With his usual mix of honorable care and sleazy self-service, Kaname reveals to Yuki the secret he's been keeping from her since her childhood - and it's a whopper. He also puts her in a position in which she's finally forced to start facing her feelings towards the mysterious, frightening object of her attraction and the childhood friend she's sacrificed so much to save as the Yuki/Kaname/Zero triangle comes to a shocking head in the wildest, most sordid turn it's taken yet. And as she reels in what might be the most difficult moment of her life, the most interesting friendship in the series takes a touching turn as Aido, who for all his cattiness is probably Yuki's only real friend in the Night Class in his own way, offers her a shoulder to lean on. Meanwhile, Ichijo desperately struggles to be Shiki's voice in the matter of taking down Rido as the possessed boy begins the battle for his soul... Anyone who loves to hate Kaname is really going to get into this one, as his ability to do both the right and wrong things in the same volume are on full display. With Zero in a heartbreaking situation and Aido at his most human, stumbling awkwardly but still managing to be there for Yuki almost in spite of himself with quiet empathy that's probably even surprising himself, the volume is everything that fans like about the series most.
