Vampire Princess Miyu is an interesting case, beyond just being a fun vampire anime. As each decade of anime has its strengths and weaknesses, this OVA stands as a quintessential representative of the 80s, with all its ups and downs. While bearing this identity of the time in which it was made, it manages to tell a rich, action-packed story that remains engaging to this day.

Ultimately, Kyuuketsuhime Miyu is a peculiar series ...
