    Trinity Blood (Japanese: トリニティ・ブラッド, Hepburn: Toriniti Buraddo) is a series of Japanese light novels written by Sunao Yoshida with illustrations by Thores Shibamoto and originally serialized in The Sneaker. Set 900 years after an apocalyptic war between humans and vampires, the series focuses on the ongoing cold war between the Vatican, the human government, and the "New Human Empire", the government of the vampiric Methuselah.[4] Fighting on the Vatican's side is Abel Nightroad, a Crusnik - a vampire that feeds on vampires. The novels blend science fiction, fantasy, and political intrigue, with some in the Vatican and the Empire striving for peace, and the Rosen Kreuz Order doing anything in its power to stop it.

    Trinity Blood has been adapted into both manga and anime series, with continuity differences between the three versions. His friend Yasui aided in completing the manga, with illustrations by Kiyo Kujō.[5] The anime series, spanning 24 episodes, was produced by Gonzo and originally aired on Wowow network.

    The first volume of the Trinity Blood manga reached the 30th spot on the Top 100 Graphic Novel sales for November 2006.[63] Subsequent volumes have also all appeared in the top 100 spots in March, July, and November 2007.[64][65][66]

    The Trinity Blood anime series enjoyed strong television ratings when it originally aired in Japan.[67] Its North American debut was also considered successful.[68] The series is one of four FUNimation properties credited with helping the company achieve a 47.8% sales gain in 2006.[69]

    Tokyopop's translations were awful(had a lot of mistranlations and the english did not file smoothly) and they never finished the series. Half of the light novels remain untranslated. It would be amazing it was translated and released from the series from the beginning. Or it not, atleast pick up from where it got left off. 😊



  • Oh please make this translation happen! This series was accompanying me for more than ten years and the story has a special place in my heart even until today. It hurts so much to see it slowly gets forgotten. I really hope it somehow will get a revival because the depth of the worldbuilding and the characters are worth it. I read so many stories and books and yet I rarely stumbled upon such a unique idea and so many loveable characters. I went out of many fandoms in the past but this one will be surely by my side, because the atmosphere of this world is so catchy. I know, the fans for this series are currently small but I would give everything to see this series getting discovered by future readers who will fall in love with it although it is not finished.

    So if you are a fan or interested in it, please consider just to sign in for the vote. I did it too with a spare mail account. Let us all try to make it happen and do our best. It's really not much. A few clicks and maybe it will happen!

    If you really want it to happen, then you should be buying JNC's other titles which are older such as Full Metal Panic!, Crest of the Stars, Orphen, and Slayers. As I understand it, the biggest impediment to license rescues like this is that older series have typically not been very profitable for JNC, and if their sales don't improve, there may not be any more.

    So, by all means, show your interest in this particular series by voting for it, but as a group, we need to be voting with our wallets and buying the older series that JNC has already licensed in order for JNC to think that it's reasonable to license more.
