MARS RED Episode 3 has just aired, with a big plot twist, another tear-jerker - theatrical as always - and, of course, vampires and 20s imagery. What can go wrong with such a combination?
The premiere of the 12-episode anime felt a bit like a one-shot story, introducing the setting and characters, rather than doing a great deal to advance the plot, but since Episode 2, things have started picking up, slowly indicating where the story might go.
Looking forward to MARS RED Episode 4? Keep reading. Below you will find our guide with a recap and all the information you need about the release date and airing time of Episode 4 in different timezones.
MARS RED Overview and Episode 3 Recap
MARS RED is based on a stage reading play and its manga adaptation. The year is 1923. Following the changes brought about by WWI, Japan is moving towards a new era of technology and industrialization. But there's a twist, as this is more than the Japan we know; it's a country with a vampire problem.
The main character Yoshinobu Maeda is called back on active duty to tackle the problem. After an establishing episode in which he tried, and failed, to recruit a recently contaminated actress to the vampire tracking cause, the plot is really starting to pick up.

In Episode 3, two newly made vampires join "Code Zero," the operation that deals with the vampire problems and is partly manned by vampires who help hunt their own. One of them, Yamagami, is a married man who misses his wife, who was told he had died.
Meanwhile, Suwa, a Code Zero member, discovers that Deffrot, the child actor working in the nearby theatre, is a vampire. This is a complicated issue since there are so few underage vampires. Will he pose a problem?
