Tokyo 2030. Suddenly, high-frequency resonance sounds are observed around Tokyo and at the same time, the city is surrounded by red mist. Whether human beings or animals, everyone loses consciousness when hearing this sound. All governmental functions of the capital temporarily relocate to Osaka. This phenomenon is said to be an unknown virus, and because the government was concerned about further epidemics, Tokyo was closed down. However, six days after the phenomenon called ‘Dai Kyoumei’ (lit. great resonance), the people and animals who had lost consciousness suddenly awoke as if nothing had happened. Soon after the blocked city of Tokyo gradually regains its functions as a town, various abnormal incidents begin to occur and the lives of people become stranger and stranger. Meanwhile, the young people awaken to unleash the power hidden in the blood, ‘Eiketsu no Utsuwa’. They’re being pulled by each other’s powers to inevitable encounters, communicate their thoughts, sharpen their lives and are inexplicably drawn together into a harsh destiny.
Lord of Vermilion is a popular arcade game and celebrates its 10th anniversary with this anime adaptation.
