KLIATT - George Galuschak
In the future, vampires and human beings are at war, and Father Abel Nightroad is humanity's secret weapon. The good Father doesn't seem to fit the bill—he has long blonde hair, is endearingly clumsy, and says things like "oh my goodness" quite a bit. The Vatican sends him to Istavan to combat the city's local vampire clan; he takes refuge in one of the city's churches. This doesn't stop Lord Gyula, a Count Dracula look-alike, from sending a vampire to kill him. Unfortunately for the vampire, there is more to Father Nightroad than meets the eye. Underneath the gentle priest's exterior, a monster lurks—the dreaded Crusnik, a vampire that feeds on other vampires. And he's hungry. Trinity Blood will appeal to older readers who like horror. This manga is far from perfect. The plot and back-story are sketchy, and the art looks rushed—background details are almost nonexistent and it can be hard to tell what's going on in some of the fight scenes. But if your patrons like vampire stories with lots of bloody, stylized violence, you can't go wrong. Contains minor obscenities (a-hole) and lots of gore. A must for vampire fanatics.

this is the best. its a classic- vampires vs. humans- but with a twist... Priests and nuns carry weapons around to defeat these 'creatures'. Able nighrode has the ability to change into a crusnik, a vampire that feeds on the blood of other vampires. if you love action, vampires and scifi-- read this!!!

In the times after armageddon, terrans 'the humans' and mesuthelahs 'the vampires' are at war, constantly trying to get rid of the other species. When Father Abel Nightroad, a travelling priest who is more than he appears, teams up with the young nun Sister Esther Blanchett, the two form the holiest alliance imaginable to fight the evil mesuthelah. When a mesuthelah by the name of Lord Gyula kills Esther's adoptive mother, Abel and Esther team up to rid the world of the demon, and Abel shows how terrifying he can become. With wonderfully crafted and developed characters, Trinity Blood keeps the reader glued to the pages until the vary end. Betrayal and friendship set out the general plot, leaving characters clueless at times as to who is on who's side. Although the backgrounds are a bit underdeveloped, this manga will keep you coming back for more. And Abel's adorable face will surely have you hooked from the beginning...

I have to say Trinity Blood is just amazing not only do they have a amazing manga but the show is also just as great. I think thats great and Trinity Blood can pull of both a manga version and a T.V series. The storyline, the characters, the action everything is just great. I highly recommend this book to everyone.

If you love vampires and romance, this manga is perfect for you. If you arent really into either of those things (like me) I still recommend this series! One of the things I love most about this manga is the artwork. Trinity Blood has the most beautiful artwork I have ever seen in a manga. Another good quality this manga has, are the characters. All the characters are lovable and have good depth to them. Give this one a try, im sure you are bound to like it even if you dont really like the whole vampire thing. Probably the best Shoujo manga out there with a cool gothic twist!

In its original form Trinity Blood was a series of science fiction novels by Sunao Yoshida who died before the series was concluded. From character designs by Thores Shibamoto, Kiyo Kyujo created the Trinity Blood series of Manga. I have not read the original novels but, given the themes and storylines, that is something I would definitely like to explore in the future. The story opens at essentially an unspecified time in our future after Armageddon during the Second Moon in a world of perpetual war between humans and vampires. The Vatican has assigned Father Abel Nightroad, a priest with a secret, to serve at the parish of St Mathias and battle Istavan's local vampire power, Lord Gyula Kadar. In short order, the church of St. Mathias is destroyed by Gyula and Father Nightroad befriends and aids a young nun, Esther, from the church and together they seek out the den of the vampire Lord only to discover a terrifying plan of Kadar's for his revenge on all humans. Trinity Blood is an excellent read and definitely will hold a well deserved place in any Manga or Vampire book collection. I have yet to view the anime based on the series but, it is definitely on my list now. Some books are destined to translate well to into animation and this is one. The characters are well written and the action does spark the imagination. Kiyo Kyujo's drawings are wall art worthy and very well done. The quality of art does not, however, overtake the telling of the story like many graphic novels and other books.

Vampires,comedy,guns,and a great lead character what is not to love. Abel Nightroad without a doubt one of the coolest characters EVER!!! Even better than the anime.

I just got the first volume of the 'Trinity Blood' manga. (And there was great rejoicing!) I'm so glad Tokyopop translated it into English for those of us who are Japanese language impared. The artwork is just as amazing as the anime's is, but with a style all it's own. It jumps right in with the introduction of Sister Esther to Father Abel Nightroad (a sweet if klutzy liason from the tumultuous Vatican), and keeps you going with pins and needles from then on! The vampires (or Methuselah, as they call themselves) are nearly all powerful in this post-apocalyptical earth. The only thing that stands in their way is the Holy Catholic Church and the operatives they utilize to bring down any 'evil' vampire they can in the name of preserving the human race. Abel preaches peaceful co-exsistance between vampire and human, but his views are not widely received. But the Father has an ace up his sleeve that will leave even the all mighty vampries quaking. I highly recommend this manga series. As far as I have seen (and I am certainly no expert) reading the manga won't jaundice a fan for or against the anime. They are each just as good in their own way! There is plenty of action to the story, but don't think that fighting and vampire-slaying is the major plot-mover of this series. It's the characters and the socio/political twists and turns that keep you going! We haven't seen much of the Vatican, as yet, but the looming unrest of the holy heirarchy is ever-present, even when not directly addressed. Now I can't wait for volume 2!
