Synopsis
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!

Doesn't come together by pdchapin November 10, 2006 - 1:36 PM PST

Slow moving and atmospheric, this series never really came together in a way that would have made the payoff worth the time it took to watch it. Maybe something was lost in the translation but at the end I still couldn't tell you exactly what had happened. And worse, I didn't really care. On the plus side, it did continue the anime tradition of having characters who defy easy good/bad guy classifications.
