"Best Character"

The "Best Character" poster by T. A. Shida appeared in the June 1986 Anime V. Another poster with a painting by Amano was offered in conjunction with the home video release.


Other Japanese Merchandise

In about 1986, Volks released a kit to make this Vampire Hunter D figure (image is from original packaging). It is very hard to find. The figure is about ten inches high when completed.



     Metal pen case





Other Japanese merchandise includes a set of three postcards, a metal pen case, a notebook, a T-shirt, cassette indexes, patches, the settei (character designs), a mechanical pencil, and a 3-ring binder. I hope to add images of these items.
