Seraph of the End episode 04

Okay, fine, I will admit that I could really use some action right about now. I am seeing too much of the same thing and it is getting a tad bit boring. At least we got to see how Mikaela became a vampire, I guess…

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 04 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_05.55_[2015.04.27_23.33.48]I must admit that it does make sense. His desire to keep his friends save and out of the hands of those vampires is what set him apart from other people. He was one of those rare ones that willingly sacrificed himself for others. Too bad that it ended up becoming his greatest flaw; he ended up fatally wounded and at the mercy of some vampire queen, whom decided to turn him into one of her kind against his will. Why? There are a number of possibilities, but I am guessing she either wanted an interesting toy or another servant/soldier to do her bidding. Why else, right?

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 04 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_15.11_[2015.04.27_23.34.04]This works, for now. Mikaela is working towards a goal; finding his long lost friend, Yuuichirou. And Yuuichirou is working towards a goal of his own; gaining power so that he can slay vampires and monsters. This works because the two of them are not really aware of each other’s situation as of yet. This will change soon though.

I am not even going to focus on Yuuichirou’s school nonsense right now. It is beginning to bore me. I’ll just end this post with a guess. I am guessing that Mikaela will either join forces with Yuuichirou to fight against the vampires or that the two of them will fight to the death and that Yuuichirou will be the one left standing at the end. I’m putting my money on door number one for the time being.

Seraph of the End episode 03

Okay, an interesting episode, but also a highly predictable twist. I just don’t understand why people reacted so surprised. I read two different topics about how public are shocked about this episode’s ending. Why? I could’ve told you that this would happen after I saw episode one.

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 03 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_07.13_[2015.04.19_23.46.15]I don’t like to start right on the twist. I like to review an episode as it goes. But hey, this is my blog and my will is law here. People are so damn surprised that Mikaela, Yuuichirou’s friend, is still alive. They are also surprised that he has been turned into a vampire. Fine, I will admit that I did not expect him to be a vampire, but I was completely certain that he was still alive. We never actually saw him die. We only really saw how Yuuichirou escaped. The rest was very vague. This made things very easy to predict. They focussed so much on Mikaela that there’s no way that they would kill him off right away.

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 03 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_22.00_[2015.04.19_23.46.39]Anyway, Yuuichirou is doing his best. He is still not worried about partnering up with someone and only cares about slaying vampires. The problem with that is that he’s lacking in many departments. He has no experience, knowledge or weapon to take on those vampires. Especially not one that’s equipped to fight against demon-wielding humans.

Also, Yuuichirou came into contact with a demon that takes on the form of an axe. I honestly don’t think that they match. Yuuichirou should not wield an axe. A scythe maybe, but definitely not an axe. He should just stick to blades. Seeing that kid swing a blade would be ridiculous. A scythe is big too, but at least those look kind of awesome.

Seraph of the End episode 02

I decided to give this a chance since it’s really speaking to me. It has a dark element but also a funny, light element. The main reason why I decided to write about this is because I was waiting for the second episode. I actually waited for it.

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 02 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_11.29_[2015.04.12_23.38.03]So things took a different turn when I suddenly see that same boy that survived the vampires’ mealtime in school. I mean, yes, I saw him in action and defeat that strange monster as though it was nothing whilst his colleagues were cowering in fear and waiting for backup, but I simply don’t understand that school part. Is it really to turn him into a team player? Because I agree with that kid; he doesn’t really need friends in a world that’s currently overrun by vampires and monsters, and where humanity has been reduced significantly. I’m just saying…

[Ohys-Raws] Owari no Seraph - 02 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_17.48_[2015.04.12_23.38.18]So yeah; it’s strange. The guy would be better of training or learning new skills than to learn about history, or how to multiply or spell. Power suddenly becomes a lot more important when your race has come very close to being exterminated. You’d want to enlist as many of those soldiers as possible to fight off the vampire and those monsters.

And the future? Well, I’m sure that Yuuichirou will be fine now that he’s made a friend. He achieved what was asked of him so now he can move on to training and missions, yes? I certainly don’t mind following his school life every now and then, seems funny, but I am more interested in the action and finding out where those vampires and monsters come from.

Seraph of the End

I’m pretty sure every anime fan has been hearing of Seraph of the End. The hype around this show was insane. Do I understand why? Meh. The first episode was a bit strange and weak in my opinion, but yes, it does look promising.

Seraph of the EndI suppose there’s nothing wrong with the artwork. It looks very, very good. The characters look nice, the surroundings are pretty cool and the level of detail is superb. I have really no complaints about the artwork whatsoever.

The story is what worries me a little. I mean, a virus breaks out any all humans older than thirteen suddenly die instantly and the world gets overrun by vampires. They did not explain that nearly enough and I cannot help but wonder what the hell is going on. The first episode simply didn’t really explain much.

I do recommend this to all action fans. It looks very promising. I am not going to give this a negative review because of a cryptic first episode even though it looks so promising. I am definitely going to be waiting for the second episode.

Plot Summary: After an unknown virus wiped out all adults on earth, vampires appeared and ruled over the surviving children, treating them like livestock. Yuichiro Hyakuya survived along with other orphans by giving their blood to vampires, until Yuichiro escaped four years ago. Now he is a member of the Moon Demon Company, a unit in the Japanese army dedicated to hunting down the vampires he blames for the death of his family.
