    For my first drama video, I wanted to do a character profile for one of my favorite anime characters, D (from the aptly-named Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust). I still love the artwork from VHD, and I love the movie even though it's a bit dated and has been used for many an AMV before mine. Basically, I wanted to explore the D's inner struggle between hunting vampires while being a half-vampire himself.

    The song "The Bird and the Worm" is a perfect fit. Not only is the mood of the music dark and disturbing, the lyrics also convey D's fear of giving in to his darker side and losing control of himself:

    He wears his heart safety pinned to his backpack
    His backpack is all that he knows
    Shot down by strangers
    Whose glances can cripple
    The heart and devour the soul

    All alone he turns to stone
    While holding his breath half to death
    Terrified of what's inside
    To save his life
    He crawls like a worm from a bird
    (ALL ALONE)
    Crawls like a worm from a bird

    Out of his mind
    The weight pushes him whispering
    Must have been out of his mind
    Mid-day delusions
    of pushing this out of his head
    Maybe out of his mind
    (Out of his mind)

    All alone he turns to stone
    While holding his breath half to death
    Terrified of whats inside
    To save his life
    He crawls like a worm
    Crawls like a worm from a bird
    (ALL ALONE)
    (ALL ALONE)
    (Crawls like a worm from a bird)
    (Crawls like a worm)
    (Crawls like a worm from a bird)

    All he knows
    If he can't relieve it it grows
    And so it goes
    He crawls like a worm
    Crawls like a worm from a bird

    Out of his mind
    The weight pushes him whispering
    Must have been out of his mind

    All alone he turns to stone
    While holding his breath half to death
    Terrified of whats inside
    To save his life
    He crawls like a worm from a bird

    All alone
    He's holding his breath half to death
    (Holding his breath half to death)
    Terrified
    To save his life
    He crawls like a worm
    (CRAWLS LIKE A WORM)
    Crawls like a worm from a bird
    (ALL ALONE)
    Crawls like a worm from a bird
    (ALL ALONE)
    Crawls like a worm from a bird
    (ALL ALONE)
    Crawls like a worm
    Crawls like a worm
    Crawls like a worm from a bird
