Synopsis for Kyuuketsuki Sugu Shinu
Vampires are said to have many weaknesses, such as garlic, crosses, and sunlight. Gambling-loving vampire lord Draluc turns out to be weak to…everything. He dies, turning into a pile of ash, at the slightest blow. After the vampire hunter Ronaldo learned of the existence of a castle inhabited by a vampire who was rumored to have kidnapped a child, he went there with the intention of slaying the demon. However, the vampire turned out to be Draluc, a wimp who turns to ash at the slightest thing. Furthermore, the boy was not being held captive, but was using the “haunted house” as his personal playground. When his castle is destroyed, Draluc moves into Ronaldo’s office, much to the other’s annoyance. Despite their differences, they must try to work together to fend off rogue vampires, Ronaldo’s murderous editor, investigators, and much more, with Draluc continually dying along the way.
