Hiiragi Mahiru: The Demonic Flowers

© Yamato Yamamoto

I talked about it in the previous post focus on a anime (or manga) female character and people who know me, know that I’m not really fond of the character. I probably passed more time talking bad about the character I will talk about today that say good thing about her.

But more I read the manga, more I read the light novel, more I see Hiiragi Mahiru, from Seraph of the End differently and maybe writing this post will make me like her a little more by seeing her under a new light.

Special Halloween | Top 10 Vampire and Demon of Seraph of the End

Hello Everyone!
Happy Halloween!

I don’t normally do special post for day like that (minus Megane Day) but I figure this year I could give you a short list of my favorite Vampire and Demon from the series Seraph of the End. Just a little note for those you watched only the anime, didn’t read the light novels or are not up to date with the manga (scanlations), this post might/will contain spoilers.


10th – Krul Tepes
krul tepes, 3rd progenitor, vampire queen of japan
There was a time where Krul was higher on this list and it was the time where I had no clue what was her goal and this mystery made her more interesting, while I still don’t know clearly the reason why she is acting this way (other than the fact she want to find her brother), I’m less curious about her and what she drive her. I feel like we will know more about what she really want later on but for now the one who was once the Vampire Queen of Japan will sit at the 10th position
9th – Urd Geales
Urd Geales, 2nd Progenitor, sexy russian vampire
I would really like to give you a great reason for him to be on this list other than “he is handsome” but for now I don’t have one. We don’t know much about him so far, we know that he is one of the 2nd Progenitor (you will meet the other one later on the list), that he is part of the Russian faction and that he like ballet (or opera can’t remember) OH yes he is strong but it’s not a surprise he is a Noble vampire plus the 2nd Progenitor. To be honest, I feel like that for the moment Urd is more there to get the plot (one of the them) going.
8th – Byakkomaru
byakkomaru, white tiger, demon, fluffy riffle
See I don’t only like cute guy… I like tiger too.
I would have been crazy to not add Byakkomaru to this list, one it’s a tiger which is cool enough, plus he is really loyal to the human with who it form a contract with. Byakkomaru doesn’t care about what it’s happening, as long as Shinya is not hurt everything is okay, but soon as you threaten Shinya, the beautiful white tiger will show his fang and claw.
7th – Mahiru / Mahiru-no-Yo
mahiru hiiragi, mahiru-no-yo, demon
I once said that I hate Mahiru, now my relation with Mahiru character is similar of the one I have with Guren. There is moment where I feel really bad for what happened to her, she just wanted to be a normal girl and protect a little sister, but other time I wished Guren would have just destroyed her. Mahiru is probably one of the most interesting character of the series and she surely ned to have her place on this list. She was born with a demon inside her, then she was turn into a vampire for finally becoming a complete demon. Despite the fact that as a demon she still lust for blood, she still really care about her little sister Shinoa.
6th – Ky Luc
ky luc, 5th progenitor, cutie vampy
Ky is an other cutie vampy, he is a 5th Progenitor which makes him a noble vampire, he came in Japan with Urd and while he doesn’t do much other than fighting the main cast, Ky remain more interesting than Urd just cause of his personality. Like all vampire he exist for blood, but he doesn’t like to be bored and being vampire mean that he would be bored for the eternity unless he find some kind of distraction.
5th Asuramaru
asuramaru, ashira tepes, demon
Asuramaru was once a human then a vampire to eventually become a demon cause of the 1st Progenitor. During the time he was a vampire, he was known under the name of Ashira Tepes, he was Krul’s older brother. The reason why the 1st Progenitor wanted to make him a demon is still unknown and I feel like it will take some times before we get to know the information since it seemed to be a key to the story.
What make Asuramaru interesting is his relation with Yuu, the latter make the demon appear more “human” as the story progress. He still have his lust for blood, but now he goes more according with Yuu feeling instead of trying to possessing him at every occasion.
4th – Saito / Rigr Stafford
saito, rigr stafford, 2nd progenitor
I would really like to tell you who is Saito, like really, however other than telling you that he was once the 2nd Progenitor, I can’t tell you much. I can’t even tell you what he is. He is not a vampire anymore, but he doesn’t seem to be a demon either. There is a lot of question mark surrounding him, like the reason why he worked with the Brotherhood of the Thousand Night sect (also known as the Hyakuya sect), I feel like it have something to do with the experimentation of the Seraph of the End and the 1st Progenitor tho. No matter what Saito is, I can tell you that you can’t totally trust him, even if he doesn’t seems like he is part of the villain group.
3rd – Mikaela Hyakuya
mikaela hyakuya. vampire
Mika didn’t want to become a vampire, he didn’t want at all, but thanks to Ferid, Krul had to turn him into one. It took some times before he was a complete vampire, since he didn’t want to drink human blood, until that Yuu kind of force him to do it. It was either drink Yuu blood or becoming a demon…
Now Mika is a complete vampire, why vampire desire, but his thirst for blood is not as bad as some other vampire, in fact Mika is for more interested in running away with Yuu than anything else.
I have to say that there is moment where Mika’s annoyed me and I can,t really explain why, it have probably something to do with his obsession over Yuu.
2nd – Ferid Bathory
farid bathory, 7th progenitor, fabulous vampire
You can hate him as much as you want, but yo can’t deny the fact that Ferid while not introduced like it, is an important part of the story, without him the story can’t progress at all. He is like Guren, he give hint here and there about what to do next. Ferid is fabulous and extravagant, he has other priority than blood, now if I could tell you want are those priority it would be great, the only thing I can say is it surely have something to do with the 1st Progenitor and maybe a little bit with Saito.
The relation between to two is a bit weird since Saito is the one who turned Ferid into a vampire before casting him away. There is moment where I feel like Ferid just want to prove Saito wrong and makes him regret his decision.
1st – Crowley Eusford
crowley eusford, 13th progenitor more like 7th
Some of you shouldn’t be surprised to see Crowley at in the 1st spot, he is on my header after all.
Of course the first reason why Crowley is my favorite blood sucker it’s because of his overall look, tall and really good-looking, the guy is sexy as hell. But as the chapter where going, I learn to know him more and now I see him more like a guardian for Yuu and his friends. Yes he do stick along Ferid’s plan (even if like all of us he have no fucking clue what Ferid is really planning), but I do believe that he you act on his own if something bad was the happen, not just cause Ferid told him to do it.



This was my Top 10 Vampire and Demon from the series Seraph of the End as Halloween Special post, hope you enjoyed it. !!
