Vanitas no Carte is an exciting anime for this season. It is precisely what you are looking for as a complete package anime. The story is fresh; the characters can be funny, cool and scary at the same time. And most of all, it is Vampire.

The author of this beautiful anime is Jun Mochizuki. She is not that new since she already has few notable works from the past. She made Crimson-shell in 2005 with only 1 volume and made Pandora Hearts the following year. Although I haven't watched and read them, I already had set my eyes on Pandora Hearts a long time ago but couldn't find the perfect time to start it. And now that I began to realise how excellent Jun Mochizuki works are, especially Vanitas no Carte, maybe I'll start it soon.

Before we start with the list of why should you watch Vanitas no Carte, let's take a look first at its plot.

Vanitas no Carte was a vampire anime set in 19th century Paris combined with a steampunk theme. It is a story that started with a Vampire who is born on a Blue Moon instead of a Crimson Moon, which most vampires typically was. Living in discrimination, he hated his fellow vampires and created a book that could curse them. And the book was named "Book of Vanitas".

Years have passed, and it's the present time. On the airship, a vampire named Noé Archiviste met a human named Vanitas who possesses a book called Book of Vanitas. Ironically, he uses it to cure the curses from the vampires. What is the meaning of all of this? Why did a human possess a book made by a vampire and even uses it to cure a vampire which he cursed and hated? Noé decided to follow Vanitas to know more about the grimoire, and that's how all the fun started.

Why Should You Watch This Anime?

  • It is Vampire

Well, who doesn't love vampire fiction? Dracula, Helsing, Underwood and Twilight Saga have just proven how great this genre is. On the other hand, the vampire genre in anime is not going well. The only vampire anime I can recommend is Jojo Bizarre Adventure, Hellsing Ultimate, Monogatari Series, and Vanitas no Carte can be the new addition if it ended well. I can see people say it ended well, so I think it may be true.

  • It Knows How to Please the Fans

First, I will clear the big misunderstanding about this anime. It's not BL, Shounen-ai, Yaoi or anything you want to call it, but it's definitely not. But because the author is a woman, she knows how to spice things up. In fact, it's not just Shounen-ai, but there are times you can find Shoujo-ai. Well, there's nothing we can do with that since there will always be Yaoi worshippers in almost every shounen anime with more than one main character. Vanitas no Carte know how to give fanservice, and I don't mind them at all. I just love Vanitas and Jeanne ship. They're just cute and perfect.

  • Action Comedy at its Finest

If you want funny anime with awesome fights, then Vanitas no Carte is for you. The fighting scenes are pretty average, but the mind games of Vanitas is unexpected. I still don't know what his goal is but the way how he manipulates even the high-rank vampires is just mindblowing. And it's also funny in a way that both Vanitas and Noe is goofball, especially Vanitas. They can act seriously, but sometimes they can be stupid too. And it's way too funny.

  • Soundtrack

And finally, why not watch Vanitas no Carte for its soundtracks. I always look forward to its opening song, Sora to Utsuro. So far, this and the opening song of Idaten Deities is my favourite this season. And also, you can check its ending theme, Zero too. However, it's not as good as its opening, but worth checking. This is the kind of anime that you don't want to skip its beginning and ending song.

Vanitas no Carte is an anime of perfect balance. You can find anything you want in this anime, and it will not bore you to death. Just be prepared and don't get too attached to the character since it's not the "happy ending" type of anime. I highly recommend this one.
