On May 1, 1945 in Berlin, as the Red Army raises the Soviet flag over the Reichskanzlei, a group of Nazi officers conduct a ritual. For them, the slaughter in the city is nothing but the perfect ritual sacrifice in order to bring back the Order of the 13 Lances, a group of supermen whose coming would bring the world's destruction. Years later, no one knows if this group of officers succeeded, or whether they lived or died. Few know of their existence, and even those who knew began to pass away as the decades passed.

Now in December in the present day in Suwahara City, Ren Fujii spends his days at the hospital. It has been two months since the incident that brought him to the hospital: a fight with his friend Shirou Yusa where they almost tried to kill each other. He tries to value what he has left to him, but every night he sees the same dream: a guillotine, murderers who hunt people, and the black clothed knights who pursue the murderers. He is desperate to return to his normal, everyday life, but even now he hears Shirou's words: "Everyone who remains in this city eventually loses their minds."

[A Confusing and Frustrating Mess]

If I had to describe Dies Irae, it’s this: confusing and frustrating. Almost every episode left me saying, “what the fuck is going on” or “what is happening”. But, in most cases, I just sit there looking confused and dazed as I try to piece together the events that happened this episode with the previous ones. After awhile, I sort of understand what is happening, but not without a few lingering questions. Questions that I hoped would be answered in the next episode, except they weren’t, leaving me even more confused and frustrated.

Dies Irae:

After watching the last episode i can safely say that i liked Dies Irae very much.
There are two reasons that i continued watching it and they are: Reinhard and Mercurius. For me they made the Anime more interesting. I was dissapointed of the screentime that Reinhard had. i would have liked if they showed him more but oh well..

What i liked about Reinhard: He is OP, badass, smart and has a God complex: He loves everything and everyone. Id really like if they do a episode like EP0.

Mercurius: he is a mysterious man who is very strong and his way of dealing with things read more

This show is a disaster. This isn't something I say lightly. On a basic level Dies Irae is a complete and utter failure on almost every possible level. And knowing that (at the time of this review) there are still web exclusive episodes left is a harrowing thought.

I have not read the visual novel, in fact I was dared to watch this show, having not read it. As somebody who hasn't read the VN Dies Irae is baffling. Characters teleport around, change powers and appearances, and have momentary appearances in the show for seconds before randomly becoming important later. Of course, this is because much read more

I can get why people have a problem with this show. The pace is quite uneven, the story isn´t that coherent, much is not explained, and the clear haram vibe can be a turn off. I haven´t read/played the popular visual novel that the anime adaption is built on, so I can´t say if it´s a good adaption or not. However, I actually quite liked the show, its just demand that you are focused on the bits and pieces of information you get, and that you puzzle them together yourself. But before we dig into the actual review, some background information can be good.
