Is someone kidnapping your local virgins? Are mysterious entities sucking the souls out of the peasants? Do you have a sorceress infestation that just won't go away?

If the charms of the voluptuous Chocolate and Tira Misu can't persuade the naughty wizard to change his ways, then manly Gateau Mocha, suave Marron Glace or oversexed Carrot Glace will stop him cold. Don't miss the titillating beginning of SORCERER HUNTERS!

Light-hearted feel of Slayers with a healthy dose of S&M parody by hneline1 April 20, 2003 - 9:15 PM PDT

Ok, so there's nothing really redeeming or thoughtful in this series, but I must admit that I was laughing enough that I will definitely rent the next DVD. Sorcerer Hunters (in Japanese, Bakuretsu Hunter) has the light-hearted feel of Slayers in a sword and sorcery universe, with a hint of Charlie's Angels because the group is given a job every episode by a semi-mysterious boss, mixed with a healthy dose of S&M parody.

Yes, it's the S&M that makes this series different from other fantasy quest anime, but surprisingly it's very tame -- there is no nudity, no panty shots, no bloody hacking, no sex, no graphic scenes. It is NOT hentai. If it weren't for Chocolate Misu's garrot and Tira Misu's whip when in their busty dominatrix costumes, their obvious enjoyment at keeping the bad people and especially Carrot Glace in line, and the sly winks at sexual mores in the plots (e.g. a young sorceress likes to collect pretty boys by turning them into stone but likes to whip ugly ones), this could be just another sword and sorcery comedy. As it is, there are hilarious moments because of the unexpected overtones without the scenes being gross or dirty -- that is, if you don't mind sexual innuendo.

Just keep in mind that this is a somewhat mindless comedy. Also, some of the repeated scenes get old pretty quickly, such as when Chocolate and Tira throw off their cloaks to change into their .. er.. power outfits. So far, the stories are episodic with each plot concluding within an episode, but there are hints of a larger purpose for our band of unlikely heroes. I look forward to seeing if the plot thickens.
