Today is the day! Blood Lad ( the anime ) is finally out in stores.
For the uninitiated, Blood Lad is the anime adaptation of the hit manga Blood Lad by Yuuki Kodama . If the bold caution-tape-esque cover didn’t catch your eye Staz’s sharp-toothed “grin” will pull you in. The Blood Lad anime brings you through the first volumes of manga for a roller-coaster ride of otaku inside jokes and over the top action. I dare you too not watch it twice and see what new things you can find in the background.

The Blood Lad story…
Werewolves, zombies, and even the Abominable Snowman fight day and night for the title of Territory Boss. The vampire Staz, however, finds the whole thing to be a serious pain. He spends his time watching anime, playing video games, and daydreaming about going to the Human World. That all changes when he meets Fuyumi, a human girl who instantly win’s Staz’s heart, and who then loses her life to a man-eating plant. Refusing to give up on the girl of his dreams, Staz travels across the Demon and Human Worlds in search of a way to bring Fuyumi back to life by any bloody means necessary.
