The anime is one season split into two cours (quarters of the year) with 12 episodes each. Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign ran from April to June and then Seraph of the End: Battle in Nagoya from October to December.[3] The script for episodes 13-24 diverged from the manga and were written under Takaya Kagami's supervision.[4]

Years ago, a lethal virus spread across the world, wiping out most of humanity and allowing vampires to enslave the human race. From there, Yūichirō Hyakuya and his fellow orphans at the Hyakuya orphanage are treated as livestock, only being allowed to live for their blood. Desperate for freedom, Yūichirō and his best friend, Mikaela, hatch a plan to escape with their family to the outside world, hopefully free from vampires—only for their attempts to end in tragedy. As the only one to make it out alive, Yūichirō allies himself with the Japanese Imperial Demon Army — Japan's only hope against the vampires — in order to avenge his fallen friends.
