VIZ Media Announces the Release of the Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign Manga

VIZ Media has announced the print and digital launch of the Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign manga series on June 3, 2014.

The series, illustrated by Yamato Yamamoto with story by Takaya Kagami and storyboards by Daisuke Furuya, will be published under the Shonen Jump Advanced imprint, is rated “T+” for Older Teens, and will carry an MSRP of $9.99 U.S. / $12.99 CAN. The debut volume also features a fold-out full-color poster, as well as revealing author commentary. Future volumes of the continuing series are scheduled to be published domestically three times a year.

A digital version of Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign will also launch on June 3, 2014 for $6.99 (USD/CAN) on VIZManga.com and through the VIZ Manga app for the Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, and Android-powered smart phones. It will also be available through the NOOK, Kobo, Kindle, iBooks and Google Play stores.

After trumpets of the apocalypse proclaim the fall of humanity, vampires arise from the shadows to rule the earth. Yuichiro wants just one thing – to get revenge by killing each and every vampire. Yuichiro’s dream is near-impossible, given that vampires are seven times stronger than humans, and the only way to kill them is by mastering Cursed Gear, advanced demon-possessed weaponry. Not to mention that humanity’s most elite Vampire Extermination Unit, the Moon Demon Company, wants nothing to do with Yuichiro unless he can prove he’s willing to work in a team – which is the last thing he wants.

Hope Donovan, Editor, says, “Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign is a gripping story that depicts a stark future where a catastrophic epidemic has killed off every adult on Earth leaving behind a population of children that have been enslaved by murderous vampires. The title has thrilled North American fans in Weekly Shonen Jump and we’re very excited to release full volumes digitally and in print. We went all-out for this one, so don’t miss the debut of this new must-read series in June!”
