"You can hear it, right? The sound... of the end of the world to come."
Kei Yosugara

A short manga by Toboso Yana, author of Black Butler. In a world where vampires and humans coexist, Aldred van Enviro, an energetic young vampire, attends the Millennium School as the sixth class squad leader. Al has so far been unable to manifest a Family Weapon, but otherwise his life is pretty normal... until a new student joins their group: the enigmatic and apparently human Kei Yosugata. Shortly after, fighting breaks out at the school, and Aldred finds himself in command of a very unusual weapon.


This manga provides examples of:

  • Human Subspecies: Vampires. Except they're actually more like Demonic Invaders.
  • Advertisement:
  • Improvised Weapon: Al's introduction. NAILBAT!
  • Killer Robot: Kagamimochi 26 stopped listening to Rengokuin when it "reached adolescence."
  • Living Weapon: Kei is the sheath of a vampire-killing lance.
  • Locked into Strangeness: As a child, Kei was dark haired. After becoming a Living Weapon, his hair turns white
  • Mood Whiplash: Surprisingly frequent for such a short series.
  • Near-Rape Experience: When Al loses control and almost bites Kodachi, it plays out a lot like an attempted rape.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: For one thing, they possess "Family Weapons." Except Al.
  • Paper Fan of Doom: Kodachi's family weapon is a fan.
  • Power Degeneration: Kei's body breaks down whenever he transforms. Changing just three times left him permanently bound to a wheelchair, and it was said doing it any more would have destroyed his human body completely and left him a lance forever, which is why Al chose to forsake that weapon and go back to his nail bat; it wasn't worth killing his friend.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Aldred, and it isn't a trait of all vampires.
  • Rule of Three: Kei transforms into the Holy Lance three times.
