Tsuki to Laika to Nosferatu, also known as Irina the Vampire Cosmonaut on Funimation, where the anime airs weekly, is your go-to if you love vampires, space, alternative history fantasy, and the 60s. Fans of this odd and quirky premise might already be wondering how many episodes we can expect for Season 1 of Tsuki to Laika to Nosferatu. Here's everything we know so far.
Tsuki to Laika to Nosferatu : What Is It About?
Irina the Vampire Cosmonaut is a show that can hold its own if you enjoy this sort of premise. But if you missed it amongst more popular works, here's a short overview:
In an alternative history setting that mirrors the Cold War, two major world powers, the Zirnitra Union and the United Kingdom of Arnack are fighting for expansion that is not limited on earth. Following the transportation of a dog to the moon, Zirnitra decides to kick off the Nosferatu project.
This project is soon revealed to involve sending Irina, a young vampire woman into space, to ensure that, eventually, they'll be able to send a human to the moon before their enemies do. Irina, is unlike the vampires people used to fear in the 60s; she doesn't drink blood and she isn't violent. The fascination with the moon, though, is still very real, and it's not often that we see this exploited to actually send the vampire into space.
Trained by Lev, a demoted young official who is also fascinated with space, Irina resolves to succeed in herm mission, no matter the cost.
How Many Episodes Will Season 1 of Tsuki to Laika to Nosferatu Have?
According to the popular anime database MyAnimeList, Tsuki to Laika to Nosferatu or Irina the Vampire Cosmonaut is going to have 12 episodes. This is the usual episode number for many anime shows, especially those that aren't big names in the world of anime and manga.
Irina's story is based on a light novel series written by Keisuke Makino and illustrated by Karei, and the subsequent manga adaptation by Sojihogu, which is, however, on indefinite hiatus due to the creator's poor health. Both media are currently ongoing, and we don't know when they are going to end. Therefore, 12 episodes are a good cautious number that will cover quite a lot of the story we have so far, potentially also leaving room for more, if there's a demand for it.
Will 12 episodes be enough for Irina to reach the moon? It's probably to early to tell, but we'll soon find the answer.
