Trivia

The name Larva is taken from Roman mythology, which like Lemures refers to a restless spirit of the dead. Many of the Western Shinma appearing in the series follow a naming convention drawn from various European demons and spirits. Larva's name and signature mask also have been inspired from the White, ghostly Venetian Carnival mask Larva also called Volto. See more »

Deep and not in a cliched way
8 December 2000 | by See all my reviews

To me this is not as visually interesting as the 1997 movie, but it has a similar visual style. The plots are complex and not cliched. Just because a character is one of the main characters doesnÕt mean that they might not be killed off. The plots are less heavily based on Japanese mythology that in the later movie version. They are the short ironic plots sort of like in television series like Tales From the Crypt, or The Outer Limits. This is not in terms of genre, but main characters die, and there is usually a bit of irony, also this series is better than the earlier two because the plots are less

predictable, respectively you donÕt always know that people will die, and the earth will be destroyed. It is also important to point out that this is geared towards adults. This is not a slapstick cartoon, but actually addresses philosophical and moral issues, and in fact has no comic relief. Miyu has the ability to grant immortality, and the decision of whether or not to do this in specific cases is an issue. In action is not an option because she must drink to live. There are also characters who parralell aspects of MiyuÕs life, most obviously the girl who can live believing that she killed her mother or die, as Miyu would without taking blood. Miyu is allowed to determine her fate. As opposed to the 1997 movie this shows Miyu as darker and more evil, and shows more of here past. She must drink blood and does so for food, not to give people release in the form of death, or immortality. Also there is an element of greed to feeding. All in all I would say that this is worth watching, and recommend it.
