Vampire Hunter D

Vampire Hunter D
Vampire Hunter D #1
Hideyuki Kikuchi
Light novel
3 stars

The first novel in the Vampire Hunter D light novel series.
A young woman is bit by a local Noble and hires D to kill the Noble to free her. A local human thug, some mutant rebels and other demons all come together to make life hard for D as he just tries to do his job.

Obviously a first novel. Descriptions go something like this “The wind snarled like a beast across the barren sky”. It is like using fingerpaints to do a portrait. Gets the job done, but kind of makes you groan at the amateurishness of it. No real character development, but since I’m guessing D is the only character common in all the books, not surprising.

A nice light read.
