Analyzing the numbers, it wouldn't be strange to believe that 'Blood Lad' indeed performed extremely well and scored high overall; hence giving another reason for producers to consider making the second part.
Blood Lad, which is also known as Buraddo Raddo in Japanese, is one of those anime television series that has left fans waiting for the longest of time, despite being one of the best in its genre. The dark comedy fantasy anime television series is based on a manga series of the same name and is written and illustrated by Yuuki Kodama. The manga series was published for the first time on September 4, 2009, and the series had a total of 17 volumes that went on till September 3, 2016. Soon the manga was picked up to be made into an anime television series, and season 1 of 'Blood Lad' aired for the first time on July 8, 2013. The show was a big success after season 1, and there was an original video animation (OVA) episode released on December 4, 2013, that left fans asking for season 2.
Fans are now waiting for season 2 of 'Blood Lad,' and here is everything we know about whether or not there will be season 2 of this brilliant show.
The first season was released on July 8, 2013, and ran till September 9 of the same year. After season 1 got over, an OVA episode titled 'Blood Lad: Wagahai wa Neko de wa Nai' got released on December 3, 2013. Even though eight years have passed, fans do not want to give up hope for the second season, even after knowing that it takes five years maximum for a show to get renewed, and it has already been eight years since it came for the first time.
However, no matter how slim the chances of having a second season look, there are some aspects we need to consider to not entirely give up the hope for its renewal. Starting with the first point, it is important to note that the original manga series contains seventeen volumes with 85 chapters. In contrast, the TV adaptation has used only ten episodes + OVA. Clearly, there is enough source material for the television adaptation. Unfortunately, the manga ended in December 2016. Even then, we can hope for Brain's Base to pick one more season of the series. The second possibility is how the first season performed in terms of numbers.
The anime television series scored 7.28/10 from 323,206 votes on MyAnimeList, whereas it got the rating of 7.2/10 from 1961 votes on IMDb. Analyzing the numbers, it wouldn't be strange to believe that 'Blood Lad' indeed performed exceptionally well and scored high overall, giving another reason for producers to consider making the second part.
For those who haven't watched the first season, 'Blood Lad' is about the surreal world where demons live, and the story revolves around Staz Charlie Blood, who is a Vampire. Staz is not the usual kind of vampire who drinks human blood like his ancestors and lives a life of a typical 'Otaku.' In Japanese, the term refers to someone who is obsessed with Anime, Manga, and hi-tech gadgets. Staz is the leader and one of the bosses of the gangs, which are various demon gangs in this world. One day, by accident, a girl named Fuyumi Yanagi, who was a human, accidentally entered the demon world through a portal, making Staz all excited after knowing about the presence of a human being in their world.
They both meet for the very first time but not for very long. Staz was always protecting her from the enemies. However, it wasn't easy for a human to survive in a world of vampires, and therefore, Fuyumi dies after getting eaten up by a carnivorous plant and becomes a Ghost. This was something that left Staz emotionally broken, and therefore, he takes the responsibility to bring her back to life. It is after that Staz and Fuyumi come into the human world where she starts fading away, and therefore, to save her, Staz makes her drink his blood, and she turns into a half-vampire. Staz continues to save her life and bring her back to life by struggling and fighting the demon in the demon world as she keeps fading away. In the end, finally, both of them end up fighting an evil creature who is known as Akim.
