A deep and brooding experience, but excellent writing. Subtitled is preferred format.

Kyuuketsuki Miyu - "Vampire Princess" Miyu. A young girl with strange and extraordinary power, with an even stranger mission. This is one of the most engagingly written Japanese animations I have ever encountered. The desire to dissect the enigma that is Miyu is personified in the "spiritualist" Himiko.(not mentioned in these credits). "Miyu" is a very dark and foreboding animation about a young girl with vampire heritage who must dispatch stray Shin-ma back to their endless slumber in The Dark. She is ageless, and very, very much a realist. Miyu does not give pity, does not show remorse, but manages to still have a human side. It takes many episodes to see the stories unfurl and the history reveal itself, and ends in classic Japanese style. That is to say, you are as likely to see the protagonist and innocent bystanders extinguished as the villains destroyed. This is a "Tom and Jerry" cartoon, after all. This is presented as real life with a demonic and heartless twist. The dialogue and cinematography make this a classic tragedy, but it's depth and subject matter may take a bit to stomach. Do not expect to laugh at their exploits, everyone here is very serious and has a great deal both ahead and behind them. The characters are strong enough that you really want to see more, just to know who they are. Not for the faint of heart :)
