The Vexations of a Shut-In Vampire Princess is based on the light novels written by Kotei Kobayashi and illustrated by riichu, which were published by SB Creative. Yen Press describes the plot as follows:
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 light novel series Vexations of a Shut-In Vampire Princess began in 2020 and has 11 volumes as of May 2023. It is distributed by the GA Bunko label. The series has also influenced riichu’s Square Enix-published manga adaptation.
