HIDIVE is streaming The Vexations of a Shut-In Vampire Princess and describes the story as follows:
Three years of her life As a captive vampire, Terakomari Gandesblood (Komari for short), awakens to find she has been appointed Commander in the Mulnite Royal Army! The problem is, her new unit consists only of aggressive thugs who rebel against their superiors at the slightest hint of weakness. Although Komari comes from a powerful line of vampires, her refusal to drink blood has left her a picture of mediocrity—scrawny, uncoordinated, and inept at magic. With the odds stacked against her, will the help of her trusty (and slightly infatuated) maid Vill be enough to make this recluse make a mistake on her path to success? Or will Komari regret the day she left the safety of her room?
