Vampire Comedy Anime Blood Lad's 1st Promo Streamed

posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Dark comedy of vampire who falls in love with human girl, premiering in July

Kadokawa began streaming the first promotional video for the anime adaptation of Yūki Kodama's Blood Lad manga on Saturday. The video features the anime's opening theme song "ViViD" by May'n (Macross Frontier, Ōkami-san & Her Seven Companions).

The dark comedy 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.

Shigeyuki Miya (Lupin III: Green vs Red, Buzzer Beater) will be directing the anime at Brains Base from scripts by Kenji Konuta (Library War, Toshokan Sensō: Kakumei no Tsubasa), and Kenji Fujisaki (chief animation director on Battle Girls - Time Paradox) will be handling the character designs.

The anime will premiere in Japan in July, and the eighth manga volume will arrive on Thursday.

Update: Typo fixed. Thanks, Ginrai1984
