Trinity Blood, Vol. 1 (v. 1)
1 journaler for this copy...
When we first meet Abel, he seems to be a very ditzy priest, easily lost and rather clumsy. He meets young Esther, a nun, in a city that's being beset by vampires, and where there's danger - and treachery - at every turn. It isn't long before a gloating vampire finds out just what this goofy-seeming priest really is.
Later on in the battle against the encroaching vampires, Abel gets some reinforcements, including the android Tres (code name: Gunslinger), whose combination of deadly accuracy and clinical battle-savvy cause Abel to murmur "You're so dreamy!" [Tres is very good-looking, but I suspect it's his lack of those messy emotions that's more appealing to our hero.]
Not that there's time for admiration, what with all the combat and plotting. And this is just the first volume... I know from the anime that things get very, very convoluted very quickly, with religion and diplomacy and threats of genocide all involved.
[The TV Tropes page for the series has a lot of interesting/entertaining/amusing info, but beware of spoilers.]
