Vampire Hunter D Vol. 1

12,090 A.D. It is a dark time for the world. Humanity is just crawling out from under 300 years of domination by the race of vampires known as the Nobility. The war against the vampires has taken its toll: cities lie in ruin, the countryside is fragmented into small villages and fiefdoms that still struggle against nightly raids by the fallen vampires-and the remnants of their genetically manufactured demons and werewolves.

Every village wants a Hunter – one of the warriors who have pledged their laser guns and swords to the eradication of the Nobility. But some Hunters are better than others, and some bring their own kind of danger with them...

From creator Hideyuki Kikuchi, one of Japan's leading horror authors with illustrations by renowned Japanese artist, Yoshitaka Amano, best known for his work in Neil Gaiman's Sandman: The Dream Hunters and the Final Fantasy games.

• The series is comprised of 17 novels. Written in 1983, this is the first English language edition ever published.

Vampire Hunter D Vol. 2: Raiser of Gales

The adventures of Vampire Hunter D continue!

Vampires: murderous creatures in the shape of humans, they stalk the night feeding on the blood of innocents. Seemingly immortal, they can be destroyed only by the use of a stake through the heart, severing of their heads, or exposure to sunlight. By the year 12,090 A.D. vampires have ruled the Earth for almost 300 years, and it is only these weaknesses that have kept the foul monsters from totally overrunning the world.

But what happens when those rules no longer apply? The village of Tsepesh sits in the eternal shadow of an abandoned castle, a one-time stronghold of the Nobility, the vampire lords who rule the devastated wasteland of the future. Ten years ago, four children disappeared while playing near the castle, only to mysteriously reappear a month later. Now vampires have begun to hunt in the daylight. Are the two events connected? The villagers turn to the Vampire Hunter known only as D, but as he follows the children – now adults – the answers he finds may be more terrifying than anything he could imagine.

The novel that was the basis for the hit motion picture Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust is available in English for the first time!

The third volume of the popular Japanese series, Vampire Hunter D, comes to America in Vampire Hunter D: Demon Deathchase. The Vampire Hunter known only as D has been hired by a wealthy, dying man to find his daughter, who was kidnapped by the powerful vampire Lord Meierlink. Though humans speak well of Meierlink, the price on his head is too high for D to ignore and he sets out to save her before she can be turned into an undead creature of the night. In the nightmare world of 12,090 A.D., finding Meierlink before he reaches the spaceport in the Clayborn States and gets off the planet will be hard enough, but D has more than just Meierlink to worry about. The dying man is taking no chances, and has also enlisted the Marcus family, a renegade clan of four brothers and a sister who don't care who they kill as long as they get paid. Beautiful illustrations by Yoshitaka Amano complement the post-apocalyptic plot, filled with chilling twists.

When a floating city becomes the target of a rash of vampire attacks, only one man can restore the oasis.

A paradise shattered when an invasion of apparent vampires 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 Raleigh Knight, and the brash John M. Brassalli Pluto VIII seize control of the city lurching it onto a new and deadly course. D's travails are just beginning.

Vampire Hunter D Vol. 8 Mysterious Journey to the North Sea Part 2

The picturesque coastal town of Florence was known for millennia as a pleasure resort for the Nobility. As retribution for their decadence, the cruel and beautiful vampire inhabitants were "punished," driven out more than a thousand years ago by a solitary traveler in black. Only one-Baron Meinster-refused to leave, only to be thrown to the waves by the mysterious assassin.

Summoned to contemporary Florence by Su-in, sister of a murdered village girl, the enigmatic Vampire Hunter D discovers a vampire curse ravaging the town's human inhabitants. The plague apparently originating, impossibly, from the unforgiving sea-could it be Meinster's Revenge?

Vampire Hunter D Vol. 10: Dark Nocturne

In this first collection of novellas, Vampire Hunter D creator Hideyuki Kikuchi takes us on a journey through three tales of mystery, magic, forbidden love, and inescapable destiny.

In the title story, “Dark Nocturne,” D is hired to unlock the secret of a siren’s song that is drawing young men to their deaths in the hills outside Anise Village. Are the accursed under the spell of a vampire, or something more sinister? In “An Ode to Imagined Fall” D finds himself caught between two lovers during a ritualistic sacrifice in the village of Shirley’s Door, but if D can’t stop the slaying will all in the village be doomed? And in
“Legend of the War Fiends,” two remnants of a war waged hundreds of years in the past—living weapons genetically engineered to fight until none survived—find that battle is not so easily forgotten. It’s up to D to stop their unending conflict before history repeats itself, consuming everyone in their path.

Krauhasen: A mysterious land under the control of Lord Vlad Balarge, a member of the vampire Nobility. When Lord Vlad’s son, Baron Byron Balarge, needs to make a long and treacherous journey to faraway Krauhasen, he commissions the help of the infamous Vampire Hunter D, promising a princely sum and a solemn vow—no feasting on any humans for the duration of their journey!

Still, D finds his work cut out for him as the duo encounters an ongoing parade of thugs, rogues, and runaways, all with riot and revenge in mind. The pair are joined by the teenage tumbling act, May and Hugh, and the haughty Noblewoman Miska, recently spared death by the stake.

D has crossed over the southern border, into the domain of the cruelest and most evil of the royalty, General Gaskell.

In order to unravel the mystery of the seal, Setsura leaves Mayumi in the care of Mephisto, the Demon Physician, and sets out to rid Gento of his evil casket, which he is using to strengthen his demonic powers day after day. Robbed of Mayumi, Gento gathers allies of his own to send against Setsura. Meanwhile, the wizardess Galeen Nuvenberg has the seal in her sights. Who will triumph in this battle for the fate of Demon City?

Yashakiden: The Demon Princess Vol. 1

After a devastating earthquake that left most of Japan in ruins, the district ward of Shinjuku in Tokyo has opened up a doorway into another dimension-becoming the halfway-house suspended between the mortal world and the supernatural.

Setsura Aki, undercover P.I., is considered the best "man hunter" in the business. He allies himself with friend and rival, Doctor Mephisto-a wizard of physical and spiritual surgery. Together, they battle the evil forces that overrun the city.

Coming from the deepest and darkest parts of China, four immortal demons, led by the Princess of vampires, have surmounted four thousand years of space and time to seize control of Shinjuku and make it their own.

It is up to Setsura and Mephisto to uncover their new formidable foes'dark plans for the city. Can the duo stop them before they plunge the living populace into a new level of fear and slavery none can escape?

The immortal vampire gang led by "Princess"-Kikiou, Ryuuki and Shuuran is slowly but inexorably taking over Demon City Shinjuku. Its citizens and the administration alike are turning into vampires. Mephisto has apparently allied himself with them of his own accord.

Setsura Aki stands alone on the brink of extinction, tested by one desperate counterattack after the next. Intending to snuff out his life once and for all, Princess unleashes the self-regenerating Kazikli Bey (better known abroad as Vlad the Impaler, the original Dracula).

Meanwhile, concerned about the worsening state of affairs in Shinjuku, a team of foreign legionnaires-Special Forces Operational Detachment "F"-is dispatched to Demon City.

This Medusa of a supernatural face-off has grown another head. The confusion deepens and Shinjuku's fate hangs in the balance. But what is Mephisto really up to?

The vampirization of Demon City Shinjuku is nearly complete.

Princess, the legendary evil vampire from ancient China, and her followers Kikiou and Ryuuki have unleashed the plague of vampirism upon the already debauched and depraved city on the edge of the abyss. As more and more of Shinjuku's citizens turn into creatures of the night, a secret government plan is hatched to annihilate Demon City with a nuclear device.

As the clock ticks down, beautiful manhunter Setsura Aki enters Princess's kingdom to retrieve Princess's hostage-the Prime Minister of Japan. There he meets a mysterious mask maker from a bygone era and undergoes a transformation. But will it be in time to save Shinjuku?

Meanwhile, the Demon Physician-Doctor Mephisto-remains a voluntary prisoner in Princess's camp. To what end-and whose side is the good doctor truly on?

And in Shinjuku's Magic Town, Tonbeau Nuvenberg and the Doll Girl find the portal to Princess's kingdom-a box sealed by magic. To open the box, they must do the impossible: access the timeline of the Universe itself-the Akashic Records.

The thrilling conclusion to the great vampire series, Yashakiden: The Demon Princess- by the master of Japanese horror fiction-Hideyuki Kikuchi.
