    Set in Tokyo, it's January 29, 2030. High-frequency resonance is observed in the vicinity of Tokyo, and the red fog rolls into the city. Those who hear the sound, humans and animals alike, pass out, losing consciousness. Everything shuts down in Tokyo, believing that the fog is carrying an unknown virus that causes an epidemic. However, six days later, after the incident, people wake up as if nothing happened. After that, Tokyo's sealed-off city sections gradually return to normal. However, since the high-frequency resonance, some "bizarre events" start to happen, and people find themselves being pulled deeper into more mysteries. Meanwhile, young people start to become aware of themselves and release their power hidden in their blood, discovering themselves as "vessel of wisdom blood." Together, being led by something unknown, they meet, communicate, and face the unavoidable circle of fate, sacrificing their own lives.

    Episode 1

    Coming to a screeching halt.

    Seeing that this show is adapted from a card game (and more specially, a video game where cards are digitally collected) that I wasn't expecting much out of this. And so far that's what it feels like here as it starts of with a teaser that lets viewers know that there's going to be intense action before properly beginning the story. So it starts with the big screech that awakens some hidden power within their blood, and then five months later Chihiro awakens and the world didn't realize what just happened, and all of the sudden monsters attack and one of them has claimed his master. Well, Chihiro will soon get in the action in a big way here as that's how it ends.

    So with that, the usual trial period rules apply. While I am willing to give a show like this quite a bit of leeway given the source material, it didn't exactly leave a favorable impression. I'll give it some more episodes before deciding what I want to do about this show.
