Tsukasa, a college student, is rescued from an attack by a devil, one of many vampires that can blend in among the human population. Anzai, her savior, is a half-devil who exploits his supernatural gifts as a member of a shadowy police task force that specializes in devil-related crime in Tokyo. As Anzai continues to keep guard over Tsukasa, the two quickly forge a tentative bond—one that Anzai fears will test his iron-clad rule of never drinking human blood...

Yoshinobu Tokumoto (Nagasarete Airantou, Amanchu! unit director) is directing the anime at Platinum Vision, with Hideaki Nakano (Aoharu x Machinegun, Servamp) as assistant director. Kenji Konuta (Aoharu x Machinegun, Servamp), Ayumu Hisao (Gekijōban Servamp: Alice in the Garden) are credited for series composition and scripts. Senri Kawaguchi is drawing the character designs, and is also credited for chief animation director alongside Toshimitsu Kobayashi. Yasuhiro Saiki is the action animation director.
