The "Dengeki Bunko 25th Anniversary & New Work Unveiling Stage" event at Dengeki Game Festival 2018 announced on Saturday that a third Strike The Blood original video anime (OVA) season has been green-lit.

The school action fantasy story of Strike The Blood begins with Kojō Akatsuki (voiced by Yoshimasa Hosoya in the earlier television anime), a boy deemed the "fourth progenitor" — the world's most powerful vampire, once thought to only exist in legend and lore. In the Itogamijima special zone for demons, a girl named Yukina Himeragi (Risa Taneda) is entrusted with watching over the vampire and if needed, hunting him down.

Gakuto Mikumo's original novel series inspired a 24-episode television anime series in 2013, as well as two earlier OVA seasons in 2015 and 2016-2017. Crunchyroll streamed the television anime series as it aired in Japan. Discotek licensed the television anime for North American home video.

Yen Press is publishing the light novel series in North America. TATE has been serializing a manga adaptation in Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh magazine since 2012.
