Vampire Hunter D
Prebook: 8/23/00 Street Date: 10/3/00

The ties of blood that bind…

The year is 12,090 AD, a time when men no longer rule the Earth, and monsters run rampant beneath the lenient claws of vampires. Enforcing an archaic feudal system tinged with the blood of oppressed humans, vampires rule in aristocratic clans that subject people to their every passing whim.

One village, singled out by the ancient Count Magnus Lee, is prey to the vampire's desires, and must give forth a young woman named Doris, whom he has chosen to entertain him for the rest of her lifetime. In desperation, Doris hires a mysterious Vampire Hunter known only as “D” to kill the Count. Conspiracies against D and hidden plots to thwart the Count's intentions complicate matters further - and time is running out for Doris! It is up to the Vampire Hunter to slay the tyrannical Count, destroy his legacy, and save the girl in one stroke!
