The author behind Dance in the Vampire Bund, Nozomu Tamaki, made an announcement on Twitter that he will be launching a new manga for the series. The tentative title for the sequel is Dance in the Vampire Bund A.S.O.  The new series will serve as a continuation of Dance in the Vampire Bund II: Scarlet Order.  At this time, there is no announcement of a release date; however, we did get a generic message stating that release information will be discussed at a later time. 

The original series also received an announcement from Tamaki stating that it will be re-released as two-in-one omnibus volumes. These omnibus volumes will come with special color pages as well as some new short stories about the Mina character.  The series received a television anime back in 2010 and Seven Seas currently holds the license for the manga’s distribution. describes the parent story as follows:

On live television, Mina Tepes, the ruler of all vampires, reveals the existence of her species to the world and states her plan to build a sanctuary in Japan for vampires, called the Vampire Bund. Using her family’s wealth to pay off the nation’s debt, they have agreed to let her build this safe-haven for her fellow creatures of the night. But not everyone is so easily swayed by Mina’s influence, as her announcement brings about conflict with humans who believe that the queen’s quest for peace is a façade.

Akira Kaburagi does not believe in vampires and gets uneasy whenever they are brought up, although he has yet to realize why. Apart from suffering a head injury a year ago, he lives on blissfully until he meets Mina. She triggers within him memories of a life he had long forgotten, and he soon begins protecting her without understanding why. But Akira’s secret is far stranger than he could have ever thought possible—he discovers that he is a werewolf, sworn from birth to protect the vampire queen, even if it costs him his life. Now, as these two dance a rondo of death in the Vampire Bund, Mina and Akira find out just how deep their bond goes.
