Vampire In The Garden Season 1: Plot Summary What Is The Animated Series About?
The Vampire Queen, Fine, and the Commander’s daughter, Momo, seek refuge in an idealised paradise where vampires and humans coexist peacefully in a desolate world where humans and vampires are constantly at war. Momo meets Fine while they are at war, and the two of them set out to find this paradise. They travel across the icy waters only to arrive in a strange village where there is plenty of happiness but something seems very off about it. The vampires sent by the council to get Fine and the soldiers and mercenaries sent by the commander to get Momo both catch up with them.
When the human soldiers discovered a vampire lair in the city they resided in, Momo was first introduced in Vampire In The Garden. The soldiers ambushed and slaughtered the vampires hiding out in the bunker. Momo paused because she lacked the courage to kill a vampire infant, endangering her allies. Her mother, the commander, reprimanded her for it later. The music box that belonged to the vampire child was preserved by Momo and her friend Mirena so that Momo could fix it before they listened to it play. Alcohol, dancing, and music were not permitted in human-inhabited areas. They were often ostracised by human culture because of their vampire associations. When a little melody came through the music box, Momo was delighted. She yearned to leave the restrictive environment because she was weary of constantly fighting.
When word of the ambush reached the vampire kingdom, the vampires — who were miffed at the humans — came up with a scheme to put an end to them. Alright, so the vampire queen was opposed to warfare and refused to consume blood. Like Momo, she yearned for a world where vampires and humans might coexist peacefully and without conflict. After a banquet party, she retires to her cabin, and Allegro joins her to discuss his choice to take the lead in the ambush they had planned on the humans. Allegro requests that she accompany and lead them into combat.
However, during the conflict, Fine saves Momo, who had fled society to find solace in the forest. Fine feels compelled to meet the woman after hearing her singing. However, as a last resort, a vampire uses a drug to transform into a monster and assault the human army. Momo is attacked by this monster, but she is protected by Fine and Mirena. However, it is too late for Fine to save Mirena. Momo takes Fine’s hand, and the two of them flee to Fine’s hiding place.
To get Momo back, the Commander dispatched men and got in touch with her brother, the mercenaries’ leader. When they go to the hideout, Fine and Momo are playing the piano and singing. They attempt to split them apart while shooting at an unwary fine. To remove Fine, Allegro arrives with the vampires. In a car, Momo and Fine make their way into the woods in search of heaven. Fine briefly relapses since she isn’t drinking blood, but Momo, who is staying in the vampire town and stealing blood bottles from a nearby human town, revives her. During Momo’s theft to return the blood to Fine, Allegro attacks her because he wants to know where Fine is. In an effort to preserve Fine, Momo throws Allegro aside. She and Fine continue travelling, but Fine’s illness gets worse over time.
They arrive in a place where vampires and humans coexist together. Together, they have fun dancing and singing, but there’s something off about it. Fine is untrustworthy. She does not want to interfere with Momo’s experience of finally experiencing bliss, though. As her illness worsens, she departs Momo and is assisted by Allegro.
Did Allegro Die?
After discovering Fine’s note, Momo becomes distraught and starts out to find her, but the locals stop her and lock her up. After making sure Fine would not awaken and abandoning her among the other coffins, they began searching for Fine and placed her in a coffin. Momo manages to flee, but the other residents of the town pursue her and push her into the enigmatic submarine. There she learns the truth—the locals maintain a vampire who is overfed blood and supplies the town with electricity thanks to his ability to regenerate. Momo is frustrated that she can’t get out of the submarine, but she is stuck there. Fine wakes up and saves her. Momo once more eluded capture as the army and the commander arrived at Fine at the same time.
They nevertheless pursue them and eventually meet Fine in a township. To save Momo and confront the troops, she uses the medication. Allegro confronts Momo and once more demands to know where Fine is. She acknowledges that Fine has used the substance. A mercenary approaches Momo in the background and puts her life in danger. Allegro rescues her but at the cost of his own life. Momo is urged by Allegro to travel to Fine and save her. After saving her, he loses his life by bleeding out. Allegro passed away regretting his final inability to save Fine as he had pledged to do. After she fell in love with another person, he had to witness her lose herself once more. But all he wanted was for her to be content.
Vampire In The Garden Season 1: Ending Explained Is Fine Dead?
Momo hurries to save the monster-turned-Fine. While Fine wrecked havoc on the mercenaries, she implored Fine to pay attention to her. As a last option, Momo’s uncle began combat with Fine. After hearing Momo’s message, Fine stopped torturing her uncle and her. Her uncle was lying on the floor contemplating the time his sister killed his vampire bride when she went through a phase of bloodlust. Momo and Fine got away.
When they arrived at an azalea field, Fine revealed that she had had a sweetheart named Momo who looked and spoke like her. Aria was the name she went by. After the humans and vampires learned that they were together and existed, Aria was killed. Aria was killed in the crossfire since this was noted as an unusual. Momo was originally intended to stand in for Aria, but Fine admitted that she later changed her mind and fell in love with Momo and her energy. Fine had grown to adore Momo for who she was during their journey. Fine took her final breath after telling Momo she loved her. While Fine was dying, Momo yelled out in agony. As she held Fine in her arms to give her a dignified burial, she collected herself. On the way out, she ran into her mother. Momo ignored the Commander’s pleas for her to come back and instead went on to live her own life with Fine in her arms. She permanently departed the stifling and harsh society.
Fine was properly buried by Momo so that he might rest peacefully and return to a life free of conflict. Momo left the town and never came back; instead, she stayed and discovered a new place where she realised the ideal of paradise she had discussed with Fine. She came across a town where vampires and humans coexisted harmoniously. They were free of an oppressive life, singing and dancing to their hearts’ content.
Momo was guided and watched over by Fine even though she had died and gone to the hereafter. Momo and Fine did manage to escape their oppressive circumstances. The humans had no joy in their existence; they had become robots and were searching for vampires to kill. The vampires appeared to be completely indolent and lacked any sense of discipline. In order to avenge their lost brethren, they were watching for opportunities to ambush people. They were diametrically opposed to one another. But having too much of anything is bad. Total discipline and total fun need to coexist in harmony. The humans had forgotten the simple joys of life, and the vampires did not adhere to discipline. Momo and Fine could be seen as mediators between these two extreme points. Momo succeeded in finding the balance between them and was successful in creating a place where both were observed in moderation.
If we draw a parallel between this anime world and the human world, it can be said that Momo and Fine tried to escape the rat race that we go through from the very beginning of our lives. Most people who try to escape this rat race have to pass some exceedingly hard tests, and those who cannot pass simply perish along the way. The real world is as cruel as the world depicted in the anime and has next to no mercy. However, when the ones who pass those tests succeed, they change the world. Momo was set on changing the suffocating world she was in. She held her head high and fought through the battles life threw at her. She then successfully changed the world, through small steps, into the vision she saw for it. Momo became the visionary the world needed when it plunged into chaos. Aria was the beginning of the movement, and Momo led it to its finesse. Fine acted as the guiding light both times.
