Plot Summary


Ren Fujii is a normal student who just had a fistfight with his former best friend, leading him to break off their friendship. But with the help of his childhood friend, Kasumi Ayase, and upperclassman, Rea Himuro, he's gradually returning to his normal school life.

Then a series of brutal murders in which the victims are decapitated begins to strike their city. Strangely, at the same time, Ren starts to have terrifying nightmares of being beheaded by a guillotine. But these are just a prelude to the painful and terrifying battles to come.

Their daily life has turned inside-out. Supermen are lurking in the darkness. The town has become a battlefield as Ren is consumed by insane happenings beyond his imagination. Faced with the reality that he cannot survive unless he fights, will he be able to retake his normal life?

It comes out at 10:05am Pacific. So just wait a little bit longer and it will be up.

And now it is up as it's starting with episode 0 and not 1: http://www.crunchyroll.com/dies-irae/episode-0-twilight-girl-749455

Episode 0

Lots of torture and fighting here as Germany during WWII was quite bloody. Reinhard sure is a dangerous man there taking down that trap with ease. Not much in the way of a story, but nevertheless the action is nice to watch.

The anime is 18 episodes btw but 12 will only air on TV. It makes me curious if CR will stream the remainding ones online in the future.

Ubermensch?

Judging by the artwork on the wikipedia page, the antagonists are large breasted women who like to wear their shirts like 19th century Hussars wore their pelisse.

Dafuq did I just watch? Feels like it's trying to out chuunibyo the Fate series, but the direction makes the plot incomprehensible. The poor animation and lazy fight choreography doens't help in the least. The level of edgelord cheesiness almost made up for it all, if the writing was slightly more coherent it would be in the 'so bad it's good' territory.

I like the idea of the show so far but damn, the story and characters are all over the place.

Is episode 0 meant to set up everything? At any rate, I'm kinda confused after everything went on. Might need to re-watch. I haven't read the VN yet or plan to at the moment.

Too many characters.

I have no idea what I just watched, but since this is just episode 0, hopefully episode 1 will make sense. Btw, does anyone know if this episode counts towards the 18 episode total this show is going to have?

Oh wow, I wasn't expecting to see Tanya Degurechaff here.

Anyway, I have no idea what was supposed to be happening. I guess I'll have to wait for episode 1.

Since they haven't introduced Ren Fujii yet, it seems like this episode 0 doesn't get us up to the advertised plot line yet

Well that first Episode was a hot mess. I could barely pay attention, it was all over the place and the direction was weak. Hopefully the rest picks up in terms of quality heavily.

Honestly the anime is a travesty, but the visual novel that it is based on is an amazing piece of fiction. One of the best cast of characters and in particular villians out there. Just read the VN.
