Dark Fantasy goes anime
27 January 2000 | by (Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

Vampire Hunter D, holds true to the dark fantasy genre. The animation gives the appropriate feel of darkness and desparation. With concepts both original and historical. The legend of the Dhampyr exists in both eastern and western mythos. Not a cartoon for children, but if you like vampires and action this is the movie for you.
