Description
From Seven Seas:

After millennia in hiding, Mina Ţepeş, the princess of the ancient covenant and ruler of all vampires, wants change. Using the vast wealth of the Ţepeş line, she has paid off the entire gross national debt of Japan and in so doing, gained the authority to create a "special district" off the coast of Japan that is to become the future haven to vampires the world over!
Now, on the eve of the landmark press conference announcing the existence of vampires to the world, terrorists and rival factions are plotting to assassinate Mina Ţepeş before she has a chance to make her world-changing announcement.


(Note: The Special translated by Lust subs on 9/11/11 is actually a crossover special with Dance in the Vampire Bund and Asobi ni Iku yo! by KAMINO Okina)

(Note 2: Mina makes a guest appearance in Young Miss Holmes in The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire. The story takes place in the 19th century. You can see Mina and a few other characters drawn in a different style in the story and in the usual style by the usual artist in the afterword.)

The story didn't strike me as anything original and groundbreaking, and the art contained a lot of male fan service that I just did not appreciate. Although I often read shounen manga with fan service, I hate it when it's done pointlessly. God, this had hints of all types of fetishes... Pedophilia (lolli), yaoi, big boobs, and etc.

The badass moments were plenty, and the action scenes shown throughout were pretty good too... but it's still below average. I came to really like the main pair due to their quirky relationship, but the plot is so generic that even my love for the main pair could not save this manga.

Finished and Wanting More

Just finished the series and loved it from beginning to end. And, the way it ends, I'll be looking forward to continuing adventures in the Bund. [*crosses fingers*] I couldn't get enough of the great artwork. It's so nice to see characters that aren't all built like pre-pubescent children or stick figures. It's also great to see all age groups represented (so tired of manga where adults are conspicuously absent). Loved the vampire-werewolf ally angle; so different from how the relationship between these two groups is portrayed in film/literature. I think it's an interesting, exciting, sexy, funny, touching series and I'm sure I'll be reading it again. If I ever fall into money, it is so going into my library. I'm just glad my library system has the books for lending. I'm also hoping the anime will be re-made a al FMA: Brotherhood, to follow the manga with the actual ending.

The english official version end at vol 14 with a cliffhanger. We hope for more..

On another note, the scanned version from v12 onward is atrocious. Translation is frankly terrible. The need for new manga groups to pick this up and redone with deserved quality is still there.

I hope end of Part 1 is not is not the final end and we will see part 2 soon. I can't say this is like manga of the century or something like that. It just a very enjoyable manga that I had read, I can't even pinpoint why I enjoy it so much I just do, maybe the story is just very interesting.

Too much fanservice...   
Rating: 8.0 / 10.0

to take it seriously. And this fanservice is everywhere and all over the place. Nudity at every opportunity, loli, shota, yaoi.... bestial yaoi.
The writing is kind of off sometimes. Werewolves that prefer to fight in human form... why?
The manga is truly enjoyable, but I regret reading it because it ends with "End of Part I" and more questions than answers. Years until the ending. I don't know if I will be interested then.

My favorite Vampire Manga

I originally had watched the anime and loved it. Then I read the manga and found the story went further. I started wondering after ch.48 was scanlated, how long before more chaps come out. Then I found that it was not only licensed already, but the licensed version was already ahead of the scanlations. I have up to vol.11 and am looking forward to vol.12 next month. The story keeps growing but you can see the end drawing closer finally.

Vampire Fest

This series seems dedicated to giving you as much vampire entertainment as you can possibly handle (with some werewolves on the side). If this were a movie, it would be one of the summer blockbusters that doesn't win a single award but entertains millions of people all the same. Whenever I'm itching for vampires I catch up with this series and never left unsatisfied. (insert lame pun here.)

However, it might leave some to be desired for those looking for a more philosophical work and if you're tired of vampires you might want to leave this series be for a a while. You can also see how this series goes out of its way to sexually appeal to both genders and how some plot twists are simply thrown in for shock appeal. Basically, it's what you would expect from this kind of series.

Soft Tragedy is the name of the game

I really like this series. It has a loli without putting emphasis on it, it has vampires and werewolves which if done in a good way, is fine by my book. Good action, interesting premise, art is good and the flow of story is quick enough. However, what really burns my soul is constant shitting that one of the main characters goes through. Some are dumb reasons, some are beyond his control. All of it becomes agonizing throughout the series.

The real subtext beyond all of the backstories, constant stream of tragic events, betrayals, and general dark setting is one of bonds that while at times hard to maintain due to certain circumstances, are unbreakable even if it appears frail. Having read up to the latest scanlations, its apparent that the story, no matter how tragic (and I feel pointless after so much), is only there to put emphasis on this very bond between two beings.

Theres a few details that slowly builds up the state of the world and the politics behind the ongoing story; however do not let that deceive as the main focus of the story. Its clear after a while that theres a common theme that drives at the story and usually it always involves the same two characters (and their reactions to it) as the basis formed to build up events.

Enjoyable to Read!!!

Ever since I started reading this, I was totally hooked! I own volumes 8, 9 and 10 and I'm not gonna spoil any of those volumes for anyone (unless you want to know or already know). Sure it contains loli, love between two individuals that are decades or centuries apart, nudity, and boy-rape. But there is a reason WHY she is in that form (if you read the story then you'll understand). Like what Narutosuckz said, love is love. Age doesn't play a role and neither does other physical characteristics. There is nudity, no doubt about that. But it isn't a random panty shot or boobies flying around. It happens at certain points of the story when its suppose to. The boy-rape scene. Okay, I didn't like it either but it wasn't graphic and I just continued reading.

As I stated before, I really enjoyed this story. Its a shame that scanlators worked so hard to translate, clean, and etc. the raw chapters only to be ousted by Seven Seas releasing the volumes a lot earlier. I want to say thank you to the scanlators for trying their best for continuing this project regardless of Seven Seas' licensed releases. For the readers out there, if you can't find the scanlator translated chapters, then please support the author. I know some of you may say, "I don't have a store that sells that manga/any manga". My answer to that is: look online. Buy it off amazon, ebay, kijiji, bookstore website (i.e. chapters.indigo.ca) etc if you're willing to spend a little money. Its definitely worth it! If not, then wait for new translated chapters or borrow it from someone else. Your choice.

Sorry for rambling on here, this is my first time reviewing on this site bigrazz

Peace out people!

I love how everyone authenticates their moral standards by demeaning those in the opposing party.

As it is, I cant say I enjoyed this manga much. Many of the reactions from the characters felt less believable and more like an excuse to get to the next point in the plot. That being said, the take on the whole vampire thing is pretty different and as far as the plot goes,its fairly original.

I personaly cldnt continue reading this because of my personal *eeww* moral compass, and because I just couldnt picture the characters as real.

I'd say to skip this manga-but, as seen from the many glowing reviews-it might be worth a shot.
