Animation studios SILVER LINK (Penguindrum, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya, WATAMOTE) and CONNECT (in-between animation for Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S, Sword Art Online) are animating the project. Hideyo Yamamoto (The Prince of Tennis II) is directing, and Hiroyuki Yoshino (Guilty Crown, Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic) is handling the scripts. Keiichi Sano (Heaven's Memo Pad, Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru: Futari no Elder) is designing the characters.
The school action fantasy story of Strike the Blood revolves around Kojō Akatsuki, a boy deemed the world's most powerful vampire (once thought to only exist in legend and lore), and Yukina Hirameki, a girl entrusted with watching over the vampire and if needed, hunting him down.
The anime will premiere on Japanese television in October.
