Once there was a vampire known as Vanitas born under the Blue full Moon. He was hated by other vampires for not being born under the Crimson moon. I didn’t know that vampires could be racist too. Anyway, being all alone, Vanitas created a cursed grimoire that would avenge all vampires who discriminate against those born under the blue full moon.
The story also revolves around a young man traveling to Paris in the 19th century with one goal in his mind, which was nothing more than to find the book of Vanitas.
A sudden attack of Vampire leads him to meet an enigmatic Vanitas, who’s a doctor apparently. This mysterious vampire is a doctor who heals his patients through the spells in his book!
