    Sunrise/Bandai Visual, 2002

    Directed by Shukoh Murase (Gasaraki, Street Fighter II: The Movie)
    Not Rated. Contains violence and mature situations.

    Deep in the streets of Tokyo, witches walk along Japanese society. To keep an eye on these witches, the STNJ is formed. Their main objective is to hunt down the lawbreaking witches and contain them.

    Robin Sena, a 15-year-old girl, joins the STNJ as a replacement for a Hunter killed months ago. What makes her unique from the other Witch hunters is that she is a practitioner of the Craft.

    Currently playing in Japan, Witch Hunter Robin marks the directorial debut of character designer Shukoh Murase.

    Story: A
    Though slow-paced in the first few episodes Witch Hunter Robin has a great story to make up with its minimal action. Robin is probably the best chick in black since The Big-O's Dorothy.

    Animation: A+
    Witch Hunter Robin uses excellent artwork and digital animation reminiscent of Sunrise's other breakthrough series, Cowboy Bebop.

    Soundtrack: A+
    The opening theme "Shell", along with the soundtrack, blends perfectly with Witch Hunter Robin's dark settings.

    The Bottom Line
    Witch Hunter Robin is probably the best anime TV series of 2002. Make sure to add this to your must-buy list for next year.

    pretty good anime. not 1 of the best I've seen but very entertaining.

    the real story starts with a plot twist and secrets, but you won't get any spoilers from me :)

    thats the way most 26+ ep series are, the first dozen or so just introduce characters and thier interactions with the other characters, then the real plot is finally revealed. look @ kenshin, the main plot of it wasn;t even hatched untill ~ep26

    Seen all the episodes they showed on cartoon network, good stuff. Would have never heard of it but for Adult Swim on Cartoon Network. Thanks God for Adult Swim.
