About Blood Lad Manga Omnibus Volume 1

Blood Lad volume 1 collects volumes 1-2 in an omnibus format and features story and art by Yuuki Kodama.

The vampire Staz is one of the most powerful district bosses in the demon world, fending off everyone who dares challenge him, but secretly, the fearsome Staz is obsessed with human culture, especially video games, manga, and everything that comes from Japan! When a Japanese girl wanders into the demon world, Staz can't wait to meet the human and learn everything he can about her world.

Unfortunately, before he's able to ask her anything, the girl is killed by one of his would-be usurpers, leaving just her bare soul behind. Staz vows to help the girl restore her body and return to her former life - especially since it means taking a trip to the human world himself!

A Great Recap

by -

After watching the anime I was at a loss because of the lingering cliffhanger. I thought the manga would help remedy that as well as bring something new to the table. On the plus side the anime was true to form on everything in the manga. This omnibus compilation describes everything that happens about halfway through the anime series. On the downside nothing new and exciting was presented (except for the side story about the Third Eye café). My only hope is that the manga series itself allows for a better conclusion than the anime offered.

Funny manga with an interesting story

by

This manga is not for someone who's just starting to get into anime. It's packed full of amusingly censored references that gives the reader a feeling of nostalgia.
The main character is a huge Otaku (anime fan) who finds himself attracted to this human girl from japan. He's a super powerful vampire who's had his powers sealed away but once they're released he becomes overpowered. He fights with stolen moves (example Kamehameha) and makes funny comments about things we've all wondered (why don't people attack while their opponent is powering up?).
All in all a great read. Only problem is the forced romance that doesn't really fit in. They changed a whole character just so that the main love interest has a rival...

Not a manga for people just getting into anime.
This manga is packed full of great anime references that will give anime fans a feeling of nostalgia. The main character is a huge Otaku that has found himself attracted to a human girl from japan. He himself is a super overpowered vampire who fights with stolen moves (example Kamehameha) that have been hilariously censored to avoid copyright. He comments on funny things we've all wondered (why don't people attack their opponent while they're powering up?).
My only problem is the forced romance. They completely changed a character to give the main love interest a rival...
