Default Dance in the Vampire Bund

The story revolves around Mina Ţepeş, princess-ruler of all vampires, and her "protector," Akira. Like other vampires, Mina has been in hiding with her people for many years. Seeking to end centuries of isolation, Mina gains permission to create a special district for vampires, "The Bund", off the coast of Japan by paying off the national debt of the Japanese government. Mina then reveals to the world the existence of vampires and her desire for both races to live together. Tensions, however, run high as fearful humans and extremist vampire factions begin to interfere with Mina's wish for peace with the human world, and other factions as well.

I've been promoting this show like this since its premiere. "The way Twilight should have been" Currently an on-going manga with 8 volumes so far and a recently finished 12 episode anime, this is my fav vampire show of 2009-10.
Oh, it may star off slow but believe me, stuck around long enough and you'll be treated to quite a spectacular show of action, suspense and gore. Do NOT let Mina's loli look fool you, she is pure awesomeness not only with her words, but later on in another way as well. Akira is also a likable hero whom, even though is harem material, doesn't suck. I cannot recommend this show enough to anime and vampire fans.

Oh, one more thing, the camera wants to make even the simplest thing, like breaking an egg as epic as possible, which it succeeds in doing in my opinion.

Default Re: Dance in the Vapire Bund

at first it had this very strange loli thing goin on but after 4-5 episodes it just kinda grew on me. it's got incredible artists, a lotta scenes that you would have never imagine to be important or an iconic depiction in the series is beautifully done (the butterfly and the flower scene...wow). Mina strikes me as very very mature yet so childlike, i mean shes pretty freakin old, don't let the looks deceive you lol, but she has a lot of weight on her shoulders being a queen and just wanting to live a normal life. Akira confuses me sometimes, archetypal hero case imo.

Well said about Mina and Akira. At least Akira is likable. At least he's completely loyal once he realizes where his heart truly lies, unlike most male harem leads.

Again, a warning to newcomers, the show starts off in a slow pace, but believe me, stick around long enough and you'll be in for a sweet treat.

Also, that camera, I really am obsessed with that camera. It keeps on making the most simplistic things into epic events. So freakin' epic.

I haven't started on the anime yet, but I have been reading the manga lately. Is the anime keeping close with it?

Some minor changes. I'm not sure if the manga is long past the cloning revelation, but that's where the anime ended.

It's 12 episodes milady. I won't say anymore if you haven't gone far in the manga either. I hope I haven't spoiled anything major for you. I dislike spoiling things for others.

Don't worry I don't mind spoilers as long as it's not a BIG spoiler.

I didn't exactly spoil TOO much. discover the truth yourself. Once you've finished watching the anime, I would enjoy discussing the show with you milady. You are a very wise otaku when it comes to the supernatural and suspenseful anime.

Wise? You really think so...?
I have plans to catch up to the manga tonight or tomorrow, so hopefully I'll get to contribute more to this thread by then.
