...the dark preys on the innocent yet light still sheds thru
Let me write a better review for this great anime. Kyuuketsuki Miyu (Vampire Princess Miyu) is a television adaption of the underrated OAV series of the same title. In the TV version, Miyu, a vampire whose duty is to vanquish demons called Shinma, enrolls into a school under the name of Yamano. Being the Guardian and all, Miyu watches out for acts of the Shinma, who like to prey on the innocent and toy with their emotions and lives. Along with her allies- Larva, a good yet mysterious Shinma, and Shiina, a rabbit-like Shinma who can seek out others of its own kind, and the ghostly yet competitive Reiha -Miyu faces a long battle. The TV series, in my opinion, is extremely darker than the OAV ever could accomplish. Miyu, despite her rule of not caring about people but only the Shinma, begins to feel more human towards people and accepting their ways. The horror is increased heavily in here, giving some the creeps. Hopefully one day, this splendid series can reach the US for commercial release. It's too good to miss out on.
