Dimitri Lewandowski is a celebrated tenor in early 1900s Vienna. When he is killed in an accident, his corpse is colonized by the seeds of a vampire master. At first, Dimitri denies that anything has changed, but as the people around him start dying, he is forced to accept the ghastly truth.

First of all, its concept is quite unique, not perfect, but yet very enjoyable and touching. The development of the story is good enough for a psychological manga (slow enough), but some parts could have been worked out a little bit more.
