Description

May 1, 1945 ― Germany. On the eve of Berlin's collapse, a group of men and women carried out a certain ritual. To them, suffering defeat in the war meant nothing. If anything, the countless lives lost in the battle served as a catalyst to their sacrificial ceremony. Whether or not their attempt bore fruit ― not a soul knows. Following the war, they faded from sight, mind, and eventually into the realm of myth.


61 years later ― Japan, 2006.
Ren Fujii, a young man attending high school in Suwahara City, finds his friendship with his old buddy Shirou Yusa shatter to pieces following a certain incident, ending in a vicious fight that sees Ren hospitalized for two months.
The season shifts from autumn to winter ― to the dawning weeks of December, with Christmas on the horizon. Having lost his best friend, Ren leaves the hospital with the intention to rebuild his new life without Shirou.
But even that plan soon falls apart. Irrationality that defies the realm of common sense begins to assault and devour the city. Abnormalities soon seek to destroy everything Ren holds dear before his eyes with overwhelming violence.
He must change, even if it means crossing the boundary between the ordinary and the extraordinary. His desires are hardly anything grand. All he wants is to return to those days of old. Back to those days filled with simple, everyday joy.
The battle with the Longinus Dreizehn Orden. A continuation of that war full of madness, carnage, and maledictions. What future awaits Ren at the end of his road...?

Description

A lone wolf lacking in sociality. He may appear rather mature for his age, but is fast to lose his cool when complimented over his effeminate features - a trait that became somewhat of a complex for him. While normally agreeable with others, he draws a clear line between himself and the rest of his schoolmates, with the exception of a few close friends.

Unfortunately, about two months prior, a brutal fight inexplicably broke out between him and Shirou Yusa - his best friend - that left both of them hospitalized, placing Ren's already fickle reputation at school in complete jeopardy.

"If you could just get back whatever you've lost right away, wouldn't that make it worthless to begin with?"

Description

The head of the Kendo Club. Unyielding and masculine, she and Ren share a rather masochistic relationship. Unlike the infamous Ren, Kasumi is cheerful and sociable, her fame further amplified by her national-level fencing skills. She has a generally rough personality, but when it comes to Ren, she's prone to worrying and being fussy. She has a tendency to try and act the older sister from time to time, but she neither looks, nor feels the part.

"You always make that face when you're hiding something from me."

Voiced byHinami Fuuka

Description

Ren's upperclassman. Just as popular as Kasumi. But while Kasumi's popularity can be categorized as more or less conventional, Rea is idolized by those of more peculiar tastes, as - just like Ren - she normally tends to keep her distance from those around her.

She exudes an aura of aloofness, her well-ordered features of mixed German and Japanese blood rarely betraying emotion. However, despite that initial impression, she is hardly the type to be cold to others. An "eccentric weirdo" might be a more apt way to describe her, all things considered. Incidentally, her home is also a church.

"Don't you think God can be more than a little cruel sometimes? I'll make sure to throw Him a sucker punch for you next time I see Him."

Description

A mysterious girl who appears in Ren's dreams. She is clearly not Japanese, but her background and true name are unknown. For all we know, she might be just a figment of the young man's imagination. A maiden of the twilight, she sings a loathed refrain with a pure, angelic smile. Could that scar across her neck have been left by a guillotine?

Description

An ominous magician and alchemist who created Ewigkeit and established the Obsidian Round Table. He was the one responsible for turning the LDO from a clique of elite army officers merely dabbling in the occult into a den of genuine demons. Not only is Mercurius the one sworn friend of the Table's leader, he also stands as the only being capable of matching his sublime prowess.

Although his position could be considered that of a mentor and a father, the other LDO members - with the exception of their master - shun him as a hateful taboo. His whereabouts have remained a mystery for the past six decades.

Description

The leader of the Longinus Dreizehn Orden. Originally a high-ranking official in Germany, regarded as highly dangerous due to his seemingly boundless talent in all fields. Later, he bowed out of the public eye through the guise of a staged assassination, and formed the Obsidian Round Table alongside Mercurius.

Their subordinate members acted behind the scenes of WW2 and kept on destroying friend and foe alike. His acts of destruction reached their climax during the fall of Berlin. However, he and his three direct subordinates disappeared shortly afterwards, leaving their current whereabouts a mystery.

Description

The descendant of a bloodline that allied with the Obsidian Round Table during World War II. She joined the Table to fill the spot left by a member who died eleven years prior. Furthermore, as her age - contrary to the other members - does actually match her appearance, she is too young to have met the five highest-ranking members of the Table.

Description

An early member of the Deutsches Ahnenerbe - Nazi Germany's institute of archaeological and occult research - and a genuine witch who had stepped into the realm of sorcery even before joining the LDO. Her youthful appearance shelters one of the most ancient souls to have sworn loyalty to the Obsidian Round Table.

Despite being cunning and crafty at her core, she is playful and flirtatious on the outside, making her a very dangerous individual to associate with. She also has a fondness for torture and is known to be extremely moody. Though essentially not a fighter, her cruelty rivals even Wilhelm's.

Description

A man with a long criminal record who served as a First Lieutenant for the infamous 36th Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS. An albino, he shuns all light, especially that of the sun. In return, all of his senses magnify in the darkness, almost as if he was a vampire. Having embraced that nature of his as part of his identity. Wilhelm's designation and fondness for vampiric characteristics is no coincidence.

Description

Ren's best friend since childhood. He is a genius skilled in all sorts of fields, but as a result, he finds life boring. As a constant thrill-seeker, he acts recklessly and even incited a brutal fight with Ren, ultimately breaking off their friendship. As a result, he vanished from school and has not been heard from since.
