The Case Study of Vanitas Episode 8 Recap
Vanitas no Karte is based on a manga of the same name and follows Noé, a young vampire in search of the Book of Vanitas. This grimoire was reportedly made by Vanitas, a vampire of the Blue Moon, who was despised by the vampires of the Red Moon - the traditional vampire society.
Noé meets a man named Vanitas, after the original creator of the grimoire, who claims to be a human doctor for vampires, using the book to heal them from the corruption of their true name, which makes them predators against their will. Noé and Vanitas join forces, but the first episode ends with Noé admitting that he had to kill Vanitas by the end of their joint journey.
When questioned about his motivation and future steps, Vanitas asks Lord Ruthven for an audience with the vampire queen. As she has not made any appearances recently, Vanitas believes she might be dead, or behind the malnomen curses. Lord Ruthven becomes enraged and banishes Vanitas from his presence.
Noé and Vanitas go back to the human world, where they begin to investigate the case of a vampire disappearance. The two find out that the Chausseurs, the church's anti-vampire unit have taken a cursed vampire into a dungeon, and they try to help.
Dressed as Chasseurs, Noé and Vanitas break into the dungeon, where they're found by Roland Fortis, a vampire hunter who sees through their disguise and prepares to kill them. How will they overcome this? Stay tuned to find out!
