If you're here for it all, we got you covered. In the sections below, you will find our handy guide to Vanitas no Karte Episode 12, including its release date and time, and a recap so that you can be the first to catch up with the finale!
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.
Warning: Spoilers for Vanitas no Karte Episode 11!
Taking Domincue's advice, Jeanne asks Vanitas on a date. As Vanitas had once stated that he could never be with someone who truly loves him, Jeanne thinks that if she pretends to be in love with him, he will grow tired of her and stop pestering her. When she does so, she doesn't expect Vanitas to accept her invitation. Nor does she expect the date to be fun.
Meanwhile, Noé has an important conversation with Lord Ruthven about Vanitas, Noé's teacher, and vampires. Ruthven asks Noé how he feels about vampires and humans. When Noé - who has proven himself to be a pacifist time and again - reveals that he feels the same about them, as both humans and vampires have the same capacity to do good or evil, Ruthven attacks him, biting his neck.
Jeanne and Vanitas sit at the park, where they see a boy injuring his knee. The blood activates Jeanne's bloodlust, and she tries to attack the boy. Instead, Vanitas lets her drink his own blood. Back home, Vanitas, who is concerned about this sanity slippage, asks Jeanne if she is a curse-bearer, but she's unable to answer. Vanitas cannot attempt to cure her until he is certain but promises that he will kill her if she completely loses control.
