posted on by Karen Ressler
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.
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.
