The adventures of Miyu continue in Vampire Princess Miyu Volume 2: Fragile Armor and Frozen Time. AnimEigo has prepared the new volume as a nice little DVD package.
When spiritualist Himiko continues her pursuit of Miyu, Princess of the Vampires, she does not have to look far. For Miyu comes to Himiko, and offers her a bargain — the truth about herself, in return for Himiko’s assistance in her battle against the demonic Shinma. Join us now for the conclusion of our journey into the Occult — Japanese style! In “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, 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? In “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 Shinma gathered together. And, finally, Himiko realizes what it is that has bound her destiny together with Miyu’s…forever
