By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 7 Jun 2009
Format: Paperback
Imagine if once Europe had been ruled by a powerful vampire lord, who was sealed away in a cross by a powerful exorcist. Cool story, huh?

Now imagine if that same vampire was brought back a century later... as a cute Gothic Lolita girl, and forced to work for his jailer's descendent. The concept of "Vampire Doll: Guilt-Na-Zan" is a pretty wild one, and Erika Kari seems determined to milk this delightfully weird vampire tale for all the gender-bending, gothy-clad humor she can wring from it.

The legendary vampire lord Guilt-na-Zan is brought back to life... but discovers that he's been stuck in a life-sized wax doll by the lecherous Kyoji. To make matters worse, the doll is the spitting image of Kyoji's saintly sister Tonae (whose blood temporarily gives Guilt-na his old form back), and his inept twin brother Kyoichi (or "Night Veil") is trying to steal Guilt-na (as the vampire has been renamed) to serve him.

Worst of all: Kyoji is forcing Guilt-na to be his own personal maid, complete with frilly GothLoli wear. As in, housecleaning day and night.

Tthings become more complicated when "Night Veil" resurrects Vincent, the naive man-bat who once served Guilt-na-Zan -- and unfortunately he's having trouble recognizing his old master. And as Vincent and Guilt-na navigate the daylight world, they have other problems to deal with -- including random transformations, a nasty cold shared by the obnoxious twins, and a demon who is somehow filling a local school with boys' love. Yes, boys' love.

"Vampire Doll: Guilt-na-Zan Volume 1" is full of elegantly exaggerated manga art, lovingly detailed goth-y clothes (lacy GothLoli dresses, frilly shirts, Guilt-na's angular spiky black leather clothes), and weird supernatural creatures.

i first read about vampire doll in a preview book and it lived up to the hype. the story revolves around Guilt-Na-Zan a vampire who hundreds of years ago became trapped in a crucifix. he is later revived by the ancestor of the original exorcist that encased him in the crucifix. only he is revived into the body of a female wax doll.

the story in my opinion is very interesting and engrossing. it is also very funny at times.the panels are very well drawn and have a very interesting feel to them.

this is a great book but it isnt really a good place to start in manga.

Format: Paperback
100 years ago, an exorcist locked vampire lord Guilt-Na-Zan into a cross. Today, exorcist Kyoji, a descendent of the first one, releases Guilt-na. And puts him into a female wax doll, with the intention of using Guilt-na as a maid. It is possible for Guilt-na to attain his original form; if he drinks the blood of Kyoji's sister Tonae, he becomes the lord of the night once more. Add in a bat/human, a stupid younger brother, a little action and a lot of laughs, and there you have Vampire Doll.
This has suprisingly, a lot of plot, for 200 pages of first volume. There's a fight between Kyoji and his idiotic younger brother Kyoichi, we meet batman Vincent who turns out to be the friend of Guilt-Na-Zan, we meet a creature who sucks the evilness from others and leaves them civil and nice to others, and we get the insanity of life in Kyoji's house.
The storyline isn't your normal vampire story. There's elements of one, such as something to defeat them (the original exorcist) and requiring human blood for something (Guilt-na an Tonae), but there's also some original stuff too.
It's rare to have character intros in a first volume. This book does. And they're pretty fun too: the name, one of their characteristics and then a plea to read this book to find out x. Funny from the first page.
The actual manga starts with a flashback to when Guilt-na-zan was first trapped. It then goes to his resurrection, his discovery he is in a female body and then his realisation his magical powers now only stretch to flowers and cakes. And then the aforementioned things happen and so does some more stuff until we reach a fitting conclusion that can still make you want to read volume 2.
Tokyopop classed this as a horror and comedy.

The manga itself: funny, enjoyable, with an interesting art style. It's not as well know as it should be.
The price: How can I complain? It was 1 cent, and shipping was less than 3 euros.
Time: It took a longer time to arrive than the other manga I ordered but it was coming from a lot further away. I was in no rush to get it anyway.
Is it worth buying? Yes.

Buy it!
My favourite manga series of all time and it is sadly under-promated and little-known.
I got it as a gift from my best friend under the summary of "hot male vampire stuck in the body of female doll". While this obviously intrigued me i thought it was a shallow plot-driven story but the dialogue and interaction between the characters and the sheer effort and beauty put into the art drew me in and i now love these books.
It will suck you in and unlike other mangas it does not pull the plot out until readers get bored of wasting money. It is a short series (6 books)that embraces mangas as mangas and not just a way to produce a anime or drag out a series.
You will find yourself looking over it time and again wheather it be because of the plot, dialogue, characters or the beautiful artwork.
For something that is so cheap you have no reason not to buy and even if you do fall in love with it you wont fork out loads like other mangas like Naruto or Bleach.
Please support this under-apprechiated series and artist and suggest to all your friends!
