Trinity Blood (トリニティ・ブラッド, Trinity Blood?) is a series of Japanese novels written by Yoshida Sunao, which were originally published in The Sneaker, a periodical that features Japanese fiction. The character design and original illustrations are done by THORES Shibamoto.
There are also manga and anime spin-offs - the manga is drawn by Kiyo Kuujou and is serialized in Asuka magazine, with 7 manga volumes currently available, whilst the anime is produced by GONZO and there are 24 episodes in total. It aired on Thursday on the WOWOW channel. There are considerable differences between the continuities of the novels, the manga, and the anime.
Yoshida Sunao was unable to finish the story. He died on 15th of July 2004, shortly after the announcement of the anime, due to a lung blockage. He was 34 at the time. After he died, Kentaro Yasui (a friend of Sunao Yoshida and author of the Ragnarok novels) was asked to continue the novelization of Trinity Blood.
There are two sets of novels in Trinity Blood, Reborn on the Mars (R.O.M.) and Rage Against The Moons (R.A.M.). The events in Rage Against the Moons take place before those in Reborn on The Mars.
The background is in the distant future, a post-apocalyptic world after the destruction brought about by Armageddon. The war between humans (Terran) and vampires (Methuselah) continues, as a struggle between two factions: the Vatican and the New Human Empire. Yet, amidst the bloodshed and violence, many desire a peaceful co-existence between the two species. However, standing between them and this goal is the Rosenkreuz Orden, a group of vampire extremists who manipulate the two sides and pit them against each other. To combat them, the Vatican special operations group "AX," led by Cardinal Caterina, must use everything they have - even a vampire who preys on the blood of other vampires.

Does anyone know from where i can download trinity blood the manga? as i cannot find it anywhere,all i find is the anime but i already have and since there always a difference between them i thought about downloading the manga.
There's more where that came from if anyone is interested.
I haven't read any of the manga apart from what chapters are presented here. I have seen some of the anime though and I loved it so much I actually ordered a limited edition box that's due out at the end of this month! I really like it. I love the OP theme too, which is awesome. I have heard the manga is based on a series of novels, which I don't think have been translated into English yet.
If anyone has any more info to offer on the anime or manga please,please let on! I for one, am desperate for more info, but lacking in time to do any proper research and I'm sure others would be interested to know more too.
wow!! i guess i should get on board. I loved this anime soo much. I never tried the manga. But with the the way it ended, i have been hoping for a second season. i guess i should start downloading the manga now.
