Synopsis

Staz is the vampire boss of a section of the demon world, but he has little interest in human blood. He's more infatuated with Japanese culture. When he learns that Yanagi Fuyumi, a Japanese teenage girl, accidentally wanders into the demon city, he jumps to the occasion. However, while Staz deals with an intruder on his turf, the oblivious Fuyumi is killed by a monster and becomes a wandering ghost. The disappointed Staz vows to her that he will find a way to bring Fuyumi back to life.

Blood Lad is an intriguing comedy/supernatural anime that is one of the best, if not the best of the Summer 2013 season. I've been looking forward to every new episode, and it's been very enjoyable so far.

First and foremost, the show is very entertaining. I've definitely had my share of laughs, as Blood Lad definitely qualifies as a solid comedy. It brings to the table a helping of exciting moments that take you to the edge of your seat, but also a bunch of weird situations too.

The story is basically about a vampire who wants to resurrect a human girl who died read more

Blood Lad is a classic example of taking a typical genre type and applying a currently popular twist on it; in this case you end up with yet another supernatural comedy Most titles that fall under this category are barely passable, but Blood Lad seemed to stand out from the rest of the crowd so I gave it a chance. I mean a vampire boss that is more interested in the otaku culture of Japan over fresh human blood… that doesn’t sound too unoriginal and downright unbearable, right? Well I’m going to tell you why I was neither right nor wrong in Blood Lad’s case.

both main leads are very powerful demons

both are your typical shounen leads they're even voiced by the same seiyuu

the comedy is kinda and overall setting is kinda similar

in both, there is a small romantic subplot that doesn't really go anywhere ..
The concepts of demons and souls are bought together in both Soul Eater and Blood Lad. Their worlds contrasts with the law of nature along with the modern world.

The main male protagonist from both series are hot headed but does care about his friends and companion. The main female characters contrasts quite a bit from both series but do also play some pivotal roles in the stories. They often encourage their companion to believe in themselves at what they do.

Both series has a lot of comedy and strange gags. This is presented in more of a lighthearted tone that occurs out of random sometimes. Additionally, expect some action as there are conflicts in involved from both worlds.
