Vampires, beware. The mighty “D” wanders once again.
Anime News Network reports that Unified Pictures will unveil plans for a new Vampire Hunter D feature. The California-based company will co-produce a new CG-animated series, titled Vampire Hunter D: Resurrection, with Japanese studio Digital Frontier. Creator Hideyuki Kikuchi, as well as Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust director are involved with the production.
Unified Pictures producer Scott McLean noted that the studio aims to bring the title to television. He noted that “I’ve been a fan of Vampire Hunter D since I was a teenager […] I’m overjoyed at being able to be a part of creating a new chapter for a story I greatly admire.”
The studio will share more details at its Anime Expo panel on July 2. In addition, Universal will host a Q&A session on the 4th.
Hideyuki Kikuchi’s first Vampire Hunter D novel hit Japanese bookstores in 1983. Since then, the series has gone on to spawn 25 sequels, as well as a pair of animated films (Vampire Hunter D and Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust), a video game, a series of audio dramas, and several comic adaptations.
