The Vanitas case study has gifted us with a short, but sweet new teaser clip, featuring a manga fan favorite: the daughter of the infamous Marquis de Sade.
The PV features Dominique de Sade, a noble vampire and childhood friend of the protagonist Noah. Our first look at her is fleeting but you can see it here:
The original manga The Case Study of Vanitas is published in Japan in Square Enix’s Monthly Gangan Joker manga magazine, and Yen Press publishes an English version in the United States, describing the history of the series as follows:
Rumors surrounding the Book of Vanitas, a disreputable mechanical grimoire, lure Noah, a young vampire in search of a friend’s salvation, to Paris. What awaits you in the City of Flowers, however, is not long hours walking the sidewalk or rummaging through dusty bookstores in search of the tome. Instead, his prey comes to him … in the arms of a man who claims to be a vampire doctor! Enmeshed in a conflict that threatens peace between humans and vampires, will Noah join the curious and slightly unbalanced Vanitas in her quest to save the vampires?
While you don’t hear her speak in the PV, Dominique is voiced, curiously, by Ai Kayano (Darkness in KONOSUBA). The Vanitas case study premieres July 2.
