    Vampire Princess Miyu TV

    I wanted to know what other people thought of this since I never see much discussion on it. I was able to get the out of print boxset off EBAY for only $65, and I was psyched to finally watch this.

    I really enjoyed the episodic feel to the show, and the interactions of the Shinma on people's lives in each episode, and how it didn't always focus on Miyu alone. The characters were awesome, especially Miyu and Larva. The dub was thoroughly enjoyable as well for the most part, and I was really emersed into the world.

    The ending was very unexpected and surprising. I loved how it showed the full extent of her melancholic destiny. So what does everyone else who's seen it think?

    I actually enjoyed this show. I rented a DVD from my local Blockbuster. I was sad to have only 3 or 4 eppies.

    Now don't mistake the 1988 OVA series (which only had 4 episodes) with the 1997-98 TV series remake which had 26 episodes. In both cases, Vampire Princess is one of the better Vampire/Demon hunter anime series...

    Aye I saw the OVA years ago... dubbed too. I really liked it, despite the bad dubbing it had.
    I've been meaning to buy the TV series for months, but never get around to it. Might think about buying it soon *since it's $119 over here for the boxset (legit and brand new)

    Hikari Sakurai, you might want to try Ebay if you don't mind it. (I know some people refuse to use Ebay.) That's where I found mine for only $65, and I saw one yesterday that was brand new, it has about 5 or 4 days left, and the starting bid was a penny. It's really worth it. I put the charm bracelet that comes with it on my keychain, and it looks really cool. <----- is a nerd.

    I don't buy DVDs off ebay anymore because they are usually always bootleg, or the legit ones are in America which would cost me an arm and a leg in shipping costs and the exchange rate (I live in Australia)
    Trust me, even if I buy it for $65 US, I'd still end up paying $100AUS for it..... it's just easier for me to swing in after work into Kinokuniya and buy it.

    I have all the dvds of this series, and I really enjoyed it. It was hard watching Miyu struggle with her emotions for her friend after she became her enemy. Miyu really grew in that series, from a somewhat cold-blooded killer to someone who learned that there is value in human lives. Her realtionship with Larva was also very well expressed.

    And I remember now, at the top of my lungs in my arms, she dies, she dies.
