The original The Vexations of a Shut-In Vampire Princess light novels are written by Kotei Kobayashi, illustrated by riichu, and published in Japan by SB Creative under their GA Bunko imprint. Yen Press publishes an English language version of the series, and describes the story as follows:
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?
The Vexations of a Shut-In Vampire Princess TV anime is directed by Tatsuma Minamikawa and features animation production by project No.9. The series is scheduled to broadcast in Japan beginning in October of 2023.
