Huntik: Secrets & Seekers

Legend has it that long ago there was a fierce battle ensuing on earth where humans were fighting against unimaginable evil.  The only humans that were strong enough to battle this evil were humans known as Seekers, who have the ability to invoke mystical creatures of great magical power known as Titans. The Seekers eventually forced the evil into the bowels of the earth where they were locked away. As the centuries faded on, the Titans slowly disappeared into the dormant earth to be completely forgotten.

Fast forward to present day and Lok Lambert is sitting in a European high school class itching for some excitement and some Indiana Jones style adventure. His adventure comes in the form of a amulet and diary that which he discovers in his estranged father's ancient artefact and is mysteriously perused by magic wielding agents who are part of the faction known as the Organisation, a group of evil agents who want nothing more than to take over the world and aren't going to let anyone stand in their way.

With a mired of questions and not many answers, Lok meets Dante Vale, a member of a group known as the Huntik Organisation, a collection of Seekers who use their magical powers and Titans calling to preserve life on earth. With the help of Dante, Lok builds on his magical powers and learns of his Titan creature, and along with his friend Sophie Casterwill, the trio start their own adventure of finding out the secrets of Loks missing father, while trying to escape the evil Organisation.

Huntik has a strong aim at the younger generation of anime viewers with a strong target of revealing very little to try and keep interest peaked for the entire series. This animation was actually written in Italy so much of Europe is used as the backdrops and it has a strong western culture theme as opposed to a lot of the popular anime on television at the moment. Parents could be pretty happy with their children watching this one, instead of focusing on violence and fighting scenes, the storylines run along a adventure route, similar to those of the Tintin animations of old. While some of the music and animation shows sign of a non established franchise budget. The five episodes released on this disk are pretty addictive and will leave you wanting to get your hands on the rest of the series.
