Digital Manga Publishing announced that Hideyuki Kikuchi, the author of the Vampire Hunter D novels, and Saiko Takaki, the artist of the ongoing Vampire Hunter D manga adaptation, will attend Anime Expo at Los Angeles this July as the publisher's guests. Kikuchi wrote the original Vampire Hunter D novels that inspired an anime video and an anime film. He also wrote the novel or manga inspirations for Demon City Shinjuku, A Wind Named Amnesia, Wicked City, and Darkside Blues anime. Kikuchi personally selected Takaki, a former dōjinshi artist, to draw the Vampire Hunter D manga after Digital Manga approached Kikuchi about the project.
