Season 1 of Blood Lad concluded in 2013 but ever since then there is no update about Blood Lad Season 2. Here we discuss the possibilities of Blood lad Season 2 and what can we expect from it?
First of all I do not understand Japan’s obsession in vampires and afterlife. I have seen a lot of anime and manga series that follows antagonist’s afterlife events.
Blood Lad is another such series but it was widely appreciated due to its unique take on the subject.
Blood Lad circles around the life of Staz Charlie. Staz is a demon vampire and he is king of the eastern side of demon world. Wolf rules the western district of demon world.
Other demon considers him an evil master but Staz is actually a big fan of Japanese anime and manga culture. He spent his time reading his favourite manga series. He often dreams of visiting the human world.
His world turns upside down when a young Japanese girl named Fuyumi travels to Demon world through a portal. Staz takes it under his protection and save her from a demon as well.
However the girl is eventually killed by a carnivorous plant. Her ghost enters the demon world and start fading away. It is revealed that Fuyumi can re-enter the human world alive if she travels through a portal and drink Staz’s blood.
After learning this, Staz pledge to help Fuyumi’s ghost and travel across the demon world to find the portal.
Fuyumi’s Soul often fades and she has to consume blood in order to keep her soul in the demon world. Thus she develops a taste for blood.
This series has many similarities to another Japanese anime series named Noragami.
Blood Lad is based on the Manga series of same name penned by Yuuki Kodama. Yuuki wrote the first volume of Blood Lad Manga in 2009.
It was picked up Brain’s Base for anime series which met critical acclaim in 2013. However the series never saw a second season due to many reasons.
First of all Blood Lad was poorly received in Japan. Season 1 of Blood Lad did exceptionally well in western countries including America and Canada. Thanks to Viz Media’s dubbed version.
There were many rumors circulating online that Blood Lad has been renewed for Season 2 but the truth is that Brain’s Base is hardly thinking about Blood Lad Season 2.
Many fans even signed petition on sites like Myanimelist and Funimation but they should understand that this is not how Japanese anime work.
A Japanese anime production company will only renew its series if it gets popular in Japan. It doesn’t matter if the series gets extremely popular in other countries.
The only thing that fans can do to help in the renewal of series is by buying DVD of Blood Lad Season 1. Of Course DVD and Blu-ray sales will speak numbers to Brain’s Base (Production Company).
If the series do well in DVD sale then only it will be renewed for Season 2.
The manga has a total of 17 volumes which means that the production company has more than enough source material for second season.
Season 1 ended with Staz realizing his full potential which was sealed by his elder brother Braz by shooting him.
A Stand alone episode (OVA) was released in 2013 which showed that how much Fuyumi has become addicted to blood drinking.
She left Staz powerless after she drank a good amount of blood out of his body. She is kidnapped in the episode and later rescued by Staz. The episode ended with Staz and Fuyumi gaining blimp that could help them in portal to the human world.
So what Season 2 of Blood Lad can be about? Season 1 was adapted from several storylines of first five volumes of Manga series.
Blood Lad can be continued with season 2 by adapting next two or three volumes from the manga series.
Let’s hope that DVD and Blu-ray sales of Blood lad rises up and Brain’s Base take it in notice. Blood Lad Season 2 is hanging in middle as of now and we will update this page if the series is ever renewed for a second season.
