No one knows exactly how Junpei (a strongman), Airi (a Hollywood actress) and Ritsuko (a teenager), and their T-74 Tank found themselves marooned in a strange world populated by a wide variety of elves. But when a magic spell cast by the elf's elder CELCIA, designed to send the strangers back to their own world, splits into five distinct fragments (that now appear as tattoos on the bodies of five young female elves), the stage is set for an epic quest by this mixed trio! Their mission new mission: track down and examine every female elf they can lay their hands on until they find the missing pieces of their ticket back home.

Naked Elves...whoo hoo! by Fangs October 25, 2003 - 3:25 PM PDT

Those Who Hunt Elves Vol. 1 is an inane anime, but it is fun to watch. The extras are almost nonexistent. And the characters are stereotyped to the point of rigidity. There is a storyline, but it is not presented in chronological order. It wasn't until I watched episode 2 that I had any idea why the main characters were running around stripping elves naked. And it isn't until episode 6, that I had any idea of how and why Junpei, Airi and Ritsuko are even in this enchanted land.

Nonetheless, I did find the parts where they stripped the elves hilarious. I also enjoyed the way that the characters interacted with each other. Their reactions were predictable, but funny. Also, the animation is decent and there are 6 episodes on the DVD! I'm going to watch the next DVD, but I'd only recommend this series to those who like silly anime.

Where can I find a decent dragon on DVD?
To the West - Legend of The Monkey King
Maybe, but not really based on the ancient Chinese legend.
Check out the description lines for the details on each title's Monkey King roots.
