The year is 12,090 A.D., and what little is left of humanity has finally crawled out from the ashes of war and destruction. From the darkness of the fallout, mutants and a race of vampires known as the Nobility have spawned. They rule the weak with no remorse. Once bitten by a Nobility, one is cursed to become a member of the undead. Villagers cower in fear, hoping and praying for a savior to rid them of their undying nightmare. All they have to battle this danger is a different kind of danger – a Vampire Hunter.

Enter D – a lone, mysterious Vampire Hunter sought out by the desperate Doris Lang. Bitten by the vampire lord Count Lee, Doris is destined to her eternal fate… Can D deliver her from her curse and bring her to salvation, or will she forever be part of the unholy dead?

The City, a tiny metropolis of a few hundred sheltered citizens floating serenely on a seemingly random course a few feet above the ground, has long been thought safe from the predation of marauding monsters. It seems like a paradise. A paradise shattered when an invasion of apparent vampire threatens the small haven. While the Vampire Hunter known only as “D” struggles to exterminate the scourge, a former denizen of the city, the attractive Lori Knight, and the brash John M. Brasselli Pluto VIII seize control of the city, lurching it onto a new and deadly course. D’s travails are just the beginning.

When the sister of a beautiful, murdered woman summons D to the village of Florence, the Hunter finds the once-thriving resort town in the grip of a vicious plague that seems to originate from the nearby sea. In a race against time, D must look back to a decadent age nearly a thousand years prior, when Florence's pleasure-seeking vampire inhabitants were banished by a lone soul dressed in black. Did the single standout from this mass exodus -- the Baron Meinster -- curse the town upon meeting his end at the hands of the mysterious traveler?

Vampire Hunter D is famed horror-master Hideyuki Kikuchi's revolutionary tale of a beautiful Hunter and the war he is destined to wage against the bloodthirsty Nobility! The elusive D must look deep into both the looking glass of the past and the rumbling ocean waves in order to find the source of a scourge that's destroying a picturesque seaside village. Is a revenge-fueled Noble to blame...from beyond his watery grave?
