| A classic that holds up well because of it's quality.
"Corpse Princess" has surprising depth even in the first few episodes, addressing the "Abyss" issue and how those who fight monsters are themselves monsters of a sort.

Pros:
  • Excellent animation for the era.
  • Story has good depth.
  • Good character growth.
  • "Fan Service" is handled in a very amusing way in the 1st season.


Cons:
  • Some inconsistencies with the animation.
  • 2nd season introduces some silly "Fan Service".
  • No "real" ending, final episode (non-OVA) ends in a cliff hanger that would be typically resolved on the next episode.
