The manga creator team CLAMP is developing the story and original character designs based on Production I.G's Blood: The Last Vampire film. Tsutomu Mizushima (XXXHOLiC) is directing the project with creative supervision by Blood: The Last Vampire planning assistant and Blood+ director Jun'ichi Fujisaku. Nana Mizuki will play the lead role of Saya Kisaragi in the planned television series and movie.
The animated television series will premiere on July 7, and the film will open next year.
The Blood franchise began with Hiroyuki Kitakubo's Blood: The Last Vampire, in which Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell, The Sky Crawlers), and Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Eden of the East) created the story and screenplay. The film inspired Jun'ichi Fujisaku's Blood+ television series, Chris Nahon's live-action film remake, and several manga spinoffs.
