From studio Arvo Animation (We Never Learn: BOKUBEN, Monster Girl Doctor) and director Akitoshi Yokoyama, this vampiric tale in space features a different take on Earth post-war, where countries are duking it out over who will take to space first. Turns out, the Nosferatu Project may hold the key.

The series stars voice actors Megumi Hayashibara (Neon Genesis Evangelion, Paprika) as Irina, Koki Uchiyama (Banana Fish, My Hero Academia) as Lev, Satoshi Hino (OVERLORD, A Certain Magical Index) as Mikhail and Mikako Komatsu (Jujutsu Kaisen, Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon) as Roza.

Based on the light novel series from Keisuke Masano and Karei, Irina: The Vampire Cosmonaut comes to Funimation this October.
