Question about the Arcueid Endings (Spoilers)

Ok so I just finished both the true and good endings for Arcueid and there is one thing bothering me. In the true ending Arcueid shows up after a week and says she can no longer resist the urge to feed. In the good ending she shows up after a month but says she needed only seven days to regain enough of her power to resist the desire for blood. This seems a little inconsistent to me. In both endings she has rested for at least seven days, which as stated by the good ending is all she needs to, but in one she leaves and the other she stays. Is there something I am missing or does this confuse other people as well?

She didn't focus on recovery in the True end.

So basically she was "smarter" in the Good end, because she knew she'd need to recover for days after that.

In True, she was probably still suprised to be alive.

I agree with Sabata somewhat.

She was supposed to have died, and the Thirst became too strong for her to endure. So, in True, she was 'killed' by Roa and disappeared. But as Shiki killed him, the energy he stole for Arcueid flowed back to her and thus she returned. However, in this state, she's largely fragile, and even though she rested a lot, since she already had the taste of blood, she's afraid that her urge for blood eventually hurts Shiki, so she goes back to her Castle to sleep. Of course, this in the True Ending.

On the Good, it's mainly for the Arc-lovers out there (like me) who can't support a sad ending. She got all the energy from Roa, rested a bit, and being a True Ancestor and all, resisted the Thirst to stay with everyone's favorite hero.

The End, enter KT & MB.

Hope that clears up something

both of you have reason, but i don´t think it´s just a consolation for the fans like michael nanaya said, you see if it´s one of the endings at least it must have some logic, in the true ending maybe she didn´t manage to recover all of her power she sleep for a week but, in the good ending she was missing for a month so she sleep a week and rested the other days beacause as she said she didn´t only recover her power sleeping, in the true probably she lost all hope to recover, that might be the logic answer. also sorry about my english it doesn´t seem to be very good.

Well, primarily they are two DIFFERENT endings, so they are, like shall we say, parallel realities.
Basically the final choice alters the time-line(even though the events have already happened, but you don't know that then do you?)and results in either the True or Good Ending.

The Good Ending was probably for suckers who got depressed seeing Arc die, and not being able to stay with Shiki.
I count myself among 'em

Not only that, but the Good End for Arc can be also used for Melty Blood if need be. Since she does tend to hang around town knowing Shiki at that point. That is until we get our Sacchin Routes in the remake of course.

Plus, Kagetsu Tohya is also continued from it, so it has a lot of relevance.

KT could've continued from Ciel Good End too.

Or from Satuski Normal, which also would make it a fit prequel to MB
