posted on by Karen Ressler
The official website for the Seraph of the End (Owari no Seraph) anime announced on Tuesday that Funimation will stream the series on its website beginning on April 4.
The original manga by novelist Takaya Kagami (The Legend of the Legendary Heroes, A Dark Rabbit Has Seven Lives), manga creator Daisuke Furuya, and manga artist Yamato Yamamoto takes place in a world where an unknown virus has killed the entire human population except for children. Those children were then enslaved by vampires. The manga centers on Yūichirō Hyakuya, a human who dreams of becoming strong enough to kill all vampires.
Hiroyuki Sawano (Aldnoah.Zero, Attack on Titan, Blue Exorcist, Mobile Suit Gundam UC, Sengoku Basara: Samurai Kings, The Seven Deadly Sins) is producing and co-composing the music with Takafumi Wada, Asami Tachibana, and Megumi Shiraishi. Sawano will also produce the opening and ending themes. The opening theme by SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]:Gemie will be titled "X.U." and the ending theme by SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]:Yosh will be titled "scaPEGoat." Both themes will ship on a CD on May 20.
Daisuke Tokudo is directing the series off of scripts by Hiroshi Seko. Satoshi Kadowaki is adapting the character designs. Wit Studio is animating the series.
The series will premiere on April 4 on Tokyo MX at 10:00 p.m. The anime will run in two split cours (quarters of the year) with 12 episodes each this year: from April to June and then from October to December.
