Diabolik Lovers Episode 4 - Everything Goes to Hell (NSFW)

Well, I had a feeling an episode like this would happen sooner or later...
Not stalking, just watching 
So it starts off with Heroine finally finding the phone she has been seeking since episode 1. As she attempts to use said phone, she notices the Emo Shota watching her, and is frightened. She tries to be casual about it, and the Emo Shota asks "don't you understand why I'm here?"  He tells her he and his "Teddy" are thirsty. She apologizes to him and the bear. He tells her not to address Teddy as though she knows him (well OK then) and that he's the only advisor he needs (not sure if acting like a child, or crazy, or both).
She gets Emo Shota coffee. He has a shit fit. He smacks the coffee out her hand, and starts yelling at her telling her he hates bitter things (then be more specific next time). He then proceeds to call her worthless. She apologizes, but he screams at her some more, telling her she doesn't mean it.
 She asks what he wants from her, he tells her he wants her to figure it out herself. She offers to buy him something else, but he says he's no longer interested.
No, you're just extremely intimidating, bipolar, you dress like an Emo five-year old, carry around a bear and act like it's people, and are a vampire. I wouldn't call you the object of hatred, but perhaps a recipe for soiled undergarments.
He then asks her if the coffee splashed on her fingers, and if it was painfully hot (suddenly, he cares). He then licks her finger, and questions her whether or not she hates him, and if she wants to learn more about him (???). She tells him she doesn't hate him, and she would indeed like to know more about him. He then walks away telling her to make the effort to understand him (lol wut). Also, he left her bag on the roof...as punishment, also, the phone's been broken for weeks.
Serious Face: OFF
As Heroine goes upstairs and retrieves her bag, she notices someone singing love to the sky. Low and behold, it is the Fedora. She eavesdrops for a second, only for this to happen:
Serious Face: ON
My heart momentarily stopped when he said that
He discovers someone is watching him. She hides behind a wall, but he finds her. He grabs her neck, licks her, and bites her, sucking her blood. He seems to have realized something, and stops to think about it. Of course, Heroine uses this opportunity to run...into town. She finds a phone, and attempts to call her father.
SURPRISE!
The Fedora answers the phone.
How, you ask? You tell me.
Over the phone, the Fedora tells the Heroine that he knows everything about her.
She runs out of the phone booth only to bump into...Fedora..
He asks her if she enjoyed her short-lived freedom (so close...damn it).
*Sniff, sniff* I could swear I smell a plot in here somewhere...
Suddenly, a man by the name of Tougo Sakamaki appears on the giant TV on one of the buildings. Fedora explains that it's him and his brothers' dad, and that he hates him and blah, blah, blah. Then Heroine starts staring hard at the image on screen, muttering the man's name, she then mumbles "Karl Heinz.." (surprising Fedora) and passes out. Fedora looks at her with a stunned expression, and asks the comatose Heroine "who are you?"

Heroine then wakes up in her room, and runs out to perhaps attempt another escape. She finds a church outside, and goes in there to pray. Fedora arrives, and they argue about religion for awhile (an arguement I'm sure everyone has at some point).
Crap, his hat fell, I don't know what to call him now
During this confrontation, the fedora comes off the man's head. As things get worse in this religious confrontation, we see this guy again:
'eey, people aren't allowed in there!
Mystery man finds a hidden doorway behind a bookshelf. He walks through an absolutely gorgeously decorated hallway, and comes to a dress that is ripped up and bloody in the chest area. Who does this dress belong to? 'Tis a mystery.
Oh, so it's okay if he does this somewhere else?
Somehow, things escalated to rape. It was only a matter of time. He asks her if she's angry, tells her that her eyes are fascinating (they're pink), and to go ahead, that it's cute (?). He tells her to get angrier if she wants, and he even gives her permission to call him names (I think that fedora was holding his sanity) all while his face is flushed.
He tells her that no matter how hard she tries, she will never be a match for him, because he's inhuman. He begins to unbutton her shirt, all while telling her that she'll submit to him and show him places that she "has been too embarrassed to show anyone."
If this hasn't registered to you yet, she's about to get raped.
For real.
No joke.
Yup.

He kisses her thigh twice, then bites it. After he finishes sucking blood from her thigh, he asks her if it hurts (no shit, it hurts). He calls her a "poor thing" and tells her that he'll make it hurt even more. Heroine's eyes are tearing up, and she looks like she's holding in her urge to cry. Then the former Fedora lets her in on a "secret."
Well, in the case of quite a few churches, it's not like they don't have blood on their hands (get it? Blood? Ta ha ha!)
So it turns out, her church sent her to the house of rapists! Do you smell controversy? I do!
Heroine is shocked, and former Fedora is enjoying every second of this. He picks up where he left off, whispering to Heroine follow him down to hell. He then says that no one has been saved by their belief.

Episode rating 2/10, as much as I love religious controversy, I hate the rapey-ness of this show. I felt disgusting after watching this, like I want to take a bath...right now. On a less important note, what exactly happened in between this and last episode's events? They always seem to forget these things....

  1. They are trying to merge routes, that's why some characterization is inconsistent. For instance, Shuu hated every fiber of Yui's presence around him if she picked him as her owner, he wouldn't even touch her until she practically wormed herself into his life, and when he does she's already in love with him. The anime makes him bipolar because they cut their development, he would just sass her with words, but wouldn't care to touch her (hell one time he let himself be beaten up by some people because he didn't care to move) which was rather cute for um. the VN setting, Subaru also gets a 'vanilla' route because you can see they fall in love with her and leave the household and lifestyle they hate - if you rewatch and pay attention to episode 1 Subaru's aggressiveness isn't directed towards her but her situation: he breaks the phone so Ayato wouldn't toy with her, he tells Reiji to stop sugarcoating her situation to be frank, he hates these mindgames, he hates he can't do anything about it because his mother had the same treatment by his father and the triplet's mom and she's currently crazy. Her screams are still present and so his impotent rage, that makes him lash out when Yui reminds him of his failure. I'm sure the anime will remove this and just have him trash things around Yui due to lack of time.

    The rest are rather creepy, specially Laito and Reiji. Kanato is pitiful because he's insane.

    1. I'm curious as to how the seemingly normal one (Reiji) manages to be one of the creepier routes..

      Delete
    2. (spoilers)



      Reiji is the reason why Shu is broken. Reiji's jealousy led him to burn the village Edgar was, killing him*. Edgar was this mortal boy Shu befriended after he escaped his house and lessons to be the heir of the househose. He loved to hang around with, because he hated the vampire lifestyle and liked someone treated him like a person. Reiji spied on him once and didn't approve Shu human-loving ways for being unsightly and against their pride, so he took care of it, giving Shu the trauma of fire, destroying his happiness and self-esteem by making believe it was his fault Edgar and his village was set on fire and he was worthless, making him the deadbeat guy who wouldn't care if a car runs him over as you see today. He's a control freak, who hates 'imperfection' for his own self-esteem issues of knowing his mother (who he had murdered by Yui's father, and who he wants to resurrect and murder himself over and over again) preferred Shu and neglected him. He loves to discipline Yui with chains and whips, also to experiment on her (with animals included, animals he drugs with aphrodisiacs and sets on a helpless Yui). The contrast of the brothers is very stark. In Reiji's route, Shu acts like a distant friend, who never lays a finger on Yui (even if Yui, influenced by an external force, is throwing herself at him), explains things to her, is worried when she seems hurt in his own aloof way, reminds Reiji he can't kill her when things get out home twice. In Shu's route, Reiji tries to kill Yui in one of the endings, because he hates to see Shu back to the vampire he used to be, he wants him broken again, so he wants to hurt him (Shu has to turn her into a vampire so she would live).

      The series would have probably been very different if Shu (only vampire without mother trauma) wouldn't have lost his will to live. Because he loves human beings, having learned from his parents the philharmonic ways (minus being pushy for 'rape' parts, he's just too lazy, and his mother's nastier side which are more a reminder of Reiji).

      *Seemly, apparently Edgar might return as a vampire in the sequel. Should be interesting to see how Shu changes and Reiji rages because it'll likely rose his brother and he'll take his place as the one who manages the house.

    3. Wow, that sounds like a pretty engaging story (minus the S&M parts, that's a bit too...far..), hopefully they'll manage to include more of that in the anime

      Delete
    4. My message disappeared. I don't think they'll cover the routes in its integrity. This is meant to be a promotion of the show. As someone who played the game, it's really dark in general, and the least dark routes are Shu's and Subaru's (Shu in general occasionally helps her in two routes, Subaru's too, he exiles Subaru and Yui in the good end, from the house, allowing them to break free and live without concerns. He's Japan's favorite Diabolik Lover for a good reason). The abuse is still present but more subtle and less over the top than stabbing her with a fork like Kanato does or forced implied bestiality as Reiji does for kicks.

    5. His route endings are funny though. He never quite gets a "happy" ending (aside of the heavens ending), the good end is Yui becoming near Cordelia and turns him into her personal dog.

      PV of the character songs, some are out yet. DL has nice seiyuus. The Subaru and Ayato songs are unfitting but the rest are perfect. Stark contrast of Shu's sad requiem to the predatory songs of the othe rguys.

    6. Ooh, nice! Thanks for the links!
      Also, that good end is perfect.

      Delete
    7. No problem. Here are the lyrics of the songs I think are fitting for the characters (1/3):

      Kanato's song: Ripper★CARNIVAL

      Welcome princess This place is the castle of dreams no one knows of
      Sad things Painful things Forget about everything
      I'll sing you a enchanting fairy tale

      One Close your eyes 'Thank you'
      Two Shut your mouth 'I love you'
      Three Cover your ears 'I love you very much'

      Hey, you heard it right? The lovely sound of screams
      Teddy woke up to the smell of the laid butter
      If you have a knife then you're all set♪

      'Now, let me cut you up'

      Come, and let's dance in the palm of my hands
      Now to the left and to the right! Complex wounds are flourishing!
      A mysterious ginger cookie man and a deep red tea
      Let us dance a fun and enjoyable waltz together!
      This is the beginning of a never-ending Ripper★CARNIVAL

      Naked princess With that stupid head of yours that doesn't understand a single thing
      Telling everyone to believe in things that cannot be exposed Forget about it all
      Keep on being greedy with that innocent smile

      One Don't eat it all 'Is it delicious?'
      Two Starting to feel full 'Want to eat more?'
      Three If you're going to throw up 'You're beautiful'

      You finally see it by now, right? Your ugly appearance
      Drink the smelly banana juice and fall into bewilderment
      Once we have decided the pieces, we'll tear them apart♪

      '...... always keep smiling, okay'

      Come, and let's go crazy in my delusion
      Up and down Look at the rabble of men's corpses blooming!
      The bizzare sweet little girl smiling like a black cat
      The painful reality that you made
      The never-ending Destruction★CARNIVAL

      '...... fufuu, is it still not enough?'

      Come, and let's dance in the palm of my hands
      Now to the left and to the right! Complex wounds are flourishing!
      A mysterious ginger cookie man and a deep red tea
      Let us dance a fun and enjoyable waltz together!
      This is the beginning of a never-ending Ripper★CARNIVAL

      Goodbye princess This is the finale for the lonely and solitary love

    8. Laito's song: Blood Sabbath

      “I can’t help it anymore”

      Ah, isn’t it too late for another excuse?
      At the last moment, it doesn’t matter even if you cry like a dog
      You’re not thinking of anything, are you?

      You should stop putting on that free performance of praying
      All of tomorrow’s plans have been erased
      A-PA-PA-PA


      Dissolve all common sense now, you beautiful lewd anemone
      The outcome is left to Friday
      Come on, Let’s Party!!

      I don’t hate bad girls (Ah, Ah)
      I don’t hate good girls either (Ah, Ah)
      but the ones I love the most,
      are the so-called worthless
      girls that will come and beg me to request something

      “That’s you, isn’t it?”

      (Bitch x Bitch!!!)
      Dance in the pot of melting blood
      (Bitch × Bitch × Bitch × Bitch × Bitch!!!)
      A chaotic secret meeting of the sabbath, that bursts your head open!
      (Bitch × Bitch × Bitch × Bitch × Bitch!!!)

      Sipping the extremely sweet blood that is like syrup
      A flash of lightning throws you into confusion
      An ominous bird laughs loudly and dies
      A narrow field of vision; what the compelling eyes wish for is

      “Love = Love me = Love me = Love me = Love me = Love me”

      Soon, the image will quit being a delusion
      Even if you cry CanCan at the scene of the fire
      Nobody loves it, right?

      Pretending to know,
      a face that begins to turn a pale blue,
      show it to me
      Selfishly worrying about small things,
      the trembling mind
      is completely empty

      I will destroy the future of tomorrow
      A half suspicious suggestion for a principal offensive meeting
      Will you go all out with a Rodeogirl Play?
      That’s right, Let’s Grind!!!

      I don’t like an assaulting girl (Ah, Ah)
      I don’t like a receiving girl either (Ah, Ah)
      however, the ones I love the most,
      are the girls that show me
      the exceedingly slutty facial expressions

      “So, you want me to forgive you?”
      (Bitch x Bitch!!!)
      Suffer the mistake of the desired blood
      (Bitch × Bitch × Bitch × Bitch × Bitch!!!)
      Your dignity and morals have broken down into pieces,
      throw away your body!
      (Bitch × Bitch × Bitch × Bitch × Bitch!!!)

      Digging and going beyond the loose manhole
      The sense of fear is out of order and confuses it with
      an enchanted glistening affection

      The demise (end) approaches with a crawl
      The reason the clinging eyes appeal to me is

      “You don’t matter = anymore = listen up = I will do whatever I like = to you”

      “OK.. fufufu...... haha... hahahaha”
      “I want you to forget anything and everything”
      “That’s right, you think so too right?”
      “You’re mine, I can do whatever I desire until the point that I want”
      “I can’t control my nerves any longer”
      “Fufufu... so... so I will cover everything”
      “No, no, It’s not like that, this isn’t love”
      “But of course, that’s alright”
      “To about what extent to line up and undress... I told you”
      “Come on, let’s enjoy ourselves more and more!”

      (Bitch x Bitch!!!)
      Dance in the pot of melting blood
      (Bitch × Bitch × Bitch × Bitch × Bitch!!!)
      A chaotic secret meeting of the sabbath, that bursts your head open!

      (Bitch × Bitch × Bitch × Bitch!!!)
      Suffer the mistake of the desired blood
      (Bitch × Bitch × Bitch × Bitch × Bitch!!!)
      Your dignity and morals have broken down into pieces,
      throw away your body!
      (Bitch × Bitch × Bitch × Bitch × Bitch × Bitch × Bitch × Bitch!!!)

      Sipping the extremely sweet blood that is like syrup
      A flash of lightning throws you into confusion
      An ominous bird laughs loudly and dies
      A narrow field of vision, what the compelling eyes wish for is

      “Love = Love me = Love me = Love me = Love me”

      “Bitch-chan, are you already broken?
      ......there is still more to come, I can’t go without some more bloodsucking, right....?”

    9. Shu's song: "Farewell Song"

      At this slope by the sea’s end
      All by myself, I doze off while holding my knees in my arms
      So, the daydream of the moon was painful to me
      I was unintentionally ran over and crushed with a terrible warped imbalance

      The reason we exist, is to grow up and mature,
      but, nevertheless there is something that’s missing, and that is innocence

      I’m sorry,
      I left behind nothing but terribly unclear words, didn’t I?

      “......Goodbye”

      Lost, I started crying like the light rain
      Gently, the world’s door closes

      I reach out and touched the wailing thing, it felt pleasant
      Stabbing my chest many times*

      Come on, disappear...
      Disappear...Disappear....

      Even though your voice is lost, I remember you
      If I wish to the wind, will my feelings reach you?
      You drowned, in the red river
      If only your breath could be brought back,
      close your eyes
      the kiss from both of our sweet lips,
      a rusty aroma, fills the area

      “......I won’t be separated from you anymore”

      Countless times, the fleeting day that was blurry
      becomes distant, I named the memories for you
      I wonder why, only tears overflow
      I will dedicate it to you, this Farewell Song

      Come on, disappear...
      Disappear...Disappear...

      “If for example I thought about these things,
      like if this blood existed in an unbinding world
      something like that,
      but the times that I have you by my side
      I forget everything, it’s true”

      “......I loved you”

      Lost, I started crying like the light rain
      Gently, the world’s door closes
      I reach out and touched the wailing thing, it felt pleasant
      Stabbing my chest many times*

      Countless times, the fleeting day that was blurry
      becomes distant, I named the memories for you

      I wonder why, only tears overflow
      I will dedicate it to you, this Farewell Song

      Come on, disappear...
      Disappear...Disappear....

    11. I was pleasantly surprised to find the images weren't as disturbing as I thought they would be

      Delete
    12. Just because I picked the vanilla ones for you. :P

      Yui's a hardcore M, though, in some routes it becomes obvious when she's not pressured or anything. Like one time in Shu's route he grabs a knife press it without cutting her and stops, telling her to cut herself to feed him or leave him be (she pesters him a LOT and he finds her incredibly annoying). And Yui willing does it, strips and cuts herself and secretly likes it. Of course there are other routes that this comes forced because you know the guy would force her or chase her if she doesn't do it, whereas Shu would just come back to sleep and was waiting for her to get scared and leave him be.

      Delete
    13. And I thank you for the vanilla
      Now Yui disturbs me too, but..in a different aspect :/

      Delete
    14. Eehh there are people who are masochists, it's completely all right if it's consensual because it's their choice, you know. My main issue is that her M was forced in some routes which did feel uncomfortable, I think Shu's route handled it well because his apathetic treatment (brushing her off and trying to avoid her when he could while she kept looking for him) worked to build up an organic acceptance, waking his S side which allowed him to appreciate life again. Life is pain, that's a saying of common sense and philosophy (that suffering is part of life), by watching her pained expression which she wanted and brought her pleasure, he came more interested in life again (because she wanted it, otherwise he wasn't interested). Once he found a motivation to live, he fell in love and turned very vanilla. Shu was scared of pain, on himself and other people, he wanted to be dead inside because of what happened to Edgar. That numbness ended first with that shared twisted pleasure which turns into affection, tenderness and love. I think I said it in other post, Subaru and Shu are the only ones who never try to kill her or kill her in the routes.

      Delete
    15. Yep, you did. I guess it is OK when it's not forced but...I don't know, masochism just generally freaks me out.

    16. At least, do a certain degree. Like what you said about Yui cutting herself, that disturbed me...quite a bit

  3. Why do so many people hate this episode!? Yeah Raito was sucking her blood, but hey, atleast he wasn't yelling at her and calling her names (other than Little Bitch.) He was actually being calm about it. And I know SOMEBODY must agree with me when I say, admit it: That was pretty sexy.Plus ,I'm pretty sure she liked it since he was being sexual about it.. And even the music put the scenario in a romantic mood.

    But I still agree with everyone else as to the fact that he pretty much raped her at the end of the episode..
    Ohhh Raito you horny mofo..<3
