posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The Servamp Festival announced on Sunday that a new project is in the works for the Servamp television anime. Voice actor Ryohei Kimura reported after the event that a new anime project was announced. Frontier Works and Kadokawa will release Sunday's event on DVD on June 28.
The Servamp television anime premiered last July, and FUnimation streamed the series as it aired in Japan with English subtitles and an English dub. The anime adapts Strike Tanaka's manga of the same name, which Seven Seas Entertainment publishes in North America.
Funimation describes the story:
Mahiru Shirota dislikes difficult things, preferring to live a simple life. But after rescuing a cat he names Kuro, life takes a turn for the complex. Kuro turns out to be a servamp—a servant vampire, named Sleepy Ash and the two form a contract. Kissing his simple life goodbye, Mahiru is pulled into the world of vampires, the seven deadly Servamps, and war. Life couldn't be more complicated!
The anime production reunited the main staff and studio of the Aoharu x Machinegun anime. Itto Sara, who served in a supervisory position in Aoharu x Machinegun, served as chief director for Servamp. Hideaki Nakano directed the anime at Brains Base. Kenji Konuta was in charge of series composition, and Junko Yamanaka designed the characters for animation.
Tanaka launched the series in Monthly Comic Gene in 2011, and Kadokawa published the manga's 10th compiled book volume last July. Seven Seas published the manga's eighth volume in December. The manga has been on hiatus since last month due to health reasons for the author.
