Future volumes of Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign are planned to be released three times a year from now on. As for the story of the manga, it takes place after vampires have risen to rule over the Earth. Yuichiro is out for blood as well, but rather than drinking it he wants to kill every vampire on the planet. Unfortunately for him, vampires are much stronger than humans and the only way to kill them is by mastering a Cursed Gear. To make matters worse, the only way he can join humanity’s elite Vampire Extermination Unit, the Moon Demon Company, is to prove that he can work as a member of the team which is something he is not very keen on doing.
