Ever since its release in 1983, Vampire Hunter D has been legendary in the world of vampires. Starting off as a series of Japanese novels written by Hideyuki Kikuchi and illustrated by Yoshitaka Amano, Vampire Hunter D grew so much in popularity it spawned films, American comics, short stories, art books and manga. For a limited time only, fans and newcomers are welcome to read the first five volumes of said manga for free online thanks to eManga.
Find Vol. 1-5 HERE in both English and French. I highly suggest checking them out, it’s a fantastic manga, and eManga is one of the rare few to offer easy streaming. I’ve read digital comics and manga on other sites and it was a royal pain because of their ridiculous streaming setup, but this site is awesome.
Synopsis for Vampire Hunter D Manga Vol. 1:
“The year is 12,090 A.D., and what little is left of humanity has finally crawled out from the ashes of war and destruction. From the darkness of fallout, mutants and a race of vampires known as the Nobility have spawned. They rule the weak with no remorse. Once bitten by a Nobility, one is cursed to become a member of the undead. Villagers cower in fear, hoping and praying for a savior to rid them of their undying nightmare. All they have to battle this danger is a different kind danger – a Vampire Hunter. Enter D – a lone, mysterious vampire hunter, sought out by the desperate Doris Lang. Bitten by the vampire lord Count Lee, Doris is destined to her unholy fate… Can D deliver her from her curse and bring her to salvation, or will she forever be part of the unholy dead?”
