Decebalus, the leader of the Dacians, was a powerful king whose reign ended with his suicide following his defeat at the hands of the Romans in the 2nd century AD, preferring death over subjugation. Decebalus’ defeat and suicide marked the end of the Second Dacian War, and the absorption of Dacia into the Roman Empire. The spirit of Decebalus, however, did not die. This is most ostentatiously seen, perhaps, in the colossal rock sculpture of Decebalus’ head.
Lots of cool stuff for Owari no Seraph in the June issue of Otomedia Magazine (Amazon US | JP), including a new poster of Guren Ichinose and Ferid Bathory illustrated by key animator Miyoko Shikibu (式部美代子), and anime designs for new and upcoming characters, like Krul Tepes.
