The official website of Lord of Vermillion: Guren no Ou, the animated television adaptation of the game Lord of Vermilion by Square Enix, has revealed that May'n will be in charge of interpreting the opening of the series.

The direction will be in hands of Eiji Suganuma (Karneval), being Masashi Suzuki (Oda Nobuna not Yabou) the person in charge of the scripts and Toshie Kawamura (Kaminomi zo Shiru Sekai: Megami-hen) the one of the designs of personages.

Yuuki Kaji will be the voice of the protagonist Chihiro Kamina and Misato Fukuen will be the voice of Yuri Shiraki.

The story begins on January 29, 2030 in Tokyo, where a strange high frequency resonance and a red fog are covering the city. Everyone who hears the sound, human and animal, loses consciousness. Tokyo closes completely believing that the fog is a kind of new virus that causes an epidemic, but six days after the incident, people wake up as if it had not happened. Little by little sections of Tokyo are opening, but since that fact, strange things begin to happen to those involved. The younger ones begin to discover that they have new powers thanks to their blood, and they will be known as "carriers of the blood of wisdom". Attracted by something unknown, they will meet and face fate sacrificing their own lives.
