Diabolik Lovers: Episode 7
The mysterious purple-haired lady from the first episode comes back in this episode. I’m wondering if Yui has some relations with her because it’s obvious she’s interested in her – interested enough to give her a look into the vampire brothers’ past.
Ayato and his mother had issues and I see where Kanato got his angry streak from. The mother favored Ayato because he was the one to take over and so had to study and become bright – so on and so forth- But Ayato didn’t want to study, he wanted to play and get freedom the way Raito and Kanato did. But Mother made it clear that if that’s what he wanted than she’d have no use for him and pitch him over into the river because that’s where all worthless people were to be discarded. At the bottom of the ocean…which connects to that flashback in episode 2 when he was underwater and reaching out for her but she didn’t help.
Shu also had a similar situation with his mother – he was a successor but his mother wanted him to learn discipline and not waste precious time with trivial things like playing with dogs and…being a child. So that was Shu’s struggle while Reiji’s struggle was living in Shu’s shadow and being ignored by their mother. So I guess that was why he later decided to kill her when he was older. But then I remember one of the brothers saying that killing another vampire is the truest form of showing one’s love…
Subaru’s struggle was being kept away from his mother, who seems to have been locked away in a tower. He was also seen with the silver knife. After all that past revelation, the woman put Yui back into the present and Ayato found her. There was some minor chatter before Reiji joined them and Ayato bit her neck, while Reiji went dental on her thigh.
What is happening here? I feel like I’ve exhausted mentioning my many gripes with this show. Nothing makes sense. Nothing is adding up. Why did they even try to work with a plot for this thing?? This should have just been a full blown romance of who can get the human to fall in love and turn her into a vampire with the BDSM works. I’d have liked it better if they didn’t even try to have a plot because it is written so damn poorly.
