The company will release the first volume of the audiobook on December 15, the second volume on January 26, and the third volume on February 24. Graphic Audio added on Twitter on Saturday that MP3-CD versions of the audiobooks will ship in 2022.

Graphic Audio describes the first volume of the novel:

12,090 A.D. It is a dark time for the world. Humanity is just crawling out from under three hundred years of domination by the race of vampires known as the Nobility. The war against the vampires has taken its toll; cities lie in ruin, the countryside is fragmented into small villages and fiefdoms that still struggle against nightly raids by the fallen vampires-and the remnants of their genetically manufactured demons and werewolves.

Every village wants a Hunter—one of the warriors who have pledged their laser guns and their swords to the eradication of the Nobility. But some Hunters are better than others, and some bring their own kind of danger with them…

Adapted from the novel and produced with a full cast of actors, immersive sound effects and cinematic music! From creator Hideyuki Kikuchi, one of Japan’s leading horror authors with illustrations by renowned Japanese artist, Yoshitaka Amano, best known for his illustrations in Neil Gaiman‘s Sandman: The Dream Hunters and the Final Fantasy games.

Asahi Sonorama began publishing the novels in 2005. Dark Horse Comics is releasing the novels in English, and released the first three novels in an omnibus volume on October 27.

Kikuchi’s novels inspired the Vampire Hunter D OAV in 1985 and the Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust film in 2000. Sentai Filmworks most recently released the OVA on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in 2015, and Discotek Media most recently released Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in 2015.

Saiko Takaki launched a manga adaptation in 2007. Digital Manga, Inc. and Comixology digitally published the manga adaptation in English in June 2011.
