Original episode to focus on special mission before decisive battle at Nagoya

The official website for the Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign television anime series revealed more details on Saturday for the event anime that will screen at this year's Jump Special Anime Festa tour.

The anime will feature an original story with original characters, and will feature a special mission that takes place before the decisive battle in Nagoya. The anime will star a mysterious vampire named Shahal (pictured below left, played by Yūki Kaji) and a human girl named Riko (pictured below right, played by Rina Hidaka) whom he kidnaps. Shahal's true goal is unknown, and while he's kidnapped Riko, he refuses to drink her blood. Suddenly, he receives a visit from the vampire nobles Ferid and Crowley. Meanwhile, Guren tasks Shinoa's squad with rescuing Riko and returning her to her family.

The event will visit nine cities in Japan from November 3-15. In addition to the original anime, the festival will debut the Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Dark Side of Dimensions film trailer, and the Tokyo stop will also feature a talkshow with the cast of Haikyu!!. Gintama, Haikyu!!, World Trigger, and Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma will also have anime screenings at the event. Weekly Shonen Jump will distribute 3,000 pairs of tickets through a random drawing.

The original Seraph of the End 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.

Viz Media publishes the manga in North America. Funimation streamed the first 12 episodes of the Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign television anime as it aired in Japan from April to June.

The second part of the television anime, Seraph of the End: Battle in Nagoya, will premiere on October 10. In addition, a musical adaptation will premiere in Tokyo in February.
