posted on by Alex Mateo
Series premieres on October 7

HIDIVE announced on Wednesday that it has licensed the television anime adaptation of Kotei Kobayashi's The Vexations of a Shut-In Vampire Princess (Hikikomari Kyūketsuki no Monmon) light novels, and it will stream the series for the fall 2023 season.

The anime will premiere on October 7 on Tokyo MX and BS-NTV.

The anime stars:

Tatsuma Minamikawa (Wave, Listen to Me!, Fire Force) is directing the series at project No.9. Keiichirō Ōchi (The Quintessential Quintuplets, The Demon Girl Next Door) is handling series composition. Tomoyuki Shimoya (Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma) is designing the characters. Gō Shiina (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba) is composing the music.

fripSide will perform the anime's opening theme song "Red Liberation," and MIMiNARI will perform the ending theme song "Nemurenai feat. Kusunoki Tomori."

Yen Press licensed the novels, and it describes the story:

Shut-in vampire Terakomari, or Komari for short, awakens from her slumber to find she's been promoted to a commander of the army! The thing is, though, her new squad has a reputation for being violently insubordinate. And although Komari was born to a prestigious vampire family, her hatred of blood has made her the picture of mediocrity-scrawny, uncoordinated, and inept at magic. With the odds stacked against her, will the help of her trusty maid be enough for this recluse to blunder her way to success?

SB Creative Corp. began publishing the novels with illustrations by riichu in January 2020. riichu launched a manga adaptation in Square Enix's Big Gangan magazine in December 2021.
