There are witches in the
world and they seek to take over and present a real danger to the normal
people of Earth. These are not witches in what we'd think the word to mean,
they are not women with big noses and broomsticks, but folks with powers to
destroy. A task force has been started up to combat the trouble called the STN
and is headquartered in America. Members of the STN are called Hunters and
when one of them is killed in the Japanese STNJ, a young girl possessing great
powers is sent to fill the vacancy. That young girl is called Robin.
Hunters themselves are possessed of powers
that are supernatural, however they use them for the greater good and catching
witches of course. Robin is a master Hunter and is also empowered with a gift
called Crafting whereby she can summon fire from nowhere and direct as a
powerful weapon to assist her. She also has advanced knowledge of other forms
of Crafting that the others in her team have no knowledge of. She's new on the
team and there is an initial hesitance to allow her to fully participate in
any capture of witches.
Adding to the tension the team are facing is
the fact that Robin's powers don't seem to be fully under her own control
initially, making their team leader Amon worrying whether she'll be reliable
under fire as Robin's team of Hunters in the USA were trained to kill not
capture witches as the Japanese unit do.
There are five exciting episodes on this DVD
that you will have trouble stopping at just one. I found that I watched it all
the way through the first time as I just had to know what was going to happen
next! I can't wait for the rest of this series and am expecting nothing but
greatness from it. Highly recommended.
Good quality all the way
through this one with no complaints to be made at all. It's shown in a full
screen 4:3 ratio and doesn't seem to lack at all because of it.
2.0 mix which doesn't fully use the bass at
all so there in no real subwoofer workout. It's clear and audible at all times
and all things said an done, once again is a job that you cannot complain
Look, there's a good
list here however as far as extras go, it didn't do much for me and I didn't
really care either as the series was so good in and of itself. I would have
liked to see some creator interviews telling us more about the witches and
Hunters and why the witches present such a threat.
Instead we've got some
variations on the opening and closing and some production and stills gallery
sections. You can also take the slick out and turn it inside out if you are
starved for things to do with the disc after watching it a few times.
