    Contest: Who Wants To Be a Vampire? - Win signed Vampire Hunter D books & lotsa manga

    Like This Thread!
    Toon Zone and Pop Japan Travel have teamed up for a new contest to promote PJT's Cold Steel Tour of Tokyo, Kamakura and the Sapporo Snow Festival Jan. 28 to Feb. 6. (I'm running it, so you're in for some crazy times.) Not only does Cold Steel include nine days in Japan, a visit to an anime studio and the Ghibli Museum, we're also meeting with Hideyuki Kikuchi, the creator of "Vampire Hunter D." So, since Halloween wasn't that long ago, I decided to ask TZers the question:

    "Who Wants To Be A Vampire?"

    Here's the deal: Just tell us in 1,000 words or less (sometimes less is more) the story of your first night as a vampire. The authors of the most entertaining/atmospheric/funny/profound entries will receive fabulous prizes to read in the long hours you spend hiding from the sun.

    THE PRIZES

    Grand Prize:
    • Hardcover copy of the first "Vampire Hunter D" novel, signed by creator Hideyuki Kikuchi
    • A signed copy of Vol. 1 of the "Vampire Hunter D" manga
    • A copy of the Pop Japan Travel manga
    • A manga care package from Digital Manga, including copies of Trigun Vol. 1 (hardcover), Berserk Vol. 1, Flower of Life Vol. 1, Ikebukuro West Gate Park Vol. 1, Twilight of the Dark Master, and Bambi and Her Pink Gun Vol. 1.


    First Runner-Up:
    • Hardcover copy of the first "Vampire Hunter D" novel (not available in stores)
    • Vol. 1 of the "Vampire Hunter D" manga
    • A copy of the Pop Japan Travel manga
    • A manga care package from Digital Manga


    Second Runner-Up:
    • Hardcover copy of the first "Vampire Hunter D" novel (not available in stores)
    • Vol. 1 of the "Vampire Hunter D" manga
    • A copy of the Pop Japan Travel manga


    You can hone your entry here in this thread. Then, when you have "your final answer," e-mail it by Dec. 15 to travel@popjapantravel.com for judging. (Tour applications are due the same day!)

    Also have a look at this video I made out of footage from last year's winter tour.

    Sounds like a great contest. I've got some time on my hands so I'll more then likely be submitting a entry.

    Okay, question?
    So can we JUST enter this contest without having to register for a POP Japan Tour or do we have to register with them in order to enter the contest? I'm a little murky on that detail.

    No, you don't have to buy a tour. You just have to write a story. Of course I would LIKE you to buy a tour, but you don't have to.

    I would enter, but I'm not a huge fan of anything metioned. I think this is terrific for the people who want to win this though. What a cool contest, it should be interesting!

    Are you going to post the top 3 or the number 1 for the contest winners?

    Can we enter a couple of stories, or is it just one per person?
    Also, would you like it sent in the e-mail or as an attachment (is microsoft word ok?)

    Enter as many times as you like, and any format is fine.

    OK, I've been getting some really fantastic entries. This is going to be a tough one. But there's still five days left to get your story in -- and five days left to apply to spend 10 incredible days in Japan!

    (I'm giving things away, I'm allowed to be a shameless shill.)
