Vanitas and Noé Archiviste head out to the town of Gévaudan in search of the "Beast," an enormous wolf-like creature that has slaughtered hundreds of people. Suspecting that the Beast is a curse-bearing vampire, Vanitas primarily aims to heal it using the powers of his grimoire.
Along the way, the two get separated and suddenly travel back to the past—to the exact moment the Beast is lurking in the woods. After a battle against the gigantic wolf and a vampire hunter, Vanitas decides to team up with Jeanne in order to find Noé. Despite being allies, Jeanne's goal is the opposite of Vanitas', as she was tasked to kill the Beast—suspecting it may be someone she used to know.
Meanwhile, a severely wounded Noé is picked up by the mysterious Chloé d'Apchier and her servant. Like Noé, Chloé is a vampire whose existence was erased from the public's knowledge. She has been a guardian for future generations and once tried to find a way to become human again. While Noé is grateful to Chloé for her hospitality, little does he know that she might be siding with forces far more dangerous than the Beast itself.
Vanitas No Karte Part 2: Continuation of a Dark Fantasy Masterpiece!
Part 2 of Vanitas No Karte continues where its predecessor left off, venturing deeper into the vivid world of dark fantasy, and the eternal conflict of vampires and humans. It’s a tale spun around our two central characters – Vanitas, a doctor with the ability to treat vampiric ailments, and Noé Archiviste, a vampire on a quest to unravel the secrets of the blue moon vampire.
The series continues to touch on themes of identity, prejudice, and the intricate dance between life and death. The story attempts to further unravel the mysteries surrounding the Book of Vanitas and the tragic tale that bears its name. With power struggles, experimentation, and friendships of questionable motive, it delicately observes its characters through sharp storytelling and powerful aesthetic appeal.
Review: Vanitas no Karte Part 2 – Diving Into a Spiral of Allure and Calamity
Vanitas no Karte Part 2, much like its predecessor, is a feast for the senses. Beautifully dark and gothic in its aesthetics with detailed character designs and carefully crafted set-pieces, this anime invites us wholeheartedly into its shadow-drenched world.
The bold lines and striking coloration in the animation continue to accentuate the melodramatic tone of the series. The fighting sequences are powerfully animated and drive the intense and suspenseful moments while the soft-hued scenes of character interaction focus on unfolding the complex emotional webs woven amongst characters.
The voice acting is uniformly excellent, bringing an additional layer of depth to already complex characters. This is further heightened by an atmospheric soundtrack that knows when to stir your emotions and when to let the quiet moments speak volumes.
Storytelling: Delving Deeper Into The Darkness
The storyline of Vanitas no Karte Part 2 wonderfully unravels the twisted skein of mysteries set up in the first season. It doesn’t shy away from the deep, difficult questions raised in its predecessor but rather addresses them head-on, creating character-rich scenarios and narrative twists that all contribute to a well-woven plot. It’s an incredibly bold and audacious move, as the anime does not revolve around a black-and-white tale of good versus evil but rather navigates through the grey areas with impressive dexterity.
Final Thoughts: Should You Rent, Buy, or Stream?
Vanitas no Karte Part 2 is an anime that uncovers more depth to its characters and builds upon the tantalizing mystery established in its first part while adding new layers to its already rich world. It’s a story that is as intriguing as it is heartbreaking. It continues to grip its viewers with ever tighter bonds, making it a must-see title
Therefore, for viewers who have immersed themselves in Part 1, I recommend you Buy if you are an avid collector of pieces that are both visually striking and compelling in narrative.
