“I want to be your minion…!”

A young cross-dressed girl and a vampire’s risky live-in arrangement is on the way!

Mito is left alone in the world after losing her parents and being deserted by her relatives. When she is dismissed from her job at the restaurant where she worked with neither money nor a place to live, she is rescued by a vampire named Ruka. In return for offering her blood as his nourishment, she ends up residing with him in a boy’s dormitory bustling with attractive boys embodying diverse characters… Could it be?!

The anime is being directed by Nobuyoshi Nagayama at Studio Blanc. Known for previously handling projects like Ayaka: A Story of Bonds and Wounds, Happy Sugar Life, and Smile Down the Runway. Touko Machida is in charge of the script, also known for her work on Smile Down the Runway, Fuuka, and Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, while the character designs are crafted by Naomi Tsuruta (second key animator for Pokémon: Paldean Winds).

Ema Toyama, best known for Missions of Love and Aoba-kun’s Confessions, began the creation of the manga in Kodansha’s Nakayoshi magazine in November 2018. After the first chapter ended in July 2022, the manga took a brief break. However, it returned and kicked off its “second part” in December 2022. Kodansha released the 12th compiled volume of the manga on November 13. In addition, Kodansha USA Publishing will be releasing the manga in English and plans to launch the 11th volume on May 21.
