Ever since Mina Tepes first founded a peaceful island nation of vampires off the coast of Tokyo, there has been nonstop trouble from all quarters. With the struggle to win Mina's hand in marriage by the vampire lords now over, a sense of calm has finally returned to the vampire bund.

But this period of tranquility may not be what it seems, as Mina falls into a mysterious sleep. A new, unseen enemy launches a deadly attack, and Mina's lycanthrope companion Akira is caught off guard!

Dance in the Vampire Bund is an ongoing manga series that features stunning artwork and an enthrallingly original supernatural narrative.

Dance in The Vampire Bund is a vampire manga that I happened to catch the short series on Netflix a few years ago. The anime never had an end so I’m hoping to get one by reading the manga. Mina Tepes is the vampire ruler even though she has the body of a 9 year old girl. Her guardians are the earth clan a pack of werewolves and she’s taken a fancy to one young shifter Akira making him her companion. The Vampire Bund has been created at last offering a safe place to all the vampires they just have to be oathed to Mina the vampire. However someone is determined that Mina won’t lead and is attempting to have her killed. Thankfully she has Akira by her side even though I think Mina can take just about anyone. She’s also wanting to start sending the vampire children to the school where Akira was attending claiming it was built with the intention of teaching both. However the students as well as vampires aren’t so thrilled and things run rapid.

In the 6th installment Akira is still fighting for his life against the assassins who are determined to figure out Mina’s secret and end his life. While fighting the challenges he finds help from people he’s encountered thanks to Mina who are willing to risk their lives to help save his. Giving him time to heal and fight off the attacker’s one at a time. While waiting for the champion to arrive Mina wagers her future on the arrival of Akira as the champion. Will Akira return to Mina or will the challengers be to much?

I find Mina an intriguing character even though she’s an ancient vampire trapped she’s in the body of a young girl which makes her seem weaker. I have a feeling she’s a lot more than the girl she appears to be at least so I far and I’m curious to see how she evolves. Not sure how I feel about Akira I’ve got some mixed feelings about him at the moment. I see a potential love match but hopefully Mina will grow up a little physically.

I watched the anime on Netflix but it didn’t really have a ending and that was a few years ago so I’m hopping to see how it will play out. I like the art some of the detailing is well done. The concept is interesting the idea of building a vampire city for them all to live in seems to work protecting the vampires as well as the humans. Mina is an interesting character who’s quickly growing on me with each page. The story is face paced flowing smoothly along. I’m looking forward to seeing how it will all play out at last. I’m quickly finding the series addicting it’s hard to put down the more I read the more I want to know how it’s going to play out next.
