Discover the intricate world of The sky burns red

Besieged by mysterious life forms known as “the Phage,” Earth teeters on the brink of ruin. All human weapons proved useless against the Phage’s onslaught, and with no means to defend themselves, humanity was forced to retreat. The land was abandoned and nations were wiped out in the resulting chaos. Now, over half of Earth’s surface has been lost to the Phage.

With little time left and the danger of extinction looming, humans developed a new ultimate weapon called the “Seraph,” and those gifted with Seraphim can finally fight the Phage with vigor. Those who can master their Seraphim gather together to create a special squad, becoming humanity’s last beacon of hope. They have one thing in common: they are all girls with special talents. Among them is Ruka Kayamori, ready to charge into the war against the Phage.

The pinnacle of this journey is The sky burns redWhile Hisaya used sophisticated narrative techniques to elicit tears, I took a rather direct approach, and that is the essence of The sky burns redTo think that this work would premiere in places where it sparked a taiyaki craze… such a delightful coincidence seems like fate. We look forward to sharing it. The sky burns red With you. Thank you.”
