Other characters include Sati, a Cyclops who runs the Café Third Eye and cooks Staz’s favorite food. Blood is Staz’s elder brother whose elegance set them apart; he is an elite but crafty vampire who knows a secret about his brother’s power. Deck is Staz’s second in command officer, fierce in appearance yet is quite gentle in manners. Liz is Staz’s younger sister who loves wearing a mask. She is the warden of the underworld’s largest prison. Mimic Yoshida admires Staz greatly, and mimics Staz’s appearance whenever he’s out on his turf.
Blood Lad is a dark comedy following the exploits of a vampire named Staz, who had his figurative heart stolen by a human girl named Fuyumi. Unfortunately, Fuyumi dies, and Staz tries to bring her back to life. Shigeyuki Maya will direct the anime production at Base Brains.
