Sirius the Jaeger is an action-packed, supernatural anime series that premiered on AT-X in 2018. The series is created by P.A. Works and directed by Masahiro Ando. The show follows a team of vampire hunters called Jaegers who pursue vampires and fight to save humanity from their terror.

Set in the 1930s in Tokyo, the series opens with the arrival of a group of mysterious strangers. This group comprises five individuals, each of whom belongs to a different race. They claim to be Jaegers, a group of elite hunters who specialize in killing vampires. Yuliy, the central protagonist of the series, who is also a werewolf, joins forces with the Jaegers to fight against the vampires.

The show's narrative centers around the Sigma Compact, a powerful relic that vampires seek to acquire as it is believed to hold the key to their survival. The Sigma Compact is said to possess an immense amount of magical power that can transform humans into vampires and vice versa. Yuliy's family and their clan have kept the artifact hidden from the vampires for years, but now, a powerful vampire clan has discovered its location. The Jaegers, led by the cool and collected vampire-hunter Yevgraf, must protect the Sigma Compact and save humanity from the impending destruction that may ensue if it falls into the wrong hands.

One of the standout features of Sirius the Jaeger is its superb animation and art. The characters are beautifully designed and detailed, and the action scenes are choreographed brilliantly. The series often showcases breathtakingly elaborate fight sequences that are sure to keep even the most action-starved viewers glued to their screens. The fight scenes are accompanied by an electrifying soundtrack that enhances the anime's overall experience.

As the story progresses, the themes of the show become more complex, with loyalty, friendship, and familial bonds being a recurring motif. The show does not flinch away from exploring these themes in a natural and organic way, which reinforces the emotional stakes of the conflicts faced by the characters. Even the villains in the show are not one-dimensional, as they have their own motivations and traumas that propel their actions.

Another aspect that sets Sirius the Jaeger apart is its eclectic cast of characters. Each member of the Jaeger team has their distinct personality, backstory, and fighting style, making them stand out from one another. The interactions between the characters are also fluid and dynamic, showcasing how the members work together to achieve a common goal.

The series does not shy away from its mature themes, with the show featuring gore and violence in several instances. This may not be suitable for a younger audience. However, the show does not revel in needless violence, and the narrative's message is not lost amongst the bloodshed. The plot twists and turns become more convoluted as the series progresses, leading to a satisfying conclusion that will leave viewers hooked until the end.

Sirius the Jaeger is a series that offers a refreshing take on the vampire hunter genre. The script is well-paced, engaging, and balances comedy, drama, and action effortlessly. The series also features an underlying story arc that adds to the excitement and mystery of each episode, with the snippets of the Sigma Compact's history being revealed incrementally. The series' ending ties up the loose ends and resolves the central conflicts while leaving room for a possible sequel.

In conclusion, Sirius the Jaeger is an outstanding anime series that is sure to resonate with fans of the supernatural, action, and adventure. The series features a solid story, robust characters, and breathtaking animation that brings the world of Tokyo in the 1930s to life. While the series may be mature in nature, it provides an engaging and captivating experience that is hard to resist.

Sirius the Jager is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (12 episodes). The series first aired on July 12, 2018.
