UKTV Channel VICELAND to air Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust on 6th March

We have received word from our friends on the forum that the UK television channel VICELAND will be screening another anime movie to their service on Tuesday 6th March 2018 in the form of Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust.

UPDATE: It will be shown at 9pm (21:00) like Ghost in the Shell and other similar films were. Much like the other anime that’s aired on the channel, the film will be English audio only.

VICELAND is located on Sky channel 153 and also available as part of the NOWTV package.

Baron Meier Link is of a dying race, but the vampire doesn’t intend to remain lonely much longer. Abducting women in the night is common for his kind, so what’s one more? But Charlotte’s father has plenty of money, and there’s no price he won’t pay to get his daughter back. That’s why he hires D.

D is a Dunpeal, a breed rarer than that of the vampires – after all, he’s half of one. When it comes to hunting those with fangs like his own, he’s the best in the business. But that doesn’t mean he’s the only game in town. The Markus Brothers are on the vampire’s trail as well, and they’re not about to lose. It’s a race, not only between the rival Hunters, but for the vampire and his bride-to-be. But it might be more than just a job to D. Is Charlotte really a captive? Or will another Dunpeal be born to this world?

Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust is the second theatrical film released in 2000 based on the long running novel series written by Hideyuki Kikuchi (Wicked City). The film was directed by Yoshiaki Kawajiri (Ninja Scroll) and is animated by studio Madhouse (OVERLORD). This is also one of the few anime to be aimed towards the English audience first, with the English language being produced first before the Japanese dub.

Anime Limited announced they have acquired the license during its MCM London Comic Con October 2017 haul with a Blu-ray collector’s edition tentatively planned for 2018.
