At the Vampire Bund, a peaceful island nation of vampires off the coast of Tokyo, the trouble never ceases.

Vampire queen Mina Tepes suffered an attack from nano-technology. As the Bund's security teams deal with this latest threat, an even bigger terror strikes: a mysterious new assassin who wields a power greater than even Akira's lycanthropic abilities. As Akira hunts the enigmatic assassin down, Akira's own dark past is revealed, creating a schism between Akira and Mina that may never be healed. 

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 7th installment they have overcome the meeting with the council leaders who think they have a chance to be Mina's future husband. Things should be getting back to normal but a new wolf who knew Akira in the past has arrived causing an uproar. Suddenly Mina falls into a deep sleep as if lost in a dream will they get her out?

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.
