Seraph of the End is a manga that tells a dark story. Takaya Kagami wrote it. Yamato Yamamoto did the drawings, and Daisuke Furuya did the storyboards. It came out in Jump SQ and for English, Weekly Shonen Jump. Fans worldwide got excited to see it come to life as an anime series because it was so good! There are two seasons now, and people are waiting for Season 3 of Seraph of the End!
The first season of Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign came out on April 4th of 2015. It was 12 episodes long and got a good score. The second one, Seraph of the End: Battle in Nagoya, came out with 12 episodes when the first season ended. There are also two spins offs that are about a part of when these people were kids. The manga came from this anime and started on September 3rd 2012, and is still going now with 30 volumes so far!
A light novel series with manga and anime was created. It is about the prequel to manga and anime. 7 volumes were published from January 2013 to December 2016. A manga changing that series started dynamic on June 6th of 2017. Maybe we will even get an animation version of this prequel story! Many prequel light novels came from this manga series. Two Japanese video games also came out. But we are not come to talk about these things. We are here to talk about what is happening with Season 3 of Seraph of the End.
Seraph of the End: First two Seasons
This is a post-apocalyptic world where a virus kills everyone. But vampires come and want to protect the orphans. The story is about Yuuichirou and Mikaela, who live in an orphanage with other kids. If you are reading, then you probably know the story. I would say that if you haven’t read it yet and want to know what happens, I wouldn’t want to mess up it for you. There will be more occurrences coming out soon. The first episode is excellent and makes people want to keep reading.
The story is regarding a boy who wants to get his revenge. He grows stronger, and there is lots of friendship between the characters. The first season left us on a cliffhanger that the second season picked up from. Now we are at the end of Season 2, but where will Season 3 be?
Seraph of the End: Season 3?
The first two seasons of this show, the anime, were made by Wit Studio and licensed by Funimation. The episodes in the first 2 seasons came out a little too soon because there were not many episodes left in the manga. The person who wrote it, Takaya Kagami, was writing stories for episodes that weren’t even made yet. If we could wait a little longer for the first two seasons of the series to come out, maybe then there would be less time between each season. Studios have trouble continuing older anime, but now we are seeing an increase of older anime getting new seasons. This means that they can make money from anime and manga (book).
The third season of the anime has not been confirmed yet. They just released the anime to try and make more people buy the manga. The show’s ending left off at a cliffhanger, making me want to read the manga even more, but I still had to wait for it to get that far in the story. When you get so invest in these symbols and their stories, waiting is hard.
Seraph of the End: Source Material
The manga has 20 volumes. The sections come out monthly, and the latest chapter was 87. The anime only has 41 chapters, but that will double to 82 when it is done. This is like how we are at the last season of Season 2.1
We don’t know how many chapters there will be for the next season. Maybe they want to split it in two again and have Season 3 and 4, or they might want one big season with 24 episodes. The first season stops at Chapter 25, while the second season is all of the remaining 16 chapters.
Seraph of the End: Plot Detail?
You can read the graphic novel to see how the plot continues. If people like it, you should have another season. The second season tried to finish it off at a good issue, not showing all that the graphic novel did. The manga is a roller beer mat ride that never slows down. The humans in this show are just trying to survive. The war is happening, and vampires want the food supply. The main characters’ weapons have been made of demons, and they’ll explore them more in Season 3.
The last episode did change in the chapter that was released. It is not unusual for animation to deviate from its source material, however. How they will remain from this alter is a mystery. Read the manga starting at chapter 41 to notice it for oneself. The graphic novel is actually great, and I am always looking forward to every new chapter and hope it will be animated too.
Seraph of the End: characters
I will let you know about the main characters in Seraph of the End. This story is perfect because of them. Stronger vampires will appear, but who they are and how many there are depends on how much they adapt to it. These are the main characters:
