The island of Growerth in northern Germany is home to Viscount Gerhardt von Waldstein, a vampire who rules the island as the Master of the Night. His accepting and merciful character has naturally attracted many nonhumans to the island in search of a place to call home. All sorts of colorful characters, from fellow vampires to witches and werewolves inhabit Waldstein Castle. Chief among its residents, however, are the viscount's family—his twin children Relic and Ferret.

Only a slight distance from the castle is the city of Rukram, whose mayor is a trash-talking Dhampyr with a bone to pick against the viscount. There also seems to be a young woman with a taste for vampires' flesh, and a shapeshifter with a complex about his true form.

And then there's the mysterious Organization—a group of vampires plotting... something. No one quite knows what they're up to, not even the members themselves.

A vampire series by Ryohgo Narita, Vamp is an early installment in Naritaverse, along with Baccano! and Durarara!!.

This series is on hiatus.


Vamp! was to be published in English by Seven Seas Entertainment but was withheld prior to release as their entire light novel line was canceled due to it proving to be unprofitable.

Written by the same author as the immensely popular Durarara!! and the acclaimed Baccano!, Vamp! is.... surprisingly under the radar. It has similar characteristics of Narita's other works including a ridiculously unique cast of characters and pretty solid plot twists but for some reason nobody has ever heard of it.

I for one had a ton of fun reading it and very much enjoyed it.

Vamp is incredible. And an experience. And it's written by the Durarara and Baccano guy, both of which tend to be very well received, and pretty popular here. So why is Vamp so overlooked? Other than the lack of an anime adaptation, you'd think that for such a good series more people would have noticed it. I hope with this review to inspire at least a few more people to read it since there's a prominent lack of a fanbase.
On to the review.

One of the great things about Vamp is it takes elements from all kinds of vampire stories but avoids casting vampires as read more
