Question Blood+ Question

This is for those who have been watching the series on Adult Swim. If you haven't, and you have not seen the series stop reading now as this is a spoiler for you.


Shortly after Diva kills Riku, as the ship begins to explode and sink, several boxes fall on Riku's body. They seem to contain those red crystals that come from the bodies of dead choropterans. When we last see Riku's body, it is buried under these crystals, and it seems that his body has not totally decayed like other choropterans/chevaliers/schiff. (Note that the crystal from Riku's body is now in Kai's hands.) Do you attach any significance to all this? Do you think we've seen the last of Riku? I can imagine his body being revived by absorbing the crystals of the dead choropterans, but then again it probably wouldn't be the same Riku.

What do you think?

IF YOU HAVE SEEN THE REST OF THE SERIES AND KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT, PLEASE DO NOT RESPOND WITH SPOILERS!

Well, I can say this much, I've seen all 50 episodes. As for the other members well...don't expect a response from them! Not too many people around here have seen this series. In any case, if you go to the Blood+ forum here I'm sure you'll find the answer that you're looking for.

Riku is such an annoying character, I hope that's the end of him...

What I was wondering about was why Diva removed her clothes and then we see a statuesque Riku also sans clothes. What's up? Did she give him a good time as she killed him?

There is no Blood+ forum here. There is one for Blood: The Last Vampire, but that is a different story, a different Saya, and a different everything.

Let's just say that Riku did not die a virgin.

I guess he must not have satisfied Diva, or else she would not have killed him.

Sorry about that. What I meant was the Blood+ thread in the Blood: The Last Vampire forum.

Was Riku even "ready"? Seeing that he so frightened of seeing Diva, I doubt it would have operated correctly.

Though the implication is that she must have raped him somehow. I remember reading that Diva's main concern was the procreation of her species. I guess for some reason she thought Riku was a good person to be the fater of her next generation, though I don't know why she didn't choose one of her own Chevaliers for that duty.

And I'm positive Riku's dead--for various reasons--but lets just say that since we saw his body crack and then shatter into pieces, he's gone.

Diva said that Riku was "so giving." Take that to mean what you will. Riku was about 13-14, so I am sure he was "ready."

Although I see the scenario where Riku was so thrilled about having sex that he said he couldn't wait to tell Kai and everyone else. Diva, not wanting it to get around, kills him to keep him quiet.

I do hope we get to meet Riku, Jr.

Well...nevermind. I was going to post a spoiler, but it's best that you watch and find out.

Seen the first 21 episodes, read the spoiler and it makes me want to watch more since Riku is an annoying little twit.

You find Riku annoying Westlo? I actually thought that he was the most sensible out of this show! Too bad....
