If you want to hear me ramble, here's the reasons why I like/dislike them....
Vampire Princess Miyu OVA
was awesome. There's mystery, action, interesting characters, and freaky concepts. The animation is, of course, getting a little dated, but I love this one. It's one of my favorites.
was cool as well. Arucard has to be the best anime vampire out there, because he just takes so much enjoyment in being a vampire that it's hard not to like him. Violence and action are always fun. Later episodes declined a little in quality, but I thought they were still a lot of fun. The music was kick-ass, as well.
Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust
was good entertainment. I liked the storyline and the complexity of the characters, and the action was awesome. It's a little too bad that they never made a Japanese track for it; even if it was meant for English audiences, it would have been nice to hear it in Japanese. Although the dub track was pretty good, for the most part.
Vampire Hunter D
was good. It's been awhile since I've seen it, but the characters were cool. Storyline was the typical "girl targetted by vampire must be saved"... but they pulled it off in an interesting way.
was the first vampire anime I saw. It was good, and I still dust it off occasionally and pop it in the player when I'm bored. It's not my favorite, but I liked it and I wouldn't mind seeing more.
Master of Mosquiton
was average. Inaho was annoying as hell, and I kept cheering on evil Mosquie in hopes he'd manage to kill her... The dub was not that good, and I would have liked to see the subtitled version but I wasn't able to find it. Rasputin's voice cracked me up, and although he was mind-meltingly dull at times, some of his statements were hilarious, like "little monkey girl." Or maybe they were just hilarious because it was late at night and I was desperately searching for something to laugh at.
Vampire Princess Miyu TV
suffers from the "monster-a-week" phenomenon. The first few episodes were interesting, but later episodes in the series lose pretty much all interest, IMO. I've only seen the first two dvds, but I don't have any interest in seeing more.
