Strike Tanaka's Servamp Manga Gets Anime Film

Vampire series inspired TV anime in 2016

Retailer Rakuten's listing for the December issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Gene magazine features a cover image that reveals Strike Tanaka's Servamp manga is getting an anime film adaptation. The issue will ship on Wednesday.

The magazine's November issue had revealed in October that the series would have a "big announcement" in the upcoming issue. The Servamp Festival event also announced in February that a new project was in the works for the anime.

Seven Seas Entertainment publishes the manga in North America, and it describes the manga:

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, and Kadokawa published the manga's 10th compiled book volume last July. The 11th volume is slated to ship on December 27. Seven Seas published the manga's 10th volume in August. The manga resumed in April after an announced hiatus in January due to pain in Tanaka's intervertebral disk and shoulder. Tanaka has since recovered.

The manga inspired a television anime in July 2016, and Funimation streamed the series with English subtitles and an English dub. Crunchyroll began streaming the series in October.
