終わりのセラフ | Owari no Seraph
Wit Studio, Directed by Daisuke Tokudo, 2015
Are ya’ll motherfuckers gay or not?? I need the season 2 of this anime ASAP! There’s only twelve episodes of this exciting anime, which is much too short. I’m glad they’re making a second season.
The story is literally set in a post apocalyptic setting. Humans managed to create a virus, killing tons of people. Then vampires and demonic creatures emerged from the depths of the earth to claim it. The story follows Yūichirō Hyakuya, who shares his last name with many others, because vampires took him and his “family” from an orphanage. One day they decide to run away, but this goes horribly. He loses his best friend, named Mikaela Hyakuya, to the vampires. After escaping, Yuu is taken in by other humans who work for the Moon Demon Company and army. Yuu promises to kill all vampires, but the plot isn’t as simple as this. It’s not very complicated, but very interesting.
There are tons of biblical references to enjoy and if you’re not a fan of mythical allusions, there are political power struggles and manipulation tactics to interpret. The anime still has some funny and touching moments, despite the heavy themes. One thing I’d like to mention is that I’ve never skipped the opening for this anime. It’s a beautiful song named X.U. by Sawano Hiroyuki and Gemie. It’s a combination of a fast-paced and slow-paced song, which seems to mirror the action and underlying scheming.
