Seraph of the End Manga (Japanese: 終わりのセラフ Hepburn: Owari no Serafu?) (also known as Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign) is a Japanese dark fantasy manga series written by Takaya Kagami and illustrated by Yamato Yamamoto with storyboards by Daisuke Furuya. It truly is released by Shueisha on Jump SQ and in English by Viz Media on Weekly Shonen Jump. The show is set in a world where a virus has ravaged the world-wide populace and leaving only kids under the age of thirteen unaffected; in its wake, vampires and other strange creatures appear from beneath the earth. A young man, Yuichiro “Yu” Hyakuya, sets out to kill the vampires after one kills nearly all the members from his orphanage.
In 2012 , a fatal virus appeared and pretty much wiped out all of mankind except for one group of people: children under 13. With mankind virtually ruined, vampires appeared and took over things, compelling all of the kids underground where they make them their food supply. Two of these kids are 11 year olds Yuichiro Hyakuya, a stupid hothead with dreams of defeating the vampires, and Mikaela, a much more level-headed youngster who thinks about survival and trying to remain low.
One day, Mikaela presents Yuichiro and the remaining children from their old orphanage a map he swiped from a mansion of one of the higher course vampires. The map reveals them an exit out of the underground realm and during the midst of the night, they make their getaway. Nevertheless, a dark and terrible twist hits them on the way out and just Yuichiro can escape. Once he makes it to the surface, he discovers that mankind hadn’t been completely wiped out and nearly everything he knew was a lie. He is then met by Guren Ichinose of the Japanese Imperial Devil Army, who offers him an opportunity to join them and exterminate the vampires once and for all.
