About The Book

• Shirodaira's debut novel Meitantei ni Hana wo (Rose and Detective) was nominated for the 8th Annual Ayukawa Tetsuya Award in 1997.
• The Record of a Fallen Vampire is from Square Enix, the Japanese publisher of Fullmetal Alchemist and Final Fantasy.
• Kyo Shirodaira is also the author for Spiral-Suiri no Kizuna (mystery manga that has anime tie-in – FUNimation did the English dubbing).
• Translated into Chinese and Korean
• Art is clean and dynamic (certain action panels look like you’re watching anime). 
• Strong secondary characters (reader gets to see the story told from different points-of-view; this makes the story more complex and interesting).

Thousands of years ago, Vampire King Akabara “Red Rose” Strauss lost both his kingdom and his queen. Since humans were unable to kill the queen, they sealed her away, erecting thousands of fake seals so that the king would never find her true location. Despite being pursued by relentless vampires, Akabara continues to search for his queen to this day…


Akabara is heavily injured during his battle against Kayuki, the newest incarnation of the Black Swan. Kayuki remains shrouded in mystery-–not only does she bear a striking resemblance to the previous Black Swan, but she also offers Akabara a temporary truce! Why does she need to keep the Vampire King alive?
