Audiences interested in The Case Of Vanitas will be happy to hear the behind-the-scenes of the show. Additionally, the show is created by studio Bones, who are responsible for anime such as Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood. Fans of the show will be happy to hear that studio Bones offered a documentary showing their work. These are some of the details of the animation process below:
The Process Behind The Case Of Vanitas
Studio Bones took the time to design the show’s aesthetics to become the best it can be. The studios’ attention to detail is present in the setting and character designs.
What’s more, the show’s process begins with the series composition, which screenwriter Deko Akao handles. The studio can figure out how much of the story can be in that timeframe by breaking the series episodes down—allowing Bones to control the show’s pacing.
Additionally, the storyboards help to illustrate the character’s movements which act as blueprints for the episode. Although some of the storyboards are faithful to the book, the anime adaptation has set-ups to make the manga moments happen fluidly. However, some moments differ from the manga visually to look more appealing, such as the action scenes.
The character designs were also drawn to animate as if they were three-dimensional entirely. Furthermore, the studio asked the creator if they can add some extra flair to the character designs for the animations. Although they also maintained the spirit of the author’s intentions.
The show’s color direction is firmly based on the manga’s colors while still having the director’s approval and animation in mind. The studio also took the time to use color to evoke emotion, such as red being passionate.
Currently, the first episode of the show has released on July 3, 2021.
Summary For The Show
There once lived a vampire known as Vanitas, hated by his own kind for being born under a blue full moon, as most arise on the night of a crimson one. Afraid and alone, he created the “Book of Vanitas,” a cursed grimoire that would one day take his vengeance on all vampires; this is how the story goes at least.
Vanitas no Carte follows Noé, a young man travelling aboard an airship in 19th century Paris with one goal in mind: to find the Book of Vanitas. A sudden vampire attack leads him to meet the enigmatic Vanitas, a doctor who specializes in vampires and, much to Noé’s surprise, a completely ordinary human. The mysterious doctor has inherited both the name and the infamous text from the Vanitas of legend, using the grimoire to heal his patients. But behind his kind demeanor lies something a bit more sinister… (Synopsis from MyAnimeList)
