and Zero reveals that Kaname was the one who freed Shizuka. Maria and Hanabusa confront Ruka and Akatsuki. Kageyama, Sayori, and the Day Class Dorm President investigates the weird events at the Night Class Dormitory. Kaname confronts Sara. Zero comforts Yuki as she cries in sympathy and thinks about how she is the source of everything.
Ruka recalls learning about Kaname's plan. When Kageyama encounters Akatsuki and Ruka, his memory spell is broken.Takuma reflects on Sara's words and believes them to be twisted words of a love confession and realizes that he can't help being drawn to Purebloods. Kaname draws his sword against Takuma before fleeing when the others arrive. Yuki faces Kaname with her Artemis scythe. Zero agrees to protect Sara and takes her to the Hunter's Association.
A fight ensures between Yuki and Kaname, but the clash is interrupted by Ruka who uses her illusions on Yuki. However, Yuki manages to see through the illusions despite fainting soon afterwards. Meanwhile, Zero confronts Sara and ends up drinking her blood in front of the other Vampire Hunters of the Association. Takuma goes to help Sara but encounters his friends, Rima and Senri, instead. With Yuki unconscious, Kaname leaves to find Sara.
Kaname finally enters the Vampire Hunters' Association and looks for The Hooded Woman's heart. The other Hunters are torn between fighting and killing Kaname, or simply staying out of his way. However, Zero is able to come up with his own conclusion and goes to fight Kaname with his Bloody Rose. After a heated battle between the two vampires, they end up plummeting from a window in the room and fall under Yuki, Ruka, and Akatsuki, who all encountered each other during the clash. When Kaname tries to attack Zero, Ruka gets in the way and protects him from the powerful Pureblood.
Ruka manages to protect Zero but is greviously injured. A furious Akatsuki attacks Kaname with a fireball, saying that unlike Ruka, he won't forgive the Pureblood as easily. Ruka begs for him to stop but is told by Kaname that her relationship with him is no more. Several of the Vampire Hunters attempt to capture Kaname but he escapes. Yuki offers Ruka her blood to assist with the healing, but the blood is instead taken by Kain and fed to Ruka by mouth. Yuki and Zero follow Kaname and along the way. she thinks about Kaname and Zero. She makes her decision by cutting her hair short again with her Artemis Scythe, reverting it back to when she was human. She engages in another fight while thinking of Zero.
Aido remains at the Academy with a group of Night Class students that were recently relieved of Sara's dark blood-tablets thanks to Yuki's "pure" blood which revived their senses. He wishes to create a new foundation of tablets that can negate Sara's, otherwise as Aido states the Vampire and Human Societies would collapse with the fixation of Sara's tablets. Meanwhile, Yuki's familar is revealed to be a butterfly and she continues to fight alongside Zero against Kaname. Kaien worries the underground furnace will go out and Yuki questions Kaname whether it was really the Ancestress's intention for all Purebloods to die adding it's not right for Purebloods like Kaname to be arrogant and that neither her or the Ancestress wanted things to end up in chaos. Sara manipulates Zero into killing Kaname who is the one who warrants his revenge. Zero refuses and says the only reason he took Sara's blood was to entrap Kaname with Bloody Rose's vines. The Parent metal crawls out of the furnace and Rima pleads with Senri not to go after Takuma but Senri intends to lend a helping hand to Ichijo and says dark places aren't suited for a guy like him. Takuma wants neither Kaname or Sara to die, holding Zero within his grip and invokes Yuki and Kaname to drop their weapons. Takuma admits he's jealous of Zero, whom he says is always needed whether by Yuki, Kaname or Sara. Sara attempts to strike Kaname with an iron cross but is pierced by the "mother metal".
The "mother metal" absorbs the hunter's weapons and the Association begins to collapse. Yagari says the "mother metal" is going on a rampage desiring power from her "children", the weapons. The spirit of the Ancestress appears and says if she doesn't take back her fragments, she'll start to cool down. As the Ancestress' spirit tries snabbing Artemis from Yuki's grip, Zero comes to Yuki's defense and rescues her before rocks plummeting from the ground by the Ancestress could attack her. Zero holds onto Yuki and realizes the "mother metal's" targets are the weapons and the Purebloods. The Ancestress manages to absorb all the hunters' weapons except for Artemis, Bloody Rose, and Kaname's sword which all three keep a tight grip upon. Yuki watches as the Ancestress surrounds Kaname conveying that she can't die until all Purebloods that bring others into darkness are destroyed, and that is the meaning of her existence. Kaname tells the Ancestress she's done enough for over 10,000 years and tells her to rest in peace. He pledges to succeed the Ancestress, and with a mournful gaze at him, the Ancestress' spirit is released. Takuma transports Sara to the top of the Academy's roof for safety. As they gaze at the Association crumbling, Sara tells Takuma to bear witness the destructive nature of the Purebloods, the end of the Ancestress who turned into a monster, and Kaname's foolishness from adverting his eyes from redemption (Yujki) again and again. Kaname leaves Yuki and his bats take off leaving Yuki behind on the floor. Sara asks Takuma if he will observe the tainted actions Kaname will continue to take, and reveals that his feelings for her were manipulated. Their love was never a real love between the two of them, a tragic love, and with one kiss upon Takuma, Sara dies into a heap of crystals. Takuma grasps a piece of Sara's crystal fragments and glares at Kaname, vowing to see the darkness with his own eyes. The Association is completely in ruin, and Zero gazes down at Yuki who hasn't moved since realizing Kaname has left her to fulfill the Ancestress' will. Zero extends a hand and Yuki takes it, stating they'll give chase and that she doesn't want to see another vampire go on a rampage again.
Yuki leaves Yori behind in her room stating she won't erase her memories because she wishes Yori to remember Yuki as she is. Yuki leaves the Academy, now dressed in a style similar to the Day Class uniform but with her own flair. Zero is shown waiting by the gate for the journey. A flashback shown displays the hunters still at the collapsed Hunter's Association, where Yagari is shown shielding Seiren from the rock pummels. Most of the hunters' weapons have been devoured by the "mother metal", except for a fair few including Artemis, Bloody Rose, Kaname's sword, and Kaien's sword. Yuki speaks with the Night Class and they vow to assist her in any way they can, and that it's not sensible to go against the hunters since they're on different sides. They now have a common enemy - Kaname Kuran. Yuki tells Aido to go forth with producing blood tablets of Yuki's blood, and asks her to question Kaname why his father had to die. The flashback ends, and Kaito ends up in a mini fight with Zero, saying he shouldn't go with a Pureblood and that he wasn't ordered to. However, Zero replies it doesn't matter if it's disloyal or running away, but he still wants to go and find the answers to unresolved questions. A short flashback of Ichiru is shown with him stating to "Live on, and fulfill your goal." Zero is now following his heart, just as his brother wished, so Kaito lets them go, and says to himself if Zero can face and endure the pain of losing his brother by a Pureblood, then prove that he can overcome it. Kaien and Yagari overwatch them leave and Kaien smiles saying Zero has found a ray of light (Yuki) to follow, and says no matter how dim the sunlight,Yagari could grasp it as well. Yuki and Zero meanwhile hitch on the back of a carriage to the Kuran Mansion. Yuki unlocks the front door with the key Kaname gave her and Yuki admits how she wants to check out other places that Kaname owns. Zero understands that although Yuki is the fiancée of Kaname, the man who set his family up, Yuki is also the one who saved him with her own hands when they first met. He questions whether the night they met was a set up as well, whether it may have also been planned and manipulated by Kaname. However, Zero says he'll accompany Yuki and see the answers with his own eyes.
Yuki and Zero leave the Kuran Mansion, with Yuki telling Zero it's ok if she had to hurry, since the Mansion where she grew up had bad memories as well as good, and that's it's best to leave it at that. They take a high-speed train to Isaya's house where Yuki wants to ask Isaya, an old friend of her parents' for help. While on the train, although Yuki keeps her need for blood hidden from Zero, she doesn't understand how he's been able to satiate himself over the past year. He reveals he fed on the blood of those contaminated by madness. Yuki tried to get Zero to drink her blood, but he stopped her and said it's none of her business. As he says this, Zero looks shocked at himself for revealing that information, and the two sit back on the seats drifting to sleep. Yuki thinks that they act as though their hearts hide behind a mask, and once the mask is off, it's as if nothing happened between them. Once off the train, Isaya's servant comes to them and offers them an invitation to a masquerade. The masquerade set up by Isaya is also a trap to lure Kaname in; a few Night Class students are seen, and everyone wears a mask to hide their identity. After Yuki shares a dance with Isaya, Zero offers his hand to dance and Yuki takes his hand, and they dance with grace. Yuki and Zero tell each other they seem like the person they used to talk to in the past, although Yuki and Zero's faces inch closer to one another. Yuki has flashbacks of her and Zero of all the good memories, such as the night they met, how Yuki cared for Zero, and them holding hands. Yuki wonders why things ended up this way, where she realizes she's always cherished Zero, and that her feelings for him are real. While Yuki and Zero kiss, Kaname shows up in a mask and hood of his own (some say he's dressed similar to the Ancestress), and Yuki takes off her mask.
Yuki and Zero notice Kaname standing before them; and before they can reach him, Kaname vanishes within the masquerade. As they chase him, a flashback of the kiss Yuki and Zero shared is displayed. Meanwhile, Kaname visits Isaya, who planned the masquerade just so he could talk with Kaname alone. Isaya knows he would end up a target anyway and can't remain a spectator any longer, and sees that Kaname came to request him of assistance. Kaname reveals he will become the new "parent metal". As Yuki and Zero reach the doors which Kaname lies beyond, Rima and Senri barricade the doorway. Isaya is more than obliged to turn Yuki human, and say farewell to his cursed body that refuses to die. Kaname and his companions, including Takuma,fled into the night. Later, as Zero finishes getting dressed, Yuki discusses how she never knew Zero could dance, and remembers a time in which he turned down a girl that asked him to dance. Yuki then asks what would it be like if they met as humans? and wonders if Zero, her senpai, who wouldn't have to stay back a year, if she would dare to openly admit how handsome he was, and that Zero still wouldn't have gotten along with her brother Kaname. The day before the dance party, Zero-senpai would come in covered in blood after a fight with her scolding him fighting isn't good. Then Yuki would bandage his wounds, and wondered if anything else would have happened, if anything at all. Yuki wonders what the human 17 year old Yuki would've done. Zero says she's an idiot, and says they never would've crossed paths if they were human, an impossible fantasy. Just as they are about to leave. Yuki pushes Zero to a wall and starts to touch him, repeating his name several times, and hugs him, then she bites his neck. Zero feels something disappearing and stops her, asking her what's she doing. Yuki uses her braclet to pin down Zero to erase the memories of his relationships with her so that his thirst would be sated. Zero gets angry and begs her to stop, that he wouldn't let her, but Yuki tells him it's neccessary if she doesn't do it, she won't be able to stop Kaname, and she can only do that by turning Kaname into a human.
Yuki erases Zero's memories of her despite him pleading to stop and to not take his memories of her away from him. Yuki cries and says that from now on, his thirst will be subsided. A week passes and when Yuki comes to check if Zero's okay, he points a gun at her and tells her to get out, there isn't a reason for an unknown vampire to worry about him. Yuki tells him he won't be ever able to push the trigger and leave . Cross Academy is now being the Hunter's Association headquarters. Kaname however plans to throw his heart in the furnace to become the new parent. However, he is stopped by Yuki and Kaien says to leave and take Yuki. When they arrive at the mansion Yuki says Kaname plans to runaway and holds him tightly, he replies that he won't. He tells her he should've entrusted her to Kiryu sooner and that his feelings for her weren't a part of his plan, Yuki tells him he should've erased her memories of Zero instead of killing Purebloods. Kaname tells her, "If you don't know where your heart belongs-then I'll show you, Yuki. If you're okay with someone like me." Kaname takes Yuki to their room and they make love. Toma speaks with Hanadagi's wife and calls Kaname a "traitor" for becoming the humans' savior. The Purebloods collaborate to eliminate Kaname. Zero is assigned to survey the Kuran mansion.
Kaname was seen by Yuki as always willing to help the humans because he loved them so much. He was waiting to end his life after his heart grew withered. He felt useful by being needed. Rima and Senri stay together to help Takuma fight with Kaname against the Pureblood alliance who want to stop Kaname from becoming the parent. Kaname tries jogging Zero's memory by biting Yuki who doesn't want Zero to hurt any further from their problems. Kaito wants Zero to retrieve his memories and prove he was right to let go of his hatred.
Kaname stops Yuki from turning him human. Zero talks to Kaname who's put in the dungeon and can tell he's stopped "living" and doesn't understand how he can accept this fate. Isaya grabs Yuki to fulfill his promise to turn her human. Yuki is relunctant and says it should be her decision to make; Kaname bids her farewell saying she's more adapted for the light. Before Isaya could turn Yuki, Zero rescues her and remembers her as the girl who he wants to protect and who refused his protection.
Zero bites Yuki in order to regain all his memories. Then, he hugs her, repeating Ichiru's words, and says that he was afraid to face his true feelings, but that he won't back down from 'excuses' anymore. With Kaname fighting alongside him, they protect the Academy. Zero doesn't want to make Yuki sad if Kaname were to die. Ruka, Kain, Senri, Rima and Takuma protect the Academy with the hunters as the Purebloods launch an assault. Yuki, dressed in the Day Class uniform, runs to the Academy with Aido to protect Kaname and the Academy. Kaname heads to the furnace. He refers to Yuki as the flame of life who gave him the joy of being needed again. He prepares to rip out his heart in order to throw it into the furnace, while Yuki is crying his name, begging him to stop.
Kaname drops his heart into the furnace. When Yuki sees this, she jumps towards Kaname to try and feel his pulse; but Kaname tells her that his heart is melting inside. Yuki tries to remove his heart from the flames of the furnace. Kaname hugs and stops her, saying that his core of life has shifted to within the furnace itself. Zero, who chased after Yuki, stands in shock at what Kaname had done. Yuki blames herself for all that has happened, wishing that she wasn't born and blaming herself for making Kaname how he is. But Kaname tells her that it was her who gave him feelings to protect someone, that she was a ray of light which showed him the way. He then talks about his choices, and about how he doesn't regret them, but also that he should atone for his sins. Yuki cries, thinking about how she can't imagine a world where she can't hear his voice; but Kaname says that he has received enough happiness from her, and that she shouldn't have to regret. While watching this scene, Zero ponders whether or not he should be thanking Kaname due to Bloody Rose almost dying, but he then tells Kaname that he would not forgive him for the grief and sorrow caused to Yuki. Kaname accepts Zero's thoughts, then brings Zero and Yuki together in a warm embrace, saying that he has seen them shine so radiantly and that he has come to understand that they both should be together. With this understanding coming to light, Kaname shuts his eyes for the last time and passes, leaving Yuki in tears. Afterwards, Yuki runs back to the Academy, fighting to protect it. Aido locks Kaname's body into an ice coffin as to preserve and protect him from danger. Later on, Zero confesses to Yuki to stay with him, saying that he won't run away anymore. A long amount of time passes, and Aido finds a book written by Kaname, containing an incomplete method of turning vampires back into humans. Later, even after months and years, the Academy is still accepting vampire students to study in the Night Class. Sayori, has became old, tells her stories to her grandchildren about her best friend, Yuki. The era changes and another thousand years have passed. Yuki is seen near Zero's grave, clutching the now broken Bloody Rose and is planning on bringing it to Zero's parent's home. She then reflects on the past, saying how even though they quarreled many times, he still gave her happiness. Yuki is then seen with her two children. The daughter being Kaname's which is clarified in chapter 93 and a son which belongs to Zero. Yuki revives Kaname by offering her own life and turning him into human, and passes as her mother did before when she turned Yuki into a human. Kaname wakes up as a human and sees the beautiful shining ray of light, and the children give him the message left by their mother to their other father. "I want to give to you, whom I love, the world that I saw when I was a human." The chapter ends with Kaname, now a human, holding a butterfly on his finger, admiring the newfound light.
