Synopsis

The vampire Staz is one of the most powerful district bosses in the demon world, fending off everyone who dares challenge him. But secretly, the fearsome Staz is obsessed with human culture, especially video games, manga, and everything that comes from Japan! When a Japanese girl wanders into the demon world, Staz can't wait to meet the human and learn everything he can about her world. Unfortunately, before he's able to ask her anything, the girl is killed by one of his would-be usurpers, leaving just her bare soul behind. Staz vows to help the girl restore her body and return to her former life—especially since it means taking a trip to the human world himself!

Story: One might think when coming across this manga that this is just another vampire manga, but in actuality it isn't. How? Well, when I first looked at this manga I thought, "oh great another vampire story zzz probably full of ecchi scenes since this big-boobed girl is with this male protagonist and full of violence. Also since there's a human before him he's obviously going to go having scenes of sucking her neck all the time right?" (kinda over dramatized my first impressions) Anyway, I was however proven wrong, which I'm very thankful for. Like the summary read more

Story : 7
Art : 8
Character : 7
Overall : 7.5

The story stars off simple enough,with the male protagonist,which is Staz, an otaku vampire who is a boss in the underworld, found a human girl, Fuyumi who has fallen into his territory. Fuyumi was then eaten by a monster and somehow turned into a ghost. Staz must now find a way to turn Fuyumi back to normal and send her back to the human world.

It's a typical shounen type manga,with the main character being overly powerful and getting even more powerful later in the story. The story isn't all that original but it is enjoyable and fun read more

Still a better love story then twilight.

When I saw Blood Lad, it looked extremely interesting. The art was different from many mangakas that I've seen so far, the plot looked creative but not dangerously and recklessly so, and it had a score of 8/10 along with some good reviews. . . so I decided to read it, and now I'm hooked.
While reading Blood Lad, please toss out any labels of vampires you have of dark, gloomy, reclusive creatures that just happened to be extremely handsome- none of that here. (Although I'm not saying Staz isn't attractive. . . he is, but just not in read more

I am reading this manga after watching the movie "twilight" (on my friend's request). When i read the summary, i went "wtf..more Vamps?" But i could put up through the whole movie so i thought that a manga couldn't do any worse, but poof! It turned out to be exactly what i did not expect! :D
Its a nice manga with great artwork, a bit shaky-waky story which is compensated by the comical scenes; has the typical character line, and does not bore you at all! :D
A recommended read to anyone who is bored of Twilight, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn, blah blah blah!

Blood Lad reminds me of Ao no Exorcist ALOT, the main guy Staz looks similar to Rin Okumura from ANE plus they are both demons.
Has the same feel to it. The characters aren't really weak to begin with; Blood Lad being boss of the area and Soul+Maka and the rest being all top of the class. Same art too (from my view), except for the obvious trademarks to each.
Through its characters and narrative, both these serialisations explore concepts of living and dying. Sankarea explores life and death in a more in-depth manner; whereas Blood Lad only uses it to serve context for its story.
Both have a girl who lose her body and became a ghost and a supernatural guy who helps her.
A humorous supernatural story with unwitting humans winding up involved with hell and demons.
Both follow male protagonists who wish to protect and aid the female protagonist from their own demise. The female characters are cursed in a way. In Magico, the curse is related to a powerful and dormant power; whereas in Blood Lad, the curse is related to a lost connection from the human living world.
