Seraph of the End Vampire Reign Season 1 Complete Collection

Release date: 8/21/2018

If supernatural abilities, well-animated fight scenes, a heart-wrenching story, and plot twists are your thing, this is a series you should definitely pick up! It's not your typical vampire story either; while it has supernatural elements, the true tale lies within the unbreakable bond between friends. There are also incredibly awesome weapons that are thrown into the mix that make this show one to be remembered. This complete collection contains episodes 1-24 of the first season, and I highly recommend purchasing it.
