      Embarking on the hunter’s path is the pursuit and redemption of the missing

      An anime that is completely on my point. The pictures and settings are magnificent and magnificent. The details and subtle psychology are very brilliant. It finally makes me step into the new field of Japanese comics that I have never dared to try before. At the same time, I am also in the process of watching movies. In, I realized that what I have been searching for for so many years...

      Representative works of Yoshiaki Kawajiri

      I got to know the director Kawajiri Yoshiaki by chance. So I chose the best rated works and watched them all in chronological order. They are Monster City in 1987, Beast Warriors Ninja Post in 1993, There is also this 2000 Vampire Hunter D. Why do you feel that the taste of the three films is getting weaker and weaker? I
      don't want to say more about the storyline. I always feel that I am not used to this style of painting, and I prefer the first two films.

      What I watched is...

      The nature and destiny that cannot be concealed by the cold appearance

      Vampires are a type of fantasy theme, and the core of many stories is the relationship between people and vampires. The story of "Hunter D" takes the more common vengeance and love affair between people and vampires as clues. The final contradiction lies in the rational and emotional contradiction between Hunter D and the vampire who is offered a reward for falling in love with humans-no matter how we use rationality. , Regulations to restrain oneself, can not get rid of the blood flowing in...

      gorgeous picture

      The picture is very gorgeous and brings great satisfaction to the visual. Maybe watching it a few years ago will be moved by the love in the plot, there is no doubt about that. It's just that I haven't watched this animated movie a few years earlier, so love is naturally second in comparison to this gorgeous picture. I like D's loneliness, but I think, deep down in his heart, he also hopes to have the same day as humans have the end of his life.

      Would love to see how his vampire king...

      unable to be at peace

      Yoshitaka Amano's painting style was originally barren and moving, which also made D's breath more real.
        Mixed in the tragic love story at the other end, D's variety is more dominant. A character like D is the most outstanding master in martial arts novels. All angry emotions can be turned into peace, but not the kind of person who is emotionless. The pact with Layla can also be seen as an explosion of his own way of loneliness and hope that he has lived in the world for many years. But...

      Medieval + Gothic Cathedral + Steampunk + Bizarre Creatures + Super Power Race + Dark Vampire... The setting cannot be better! The main line is relatively simple, it is the adventure story of a mixed male protagonist accepting a commission to retrieve a certain woman. The atmosphere relies on BGM to achieve the best effect, and the style is gorgeous to dazzling. It's a great movie with a vampire theme! (Two brushes: 1. Vampires are a contradictory setting. People created vampires in order to...

      2014-07-30 God praises the gorgeousness and superfluousness of this rococo. I miss all the grace of hypocrisy, the tedious and useless exquisiteness, the destiny that has become plausible, and the glorious burnt down.

      Think about it, if you are the only one who has no end in life, what a terrible thing is that, how can it be deep into the loneliness of your bones?...

      The style is cool and the plot is average. I was interested in the work of Yoshiaki Kawajiri for the first time, and next I will read "Jubei Ninpu...

    Make the background

    The novel version was first published in 1982. The author injected respect for "Vampire DRACURA", and then created the half-human half-vampire protagonist vampire hunter "D" with the title of his ideal vampire. Since the novel was published, it has been welcomed by many readers. So this work was adapted into an animated film, and the story frame of the theater version was derived from the third part of the novel series "D-Monster...

    Movie quotes

    • Left Hand: Did you ever hear the expression "Too close for comfort"? That was damn uncomfortable.

    • Kyle: I have a very bad feeling about this.

      Borgoff: How so?

      Kyle: I think I've finally figured it out, Borgoff.

      Borgoff: Well, I'm sure you're right... if you're thinking they're headed for the Castle.

      Kyle: Yeah, that's right, the Castle. The Castle of Chaythe. WHAT ARE YOU THINKING? WE CAN'T GO IN THERE, IT WOULD BE SUICIDE! IT WOULD BE INSANE!

      Borgoff: What are you now, afraid of a little insanity? Since when have we been sane? We just have to get to them before they reach the Castle.

    • Borgoff: Hey, did you ever hear the one about the owl and the squirrel? The squirrel works all summer storing away stuff for the winter; all kinds of nuts and seeds. Works real hard. Then one day, just before the first snow, he goes outside for one last look around, when all of a sudden this owl swoops down and grabs him, carries him off.

      [looks up]

      Borgoff: 'Ah, what a shame' says the squirrel 'what's going to happen to all that good food?'

      [starts chuckling; eventually Nolt & Kyle join his laughter, Nolt grabbing Kyle so tightly he starts to choke]
