With Attack on Titan (which you can also watch with a Hulu subscription) coming to an end after season 4, you may find you need another post-apocalyptic anime to binge-watch, and Seraph of the End is there to help you pick up the pieces.
First, a bit of backstory. The year is 2012, which sees the end of the world as we know it as a result of a man-made virus that wipes out most of humanity. The only segment of the population spared is anyone under 13 years of age, and as if one apocalypse wasn’t enough, the world also succumbs to a swarm of vampires who have been living under the earth for millennia. The monsters lead what’s left of mankind beneath the surface for what they claim is protection, but really, it’s to use them as livestock and to have a handy source of blood readily accessible. Despite these overwhelming odds, Yūichirō takes it upon himself to find a way to kill every last vampire and save what’s left of humanity.
The first episode is more than enough to get any anime lover hooked. The color palettes used are phenomenal, wonderfully contrasting the dark, gloomy atmosphere with bright pastels on the characters. While many recent vampire projects, like What We Do in the Shadows and Vampires vs. the Bronx, have infused comedy into the blood-sucking story lines, Seraph of the End goes all in on horror and action. You aren’t going to want to miss it.
