Dance in the Vampire Bund is a Japanese anime series that takes the classic vampire idea and gives it a twist. The show follows the main character, Mina Tepes. Mina is a true blood vampire, meaning that she is quite powerful and important in the vampire world. She appears to be a young girl, almost a child, but, since her body has stopped aging, she is actually older than she appears. She is clever and often has great ideas. One day, a new idea comes to her. Mina wants to make a special place where vampires can live openly and in peace.

To achieve her goal, Mina pays off the national debt of Japan. In return, Mina is granted a large portion of land, called the Bund, where she can create a safe and peaceful home for vampires. When this occurs, it is revealed to the world at large that vampires exist. This causes quite an uproar, but Mina is determined to make her plan work. She even begins a school that integrates vampire, werewolf and human students.

Once her plan has been realized, Mina is determined to live as normal a life as possible. However, Mina is often thrust into danger when creatures or other vampires seek her, hoping to use her power or influence. Luckily, Mina's best friend, Akira, is a werewolf, and protects her from harm. Mina is secretly in love with Akira but does not want to reveal her true feelings.

As the story progresses, Mina, Akira and their friends continue to try to unite humans, vampires and werewolves. They are often thrust into the middle of dangerous situations or sticky plots. As they battle for equality and normalcy, Mina and Akira also struggle with their feelings for each other. Hidden agendas are revealed and enemies continue to emerge, meaning that Mina's life is always an adventure.
