The Case of Vanitas Episode 14 has a lot to answer for! Episode 13 has just premiered, and it was a pure chaos of stunning visuals, entertaining interactions, and unexpectedly high stakes. The release date of the 14th episode will introduce new characters we only got to glimpse in the first episode of the second cour.
Can't wait? Keep reading! Below, you'll find everything you need to know about The Case Study of Vanitas Episode 14, or The Case Study of Vanitas Part 2 Episode 1, including its release date, airing time, and more!
The Case of Vanitas Episode 13 Recap
Based on a beloved manga of the same name, The Case Study of Vanitas follows Noe, a young vampire, and Vanitas, an overpowered human, as they grudgingly team up to rescue vampires from the corruption of their true name, while investigating disturbing mysteries in the vampire world.
To complicate matters, the enigmatic Vanitas makes life difficult for Noe, who, however, can't help being intrigued by his new companion. But as the two embark on occasionally hilarious adventures, there's still a shadow looming over their partnership. Noe, who narrates his story from a later time, reveals that he killed Vanitas at the end of their joint journey.
Episode 13 starts by reintroducing Noe and Vanitas' new mission; to investigate the Beast of Gedauvan. In the 18th century, the Beast was responsible for the deaths of at least one hundred people and has now been spotted again.
True to his overly excitable personality, Noe is ridiculously giddy about the trip, while Vanitas is his usual grumpy self, reinforcing the dynamic we know and love. All fun stops, however, when the Noe, Vanitas, their companions, and the local soldiers, encounter the Beast in the flesh. Vanitas surmises the Beast is part of a complicated malnomen curse, which includes the manipulation of time - given that the monster has only recently resurfaced.
Amidst the chaos, Noe loses Vanitas and bumps into Astolfo, a young paladin with very strong opinions against vampires. Thinking that he can befriend him, as he did with Roland, Noe gets very much beaten up, as the young man is much harsher.
Jeanne, who failed to slay the Beast years ago, arrives at the scene unexpectedly and attempts to finish the business despite Vanitas and Noe's protest that the vampire whose name has been corrupted might still be saved.
Of course, it would all be resolved a little too easily if Jeanne succeeded in her task, so she had to be interrupted - and how! The Charlatan and his troupe arrive and taunt everyone once more. Even the famed book of Vanitas fails to save the day, and our main characters find themselves incapacitated. The episode ends on an enigmatic note, with a young man and woman we've yet to properly meet, finding the book and taking it with them.
The premiere was a feast of colors and stunning visuals. As always, everything that happened looked prettier than any vampire fight has the right to, and I didn't know that I'd missed the banter between Vanitas and Noe until I had more of it! The new cour promises to maintain a high quality and we're excited for more!
