D_Cide Traumerei is an anime that channels the Cthulhu mythos and is due for this summer.
The anime is set in a world in which scared people make occult pacts with unknowable ancient beings. These beings warp reality.
The trailer for D_Cide Traumerei hints at some Lovecraftian elements but is also laden with other anime tropes of large swords, school groups and even a (sort of) cat-girl.
The protagonist is a high school student called Ryuhei Oda, who likes to kickbox. Ryuhei appears to be cheerful and outgoing, but he witnessed his older brother’s strange death.
Ryuhei is bitten by a strange creature called Tris… and everything changes after that.
