“The enigmatic Vampire Hunter known only as D has been hired to track down Meier Link, a notoriously powerful vampire who has abducted a human woman named Charlotte Elbourne. D’s orders are strict – find Charlotte, at any cost.
For the first time D faces serious competition. The Markus Brothers, a family of Vampire Hunters, have been hired for the same bounty. D must intercept Meier and conquer hostile forces on all sides in a deadly race against time.
Despised by Vampires for his profession and by Humans for the blood in his veins, D relentlessly pursues his prey, little expecting where his journey will ultimately take him, as long buried secrets resurface once more.”

This is not a new scan of any original material but an extremely cheap upscale. Instead of a native 1080p scan there is an extremely ugly oversharpening filter applied that brings out all kinds of digital noise and upscaling artifacts.
To make things worse, someone who has absolutely no idea about color grading has changed all the contrast values to give it that „bluray pop“ - but all it does is crush all black detail and give the film a constant strobe-like flickering.
Finally all warm colors and green hues have been sapped out of the picture - possibly because someone thought all bright tones / highlights need to be hot white.
In times where even cheap idol made-for-tv animes get perfect collectors boxes, it is really sad to see how such amazing classics get treated.
If they had just put the dvd version on a bluray as is we would be much better of than with this horrible „remaster“.
Avoid this release at all cost.
D is back in great form and the attention to detail on the animation is so unreal you can't help but think its real!!!!
This wonderful story comes to an end all too soon for fans even though this is a full length movie...you just want it to keep going.
Get hooked on anime with this movie, or increase your passion for the genre, either way this is a must see!!!
Since I have been a fan of anime, D has been one of my most favoured characters in the world of anime horror. The combination of furturistic environments and technology with the classic gothic vampires and costumes work together really well to create a truly unique atmosphere.
The storyline is truly gripping and well structured - there really isn't a dull moment. Plus there is some dark humor, thanks to the contributions D's parasitic buddy Left Hand makes with his witty gags, scolds and jokes. Also, some scenes leave you on the edge of your seat, eager to find out what's going to happen next.
The reason I didn't rate it 5 stars is because I didn't get to see all of the film, because the DVD I had bought continually kept stopping halfway through. After that, I'm having great difficulty trying to find a decent region 0 copy. I think it will be better when it's actually properly released in the UK, like it's prequel Vampire Hunter D.
He's known only as "D;" a vampire hunter that is half-human and half-vampire. Forced to not have a life of his own, he has dedicated his existence to wiping out vampires for a price. When a woman is abducted by a well-known and vicious vampire one night, D is summoned by the family to bring her back--alive if possible, dead if transformed. As he begins the quest to get the girl back, he faces competition--a pack of thrill-seeking vampire hunters who are after the same "prize" that he is. And as the journey continues, a puzzling question plagues D's mind: Was the woman abducted, or did she go willingly? As the story unfolds, the more twists and intense action come about in this extremely dark and powerful anime.
I found myself really enjoying this movie, as I really didn't know what to expect. The animation that's presented in this tale is really mesmerizing--giving us terrifying scenery and the tone of certain doom or uncertainty. I'm convinced that such a feature like this would not have been as effective had it been transformed into a live-action movie. The animation clearly sets the tone for the movie and makes it all work. I enjoyed the story, was intrigued with the characters (especially with "D"), and loved not knowing what to expect next.
The DVD has a few goodies to offer. The picture quality is really superb. I do have a minor complaint with the sound, and that is that the talking tends to be a bit quiet at times while everything else is very loud and present. While this might've been done on purpose for effect, I think they could've made the talking just a tad louder. A very minor gripe that doesn't take much away from the feature, I assure you. Extras included are trailers, a "behind the scenes" featurette, web links, and more.
"Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust" is a great Anime that should be seen by anybody who is a fan of animated art. Be warned; it is violent and dark, but it is pretty mild compared to other anime I have seen, such as "Akira" and "Ninja Scroll." This was a great journey into the darkness that I enjoyed taking.
The iconic character that is 'D' returns, along with his talking hand (WHAT A CHARACTER!)who provides his usual unique style of dark humour and insults whilst also giving us crucial insights into the complex and often silent character that is 'D'.
I would talk about the storyline, but i realise after writing this review that masterpieces like this always transcend my inane attempts to describe them, and anyway i don't want to spoil anyones' viewing.
And so I leave you with a few words. This film retains all the elements that made the first 'D' such a cornerstone in modern anime. Manga cliches have been thrown out the window. This endlessly inventive film reminds us of the limitless possibilities of our existence, our future and our own potential.
