In addition, the novels have been adapted to manga format in ''Hideyuki Kikuchi's Vampire Hunter D'' published by Media Factory and Digital Manga Publishing, which adapted the first seven novels of the series. There were also plans to make bring the character over to Western media with Devil's Due Publishing planning to make a comic titled ''Vampire Hunter D: American Wasteland'' by Jimmy Palmiotti which would have seen the title character travel to the United States still under control of the Nobility, but the series was ultimately cancelled.

Like ''Film/{{Zeiram}}'' and other series of the mid-eighties, ''Vampire Hunter D'' focuses more on atmosphere than plot or prose, and pulls it off beautifully. It began as an extremely long-running series of light novels (thirty-two as of January 2018, some of which are several volumes long) which spawned two anime movies. The first, based directly on the first novel, was simply titled ''Vampire Hunter D''. It involves him being hired to protect a young woman who has become the chosen prey of an "Aristocrat" (what vampires call themselves in this world), the sinister Count Magnus [[Creator/ChristopherLee Lee]]. In the second, titled ''Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust'' (based on the third novel), he is called upon to find a girl who has run off with her vampiric lover, and finds himself clashing against a group of mortal hunters. As of now there's a manga adaptation that's adapted the first seven novels as well. The character designs for the movies were done by Creator/YoshitakaAmano, who also did the cover art for the light novels.

An anime OVA feature adaptation was released in Japan in 1985, and it was dubbed and released on VHS in North America by StreamlinePictures in 1992. Advertised as the "first animated horror film for adults," the feature acquired a cult following in the US following broadcasts on Creator/CartoonNetwork, [=SyFy=] Channel, and TBS. Its success spawned an animated sequel, ''Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust'', which was first released to US theaters on the film festival and art-house circuit in 2000; a Japanese release followed in 2001. Both films were originally released on DVD by Urban Vision, and when those licenses eventually fell through, Creator/SentaiFilmworks re-released the first film on Blu-ray (with a new dub), while Creator/DiscotekMedia re-released ''Bloodlust'' (with the original dub, and only that dub).
