Set in Tokyo, it's January 29, 2030. High-frequency resonance is observed in the vicinity of Tokyo, and the red fog rolls into the city. Those who hear the sound, humans and animals alike, pass out, losing consciousness. Everything shuts down in Tokyo, believing that the fog is carrying an unknown virus that causes an epidemic. However, six days later, after the incident, people wake up as if nothing happened. After that, Tokyo's sealed-off city sections gradually return to normal. However, since the high-frequency resonance, some "bizarre events" start to happen, and people find themselves being pulled deeper into more mysteries. Meanwhile, young people start to become aware of themselves and release their power hidden in their blood, discovering themselves as "vessel of wisdom blood." Together, being led by something unknown, they meet, communicate, and face the unavoidable circle of fate, sacrificing their own lives.

To understand why the card game got an adaptation into an anime, we need to understand the core series, which is only available in the Land of the Rising Sun, and no one else...(But who cares anyways)…

The story is Dance Of The Dragons-like confusing and hard to understand, but you just need this one exact point to understand read more

I've seen a lot of anime get panned in the past by people being overly critical or having high expectations, so I like to give even poorly rated anime a chance...this one was not one of those instances.

My biggest complaint after the often broken and incomprehensible story is the characters, namely I felt no attachment to any of them at all, they're bland, expressionless and a lot of the things they say or do don't make sense. The other part that was extremely off putting was nearly every character's hostility towards the MC from the very beginning, even one character who was supposed to be read more
