Master of Mosquiton 99
Inaho Hitomebore is a girl with everything. She's beautiful, rich, smart... but not rich enough (for her anyway). Inaho is always trying to hatch a scheme to make more money, and she thought she hit the mother load when an actual vampire showed up. She managed to defeat the vampire (named Mosquiton), but that wasn't enough, she revived him, and now he has to obey her every command. Needless to say, Mosquiton is less than enthusiastic about the situation, especially since Inaho drags him on all of her quests to find the all powerful O-parts.
This TV series comes after the OVA, which proved the concept behind Master of Mosquiton had potential. The way it plays out in the TV series is completely brain dead.
The animation and designs are fair for a TV series. Nothing much is accomplished in the story. It has a few funny moments now and then, but for a show that is supposed to a comedy, a laugh every now and then isn't really hitting the mark. The plot mainly follows a romp around various places looking for the O-parts. Predictably there is a competing force also looking for them, leading up to the more serious end plot but I can't say that went anywhere interesting.
The worst part of this show is Inaho: a completly obnoxious main character I couldn't stand. I suppose if there is one good part about her, you really do sympathize with Mosquiton being under her control.
Being forgotten so quickly says a lot about how Master of Mosquiton never really went anywhere. If you are interested in the franchise, watch the OVA.
