A third OVA adaptation for Mikiro Gakumo’s light novel series Strike the Blood has been announced!
The series was first adapted into anime in 2014, and has since then received two OVAs in addition to its 24 TV anime episodes.
A part of the fantasy action genre, Strike the Blood follows the life of Akatsuki Kojou, a high schooler who might just be the one of the most powerful vampires born yet. Luckily for him and those who love harem anime, a lot of his power can be derived from the lovely ladies surrounding him and the awkward situations they end up in!
Staff revealed so far are all those who have worked on the previous anime adaptations, including Yamamoto Hideyo as director, Yoshino Hiroyuki for series composition/script, and Sano Keiichi for character design. Animation studios Silver Link and Connec are also to return.
As for the cast, voice talents for eight characters have been confirmed to reprise their roles, including Hosoya Yoshimasa (Akatsuki Kojou), Taneda Risa (Himeragi Yukina), Seto Asami (Aiba Asagi), Hayama Ikumi (Kirasaka Sayaka), Kanemoto Hisako (Minamiya Natsuki), Osaka Ryouta (Yaze Motoki), Hidaka Rina (Akatsuki Nagisa) and Iguchi Yuka (Asutarute).
