A weekly special event launched on May 17 in Tokyo dubbed the "Vampire Attack." Inspired by the Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign anime, this event followed three cosplay models portraying characters from the show and traveling across the city. The event occurred every Sunday for three weeks, ending on May 31.

The event quickly gained popularity over Twitter using the hashtag "seraph_vampire" to keep track of the cosplayers. It even captured the attention of the official Twitter for the anime.

The trio were often rushed by an army of fans looking to take pictures of them to keep for themselves. They even captured the attention of passersby not familiar with the show, but rather curious as to the three cosplayers that were captivating so many people.

The cosplayers made stops at popular sites like TOHO CINEMAS in Shinjuku and the busy Takeshita Street shopping district in Harajuku.

Seraph of the End premiered in April and tells the story of a militant faction of humanity rising up against the vampires that dominated the planet after a mysterious virus kills off all of the adults in the world.
