Lord of Vermilion Synopsis
The anime is set in Tokyo in the year 2030. There is an incident in a suburban area. After a resonant sound, some red mist surrounds the area. Whosoever hears the sound loses their consciousness. The government assumes that it might be a virus and they grow fearful of an epidemic so they blockade Tokyo. They move their base to Osaka. After six days, the people who lost consciousness wake up without any reason. The normal life starts to resume in Tokyo but near at the blockaded border strange things happen to occur. Those who have awakened have a hidden blood power arise.
