Quotes

Count Magnus Lee: I've lived for almost ten thousand years. Believe me you have no idea what that means: boredom. Everlasting and hideous boredom. A never ending search for ways to pass the time... and mating with a human female is one of the few I enjoy. Eventually they become tiresome. For in spite of their vitality, they are fundamentally stupid creatures who couldn't survive without the nobility to rule them. Perhaps now you'll understand my wanting to have some fun every thousand years or so?

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.
