Seraph of the End Volume 1 Review

“You humans live solely at the mercy of us vampires.”

Humans have caused an epidemic that kills every adult on earth, and vampires take advantage to emerge from the shadows and enslave what’s left of humanity.

Orphan Yuichiro and his friends are kept as little more than a food supply for the vampires, and he dreams of escape to the world above. But the cost of disobedience is high…

The core ideas and general world are interesting, but Vampire Reign fell into usual Shounen trappings very quickly after strong prologue. The”normal” school setting seems out of place and very forced, and it would have been more compelling to spend significantly more time in the Vampire world, which was intriguing and different.

There’s potential here, but the jury’s out so far. I have a few more volumes available, so we’ll see how it goes.
