Amidst the academy's ruins, Zero points his gun at Yuki...A true-blooded vampire and a hunter...Even if they wished otherwise, their destinies would forever be at odds with each other. After Kaname's bloody deed, new paths lie ahead for both him and the Night Class students. As the Academy arc draws to a close, Yuki and Zero turn and walk away from each other, sworn enemies henceforth. What answers do they have for the future?
Shojo Beat MangaEdit
Rido is gone, but the battle rages on at Cross Academy. The Night Class is still under attack, and Headmaster Cross has joined the war to protect his students. Zero, however, has vowed to get rid of all the Purebloods-including Yuki!
Zero contemplates his relationship with Yuki and eventually tells her that he wouldn't have minded if she had killed him. Meanwhile, Maria Kurenai spies on Kaname and witnesses his destruction of the Vampire Senate. She notifies her parents, who informs the rest of vampire society. At the academy, the Headmaster battles the Vampire Hunters and kills the Association President. He is then arrested. At the fallen Senate building, the Pureblood Sara Shirabuki arrives to find an unconscious Takuma Ichijo, and she apprehends him to find out more about Kaname. Meanwhile, Kaname arrives back at the academy and gets into a fight with Zero, but Yuki stops it before Kaname could deliver the final blow to Zero. Kaname leaves them alone for a few minutes, and Zero kisses Yuki. They then go down their own separate paths, with Zero vowing to kill Yuki the next time they meet. Yuki reunites with Kaname and they both leave the academy together, the both of them spotting Zero carrying Ichiru's body on their way. Later on, Aido, Ruka, and Kain are on the train so they can try to find Kaname and Yuki. Kain remembers some of his past experiences with Kaname and wonders to himself if the day when he'll walk down his own path will ever come.
