Mars Red is set in 1923 and a time when a mysterious artificial blood called Ascara has appeared which makes the vampires a far more significant threat.
In response, the Japanese government sets up a unit called within the military called “Code Zero” to tackle the vampire menace.
The unit is lead by a Lieutenant General Nakajima and seems to contain, or work with vampires, who each have a class ranking.
