North American manga and comics publisher Dark Horse Comics announced on Thursday that it will publish Ryo Haduki's Blood-C: Demonic Moonlight (Blood-C: Izayoi Kitan) prequel manga in North America. The company will publish the first volume on May 11.
Dark Horse describes the manga:
The prequel to the Blood-C saga from CLAMP, Production I.G, and artist Ryo Haduki! In occupied Japan in 1946, an American military investigator is sent to the Yokohama base to research a number of bizarre deaths. He soon discovers that the murderer isn't human! Blood-C: Demonic Moonlight is the prequel fans have been waiting for!
Both Kotone's Blood-C manga and Haduki's Blood-C: Demonic Moonlight are based on CLAMP's Blood-C anime project. The 12-episode television anime premiered in 2011, and Funimation streamed the series as it aired on Niconico, and released the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in 2013. A sequel anime film, Blood-C: The Last Dark, debuted in 2012, and Funimation released the film on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in October 2013.
