Exclusive: Vampire Hunter D Has New Animated Series in the Works
posted on 2015-06-30 10:00 EDT

Japanese CGI studio Digital Frontier collaborates with UnifiedPictures from U.S.

California-based production studio Unified Pictures told ANN that it is unveiling plans for a new CG-animated series based on Hideyuki Kikuchi's long-running Vampire Hunter D novel series at Anime Expo. The company is co-producing the series with Japanese CGI animation studio Digital Frontier (Resident Evil: Degeneration, Tekken: Blood Vengeance, Mighty No. 9).

Kikuchi himself is also involved with the project.

Unified Pictures producer Scott McLean said the company is looking to bring the series to television. "I've been a fan of Vampire Hunter D since I was a teenager," McLean said. "I'm overjoyed at being able to be a part of creating a new chapter for a story I greatly admire."

Unified Pictures will share more details, such as plans for the show's format and story, at its panel at Anime Expo on Thursday, July 2. The company will also host a Q&A session at the convention on Saturday.

Anime Expo will be held from July 2-5 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Canadian horror magazine Rue Morgue reported in 2010 that Kikuchi was working on a new anime series.

Cool. I wonder if it'll be an original story or if they'll incorporate the novels?

I'd be interested in this if they do it justice. I liked Bloodlust but didn't care as much for the first movie.

I loved them both but Bloodlust is easily the lesser of the two. Interested to see what direction they go in with this.
