The school action fantasy story of Strike the Blood revolves around Kojō Akatsuki (voiced by Yoshimasa Hosoya), 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 Hirameki (Risa Taneda) is entrusted with watching over the vampire and if needed, hunting him down.

The light novel series already inspired the Strike the Blood television anime series.

The television anime of Gakuto Mikumo's Strike the Blood light novel series premiered in 2013, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. Discotek licensed the television anime for North American home video.
