Vampire Dormitory will adapt a manga written and illustrated by Ema Toyama. The manga has been serialized since November 2018 in Kodansha’s shoujo manga magazine Nakayoshi. An anime adaptation by Studio Blanc was announced in October 2023. The anime premieres in April 2024. Watch the second teaser PV here:
Kodansha USA is licensing the manga in English and describes the story as:
“I’ll do it! I’ll become your thrall!” A crossdressing 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!
