VAMPIRE HUNTER D
Vampire Hunter D is based off a famous anime by the
same name. There is actually two VHD(vampire hunter D)
movies. The first came out sometime around 1985, and
they just reproduced a new movie that came out in
Japan theaters in 1999. The PSX version is based off
the new movie.
This FAQís was not that hard to write, but I still
don't know what the plot is of the story since they
speak in Japanese, and it's subtitled in Japanese. So
if anyone has this game, and knows some of the plot or
main character name's please feel free to e-mail me,
of course I will give you full credit for it. Plus if
any one wishes to use this FAQís for their web site,
you may, but please E-mail me first.
