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 about.


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.
