No, not really. After all, he was just forcing his views on Saya without considering any of her feelings. I believe his agenda was one-sided and selfish. He wanted Saya as a lover or as a bride.

That's what I've been wondering about Riku.

How come he can hear the cries of the Chiropterans?

Back to the Vietnam arc, Argeno remarked that Riku is capable of hearing the sounds.

A side note for Diva, she might be in personality terms to another character from another anime, Elda, which resembling her, Diva does as she pleases.
She takes orders from no one and is master to her own desires. However, it's safe for me to assume that Diva would not engage in an action that results counter productive to herself.

It's too early to point out or even come to think of it, however, I do not believe that Diva would want to put through all the courses of action that the Chevaliers are taking nor allowing them to determine her fate for much longer.

It's ambiguous even in Japanese, so you have to guess by context.

Thanks you wrex for clearing that up a bit. It would be interesting if he was thought since I had a feeling Amshel is the most evil out of the five Chevaliers ever since he smirked in episode 22.

What I did not like about Blood+ was the way they introduced side characters and killed or abonded them relatively quickly. The special forces red shield team got introduced and killed off 1 to 2 episodes later (The same happened to Elizebeth). I am pretty sure we won't see Min any more.
Don't get me wrong.. I think Blood+ is a pretty good anime and we are only halfway through ... It is just that the army of side characters that they have makes me somewhat disconnected... Remember the pitfall of having 3 main characters in GSD... the end result being chaos and discontent among Gundam fans. Let's Hope Blood+ does not repeat this..

Well this doesn't only happen in Blood +; plenty of shows introduce new characters, (often on a weekly basis), use and dispense with them for whatever reason the plot demands. However, in Blood + I think the characters that have arrived and 'exited' quickly served their purpose without seeming to clutter the story too many loose ends. Maybe Min is the exeption at this point. But we aren't even half way through yet (yay!) and I think will meet Min again. Remember Min was in school while her father was working in Hanoi, which may indicate he also works elsewhere. A familiar face in a foreign land is a tried and tested plot device. So I wouldn't be surprised if Saya and Co bump into Min in some other port of call. The story did follow-up with Kaori after all. I'm sure we'll also meet Kaori again actually, when the series comes full circle back to Japan...

Spoiler for regarding Riku:


Summary and screencaps here.

Diva's seiyuu is Yajima Akiko...she also plays Riku. ^_^ She was Anna in Battle Athletes Victory and R. Dorothy Waynewright in Big-O, among many other roles.

Good question about Anschel... I also wonder WHY Diva made him a Chevalier. We know why Saya made Haji a Chevalier; it was basically out of love/compassion/friendship, but I don't see why a literally bloodthirsty inhuman deciding to give blood to others.

I hope Kai will redeem himself later.

I wonder if Riku's original half vampiric blood would be able to offset his turning somewhat... don't wanna see Riku stuck to his child form..

I blame David for not taking better care of George's kids.
How could he have let this happen to Riku? Saya and David should get into an argument over this because David kept the truth from Saya, brought Riku with him, and didn't look after Riku.

I wonder if Riku needs to share blood transfusions with Saya.
How come we never see Hagi feeding on blood at all? Isn't he hungry?
He was with Saya the whole time and he didn't have any blood (and how can his clothes repair itself).

The series should start delving into the history of Saya's bloodgroove katana soon and where she learned how to use the sword etc etc... Afterall Saya is gonna need a new weapon soon to deal with Diva and her chevaliers.

Can't really blame David for what happened to Riku. Riku did want to accompany them on their journey... Saya and Hagi needs to have a constant supply of blood otherwise they won't match up to Diva and Ansel...
