A classic piece of Japanimation
18 November 2001 | by (uk) – See all my reviews

By the same director of 'Fist Of The North Star', 'Vampire Hunter D' is in much the same mould as 'Fist' - post-apocalyptic setting, brooding heroes, exploding heads and plenty of gore to boot! I personally love this anime, the story, characters, music and even animation (albeit a bit rough and 80's) all combine together well to make this an anime to watch again and again. Another parallel with 'Fist' is the amazing amount of cheesy one-liners - they keep me and my friends 'occupied' for hours! (I was once told of mutant that could twist space around him, and now it seems I have met him! - a good example!)
