Plantation 13: Cerasus

Cerasus (セラスス, Serasusu) is the main setting and a location in DARLING in the FRANXX. Also known as the Thirteenth Plantation (Plantation 13).


Everything in the section of the plantation that the parasites reside is arranged to assist with their numbers, so that they can maintain their connections. The rooms and everything else are arranged in order and with structure.

In Episode 01, it came under attack by a Mohorovic-Class Klaxosaur, which was neutralized by Strelizia shortly after. However, the damage resulted in the magma energy stockpile to plummet and thus the plantation was set to meet with Plantation 26 to refill its energy stockpile, in an exchange called "kissing".

In Episode 15, Cerasus was pried open by the Super Lehmann-Class Klaxosaur, pouring thousands of smaller Klaxosaurs in the city. Later, after Gran Crevasse was freed by Strelizia, a giant Klaxosaur arm came from Gran Crevasse and slammed downwards around the plantation, taking the core of the Super Lehmann-Class Klaxosaur and leaving marks on the ground. Mistilteinn was still intact, with some life growing on it.

In Episode 16, after Gran Crevasse was taken by APE, Cerasus was left ruined. Squad 13 lived their days in Mistilteinn until Papa ordered the 9's to come for them.

In Episode 22, Mistilteinn and the remains of Cerasus were seen via satellite camera after the Klaxosaur Mothership was spotted, where plant life was rapidly growing.

In Episode 24, the parasites returned to Mistilteinn to find any plants and materials needed to survive. They were amazed to find that all plant life was still thriving and used it to harvest crops.

Plantation: Inner City

Every plantation houses a city inside. Plantation 13 is no different. Access is restricted in this area. Only those with a proper ID card can go in and out without any problem. Its Adult population resides in tall glittering skyscrapers at all times and rarely walks outside. Zero Two always referred to it as a lifeless city. It was further explored when Zorome fell on his head in episode 10.

Conference Room

It is unknown where this room is located (possibly in Mistilteinn), though it is somewhere in Plantation 13.



The wall is equipped with canons to defend against Klaxosaur.
