Vanitas no Carte (The Case Study of Vanitas)



Manga Vanitas no Carte (The Case Study of Vanitas) is getting an anime adaptation. Coming for this year for Summer 2021. Studio will be Bones.

Plot

Quote:
There once lived a vampire known as Vanitas, hated by his own kind for being born under a blue full moon, as most arise on the night of a crimson one. Afraid and alone, he created the "Book of Vanitas," a cursed grimoire that would one day take his vengeance on all vampires; this is how the story goes at least.

Vanitas no Carte follows No, a young man travelling aboard an airship in 19th century Paris with one goal in mind: to find the Book of Vanitas. A sudden vampire attack leads him to meet the enigmatic Vanitas, a doctor who specializes in vampires and, much to No's surprise, a completely ordinary human. The mysterious doctor has inherited both the name and the infamous text from the Vanitas of legend, using the grimoire to heal his patients. But behind his kind demeanor lies something a bit more sinister...

I was so excited to hear this news, but I would have preferred a proper adaptation of Pandora Hearts before this. Vanitas doesn't seem to be anywhere near finished, and I'd hate to have another one-and-done season that barely brushes the surface of the series. Depending on how many episodes this is, it's going to be awkward to adapt. I'm worried they'll compress the hell out of the arcs to either try to fit the first three arcs into one cour or the first four arcs into two cours, especially since Mochizuki's series are pretty dependent on the details. It would be great if Bones gave this the same treatment as Brotherhood or Boku no Hero, but I'm going to keep my expectations low in case it turns out to be lower quality.

There's also something off about the character designs. Vanitas and No don't look quite right...

Edit: Here's the official PV. Not bad. We'll see what the actual soundtrack is like, but I was expecting something with a bit of Parisian influence, considering the setting.

Funimation has the first episode up. Saw it on TV earlier and...

This was kind of a thriling start, kind of a strange one for the first episode in some ways but they introduced quite a colorful cast. The vampire themes were pretty evident as a girl went into their instincts and attacked one of the guys.

Vanitas is probably the most badass of the main cast introduced so far imo. Impressive chereography and music/soundtrack used for this episode so far. Honestly, I'm quite impressed by the first episode.

Anime version seems to have upgraded some backdrops.

In the manga version, Noe and Vanitas crash into some nondescript church; in the anime they crash into Sainte-Chapelle.

Ah, so that's why they were promoting this so much. It's complete fujobait, which means it will be highly successful. It has my attention because it's set in France (meaning I can read all the text!), has amazing production values, and the premise is interesting. One thing I didn't like was the "hook" at the end of the episode, it's a poor narrative trick to tell us the main character is going to die at the hand of the deuteragonist to create mystery, since it's obvious he won't actually die for good. Jujutsu Kaisen used it not that long ago, and it was pretty poor then.

I thought this might be Shoujo, since there was a girl, but it looks like the girl is just an episodic character and the main characters are just two guys... so actually this is BL? I can do Shoujo. But BL... Nah.

This is from the same author as Pandora Hearts... I realize it was many years ago, but did none of y'all read/watch Pandora Hearts? That was arguably fujobait as well, despite a handful of female main characters, like Alice. But the designs and closeness of Oz and Gilbert in Pandora Hearts... could've easily been mistaken for BL. So I'm not surprised it might be similar here too.

It's a shounen, like Pandora Hearts was. But it's a demographic-bending shounen, like PH and Kuroshitsuji. They have elements of shoujo, josei, even seinen. Fans in general are way too fixated on demographic labels.

One common factor that Pandora, Black Butler and Vanitas have is they are/were all serialized in Square Enix-owned magazines.
SE seems to have quite the preference for being demographic-bending.

The hook was also present in the source manga, so it'll depend on how Mochizuki Jun executes this in the future.

Indeed they do, much to their benefit IMO. They consistently publish some of the most interesting series around (especially those in the Gangan imprints).

Holy crap, that OP is so misleading. It couldn't be farther from the tone of the series. At least there aren't any spoilers. I'm not sold on this adaptation. Bones is trying to push the fujoshi bait and edginess way too hard, and it feels cheap to me at the moment, especially that ED. There was literally one page in the manga's first chapter where Noe expressed anything more than befuddlement towards Vanitas. I can't go into detail due to spoilers, but it's going to be a bit painful to watch if the characters' depths are marginalized to emphasize fanservice instead.

Also, something seemed off from the beginning. I had to pause a few minutes in to check my copy of the manga to make sure I wasn't remembering things incorrectly. Lo and behold, Bones left out the first page of the chapter (which is pretty damn important in providing context for why the Amelia's ailment is so serious when she falls victim to it) and rearranged parts of it.

This is Mochizuki we're talking about, so it's just as likely to be a red herring as it is to happen. Comparing to JJK is more apples to oranges, since JJK isn't a mystery series and we already know why he's been sentenced to death. Here we have no clue of the circumstances or any other info except the claim of an unreliable narrator. I trust Mochizuki as far as I can throw her after Pandora Hearts.

Pandora Hearts was watchable, yeah. Enjoyed it, even.
Except this time, there is no Alice, so... meh.

I've never read nor watched Pandora Hearts, so I can't really share your faith in the author. I'll just have to take you guys at your words.

If you ever decide to get into it, I recommend the manga. The anime barely brushed the surface of what it's about and had an original ending.

I don't know. I heard it got more and more fujoshi-bait as the series went on, so it may be best to just watch the anime and enjoy Alice.
And that other Ojou-sama girl. And maybe the childhood friend girl.

There's more to a series than the number of female characters present. By your standards, series like Hunter x Hunter and Vinland Saga must be nothing more than fujoshi bait. IMO, the PH anime was average at best compared to the manga, the reason being all the characters, including Alice, were painfully stereotypical up to the point it covered. The only saving grace was the soundtrack, but you do you.

It's been a while since I've watched either, but I'm pretty sure neither of those anime featured bishounens as the main characters. Both were fairly rough(?)-looking brats. I don't think I said any series without females in the main cast are fujoshi-bait, but...
Also, I definitely did not say Pandora Hearts was good.
I can see from the top that you are a fan of this series, but don't get so triggered that you aren't even reading what I said properly.

I think I'm reading the implication properly enough. But like I said earlier, you do you.


Edit: Also, don't insult Thorkell. He is positively dashing. Thorkell x Sweyn OTP.
