    07 January 2013Yawn!!Hideyuki Kikuchi's Vampire Hunter D, Volume 02 feels like quite the departure from the first volume, which was dark and dramatic. This isn't nearly as interesting as the previous installment. I had difficulty finding the motivation to finish it.In the beginning of this book, the dialogue is so choppy and dull, I nearly put it down. It does get slightly better as you continue on, but not good enough for me to continue the series. Another grievance I had were the continuous rape scenes. I am no fuddy duddy, but they felt tiresome even to me. The artwork is beautiful, but can be very difficult to follow sometimes. I enjoyed the first volume and all its cheesy glory, but this volume was a killjoy. I doubt I'll read the rest of the series.

    In Volume Two,The Art: It is the same just like in the first volume. I still like the way that D is drawn.The Story/Setting: It gives more on the background a bit but it still is a sexist. Ugh...It is really annoying how sexist it is. The rape scene makes you feel sorry for the woman then she becomes a slut. Like what? Also I have no clue what is happening half of the time because the dialogue is so wonky.Characters:-D: Still awesome.-Lina: I felt sorry for her at first then...not.-Other Characters: Didn't really care. All in all, I guess if you are dying to read it then read it but if you are not interested in Vampire Hunter D, don't. Don't read it.

    I do enjoy Vampire Hunter D and the art and interesting story, but there are still the stereotypical tropes that hold me back. The fact that the female characters are heavily sexualized and usually helpless, is rather revolting to me. But, in this volume, the lead female character was intelligent, destined for greater things, and yet... The way her story concluded was tragic and a bit typical with an undertone of misogyny. Still, this is the same issue I had with the first volume. The female representation is for shit, but if you can get past that and try to look at the story and art only, then it's a pretty decent read. Marked down to three stars from four because of the weak and stereotypical female character depiction.

    Too Hard to Read.I don't like that all the special effects aren't in English. I didn't get what was going on, I like reading the books better. Especially having to read weird. I didn't like the black and white manga...couldn't see what was going on, looked to me like a jumbled mess.

    The art style is amazing. The story is a bit strange and the sex scenes are unnecessary. Still, somehow it reminds me of Sapkowski's Witcher series. All in all, it was a great book and I got it so cheap. I wish I'll have more lucky finds like this in the future.

    This one was much slower than the first in my opinion. However, towards the end, the plotline sped up considerably and I enjoyed it. The art is still beautiful, and Vampire Hunter D is a wonderful, colorful character. I think the world of Vampire Hunter D grows stronger with the third story (the manga that will come out this fall) and so I eagerly await the third one.Second read:Finally. Took forever to pick this up and finish it. It is physically painful to read these manga; the binding is so tight that I have to constantly pull the pages apart as I read. Makes my hands hurt :/ The plot itself was disjointed when it made any sense at all amidst its slow crawl, likely due to a translation issue. It is increasingly difficult to ignore the obvious objectification of women and flawless protagonist that is D (perfection does not make a good story). I bought the rest of the series last year at Anime Expo, but if the third book is this frustrating, I don't think I'll be able to read it all.

    Okay in the spirit of full disclosure I've never been a big "graphic novel" person, despite loving and collecting comics as a boy and enjoying certain ones now. These however (I read the first 2) left me cold. (By the way yes I know they are "manga" not traditional graphic novels). The story is alright I suppose (I have ordered the "original" Vampire Hunter D first volume to give it a fair reading), but these just leave me cold. (by the way I don't get the entire androgynous hero thing in anime or Japanese video gameseither.) This is a very popular series (my son likes the video and for all I know some of these) but for me they just seem pointless. Sorry I know some of you like them a lot and that's great. But not me. I like horror Lovecraft, Poe, and still enjoy "The Savage Sword of Conan" among other graphics, but just not these.

    Read this in hopes of reading a manga with a good plot and great artwork. The artwork did not disappoint; the story, however,...well, it could have been better I think. It is not like the vampire hunter d the movies definitely but it had a mystery that needed to be solved and an emotionally sad ending that had a taste of a happy ending for another character. Still it just felt like it was missing something I can't put my hands on at the moment. I may still read the rest of the books in the series or whatever books in the series that sound interesting.

    manga is harder to follow for me than western comics so keeping up with the story is a bit of an effort. I love how the artist draws D but I havent decided if I like much else about the series.I would say the writing is good but it's an adaption of a very good series of novel's. that's not the comics achievement, thats the original novelist's

    Being honest, this isn't one of the books that I liked all that much. Still, the art is pretty and it's all laid out well. Since Vampire Hunter D lacks what I would call a "linear" storyline in many ways, it's really easy to just read one and read another later volume and still understand, more or less, what's going on.

    Not as interesting as the first volume. The underlying story had some interesting potential, but none of the characters were fully fleshed out, and the actions scenes were almost impossible to follow; too much focus on stepping it up from the first volume rather than turning out a solid story.

    Loads more back-story in this one and several threads that came together rather well. If you didn't really enjoy the first one, try reading this one before you give up on the series.

    I didn't find this one as entertaining as the first, but that's mostly down to the story that it adapts. Another capably-drawn entry in the series.

    Got the second manga to this series. I really enjoyed this one too. A must read.

    Graphic novel of the book. With some minor differences it was nice to see in black and white Kikuchi novels. But at the same time it took part of the magic away.

    Much like the first book, this one moves too quickly to keep up with at points, but the story is fun and the art is gorgeous.

    D just doesn't do anything for me, parts of this volume made no sense....
