When Vampire Hunter D entered the town of Sedoc it was in search of answers to the meaning of a dying vampire's last words: "Find Muma." But when he meets Mia, the daughter of the local fortuneteller, he learns the mists emanating from a smoking crater on the outskirts of Sedoc have reanimated thousands of corpses, compelling them to crawl from their graves and hurl themselves into the smoking chasm. When D goes to investigate, he finds himself split in two: a second Vampire Hunter D, full of passion and lust and hunger for the company of women, is born.

So far in the series D hasn't been the most talkative (anti)hero character, so it's quite odd, yet refreshing that his "other half" turns out to be slightly more talkative thus making D more talkative than usual too. Story take's us closer to D's origin, giving some answers and, of course, bringing out new ones about his history as D, his ever-wicked left hand and "fake D" travel to solve the riddles of hidden place called Muma.
