Mars Red Synopsis

The story takes place in 1923, and in a period when vampires exist. But now, the number of vampires has increased and the blood source called Ascra appeared in the world.

The Japanese government consequently creates "Code Zero", an army unit that will confront the rowdy vampires. And what is better to combat vampires than other vampires?

Created by Lt. Gen. Nakajima, the unit has been used to obtain war information, but has recently been reassigned to combat the vampire crisis. It will be the responsibility of the “Code Zero” unit and the S-class vampire, Deffrot, to investigate the strange increase in vampires before society collapses.
