I found this series in the UK on the now long defunct Anime network on SkyB, taping it on VHS through the late night to catch its crop of anime.
The very fine English dub is the one I’m used to and fits the characters to a tee.
A young witch, Robin joins the STNJ to hunt witches, who are deemed dangerous to society. But witches hunting witches, both monitored by the increasing shady STNJ and the church you can sense trouble coming.
Robin is not drawn pretty but you still feel for her character as she learns about her place in this world of magic and danger.
A rewarding series with a good thought-provoking end.
Music is great, CD available, probably!
The navigation menu has some small red slash marks that lead to the final episodes selection menu on a couple of disks. The series is indeed complete.
Do not miss out on the gem…
Six star missed out due to menu confusion!:)
The anime legends boxsets are a really good investment. You get the full series on good quality DVD's for a very reasonable price. I didn't find any problems with the DVDs themselves, except the penultimate disk where it didn't tell me there were 5 episodes on it. Other than that they all worked well and are a very enjoyable watch. Well worth it!
This set includes all twenty-six episodes of the `Witch Hunter Robin' series spread over six discs. The series has some nice animation, a good English dub and a brilliant soundtrack. The first half of the series is pretty much an episodic Witch-of-the-Week format with the main plot of the series only really coming into life in the second half of the series. Despite this once the plot does get going it becomes incredibly interesting and absorbing. The characters are mostly interesting and well developed and I did begin to feel sorry for some of them towards the end of the series.
The only really minor problem that I have with the series is that it had a somewhat unsatisfying and ambiguous ending. This isn't to say that the ending was bad but I do feel that the series could have done with a better send-off than it got.
The tone and style of the series is probably series is probably closest to such series as `Darker than Black' and `Ergo Proxy' than anything else and I would say that if you enjoyed these series then you should also enjoy `Witch Hunter Robin'. Overall I feel the series is worth a low five but a five nonetheless.
The series itself really deserves 4 stars. There is a nice mix of supernatural and thriller elements and the second half of the series reveals nearly all of the characters to be somehow different from what I had expected.
The animation was probaly done on a low budget. Most of that budget seems to have been spent on the supernatural fights between the witches, which have some really good effects animation (fire, lightening etc.). Other parts often look somewhat static with only the mouth of a character being animated for dialog.
Only complaint (and it was the same when I saw it first) is the dubbing is poor. If you can stand it, watch in Japanese with English subtitles - so much better!
