Dark Wars: The Tale of Meiji Dracula

Dark Wars: The Tale of Meiji Dracula - Hideyuki Kikuchi This book was quite good to read. I read it in four days. This was before I had a glimpse of Vampire Hunter D. It was quite good book. Well the plot is quite simple. Vlad or Count Dracula arrives and sets a residence in Edo (Tokyo). Daigo Shoichiro, a 17yr old swordsman and his friend meet count in the eventing as they are trying to see a painting. As Dracula victims pile up Jigoro a sensei builts a team to hunt Count. The final battle between Daigo and the Count was quite good. Kikuchi brings Edo's settng beautifully. He crafted a beautiful tale and gives us some insights into Edo's changing years as the old classical Japan was reforming into a new technological empire. The scorn that was setting in against the Bushido code and the old religion. Not to mention the amazing drawings made by Amano
