This is definitely one of the shows for this season that I’ve been looking forward to watching. It’s set in a post-apocalyptic world where vampires have effectively have effectively taken over the world. The main character Yuuichirou Hyakuya is a child held in captivity by the vampires who escapes to join the remaining humans fighting against the vampires, fueled by his desire to avenge his family (sound familiar, anyone?).
This show definitely has quite a lot of potential. Post-apocalyptic stories are among my favorite types of stories and the soundtrack is done by Hiroyuki Sawano, who pretty much always has solid soundtracks. I’m not fully caught up with the manga (I stopped reading when the anime was announced), but what I’ve read so far has been interesting enough. I really do hope this show will be worth the hype and it’s pretty much guaranteed to be covered on this blog. Next week, we see how the humans are fairing in this new world of vampires. We’ll also get to see a bit more of Yuuichirou’s new personality after losing his family…I actually found him kinda insufferable in the manga, so don’t get too hopeful.
