More VK Fanbook Translations - Kaname

Since it took me so long with Zero, I decided to finish Kaname's profile because I know most people wanted to read Zero's and Kaname's profile the most. I know it was meant to be Yori's profile before Kaname's, but I was closer to finishing his then hers. Plus, Kaname is my favourite character so I couldn't resist to translate the rest of his!

So here is his lovely profile: 

And the translation: 

Belongs to: Cross University, Night department

Age: 18 years

Height: 184cm

Special field: Allmighty

Special ability: allmighty

Level as a vampire: pure blood type

Family: Father (Haruka), Mother (Juuri), both dead

Preferred food: Food made by Yuki

Type of person he likes: A serious-minded girl who waits for him in the snow to arrive.

Hobbies: reading, playing chess, thinking of Yuki

How he spends his holidays: doing all sorts of work; on days when he cannot meet Yuki he sleeps on the sofa in a huff.

The fashion he likes: Haute couture

I found it interesting the Kaname is allmighty. I thought that even purebloods have a power that they are better at using then others, so I was looking forward to seeing what Kaname's special power would be. But I guess I should have expected something like this. He is the person who created vampires after all, so it seems right for him to be the strongest.

Oh, and I want to credit maao15 for the scans. And my family as well who have far better Japanese then me and have helped me translate all the profiles so far.

He's not all mighty! If anything happens to Yuuki he will become like a little baby. Also, he has the problem of constantly having to control his emotions or things will explode. THat's quite a limitation.

Thank you Dear~!
Always an awesome job ! <3

Haha.. Kaname the almighty who likes "A serious-minded girl who waits for him in the snow to arrive" XD

That is just so cute.

Can I ask, what does it say right beside the profile? (the big words) I can read the hiragana, but I don't the kanji of the first sentence.

It says, 'Something inexusable has been forgiven. Everything for this day....'

Oh thanks! ^^

Thank you so much for the translation! Kaname is really adorable... and his fixation on Yuuki is so obvious. xD;;; And unless I'm mistaken, the 姫 kanji in Yuuki's name actually means princess, so it's probably an indirect reference to her. ^_^ That's so cute.

Thanks!! You're the best!
Yes, Yuuki is referred to as the Kuran princess, Pureblood princess and as the Gentle Princess Yuuki (Kaien named her like that after a legend when he gave her human name. I'm sure he wanted to keep her real name.) It is said in both anime and manga. The princess truly isn't Sara who is just as cold as most of the other vampires who Kaname doesn't like! It's just so sweet to see how much he longs for her! ^_^

His age
Doesn't it mention, in parenthesis, that his age is calculated according to vampire years? I wonder if they made that issue clearer in the fanbook somewhere and that we knew just how many vampire years it takes to equal our concept of 1 human year of maturity. In any case, we know Kaname is the oldest. I hope one day we'll know how he adapted in his kid's body and if he suddenly felt like playing kid games once more like when he met Cain, Luca and Aidou.

I find this topic interesting because, as hinted by Ichijou at his birthday party, if vampires age more slowly and he's just reached maturity (18 years old in human years/maturity), then it means their personality also ages more slowly. Otherwise they wouldn't act like teenagers so much, right? Or they wouldn't play in sandboxes if their type of interests grew according to their real age. They'd be bored by kid games way before their bodies caught up to their level of maturity. Makes them more composed and knowledgeable and not so surprised about the world around them anymore, but it still shows in their attitude, their not being married and their actions that they are not adults mentally.

Re: His age
In the fanbook it has a chapter called 'The Vampire Report' where it might possibly say how many vampire years are equal to human years in accordance to age, but I haven't looked at that part yet, so I'm not sure if it will be >_< . It just seems the most likely.

I say though that you are right in that vampires age by how mature they are, and therefore they mature and age slowly.

When I reach the Vampire Report I'll see if there is anything there.

Re: His age
Thanks! I got the confirmation that the profile indicates that Kaname's age is equal to 18 human years. Must mean that from now on, he will stop 'aging' in body like the other Night Class students. Unless Purebloods age differently. Of course we're talking about 'this life' as Kaname Kuran, not as the Ancestor Kuran. So his body is 18 years old while his soul is very old!

Thank you very much

How he spends his holidays: he cleans up the room; on days when he cannot meet his princess he sleeps on the sofa in a huff.

Kaname cleans up his room by himself?
LOL can't imagine this (Kaname with the vacuum-cleaner XD)
Apr. 19th, 2009 09:29 pm (UTC)
I'm not actually sure that it means he cleans his room. I thought there was a maid for that? *lolz* I think it meant he finishes up various work. And on days he can't see Yuuki, he lies on the sofa and sulks. (Almost as if it's not worth getting up and doing anything if he can't see Yuuki. XD)
Apr. 19th, 2009 10:16 pm (UTC)
that make sense)
But it's fun to imagine him as a housecleaner :D
Apr. 19th, 2009 04:09 pm (UTC)
hahax.. the princess inkanji is actually refering to Yuki as that is also her name. XD

Apr. 19th, 2009 08:22 pm (UTC)
lol he cleans his room what i big surprise lol and yea princess waiting in the snow . we know its yuuki but there is a think why he is waiting in the snow is this refering when he saved her ?

thanks for the transaltion
Apr. 19th, 2009 09:43 pm (UTC)
When he saved her...?
Hmm... That wouldn't really make sense because I imagine that was a pretty traumatic experience for him, too. (There's nothing remotely romantic about seeing your loved one in such a state and having to pretend you don't know her. T_T)

I think it refers more to Yuuki eagerly waiting for him in the snow when he went to visit her every year. Their special anniversary was always around wintertime. ♥
Apr. 19th, 2009 11:32 pm (UTC)
i can't imagine Kaname cleaning his room xD with the apron and a feather-duster and all LOL. and he's so tall :D

thanks for translating again ^^;

Apr. 20th, 2009 12:08 am (UTC)
thanks for the translation!!!

no, i think by "princess" he means "Yuuki", yuuki's food, thinkg of her, etc!, is all Yuuki,cuz remeber "yuuki" means "yasahii hime"= "gentle princess", so her name uses the kanji of "hime"
and Yuuki is the Kuran's princess XDD
Apr. 20th, 2009 02:15 am (UTC)
thank you for your hard work! :3
i was curious if the vampires have blood types,
but i guess not.

it would be cool to have the same blood type as the Almighty though. xD
Apr. 21st, 2009 09:22 am (UTC)
Err, it doesn't says "princess" anywhere. It says "Yuuki". XD *lol*

The name means "gentle princess", but it's pronounced "Yuuki". ;)
Apr. 21st, 2009 12:35 pm (UTC)
I think "雑多な仕事を片付け" means "doing all sorts of work"
and "優姫" means "Yuuki"
Apr. 26th, 2009 05:34 pm (UTC)
Er, sorry, my bad.
I'll change it
Apr. 27th, 2009 06:25 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much! I don't mind if you make any mistakes, I like it, though.
