I just love Mochizuki’s ability to manipulate her readers. I feel as if she makes us assume things even though they haven’t been confirmed in any way. Have these two examples:
Many theorize how the woman from Vanitas’s past could possibly be an Archivite because of her darker skin and white hair. Which is all good (and I personally like those theories) except that their very basis is something that has not been confirmed - why are we assuming that the vampires from the Archiviste clan had darker skin and white hair? This topic has never been touched in the manga but for some reason we sort of just go with it.
Another thing is the bed time story which was told to us in the very beginning. So now every time we think of the Vampire of The Blue Moon, we think of “a
hated vampire known as “Vanitas”” who “was
born on the night of a blue full moon, a symbol of misfortune.
Everyone was afraid of Vanitas and ran him out of the village. […] And in his heart of
hearts he swore… vengeance on vampires born on the night on a
crimson moon.” and about the Book of Vanitas as “a
special book created by Vanitas, imbued with the power to interfere
with vampires’ true names“ which, for now, seem to be the case. But still, it’s just a bed time story and it would be interesting if Mochizuki takes advantage of this to confuse us (aka. the story not being accurate/real).
