Old enough that many of the anime techniques used herein have become cliche -- but still has a cool enough story to be worth a look.

Audience Reviews for Vampire Hunter D

Based on the manga created by Hideyuki Kikuchi (I google it) this a great story about a dampeel named D. Fantastic vampire anime, specially the character created by Yoshitaka Amano (big fan! Didn't google it). I want to see a third part.

Love Vampire Hunter D. Considering how old this is (made in 1985), the animation stands up really well. Also, the commentary is one of the funniest and most informative I've heard so far.

Compared to the remake, this is just God-awful. Violent, shitty and stupid, this is what gives anime a bad name.
