The Blood Lad dark comedy anime adapts Yūki Kodama's manga that follows a vampire named Staz who has his figurative heart stolen by Fuyumi, a human high school girl who suddenly appears in his world. Unfortunately, she is just as suddenly killed, and thus she becomes a ghost. Staz tries to bring Fuyumi back to life.
Viz Media announced its license of Blood Lad last July, when the series premiered. The distributor streamed English-subtitled episodes on its website and on Hulu. Viz Media's license includes home media, download-to-own, and streaming rights, and the company plans to release the series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD this year.
