Discover the Intricate World of Heaven Burns Red

Besieged by mysterious life-forms known as “the Phage,” Earth teeters on the brink of ruin. All human weaponry proved futile against the Phage’s onslaught, and without any means to fight back, humanity has been forced to retreat. Land was forsaken, and nations were erased in the ensuing chaos. Now, over half of the Earth’s surface has been lost to the Phage.

With little time left and the danger of extinction looming, humans developed a brand-new, ultimate weapon called “Seraph,” and those endowed with Seraphim can finally fight against the Phage with vigor. Those who can master their Seraphim are gathered to create a special squadron, becoming humanity’s last beacon of hope. They have one thing in common: they are all girls with special talents. Among them stands Ruka Kayamori, poised to throw herself into the war against the Phage.

Special Message from Jun Maeda

Hello, everyone, this is Jun Maeda. You may have heard of the global craze for taiyaki inspired by the work “Kanon,” but are you familiar with its original creator and head writer, Naoki Hisaya? I had the honor of being a sub-writer for that project. Naoki Hisaya started the trend of “visual novels that make players cry,” a pursuit that I have passionately followed for over 20 years. The pinnacle of this journey is “Heaven Burns Red.” Whereas Hisaya used sophisticated storytelling techniques to evoke tears, I took a rather direct approach, and that’s the essence of “Heaven Burns Red.” To think that this work would be released in places where he sparked the taiyaki craze — such a delightful coincidence feels like fate. We eagerly look forward to sharing “Heaven Burns Red” with you. Thank you.
