SERAPH OF THE END: MONSTERS, VAMPIRES AND BROMANCE

Hey guys what is up welcome back to my blog I’m so thankful that you guys took the time out of your day to read my blog post. Hope you all are safe from the COVID-19. The story is confusing, the plot is all mixed up but you can’t deny that the bromance in this anime is the thing that makes it stand apart from others.

The story is set in a world where a deadly virus has broken out and it kills everyone leaving only children below the age of 13 alive. Vampires ascend to the world and claim the world keeping the humans as blood reserves. They would provide the humans with food and shelter and in return they would need to give their blood for the Vampire’s drinking. The story follows 2 kids from an orphanage Yuichiro and his friend and fellow orphan Mikaela. They are being kept underground and are not allowed to go to the outside world believing that there is nothing there but death and destruction but as is the story our heroes want to go out. Sound a little familiar? Yeah that’s because it’s a lot like Attack on Titan but with a little more fun and light hearted scenes in between. There are dark moments in the anime but it doesn’t compare to Attack on Titan so if you’re looking for some light bloodshed, good fighting, a cast of good characters and a good bromance this is the anime for you. It’s vampires so there is obviously a lot of bloodshed and apart from that our main characters also face a lot of demons which now roam the surface of the earth.

The story is more about Yuu and Mika (short for Yuichiro and Mikaela) finding each other and being reunited after one thought that the other was dead. It shows that how even after changing a lot Yuu accepts Mika as he is and doesn’t turn his back to him. Mika shows a lot of wit and planning from his childhood . He is willing to bow to others if it gets the job done and he’s ready to slice their heads off when the job is done too. Yuu on the other hand shows development becoming a bit of a contrast from his childhood self. He learns to take responsibility and wants to help others and not just himself. They are basically apart for most of the anime with Mika’s sole goal being to find Yuu. They finally reunite in a heart touching scene near the end of the anime.

Now let’s talk about the combat which is pretty good in my opinion. It uses swords and other weapons like bows and axes. They’re not normal weapons either, humanity uses weapons which have demons inside them and bond with the demons to control them and use the weapons. This is shown in Yuu’s relationship with the demon inside his sword Asuramaru. The demons bring out the greatest fear inside the people and manifest them as visions, if the wielder is able to be beat the visions and conquer his fear, a contract can be formed between the wielder and the demon and the weapon can then be used. Yuu sees a vision of Mika and though seeming defeated at first wins in the end showing his great determination and the desire for revenge. Though Yuu wants revenge on the vampires for his childhood he manages to control it but over the course of the anime slowly loses his control and then lets it consume him so that he can be more powerful. He is shown to desire nothing more than power because of his nasty childhood. The monsters and vampires make for great enemies and combat never gets boring.

The plot is solely driven by the bromance of Yuu and Mika and if you don’t want it then don’t watch this anime however if you are open to the idea then by all means enjoy. I personally think that it was pretty good and it’s not shown so much that it’s shoved down your throat but still it’s the sole reason both Yuu and Mika fight. The anime doesn’t give a good conclusion though leaving us on a cliffhanger and leaving many unanswered questions from the story which you need to read the manga to get answers of. Personally this is more of an anime that you watch when you’re just bored and need something to watch. Don’t expect a master piece and don’t ask too many questions about the story just sit back and relax. My opinion on this one is watch at your own risk because if you’re a curious person you’ll have a lot of manga to read to understand the story.

So that is it for this post guys hope you got some value from this.  Thank you guys for reading to the end hit me up on Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn with your thoughts and if you have any ideas which I should write about. Stay safe from the COVID-19. Thank you again and I’ll see you all next week.
