The Case Study of Vanitas Episode 3 has been released, promising to be one of the most aesthetic anime of the Summer 2021 Season. Studio Bones, home to Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and My Hero Academia, would settle for no less.
Things are really starting to pick up, with new characters and an intriguing location revealed, meaning that fans of the manga and not only, will be looking for more content.
If you're one of them, keep reading. Below, you will find our handy guide to Vanitas no Carte Episode 4, including its release date and time, and more!
Vanitas no Carte 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.
Noe 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.

Vanitas and Noé locate Thomas Breneux and attempt to heal him but they're stopped by Luca and Jeanne, who demand to be given the Book of Vanitas. Jeanne is then attacked by a vampire whose true name has been corrupted to Loup-Garou. Vanitas restores Thomas Breneux to his original state as a vampire with the true name Bucolicus.
Noé manages to save Vanitas from Jeanne's rage by holding Luca prisoner, while Vanitas kisses Jeanne and declares his love. Breneux is later found dead, killed by Charlatan, the vampire who corrupted his name in the first place.
Seeing what the grimoire of Vanitas can do, Orlok decides not to execute Amelia, but he makes her work as a live-in maid in hotel Chouchou so that he can keep a watch on her. Noé, who can read memories through blood, bites Amelia's arm to find out more about her recent affliction. All he sees is a creepy - though unbelievably aesthetic - the parade of the Charlatan and several masked demons.
Dominique de Sade appears and guides Noé through Orlok's facilities revealing that there will be a masquerade that lord Ruthven is going to attend. At the end of the episode, Dominique, Vanitas, and Noé emerge to Altus Paris, the alternative Paris of vampires.
