10,000 years in the future, the world has become a very different place; monsters roam the land freely, and people, although equipped 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 stands as a classic anime set in a post-apocalyptic world full of vampires. Although the animation is showing its age, the atmospheric visuals and iconic character designs enhance the viewing experience. The narrative, driven by the mysterious protagonist D, adds an interesting layer that appeals to fans of classic anime and vampire stories.

Mixed Feelings
The story and world building is not exactly anything we have not seen before, nor is the writing anything to die for, but what this story lacks in uniqueness it more than makes up for in retro anime vibes. I watched this because someone posted stills from "Vampire Hunter D" on twitter a few days ago and I knew I needed to watch it. The art style definitely fit the story. It kind of looked like a much older version of "Hellsing" or "Hellsing Ultimate". This may not compare particularly well to anime produced today, but the art style was just fun to look at. ...

Without EXTENDED knowledge of the background this anime just happens. Scenes without connection, sentences without weight, action without deep motives. The worst of Berserk outclasses this in about every aspect. Have you seen extremely poor video game/manga adaptation before? No? Look no further this is it. Whom to recommend?
Kids? Cannot due to gore and nudity...
Young adults? Maybe, but even there, most anime contains far more weight, hype, character.
Perhaps with time it was tuned too well with later coming shows, but this anime itself today is unwatchable at best.

Do yourself a favor, there are plenty other anime out there. Do not let over the 7 score ...
