Watch Trinity Blood
- 1 Season
Trinity Blood is an anime series that focuses on a period nine hundred years after the events of a lengthy apocalyptic conflict between humans and vampires, referred to as "Armageddon." When a spike occurs in Earth's population levels, humanity seeks to colonize the nearby planet of Mars with the assistance of the United Nations. While colonizing the planet, two forms of alien technology are revealed: the vampiric Bacillus virus and the curious Crusnik nanomachines. While the Bacillus virus proved capable of being injected into humans and turned them into "Methuselahs," the Crusnik proved more difficult to manipulate with only four infants: Lilith, Cain, Abel, and Seth, able to survive exposure to them. The Mars colonists eventually returned home to help rebuild after Armageddon's effects, but yet another breaks out; this time between the Bacillus-injected Methuselahs and the humans who stayed behind on Earth. All of the male Crusnik experiments wind up siding with the Methuselahs, with Lilith taking up with the Vatican (considered a safeguard of humanity). During this follow-up war, Lilith is slain by a maddened Cain with her body being delivered to the Vatican by Abel for burial. Abel mourns Lilith's passing, watching over her grave for 900 years. Trinity Blood's story begins with the Methuselahs, still a present danger, continuing their war on "Terrans," their nickname for humans. The Roman Catholic Church is one other major force in global conflicts, deploying its special Order of Rosen Kreuz to dispatch especially difficult or dangerous threats. Both sides use artifacts from before Armageddon, such as computers and airships to engage in an arms race. A third major power is the independent, and mostly human, monarchy of Albion. Albion has risen to power because it contains more of this lost technology than any other country, the secret of which lies in a special area known as the Ghetto. It is within the Ghetto that the most lost technologies can be found as well as where several Methuselahs live as slaves.
