Listed as one of Yu Alexius’ top 20 anime to watch this fall 2017, Dies Irae officially released its English subtitled trailer in the latest promotional video from Crunchyroll.
Fuji Ren is just an ordinary student who lives in the Suwabara city. He’s discharged from the hospital after a fist-fight duel with his good pal, Yusa Shirou, who went missing right after. Even so, he is getting used to the normal school life again with the help of his childhood friend Ayase Kasumi and senior Himuro Rea. One day, a series of indiscriminate beheading murder cases started in the Suwabara city. For some reason, ever since then, he started to suffer from nightmares of himself on a guillotine. All of a sudden, everything changed in a blink of eye. Some powerful figures are secretly manipulating behind the scenes. The street is now a war field; incomprehensible, and absurd. Facing the stark reality where he has to fight to survive, will Ren be able to return to his mundane, ordinary life…?
