Owari no Seraph - Ichinose Glen, a 16 year old's Catastrophe [LIGHT NOVEL]

Since the light novel is focusing on a different perspective from the manga, this can be seen as an accompanying thread to the manga thread:

The story is by Kagami Takaya, author of Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu and Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi, and the art is by Yamamoto Yamato, illustrator of Kure-nai.

Note that the light novel is covering the story 8 years before the manga, and Ichinose Glen (一瀬グレン), the commander who appeared in chapter 2 of the manga at the age of 24, is the 15-year old protagonist in the light novel, which means the light novel is the prequel, and the manga is the sequel (with Hyakuya Yuuichiro as the protagonist) and both are written at the same time

Official Synopsis (as presented here):
Quote:
Those screeches are annoying. I'll crush them all!

"Hey Glen. We'll still be together even after becoming adults right......?"
It was the last spring before the world got destroyed, when the surface got controlled by the vampires.
The school that the 15-year old Ichinose Glen enrolled in was a sorcerer-nurturing school in Shibuya.
It was filled with elite girls from famous lineages in the sorcery world.
Even when he was full of aspirations, Glen, who was born of a lowly branch family of his clan, spent his days being ridiculed as trash.
However, in the midst of all that, appeared a girl whom he had made a promise to a long time ago, a classmate who called herself his fiancee.
In a world that was getting destroyed, the young man sought power, and so did the girl.
Frankly, I raised my eyebrows slightly when I read the synopsis. Well, I already noticed this a little when I read Itsuten. It seems like Kagami is slowly adding 'popular elements' (like a school filled with girls) to his story. Well, as long as he continues giving me another fangasm with this new dark fantasy of his, I'm fine with it.

Incidentally, I forgot about this release (well I was on vacation anyway) and haven't gotten it yet.

Maybe you can consider that, but that would be the Oni (Demon) that has taken over her. If you read the manga (the sequel), you would know the Oni in the Oni-equip is always looking for a gap in their hearts to take over their host.

Anyway:

Wah, to write about prequel and the sequel at the same time, Kagami must be one crazy author!

Just how many stories Kagami is currently working on..... Let see.
Owari no Seraph (LN).
Owari no Seraph (Manga) with the 8 year jump.
Dai Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu (LN).
Mokushiroku Arisu (LN).

Man, doing 4 series, sometime it make me wonder if Kagami Takaya is really just one person.
