In a fleeting last breath, a beautiful woman on her deathbed hands a strange gemstone to D and asks that he deliver it to her sister in a remote North Sea fishing village. As D cuts across never-ending expanses of Frontier in search of his seaside destination, he is relentlessly attacked by wave after wave of mercenary and monster...all employed by the man who murdered the young girl. In order to grant a dying wish, D must find a way to keep this priceless jewel out of everyone's covetous reach, and all without sacrificing his own life!

I am not huge fan of Manga etc. genre, but I just love the art of Saiko Takaki in Vampire Hunter D, they seem to fit perfectly to the world that Kikuchi has created for his antihero D. It was D that first introduced me to the world of manga - and it is only D that still manages to raise my interest towards the genre...
