Vampire Dormitory is an ongoing fantasy-romance manga written and illustrated by Ema Toyama that has a total of 12 volumes published. It has been serialized since November 2018 in Kodansha’s Nakayoshi magazine and received an English print release in 2021 under Kodansha USA. The anime adaptation for this series was first announced in October 2023.
Kodansha USA describes the story as:
“I’ll do it! I’ll become your thrall!” A cross-dressing girl and an obsessive vampire find themselves entangled in a dangerous relationship. A heart-pounding BL-esque romance drama from the award-winning Ema Toyama (Missions of Love, Aoba-kun’s Confessions)! Mito, who has no family to rely on, lives on the streets, disguised as a boy. Ruka, a vampire, saves her from a perilous situation and makes her an offer: become his subservient thrall from which he can feed whenever he wants, and she can live with him—in the boys’ dorm. Because her very existence depends on her secret not being found out, every day is a new danger—to say nothing of that vampire! Meanwhile, Ruka, not knowing Mito’s a girl, dotes on her night and day in an attempt to ripen her “disgusting male blood,” but when real feelings develop… this dangerous romance between a crossdressing girl and an obsessive vampire begins!
