Story so far in the anime

In the previous episode, Jeanne demands The Book of Vanitas, but she is suddenly attacked from behind by a huge wolf-like monster. His malnomen is Loup-Garou. Vanitas activates the grimoire to change Thomas Breneux back into his human form, whose real name is Bucolicus. Although almost incapacitated, Jeanne still wants to fight Vanitas, but Noé emerges from the shadows holding Luca prisoner. Vanitas then surprisingly kisses her and declares his love.

Outraged, Jeanne grabs Luca and leaves. Meanwhile, Nox and Manet find Breneux dead. He was attacked by Charlatan, the vampiric monster who had corrupted his name. Following Vanitas’ demonstration of the grimoire’s power, Orlock grants a stay of execution of Amelia, who is assigned to work as a maid at Hotel Chouchou.

Noé bites Amelia’s arm to read her memories, and he sees a parade of demons and Charlatan. Dominique de Sade arrives and claps a chain around Noé’s neck. She leads him towards a hidden doorway to the barrier within Orlock’s facility and reveals that Lord Ruthven will be appearing that night at a masquerade ball. As they cross the barrier, Vanitas leaps after them grabbing Noé’s hand and they emerge in Altus Paris, the vampire version of Paris.
