It was revealed on the latest cover of Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Gene magazine that vampire shoujo manga Servamp will be getting an anime adaptation. The series is both written and illustrated by Strike Tanaka and began publishing in June 2011. It is serialized in Comic Gene magazine and has seven volumes, six side-stories, and three drama CDs as of July 2015.

Synopsis
The story revolves around a 16-year-old boy (15 at the beginning of the story) named Mahiru Shirota who likes simple things and dislikes difficult things. One day, he picks up a stray black cat he finds in the middle of the road and gives it the name Kuro (which literally translates into "black"). From this moment on, a contract between the servamp Sleepy Ash and Mahiru is formed, and Mahiru is pulled into the Servamp war between the seven deadly Servamps and their eighth sibling Tsubaki.

Vampire + Shoujo... hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

What happened last time we got this mixture *cough cough* DIABOLIK FUCKING LOVERS *cough cough*

Not to say that this would likely compare to the atrocity of that series, I'm still skeptical of this combination.

I HATE vampires too but i needed something to read so i read this manga and OMG your hate for vamps will dim because this isn't just some normal vampire story this is totally different and it looks shounen ai but its not really. I recommend this anime/manga for anyone who likes anime! ;)

I'm glad that they are the same as Drama CDs.

Edit: I just realized, except for Shimono-san, rest of the casts so far are G.Addict minus 1!

Same, buddy.

Anyways, a friend of mine recommended the Servamp manga to me a long time ago, but I never did get around to reading it, so I'll probably watch the anime first instead when it airs. It sounds fun enough for me, at least, so.

I've only read the first volume of Servamp. It was okay. I wonder how the anime will adapt the series.
