Plot outlineEdit

Kaname sinks into depression after finding out about Yuki and Zero's forbidden act. Ichijo's grandfather, Asato Ichijo (known as "Ichio") abruptly visits Cross Academy, claiming to be having a casual visit with his grandson, but he appears to have a hidden agenda with Kaname. Ichijo asks Yuki why Kaname is so depressed, which leads to multiple flashbacks about her past, from Yuki's arrive at the headmaster's house ten years ago, to four years ago when Zero first started living with her and the Headmaster, to Yuki witnessing Kaname bite Ruka after she convinced him not to bite Yuki. Zero almost succumbs to drinking her blood while she's sleeping, Kaname witnesses the scene. Kaname tells Zero that the only reason why he's letting him live is because Zero won't betray her. Zero hunts down a level E serial killer who almost kills Yuki. A mysterious new Night Class student named Maria Kurenai arrives at Cross Academy. Zero impulsively pulls his gun out at her, having flashbacks about the woman who turned him into a vampire. Kaname tells Ichijo that these events are not coincidence, and that he has arranged it that way.
