Storyline

In 2012, the world allegedly comes to an end at the hands of a human-made virus, ravaging the global populace and leaving only children untouched. It is at this time that vampires emerge from the recesses of the earth, likely followed by age-old horrors of the dark thought only to be myth. 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 price of donating blood to their captors. At the age of twelve, Yuichiro and his friend and fellow orphan Mikaela plotted to escape along with the children in Hyakuya Orphanage. However, this resulted in their deaths and Mikaela sacrifices himself in order for Yuichiro to escape and be saved by members of the Moon Demon Company, an extermination unit of the Japanese Imperial Demon Army. Four years later, Yuichiro dedicates his life to destroy vampires and seek revenge against them for murdering his "family".

Much better than expected
11 March 2019 | by vaughanynvSee all my reviews

If traditional gothic vampires are your thing then Seraph is probably not for you. There is little in the animation that is dark and sinister and this probably owes to the bright colour palette and the relatively weak soundtrack. The show is a fantasy-style blood fest rather than a true horror and should be categorised as such in the mind before viewing. All of this said, despite it's lack of visual edginess, it is an anime that has strong characters with likeable personalities and a strong sense of family, loyalty to friends and duty at the core of an entertaining storyline. If I'm honest, I wasn't expecting a lot, so I was pleasantly surprised by how engaged I was in the storyline and I enjoyed the series in the same way as I enjoyed the film Underworld. Admittedly, what was supposed to be a twist was easily fathomed early on, but there are some books that aren't epics and are nevertheless page turner's. For me this was the anime equivalent.
