In this article, I’m going to give you a step-by-step guide to the story of The Case Study of Vanitas. Here are some step-by-step spoilers and thoughts for you.
Noe, a young man on his way to Paris to find the Book of Vanitas, is a vampire.
The Book of Vanitas is a special book that interferes with the true names of vampires. Amelia, who he meets on the airship to Paris, is also a vampire, but she suddenly goes berserk.
Then a human appears and tells her that he is a doctor specializing in vampires and has come to cure her. He uses the Book of Vanitas and actually cures her.
His name is Vanitas, and he declares to Noah that he will save the vampires. From now on, the story of the survival of vampires will begin with Vanitas and Noah as the center of a battle over the Book of Vanitas.
Noe, a young man on his way to Paris to find the Book of Vanitas, is a vampire, and the Book of Vanitas is a special book that interferes with a vampire’s true name.
The Book of Vanitas is a special book that interferes with the true names of vampires, and it is said that whoever holds this book will become the Grim Reaper who destroys all vampires. The incident occurred on the airship heading to Paris.
Amelia, whom I met on the airship, who is also a vampire, suddenly begins to suffer and rampage. Will Amelia continue to turn into a monster? Then a human appears and says that he is a doctor specializing in vampires and has come to cure her.
He had the Book of Vanitas with him, and he used it to cure her.
His name is Vanitas, and he says that if the cause of the runaway vampires is left unchecked, they will be destroyed in the not-too-distant future. He also declared to Noe that he would stop it and that he would definitely save the vampires regardless of their intentions.
He then presses Noe to help him.
However, Noe stubbornly refuses.
After the ruckus on the airship, Noe loses consciousness and wakes up in a prison cell with Vanitas. Noah asks Vanitas why this is happening, and Vanitas tells him that Noah is his accomplice.
Soon after, they were released, because vampires are forgotten by humans, and any incident involving vampires has to be swept under the rug.
I received an invitation from the “Count”, the person who made the disappearance. He told Noah to come and pick up the luggage that was left in the airship.
Noah comes out of his prison cell and walks the streets of Paris for the first time, everything is new to him and he wanders from place to place with his eyes shining. When they finally arrive at their destination, they ask for their belongings back, but the Count does not trust the fact that Vanitas has cured the cursed vampire and wants to get rid of Amelia.
In order to prove that Vanitas can indeed cure cursed vampires, they promise to bring the vampire that is currently causing trouble in Paris and cure it in front of the Count.
They are given one day to find the vampire and set off to Paris to find him.
As of July 18, 2021, volume 9 of The Case Study of Vanitas has been released.

Noe’s memories of Mikhail began to flow into her mind. One day, Mikhail was kidnapped when he was a small child.
No.69 was chosen to take care of Mikhail, who was taken to an unknown place.
Mikhail is called No.71 and is subjected to Morrow’s human experiments. It’s really miserable, and Mikhail and the others can’t help but feel sorry for him.
