CLAMP's Blood-C to Be Made as Both TV Series & Film

xxxHOLiC's Tsutomu Mizushima directs; Clamp's Nanase Ohkawa co-writes with Jun'ichi Fujisaku

The official website of the Blood-C vampire anime project announced on Saturday that the anime will be made as both a television series this July and a theatrical film next year. As previously revealed, the manga creator team CLAMP is developing the story and original character designs, and Production I.G is handling the animation. Tsutomu Mizushima (xxxHOLiC) is directing the project with creative supervision by Blood: The Last Vampire planning assistant and Blood+ director Jun'ichi Fujisaku

Clamp's Nanase Ohkawa is supervising the scripts and co-writing them with Fujisaku. Kazuchika Kise is adapting Clamp's character designs for animation, and Naoki Satō is composing the music. In addition, Ranmaru Kotone (Diasta of Ultima Thule, Toki wo Kakeru Shōjo: Tokikake-) will adapt the project into a manga, which will launch in the July issue of Shōnen Ace on May 26.

The Blood franchise began with Hiroyuki Kitakubo and Production I.G's Blood: The Last Vampire film, 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.
