The Warner Brothers Japan booth at this weekend's Comic Market 94 will hand out paper fans with this key visual. The booth will also sell a set with a T-shirt and clear file folder.
Hideyo Yamamoto is returning to direct at Silver Link. and Connect. Hiroyuki Yoshino is again supervising and writing the series scripts, and Keiichi Sano is returning to design the characters.
The season will cover up to volume 17 of Gakuto Mikumo's original light novel series, as well as the end of the "Holy War" (Seisen) arc.
The school action fantasy story of Strike The Blood begins with Kojō Akatsuki, a boy deemed the "fourth progenitor" — the world's most powerful vampire, once thought to only exist in legend and lore. In the Itogamijima special zone for demons, a girl named Yukina Himeragi is entrusted with watching over the vampire and if needed, hunting him down.
Gakuto Mikumo's original novel series inspired a 24-episode television anime series in 2013, as well as two earlier OVA seasons in 2015 and 2016-2017. Crunchyroll streamed the television anime series as it aired in Japan. Discotek licensed the television anime for North American home video.
