Awesome news for anime fans! Vampire Princess Miyu is coming back to DVD! The US-based anime licensing company Maiden Japan recently announced its acquisition of the hit animated series Vampire Princess Miyu! Based on the manga of the same name by creators Narumi Kakinouchi and Toshiki Hirano. They are bringing back all 26 episodes of the show to US fans! The show was previously released in North America about 10 years ago, but finding copies of those DVDs is a pain and they tend to be low-quality. But now we are getting fresh new copies!
“Born of Vampire and Human, doomed to remain trapped in the body of a teenager forever, she is the Chosen One: Mankind’s last defense against the forces of Darkness. With her once greatest foe, the Shinma named Larva, as her sole companion, she stands eternally poised at the bridge between two worlds. She is charged with the duty of tracking down supernatural beings who seek to harm the human race and banishing them back to the dark realms from whence they came. But this ultimate hunter is a creature of the Night herself, and though her human half gives her the ability to walk by day, she still needs the blood of the living in order to survive. And though she may use the name Miyu Yamano when dealing with mere mortals, since the loss of her human memories she is increasingly drawn back towards the Darkness, even as those on the other side prepare to target her! Get ready to hunt the night as the death-dance of undead predator and prey unleashes true Hell on Earth in Vampire Princess Miyu!”
Maiden Japan will be distributing Vampire Princess Miyu in conjunction with home video distributor Section 23 (Clannad, Highschool of the Dead, Appleseed) with the entire series to be released in both bilingual English DVD and digital formats. A release date has yet to be revealed.
