Blood Lad Vampire Comedy Manga Ends in September

Manga inspired TV anime in 2013; Yen Press publishes manga in N. America

The September issue of Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine is revealing on Thursday that Yūki Kodama will end his Blood Lad manga in the magazine's next issue, which Kadokawa will publish on September 4.

Yen Press publishes the manga in North America, and it describes the manga's story:

The vampire Staz is one of the most powerful district bosses in the demon world, fending off everyone who dares challenge him, but secretly, the fearsome Staz is obsessed with human culture, especially video games, manga, and everything that comes from Japan! When a Japanese girl wanders into the demon world, Staz can't wait to meet the human and learn everything he can about her world.

Unfortunately, before he's able to ask her anything, the girl is killed by one of his would-be usurpers, leaving just her bare soul behind. Staz vows to help the girl restore her body and return to her former life - especially since it means taking a trip to the human world himself!

Kodama launched the vampire comedy manga series in Young Ace in 2009. Kadokawa published the manga's 16th compiled book volume on June 30. Yen Press published the seventh volume in North America on February 23. Yen Press also published the spinoff manga Bloody Brat.

The manga inspired a 10-episode television anime adaptation, which premiered in 2013. Viz Media streamed the series on Hulu as it aired in Japan, and released it on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in September 2014.
