From his creation in the early 1980s in the series of novels by famed Japanese author Hideyuki Kikuchi, the character Vampire Hunter D has captured the imaginations of people old and young around the world, the visualization of the immortal vampire killer forever solidified in the public's consciousness by the stunning artwork of master painter and illustrator Yoshitaka Amano.
