 This is a Japanese animated version of the 1970's Marvel comic book TOMB OF DRACULA. Now being a 70's kid I knew of TOD but I was more of a WEREWOLF BY NIGHT and superhero comics fan at the time. What little I do know of the Dracula comic though makes me think that this isn't a very faithful adaption of that character. In this film Drac comes to Boston, grabs himself a wife(who has super-powers for some reason), has a kid(who gets killed but then comes back as a superhero also) and fights against some vampire-hunters and Satan. Apparently Satan doesn't like relationships. As far as anime goes this is pretty standard-looking stuff but it's cool to see zombies and ghouls and vampires battling it out. AKA TOMB OF DRACULA and DRACULA. There was also a Frankenstein anime made around the same time based on Marvel's MONSTER OF FRANKENSTEIN comic that I haven't heard anything good about but I've yet to see it.
