Gakuto Mikumo’s light novel series, Strike the Blood, is getting an anime adaptation and the trailer shown during Japan’s Comiket 84 has been posted on the show’s official website. You can check out the video below.
According to the synopsis, a legendary vampire called the Fourth Primogenitor has appeared in Japan accompanied by twelve Kenjuu. To deal with this disaster the government deploys an attack mage known as a Sword Shaman. This mage happens to only be an apprentice girl, Himegari Yukina. With the power of the strongest anti-primogenitor spirit spear, Yukina arrives to confront the phantom.
Animation studios SILVER LINK (Watamote, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya) and CONNECT (in-between animation for Sword Art Online) are handling the project that is due to air in Japan this October in time for the Fall anime season.
