Kaname's voice sounds... strange to me. It's like he's recovering from a bout of a smoker's cough. His characterization is an archetype of the fallen hero, or something like that. He's a bit too perfect for my taste, but he's certainly acceptable as a cool character. ^^

I completely understand you...

I don't really hate Kaname, but he is too cool towards everyone eles. Makes it extremely hard for me to understand him...he feels too distant unlike others(same to Zero, but double that. What's up with his attitude? Now HE is the real jerk there...)

lol. Too bad I already posted all my discussion about Kaname in the manga thread. Oh well. Just one thing to say is that Kaname is a misjudged and a misunderstood character; both by those within the story and by the readers.

Nice post but. If it isn't for Kaname. Zero would be long dead ages ago. Be thankful or else this manga would have ended like w/in 4 volumes or so.

EDIT: Oh yeah I'm not a KanamexYuuki fanboy. For all I care Yuuki can just chase Zero(like what she always do) and tell him she loves him and all that crap. Ruka or Seiren is the one for Kaname. Don't diss him. He's the only character in this trainwreck series who knows what he needs to do enable to secure the one he loves and himself. Everything just lands on the palm of his hands. Kaname's lucky. lol.

To both NoOneKnows and PreSage. Usually I really hate it when at a certain character discussion thread someone quotes me and writes all kind of subjective arguments on my post. People please this thread in all is based on ones view on a certain character and I just stated mine. So I will not argue with your opinions, I'll just add some more depth to mine.

Quote:
First of all, I hate the way he acts like HE IS NOT EVERYONES boss and goes on about that friendship crap when in fact he is just psychologically controlling them. (vampires)
I'll explain more on the psychological part. Something like an ultimate obedience does not exist, neither is one born with the power to make people obey, at least not literally. (unless you have Lulu's geass )
What makes people obedient is either
1.superiority (in power, rank, ability) example: your teacher, boss, parents, king, government...
2. respect example: can be some of the above + friends except that you don't fear him/her
3.bonds, can be like respect or it can be deeper like for a lover.

All these points can make you obey someone in a certain situation. So lets take Kaname's case here. He claims he is not forcing anything on anyone, well nope that is not true even in the most primary case. So my claim here is, that he is perfectly aware of his standard, power and the fact that all the vampires are obedient to him because of at least one of the above stated points. In Ichirou's case he was influenced by his grandfather and Rido.

Quote:
Second, he said himself that he has an evil character...but no, you are not evil you just have major issues.
If I would claim that he is an evil character I would be unjust to all the real evil/murderous bastards out there in anime. That is why I said he has issues. (be it Yuuki or for his own personal benefit) So either the mangaka made him up to be the sucker in the end or she just tried to much while making him up. If you ask me, it's the first.

Quote:
Third, I hate the way he uses Zero.
As I obviously didn't read the latest chapter while writing the above statement, I must say my point was right on. Even before ch.39 he literally used him as a shield for Yuuki, knowing that he would never betray her. (again his psychological influence) After reading chapter 39, this literally became a fact. He is making use of him like a puppet for his own benefits. At this point I (we) am/are not really certain while he himself can't kill Rido.. but using him like that..well basically it relates to the first point, as he uses his verbal attacks on people.

Quote:
Fourth, for forcing Yuuki to be his "lover" in return for her past.
Again his psychological/verbal skills/attack. Of course, she will agree on the lover part, he didn't really give her a choice there, did he? Since she wanted to know about her past. And either way, even if she wouldn't agree on that, he would still awaken her because of Rido. So again he uses his wit to pressure her.

Quote:
Fifth, he is sneaky schemer.
Ok, I'll have to take your comments her for an explanation since you all agreed on it.
Yes, everyone is scheming, but they are quite open about it compared to Kaname.
Oh, and I didn't really solely base the "sneaky schemer" on all the revelations about the vampires and council...I was aiming it to Yuuki and Zero too. If you know what I mean.

Quote:
Sixth, he bitch slaps Aidou a lot
As it seems pretty irrelevant, in my opinion it shows his true character.
It shows his natural tendency of being the boss.

So to sum things up, I generally hate people who make use of other just because they are a little less witted, not to say a little ignorant. I consider it equally as a verbal attack, only that it's not really visible to the one being used. That's why we, the readers are here, to point it out. Yuuki don't be deceived!
