Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust (2000) Poster

Trivia

Unlike almost every other anime in existence, English is Bloodlust's original language. The English language track for this film was created first, then the Cantonese and Japanese tracks were done next.
This film accidentally mistranslated the word "dhampir" to "dunpeal" in the English language. This is incorrect: "dhampir" is the actual term to use to describe a half-human half-vampire being, the term originating in Albania ("dham" means "teeth" and "pire" means "to drink", thus the whole term alludes to the vampire practice of "drinking with teeth") from Balkan folklore.
The character Carmilla is based on the 1872 novel with the same name by Sheridan Le Fanu.
