Vampire Hunter D (1985)

I hate anime. Not that the stories in most of the programs of that genre aren't relevant and generally life-affirming, I just hate cartoons. Not all cartoons but the newer breed that have become a staple among adults instead of children, where they belong.

That said, when a vampire hunter has a talking hand and is half-vampire himself you tend to like the guy even if he comes across as one part Charles Bronson and another part Andrew Eldritch. The fact that he is pursuing a vampire that has fallen in love with a mortal lets you know early that irony is the greater part of the plot.

As a general vampire movie I give it 2 fangs out of 4 but taking it for what it is it's generally on the up swing of 3 fangs.
