Well after the first day I have to say things are not going well. Its heart breaking to see it........uh yeah right! HOLY Frijoles! You guys are serious! The first day blasted through the first goal of being fully funded in under 2 hours! Then not only stopped there just bulldozed through uh 5.....7? 10? Who can count anymore worth of stretch goals. I think we can ask VHD the Series to print this stuff on 24 carrot gold paper soon with 23 days left at this rate. You guys are amazing!

Stretch Goals .png
Looks like we are well on the way to One Hundred Fifty Thousand as it stands! Annnnnnnnnd blew past that! Now we are on our way to Two Hundred Fifty Thousand!!!! Which is blown through yet again!!! We are now WELL on our way to a big milestone of Three hundred Thousand!! To commemorate that the stretch goal looks particularly impressive with 15 new prints given to us as thanks!! Do your two hundred fifty thousand dollar dance with a twist and slide added and tell others to hurry up and join in this train is gonna keep moving like a certain Grand Duke Drago and its not stopping for anyone!!!! We still haven't even reached the half way point yet lets keep it moving!!!

We are now just a little past the half way point and rocketed past the Three Hundred Thousand mark, and well on the way to Three Hundred Fifty Thousand!!! Ten times the initial goal to fund the project!! Annnnnd then we blew past it to now surpassing 14 times the original!!! Four Hundred and Twenty thousand!!! I don't know about you but my dance is getting rather sophisticated with adding my new mark on top of the others to commemorate it!! No new stretch goals but with all the goals reached already its more than enticing even for newcomers to the series to take notice and jump right in! ONLY 6 HOURS LEFT!!!! GET ON IT DOG GONE IT!!! If you haven't gotten yours yet don't miss out if you can!

The Noble Greylancer english official translator Takami Nieda in response to a fan and wiki member has confirmed that more titles in the series that have already been published in japan can be translated and published officially in English and released!

As said in order for this to happen though FANS MUST INQUIRE ABOUT IT!

Another thing to consider inquiring about is another series that has yet to be translated as well that maybe many are not aware of known as Dhampir Hunting with the beautiful Olivia Cross who is the main character in the series who seems to be a female Dhampir much like D!

Olivia Cross Dhampir Hunting.png

So I implore fans to flood the e-mail and twitter feeds and express how much you want these series translated!

I would suggest in the subject line Putting both The Noble Greylancer: Blood of a Hero and Vampire Hunter Gaiden: Dhampir Hunting to make your message clear to them you want them translated ASAP!

Even if you e-mailed them already and forgot about the harm e-mailing them or messaging them again.....and again.

There is one thing I think most fans are feeling most is being tired of waiting for more releases....

Well channel that feeling here!

Contacts: email:


Series art creator Yoshitaka Amano and the creators of Resident Evil are teaming up for a new animated series called Gibiate:


[GIBIATE] The Animation PV

The series seems to be set in Japan in the year 2030 where an ongoing apocalypse is happening in the form of a virus that is spreading across the world turning people into various monstrosities. This Gibia virus as its named, is very radical, varying in its reaction when in contact with people based on age, sex, race. Unlike D though, the main protagonist is not one(or two) but three, two from the past traveling seemingly in time to this era from Edo Japan to meet the third. This trio comes in the form of a dual sword wielding samurai named Kanzaki Sensui, and a half blood named Kathleen who is an assistant to a prominent doctor, and a ninja named Sanad Kenroku.

many years. They are indebted to the Sacred Ancestor, and finally choose to help D, but Grove interrupts and the carriage leaves against the will of the elder. The village itself is hidden behind mountains, its walls are equipped with laser cannons and mutants hide behind rocks around it. Like any normal village, it contains houses and a town square, and the ground is covered with grass, meaning there is no corruption.

The work on the comic is coming to a completion of the series according to the latest update from VHD the Series own Scott McLean and Kurt Rauer. A surprise addition is that we will be getting a redone Message from Mars number one comic from work by Ryan Benjamin which is shown in the preview picture. There are only some last bits left in tying things up such as notes, edits, and revisions, particularly any feedback from Hideyuki Kikuchi.

The full update is here:

Long before Ryan started work on Message from Mars, he and Underworld scribe Kevin Grevioux we're working on their original series, Brother's Bond, which they published via Webtoons. Their Eisner nominated series is now getting a collected print edition and the campaign launched today on Kickstarter.

You can check it out here -

Ryan is closing in on finishing the art for the Vampire Hunter D: Message from Mars series. We still have to leave time for notes, edits, and revisions, particularly any feedback from Kikuchi-san, but we're closing in on being ready to print. Over the coming weeks, we'll be posting more art previews, likely starting after San Diego Comic-Con(which is next week).

We also want to make sure everyone is aware that Ryan has redone issue 1, so that the collected edition will seamlessly flow together.
