Ep 3 – “The Azure Portrait” / “Ruridama no Mirāju” (瑠璃玉の肖像)

The students of the Cross Academy leave for the holiday. Kaname, along with and Rima Toya, Ruka Souen, Akatsuki Kain and Takuma Ichijo, go to the Aido family residence. However, Hanabusa Aido stays on campus and Senri Shiki is summoned by his lonely mother to come back home. In the Moon Dormitory, Hanabusa recalls asking Akatsuki to investigate Kaname’s family while at the Aido residence. Hanabusa goes to the Sun Dormitory and meets Yuki and Zero, who makes dinner for him to satisfy his big appetite. Afterwards, Hanabusa takes a bath and recalls meeting Kaname when he was younger, noting the change in his personality before and after Kaname’s parents died by means of suicide. While cleaning up, Yuki breaks a plate and cuts herself, telling Zero to drink her blood, a scene witnessed by Hanabusa. He returns to the Moon Dormitory and enters Kaname’s study room, where he realizes Kaname is planning something. Yuki ponders if it would be a good idea for Kaname to turn her into a vampire, but Zero says he would never let her become one, even if it means becoming Kaname’s enemy.
