Owari no Seraph Synopsis

In 2012, the world ended due to a man-made virus that devastated the world's population, leaving only children under the age of 13 intact. At this time, the vampires emerged from their eternal rest and decided to subjugate the remaining population of the earth and offer them "shelter" below the surface. But this "protection" comes at a price, which is "donating blood" to the kidnappers without anyone knowing that they are actually vampires.

At the age of twelve, Yuuichirou and his friend and orphan colleague Mikaela plan an escape from the Hyakuya orphanage with the other children. However, this resulted in her death and the sacrifice of Mikaela to ensure Yuuichirou's escape. He is rescued by members of the Moon Demon Squad, an extermination unit of the Imperial Japanese Demon Army. Four years later, Yuuichirou devotes his life to killing vampires and taking revenge on them for killing his family.
