Additional "Blood Lad" Anime Character Designs Showcased

Horror action series becomes anime in July

Yūki Kodama's horror action manga concerning an otaku vampire and ghost girl, Blood Lad, is set to become a TV anime this summer, with an OVA coming later with volume 10 in December. A bit curiously, we've gotten the staff information and a nice stream of visuals, but have heard nothing about the voice cast. In the latest previews, we see the hero's older brother Brad D Blood and his enforcer, Deku.

He is obsessed with games, anime, manga, anything that is related to Human World. When he sees Fuyumi, he falls in love/bloodlust at first sight and changes his life goal to be friends with her. But just as he gets to know her, she is eaten by carnivorous plant and becomes a ghost. In order to bring her back to life, he will do anything, even becoming her vampire bodyguard.
