Blood Lad  

e060c5a0-aefe-4c45-809e-fa89dba669ce.pngWhere can I watch this: Netflix (Season 1)

Netflix rates this anime G (PG), it’s definitely not suitable for children. The female characters are drawn with certain exaggerated features, which may leave you with the impression that you’re watching the wrong sort of anime and at any moment it may take a bit of a X rated turn.

After getting over the initial shock, Blood Lad is pretty good. It isn’t the usual type of anime I would watch, so I was surprised by how good it was. It’s full of dark humour and if like me, dark humour is your thing, it’ll have you laughing your head off, from the first episode to the last.

82e91f74-4ec9-417c-a3a6-56b02641ff12_1Blood Lad is about a school girl (Fuyumi), who finds herself in the demon world. Staz (a vampire) is obsessed with the human world, so when he finds out Fuyumi (a human) is in the demon word, he quickly becomes obsessed with her and orders his man to bring Fuyumi to him. Shortly after Fuyumi is taken to Staz, she meets a cruel faith and is eaten by a carnivorous flower. Fuyumi sadly dies, but as she is in the demon world, she becomes a ghost. Feeling responsible for Fuyumi death and still very much obsessed with her, Staz promises to find a way to resurrect Fuyumi and make her human again. Staz, Fuyumi and their friends set of on an adventure, full of twist and secret motives, to bring Fuyumi back to life and send her back to the human world.

c14238e1-91a2-4c7b-8702-1ca55890338dBeing only 10 episodes long, Blood Lad is worth a watch. It’s not your usual serious anime, but is more a goofy fun type of anime, making it very easy watch. Perfect for relaxing and winding down after a busy day. It’s only down point is its ending. It leaves a lot of loose ends and unanswered questions. However, its storyline throughout season 1, more than makes up for this. I’m pretty sure these loose ends and unanswered questions were meant to follow through to the second season. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find out much about the second season and as far as I am aware, it is still in the making.

Overall, Blood lad is quite an enjoyable series. I would definitely recommend it to lovers of anime. It’s got action, extreme fight scene and both terrifying and really cute characters. Making it entertaining to most audiences. If you love dark humour, then you’ll really enjoy this short series and find it as amusing as I did.
Rating: 3/5

I couldn’t decide which of my drawing of Liz I liked better, so I included both. One is smoky axes and the other is plain axes.

  1. The female characters have exaggerated features? Do you mean that they have big feet? 🙂

    I doubt this series will get a season two, as it has been several years since it aired. From what I know the manga has finished so you can find out how the story pans out that way.

    • Hahahahaha yeah serious case of clown feet 🙂 All I can say is that, Fuyumi and Bell would be very buoyant, if they fell into the sea 🙂
      I was thinking that, when I was searching for it’s season 2.
      Thanks thats a really good idea 🙂 I was actually checking out the manga the other day. I’m going to take this as a sign to read it. Also, I have the same name, as one of evil characters, that confuses all the fans. 🙂
