I need a list of Japanese anime/manga that are about vampires, or have vampires in them, and Japan's imterpretaion of them? Also, if you could basically summarize hat the story says about vampires, like what are the characteristics of a vampire in that particular story, that would help immensely! Basically, any info you got on Japanese myths/folklore surrounding vampires will help! Thank you!

DON'T BREAK THE FORTH WALL!

 

What's up with the massive amount of bots around here lately?

 

Also, Vampire Hunter D is the correct answer. It was the original and one of the best examples of Japanese novels being successfully translated into English. Lookin' at you, boring Genji book. All you do is sleep with married women!

You just said that to the wrong person bear

 

Do we actually hear our thoughts in our head, or is that entirely a human construct?

 

If we do hear them... Do we think our thoughts before we hear them?

i've heard alot of good things about Vampire Hunter D. I've been tempted to read it, but I'm always leery about transliteration.

 

I think I'll read it now, though

Vampire Hunter D has to be one of the best, if not the best Anime ever made.

I really like the novels. I read up to about book six before stuff started last year and I stopped enjoying everything in life. The author's style seems a little strange, but it's more of a Japanese-English thing. Light novels have the same problems.(High school DXD, I'm lookin at you and your glorious oppai) It's not too hard to find translated PDF or Epub online, you know, on the DL and all that. Definitely worth a read.
