With the main characters separated, can the series stand?

What They Say
The Night Class at Cross Academy has been abolished. Zero still attends the Day Class while carrying out his duties as a vampire hunter. Yuki now lives hidden away at the Kuran residence with Kaname, but can she embrace the life of a pureblood vampire?

The Review!
As the volume begins, we join Kaname and Yuki, having left the school and their old lives behind. On their way to the old Kuran house, where Yuki is to stay from now on, Yuki apologizes for still having feelings for Zero, and Kaname asks Yuki she can stay by his side despite how tainted he has become. Regardless of their faults, however, the two decide to remain together.

From there, we rejoin Zero, who has thrown himself fully into his hunter career in order to quench his mounting bloodlust. Due to his great skills, he is even being considered to be the next head of the hunter society. Meanwhile, Yuki struggles with her newfound vampire nature, and her need to drink Kaname’s blood.

As the volume comes to an end, a vampire soiree is held in order to foster relations between the new orders within the vampire and hunter societies. With both Yuki and Zero present, and Yuki’s human friend Sayuri having been brought in secretly, the stage is set for an intense confrontation.

In Summary:
If this volume is any indication, the latest twists may just have left this series significantly more uninteresting and detached. Actual confrontation and action has been pushed to the wayside, leaving little but constant self loathing all around. Not only that, but the central character of Yuki seems to have become so muddled and indistinct that she’s difficult to relate to anymore. Hopefully the next volume will manage to return the series to something enjoyable.
