This review is from: Vampire Princess Miyu (Vol. 1) [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Indeed as the previous reviewer pointed out this is NOT fast-paced. Quite the opposite. But it indeed it has a good story. Very good actually. It's a very haunting and poetic tale centered around a Vampire girl named Miyu who's duty it is to protect the earth from Demongods who escaped the abyss. However there's more behind this than you would expect... For instance Miyu is not a vampire in the traditional sense of the word, so don't expect a Dracula type character. But I don't want to give too many spoilers.
Well developed characters, subtle but extremely effective animation, a deep emotional and sad story and great cultural referances.
If you like beautiful, sad stories buy this one. It's one of the best ever made. If you only like lots of violence and fast action then don't get this one cause that's not what this one is about.
