Japanese Title: 天狼 Sirius the Jaeger
Imperial Capital, 1930.
A strange group of people carrying musical instrument cases landed on Tokyo station.
They are called the “Jaegers”, who came to hunt vampires.
Amongst them, there stood a young man with striking serenity and unusual aura.
His name is Yuliy, a werewolf whose home village was destroyed by vampires.
Yuliy and the Jaegers engage in deadly battle over a mysterious holy arc only known as “The Arc of Sirius”.
What truth awaits them at the end…?
With eternal affinity and spiral of conspiracy entwine, the highly anticipated action-thriller anime begins!
Straightforward action. This is what Sirius is all about and it picks one of the most beloved supernatural conflicts to tell its story. A group of vampire hunters has recruited a werewolf into their ranks and are going after a specific band of bloodsuckers in order to take them out. It’s not the first action vampire story we’ve seen and it will certainly not be the last, but its execution is so polished that if it remains consistent in its quality and give us a story to remember, it has the potential to become one to make the best vampire anime lists for years to come. The action scenes are fluid and well-choreographed to the point that I was excited to see more of them. The vampires’ design feels menacing and in accordance to the general setting: a toned-down and almost sepia version of 1930s Tokyo where everything, from the buildings and the cars to fashion, is drawn with attention to the details of the decade. Not that we are experts in the 30s, but at least gives you that aura of authenticity.
Sirius seems to be a serious action anime and if you are a fan of vampire lore, this is one anime to add to your list.
