HIDIVE Acquires ‘The Vexations of a Shut-In Vampire Princess’

The animated fantasy comedy series follows blundering and magically-inept vampire Komari after her appointment as a Commander in the Mulnite Imperial Army; coming to the platform next month.

HIDIVE has just announced its acquisition of The Vexations of a Shut-In Vampire Princess. Based on the popular shōnen light novel series of the same name by writer Kotei Kobayashi and illustrator Riichu, the new animated fantasy comedy series will simulcast exclusively on HIDIVE this October.

In the series, three years into her life as a shut-in, vampire Terakomari Gandesblood (Komari for short), awakens to find she's a new Commander in the Mulnite Imperial Army, and 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?

The Vexations of a Shut-In Vampire Princess stars Tomori Kusunoki as Terakomari Gandesblood, Sayumi Suzushiro as Villhaze, and Yōko Hikasa as Karen Helvetius. The series is produced by project No. 9, directed by Tatsuma Minamikawa and written by Keiichirō Ōchi.

“We’re thrilled to have acquired The Vexations of a Shut-In Vampire Princess as a HIDIVE exclusive simulcast series,” said John Ledford, HIDIVE, President. “This new series joins our exciting Fall 2023 Season line-up and will definitely be a blood-sucking good time for both vampire and comedy fans alike!”
