Kodansha USA releases Vampire Dormitory in English and describes the synopsis as:

“I’ll do it! I’ll become your thrall!” A crossdressing girl and an obsessive vampire find themselves entangled in a dangerous relationship. A heart-pounding BL-esque romance drama from the award-winning Ema Toyama (Missions of Love, Aoba-kun’s Confessions)!

Mito, who has no family to rely on, lives on the streets, disguised as a boy. Ruka, a vampire, saves her from a perilous situation and makes her an offer: become his subservient thrall from which he can feed whenever he wants, and she can live with him — in the boys’ dorm. Because her very existence depends on her secret not being found out, every day is a new danger — to say nothing of that vampire! Meanwhile, Ruka, not knowing Mito’s a girl, dotes on her night and day in an attempt to ripen her “disgusting male blood,” but when real feelings develop… this dangerous romance between a crossdressing girl and an obsessive vampire begins!
