I’m not sure what to make of the trailer for The Vexations of a Shut-In Vampire Princess, even with English subtitles available by toggling the caption button on YouTube.
I did read the bit about hundreds of people fighting in the Entertainment Wars, which caught my attention. Surely that would make any vampire overlord commanding their troops firmly in the role of villain?
The light novels on which the show is based are written by Kotei Kobayashi and illustrated by riichu. Yen Press have English language rights and describes the Shut-In Vampire as;
A homebody’s worst nightmare!
Three years into her life as a shut-in, vampire Terakomari Gandesblood (Komari for short), awakens to find she’s been appointed as a Commander in the Mulnite Imperial Army! The thing is, her new unit consists solely of belligerent ruffians who revolt against their superiors at the slightest hint of weakness. Although Komari hails from a line of vampires as powerful as they are prestigious, her refusal to drink blood has made her the picture of mediocrity—scrawny, un-coordinated, and inept at magic. With the odds stacked against her, will the help of her trusty (and slightly infatuated) maid Vill be enough for this recluse to blunder her way to success? Or will Komari rue the day she ever left the safety of her room?
Project No 9’s series is due to hit TV screens in Japan in October.
