Storyline

It is many thousand years in the future. Vampires once ruled the night but have seen their numbers reduced by fearless bounty hunters. One such hunter is D, the halfbreed son of a human mother and vampire father. When a girl from a rich family is taken from her home by the vampire Meier Link, her father contracts both D and the Markus brothers (a rival group of hunters) to race to retrieve her. As the heroes fight their way through Meier's hired guards, they begin to suspect that the girl may have gone with him willingly. Written by Lordship

Gripping and gorgeous Vampire D: Bloodlust is a must-see for anime lovers
15 July 2005 | by wonderouswashu7See all my reviews

It is a beautifully created anime! Every scene is a masterpiece and the storyline is captivating. I truly enjoyed this movie not only because of the exquisite artwork but Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust is a serious, touching, and at times humorous movie that anyone who watches it, with or without a love for animated movies, will be captured by its unique and brilliantly planned plot. And to those of you who think the hand destroyed the movie i completely disagree with them. He is an excellent source or comical relief that is needed for most people in intense movies and this is definitely an intense movie. I have seen clips of the first movie and heard the opinions of others on which is better and most of them believe that the first was slightly more gripping, but the animation is a definite improvement in Bloodlust. (I still have yet to see the first for myself.) I would have to say the only way i could be disappointed with this movie is that there aren't more of them like it.
