Originally posted on my other blog 1000 Anime in October during my Halloween viewing, the TV series spin off of the manga of the same name is sadly a case of how I hate episodic storytelling in anime unless it does its best to make every story compelling, or connect it into even a loose framework of some interest. That may come off as a spoiler for the review I'm linking to below, but the experience if nothing else, alongside an ending that would've been great by itself if not with the context of how its set up, is worthy of being read if not seeing the actual series. In lieu to it, the late eighties straight-to-video version is still worthy of interest for me, but in terms of great disappointment, Vampire Princess Miyu is the first big example for this series of reviews of horror television.

A link to the full review is available HERE. Be warned, there are spoilers within it.
