The Betrayal Knows My Name is a captivating supernatural thriller anime that was produced by FUNimation. This show delves into the mysterious and surreal world of demons, magic, and the occult. The story begins with a boy named Yuki Sakurai, who was abandoned as a child and adopted by a loving family. Yuki has always been able to see ghosts and spirits, and he often feels like he doesn't belong in the human world. His life is turned upside down when he meets a mysterious man named Zess, who tells him that he is not human, but a "Twilight."

Twilights are beings with extraordinary powers who can see ghosts and spirits, and who are often hunted down by demons. Zess introduces Yuki to a group of other Twilights, who have formed a sort of family to protect and care for each other. However, their peaceful existence is shattered when Yuki discovers that he is the reincarnation of a powerful evil demon, and he is being hunted by both demons and Twilights alike.

The Betrayal Knows My Name combines elements of romance, action, and suspense to create a unique and compelling storyline. The relationship between Yuki and Zess is central to the plot, as Zess becomes Yuki's teacher and mentor, guiding him through his struggles with his identity and his powers. The other Twilights also play significant roles in the story, each with their own unique backstories and motivations.

One of the most striking aspects of this show is its visual style. The animation is fluid and detailed, with intricate character designs and stunning backgrounds. The use of color is particularly noteworthy, with bold and vibrant hues that give the show a dreamlike quality.

In addition to its stunning visuals, The Betrayal Knows My Name also boasts a compelling soundtrack. The hauntingly beautiful opening theme song, "Uragiri no Nai Sekai Made," sets the tone for the show, while the orchestral score perfectly complements the action and emotion on screen.

Overall, The Betrayal Knows My Name is a must-watch anime for fans of the supernatural genre. Its unique characters, captivating storyline, and stunning visuals make it a standout among its peers.
