Manga launched in January 2020, 2nd volume shipped on April 15
The second compiled book volume of Kemuri Karakara‘s manga adaptation of Bun’ō Fujisawa’s MARS RED dramatic stage reading series revealed on April 15 that the manga will reach its climax with the third volume.
MARS RED takes place in 1923, and vampires have existed for quite a while. But now, the number of vampires is increasing and a mysterious, artificial blood source called Ascra has appeared.
The Japanese government, in turn, creates “Code Zero,” a unit within the army tasked with taking down the vampiric forces. And what better way to track vampires than by using vampires?
Created by Lieutenant General Nakajima, this unit has historically been in the business of information war, but has been re-assigned to solve the vampire crisis. It’s up to Code Zero and the S-class vampire Deffrot to investigate this increase and put a stop to it before society crumbles.
The first stage production of MARS RED debuted in 2013, with more shows in 2015 and 2017.
