Kadokawa's official anime YouTube channel today released a 100-second anime PV for the final 17th volume of Yuuki Kodama's vampire-themed action comedy manga series Blood Lad. Yuta Takamura (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable episode director) directed the clip for NAZ (Hamatora).
This weekend, Yuuki Kodama wrapped up 2009 supernatural action-comedy Blood Lad in the October issue of manga magazine Young Ace. Following the release, Kodama took to Twitter to say he hoped fans enjoyed the ride, and be patient for news of a follow-up, along with sharing the art for the series final pin-up. Get a look after the jump.
It's a busy couple of days for horror action character birthdays. The Twitter account for Seraph of the End notes that November 22nd was Shinya Hīragi's birthday, immediately followed by Yoichi Saotome on the 23rd. Blood Lad author Yuuki Kodama also posted a sketch for the birthday of series star Staz Charlie Blood. Get a look after the jump.
Perhaps inspired by the 26th anniversary of Ranma 1/2's TV debut on April 15th, or perhaps because he's just been feeling the same nostalgia as Squid Girl author Masahiro Anbe, Blood Lad author and Hamatora original character designer Yuuki Kodama has begun playing around with sketching Ranma 1/2's transformations. Check out the results after the jump.
As the series celebrates 1.8 million in print, the 13th volume of Blood Lad is being released on March 4th. Author Yuuki Kodama has joined the fun by sharing great homage art on Twitter. Get a look after the jump.
