SIRIUS THE JEAGER: REVENGE, TRIBES AND PURPOSE

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. I figured that this anime would be just a quick forgettable binge but it turned out to be actually really good exploring a lot of deep themes. This might be one of the most undiscovered and underappreciated anime of its year.

The story follows a Werewolf and a Jeager (people who hunt Vampires) , Yuily the last of the tribe of the Sirius. He seeks revenge for his village which had been taken down by Vampires. He is shown to be a skilled fighter though headstrong and stubborn he is also kind and loving. His group consists of memorable characters, the boss Professor Willard, the expert gunman Philip who has a love hate relationship with Yuily, a tall hulking man Fallon who is good natured and a handyman at times, Dorothea the right hand of Willard and weapons expert. Apart from these we have a military man by the name of Iba, a skilled katana wielding girl names Ryoko along with Vampire lord Yevgraf, Kershner and a lot of other vampires. The show is focused on Yuily and his quest to get revenge on the vampires while searching for the Ark of Sirius which is believed to be an object of immense wisdom and power.

The starting of the show is slow which leaves us confused as we are shown the different groups warring against each other. As the show progresses we see how everyone is connected with each other and how they are all ultimately connected to Yuily who is connected to the Ark of Sirius. Mysteries are abound and we are always left guessing as to who is who in the game of cat and mouse that is played. The show has some seriously amazing fights with gruesome scenes and though the frequency of the fights are less, the intensity and awesomeness is always there. The show is only 12 episodes so I understand that they didn’t put in useless fights and instead focused on the emotional parts and progressing the story.

I’m not a big fan of vampires and werewolves or that kind of supernatural beings because they’re always clichéd and are never anything unique. It’s like seeing the same thing over and over with just a few variations but the vampires and werewolves shown in this anime are impressive. One thing is established about them and that is followed all throughout the show without changing anything about them, the same goes for the werewolves who don’t even transform like the usual ones, instead they have something called the Blood of the Beast flowing within them as the source of their power. I personally liked the animations of their eyes changing colour and the way the fights are done.

Yuily grows as a character throughout the show, as we see his human side and his beast side both as he deals with different people throughout the show. Initially he says that he hates the, ‘stinking smell of the Vampire blood’ while at the end of the show he grows to understand that he must be good to all the races provided that they are willing to accept his help. While in fights and talking with vampires you would see his beast side, when he talks with humans Yuily is shown to be a much kinder and more empathetic person who loves flowers and knows quite a lot about them as he says just from a glance that, ‘the flowers are rotten at the roots though they might be looking like they are healthy from above.’ Yuily is a seeker of purpose as we see him first take on the purpose of killing vampires as a Jeager to fill the void in his life till he finally accepts himself as a Sirius and lives his life as one having found his purpose and knowing that despite being the last of his tribe he must continue on their pride and not be focused on revenge.

There isn’t much to talk about without spoiling the things that are in the show so I’ll be concluding now. The ending is really really satisfying so don’t worry about that. The shows talks about a lot of things like the difference between the bonds of family and the blonds of the blood, bond between brothers and how the immense power of legend like the Ark of Sirius is not something to be blindly believed in and rather must be used by someone with a higher purpose than selfish desire or it will consume them. A must watch for everyone, it isn’t that emotional but it still is emotional at times and the fights are great so there’s no reason not to.

Rap section:

Small village in the woods kept out of human sight,
They hunt by day like wolves and feast at night,
Hiding a secret power that others want despite,
Knowing that they live to protect it and fight.

The last of his tribe and Yuily is taking revenge,
No matter how hard they try they can’t drive a wedge,
Between him and his crew because he’s taken a pledge,
That his entire tribe and his family he will avenge.

Travelling the world following the scent of blood,
Don’t come in his way or he will make a flood,
Of the blood of his enemies as they fall with a thud,
No he isn’t cold he just wants to be loved.

Immense power and its safety that’s his purpose,
He may be a wolf but he is never nervous,
As he puts on tricks like he’s from the circus,
All to bring true power to the surface.

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.
