That being said, the story and artwork were amazing! I've loved Vampire Hunter D since I was a child, it was my first encounter with late night anime. So it was the first graphic novel I sought out when I purchased my Kindle Fire.
In a post apocalyptic world where beings have mutated into various creatures of the night, humans have become the weaker species. Ghouls, were creatures, and even vampires have dominated the human race into fear and submission. Humanities answer back to such forces were the vampire hunters, the legendary D being the greatest of all of them. Being a Dhampir, a human and vampire cross breed, gives D the edge and doing what he knows best, obliterating evil and defending the weak and innocent. Toss in some weird stuff and oversized chests for variety and D is ready to rock.
My only down fall on these is that the font is too tiny to read. I end up having to blow up the page to try and ready the font-which just makes things worst by distorting and pixelating the page. I wish that this series would update their books to the panel by panel option, where it shows you an enlarged sceen shot of each panel in sequence. This makes the words appear clear and legible, plus it makes the reading experience go smoother. I do love reading these stories over and over again, but the small font makes it real tedious to do so.
"I'm not sure why one of the reviewer stated that the manga was updated to fit the Kindle DX. There is a one inch margin on the right side of the page on each page. It is very difficult to read and the quality is very poor."
Exactly. It was unbearable to read on an iPad and I can only imagine it's just as bad on anything bigger than the dinky Kindle screen. Bad buy and will not be purchasing manga from Amazon.com in digi-format again.
