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 of the same type and becomes a wandering ghost. The disappointed Staz vows to Fuyumi that he will find a way to bring her back to life.

Vampires in popular media is not anything new. However, in recent years there has been an influx of vampires in literature, movies, TV Shows, and yes, even anime. Which brings me to Blood Lad. An anime that, for all intents and purposes, plays like a pretty ordinary shounen series with one thing used to set itself apart from the rest: (yes! you guessed it!) its use of vampires (and werewolves). So does this blend of genres make for a good pairing or is it just another toothless endeavour... See what I did there.

The story of Blood Lad follows Staz... actually, the main story is 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.

Ok, time to make my review of this 10 episode anime thing....then again, I think I should just quit beating around the bush and state by ratings for each of this anime's category.


Story: mediocre 5.

Ok, so vampires plots are overrated, and this anime follow the same path as that of the main character which has some similarities from "Hataraku Maou-sama" which is about a underworld big boss who doesn't wanna be a big boss anymore and desires a simple life in another place, in fact the plot is almost the same as the mentioned anime. Only the execution is different and it is almost ( read more

"Every vampire fiction reinvents vampires to its own needs. You take what you want."

When and why did vampires become so popular in the past few years? The only conclusion that I could really come to was the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. It's the series that sucked the blood (and money for that matter) out of adolescent girls everywhere. Why? Somewhere along the line I think our society forgot what vampires are supposed to be. The premise of ‘Vampires’ were originally made to be terrifying beings that were both intimidating and powerful. If you don't know what I'm talking about regarding what a vampire read more

Recommendations

Anime: Soul Eater
- Both have a Halloween-like theme to it filled with supernatural creatures galore.
- Both are shonen fighting anime.
- Fanservice galore in both
- Similar humor
- Soul and Staz both have really similar personalities
- The art style to Blood Lad is strikingly similar to Soul Eater's in a way. I actually believed that both of them were by the same creator when I first saw Blood Lad! So if you like the art style in one then you might really like the other.

Anime: Noragami
Both anime are about a girl who can turn into a ghost (but in Noragami it isn't as permanent). The main male character is helping the girl out to turn back to normal.

Anime: Hataraku Maou-sama!

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 ..

Anime: Ao no Exorcist
In both series, there is a supernatural setting where there are beings that are otherworldly. Additionally, the main male protagonist are hotheaded and are not human themselves.

There is a lot of humor in both series although Blood Lad also has more fan service and even a little romance. However, they both have the fact that the main male protagonist is not human and possesses similar personalities. Both shows also gives similar vibes in regards to its atmosphere.

Anime: Strike the Blood
Both have a powerful vampire main character that lives in a demon city.
Also both contain some comedy.

Anime: Sankarea
If you're fan of comedy involving supernatural beings or certain day when a normal character becomes abnormal, then Sankarea and Blood Lad are two series that should be worth a try.

They both involve the concept in which a normal character who recently died returns to life but no longer are the same as they are before. They must adjust to their new living conditions and often faces new strange twists with the "life" they live now.

Both series has a lot of comedy and fun dialogues. The character interactions are also amusing to watch. At the same time, expect little bits of  read more
