Crunchyroll announced during its Anime Expo panel on Saturday that it will stream Delico's Nursery, a television anime based on Kenichi Suemitsu's TRUMP 2009 stage play, starting on August 7.

The anime's debut on August 7 is a delay from its originally planned July debut. The channels will instead air four special programs for the anime once a week starting on July 10. The first three special programs will highlight the franchise's stage play series, and the fourth program will feature a discussion with the anime's cast.

The anime stars:

Hiroshi Nishikiori (A Certain Magical Index, Azumanga Daioh) is directing the anime at J.C. Staff. Suemitsu is in charge of the scripts and series composition, in addition to being credited for the original work. Yōko Itō (Amanchu!, Golden Time) is serving as chief animation director and is also designing the characters based on original designs by Kо̄ya. Shunsuke Wada (Demon Slayer, My Hero Academia, Naruto stage plays) is composing the music.

Mika Nakashima will perform the opening theme song "Unfair," and Anonymouz will perform the ending theme song "Prayer."

A previous video described the show's story:

In the past, the vampire race that ruled over the land had the power of immortality. In the present day, this power has been lost and the world has been divided into two groups: the now-mortal vampire race and the human race that coincides with their limited life-span. However, it is said that somewhere in this world exists one sole Vampire that still has eternal life. TRUE OF VAMP: The originator of Vamps. Connecting the first and last letters, people called the origins of the vampire race "TRUMP."

The gothic fantasy takes place in a world of vampires raised as nobles. The legendary original vampire TRUMP is believed to have eternal life. The anime follows Dali Delico, the head of one of the most prestigious aristocratic families.

Suemitsu's original stage play opened in Japan in 2009. The play has since inspired other plays, short stories, and concerts. Suemitsu and Hamaguri debuted the TRUMP manga based on the play in Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine in November 2020. The manga ended in its fifth compiled book volume on February 2. Hamaguri had planned to launch a prequel manga titled Cocoon this spring, but is delaying the debut due to their poor health.
