Owari no Seraph Synopsis
In 2012, the world apparently comes to an end at the hands of a “human-made” virus, ravaging the worldwide human population and leaving only children under the age of 13 untouched. It’s at this time that vampires arise from the recesses earth, likely followed by age-old horrors of the dark thought only to be fantasy. The vampires sweep the earth and claim it in a single violent stroke, subjugating the remnants of humanity and leading them beneath the surface to safety. This protection comes at the cost of donating blood to their captors.
At the age of 12, Yuuichirou and his friend and fellow orphan Mikaela plotted to escape along with the children in Hyakuya Orphanage. However, this led to their deaths and Mikaela sacrifices himself in order for Yuuichirou to escape and be saved by members of the Moon Demon Company, an extermination unit of the Japanese Imperial Demon Army. 4 years later, Yuuichirou dedicates his life to kill vampires and look for revenge against them for killing his family.
