Vampire Princess Miyu. Is she friend, or fiend? As the eldritch Shinma strive to obtain a foothold upon the mortal plane, Spiritualist Himiko seeks the truth. Join us now for four elegantly chilling journeys into the Occult -- Japanese style!
Each volume of Vampire Princess Miyu contains 2 complete OVAs.
"Unearthly Kyoto": Himiko travels to the ancient capital of Japan to exorcise a slumbering child, amidst rumors of vam- piric attacks. Although the exorcism is a failure, a hint that a vampire may be involved sets Himiko upon a new trail. Soon she meets the mysterious, childlike Miyu and her silent, enigmatic compan- ion. Is Miyu behind the attacks? Or does she, too, seek the real culprit? And if so, why? When Himiko witnesses Miyu bestowing the kiss of blood, she is sure she has the answer...
"A Banquet of Marionettes": Himiko is hired to investigate several mysterious disappearances at a school. At the site of each vanishing, a strange doll has been briefly glimpsed. Here she again meets Miyu, now apparently a student, and is told in no uncertain terms to mind her own business. Miyu has designs on the body, and perhaps the soul, of the school hero, Kei. But she has some competition! Soon Kei must choose which he most prizes; eternal life... or eternal love.
"Fragile Armor": Himiko agrees to help Miyu defeat a ghastly armored monster. In return, Miyu tells the tale of how she met Larva, her silent companion. Later, while investigating the origin of the monster's armor, Himiko learns of the tragic fate of a husband and wife. Meanwhile, a beautiful young man with a ghastly laugh circles and waits. Who is he? What is the secret of the Armor? And what of the Shinma? Can Himiko put the pieces of the puzzle together in time?
"Frozen Time": Himiko travels to Kamakura, a childhood home. There, she dreams of herself as a child, running in terror from a mysterious mansion. Now the mansion has a new tenant: Miyu. Miyu at last tells all -- of her discovery of her true nature after her first meeting with Larva, of the secret concealed by Miyu's parents, and of the night that Darkness and the Shinma gathered together. And, finally, Himiko realizes what it is that has bound her destiny together with Miyu's... forever!
