He dreams of killing vampires. He dreams of killing them all.

I'm putting all on my money on the notion that this will be the most popular anime airing in the spring season. Why do you ask? Well for one, Studio Wit - Most famous for bringing to life the worldwide phenom Attack on Titan and most recently Rolling Girls is putting out all the stops for this one, the staff is very reliable and experienced and we have the ever popular Hiroyuki Sawano on the soundtrack. Add that to the stunning visuals, this being a split cour series and the managka being very much involved on the series (It's going to have anime original content as well, but the creator supervised the scriptwriting so I think that it'll be okay), I think it's safe to say that we're gonna have another overhyped series on our hands lol.

Naturally LN and manga readers would also be thrilled for this series, but judging by what I've personally read so far and what others have told me, this series isn't groundbreaking at all, it's pretty generic and it has some uncanny similarities to Attack on Titan in some aspects, however, I heard that it gets less cliche'd and that the series itself takes off as it goes on....So far for me, the best thing about the series were the characters so I'm looking forward to seeing how this series plays out. (Also I hear that there is some yaoi-esque moments in this series lol Traps too I think xD). This series will make for some great cosplaying though because their outfits are fabulous if I must say

This series can be a hit or miss quite easily I think so I wouldn't get your hopes up much unless you're like me and don't mind generic series as long as there are some things that are worth sticking around for

I always mean to read it, but I can't get through the first few chapters, so I'm hoping that the anime will get me there.

The beginning is basically Shingeki but replace titans with Vampires. It was stale, but around chapter 10 it started to branch from the generic roots.

I have said this before, the Manga does not turn a 180° flip, but the SnK feeling starts to fade. Plus the characters are what kept my interest on these series.

So, if I couldn't get into the manga, and I hate SnK, is it even worth watching?

Depends of your tastes really.


Owari no seraph is a Manga using the End of the World thing of subplot, we have a protagonist who I like to call Mini Eren, essentially, an Eren. And we have a reverse Sasuke... Use your imagination with that one.

Those are the only complains I have with the Manga, fans of course love them because:

OMG HE SO ANGRY, GONNA KILL DEH VAMPIRES
OMG MICH I UNDERSTAND YOUR PAIN, PRAISE THE YAOI SHIP.

That aside, the characters are really great, the heroine is not your typical TSUNDERE, but a combination of kudere and the former. Guren on the other hand is that kind of character you wonder, why the fuck you are not the protagonist.

Now, I said this branchs from SnK, why? Because one, it didn't take 50ish chapters to make the plot not black and white, this is not HUMANS GOOD, DEH VAMPIRES EVUL. author has made it clear that both sides can be equally good to equally evil, for gods sake, he has hinted Humans are worse than vampires.

Now, should you watch it? If you dont mind the generic roots, and those 2 I mentioned, the Manga has potential to be a very good shounen, with the elements of combat, the characters and the plot. I have my hopes this turns to be a good successor of Soul Eater pre ohkubo (as the powers and demon weapons).

@Insane Soul I see, I see.

 

Well, that's more of a depiction of reality.  As Shunsui, and plenty of others, likes to say, "There's no good side in a war."  In order to fight vampires, I'm pretty sure that you'd have to commit plenty of atrocities of your own.

I don't want to spoil that much of the plot, but it isn't as simple.

Well, I like this Source. Does not mean I am a complete fanboy because there are flaws. But I can deal with it.

 

Plus did I mention the comedy moments are good?

The production values for this show should be a lot better than during SnK's run two years ago as WIT should have learned their lesson in that aspect. The fact that this anime will be split cour with the second half premiering in the Fall should be reassuring that animation quality will remain consistent. 

 

Can't wait to see the inevitable manga sales boost on Oricon also. I'm not expecting something huge like SnK did, but if it can get in the 800k-1 million mark in sales then it should be good.

I am not expecting the anime to be SnK tier (god no), but as Blink said, I want it to boost the attention on the Manga, both sales and overal western fanbase. And I am curious to see how the Anime turns out to be.

 

Mostly because OnS world and atmosphere is big and diverce, and judging by the PVs and artwork released a little ago, Wits will deliver.
