Dance in the Vampire Bund Manga Returns in Mini-Series, Part II
posted on by Egan Loo
The October issue of Media Factory's Monthly Comic Flapper magazine announced on Wednesday that Nozomu Tamaki's Dance in the Vampire Bund horror action manga is returning for a new mini-series and a new second series.
The Sledge Hammer no Tsuioku (Sledge Hammer's Recollections) mini-series will launch in the December issue on November 5. Then, Tamaki will resume the main story in Part II, which will launch next spring.
Tamaki's story follows the intrigue surrounding Mina Tepes, the princess of vampires who creates a special district for her kind off the coast of Japan. The first Dance in the Vampire Bund manga series launched in Comic Flapper in 2005, and the series just ended in the current October issue. Seven Seas Entertainment will publish the 13th volume in October, and the 14th English-language volume is already tentatively listed for release on May 14, 2013.
A television anime adaptation premiered in 2010, and Funimation released the anime in North America. The original manga also inspired a spinoff manga series called Dive in the Vampire Bund, and Seven Seas is publishing that in North America as well.
