Strike Tanaka's Servamp Manga Gets Anime Adaptation

Seven Seas publishes series about high school boy, feline servant vampire in N. America

The cover of the August issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Gene magazine is revealing on Wednesday that Strike Tanaka's Servamp manga is getting an anime adaptation.

Seven Seas is releasing the manga in North America, and it published the second compiled book volume in June. The company describes the story:

When a stray black cat named Kuro crosses Mahiru Shirota's path, the high school freshman's life will never be the same again. Kuro is, in fact, no ordinary feline, but a servamp: a servant vampire. While Mahiru's personal philosophy is one of non-intervention, he soon becomes embroiled in an ancient, altogether surreal conflict between vampires and humans.

Tanaka launched the series in Monthly Comic Gene in 2011. Kadokawa published the seventh compiled volume in Japan in December, and it will ship the eighth compiled volume on July 27.

The manga has previously inspired two drama CDs with the following cast:
