* LegalJailbait - Mina. This show is probably the only one to ever ''justify'' this trope as we learn that [[spoiler:Mina stopped growing the first time she used her full vampiric power, and chooses to stay that way rather than going around in her sexually mature true form. This is a deliberate attempt to hide her ability to bear a vampire child from the other three vampire lords - all more or less creepy old men with no redeeming values whatsoever who would, if necessary, force her to bear a child]].

Out of the blue, Japan finds itself host to a new "mini-nation" inside of the Bund, an artificial island off the coast. Mina Tepes, heiress of the Tepes Dynasty of Vampires, [[TheUnmasquedWorld announces to the world that Vampires exist]], she has paid off Japan's national debt, and that they are choosing to live in peace inside the Bund from now on.

The story is told from the point of view of Akira Kaburagi, a Werewolf and Mina's chosen guardian. Giving up a life as an ordinary high school student when Mina decides to out the entire vampire population, Akira has his work cut out for him, as Mina has pissed off just about ''everyone'' with her announcement -- the humans want to wipe the Bund off the face of the Earth, rival vampire clans want to wipe the Bund off the earth, and even members of her own family want her for their own reasons.

The series also has two side-stories which are as followed:

* '''Dive in the Vampire Bund''': A two-volume story that focuses on a new character who is unwillingly turned into a vampire thanks to the stupidity of his friend while visiting the Bund and his quest to find the cure before the transformation becomes permanent.
* '''The Memories of Sledgehammer''': A three-volume story that takes place after the end of the first series and focuses on Akira's friend and fellow werewolf Seiji Hama, who finds himself trying to stop an assassination attempt while dealing with figures from his past.

The original manga was announced to end on September 5th, 2012 follow but was followed by the above spin-offs. In 2013, the series continued with the subtitle "Scarlet Order" which takes place seven years after the events of the first series and sees Mina and Akira once more facing a threat to the Bund, this time from human opponents. It lasted four volumes.

An animated adaptation was released in 2010 (trailer [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PwZlzA05JLU here]], '''{{NSFW}}''') by Creator/StudioShaft. The animated adaptation was later licensed and released by Creator/FUNimation in the US. Similarly, the manga has seen a fairly faithful release by Seven Seas Entertainment in the west.

Seven Seas distributes Kaoru Shintani's (of ''Manga/{{Area88}}'' fame) Young Miss Holmes in which Mina makes a guest appearance in the Case of the Sussex Vampire (Nozomu Tamaki provides art for the arc's epilogue - which takes place during Mina's voyage to establish the bund itself).
