Dance in the Vampire Bund is no exception if your after a seinen tale of romance, action and most of all the supernatural. Whilst there are common traits to which some may already know as vampire lore, there are also a few changes that give the story some originality and aimed to please any fan of the weird and supernatural.
As you get deeper into the tale you will find there is an underlining to the story of prejudice and betrayal in the vampire world, and that although most vampires may see humans as livestock, there are some who actually reach out in friendship.
If there was any room for complaints or disappointment, it would have to be the artwork. Coming from a creator who is well known for Hentai, I may have have had a little too high of an expectation from his work. Not that I have that much to complain about, but after following the mangakas previous works, I was left pretty impression-less when looking at Nozomu Tamaki's current work.
I have given this manga a 7 for the depth and character development which has transpired so far since chapter 1. I believe there is room for improvement in some departments but all-in-all its a worthwhile read.
I know there have been mixed reviews on the adaptation, but if you liked the anime, then I definitely recommend reading the manga as you will see how the adaptation changes from the anime whilst sticking to the plot giving you a different outlook.
If you'd like a fresh take to a much loved/hate character of the supernatural, Dance in the Vampire Bund is a manga worth having on your list. read more

This manga kind of reminds me like Naruto in a sense. It has it's own world in the story, with it's own rules, and I think all great books do that for you; they provide you with a new surroundings and a world your not use to until you start reading it and you get sucked in. This world is a world like our until Mina (vampire queen) shows up and tells you, it isn't! That this world has vampires and other creatures too. You like the humans in the manga are just waiting to figure out everything you can about them. Do they fly, do they drink blood, are they scary? All of these questions can be answered if you read this amazing manga!
I really think this manga is very life like in a sense by the way. It is fiction (vampires, duh!) but it takes part in modern japan with human people's reactions and human emotion... well some human some vampiric.
The anime really isn't anything like the manga. The manga is still in being published so the director of the anime only did some of the plot of the manga but a lot of it was twisted to there liking.
I hope this helped you in decision to read this manga (: read more

It is intended for a more mature audience ,as some of the themes and topics aren't really suitable for younger readers. Twilight this isn't!
