The official Twitter account for the Strike the Blood anime franchise announced on Friday that the release date of the second and final Blu-ray Disc and DVD volume of Strike The Blood FINAL has been pushed back one month from June 29 to July 29 due to "production circumstances."
- The longer I go without hearing Himerai say " No senpai this is our fight!" Before being useless the better I will be -
In addition, a commercial for the second volume was streamed on the anime franchise's official website.
Strike The Blood FINAL is the fifth and final original video anime (OVA) "season" based on Gakuto Mikumo's Strike the Blood light novel series, adapted in four episodes from the 22nd and final main Strike the Blood light novel volume. On March 30, the first two-episode volume was released on Blu-ray Disc and DVD.
Megumi Han joins the cast as Raadorii Ren (Romanized spelling not official), the younger sister of MAR leader Shafrial Ren.
The opening theme song "Akatsuki no Kaleid Blood" is performed by Kishida Kydan & The Akeboshi Rockets. As Yukina Himeragi, Risa Taneda sings the ending theme song "Engagement Yakusoku."
Returning cast and crew members include director Hideyo Yamamoto, scriptwriter Hiroyuki Yoshino, character designer Keiichi Sano (joined by Hideki Furukawa), sound director Jin Aketagawa at Magic Capsule, composer Assumed Sounds, and animation studio CONNECT.
Mikumo's Strike the Blood novel series concluded with the 22nd compiled book volume in August 2020.
The novels debuted in 2011 with illustrations by Manyako. Strike the Blood begins with Koj Akatsuki, a boy deemed the "fourth progenitor" — the world's most powerful vampire, once thought to exist only in legend and lore. A girl named Yukina Himeragi is entrusted with watching over the vampire and, if necessary, hunting it in the Itogamijima special zone for demons.
