***POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT!!!!*****
Mikaela is clingy and outgoing, forcing Yuuichirou to accept him and the other orphans as family.
This doesn’t work out so well until later.
Shortly after, all hell breaks loose and people start dying all around them, choking on air and their own blood. Absolute mayhem occurs, but the only ones affected seem to be all humans over age 13.
Vampires then come out to collect all the children and put them in livestock camps all over Japan (but it is implied that this is a global crisis).
The children from the orphanage enact a plan to escape, resulting in many of their deaths and only one child actually escaping. Hyakuya Yuuichirou is found by a group of humans surviving on the outside as part of the Moon Demon Company in the Japanese Imperial Army. Colonel Ichinose Guren then takes Yuuichirou on as an apprentice, forcing him to go to school and make friends, ultimately learning how to work as part of a team.
Mika barely survives the attack and is “saved” by the vampire queen, who proceeds to turn him into one of the enemy against his will. He then finds out about the experiments his orphanage has been conducting on him and his fellow orphans even before the world went to hell.
Thus he has a new goal, to save Yuuichirou from the humans and their manipulation of him.
That’s as far as I will go for the plot…
The artwork is masterfully done in both the manga and anime in my opinion, and the casting of the anime characters was also pretty good. Some of the animation is rather dubious, like backgrounds and some random CGI, but not enough to turn me off or to not recommend the anime. Those instances are few and far between except backgrounds, because those continue throughout the anime, but attention is drawn away from it due to the action. GO WATCH IT!!!
The music is also great. I am pretty impressed overall with the anime and the manga is just awesome. It satisfied the insane craving I’ve had for a while.
I’ve also found a new OTP with Yuu-chan and Mika. All you fujoshi out there should check out the few really good fanfiction stories on them. Please add to this budding fandom!
