Owari no Seraph (Seraph of the End) is one of the genres called “dark fantasy”, wrote by a light novel writer Kagami Tataya-San, who also wrote other works such as Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi.

(。-`ω-) Unlike common works classified as the dark fantasy works, this work includes quite a serious development. One day in the future, all the adults died out, being infected by a mysterious virus spreading all through the world. All the remained children are controlled and treated just like slaves by the “Vampires”, who were living in the underground, staying away from the sun. The entire remained humans try to find the means to protest against the vampires, organizing their own troop. Hyakuya Yuichiro and Hyakuya Mikaela, who used to be raised in their childhood, are separated from each other after the vampires attacked the orphanage where they lived. As time went by, Hyakuya Yuichiro, who joined the troop to retaliate against the vampires, happened to see his loved family member, Hyakuya Mikaela, who he thought was dead, being a part of the enemy’s troop.....

There are two versions in this work; manga and novel, and they respectively have each main character figures. The one in novel is Ichinose Guren and the one in manga (anime) is Hyakuya Yuichiro and Hyakuya Mikaela! In both versions, they try to find out what’s going on in the world in the past in novel and in the present in manga respectively.

(・∀・)So about this work! I just love how it is set! It’s so-called a “fantasy-type-battle-manga” and each aspect such as character’s personalities, weapons, the vampires (enemies), uniform’s designs... are well set up and reflected to anime. It’s just incredibly awesome!

Also, most of the characters that appear are children in this setting, and the way they overthrow the cruel reality look so courageous...! From the very first episode, we might think “Wow... it’s desperate...”, watching a scene where infected adults are dying. And, we might think “Wow... it’s desperate...” again and again, watching them confronting the vampires. Even though it’s quite dangerous for them to fight against the vampires who have 7 times as much a muscle strength as human, the main characters will never give up.

Especially, I was shocked (even beyond the desperation) at the scene of the battle field, where Hyakuya Yuichiro and Hyakuya Mikaela, who were living separately, meet again, like.. !!(●ω●;) “Whaaaaaaaaat?!!!! What kind of reunion in the world is it?!!!! I was so excited to see such a moving scene, thinking “Here we go! They will meet again! It must be an impressive scene!”... This is a dark fantasy, I guess... Please watch that historical and shocking reunion scene in the anime world with your own eyes!
