After a catastrophic epidemic kills every adult on earth, vampires arise from the shadows to enslave the remaining human population. Yuichiro escapes from captivity and joins the Japanese Imperial Demon Army. But before he’s allowed to fight vampires, he has to complete his first, terrifying mission–make new friends with his fellow aspiring monster slayers!

Yuichiro and his friends are kept as vampire fodder in a creepy institution masquerading as an orphanage. One day, Yuichiro’s dreams of fighting back are realized when the orphans stage a daring escape. But things go horribly wrong, and his dream is kept alive at a cruel price.
Takaya Kagami is a prolific light novelist whose works include the action and fantasy series A Dark Rabbit Has Seven Lives, which spawned a manga and anime series, as well as The Legend of Legendary Heroes, which has also been adapted into manga, anime and a video game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just like the anime... BUT BETTER The anime is my favourite of all time and to add to that the manga captures the essence that is the anime while adding other mysterious/important elements that brings the whole story together as a whole. The first volume captures you and drags you into the rest of the series. This book is truly outstanding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice Seraph of the End isn't the most original manga ever, but it's still interesting and really well done. The art is some of the most beautiful I've seen in any manga.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breathtaking! This arguably happens in most anime adaptions, though I must say that the manga offers so much more detail and minor interactions than what is portrayed in the anime. (It can't be helped, though I really do love both the anime, manga, and light novel! ♥) I enjoyed reading the manga very much, and after reading Catastrophe at Sixteen, everything makes a lot more sense reading the second time through, with the information from the prequel in my arsenal. Naturally, if you're a fan of the manga, I'd definitely recommend checking out the light novel if you haven't yet, too! All hail Seraph of the End, and bless this amazing series packed with vampires, demons, and humans! #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Apocalypse, Vampires, and Demons This series has amazing artwork, but is it just pretty pictures? No! Chapter 1 was done amazingly well for a first chapter. Even though the first few chapters of every book are supposed to cover the basics like character introductions, it was never boring at all. I'm terrible with names but these characters made a great impression on me, so I got their names right on the first try! Overall, the characters are each unique and interesting, some certainly have many secrets. Each character has a reason and story for being who they are and how their personalities got to where they are. You'll find out in later volumes. Future developments make the story even better, if you hate some characters for being cocky or for being bent on revenge, then I'll say this now. Don't. Give. Up. Character developments are natural. Naruto did not always stay an idiotic brat, Tsuna went from wimp to badass, and these characters also change throughout the story because of friendship, connections, bonds, and things they realize they gain. Don't worry, it's not like how Mashima Hiro, creator of Fairy Tail, blasted through every tough situation with "nakama power". The author and illustrator worked to give in depth details on the situation and setting. The world drawn is very detailed, you really do feel that the world did end. The character designs are beautiful and the battle scenes drawn are intense. The weapons are aren't left out either, they are all unique and the designs are done well. For instance, a scythe looks so try-hard compared to in Soul Eater and I feel that the designs for the katanas are better than Zoro's from One Piece. All in all, the story (future volumes included) is amazing, you understand everything very easily, the art is amazing, and I've not once regret buying the current four volumes. Bonus: each volume comes with a mini poster, fully colored!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be Prepared to Order Volume 2! Well, I just totally loved this! This is the first time I've read a shounen vampire manga. So far, I've only come across shoujo manga with vampire themes and so far they've proven too romantic for me. This has a very promising start and wow! was it a quick read. I was hooked from the opening pages. The orphans home setting pulled me in, then the virus apocalypse, and what a great set-up for a first volume. Not many characters are introduced, just the main ones (2 males and a female plus a male superior) and we get the whole backstory of this world, at least as far as the main characters know it. Due to the few characters to start with we get to know them quite well for a first volume and see some good action which promises good things to come; we've got demons, cursed power weapons and an awesome vampire battle scene. Since the people who survived the original virus were children under 13 we are dealing with some young people in these violent scenes, both as villains and victims,which makes them pretty creepy. The art is pretty, backgrounds quite detailed, some frames are a bit heavy on black ink, but not overdone. This could prove to be something quite special. Let's see where volume 2 takes us!
