is 500 years after Armageddon left the earth ravished. Desperate
for even the slightest shred of hope in an uncertain future,
the people turned to religion for solace. The Catholic Church,
although wrought with corruption, became the prime force in
restoring civilisation. But an enemy far worse than corruption
lingered in the darkness... Vampires now feed on the blood
of humanity. To ensure peace, individuals within the Church
have secretly formed the ultra-tactical team, the AX. Under
the command of Lady Caterina Sforza, Duchess of Milano, the
AX is committed to protecting humankind and punishing those
who threaten the Vatican's interests. Ironically, the most
powerful agent within the AX is not human. Father Abel Nightroad
is a crusnik, a shape-shifter able to feed on the blood of
vampires. It is he who leads the fight against a legion of
vampires known as the Rosen Kreuz, whose members will do whatever
it takes to become earth's superior species. As a new countdown
to destruction begins, it's up to the AX to save humanity
and to resurrect the long-forgotten era of peace...
on a series of novels by the late Sunao Yoshida, which were
subsequently transformed into manga adaptations, the neo-Gothic
sci-fi adventure Trinity Blood is a 24-episode anime
series recounting an epic battle between good and evil as
bloodsucking vampires fight tooth and claw against emissaries
of the Church with the earth as the prize.
Two contains episodes five to eight:
Today, and Tomorrow: Father Abel Nightroad escorts Sister
Esther Blanchett to the Vatican. Here she meets Lady Caterina
Sforza, William Walter Wordsworth, Father Havel, Sister Noelle
Bor, and Sister Kate Scott. It's not long before Esther gets
lost while exploring the Vatican. She comes across a young
boy who is crying. It's not until others arrive that Esther
realises that the boy is in fact Pope Alessandro XVIII.
Dancer: In response to a murder on holy ground, in Amsterdam,
Lady Caterina sends in Father Hugue, better known as "Sword
Dancer", to head up the investigation. Despite how everything
looks, the local vampires are not responsible for the murder.
Cabel, the leader of the local vampires, realises that the
unconscious memories of Agnes can help prove their innocence.
But, with so much at stake on the investigation's outcome,
no one can be trusted and no one is safe.
Never Land: When ships off the coast of Albion are
attacked by vampire fairies, Abel seeks out an old comrade,
Father Leon Garcia - a former AX member now doing hard time.
In exchange for his assistance, Leon will get his prison sentence
reduced by 20 years. When they arrive on a nearby island they
discover a land full of young children. This episode pays
homage to the Peter Pan story.
After the unexplained destruction of the National Palace in
Spain, Father Abel and Sister Noelle are sent to Barcelona
to see if they can find out why it collapsed. Noelle reveals
her true feelings for Abel. Abel soon discovers a mysterious
stranger, who is behind the Spanish destruction. It looks
like Abel has met his match - the stranger is armed with a
weapon that could kill thousands of innocents in seconds.

One. All we get are textless opening and closing
titles and a couple of trailers for other anime releases.
