** In the fourth OAV, [[spoiler: Miyu's first human "victim" was a schoolgirl. She tearfully explains to Larva that she was simply [[StupidSexyFlanders thinking of how pretty she was]] while standing near her, then she lost control of her powers and forcibly drained the other girl of blood, [[AccidentalMurder killing her by accident]]...

* MonsterMisogyny: In the first OAV, all of the [[MonsterOfTheWeek Shinma of the week]] victims were female: two schoolgirls (including Miyahito's girlfriend Ryouko), a college student, an OfficeLady and a HouseWife. [[labelnote:And we actually see two of the deaths on-screen]]: Ryouko's (the Shinma leaps on the girl and wraps itself around her, then it leaves and when Miyahito reaches for Ryoko, she falls dead in his arms) and the HouseWife's (she's picking some silks in a store, the nearby window's glass cracks a little, and all of a sudden we see her dead on the floor.)[[/labelnote]] Supposedly, that's because [[spoiler: the little girl "commanding" the Shinma considered herself a vampire after her parents's death and her life sort-of "ended" when she made the DealWithTheDevil, therefore the Shinma believed he had to kill other women since they had the lives that Aiko couldn't aspire to anymore]].

* OlderSidekick: Larva.

to:

* OlderSidekick: Larva.Larva, who in the backstory is revealed to be already the Shinma equivalent of a young man when Miyu was still a teenager.


Added DiffLines:

* TokyoIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse: Absolutely averted in the OAV's. The first three happen in Kyoto (and the first one is actually named after the city), the last one takes place in Kamakura. Ironically, ''both'' cities used to be capitals of Japan before Tokyo ever was.

The OVA has the distinction of being the very first anime to be fansubbed, way back in 1989 by the people that later formed AnimEigo. They later outright licensed the OVA in 1992, and released it to VHS, Laserdisc, and (eventually) DVD, with an English dub produced in 1996. TokyoPop licensed and released the TV series to VHS and DVD beginning in 2001, but the show was rescued and reissued by [[Section23Films Maiden Japan]] in 2012. The manga received an incomplete release in the US by Studio [=IronCat=], who disbanded before releasing the whole series.

* IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight: [[spoiler: [[TearJerker Horribly subverted]]. A woman sacrificed herself to the Shinma to bring her husband BackFromTheDead, but he CameBackWrong as a servant of said Shinma and without any memories. Miyu noticed this and deduced that the now-Shinma wouldn't stop killing people and wrecking havoc unless he remembered his past, so while fighting him she showed him visions of his past and tried to make him remember. And he did... but since he was now a Shinma, he was shot to death by the police.]]
