Thanks for reading our books, grimread!

Check out some of the samples here:
Vampire Hunter D v1 manga sample pages: http://www.emanga.com/books/Vampire_Hunter_D_Vol_1
The Japanese version has a different cover, because the publisher MEDIA FACTORY wanted it that way. They went ahead and created their own cover for the Japanese edition. It's pretty tho, isn't it?
The Japanese publisher's webpage has only 4 volumes? They are probably behind on updating that. We'll shoot them an email and have them fix it.
Vampire Hunter D manga are released first in English. Yes. We, DMP, is the original publisher. Media Factory- the Japanese publisher licenses it from us. Surprised?
