Synopsis

10,000 years in the future, the world has become a very different place; monsters roam the land freely, and people, although equiped with high tech weapons and cybernetic horses, live a humble life more suited to centuries past. The story focuses on a small hamlet plagued by monster attacks and living under the shadow of rule by Count Magnus Lee, a powerful vampire lord who has ruled the land for thousands of years. When a young girl is bitten by the Count and chosen as his current plaything, she seeks out help of a quiet wandering stranger, D. It so happens that D is one of the world`s best vampire hunters, and he takes it upon himself to cut through Magnus Lee`s many minions, and put an end to the Count`s rule.

Vampire Hunter D is part of my collection and is also one of my favorites. (I’d go with VHD1: 9.1 VHD2 9.0 for those wondering). The main character, Vampire Hunter D, highlights and stars in this 1985 classic that is set thousands of years in the future where Vampires once ruled man, but now are being slowly erased.

The animation is done with very dark brooding colors. Backgrounds in many scenes are just black. The characters even sometimes don dark apparel in the blackness making where you watch it so important if you want to see the 80s anime artwork and read more

Recommendations

Both are anime feature powerful vampires (D is technically a Dunpeal), that hunt other vampires and other supernatural nasties! The sequel "Bloodlust" is great as well!
Both are scary as hell, violent, and considered as cult movies from WAY BACK that seems totally forgotten in anime these days!
