Synopsis

"Hey, Guren? Do you think... when we grow up, we can still be together like always?"

Just before the world fell to ruin because of mysterious virus that appeared on Earth which killed every infected human over the age of 13. Vampires conquered the surface—in that one last spring.

Ichinose Guren had entered a Sorcery Training School in Shibuya. This school was full of elites from famous families in the world of sorcerers. As he himself was of modest origin, Guren held a great ambition in his heart, even despite being labelled as trash. But among his classmates, a girl appeared who introduced herself by the name of the fiancée he had traded vows with a really long time ago... In that world slated for ruin, the boy sought power; and the girl sought power as well. A magic academy fantasy story begins!

This is technically a prequel to the Seraph of the End manga/anime. The story follows Guren and the trials and tribulations he must endure due to the Hiragi clan and how he seeks to overcome them.


The story really humanises Guren a lot more than what you see in the manga - where he barely shows any emotion - and overall made him not only more relatable, but a much better and in-depth character than Yu. You also get much more acquainted with his team that he slowly starts to form over the seven chapters and their various outlooks on the current situation they find read more

Keep in mind that I have given these novels a 10/10 because I am extremely biased (ONS is my main interest), so if I were your average reader, I would give these novels an 8/10.

Catastrophe at Sixteen is a prequel to the main story and shows Guren’s life in his freshman year of high school right before the catastrophe that ended the world (with flashbacks to his childhood). You watch him as he makes friends (who we know as the Guren squad), experiences love, heartbreak, grief, and the start of the loss of his humanity. These books give a lot of background to his friends, read more

This is a rock solid prequel to the Seraph of the End manga, in many ways it's better than the series it's a prequel to. It does a great job at developing the characters of Guren and his friends, as well as developing the world before it ended. I find myself really impressed by how this series has managed to keep me interested throughout despite me knowing the ending, I have read this series through twice and it was just as great both times. Using the medium of a novel instead of a manga, it does a great job at letting you know what the read more
