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.
